Here’s a sentence you’ll see on this blog once, maybe twice a year:
I wish I’d written that.
Celestial Junk has a must-read, particularly for all those WASP/atheist Toronto “conservatives” who are really just low-tax liberals and careerist hacks:
Both Hardi and Mubarka present us with a perplexing conundrum because they are members of what has become known as the “peaceful” Muslim majority. They don’t have a violent bone in their bodies, and are clearly law abiding and productive members of Canadian society. But, they are also both part of a very small minority within Canada where they and their fellow Muslims have very little effect on Canadian politics or on the evolution of Canadian cultural norms. What if though, Hardi and Mubarka were part of a Muslim majority where they and their co-religionists held the power?
Both women are Muslims first and Canadians second. No matter how much respect one may have for either woman’s character, there is little doubt where either would place her loyalty if faced with chosing between the Canadian traditions of liberty for all, or Sharia. There is also little doubt that if they were part of a majority, they would acquiesce to the demands of the Muslim clerical class and choose Sharia for all Canadians.
It is therefore irrelevant in the grand scheme of things whether or not Hardi or Mubarka are “good” people; most people on the planet are, no matter their religion, race, or culture. What matters in the greater sense, is that as parts of the Muslim collective, neither woman would set aside her Muslim beliefs in order to safeguard and protect the full rights of non-Muslims to live as they choose. What’s even more disturbing, is that both women have experienced the gender freedoms afforded them in Canada, yet both have voluntarily resigned themselves to the greater Muslim collective.
As long as each woman is part of a small minority within Canada, she offers Canada much; but once she becomes part of a significant minority, or heaven forbid, a majority, she becomes dangerous.
It’s where the argument inevitably ends, isn’t it? Your opponent knows a nice non-Anglo-Saxon immigrant and her nice family and they all have college degrees and jobs and pay taxes and last year there was a big wedding/party and the food was terrific, so what’s the biggie?
The biggie is when they get big, and there is no longer a Judeo-Christian, Anglo-Saxon foundation and majority they are obliged to take root in/assimilate to.
It doesn’t matter how “educated” they are; the 9/11 hijackers were educated. I understand some of them even said “please” and “thank you” at the ticket counter.
Forced marriage and mandatory mask wearing in public is not a post-Englightenment Anglo-Saxon, Judeo-Christian tradition.
Neither are arcane superstitions about colours and creatures and “luck” and “fortune,” nor relaxed attitudes regarding gainful employment, finishing high school, drunk driving, bribery, gangsterism, tribal ties, littering, animal cruelty, learning English, khat chewing, vendettas, public expectoration and/or the germ theory of disease.
We needed that new guidebook for Canadian immigrants thirty years ago.
What we need now is a moratorium on immigration, period.
