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
I've had articles published in The Conservative Online, American Thinker, Intellectual Conservative, Human Events, Faith Freedom, Brenner Brief (Broadside News), New English Review, etc... (Paul Austin Murphy's Philosophy can be found here.)

Remember the EDL's Danny Parker - Victim of UK Sharia Law

Why was Danny Parker sentenced for simply chanting ‘Muslim bombers off our streets!’? Is chanting illegal? No; not as far as I know. Is it illegal to be critical of Muslim bombers? I don’t think so. So why did Danny Parker receive a stiff sentence for demonstrating against Islamic terrorists? Are we missing something? Which part of what he did was deemed illegal or even anti-social?

Again, it must be something else which accounted for his sentence.

That something else must be racism (or ‘Islamophobia’).
The state, or the legal system, seems to have redefined what racism is. Now racism includes the criticism of religion, or Islam, and even the criticism of its believers, Muslims. This has effectively made the criticism of Islam, or of Muslims AS Muslims, a racist act - an illegal act. Being critical of Islam, or even of Muslim bombers, has been turned into a racist - therefore illegal - act. What this basically means is that the British state, or the criminal justice system, has effectively used sharia blasphemy law to deal with Danny Parker; just as it had with Tommy Robinson and many other members of the EDL. (E.g. that guy in Carlisle who received a very stiff sentence for burning the Koran.) What I mean by this is that the criticism of Islam in Muslim or Islamic countries is illegal because in these societies the state and religion, Islam, are effectively fused together (mosque and state). Thus to be critical of Islam, or guilty of blasphemy, is also to be critical of the state because in Islam, in many instances, the state is Islamic - the state represents Islam.

This is not to say, of course, that the legal authorities have classified these cases as ‘sharia law’. But that’s what it is. The punishment of all criticisms of Islam, or of Muslims AS Muslims, has to be some kind of blasphemy law, suitably reinterpreted - for secular/non-Muslim (UK) contexts - as ‘racism’ or ‘Islamophobia’.
