Today, in Australia, the Blue Mountains to be precise (which lies about 70km to the west of Sydney), I learned that Anzac Marches have been cancelled. Four separate marches. Initially when I read the heading: No Anzac March, I thought it might have been due to the dwindling numbers of Anzacs in that area, but upon actually opening the article, I was  horrified to learn that the reason ANZAC marches have been cancelled in the Blue Mountains is because we can’t afford the money to fund the necessary anti-terrorism security required for the event, more specifically the additional cost of anti-terrorism measures imposed by local police, which include the use of water-filled barriers to close roads (a measure initiated in the wake of the Nice attack last July).

Council, which is believed to have spent $70,000 over the past two years to ensure the marches went ahead, is unable to continue the financial assistance.

Geert Wilders has lost his personal freedom but defends his right to freedom of speech

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.

Why one woman voted for Trump instead of Hillary

Hillary and her supporters assumed that the women’s vote belonged to her because she had a vagina which is a very sexist assumption. They assumed that American women would want the glass ceiling broken so badly that they would vote for a woman no matter what the content of her character was.They assumed that all women were pro-abortion and that they didn’t care about things like national security or national debt .They thought that American women would believe that the only way to protect the LGBT community and to take care of the black community and minorities was to vote democrat.

…I’m sick and tired of it. I’m sick and tired of these uninformed jackholes telling me that I’m racist, sexist, Islamophobic and homophobic. They have no basis for those claims. They’re consumed by their emotions.  Do they honestly believe Hillary Clinton lost solely because she’s a woman? It couldn’t possibly have anything with her being a pathological liar who’s spent her entire life pursuing political power? It had nothing to do with the fact that America’s not satisfied with her vision for America– an America with open borders, higher taxes and more bureaucratic scumbags in D.C. telling us how to run our lives?

We’re not racist. We’re not sexist. We want people to come into this country legally. That’s not racist. Progressive leadership in the big, urban cities hasn’t pulled the black community out of poverty. It’s worsened it. Liberalism has failed them. We acknowledge that. We want them to prosper. That’s not racist. And as for being sexist? All issues are women’s issues. I have no idea why liberals continue to separate them. Do they really believe we only care about vaginas, boobs and killing our offspring? Liberals assumed we (women) would vote for Hillary based on those reasons alone. THAT’S sexist, if you ask me. Women care about the economy. We care about national security. We care about the almost $20 trillion national debt. We care about the erosion of our freedoms. We care about the future of the Supreme Court. The list goes on and on and on.

The enemy of Islam is Information

Another perspective of France’s intentions regarding the Burqa and the Burkini

The below article is another perspective of France’s intentions regarding the Burqa and the Burkini. It is not arguing right or wrong but attempts to explain the French perspective. Only you the reader can decide whether the French perspective is moral or not.


This goes back to the philosophical issue of the tolerance of intolerance, or more broadly of whether objective moral truths exist or not. Western democracies, such as France, have self-determined that there are objective moral truths in the universe, of which include concepts of non-intervention (on the person, and when possible); of personal freedom; and of religious freedom.

The problem, however, is that western democratic philosophies don’t have room in them for unlimited freedom or tolerance. Some things may not be tolerated. This is lost on many observers of western democratic philosophy, especially the uninformed who see the Bill of Rights and incorrectly assume that the protections and tolerances they afford are unlimited (which is not the case; there are many exceptions in place, both legally and ethically, concerning the rights laid out in that particular document). As an example relating specifically to religious tolerance, even a “deeply held” religious belief in the spiritual power of snake handling is not protected in the States because of the great risk untrained professionals have, both towards themselves and others, of injury when handling snakes.

CAIR attempts to “Mansplain” Muslim modesty

index

 

CAIR are an extremely well funded organisation that wages legal Jihad to impose Sharia law and values on Western countries. After every Islamic terrorist attack you can count on one of their representatives to be front and centre, expressing concern that the massacre of infidels may lead to the average Muslim on the street being subjected to mean stares.

After we published the above photo on Whaleoil I went looking for photos of modest Muslim men with the intention of  pixelating  parts of their body that would have to be covered if they were Muslim women in Iran.  Instead I found this article by CAIR  entitled, UNDERSTANDING MODESTY – A LOOK AT MUSLIM MEN. In it the writer does his best to mansplain a mentality that subjugates women and is insulting to men, viewing them as primitive animals with no self control.

Turkish women have much more to lose if secularism is destroyed and a religious order is introduced

Turkey Istanbul – young women on the fun fair in Eguep photographer: Claudia Wiens

“Turkey’s government is in danger of losing the secularism that sets it apart from other Muslim countries.Over the years statements have been made about women that undermine its moderate appearance to the rest of the world. Turkey is a country where Muslim women have more freedom than Muslim women in other Muslim countries but that freedom is under threat. 

Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, forever touted as a real “moderate” in the Muslim world, has a few choice words for women who choose career over motherhood: you’re deficient half-persons.

“A woman who abstains from maternity by saying ‘I am working’ means that she is actually denying her femininity,” Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul on Sunday. He went on to clarify that such women are “deficient” and “half-persons.” NBC reports

French ransack mosque – destroy Korans

It was inevitable.

A crowd vandalised a Muslim prayer hall and set fire to copies of the Quran on the French island of Corsica, police said, in an attack condemned by the government.

The violence came on Friday amid heightened security measures for the Christmas holiday, and nationwide fears after the November 13 attacks in Paris killed 130 people.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls wrote on Twitter that the break-in in the city of Ajaccio was “an unacceptable desecration”.

Q&A: Muslim minorities are first victims of terror

Tensions had mounted in Ajaccio Friday after two firefighters and a police officer were injured overnight in a low-income neighbourhood of the city when they were “ambushed” by “several hooded youths”, authorities said.

On Friday afternoon around 150 people had gathered in front of the prefecture in a show of support for the police and firefighters, officials said in a statement.

But some in that crowd broke away and headed for the low-income housing estate where the violence took place the night before.

They shouted slogans in Corsican meaning “Arabs get out!” and “This is our home!”, an AFP correspondent reported.

Nearby, a small group smashed the glass door to the mosque, ransacked the prayer hall and partially burned books including copies of the Quran

These are the first signs of civil unrest and although they are highly counter productive, and make those responsible no better than the people they wish to leave their country, it is a sign of frustration that politicians are not doing their jobs, police aren’t doing their jobs and civil leaders are not doing their jobs.

When people native to a country feel unsafe, and when the government continues to let in more migrants that add to this feeling of fear and instability, then these are the first signs of the more radical right taking matters into their own hands.

There are warning signs for politicians and civil leaders to stop being concerned with not offending anyone or upsetting anyone and return to the basic duties for which they are paid:  to protect the citizens against any threat, foreign or domestic.

Publisher hacked to death due to “hate speech”

So.  Let’s say someone doesn’t like the way your doctrine thinks and acts about things and writes about it.  How should you react?

You could start a petition to get the Human Rights Commission to prosecute.   Or start a huge Twitter-based drive to boycott everyone associated with that person.

What else could happen?

A publisher of a slain online critic of religious militancy has been hacked to death in the Bangladesh capital, police said, hours after similar attacks on two secular writers and another publisher in the majority-Muslim country.

Faysal Arefin published books by Avijit Roy, a US citizen of Bangladeshi origin who was killed by Islamists militants in the same way in February.

Arefin was hacked to death with sharp weapons in his office on the second floor of a crowded market in the capital, police said.

Militants have targeted secularist writers in Bangladesh in recent years, as the government has cracked down on Islamist groups seeking to turn the South Asian nation of 160 million people into a sharia-based state.

Four secular bloggers have been hacked to death this year for writing critically about Islamist militancy.

You would like to think that my critics can see the difference here.   At least they still employ the tools of a democracy, such as petitions, protests, boycotts and legal channels. Read more »
