Former United States Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently declared that Islamic refugees from Somalia have transformed Minnesota from a cozy, quiet state to one plagued with terrorist attacks, Shariah law and female genital mutilation, as Democratic politicians have targeted the Gopher State with massive Third World immigration.
You cannot block mosque construction, the incubators, the hatcheries of Muslim terrorists, but you can block a synagogue because it will be a target of Muslim terrorism? The Aussies should block Muslim immigration, not synagogues. In the era of the savage, terrorism wins. This is Australia, not Yemen.
“On the left, people were saying that if you have any criticism against Islam, then you were a bigot against all Muslims. On the right, it was like, there are a lot of problematic things in Islamic scripture, so everyone who is Muslim must be banned, or profiled, or demonized. Both sides weren’t making that distinction between challenging ideas, which has historically moved societies forward, and demonizing human beings, which only rips societies apart.”
This isn’t accurate, but it’s a good summation of why even Leftists who are opposed to jihad terror will not discuss, will not debate, will not engage in any way with those who are perceived as “right-wing.”
Intellectual elites argue that different cultures and their values are morally equivalent. That’s ludicrous. Western culture and values are superior to all others. I have a few questions for those who’d claim that such a statement is untrue or smacks of racism and Eurocentrism. Is forcible female genital mutilation, as practiced in nearly 30 sub-Saharan African and Middle Eastern countries, a morally equivalent cultural value? Slavery is practiced in Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan; is it morally equivalent? In most of the Middle East, there are numerous limitations placed on women, such as prohibitions on driving, employment and education. Under Islamic law, in some countries, female adulterers face death by stoning. Thieves face the punishment of having their hands severed. Homosexuality is a crime punishable by death in some countries. Are these cultural values morally equivalent, superior or inferior to Western values?

What got Trudeau’s Y-fronts in a twist was Conservative MP Peter Kent writing an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal outlining the stink over what I have called the Liberals’ decision to “punt on first down,” and give Khadr $10.5 million in settlement money rather than fight his lawsuit in court and letting the chips fall where they may. “When I deal with the United States, I leave the domestic squabbles at home,” Trudeau said. “Other parties don’t seem to have that rule, but I think it’s one that Canadians appreciate.”
