One of the biggest problems with public discourse in the West today is that the articulation of speech that deviates from the Leftist norms of political correctness is met with systematic abuse – “racism”, “bigotry”, “fascism”, “prejudice”, “misogyny” “alt-right” or “right-wing” or – heaven forfend! – even “Islamophobia”.
Part of the problem is that we have by and large lost the educational techniques of debating difficult subjects in public – the process of free, uncensored debate is no longer encouraged in our schools and universities, and most people find that by the time they have developed an interest in, say, politics, philosophy and economics for example, and wish to take up a position that would have been considered “moderate” only fifty years ago, they are smeared with one or more of the epithets listed above and threatened with social ostracism, the loss of their employment, or even the loss of their liberty under increasingly arbitrary “hate speech” laws. This naturally discourages reasoned debate and critical analysis, an outcome which is to the detriment of us all, especially given the immense challenges facing our democratic Western civilisation today.
A remarkable interview between Professor Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman of Channel 4 Television took place recently. It was viewed over two million times on YouTube and the general consensus was that the social justice warrior Cathy Newman had her ass handed to her by the learned Professor Peterson. (She was reportedly rather upset by this.) The most delicious “gotcha” moment is at 23m 05s, however an in-depth analysis of the implications of the interview reveals an unexpected dimension.
This video of Paul Weston on Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch website explains it very well. It is well worth 45 minutes of your time to watch both the video and the original interview, and for you then to encourage everyone you know who cares about free speech to watch the video and the interview too.
Time and again we hear how Muslims are attacked and assaulted by vicious, racist, bigoted Islamophobes in Western countries – the message goes out that Muslims are victims, to be protected and appeased at any cost. An entire grievance-mongering victim industry has grown up in Western countries, run by greedy and rapacious weasels – and generously funded by naive Western governments who are only too happy to indulge the mendacious taqiyya-artists as they promote the false narrative of Muslim victim-hood.
Of course, I have to declare an interest here through my dealings with Britain’s least favourite bunch of mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artists over the past few years – the bottom-feeding denizens of Tell Mama UK in general and weasel-in-chief Fiyaz Mughal in particular.
For those of you unfamiliar with the swamp of fraudulent, unprincipled rodents that is Tell Mama UK, I refer you to the excellent Fahrenheit 211 website here and the coverage of my 2017 political show trial here.
It is now becoming apparent to many people that the regrettable tendency of Muslims to play the victim at every opportunity, and the even more regrettable tendency of professional grievance-mongers like Tell Mama UK to perpetuate the myth of Muslim victim-hood, is a despicable charade at best, designed to play on our good nature as non-Muslims, to exploit our tolerance and goodwill in order to advance the cause of Islam in the West, and to guilt-trip us into giving the ideology of Islam a free pass and a completely undeserved and privileged status.
The latest egregious example comes from Canada, where an 11 year-old Muslim girl claimed that she was assaulted by a man who cut her hijab with a pair of scissors. The event was apparently witnessed by the girl’s mother.
The only problem is that the story was completely false. It was – shock, horror – a complete fabrication. The girl – and her mother – eventually confessed under police questioning that they had made up the entire story.
This didn’t stop the Muslim victim-hood industry kicking into high gear and denouncing Canadians in general as bigoted Islamophobes. The most despicable doubling down – even after the story was exposed as a hoax – came from Amina Elghawaby from the National Council of Canadian Muslims.
If that were not bad enough, the Huffington Post is of the opinion that Canadians need to apologise for the “Islamophobia” that led this poor girl to concoct the false story. Oh, the inhumanity!
Once again, the mythical “backlash” of Islamophobia towards so-called innocent Muslims has been shown to be false. Muslims are rarely, if ever the victims. The ideology of Islam commands the devout Muslim to wage perpetual warfare against the unbelievers – in fact it encourages them towards violence against non-Muslims in at least 109 verses in the Koran.
It’s time we stopped pretending that Muslims are somehow deserving of our sympathy. If they are truly interested in assimilating and integrating with the rest of us, then they should acknowledge that Islam is completely incompatible with Western democracy, and they should leave Islam behind in its entirety. That would be the intellectually honest thing to do.
Failing that, we should encourage them to reform, renounce, or get the hell out of our civilised Western countries – to paraphrase the Danish politician Jeppe Juhl. We do not need in our countries any followers of an ideology that encourages such mendacity and deceit towards unbelievers – because of the doctrine of Taqiyya, the only logical conclusion to be reached is that you can never trust any Muslim when it comes to advancing the cause of Islam.
UPDATE: Ezra Levant from Rebel Media is quite rightly pressing for public mischief charges to be pursued under Canadian Law Section 140 (1)(c).
Many people don’t know that the Crusades were NOT the result of warmongering European Christians suddenly deciding that they wanted to invade foreign lands and kill lots of innocent Muslims. This is because the historical narrative has been systematically hijacked by the Left and its stranglehold over academia – whereby only the politically correct versions of the story are allowed to be taught.
Dr Duke Pesta and Stefan Molyneux have a most illuminating discussion here, concerning the importance of the historical narrative in determining our place in the world, and why our children are being taught to regard Western Judaeo-Christian civilisation as inherently evil when in fact it is arguably the best development in the history of mankind – bar none.
In recent times, I have been taken to task for suggesting that there is a high correlation between inbreeding, welfare parasitism and Muslim immigrants to Western nations. And to be fair, I acknowledge that just because a particular Muslim may be a product of a policy of unrestricted inbreeding, that does not automatically make them a welfare parasite, or vice versa.
However, inbreeding is a contentious issue when it comes to Muslims. Personally I blame it all on Allah, who apparently thought that first cousin marriage was absolutely hunky dory. Hey Allah – yes, you, buddy – how come you didn’t predict the DNA research of Watson and Crick? And I don’t want to hear about how all that omnipotence leads to administrative errors.
When it comes to welfare parasitism – here is a perfect example of what happens when you allow Muslims to abuse our public services in the UK. How many times do we have to say it – you should never, ever, trust a follower of an ideology that promotes deceit as a primary virtue. And of course, it’s not just in the UK that we have this problem.
Some might say that it is our own fault for having such a generous welfare system, and then allowing an unrestricted number of immigrants from Muslim countries to access it. I have a radical solution – which is to have either a generous welfare system, or open borders, but not both. A country without a generous welfare system will be unattractive to most Muslim migrants, whether or not it has open borders. Simples.
If you ever wondered whether or not Islam scrambles your brain, look no further than this article. It must be wonderful to be such a logical, well-reasoned product of Turkish academia.
On the other hand – it’s obvious when you think about it. Back in the day, Noah must have communicated with his sons by mobile phone. Stands to reason – what other explanation could there be?
And before we write off all those Biblical characters as uneducated peasants, let us not forget that the Ark must have been driven by nuclear power.
Personally, I’ve always wondered if Noah collected bees. I suspect that the answer to that could be in the Ark Hives.
For the many patriots and supporters of justice who have been following this case, I will now be keeping you all up-to-date via the Counter Jihad Warrior website. Here is my original application to have the Crown Prosecution expert witness, Dr. Matthew Wilkinson, punished for Contempt of Court following my political show trial in March 2017. After nearly six months, we are “still” trying to have this application processed, however we have run into a wall of prevarication and obfuscation from the British legal system. As a consequence, we have stepped up the pressure by applying to the Royal Courts of Appeal, asking for them to adjudicate on the failure of HHJ Taylor of Southwark Crown Court (the lower court) to act according to established procedure and to provide us with a written judgment.
It’s interesting that the lower court could have simply replied to say that the application had no merit. The fact that the lower court did not do this says to my barrister that the application does indeed have merit, but to process it in my favour (which would result in my conviction being overturned) would cause the Government extreme embarrassment due to Dr. Matthew Wilkinson’s involvement with some other very high profile cases over the past few years – some of which relate to terrorism, and all of which would need to be revisited – with all of the enormous legal costs that would entail.
The application contains a lot of legal jargon, but is well worth reading to obtain a sense of the lengths that the British legal system will go to in order to protect prominent members of the Establishment and to achieve a result that serves as an example to others, no matter how unjust – i.e. the conviction of someone who cares passionately about free speech in this country and who opposes the insidious onslaught of Islamisation.

Application to punish for contempt of court in the case of R. v. Timothy Burton (Southwark Crown Court, Case Ref: T20160559, 27-30/3/2017)
Timothy Burton (Applicant), Dr. Matthew Wilkinson (Respondent)
“It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the notes of the evidence in case the justices might desire to consult him, the justices came to a conclusion without consulting him, and that he scrupulously abstained from referring to the case in any way. But while that is so, a long line of cases shows that it is not merely of some importance but is of fundamental importance that justice should not only be done, but should manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to be done. The question therefore is not whether in this case the deputy clerk made any observation or offered any criticism which he might not properly have made or offered; the question is whether he was so related to the case in its civil aspect as to be unfit to act as clerk to the justices in the criminal matter. The answer to that question depends not upon what actually was done but upon what might appear to be done. Nothing is to be done which creates even a suspicion that there has been an improper interference with the course of justice. Speaking for myself, I accept the statements contained in the justices’ affidavit, but they show very clearly that the deputy clerk was connected with the case in a capacity which made it right that he should scrupulously abstain from referring to the matter in any way, although he retired with the justices; in other words, his one position was such that he could not, if he had been required to do so, discharge the duties which his other position involved. His twofold position was a manifest contradiction. In those circumstances I am satisfied that this conviction must be quashed, unless it can be shown that the applicant or his solicitor was aware of the point that might be taken, refrained from taking it, and took his chance of an acquittal on the facts, and then, on a conviction being recorded, decided to take the point. On the facts I am satisfied that there has been no waiver of the irregularity, and, that being so, the rule must be made absolute and the conviction quashed.”‘
*Qur’an 3:54-‘And they (the unbelievers) planned to deceive, and Allah planned to deceive (the unbelievers), and Allah is the best of deceivers.’
Qur’an 7:99-‘Are they then safe from Allah’s deception? No one feels safe from Allah’s deception except those that shall perish.’
Qur’an 8:30-‘And (remember) when the unbelievers plotted deception against you (O Muhammad), to imprison you, or kill you, or expel you. They plotted deception, but Allah also plotted deception; and Allah is the best of deceivers.’
We respectfully request that you process this application in an appropriate and timely fashion.
It has been said by many that importing vast numbers of predominantly Muslim “refugees” from North Africa and the Middle East without a proper system of vetting in recent years is a recipe for disaster.
However, our political elites have gone out of their way to demonise those who have called for a better strategy. Such a strategy, if it could be devised and implemented without the interference of our virtue-signalling political elites with axes to grind, would maximise the help and support available to the estimated 20 per cent of genuine refugees without exposing the host countries to the societal dangers posed by the other 80 per cent – the vast majority of whom are economic migrants who are not in danger to the slightest degree, and who are indifferent to the pain, misery and suffering that they inflict on our unsuspecting native populations while at the same time milking our disproportionately generous welfare benefits system and contributing to a massive rise in criminality, particularly criminality of an extremely violent and sexual nature.
The powerful video “Poverty, Immigration and Gumballs” demonstrates that taking in up to 1 million refugees per year from the third world would severely compromise the societal infrastructure of any given host country while making no impression whatsoever in terms of alleviating the poverty of the third world, whose population relentlessly increases by approximately 80 million every year.
Now an Oxford professor has calculated that every dollar / pound / euro spent on transplanting a “refugee” to a Western country could be spent 135 times more effectively by helping such people in their countries of origin or in the immediate locality. With this in mind, surely it is time to end the suicidal policies of permitting unvetted immigration to Western countries and perhaps encourage genuine refugees to stay closer to home.
Here is an example of what can be done with a little flair and imagination.
I just came across this article from Defend Europa – and although there have been other articles on the Counter Jihad Warrior site – one specifically concerning the problematic definition of Islamophobia, it’s always worth getting another perspective on the subject.
On an unrelated note, here are some recent statistics for consideration:
It’s hardly Islamophobia to note that we have a very real and dangerous fifth column growing in our previously peaceful and democratic society.
