This is gorgeous. And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying this. A vicious uber-left thug who worked furiously to get me banned from the UK is getting a taste of his own poison. Britain’s National Union of Students (NUS) is attempting to ban or “no platform” Nick Lowles, a man who has built a career denouncing perceived “Islamophobia,” because they say he is “Islamophobic.”  Ha!

The bottom line here is anyone’s opposition to jihad or sharia is considered “islamophobic.” and no matter how much the trimmers trim, they, too, will be targeted, smeared and libeled.

Karma’s a bitch.

“Students Ban Hard-Left, ‘Anti-Islamophobia’ Campaigner… For Being ‘Islamophobic,’” By Liam Deacon, Breitbart, February 19, 2016:

Britain’s National Union of Students (NUS) is attempting to ban or “no platform” Nick Lowles, a man who has built a career denouncing perceived ‘Islamophobia’, because they say he is ‘Islamophobic’.

Mr. Lowles is the leader of the hard left, foreign-funded Hope Not Hate (HNH) campaign group which claims to “campaign to counter racism and fascism”.

But the very kind of mentality that Mr. Lowles has created on the left of British politics appears to have come back to haunt him – with hard-left students denouncing the group for briefly raising the issue of radical Islam.

“Ultra-left lunacy” wrote Mr. Lowles on Facebook today. “So it seems that the NUS black students are opposing a plan to invite me to speak on an anti-racism platform because I’m ‘islamophobic’.

“Never mind all the work HOPE not hate has done challenging anti-Muslim hatred, it seems that some ultra left activists believe I’m islamophobic because I have repeatedly spoken out against grooming and dared to condemn Islamist extremism”, he said.

Adding: “I will be writing about this in more detail in the near future but for now I’m biting my tongue and trying to remain polite and professional.”

Mr. Lowles began the Community Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE) campaign alongside the Islamic Society of Britain (ISB) in 2013, a year after the Rotherham grooming scandal began to be exposed. CAASE claims to, “meet head-on the communal challenges raised by child sexual exploitation of vulnerable young girls and women.”

Prior to this, HNH frequently accused those who spoke about grooming of ‘Islamophobia’. Tommy Robinson, the ex-leader of the English Defence League, has even alleged that Mr. Knowles later “apologised” for not taking the problem seriously enough.

The NUS attack on Mr. Knowles comes just days after they branded gay rights activist Peter Tatchell ‘racist’ and ‘transphobic’, and a couple of months after they attempted to ban the prominent Feminist Germaine Greer.

In 2014, the student organisation managed to vote decisively to “formally condemn” and oppose “racist” and “islamophobic” UKIP, but declined to condemn this Islamic State (IS) terror group because that too would be “islamopbobic”.

Despite this track record, many left wing politicians seemed surprised about the development.

“No platformed by NUS for supposed Islamophobia. Beyond absurd,” tweeted Labour London Assembly member Tom Copley. “Beyond baffling”, added Mike Katz, another Labour candidate for the London Assembly.

    Poetic justice. Isn’t karma a witch?

    Lowles just got his own personal NAKBA. The only thing better would be if he got thrown off a roof in Gaza by masked Hamassholes.

    I guess what I am about to say in this commentary would also get me accused of being Islamophobic, but I will write it nevertheless, as I believe that it needs to be said…Let me begin this commentary with a general
    apology to those who may take umbrage with its comments. I do not mean
    to belittle anyone’s consciousness, but I thought that what was needed
    to be said, just needed to be spoken thru the written word. We live in
    a world where some people believe that death is more precious than
    life, and they are willing to give up their life in the expectation
    that they will get special treatment in the very UNKNOWN hereafter, if
    it even exists (I sometimes wonder if a hereafter also exists for
    natures animals, insects, etc., but that is for another discussion).
    These people are adopting a belief in the so-called hereafter, which is
    a product/creation of men who claimed “divine” inspiration, while they
    ignore the reality that stares them continuously in the face: the
    wonder of LIFE and all that living means, good or bad. That is not to
    say that I oppose any religion, especially when such a religion teaches
    and promotes love of life and good spirit between all people, but when
    this kind of obscene thinking that death in conjunction with some act
    of terror, is glorified and becomes the rule rather than the exception,
    we all need to be very concerned. This culture, Islam, which seems so
    enamored with the UNKNOWN hereafter seemingly to the exclusion of
    actual LIFE itself, should boggle any reasonable person’s mind. While I
    sometimes think that such belief may very well be related to lack of
    opportunity and desperate economic conditions, those factors can never
    be used to justify heinous conduct. Is there any other culture that in
    this world’s history has ever promoted such nonsense? Yet, our world
    leaders refuse to recognize that Islam is a culture that promotes and
    teaches such nonsense, and that its underlying belief system totally disables
    many of its followers from ever becoming good citizens within those
    countries that relish and promote the good life, not martyrdom in
    conjunction with obscene racism, bigotry, hate, murder and mayhem. That
    they refer to their belief system, and in particular any justification
    for Death over Life, as a religion, should be to reasonable people, so
    downright ludicrous, as to be laughable; if it was not so dangerous to
    all of us who love life and understand the propriety of living with all
    others in a good neighborly environment. Only when the Islamic world
    finally recognizes that its writings, teachings and interpretations in
    its so called religious books are essentially mind boggling wrong, and
    they actively reform their belief system, will this culture be able to
    join the world of us non-Muslims. It is that simple to me, and I hope
    that with all of the travails that we are seeing today we will wake up
    to this truthful and scary phenomenon.

    We MUST convince the world of Islam to radically
    reform, as I believe that there has to be many in the Islamic world who
    actually recognize that this particular belief system that promotes
    such thinking that Death prevails over Life is seriously tainted, and
    given the opportunity, would seek appropriate reformation of the inane
    portions of its belief system. Hoping that there exists many reasonable
    thinking people within the world of Islam who can and will actively
    recognize and affirmatively attempt to make significant changes to
    their belief system that now seemingly promotes domination thru Jihad,
    Death over Life, and acceptance of a legal system that is antiquated to
    a fault (Shari a), I am not now in favor of overwhelming military
    action against all of these people, because that would create exactly
    what Hitler and his lunatic followers intended when they violently
    tried to destroy one supposedly non-Aryan culture after the other. I certainly believe that we must destroy the present fundamentalist believers who accept and act out the obscene philosophy of Islam which preaches domination and the promotion
    of its dangerous Shari a belief system, but wholesale slaughter
    is also inappropriate. Unless we figure out how to make them REFORM
    their belief system, if that is even possible, I am afraid a bloodbath
    is down the road, a happenstance I, and I assume all reasonable people
    would prefer to avoid, IF POSSIBLE!

      Oh, sorry you are having trouble facing reality. The war has begun and it will be to the death. The time for choosing sides is long gone. Even the so-called “moderates” provide cover for the “extremists”. Their women are brood mares producing nasty little killers who start chopping off heads before puberty. Their young men start raping while still minors and receive a slap on the wrist, if any punishment at all. Women have little or no value, even to the “moderates”.
      I choose freedom, women’s rights, gay rights, capitalism, free speech, and equality – Western values. Remember, Islam is a seditious socio-political system masquerading as a religion. It is a belief system they choose and subscribe to and it is not our responsibility to reform it, only to protect our own society from it. Whatever it takes.

      • Dennis

        Simply stated, what I am saying is that the only reasonable approach to Islam’s inane thinking and conduct is to help those common and peace believing people within the Islamic world come out and actively communicate and change/reform the thoughts outlined above in my commentary. To me that is the direction that seems to be available to us now, before the conflict becomes “bloodshed.” The world’s approach needs to affirmatively terminate all the so-called political correctness, and say it the way it is: ISLAM MUST ADOPT CONCEPTS THAT ARE CONSISTANT WITH GOOD NEIGHBORLINESS. The world not only must say it over and over again while creating whatever reasonable sanctions are available and intended to affect favorably a response from the world of Islam, until they are able to get the people of Islam to do the right thing. If we don’t accomplish that and they don’t accept that, we face a bloodbath of monumental proportions

        • Pray Hard

          The conflict is already bloodshed.
          And maybe you can train rattlesnakes to jump through firey hoops at the circus.

    • apichorus

      sadly, excellent comment, very sadly. but exactly on the mark, hashem yishmor aleinu.

    • Pray Hard

      Islam will never reform. It would no longer be Islam if it did.
      There is no such thing as Islamophobia.
      Maybe you should try to catch up instead of writing little dissertations.

  • Fed Up UK

    Oh dear, how sad, what a shame. Suck it up, Mr Lowles. Now you know what it feels like to be on the receiving end.

    We should send him a message of support from Atlas Shrugs, he would become so twisted inside as he tries to process that thought that he would probably have a headache for days.

  • Areyoukiddingme

    Nom nom nom….that’s the sound of the left eating the left…I love it!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    isis murders muslims, the left refuses to condemn them because that would be “islamophobic” the left are without a doubt stupiding themselves into their own derrieres. Looks good on them, proceed, more in public if possible

    • Don Grantham

      Ass helmets for liberals. Should be required for safety reasons.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Looks like a couple of democrat candidates.

        • Don Grantham

          That’s the inherent genius of ass helmets…

          • Mahou Shoujo

            A person could go all over the democratic states and though to be a congressman.

          • Don Grantham

            They usually find those ass helmets too uncomfortable to sit in.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Strange, they should fit, they shove everything else in.

    They will continue to be “baffled” as their heads fall from their necks.

          Yes, that’s the fellow. I anglicised his name a bit. Interesting as an aside to note how many quotes of Enlightenment period Frenchmen befit these times.

  • Dave Mc

    He should now expect a fatwah.

  • madmotorman

    Could this be his attitude!

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Harrumph, I resemble that remark.

  • joker

    Dell Boy would say what a plonker. The left political nutters came apparently also with transphobic. Are we in a luntic asylum full with muzzrats and left lunatics?

    • Pray Hard

      Yes.

    There is a German word that sums of my enjoyment of this post: SCHADENFREUDE

  • Pray Hard

    The regressive left would be comical if it wasn’t so dangerous. However, I do like to watch it cannibalize itself.

  • Person223

    There could be a lesson in this for Lowles about the nature of these people, but somehow I don’t think he’ll learn it.

  • Merchantseamen

    You almost need a flow chart to keep everything straight.

  • Mindy Robinson

    Maybe they should consider taking those involved in nus far, far out into the ocean and tossing them overboard.

    Nice!!
