"Cultural Imperalism" and Sati (Suttee)

At Piece of work in progress Dan Collins talks about the “con­se­quences of the Mul­ti­c­ult

The lib­er­als who com­prise the MSM major­ity have in essence adopted the stance that insis­tence on reli­gious tol­er­ance in Mus­lim major­ity nations is an undue impo­si­tion of West­ern stan­dards of human rights on for­eign states and cul­tures, which is an expres­sion of lin­ger­ing impe­ri­al­ism, and thus bad, while mil­lions of Mus­lims and non-​Muslims suf­fer under the yoke of Islamist fun­da­men­tal­ism in all of its forms. One of the most egre­gious exam­ples is the media’s treat­ment of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, but there are many more.

In con­se­quence, the United States stands by as eth­nic cleans­ing is accom­plished ver­sus Copts and other Chris­t­ian minori­ties in Mus­lim major­ity nations.

Not two min­utes ago on Morn­ing Joe (I’m writ­ing this at 8:37 a.m.) Mika men­tioned the killing of two sol­diers at the Frank­furt air­port. They stressed “Ger­many” and the “last time there was a shoot­ing in Ger­many” but they were unwill­ing to talk about what was brought up on MSNBC Europe’s own web page:

Fam­ily mem­bers in Kosovo described the sus­pect as a devout Mus­lim, who was born and raised in Ger­many and worked at the airport.

Nope, noth­ing to see here, not a thing going on. The Catholic min­is­ter in Pak­istan mur­dered? No com­ment, noth­ing to see here. Copts killed in Egypt, none of our busi­ness.

Our unwill­ing­ness to defend our cul­tural val­ues is doom­ing mil­lions to oppres­sion. Con­sider this story from history:

Gen­eral Charles Napier held the offices of Gov­er­nor of Bom­bay and Commander-​in-​Chief of India for the British Empire,was con­fronted with the tra­di­tion of Sati (or Sut­tee) where the new widow of a deceased man would be thrown alive on his funeral pyre. Napier for­bade it, and when lead­ers of the com­mu­nity objected say­ing it was their cus­tom. Napier with all the con­fi­dence of an 1850’s Brit with this clas­sic answer (via Mark Steyn’s book Amer­ica Alone)

You say that it is your cus­tom to burn wid­ows. Very well. We also have a cus­tom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my car­pen­ters will build a gal­lows. You may fol­low your cus­tom. And then we will fol­low ours.”

Sati or Sut­tee has been gone from India for 160 years. How many wid­ows did not die in excru­ci­at­ing pain because of this exam­ple of “cul­tural imperialism”?

And what is the sit­u­a­tion now? Now we’ve reached the point that the same British who stopped Sut­tee in India now have unof­fi­cial “gay free zones” in their cap­i­tal imposed by unas­sim­i­lated Mus­lims who are impos­ing their own “cul­tural impe­ri­al­ism” right back at em.

I think Steyn nailed it with this sentence:

Mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism was con­ceived by the West­ern elites not to cel­e­brate all cul­tures but to deny their own.

Until we look this straight in the eye we will be see­ing more head­lines like this:

Ger­man pros­e­cu­tors said on Thurs­day that Islamic rad­i­cal­ism may have moti­vated a Koso­var to open fire on an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary bus at the Frank­furt air­port, killing two United States air­men and wound­ing two others.

And it will be our own fault.

At Piece of work in progress Dan Collins talks about the “consequences of the Multicult

The liberals who comprise the MSM majority have in essence adopted the stance that insistence on religious tolerance in Muslim majority nations is an undue imposition of Western standards of human rights on foreign states and cultures, which is an expression of lingering imperialism, and thus bad, while millions of Muslims and non-Muslims suffer under the yoke of Islamist fundamentalism in all of its forms. One of the most egregious examples is the media’s treatment of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there are many more.

In consequence, the United States stands by as ethnic cleansing is accomplished versus Copts and other Christian minorities in Muslim majority nations.

Not two minutes ago on Morning Joe (I’m writing this at 8:37 a.m.) Mika mentioned the killing of two soldiers at the Frankfurt airport. They stressed “Germany” and the “last time there was a shooting in Germany” but they were unwilling to talk about what was brought up on MSNBC Europe’s own web page:

Family members in Kosovo described the suspect as a devout Muslim, who was born and raised in Germany and worked at the airport.

Nope, nothing to see here, not a thing going on. The Catholic minister in Pakistan murdered? No comment, nothing to see here. Copts killed in Egypt, none of our business.

Our unwillingness to defend our cultural values is dooming millions to oppression. Consider this story from history:

General Charles Napier held the offices of Governor of Bombay and Commander-in-Chief of India for the British Empire,was confronted with the tradition of Sati (or Suttee) where the new widow of a deceased man would be thrown alive on his funeral pyre. Napier forbade it, and when leaders of the community objected saying it was their custom. Napier with all the confidence of an 1850′s Brit with this classic answer (via Mark Steyn’s book America Alone)

“You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”

Sati or Suttee has been gone from India for 160 years. How many widows did not die in excruciating pain because of this example of “cultural imperialism”?

And what is the situation now? Now we’ve reached the point that the same British who stopped Suttee in India now have unofficial “gay free zones” in their capital imposed by unassimilated Muslims who are imposing their own “cultural imperialism” right back at em.

I think Steyn nailed it with this sentence:

Multiculturalism was conceived by the Western elites not to celebrate all cultures but to deny their own.

Until we look this straight in the eye we will be seeing more headlines like this:

German prosecutors said on Thursday that Islamic radicalism may have motivated a Kosovar to open fire on an American military bus at the Frankfurt airport, killing two United States airmen and wounding two others.

And it will be our own fault.
