Via Islamophobes and haters Kathy Shaidle & Robert Spencer comes a fresh bit of chill-speeching– for telling the truth about Islam.
“Ottawa radio host chastized for making ‘abusive and discriminatory,’ but true, statements about Islam and Muslims”
His crime? Green asked, “Is there something inherent in the Muslim faith that promotes violence and oppression of women?”[see footnote below]. Why not ask Aqsa Parvez.. oh, wait.
Hence, Free Speech Death Watch Update: “Ottawa radio station chastised for comments on Muslims”.. so sez our very own Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (here’s the Decision, and the Press Release). Hurray for us.
Our Canadian DeHumanizing UnRights DeCommissions have already made it a general principle for their inquisitions that the truth is no defence: if you even upset someone with the truth, you are guilty of a rights-crime. Modern ‘rights’ include the right to a fwee comfy bwankie from MummyGov.ca, and to never have your sensitive feelings hurt, even by the truth.
Danged Pesky Infidels
When it comes to militant Islam, this is all code-talk for blasphemy, since no criticism of Islam or Muhammed is allowable. Internationally, the OIC is pushing the UN to enact international speech codes forbidding any and all such blasphemy. All religions are equal in our multiculti paradise: especially Islam.
Then, the speech codes gain further force, and even Muslims who are critical of their own faith (or militant exponents & interpreters of it, a la The Muslim Brotherhood) will be found offensive, Islamophobic, discriminatory, and abusive.
The result? The Malignant Muslim Brotherhood Über Alles. Political and social de-free-speeching. Sensitivity training. Self-censoring. A little further along the way to Jihadist Islam Über Alles.
Mutually Useful Idiocies
Secular Progressive Utopians on the one hand and Militant IslamoFascists on the other both have their reasons for wanting to cripple the freedoms of Western Civilization. Seems they are finding each other useful in the pursuit of this goal; the one, for cracking down on dissidents, the other, for intimidating infidels. The enemy of my enemy is my current ally, until the final fight to the death.
What To Do?
(1) Drop a note of thanks and support to Robert Spencer for standing tall– again– for The West, Freedom, and those under threat from Islamism.
(3) Read the Decision. Next, contact the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council know they don’t speak for you, or for authentic Canadian freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and that you support Lowell Green versus those who would punish or silence him for simply asking questions of a religion. Canada is not an Islamic theocracy.
Canada & her freedoms: ours to lose.
UPDATE– Support Lowell Green: Ottawa Radio Station Host at CFRA “Chastised” for “Tone” of Response To Islamofascists – Oh Good Grief! ~
Green asked, “Is there something inherent in the Muslim faith that promotes violence and oppression of women?” Via Spencer:
“….The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223).
The Qur’an also declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” (2:282).
It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” (4:3).
It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” (4:11).
Worst of all, the Qur’an tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34).
It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” (65:4).
Nor is that all. There are ahadith in which Muhammad says that hell is filled with many more women than men, there are Islamic legal justifications for child marriage, stoning for adultery, honor killing, and female genital mutilation, and there is abundant evidence that these views of women have created hardened cultural attitudes across the Islamic world that institutionalize misery for women and discrimination against them….”
