Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Multiculturalism Is Naive, Cowardly, and Continues to Kill

 

It’s been a busy and challenging week for the adherents of multiculturalism. A few days ago, one Salih Khater, originally from Sudan, ran over pedestrians with his car near the Houses of Parliament in London. Not the first such terrorist incident in the UK, where to speak openly about the murderous mandates in the Quran is considered bigoted and rude and is likely to get one labeled as a racist or member of the far-right by politicians, pundits, and news anchors. Then there’s this headline from The Daily Wire: “American Couple Believing ‘Evil Is A Make-Believe Concept’ Bike Through Territory Near Afghan Border. ISIS Stabs Them To Death.”

A young American couple who took a year-long bike trip around the world, believing that evil was a make-believe concept, took a fatal route through ISIS territory in Tajikistan, where alleged ISIS terrorists stabbed them to death.

“Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own…” – Jay Austin, vegan who worked for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Two days later, the Islamic State released a video showing five men it identified as the attackers, sitting before the ISIS flag. They face the camera and make a vow: to kill “disbelievers.”

Apparently, the values and beliefs of the ISIS murderers were very different than those held by the naïve American tourists. It’s not really a complex notion that evil people do exist and that it is not a make-believe concept.

In New Mexico, Judge Sarah Backus, a Democrat originally from San Francisco (need I say more?), came to the startling conclusion that a group of Muslim men engaged in training young children to shoot up schools and other soft targets, and notwithstanding the discovery of the corpse of a young boy at the training compound site, posed no apparent threat to the community. The judge has since been receiving a torrent of criticism and backlash for her decision to grant nominal and deferred bail to the suspects.

On a somewhat happier note, in Texas, one Ali Irsan has received the death penalty for the honor killings of his son-in-law, a Christian, and his daughter’s close friend, who Irsan believed were responsible for converting his Muslim daughter to Christianity.

It takes a special type of childish multiculturalist faith to ignore mountains of evidence, not just of the rampant murderous acts perpetrated by ISIS and other radical jihadis in the last several years, but also to ignore the eons-long history of heinous and/or murderous acts perpetrated by known serial killers, child abusers, child rapists and torturers and any number of humans on the planet who were not only willing to torture and kill but happy to do so.

This sort of extreme naivety is akin in many respects to the diehard beliefs of people firmly convinced that the earth is flat. Unlike the flat-earth adherents (enjoy the video), who generally pose no threat (unless they’re radical Muslim jihadist flat-earthers), the naïve multiculturalists seek to make all of just as blissfully ignorant of the dangers of accepting murderous ideologues who have no desire whatsoever to assimilate, choose to live in no-go zones in many of the west’s major metropolitan areas, and who actively march and protest calling for the downfall of their new host governments.

Let me leave you this. Jordan Peterson was asked to speak about free speech in response to the incarceration and continued flogging of Saudi dissident, Raif Badawi. From Wikipedia:

Badawi was arrested in 2012 on a charge of “insulting Islam through electronic channels” and brought to court on several charges, including apostasy. In 2013 he was convicted on several charges and sentenced to seven years in prison and 600 lashes. In 2014 his sentence was increased to 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes, and a fine. The flogging was to be carried out over 20 weeks. The first 50 lashes were administered on 9 January 2015. The second flogging has been postponed more than twelve times. The reason for the most recent postponement is unknown, but the previous scheduled floggings were delayed due to Badawi’s poor health. Badawi is known to have hypertension, and his health has worsened since the flogging began.

His wife, Ensaf Haidar, who took refuge in Canada after her life was threatened in Saudi Arabia, has said Badawi will not be able to survive further flogging. Ensaf Haidar has given a series of televised interviews about Badawi’s plight, including at the 2016 Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy.

    Such a perfect example of why liberalism is such a childish view of the world. And Obama didn’t help with his doctrine of “If only we float enough candles down a river, if only we show them we mean them no harm, surely they will like us.”

    That idiot certainly never spent any time hanging out at any of the many fine housing projects HUD built and maintains, or he might have had a slightly different view towards human nature.

    Nah, who am I kidding? He’d have just blamed white people.

    Brian,

    The relentless government lying and coverup by the lockstep willfully blind media is occasionally broken by the sheer horror of the act.

    Jordanian National Convicted of ‘Honor Killings’ Gets Death Sentence

    Honor killings have a history dating back to ancient Rome and are still carried out in the Middle East, but they also take place on American soil.

    A 2015 Department of Justice (DOJ) study found “that between 23 and 27 honor killings occur annually in the United States,” adding that over 90 percent North Americans victimized by honor killings were killed for being “too westernized.”

    Given the police policies corrupted by politics and mainstream media coverup, can you imagine how many more than 23-27 honor killings are occurring in the United States annually?

    Regards,

    Jim

    Amazing. They can’t even be honest about the real situation in that town. When you essentially encourage people to be separate and they resent “outsiders” to visit, you are supporting hatred and disrespect. Very sad.

    ‘I’m furious, for real. My question to these people is ‘what the f*** are you doing?’,’ [Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven] told Sveriges Radio P1.

    Stefan, it is only the people in charge of your country demonstrating that they are the people in charge of your country.

    I remember wondering why he didn’t move, and I remember thinking he seemed to assume the train would be able to stop. He gave an impression of someone so determined to make his point that he’d engage in a game of chicken with a train, daring it to run over him. I mean who over the age of 8 would do that, no matter how slow the train was moving?

    The kind of person who doesn’t realize that trains weigh tens of thousands of tons, that they stop via the friction of smooth wheels on smooth track, and who generally are so pumped up on their own wokeness they forget that physics (and chemistry and biology) simply doesn’t care about their wokeness.

    See also: people who live with bears and tigers and wolves, and think that the animals are their fwiends.

    You can rest assured that the political leaders and the educators who put the ideas in their heads that there was no evil in the world (or at least, all the world’s evil was triggered by Judeo/Christian Western Civilization) would never have biked into ISIS-held territory because they know better. But they also know there’s power to be gained by convincing naive millenials that any evil in the world is merely in the heads of fearful, paranoid westerners. It’s just that most don’t take that to the point they lose their lives believing it, as Austin and Geoghegan did.

    In reading this story, I DO find myself with some sympathy here, especially for the woman who was killed. You would hope the man in her life would exert some level of protection, some basic alertness towards any potential threats. I guess part of me is jaded about it, “culling the heard” is certainly one way to look at this. But it’s still two precious children of God that were murdered. It’s true part of it was out of pure ignorance and even child-like naivete about how the world truly is, but the evil that did the killing is more to blame than the victims here. 

    When will the left wake up to what the real danger is? I wonder if, in the last few seconds of life, they finally realized that there is real evil in the world?

    Probably thought they had done something to deserve it. Lately that ” a conservative is a liberal who was mugged” meme no longer works. They now make every excuse for their abusers. They truly are mentally ill.
