Naming the enemy is always the first step in defeating the enemy. But can the PM be arrested and imprisoned for this hate speech outburst?
Gee. How did all those Muslims get into England?
There are practical things we can do as well.That includes making sure immigrants speak the language of their new home.And ensuring that people are educated in elements of a common culture and curriculum.This will never, never do.
Waiting for the Western World to join me in it is tiring.
Isn't this related to the dialog between Kim Gordon and Chuck D in Kool Thing? White, male sexism is loathesome but its OK for a poor oppressed black guy like Chuck D?
NYTimes has the back of the women haters and intolerant oce again.WV: trypcWhen all else fail try PC
Perhaps most controversially, he called for an end to a double standard that he said had tolerated the propagation of radical views among nonwhite groups that would be suppressed if they involved radical groups among whites.The left will destroy him for this, or attempt to do so.
It's called the tipping point.
Jeeez. I guess Barry really pissed him off with the nuclear thingy.
What is he gonna do when he lets slip the secret that Princess Anne is a dude.
Enjoyment of good character should no longer be a white monopoly, he's saying.
Cameron's point is true for more than just race, look at Chick Fil A and the gays who think we can only act as they dictate. No belief in freedom there.
The Lefties created the double standard to protect their constituents and denigrate their enemies.If this is happening in Blighty, it shouldn't be long before you see it here.
Crack - the blind worship of Kanye West is proof that America has a LONG way to go.
It's good to say this, and people occasionally do, but nothing ever changes, does it?
Alex,Crack - the blind worship of Kanye West is proof that America has a LONG way to go.Oh, didn't you hear? His last album was an (almost unlistenable) "masterpiece"!Then, after the false buying frenzy subsided, they came to their senses.Further proof our lives are engulfed in a massive lie - and, yes Alex, for him. Could there be a bigger waste of our nation's attention? gah!
This speech and its message is very encouraging to me. Hopefully, logic and common sense are making a comeback in the West. Conservatives should be prepared to give the Cee-Lo [Is that his name?] response [FU] to dumb librul programs and PC nonsense.
Dear Mr. Cameron: You're too late.
Right now it's only straight white men who can be bigoted, according to the MSM. Sharpton's biases, or Obama's attack on the Cambridge police officer, don't exactly go unnoticed, but they don't lose their jobs as say, Imus, did.
TraditionalGuy: can the PM be arrested and imprisoned for this hate speech outburst?I don't know what the rules are in Britain but in Canada Cameron's ass would be in a sling. They put people in jail up there for slighting woolly mammoths.
Note that Cameron thinks it's OK to suppress the radical thoughts of white people. There should be one rule for all, but I don't think thought suppression is the way to go. Waiting and watching the nuts seems more productive to me.
Cameron and Merkel have been so far ahead of us on this issue.The Affirmative Action industry in the US has made it impossible to talk clearly and honestly about race, and the disease has spread to not being able to talk honestly about Islam--as no less a personage than Bernard Lewis has asserted.I think this is one of the most consequential areas crying out for the operation of free speech.And I have to say that I think Althouse has failed in this particular free speech area, being very carefully politically correct most of the time.
What are you saying? Bernard Lewis can no longer talk honestly about Islam?
mesquito said...Gee. How did all those Muslims get into England?=================Same way they got into America.1. Open Borders businessmen that wanted cheap labor. Also to use the Pakis to undercut wages of native British workers, further increasing their profits while passing the social costs of the 3rd worlders not on employers, but the tax paying British masses. 2. Christian and Jewish do-gooders that wanted "noble persecuted Islamoid and African wannabe refugees "denied their human rights" in their own fouled native nests admitted to Britain. "Send us the wretched refuse from your teeming shores", powerful do-gooders said; "Even those who want to rob and kill us"
@flsBernard Lewis has spoken about an atmosphere of intimidation and repression that surrounds even scholarly discourse about Islam.Are you really surprised to hear it?
@flsHere is the report of what Lewis said and a link to the article.Lack of Openness Makes Scholarly Discussion of Islam Dangerous, Says Bernard Lewis Written by Matt Korade, CQ Staff Saturday, 26 April 2008 19:00 One of the world’s foremost Islamic scholars warned Friday that Middle Eastern studies programs have been distorted by “a degree of thought control and limitations of freedom of expression without parallel in the Western world since the 18th century, and in some areas longer than that.” Bernard Lewis, professor emeritus of Near Eastern studies at Princeton University, made the remarks in the keynote address at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa, an organization Lewis chairs. His address, titled “Studying the Other: Different Ways of Looking at the Middle East and Africa,” examined the development of Middle Eastern studies and the challenges it faces inside and outside of academia. These difficulties arise mainly from post-modernist thought, the current, combined orthodoxies of multiculturalism and political correctness, and a “clash of disciplines,” primarily between historians and Arabic linguists, which have undermined the serious, objective study of Islam.“It seems to me it’s a very dangerous situation, because it makes any kind of scholarly discussion of Islam, to say the least, dangerous,” Lewis said. “Islam and Islamic values now have a level of immunity from comment and criticism in the Western world that Christianity has lost and Judaism has never had.”http://www.asmeascholars.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1163%3Alack-of-openness-makes-scholarly-discussion-of-islam-dangerous-says-bernard-lewis&catid=12%3Aassociation-news&Itemid=73
Waiting and watching the nuts seems more productive to me.Interesting choice of a word.
Well, at least he's letting his balls drop a little. Getting them to grow by dealing with the errant muslim enclaves that have burrowed and entrenched themselves in the UK will be a lot different. Multiculty never worked and should be abandoned world wide. Especially here in the states.
Islamic Rage Boy is not pleased.
One thing to remember about Britain is that there is a very wide socioeconomic achievement gap between non-Muslim and Muslim (mainly Pakistani) immigrants.Peter
It's sad when stating the obvious is newsworthy.
"But when equally unacceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious, frankly even fearful, to stand up to them."This is news?
One thing to remember about Britain is that there is a very wide socioeconomic achievement gap between non-Muslim and Muslim (mainly Pakistani) immigrants.Probably because there's not an awful lot of employment opportunities for goat-herders in Britain's inner cities...
"Perhaps most controversially, he called for an end to a double standard that he said had tolerated the propagation of radical views among nonwhite groups that would be suppressed if they involved radical groups among whites."Yes, the left will attempt to destroy him. That this is considered "controversial" at all is an indication of the huge mountain he will have to climb, alone.
Bernard Lewis's approach to the study of the Muslim world was supplanted decades ago as Muslim scholars began to be heard. He still clings to his outsider's view, even forming his own associatio of like-minded scholars as the mainstream MESA passed him by.
@flsLOL. you are such a dork. no sense of honesty. no interest in the truth. first you question an assertion about what lewis thinks, then when it turns out he does think, you devalue him. you're just a dork. go away. you have no respect for actual communication, so you are not worth talking to.
