Just as our elected officials create convenient areas of privilege which absolve them from obeying laws which are so enthusiastically applied to the rest of us, so Muslims are seeking to become a privileged class with the exclusive right to decide what offends their religious sensibilities and what level of punishment must be meted out for the particular affront.
Since 1999, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has demanded all nations adopt laws concerning “defamation of religion” which would subject offenders to appropriate criminal punishment for blasphemy worldwide. At the heart of this movement is the contention that “…the international community should ‘come out of hiding from behind the excuse of freedom of expression.’”
It seems all of this United States-inspired, freedom-motivated nonsense about protecting First Amendment rights gets in the way of what is really important, that being the ability of followers of Islam to impose Sharia restrictions on a foolishly audacious American people, all for their own good, of course. As U.N. chief Ban Ki Moon explains, “some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs….” And after all, “…while [freedom of expression] is a fundamental right and privilege, it should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act.”
Of course the only really shameful act is that of Ban Ki Moon himself, placing on perpetual display his willingness to side with the most corrupt and treacherous pretenders to pious reverence and devotion to God’s will in human history.
On Wednesday, the morally despicable Moon accused the maker of “Innocence of Muslims” of having “abused his right to freedom of expression by making the movie.” “Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected when they are used for common justice, common purpose…” Moon continued.
Such statements reveal an arrogance and conceit matched only by that of the would-be Islamofascist dictators to whom Moon is so willing to sacrifice the rights of the earth’s non-Muslim population.
Funny how the most dependable abusers of human rights invariably seek assistance for their treacherous schemes from the most dependably liberal establishments. From the United Nations to the Obama Regime, neither group can provide assistance fast enough to concoct some form of ginned-up blasphemy into a punishable, global Islamic affront.
And it’s perhaps doubly strange that some of the best advice for countering this Muslim scourge should come from liberal atheist Sam Harris who writes, “…the only forces on earth that can recover [freedom] are strong, secular governments that will face down charges of blasphemy with scorn. No apologies necessary. Muslims must learn that if they make belligerent and fanatical claims upon the tolerance of free societies, they will meet the limits of that tolerance.”
Though an obvious slap against the bringing to bear of any sort of religious fervor against Islamic radicals, Harris is certainly making it clear that the world must stand against this scourge or eventually fall to it.
We know the establishment left will gladly betray the American people to the forces of Islam. If Republican Party leaders continue to reveal the same stripe, ours may very soon become a nation of militias once more.
