The many activist groups shouting ‘tolerance’ have proven over and over again to be amongst the least tolerant outfits on the planet. They demand that everyone tolerate what they are up to, and if anyone dares to disagree, they become exceedingly intolerant and hateful.
And coupled with the tolerance brigade is the never-ending offence industry. Offence is now taken at anything and everything. Not only are we told how bad it is to hurt someone’s feelings, but laws are being enacted to ensure that we don’t offend anyone.
It should be clear from the hundreds of examples already featured on this website that the two biggest perpetrators of all this mischief and mayhem are the militant homosexual lobby and the militant Islamic lobby. Both groups are working overtime to see the West fully submit to their agendas – or else.
The examples of this come on a daily basis. So let me offer several more from each group – five recent examples of just how intolerant the tolerance brigade is, and how sweeping the offence industry has become. The first has to do with a homosexual activist who nicely spilled the beans as to how he understands tolerance.
Speaking of those who oppose homosexual marriage, activist Scott Rose cheerily said this: “These Christofascists deserve to be nailed up on crosses and left to bleed to death. Society is NOT a heterosupremacist-theocRAT-only country club.”
OK, so let’s just crucify Christians – all in the name of tolerance and love of course. Such an accepting bunch these guys are. You gotta love how much they are into diversity – tolerating one and all, far and wide. And consider how one Hollywood celeb can see where all this tolerance is taking us.
Actor Jeremy Irons has asked whether we must now tolerate even incest, if we allow homosexual marriage to go ahead: “Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons said Wednesday that while he doesn’t have much of a strong opinion either way on same-sex marriage, he believes it poses interesting questions, including whether allowing same-sex marriage would open the door for interfamilial relationships. ‘Could a father not marry his son?’ Irons asked HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps.
“Irons argued that ‘it’s not incest between men’ because ‘incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don’t breed,’ and wondered whether same-sex marriage might allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed. ‘It seems to me that now they’re fighting for the name,’ Irons said of advocates for same-sex marriage as opposed to civil unions. ‘I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that’.”
He is asking the right questions, but already many people are calling for the complete acceptance of incest, all in the name of tolerance. But as I have mentioned, the offence industry is also being fully buttressed by Islam, and the threat of creeping sharia.
All over the West demands are being made that we tolerate all things Islamic, and cause them no offence. But this is all one way traffic. It is all about the West slowly and incrementally giving up its freedoms and rights, just to appease the small minority of Muslims living amongst them.
Here are three recent examples of this. The Danish toy giant Lego has just caved in to the demands of the stealth jihadists. As one report says, “Turkish Muslims have declared victory after toy makers Lego agreed to withdraw a Star Wars product which allegedly depicted a mosque.
“Critics claimed that the Jabba’s Palace model, part of Lego’s Star Wars range, was offensive to Muslims as it resembled the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul – one of the world’s most renowned mosques. The Lego set is based on the home of Jabba the Hutt, a central character in the Star Wars series, who lives in a domed palace, with a separated watchtower.
“As well as bearing a likeness to the Hagia Sophia mosque, the Turkish group also claimed the toy was designed based on the Jami al-Kabir mosque in Beirut with the watchtower resembling a minaret. The set of blocks featured Jabba the Hutt, a slug-like shisha-smoking alien from the Star Wars films, and an oriental domed building housing rockets and machine guns….
“A statement posted on the organisation’s website referred to Jabba the Hutt as a ‘terrorist’ and said that he ‘likes to smoke hookah and have his victims killed’. It added: ‘It is clear that the ugly figure of Jabba and the whole scene smacks of racial prejudice and vulgar insinuations against Asians and Orientals as people with deceitful and criminal personalities.’
“The statement said that the figures in the set are made to resemble ‘terrorists, criminals and murderers’. The case came to light when a Turkish man expressed his dissatisfaction with the toy after it was purchased for his son by a family member.”
At first Lego said it was just a Star Wars toy, but then crumbled under the intimidation: “Following a meeting between Turkish community leaders and Lego executives it was agreed that production of the toy would end from 2014 onwards.”
In a similar act of cowardice and political correctness, Qantas will be easing up on the ham sandwiches. More specifically, it will leave pork and alcohol off its menu altogether, at least on its Middle Eastern flights. Consider this headline: “Qantas bans ham on flights in and out of Dubai after Emirates deal”.
The story continues, “Don’t expect a ham omelette on your next Qantas flight to Europe – Australia’s national carrier has removed pork from its menu on the route since tying up with Middle Eastern airline Emirates. Consumption of pork and pork products is strictly forbidden in Islam as it is considered unholy.
“A note on the Qantas menus on flights in and out of Dubai states that meals do not contain pork products or alcohol, which is also forbidden in Islam. It has also introduced a Mezze plate offering traditional Middle Eastern fare in its upper classes and has Arabic translations after in-flight announcements.”
Now if these two examples seem a bit too trivial, let me conclude with a much more serious case. This is a shocking example of creeping sharia and Western dhimmitude. The story opens this way: “A Muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.
“Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law. Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’
“Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence. But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.”
If the other two examples of creeping sharia have not shocked you, this one certainly should. The judge is just another dhimmi, fully in subjection to the Islamic way of thinking. He is either too foolish or too afraid to dare to offend Islam, so he allows this heinous crime to go basically unpunished.
Yep, the offence industry and the tolerance brigade are alive and well in the West. If it keeps going in this direction, there will soon be no West left. The choice is ours. Will we stand and fight, or will we capitulate? We had better decide real soon.
