I offer three instructive items of recent news, one from Europe, one from Obamarx's Amerika, the other from New Zealand, eloquent testimony to Western Civilisation's self-immolation at the altar of Islam, described by some who should know better as "Islamism":

By Vivienne Crompton on October 31, 2013 in Freedom of speech
EU-poster-europe-4-allThe European Union, in a spectacular display of blinkered dogma, has introduced regulations to promote tolerance…by locking up the intolerant. The document states that:
The purpose of this Statute is to:
(a) Promote tolerance within society without weakening the common bonds tying together a single society.
(b) Foster tolerance between different societies.
(c) Eliminate hate crimes as defined in Section 1(c).
(d) Condemn all manifestations of intolerance based on bias, bigotry and prejudice.
Yet this is immediately undermined by the following section that calls for the “penal sanction” of “overt approval of a totalitarian ideology.” So, much as we might ridicule the communist world view, its advocates would be sent to prison for their adoration of Trotsky. This is also in complete contradiction to a EU poster released last year (pictured).
Not only is this stupid and complete overkill, it undermines the entire notion of free speech. The oft quoted Evelyn Beatrice Hall made a compelling point that all supporters of free speech should keep in mind: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” ...
UPDATE A sharp eyed reader noticed that in the regulation that the EU plans on introducing Soviet style re-education camps:
Juveniles convicted of committing crimes listed in paragraph (a) will be required to undergo a rehabilitation programme designed to instill in them a culture of tolerance.
A truly Orwellian way of ‘correcting’ the youth of Europe.
As Orwell might have lampooned it: "Diversity is conformity."
In some countries, making fun of the President results in collective punishment
I would not want to live in such a country. Oh, wait.
At a Kentucky Hospital Halloween party some guy dressed like Obama in a straitjacket.
Someone took offense.
As a result, 750 people will get punished with mandatory diversity training ...
The VP of Human Resources at the medical center issued a statement to staff apologizing for anyone who was offended and personally took responsibility since the incident occurred on his watch.

Kiwis encouraged to register for Muslim Forum
Registrations are now open for New Zealand’s first Muslim World Forum and Ethnic Affairs Minister Judith Collins is encouraging Kiwis of all ethnicities to take part.
“The Forum provides a fantastic opportunity for New Zealanders who are interested to connect, explore contemporary issues and celebrate New Zealand’s diversity,” Ms Collins says.
“Participants will have the chance to discuss challenges the Muslim community may face and find solutions to support Muslim Kiwis to be active and engaged members of New Zealand society.”
The Forum is part of the Office of Ethnic Affairs’ Building Bridges Programme and is organised alongside the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand. It is sponsored by members of the Muslim Community.
Topics such as ‘New Zealand’s Transnational Links with the Muslim World’ and the ‘Triumphs and Tribulations of the New Zealand Muslim’ will be discussed.
“All New Zealanders benefit from the strength and innovation diversity brings to our businesses, workplaces and communities. This Forum provides opportunity to further embrace and enhance the benefits of New Zealand’s diversity.”
Ms Collins looks forward to addressing the Forum on 23 November in Auckland.
Wonder why 'The Trials and Tribulations of the Iranian Christian/Atheist/Homosexual' is not a topic?
I don't know which is more sickening: Islamosuperstition or the weasel words of its appeasers.
