Faith Goldy of Rebel Media had me on her show to talk about the UN chief saying that “Islamophobia” is fueling terrorism and the Canadian parliament criminalizing ‘Islamophobia.”
The Quebec shooting, which has been ascribed to “white supremacism” and “Islamophobia,” even though the circumstances are still unclear and the motive still unknown, is behind this rush to shariatize speech. Why isn’t there the same rush after every jihad slaughter — to criminalize jihad and incitement to jihad, exhortations hatred of and violence against the infidel, as well as Islamic misogyny, Jew-hatred, etc.?
The OIC-driven UN has been working to impose sharia restrictions for the last two deacdes. It fits into the UN’s ongoing efforts to compel states that protect the freedom of speech to adopt “hate speech” provisions that would effectively involve their adopting Sharia blasphemy provisions.
The idea is that anyone (especially President Trump) who says there is the slightest problem with Islam (or “radical Islam”) is only aiding Islamic State propaganda that the West is waging war upon Islam. This is predicated on the further assumption that Islam is a religion of peace, and that the motivation for jihad terrorism couldn’t possibly come from within it. So jihadis only become terrorists when we say bad things about their religion, so if we just stop doing that, all will be well.
The only problem with this scenario is that the Qur’an’s exhortations to the conquest and subjugation of unbelievers are not predicated on what those unbelievers say or don’t say. The jihad will continue, and if we shut up about it, many people will remain ignorant and complacent about it as it advances.
