The other half of the Mark Steyn Story

Sir Humphery Appleby: He’s also against oppres­sion and per­se­cu­tion in Africa.

Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: So are we.

Sir Humphery Appleby: Yes but he’s against it when prac­ticed by black gov­ern­ments as well as white ones.

Prime Min­is­ter Jim Hacker: You mean he’s a racist..

Yes Prime Min­is­ter The Bish­ops Gam­bit 1986

Yes­ter­day I com­ple­mented Mark Steyn for men­tion­ing Molly Nor­ris, the US car­toon­ist who remains in hid­ing for offend­ing Islamists.

A sec­ond com­ple­ment is due for his per­for­mance at a Cana­dian debate inform­ing a group of left wing stu­dents of the Mass rapes tak­ing place in Europe that our friends in the media and their fem­i­nists allies have done their best first to ignore

Amer­i­can fem­i­nists, who have incited irra­tional hys­te­ria over a non-​existent “rape epi­demic” on U.S. col­lege cam­puses, will ignore this news. Amer­i­can fem­i­nists never said a word about the Rother­ham Hor­ror, in which Eng­lish girls as young as 11 were pimped out by Mus­lim preda­tors. Amer­i­can fem­i­nists don’t want to call atten­tion to cer­tain crimes com­mit­ted by cer­tain crim­i­nals, and it is not just Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accu­sa­tion against Bill Clin­ton that fem­i­nists demand that we ignore. The fem­i­nist move­ment in the United States is con­trolled by the Demo­c­rat Party, and there­fore rape is just a talking-​point to them, an “issue” that fem­i­nists help Democ­rats exploit for par­ti­san pur­poses. Because fem­i­nists are dis­hon­est par­ti­sans, their agenda requires a lot of delib­er­ate fal­si­fi­ca­tion — the phony “1-​in-​5” sta­tis­tic, the UVA rape hoax, etc. — and it also requires fem­i­nists to ignore a lot of actual rapes which do not fit the Demo­c­rat Party-​approved pro­pa­ganda narrative.

and when that wasn’t pos­si­ble to make tak­ing about the sub­ject ver­boten

there was no prece­dent in Ger­many or the rest of Europe for mass peace­time sex­ual assaults, much less ones where the police merely look on. “I have never expe­ri­enced such a thing in any Ger­man city,” a vic­tim told the New York Times. But peo­ple who did name the attacks for what they were — a man­i­fes­ta­tion of Mus­lim misog­yny and an alarm bell regard­ing mass immi­gra­tion — were vil­i­fied as racists. An old-​school Ger­man fem­i­nist, Alice Schwarzer, denounced the New Year’s assaults as a “gang bang” designed to ter­ror­ize women; she found her­self con­demned by other fem­i­nists and “antiracists.” Vic­tims refused to give their names to reporters for fear of being pil­lo­ried on social media for xeno­pho­bia. Spe­cious moral equiv­a­len­cies poured forth: not only were the attacks a mere sub­set of every­day West­ern antife­male vio­lence, but also ordi­nary cit­i­zens con­nect­ing those attacks to the out-​of-​control migrant sit­u­a­tion were no dif­fer­ent from the attack­ers them­selves. Ralf Jäger, min­is­ter of the inte­rior for the Ger­man state of North Rhine-​Westphalia, announced: “What hap­pens on right-​wing plat­forms and in chat rooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assault­ing the women.”.

It’s what made this reply from Steyn so devis­tat­ing in his debate:

In the end I sus­pect the root prob­lem between the two cases, Islamic vio­lence against women in the west and the dis­ap­pear­ing of Molly Nor­ris is the same.

To acknowl­edge the rapes in Europe that are the provence of the Islamic immi­grants is a prob­lem is to require the need to do some­thing about it, even if it means enter­ing “islamic” areas in the west to enforce law.

The same with Molly Nor­ris, to acknowl­edge that the threats against her life and safety is a vio­la­tion of all that Amer­ica stands for is to admit that those mak­ing the threats, Islamists, must be stopped and to fur­ther acknowl­edge that said Islamists have enough sym­pa­thiez­ers in the US to carry out the threats that have ensured Molly Nor­ris doesn’t exist.

Much eas­ier to instead cri­tique white 1st world col­lege stu­dents, west­ern car­toon­ists or states like Geor­gia and North Car­olina where you don’t risk get­ting your throat cut for attack­ing them.

Yesterday I complemented Mark Steyn for mentioning Molly Norris, the US cartoonist who remains in hiding for offending Islamists.

A second complement is due for his performance at a Canadian debate informing a group of left wing students of the Mass rapes taking place in Europe that our friends in the media and their feminists allies have done their best first to ignore

American feminists, who have incited irrational hysteria over a non-existent “rape epidemic” on U.S. college campuses, will ignore this news. American feminists never said a word about the Rotherham Horror, in which English girls as young as 11 were pimped out by Muslim predators. American feminists don’t want to call attention to certain crimes committed by certain criminals, and it is not just Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusation against Bill Clinton that feminists demand that we ignore. The feminist movement in the United States is controlled by the Democrat Party, and therefore rape is just a talking-point to them, an “issue” that feminists help Democrats exploit for partisan purposes. Because feminists are dishonest partisans, their agenda requires a lot of deliberate falsification — the phony “1-in-5” statistic, the UVA rape hoax, etc. — and it also requires feminists to ignore a lot of actual rapes which do not fit the Democrat Party-approved propaganda narrative.

and when that wasn’t possible to make taking about the subject verboten

there was no precedent in Germany or the rest of Europe for mass peacetime sexual assaults, much less ones where the police merely look on. “I have never experienced such a thing in any German city,” a victim told the New York Times. But people who did name the attacks for what they were—a manifestation of Muslim misogyny and an alarm bell regarding mass immigration—were vilified as racists. An old-school German feminist, Alice Schwarzer, denounced the New Year’s assaults as a “gang bang” designed to terrorize women; she found herself condemned by other feminists and “antiracists.” Victims refused to give their names to reporters for fear of being pilloried on social media for xenophobia. Specious moral equivalencies poured forth: not only were the attacks a mere subset of everyday Western antifemale violence, but also ordinary citizens connecting those attacks to the out-of-control migrant situation were no different from the attackers themselves. Ralf Jäger, minister of the interior for the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, announced: “What happens on right-wing platforms and in chat rooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women.”.

It’s what made this reply from Steyn so devistating in his debate:

In the end I suspect the root problem between the two cases, Islamic violence against women in the west and the disappearing of Molly Norris is the same.

To acknowledge the rapes in Europe that are the provence of the Islamic immigrants is a problem is to require the need to do something about it, even if it means entering “islamic” areas in the west to enforce law.

The same with Molly Norris, to acknowledge that the threats against her life and safety is a violation of all that America stands for is to admit that those making the threats, Islamists, must be stopped and to further acknowledge that said Islamists have enough sympathiezers in the US to carry out the threats that have ensured Molly Norris doesn’t exist.

Much easier to instead critique white 1st world college students, western cartoonists or states like Georgia and North Carolina where you don’t risk getting your throat cut for attacking them.
