Don’t you hate it when multiculturalism bites you in the ass?
African leaders last week rejected President Obama’s self-righteous proclamation of American moral superiority with respect to recognizing the rights of homosexuals. He criticized his host nations’ refusal to accept homosexuality and gay unions as normal.
Cardinal John Njue, Archbishop of Nairobi and president of the Kenyan Episcopal Conference, effectively schooled him on both good manners and good faith:
“Those people who have already ruined their society…let them not become our teachers to tell us where to go,” said Njue in response to Obama’s statements promoting same-sex marriage. “I think we need to act according to our own traditions and our faiths.”
And from Kenya, homeland of Obama’s father, lest we ever forget, Deputy President William Ruto said:
“Those who believe in other things, that is their business…We believe in God.”
That must have served as a particularly bracing rebuke: our el Presidente is accustomed to being idolized by the masses and underlings. His proclamations are never, ever seriously challenged by the little people. Bad enough he’s had to be annoyed by that little ex-KGB gnat from Russia, but who, exactly, do these tin pot African leaders think they are?
So listen up progressives, here’s the take-away: you can’t have it both ways. If you cram multiculturalism down our throats, you can’t then turn around and tell other cultures to modify their societal norms to comport with your concept of superior moral codes. That just seems to be so, so…colonial! But since Progressives like our President suffer from either an inability to recognize contradiction or a high tolerance for incongruity, this internal conflict eludes them.
Let me see if I can make this perfectly clear; don’t tell me that I have to accept everyone else’s values, morals, standards and mores, if you intend to impose your values, standards, morals and mores on those cultures you find lacking in the moral superiority department.
Yet the people who trip over themselves in their rush to accept the Muslim sense and sensibilities seem oblivious to the intolerance endemic in that cult. How is it they give Muslims a pass for their rather low tolerance for homosexuals very existence, i.e., they kill them, yet stand at the ready to condemn Christians who are “intolerant” of homosexual marriage?
This is my “evolved” position on the Islam faith: as long as they refuse to bifurcate their faith such that we can readily identify the “moderate” Muslims from the insane clown posse of blood thirsty throwbacks to the 7th century, don’t expect me to – bifurcate the cult, that is. Unless and until I see “moderate” Muslims actively condemning those of their faith who still believe in, support, tolerate and participate in acts that are abhorrent by all modern civilization standards I will continue to condemn Islam as a radical political ideology.
If Muslims cannot stand up and specifically denounce those in their midst who still condone female genital mutilation, wife beatings, honor killings, stoning of adulterers, torture and death of homosexuals and the beheading of apostates and infidels, I cannot accept their dogma as a “religion.”
Adherents of this malevolent form of Islam, which advocates for sharia law and has called for a return of the caliphate are members of a political party not a religion. Let me repeat that; a movement that ideologically supports and acts to establish an Islamic theocracy is not a religion. It is a totalitarian political party seeking, like all totalitarian regimes, to exert complete power over its subjects. What else would you expect from a political party whose name, Islam, means “submit?”
How many Instagrams do these people need to send before we on the receiving end get it? They hate us; they hate liberty, they hate our way of life.
They’ve been sending these little messages for years. Here’s one from Turkey for example, another from Palestine, as well as from Iran, Egypt, Tunisia, and Syria. They wish to end our way of life. Get it?
WSN: What kind of Islamic ideology does Hizb ut-Tahrir promote?
IW: We view Islam as a comprehensive system of life that addresses both individual and societal problems. In Islam we have a judicial system, a social system, an economic system, an educational policy, a foreign policy, a punishment system and a ruling system. Therefore, unlike the Western model of secular liberalism - where religion and state are separated - Islam accepts no such dichotomy. We are an Islamic political party and not a sect or a school of thought.
And that’s just what they’re willing to say on the record.
If Islam is a religion it ought not be in the business of governing; and if it is a political party, it has no business being a religion.
I would think that the President of the United States would place the eradication of our sworn enemies higher on his to-do list. In the grand scheme of future generations it would seem that it would warrant more attention than such things as ensuring college coeds have federally funded birth control, gay NBA players are free to marry, or even implementing universal health care. I suppose the only priority that even come close might be passing an amnesty bill which will grant citizenship to millions of illegal citizens in order to ensure that the control of the country remains in the hands of progressive morons for another half a century.
