There’s no better political weapon than accusing someone, or some institution, of ‘racism’. That political word-weapon is used all the time. And now we have a slightly more discerning word-weapon - ‘Islamophobia’.
Just the other day there was story about a British airline pilot who was arrested over a possible terrorist plot. Now you can guess what this suspect said. Yes, after loosing his job, he is now claiming to be the victim of not only ‘racial discrimination’, but also of ‘religious discrimination’. However, it is already the case that religious discrimination is actually seen as racial discrimination. That is, if Muslims can’t have their wants and demands fulfilled by the state, then they simply cry ‘religious discrimination’. Better still, cry ‘racial discrimination’ too because the penalties for such a sin can be huge. And, in any case, it’s harder to get your head around, legally speaking, religious discrimination.
More specifically, this Muslim airline pilot is suspected of ‘planning to use an aircraft as part of a hostile or terrorist act’.
Shami Chakrabarti, or Liberty, may not like this man’s arrest, but I reckon that the authorities had good reason to arrest him. Detectives found flight maps of the UK and literature from an extreme Islamic group which is banned in many countries - Hizb ut-Tahrir.
Yes, I know. It’s not exactly a surprise that a pilot would have flight maps of the UK. But flight maps of routes and areas the pilot doesn’t use professionally? In any case, that was just the original investigation. A later investigation found that the pilot had once said that the 9/11 attacks were ‘comparable to the United States’ wars in Afghanistan and Iraq’. This man seems to have conveniently forgotten that the ‘Afghan war’, or America’s role in it, was largely a response to 9/11. The Taliban and al-Qaeda were bombing, killing and abusing way before American intervention. And let’s not forget the fact that we got rid of the genocidal Saddam Hussein in 2003. He had already killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow Muslims in Iraq, as well as in Kurdistan and Iran. So let’s get these chicken-and-egg scenarios the right way around.
It also seems that this pilot was fired up by his reading of Noam Chomsky (the extreme far leftist). You can’t arrest someone for that, sure. However, this pilot is wrong about Chomsky on at least one thing. He said that Chomsky ‘is anti-war’. Really? What do the words ‘anti-war’ actually mean? Just about nothing, really. But in Chomsky’s case, as well as in the cases of other far leftists and Islamists, ‘anti-war’, or ‘stop the war’, simply means that you are against the wars fought exclusively by ‘Western capitalist powers’ - as well as by Israel - against the Brown Homogeneously Oppressed. In fact, Chomsky has had a lot of good things to say not only about Chairman Mao, but also about the homicidal maniac, Pol Pot, too. Yeah! Very ‘anti-war’!
*) A former Big Issue seller has just lost his job because he was accused of making a racist remark against a Romanian Big Issue seller. The Romanian had ‘moved into his patch’ and thus left the British seller without an income. However, the grossly politically-correct Big Issue took the Romanian’s word against Paul Kelly’s (from Salford). It must be that Romanians are deemed to be Brown if Muslim - hence the racism.
If you want to remain ideologically pure, then the Brown Oppressed must always be believed over the White Oppressor - even if that white oppressor is homeless and doesn’t receive any state benefits.
This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy
