The power of the conspiratorial right is creating a new world and to fight it you must understand it as well as expose it.Yes, it's 'the right', despite their total lack of bleeding and dying victims lying in the streets of our capital.
...the alt-right is not saying that human rights are universal or they are nothing. It damns human rights, however they are applied. It doesn’t want a multiculturalism that does not use fake accusations of racism and Islamophobia as a cover for the abuse of religious power. It wants a white monoculture. It maintains that hundreds of millions of people with wildly variant beliefs can be lumped together as “the Muslims”.Those 'wildly variant' beliefs that all seem to stem from the one 'holy' book, you mean?
The feminist fighting sharia councils is no different from the apologist for Iran.The feminist he links to isn't, of course, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who the right have been protecting from liberals since she had to flee Holland. It's someone I've never heard of.
And probably no-one outside Cohen's purse-lipped circle of self-fellating 'intellectuals' has heard of her, either.
If all Muslims in the west are the same, what should happen to Muslim citizens in the west? Should there be a Muslim register, as Trump has suggested? Should they be deported? If converts to Islam can turn terrorist, should conversion to Islam be banned as conversion to Christianity is banned in Saudi Arabia? After men such as Farage stop blaming liberals, what are their plans for the immigrants who are now our fellow citizens?
Once, it would have been hysterical even to suggest such questions. Today, I wish our tame broadcasters would ask them.Now you want the media to start 'asking questions'? Are you sure? You do realise you and your ilk don't get to set those questions?
