Make no mistake: Our Islamophobic politicians are those most responsible for fostering the make-believe phobia against which they are passing “Motions.” The “motions” themselves are cause enough to be rightly concerned. This concern is entirely rational and appropriate. It is in no way “phobic.”
The constant “anti-Islamophobia” rhetoric generated by those in the legislature and in parliament has itself become a great threat. Since our MPPs and MPs appear unwilling to speak out against the very real threat of Islam’s political agenda, they have instead directed their efforts towards motions and agendas calculated to keep informed voices to a minimum, if not entirely silenced.
Fortunately, not every political party or its leader is “Islamophobic.” There is one political party and leader with the courage to publicly say what desperately needs to be said: Freedom Party and its leader Paul McKeever who is our guest today on Just Right.
Paul’s Feb 22 Open Letter to all members of the legislature, members of the media and to Freedom Party supporters called upon “each and every MPP – of any and every party – to oppose Nathalie Des Rosiers’ Islamophobia motion in its current form.”
At issue was the term “Islamophobia” – in particular, the continual and outright refusal to define the term on the part of those calling to condemn it. Nevertheless, committed to this intellectual and moral vacuum, Ontario’s legislature unanimously passed the motion on Feb 23.
Should the various provincial and federal motions about “Islamophobia” entertained thus far become law, Canadians who would associate yesterday’s “terrorist attack” in London England with Islam might find themselves labeled “Islamophobic” – should they dare to say so publicly. After all, isn’t Islam “a religion of peace”?
Sadly, both the ideology of Islam and its definition of “peace” are incompatible with a free society. The “peace” of Islam is a political theocracy. Islamists oppose man-made law and systems of governance – arguing that all humanity must follow a divine supernatural law. In practice, of course, this means that Islamists – quite human – must rule those who do not share their hatred of democracy and of laws made by the consent of the governed.
How this supernatural law is to be established is the key to Islamist strategy. The threat from Islam is less from terrorism or attacks against free speech etc. (which are real enough), than from its political ideology aimed at establishing a theocracy.
Understanding the vulnerability of freedom in a way that our own politicians apparently do not, Islamists have discovered that the rights to Life, Liberty, and Property are a very useful weapon in their efforts to destroy those rights. In tandem with that very kind of thinking, our parliamentarians and legislators continue to co-operate with, and fuel, the Islamist ideal.
Contrary to the beliefs of many as expressed in the popular media, “motions” are not mere expressions of sentiment or emotion. “Motions” made in legislatures and in parliaments are evidence of government in motion. Worse, motions condemning “Islamophobia” are Theocracy in motion – a Theocracy approaching us rapidly as it hides behind its “politically correct” cover of “Islamophobia”.
In the words of James E Mitchell: “(Islamist terrorists) would see political correctness as a force multiplier and a cloaking device. Political Correctness allows them to operate in the open and ratchet up Sharia without being challenged. Because every time you challenge or push back, there’s this made up ‘Islamophobia.’ I’m a psychologist. I know what a phobia is. There’s no ‘Islamophobia.’ That’s something made up by the Muslim Brotherhood to keep people from saying what is actually occurring.”
Canada’s parliament and Ontario’s legislature appear to be led by Islamophobic politicians in search of the submissive state, but theocracy and the supernatural offer nothing natural or super for humanity.
The rights to Life, Liberty and Property have their source in the application of Reason to Reality. These rights are nothing “supernatural”, but have proven themselves to be “naturally super” – which is what makes them Just Right.
