If only the six-year-old Mohammed married had been, say, the kind of sassy, sarcastic little girl of the type familiar to viewers of unfunny sitcoms, maybe Muslims would have a better appreciation for irony…
Of course, so-called “Islamophobia” is simply a natural response to evidence of Muslim bullying (and worse), which this author helpfully mentions in his own article. (Although he condemns “extremists” for “trying to blow up buildings and airplanes” —tellingly, no mention of the many, many, many times they’ve succeeded in doing so.
And by his lights, Mark Steyn is a bully for, er, writing a factually correct article that Muslims didn’t like.
(None of Steyn’s critics have ever successfully challenged his facts, but simply his “sarcastic” “tone.” And all neglect to mention that Steyn’s assertions about “Muslims taking over the world” were gleaned from direct and accurate assertions to that effect, made by Muslim leaders themselves.)
Using the kind of accidentally comical hyperbole Muslim “writers” are so addicted to, we are informed that “the world stood still” when four young Muslim brats tried to hijack a privately owned Canadian publishing institution and attempted, through heavy handed ethnic extortion, to force it to run a radical Muslim “response” to Steyn’s writing.
That sounds a lot more like the standard definition of bullying than anything Steyn did.
But as I always say, since most Muslims are illiterate and have a written and artistic culture that is largely anemic at best, it’s understandable that so many of them remain unclear about how publishing works, let alone free speech.
We really need to halt Muslim immigration to Canada if we ever want to be rid of these tedious troublemakers.
