Freedom of Speech

Ignorance of and leniency towards Salafi ideology are two major problems in Western nations

I contacted Nicolas Pirsoul who is a doctoral candidate in politics and international relations at the University of Auckland recently because his research interests include issues around democracy and Middle Eastern politics. I told him about the story we had broken about Salafist Dr Sahib and asked him if he would consider writing an article for Whaleoil in reaction to the story since it had been picked up by the mainstream media both in New Zealand and in Britain. He politely declined because he said he was currently working on several articles and opinion pieces already.It appears that one of the pieces he was working on was for the New Zealand Herald.

Isis, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and other terrorist organisations are all inspired by a particular understanding of Islam: Salafism.

Salafism is an extremist, literalist, and intolerant form of Sunni Islam…

Salafism obtained the important political power it continues to hold today when Muhammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab formed an alliance with the al-Saud family during the 18th century to give birth to the Saudi version of Salafism, Wahhabism, the state religion of the current kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia developed as a major political force, due in large part to its oil production and its status as one of the West’s principal allies in the Middle East, Salafism further expanded its political and geographical influence. Saudi Arabia has continued to use its wealth to propagate Wahhabi ideas thorough the Islamic world and Muslim communities in the West.

Given these facts isn’t it strange that all those Sunni Imams from Egypt were sent to New Zealand this year to combat extremism? You know, the extremism that we don’t currently have in New Zealand according to FIANZ. Who exactly were these Imams targeting? Were they concerned about Salafists like Dr Sahib from Saudi Arabia who are propagating Wahhabi ideas?

Netherlands’ politician Geert Wilders has already lost his personal freedom and lives his life under armed guard due to the serious death threats made against him by Islamic terrorists Now he is facing not only a fine but the real prospect of being put in prison for his views on immigration. His words were nothing out of the ordinary for a party that has gained huge popularity for its anti-immigration stance. What he is on trial for will shock you. I don’t think his words are why he is on trial. It is the threat his political party poses to the ruling elite that is really behind this sham of a court case.Geert Wilders’ final speech to the court is abridged below.

Mr. President, Members of the Court,
When I decided to address you here today, by making a final statement in this trial against freedom of speech, many people reacted by telling me it is useless. That you, the court, have already written the sentencing verdict a while ago. That everything indicates that you have already convicted me. And perhaps that is true. Nevertheless, here I am. Because I never give up. And I have a message for you and the Netherlands.

witchcraft at Salem village

A Liberal studies professor at New York University who had been on an anonymous crusade against political correctness and generation snowflake was forced to leave his job after a student newspaper revealed his identity.Like an apostate who has left Islam he has been hounded by the ” true believers ” who consider his different opinion to be both blasphemous and treasonous.

…Liberal studies prof Michael Rectenwald, 57, said he was forced Wednesday to go on paid leave for the rest of the semester.

“They are actually pushing me out the door for having a different perspective,”

…Rectenwald launched an undercover Twitter account called Deplorable NYU Prof on Sept. 12 to argue against campus trends like “safe spaces,” “trigger warnings” and other aspects of academia’s growing PC culture.

Generation Snowflake thinks free speech is a weapon used against them

The liberal panty-waists of Generation Snowflake are now arguing that simply advocating for free speech is “a cudgel against them“.

They sound remarkably like a few health troughers I am acquainted with.

The conventional wisdom surrounding American college life these days views campuses as hotbeds of intolerance for free speech, with students themselves leading the charge.

But a new report by PEN America, to be released on Monday, questions that story line while warning of a different danger: a growing perception among young people that cries of “free speech” are too often used as a cudgel against them.

Poor little petals. Can’t cope with free speech.

The report, titled “And Campus for All: Diversity, Inclusion and Freedom of Speech at U.S. Universities,” covers a broad range of hot-button topics, including trigger warnings, microaggressions, safe spaces and controversial campus speakers. While it cites “troubling incidents of speech curtailed,” it finds no “pervasive” crisis.

But it does worry about an “apparent chasm” between free speech advocates and student activists, thanks in part to a conversation that sometimes dismisses students’ demands for equity and inclusion instead of parsing how they do, or don’t, infringe on the “bedrock principles” of free speech.

“A rising generation may be turning against free speech,” the report warns. “Before these developments deepen and harden, PEN America hopes to open up a wider, more searching dialogue that can help all sides to these debates better identify common ground.”   Read more »

Pro-Immigrant Party in Holland wants ” Racism Police “

If the Muslim Pro-Immigrant Party have their way, ‘ undesirable ‘ speech will be criminalised in Holland. The party wants to create ‘ Racism Police ‘ to crack down on critics of Islam that they call Islamophobes. This kind of attack against freedom of speech is not just happening in Holland. It is happening where ever a mutant ideology is created. This mutant ideology is the spawn of two extreme parents. The mother is  Leftist Social Justice outrage, the father is Political Islam. United in their hatred for Jews and their desire to create a new world order they are a powerful force for change.

Legal Insurrection is reporting that the Netherlands’ pro-immigration Denk Party is pushing for a thousand-strong “Racism Police” to go after thought and speech crimes.

The party, dominated by members of Turkish and Muslim origin — quelle surprise — was founded in 2014 by two former-socialist Turkish politicians but it already sits in the Dutch parliament and is hoping to mobilize the country’s million-strong immigrant population (out of about 17 million overall) and growing Muslim population, currently at about 7 percent, in the parliamentary elections to be held early next year.

Where is the concept of forgiveness in Islam?

A Jordanian writer has been shot dead outside court where he was due to face charges for sharing a caricature on social media that was seen as insulting Islam.

The gunman was arrested at the scene, state news agency Petra said. A security source said he was a 39-year-old Muslim preacher in a mosque in the capital.

Writer Nahed Hattar, a Christian and an anti-Islamist activist was arrested last month after he shared a caricature that depicted a bearded man in heaven smoking in bed with women and asking God to bring him wine and cashews.

In the cartoon, the man also asks God to clear his dishes and put a door on his tent and knock before entering. Read more »

EXCLUSIVE: David Seymour’s thoughts on Islamic Immigration

David+Seymour+ACT+Party+Conference+H-Fu08aFAynl

 

With overseas terror attacks and mass migration of un-vetted refugees into Europe, many people are concerned about the connection between Islam and terrorism, along with the social unrest that can accompany large-scale migration.  While New Zealand has been relatively insulated it would be incredibly naive to think we are immune to the challenges faced by Europe and the US.

Too often, the left labels those raising concerns as racists or bigots – a cynical attempt to shut down debate through name calling. Debating the ideas and beliefs of any religion shouldn’t be forbidden and the practical difficulties of integration, especially where there is a clash of values, should be openly discussed.

Facebook censors Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba

Facebook and twitter have censored and banned conservative voices many times but they usually at least pretend that they are doing it for some other reason. Twitter said Breitbart’s journalist Milo’s critical article of the Ghostbusters movie caused hundreds of nasty troll messages, hence his complete ban. In this case, Facebook didn’t even bother to give a fake reason for their censorship of Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of the free speech platform Gab.

Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba was temporarily banned from Facebook last night after sharing a link to Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ Dangerous Faggot tour trailer just hours before his event at Texas Tech university.
Torba documented the temporary suspension from Facebook on Twitter and Gab, relaying his confusion as to the reason of his ban and the removal of the post, which purely consisted of a link to the video and the comment, “Wew lads… Coming to college campuses everywhere. Release the frogs.”
