Since the attacks by CIC began, Steyn has had to deal with a bunch of moronic leftists who willingly aid and abet this travesty directed against free speech. The latest frankly stupid attack is summarized here:
Jim Henley has his say on my present legal woes:The excerpt from Mark Steyn’s America Alone that ran in Maclean’s last year is far more blatantly racist than I figured it would be when I began reading it. I knew Steyn was a bigot, with a 1920s obsession with demographic decline. (Cf. Tom Buchanan in Gatsby, who can’t stop talking about Rise of the Colored Empires, “by this man Goddard.”) But I imagined Steyn was more adroit in his use of code words and deniability feints. No! “Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes” is merely the most spectacular example of - not code words. I’m not completely shocked that Steyn would write with such frank bigotry, or that Regnery would publish it. I’m somewhat surprised that an establishment organ like Maclean’s would run it.
Nor am I surprised actual existing Muslim Canadians would take offense at the article. The article can’t touch me, an Anglo American, in the same way it can hit the emotions of a Canadian Muslim - it can’t feel as personal to me as it can to them... Mark Steyn is a racist douchebag in addition to being a ridiculous figure...
Etc. The words that so offend him are, indeed "frank bigotry". However, if you read my racist diatribe, you'll see the bigotry is not mine but Mullah Krekar's:"We're the ones who will change you," the Norwegian imam Mullah Krekar told the Oslo newspaper Dagbladet in 2006. "Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes. Every Western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries is producing 3.5 children." As he summed it up: "Our way of thinking will prove more powerful than yours."
Hello, Mr Henley? Anybody home in there? Those are quotation marks, because they're someone else's words - not the blatant racism of the racist douchebag Steyn but of a prominent Scandinavian imam. It's tempting to say to Jim Henley, "Douchebag, douche thyself", and leave it at that.
Henley, like so many other proponents of politically correct thought is so eager to suck up to his new masters that he apparently will look for any excuse to denounce people they don't like, like Steyn.
It is astonishing how oblivious the typical leftist is to the implications of his ideology--to the inevitable consequences of the political correctness and multicultural relativism he has enshrined and embraced; and how resilient and contemptuous he is to any rational critique.
This becomes understandable when you begin to realize how amazingly self-righteous and superior Henley and the high priests of PC consider themselves, as they "heroically" defend the downtrodden of the world. Insight, reason and truth--even reality-- simply pale next to the shining brightness of their loving souls. And what is mere human freedom compared to their feeling good about themselves?
What they defend and now stand for is nothing less than oppression and the destruction of liberty. We must congratulate them, however, on their faux saintliness. It goes well with the faux intellect.
