Is Sweden Invaded by “Muslim Rapists”?

5 February, 2017 - 07:37

Is Sweden the “rape capital” of the world, as Breitbart and islamophobes worldwide claims? What is the background to the high figures of reported rape in Sweden? Is it the so called “Muslim invasion of immigrants” that is responsible for it? Is “the Muslim rape culture” behind it? Or is it simply so that Sweden has stronger laws against sexual offences like rape, and that Swedish women are fostered not to take shit!

I am from Sweden. When I went to school 30 years ago I heard about a case when two young white American exchange students raped Swedish young girls. Many Swedes reacted with horror. Many blamed ALL Americans for the wrongdoings of these two. “All American white youngsters are like that, racists and rapists”, “USA is insane”, “Americans are rapists”. “Too much American TV-violence”

Breitbart and Islamophobes worldwide do the same thing to Muslims. “Muslims rape women” they claim. “Muslims” are currently “raping” Europe, according to the Breitbart Senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

The so called “evidence” for this is the claim that the numbers of rapes allegedly is “skyrocketing” in Europe, and it is all blamed on Muslim immigrants.

And worst of all it is in Sweden, it is claimed. Sweden is a burning hell were “Muslims” rape, kill and burn down cars, they say.

Is Sweden the ” Rape Capital of the Western World”?

Breitbart hates Sweden more than any other European country. Sweden is both a stronghold for feminism and a country that has accepted a lot of refugees, especially Muslims. And we all know that feminists, migrants and Muslims make Breitbart go bananas! Almost every time Breitbart talks about “Muslim rapeculture” in Europe they bring up Sweden as the worst case scenario. Sweden is ” rape capital of the Western world” it is claimed.

As “evidence” for this international statistics is cited. And indeed according to that statistics lots of rapes are reported in Sweden. 63,5  rape incidents per 100,000 citizens. USA with 300 million people have 27. That would lead you to think that the numbers of rape are skyrocketing. But then you look at the figures. Sweden with ten million people have 5,960 rapes. Azerbaijan 16. India only 22,000. Lebanon 19. Mozambique 44! And Saudi Arabia claims there is almost no rape, and lash the raped women instead. Egypt has about 100 all in all. Canada 576.

Hey, what is going on here?

Statistics

Does this mean that Sweden is unsafe for women, and that Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Mozambique are paradizes for women?

Of course not. There are big differences between all countries. The first is that what is defined as rape in Mozambique and Saudi Arabia is not the same as in Sweden or Germany. And what is legally definied as a rape in USA is not the same as in Sweden.

Mozambique still have the old colonial laws that stated that rapists to go unpunished if they marry their victims and stay married for at least five years. Saudi Arabia, well… Lots of women are raped but the legal system dont care about that. Egyptian law is not protecting Egyptian women very well.

The Swedish law considers lots of acts as sexual assault and rape that other countries dont do. There has been a lot of discussion globally about the case of Julian Assange. If you agree to have sex with a man in Sweden, using condom, and you take it off in the end of the sexual act, without the consent of the women, it can be regarded as rape. Sweden has strong laws against martial rape, and rapists can be convicted even if the wife do not herself report the rape of the husband. There are proposed laws that will make sexual harrasment online a crime, like sending unsolicited pictures of the Male organ to women. Sexual bullying at work is regarded as a crime, and if it involves physical contact without consent it might be regarded as rape.

In USA martial rape is still not entirely regarded a crime in 13 states.

The second difference is that different countries report about rape statistically in different ways. If one person rapes a woman 100 times it can be regarded as ONE crime in some places. In Sweden it would be reported by the police as 100 rapes.

There has been some discussion about this online.

Imagine, for example, if your boss rubbed against you in an unwanted way at work once a week for a year. In Canada, this would potentially be a case of sexual assault. Under Germany’s more limited laws, it would be zero cases. In Sweden, it would be tallied as 52 separate cases of rape. If you engaged in a half-dozen sex acts with your spouse, then later you felt you had not given consent, in Sweden that would be classified as six cases of rape.

BBC wrote;

Official figures from the United Nations show that there were 17 kidnaps per 100,000 people in Australia in 2010 and 12.7 in Canada.

That compares with only 0.6 in Colombia and 1.1 in Mexico.

So why haven’t we heard any of these horror stories? Are people being grabbed off the street in Sydney and Toronto, while the world turns a blind eye?

No, the high numbers of kidnapping cases in these two countries are explained by the fact that parental disputes over child custody are included in the figures. If one parent takes a child for the weekend, and the other parent objects and calls the police, the incident will be recorded as a kidnapping, according to Enrico Bisogno, a statistician with the United Nations.

And the third factor is that the focus on the rights of women has led to an increase in reported rapes to the police. Swedish women are more conscious about their rights and are not afraid to report sexual assaults or rape.

 

Immigrants?

Globe and Mail writes:

But aren’t refugees and immigrants responsible for a greater share of Sweden’s sexual assaults?

In a sense. Statistics show that the foreign-born in Sweden, as in most European countries, do have a higher rate of criminal charges than the native-born, in everything from shoplifting to murder (though not enough to affect the crime rate by more than a tiny margin). The opposite is true in North America, where immigrants have lower-than-average crime rates.

Yes, you read correct. Immigrants have higher rates of criminal charges than natives in most of Europe, but in the USA it is the opposite. (We´ll have to return to this fact some other day.)

Sweden dont have statistics that cover the descent of convicted rapists. Denmark, the neighbouring country, has it.

Denmark is one of the countries that has “skyrocketing” rape figures according to Breitbart. Well there certainly is a statistic overrepresentation of immigrants in the rape statistics. The Danish paper BT reported some years ago that three times as many with immigrant background are sentenced for rapes than those with Danish background. That sounds scary, right?

Lets look at the statistics. This is from 2015. The first headline is about crimes that has to do with sexual assault (Sexualforbrydelser). The second headline deals with rape (Voldtaekt). The statistics show the number of convicted per year and their descent.

89.77% of Denmark’s population of over 5,580,516 was of Danish descent. That means that there are 10%, or about 560,000, with foreigh descent. Of them something like 200,000 to 250,000 are Muslims. In 2015 553 people were convicted for sexual offences, 456 were of Danish descent. 49 were convicted of rape, 21 were of non Danish descent. (statistikbanken) Bad, but hardly so alarming that you can claim that “Europe is collapsing” due to “foreigners” that “predominantly” are “Muslims”. (And some of the non- danes are visitors to the country, that does not live in Denmark.)

Below you have the figures for 2014. 425 with danish decent were convicted for sexual assault 2014,  39 foreigners (less than 10%). 18 with danish descent were convicted for rape, 12 of foreign descent. (statistikbanken) Yes the immigrants and their children have higher rates of crime than native Danes, but it is hardly the disaster Breitbart talks about.


There are differeces between Denmark and Sweden, but not big once. What is true for Denmark shluld be true for Sweden.

The irony is that Breitbart hates feminism and the concept of equal rights for women. Feminism makes women look ugly, they claim. They have written several articles ridiculing women that has reported about rape and sexual assault. Just make a search on Breitbart and you´ll see. Rape+hoax. Rape+fake. Rape+lie.

Breibart makes fun of rape victims, and claim there is a inflation in fake rape allegations. But still they claim to be concerned about the so called “Muslim Rape”. Hypocricy!

There are a lot of problems still in Sweden and Denmark with oppression of women, and with rape and sexual assault. And some immigrants bring with them a view of women that is not accaptable to most Swedes. But that does NOT justify slanders against all immigrats or all Muslims.

Not the first time

It should be emphasized that there are many similaritied between the current hatred against Muslims and the way Jews today, and historically, have been slandered and hated,

The Nazis spread the same lies about Jews in the 30s, as Breitbart spreads about Muslims today. It was claimed that there was such a thing as ”Jewish Rape Culture”. Especially the magazine Der Sturmer was famous for spreading these kinds of lies. 

In the picture below, from Der Sturmer,  you can see the satanic Jewish snake that is raping a woman, and in the background you can see the Jewish Talmud.

Antisemitism Germany 5

In the 1930s it was claimed that Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe were overrepresented in the criminal statistics of Germany. That might be true since they were socioeconomically poorer that native German Jews. In the same way as Breitbart does today, the nazis claimed that this was “evidence” of “Jewish criminality” and “Jewish rape culture”.

As for Sweden. Sweden, and the Nordic countries are on the top of the list of countries where women have most rights, where there is most eauality between genders.  There are problem, but lets solve them without blaming all Muslims, and without spreading lies.

Are Muslims Rapists?

4 February, 2017 - 14:43

Hatred against Jews and hatred against Muslims have a lot in common. One thing in particular is that throughout the history Jews and Muslims have been accused of being rapists. The Nazis in the 30s are well known for their claim that the Jewish men was seeking to rape “Aryan women and small girls” to “make Europe more Jewish”. The myth that all Jewish men are rapists is still being spread among antisemites. Today Muslims are victims of this slander as well.

Internet is filled with claims that Muslims rape women. The thinkthank close to President Donald Trump, Breitbart, is no exception to that. Breitbart often claims that Muslim men are sexual perverts that just want to rape women.

Milo Yiannopoulos, senior editor at Breitbart, stated;

Women will suffer terrible sexual atrocities at the hands of Muslims, but they will survive these encounters most of the time.  Muslims want to violate women, not kill them.”

A lie that is often repeated will be accepted as The “Truth” by many in the end. So too with the lies of Breitbart.”Muslim Rape Crisis“, “Muslim Rape Gang Leader“, “Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere“, “Islamic Rape Gangs“, “Muslim Child Rape“, etc etc…

Jewish and Muslim Rapeculture

By now you might ask whether a Muslim never raped a woman? Of course there are individual Muslim rapists, as there are Jewish rapists, rapists among Trump supporters, among farmers, Americans, Christians, Russians, carpenters and stamp collectors.  But if you claim that Muslims, Jews, Trump supporters or Christians  are rapists you are spreading a dangerous lie. You are implying that ALL are criminals.

According to Breitbart there is a “Muslim Rape Culture“. The Nazis spread the same lies about Jews in the 30s, as Breitbart today, and claimed that there was such a thing as “Jewish Rape Culture”. Especially the German magazine Der Sturmer was famous for spreading these kinds of slanders.

In the picture below, from Der Sturmer,  you can see the satanic Jewish snake that is raping a woman, and in the background you can see the Talmud.

Antisemitism Germany 5

The Nazis claimed that the Jewish Talmud allowed marriahes between adult men and children. It was claimed that Jews were pedophiles, and that it had its origin in the religion. If you wonder where the myth that all Muslims are pedophiles come from, or slanders about the prophet Mohammad and Aisha, you should look at the antisemitic roots of these slanders.

Antisemitism

Jewish Defamation of the Blood. That is the headline of this issue of Der Sturmer. In the bottom of the page it says that “The jews are our disgrace”.

streicher11

The Nazis took real rape, committed by individuals that happened to be Jews, and mixed with lies and fabricated stories about “rape”. The example below is from Der Sturmer 1927. According to the article an American Jew raped a German woman in Ohio. “Defamation of the Race in America” is the headline. The implied message is that “all Jews are like that”.

By claiming that Jews were rapists and by giving “evidence” about this the Nazis whipped up hatred against Jews in Germany. Truth was replaced by “alternative facts”.

193438vc3a5ldtc3a4kt

In the Nuremberg trials after World War 2 it was established that the lie that a “Jewish Rape Culture” existed was one of the crimes against humanity the Nazis committed. In Nuremberg this quote from Der Sturmer 1933 was put forward as one of the evidences of the Nazi crimes.

“One single cohabitation of a Jew with an Aryan woman is sufficient to poison her blood forever. Together with the alien albumen she has absorbed the alien soul…. Now we know why the Jew uses every artifice of seduction in order to ravish German girls at as early an age as possible; why the Jewish doctor rapes his patients while they were under anaesthetic. He wants the German girl and the German woman to absorb the alien sperm of the Jew. She is never again to bear German children… The author and abettor of such action is the Jew. He has been aware of the secrets of the race question for centuries, and therefore plans systematically the annihilation of the nations which are superior to him. Science and authorities are his instruments for the enforcing of pseudo-science and the concealment of truth.”(M-20).

But are Muslims rapists?

Of course no. The question is stupid. Are all Christian rapists? Are Americans rapists?

The lie is easy to expose. They claim that all people belonging to a group are guilty of real or invented crimes that a few persons in the group might, or might not, have committed. That is hatred, that is racism!

Canada Mourned The Victims Of Quebec City Massacre

3 February, 2017 - 23:33

Trump was silent while a whole nation to our north mourned an unprecedented Islamophobic massacre. Much respect to Canada.

via. France24

Nearly 5,000 mourners packed into a hockey arena in Montreal’s Olympic park for the funeral, while many more across Canada watched it on television.

For many in this mostly secular nation, the ceremony was their first glimpse of traditional Muslim funeral rites.

There were also prayers for the other three victims, who will be commemorated the next day in Quebec City.

Khaled Belkacemi, 60, and Abedlkrim Hassane, 41, both Algerian dual nationals, and Tunisian-born Aboubaker Thabti, 44, were shot dead, along with three other worshippers at a Quebec City mosque on Sunday.

“The pain is hard to express, it runs deep,” mourner Mohamed Lemdani told AFP.

“We are all family men who came to Canada to work and integrate into a multicultural society,” he said.

White flower wreaths were placed by the coffins, covered by the flags of the victims’ birth countries, where their bodies later would be transported for burial.

There has been an outpouring of support for Canada’s minority Muslim community in the wake of the attack, but also pockets of increased hate mongering.

At the funeral Catholics, Jews, Muslims and agnostics sat side by side, hugging each other and wiping away tears as verses of the Koran were read aloud.

“The whole nation has been shaken by this brutal and hateful attack, but in these dark moments our country has united and showed solidarity,” said Trudeau.

“(Say) no to violence, no to intimidation, racism and xenophobia,” said Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.

To Canada’s 1.1 million-strong Muslim minority, he said: “Know that you are at home here.”

The Intercept: Obama Killed a 16-Year-Old American in Yemen. Trump Just Killed His 8-Year-Old Sister

3 February, 2017 - 19:09

RIP sweet angel. You did not deserve to be killed!

By Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept

IN 2010, PRESIDENT Obama directed the CIA to assassinate an American citizen in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki, despite the fact that he had never been charged with (let alone convicted of) any crime, and the agency successfully carried out that order a year later with a September 2011 drone strike. While that assassination created widespread debate — the once-again-beloved ACLU sued Obama to restrain him from the assassination on the ground of due process and then, when that suit was dismissed, sued Obama again after the killing was carried out — another drone killing carried out shortly thereafter was perhaps even more significant yet generated relatively little attention.

Two weeks after the killing of Awlaki, a separate CIA drone strike in Yemen killed his 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, along with the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and several other innocent Yemenis. The U.S. eventually claimed that the boy was not their target but merely “collateral damage.” Abdulrahman’s grief-stricken grandfather, Nasser al-Awlaki, urged the Washington Post “to visit a Facebook memorial page for Abdulrahman,” which explained: “Look at his pictures, his friends, and his hobbies. His Facebook page shows a typical kid.”

Few events pulled the mask off Obama officials like this one. It highlighted how the Obama administration was ravaging Yemen, one of the world’s poorest countries: just weeks after he won the Nobel Prize, Obama used cluster bombs that killed 35 Yemeni women and children. Even Obama-supporting liberal comedians mocked the arguments of the Obama DOJ for why it had the right to execute Americans with no charges: “Due Process Just Means There’s A Process That You Do,” snarked Stephen Colbert. And a firestorm erupted when former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs offered a sociopathic justification for killing the Colorado-born teenager, apparently blaming him for his own killing by saying he should have “had a more responsible father.”The U.S. assault on Yemeni civilians not only continued but radically escalated over the next five years through the end of the Obama presidency, as the U.S. and the U.K. armed, supported, and provide crucial assistance to their close ally Saudi Arabia as it devastated Yemen through a criminally reckless bombing campaign. Yemen now faces mass starvationseemingly exacerbated, deliberately, by the U.S.-U.K.-supported air attacks. Because of the West’s direct responsibility for these atrocities, they have received vanishingly little attention in the responsible countries.

In a hideous symbol of the bipartisan continuity of U.S. barbarism, Nasser al-Awlaki just lost another one of his young grandchildren to U.S. violence. On Sunday, the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, using armed Reaper drones for cover, carried out a commando raid on what it said was a compound harboring officials of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. A statement issued by President Trump lamented the death of an American service member and several others who were wounded, but made no mention of any civilian deaths. U.S. military officials initially denied any civilian deaths, and (therefore) the CNN report on the raid said nothing about any civilians being killed.

But reports from Yemen quickly surfaced that 30 people were killed, including 10 women and children. Among the dead: the 8-year-old granddaughter of Nasser al-Awlaki, Nawar, who was also the daughter of Anwar Awlaki.

As noted by my colleague Jeremy Scahill — who extensively interviewed the grandparents in Yemen for his book and film on Obama’s “Dirty Wars” —  the girl “was shot in the neck and killed,” bleeding to death over the course of two hours. “Why kill children?” the grandfather asked. “This is the new (U.S.) administration — it’s very sad, a big crime.”

Milo Yiannopoulos the Tender Hatemonger

3 February, 2017 - 17:05

39817884_6989d161a2_b

BreitbartWatch series

Milo Yiannopoulos, senior editor at Breitbart, was attacked by leftist radicals recently. After the attack Milo tried to portray himself as a victim. But is it so? With this article I have collected quotes from some of the articles by Milo. The quotes show that Milo regards ALL Muslims as “goatfuckers,” “rapists,” “murderers,” a “threat,” “terrorists,” and “Nazis.” Hardly something a “loving” person would say.

Milo has a big fanclub worldwide. He is often described as a loving and kind person that does not hate anyone.

The film above has been posted on Facebook by several Conservatives and Liberals in Europe that like Milo. The idea is to show that Milo is no racist. He is a nice guy.

To counter that we need to look at what Milo himself says.

Milo is a strange person. He claims to be interested in the rights of homosexuals, but you never see him criticize his own church: the Catholic church, and its stance against homosexuality. He claims to be afraid of the “Muslim rape culture” but makes fun of women that want stronger laws against rape and Sweden which has perhaps the strongest laws in the world. He claims to be against racism but makes fun of people that are offended or subjected to racism.

Later I will analyze more in-depth the worldview of Milo and his friends. In this article I just will present the evidence that Milo is a person that is filled with hatred and is a racist.

If you say that Islam is ALL evil you are a racist. You are no better than ISIS that believes that Christianity is all evil. And Milo does not stop there. He emphasizes all the time that ALL MUSLIMS are evil. That is no better than the Nazis, or ISIS, that claim that all Jews are evil.

So lets look at a few speeches.

MILO: “‘Muslims Are Like The Borg'”

He compares Islam to the evil Borgs in Star Trek. The headline Milo himself has chose for this lecture is “MILO: “‘Muslims Are Like The Borg.'” Muslims, not only Islam.

For those who don’t know here is the Wikipedia entry on the Borg:

The Borg are a fictional alien race that appear as recurring antagonists in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are a collection of species that have been turned into cybernetic organisms functioning as drones in a hive mind called “the Collective” or “the Hive.” The Borg use a process called assimilation to force other species into the Collective.

Islam is “cruel,” “hideous,” like “ISIS.” “Islam is collectivist, you can see why so many leftists like it.” “Islam is cult-like.” “Islam is like the Borgs”… Islam can be “compared to feminism,” both believe that you either “have to conform or die.” “Islam” is “the primary threat to freedom… and to liberty.” All non-Islamic people are to be “feared” Islam teaches.

“Rally for America”

Rally for America

Milo claims that all Syrian male refugees are terrorists and rapists.

We know from Wikileaks and other sources that Hillary Clinton truly plans to flood the country with Syrian Refugees. I love that term, “Syrian refugee.”  It is a typically Clintonesque deception.

Most of these guys aren’t Syrian, and none of them are refugees.  Refugees are women, children, the elderly, and the sick.  These guys are young, fighting age males looking for action — sexual action, terrorist action, maybe both…

We know Muslims hate everyone, they go out of their way to make that clear. Not even other Muslims are safe from them! But if we put together a top list of Muslim targets, it is Jews, Christians, women, and gays….

The women of America will be terrorized and victimized as they have been in Europe.  This isn’t rocket science.  This is the rape culture the nutty feminists have been whining about…. If Hillary gets her way, Muslim immigrants will arrive along with their signature delicacies: lamb chops, yoghurt and gang-rape…

Now I must make one controversial statement– women will suffer terrible sexual atrocities at the hands of Muslims, but they will survive these encounters most of the time.  Muslims want to violate women, not kill them. Unfortunately for gays, Muslims have no compunction about slaughtering us…. What’s at stake is nothing less than the survival of Western civilization. There’s a war on… There is no radical Islam. It’s just Islam…

Many on the left will call what I just said Islamophobia. Islamophobia, the irrational fear of Islam, is a nonsense term. The fear of the spread of Islam is very rational, and it is the President of the United States job to protect you in America and we throughout the West from it.

“Here’s Everything I Wanted To Say About Islam Yesterday, But Couldn’t”

Here’s Everything I Wanted To Say About Islam Yesterday, But Couldn’t

Milo claims that all Muslims are murderers and terrorists, that especially wants to kill homosexuals.

America has a Muslim problem. Notice my wording carefully here. It isn’t a radical Muslim problem. It isn’t an ISIS problem, an Al Qaeda problem, a Taliban problem, or any of the Muslim terror groups that have sprung up in 2016. The terror attack on Saturday is an expression of mainstream Muslim values…

Let me give you a clue,  liberals — Muslims don’t just use rifles, they use bombs, airplanes and knives, they like did in Paris Monday night. They will use anything to kill the hated “infidels.” …

Gays and Lesbians must have the mindset of the Jews that fought so many hard conflicts against Muslim aggressors in the past. They realized they had sat and watched while Germany committed unspeakable atrocities against their people. They said Never Again and meant it.

Today is the LGBT community’s chance to say Never Again. Never Again will we allow Muslims to slaughter us, and never again will we support politicians who enable despicable terrorists to commit these senseless crimes.

I’ve Found the Perfect Job for All These Poor Jihadist Refugees

I’ve Found the Perfect Job for All These Poor Jihadist Refugees

Milo once again claims that Syrian refugees are jihadists. ”Radical Islamic jihadists — or “Syrian refugees,” as the mainstream media likes to call them”… He then equals feminists to jihadists.

One of the kinks we had to work out is what our jihadists should do with themselves once settled. After all, cleaning and oiling a Kalashnikov takes a mere eleven minutes, and harassing the local populace to the point they are afraid to enter the neighborhood is a hobby, not a career choice. Likewise the rape of local schoolchildren and stealing from corner shops.

Where in the West could we possibly find an appropriate workplace for these otiose thugs? One which values oppressive fanaticism, does not tolerate speech outside of specific and carefully-groomed lines of thought and which relies on intimidation to prevent the spread of illicit ideas?

Well it’s a lot easier question than you think. We will plonk them down in the gender, racial equality, and diversity offices on university campuses.

If you think about it, the similarities between these two groups are stunning. Both like to communicate by shrilly screaming the same thing over and over, with no thought behind the words. Whether it’s “Black Lives Matter!” or “Allahu Akbar!” both groups have a fondness for yelling mindless slogans while committing acts of violence and larceny.

Both believe in turning back hundreds of years of social progress; campus diversity goons to avoid “offending” anyone, and the jihadists for… whatever religious grounds they are claiming this week justifies acid in young girls’ faces or the hanging of homosexuals. Both accomplish their goals by creating a culture of fear in which raising one’s voice can result in expulsion, charges in a kangaroo court, or worse.

Jihadists are the only people outside of the radical feminist coven who agree that a global invisible patriarchy is holding women down. Sure, they differ on whether that is a bad thing, but mutual belief is a start isn’t it? (And besides, modern feminism is so totally insane there’s good reason to think it is solidifying male power by alienating ordinary women from the cause.)

They also fully buy into the idea of rape culture, which feminists are finding it harder and harder to sell in the West. There’s a bit of disagreement on the negativity of this topic, too, but I doubt the feminists will complain as each campus becomes a miniature Sweden in terms of rape statistics.

MILO: On His First Day, Trump Could Stop More Ohio States from Happening

MILO: On His First Day, Trump Could Stop More Ohio States from Happening

All Muslims are terrorists and all Muslims are “oppressors,” Milo claims.

Trump has consistently recognized threats to America before they happen. He predicted that Muslim refugees would be a problem long before this attack, and he was talking about the threat of Islam long before Omar Mateen’s attack on the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando…

We should help those fleeing terror and oppression in the Middle East. But that is the polar opposite of the Left’s suicidal refugee policy, which bring the radicals and the oppressors in alongside the genuine victims.

Donald Trump must freeze Muslim immigration until a proper vetting system is in place. (Or, you know, just freeze it forever.) If he does not, there will be more terror on America’s streets in the years to come.

10 Things Milo Hates About Islam

10 Things Milo Hates About Islam

Islam is… hilarious… Their outfits are hilarious. Ridiculous. Is there anything more comically sinister than the sight of a herd of women swathed in black bedsheets? (…)

Is there anything more richly amusing than the crybully faux-victimhood of those who worry about “Islamophobia” and hijab-pulling in the wake of terror attacks that leave dozens dead?  (…)

Muslims do far more than offend feminists, or offend women. They’re actually enslaving them, forcing them into marriages, slashing their genitals — which, unlike the male genitalia, aren’t improved by a little trim.

Muslims think they own women to such a degree, that they think women who wear shirts above their ankles in European countries are fair game to be raped…

You’ve got a religion, in Islam, that not only bans alcohol, but bans bacon too. At least Jews are sensible enough to ban just one of those things…

If you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile, and rape everything inside it. And they won’t stop spreading…

We hear a lot about moderate Muslims, but in practice we don’t see them. All the moderate Muslims I know are ex-Muslims, or haven’t been to Friday prayers for months, or even years…

The entire world loves Malala, the Nobel Prize winning champion of education for girls.  But look at her opinion, which passes in the media as moderate: “The more you speak about Islam and against all Muslims, the more terrorists we create.”

So Malala’s opinion is if we all just shut up and did what Islam wants, which is to submit, they wouldn’t need to shoot us, stab us, or blow us up.

Criticise us and we will kill you for your bad words. Great to know a Nobel prize winner has this sort of vision. I can’t be the only person who reads that and takes it not as an exhortation to peace, but as a threat… Since Islam views God as a non-rational tyrant, the religion naturally tends to produce bloodthirsty, irrational tyranny – a category that nicely covers ISIS, the Taliban, and many other Islamic regimes…

More examples

MILO at WCU: “Muslims and Feminists Both Hate Free Speech.” “Islam is a hilarious religion. The women looks ridiculous”

MILO: When In Rome, Muslims Rape Everyone And Claim Welfare.” The Muslim refugees that are coming to Germany are 22 year old men ready to fuck and fight.” “Migrants are overwhelmingly fighting age men.” “Muslims have NO plans to fit in the culture.” They want to bend the knees of Western civilization the way they always have, with swords and fire.”

Political Correctness Makes Race and Genetics Taboo in the West, Which is Why China is Winning

Political Correctness Makes Race and Genetics Taboo in the West, Which is Why China is Winning

One last example to show that Milo is a racist.

As the New York Review of Books put it, in its coverage of Wade’s A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History, there is now a “statistical sense” in which races are real… Wade doesn’t shy away from the disquieting implications of his theories: our genes, he says, could explain why some countries are wealthy while others languish in penury.

In fact, the more we discover about ourselves from genomics, the more it becomes apparent that science and ideology are on a collision course.  Why? Because it’s totally unacceptable to say in public these days that different races might have different behavioral characteristics, and that those characteristics might be genetically determined… even though that’s the way the science seems to be pointing…

To be fair, it’s easy to understand why researchers get cagey. The all-consuming cult of equality struggles with any suggestion that social behaviors might be genetically determined: that habits and predilections might have diverged along with skin color. No scientist wants to be responsible for research that justifies crude observations about white sexual mores or black dietary preferences.

It’s one thing to say that tribal cultures have smaller trust circles; quite another to say that science can explain why black people smoke menthol cigarettes, or why Asians are good at maths. (Or, for that matter, why people with ginger hair are less sexually attractive.)…

These examples serve to illustrate what a touchy subject genomics is, even for the scientists and science writers who in other circumstances–for example, in their crusades against religion–demand that evidence should be followed wherever it may lead.

It is a common theme in other speeches and writings of Milo:

IQ, an imperfect measure of lots of things but a reliable guide to genius, is 60 to 80 per cent heritable

Well. Guess what the readers thought about the text about race and genetics and China? The comment section of Breitbart was filed with hate against Blacks and Jews. And it was implied that Global Warming and the “ban” against race-science had the same origin.

 

Milo Yiannopoulos is spreading a hatred that is no different from the hatred the Nazis spread in the 20s and 30s. It is a kind of hatred that you can compare to the hatred in Nazi magazines like Der Sturmer.

Fox News Still Blaming Moroccan Victim For Quebec Massacre

30 January, 2017 - 23:36

Fox News, which is essentially a hate organ of the Trump regime at this point is still propagating a horridly deceptive headline that disagrees with their own story claiming that a Moroccan was behind the attacks in Quebec.

The Moroccan man initially described as a suspect by the media is now being treated as a “witness.”

At the intercept Glenn Greenwald and Murtaza Hussain reported the wildly inaccurate propaganda of the news media outlets and the false narrative they have been pursuing. Not surprisingly Trump’s press secretary also propagated the lie:

Almost immediately, various news outlets and political figures depicted the shooter as Muslim. Right-wing nationalist tabloids in the UK instantly linked it to Islamic violence. Fox News claimed that “witnesses said at least one gunman shouted ‘Allahu akbar!’,” and then added this about the shooter’s national origin.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer exploited the attack to justify President Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. “It’s a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the President is taking steps to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to our nation’s safety and security,” Spicer said at this afternoon’s briefing when speaking of the Quebec City attack.

Alexandre Bissonnette: Alleged Perpetrator of Massacre at Quebec City Mosque

30 January, 2017 - 20:58

This is the spawn of the Islamophobia movement, the Trump hate and fear-mongering. Will we have calls to profile and ban Right-wing Whites now?

Alexandre Bissonnette has been accused of killing six people and wounding eight others in a “barbaric” massacre Sunday night at a Quebec City mosque, TVA News reports.

The 27-year-old entered the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec and opened fire with a rifle, shooting members of the mosque as they prayed, police and witnesses say.

He is in police custody and was being questioned Monday morning. He is expected to face murder charges.

A second man, Mohamed el Khadir, was previously identified by authorities as a suspect. He was taken into custody near the mosque and questioned, but Quebec Provincial Police said in a tweet Monday afternoon that he is no longer considered to be a suspect. He is now being called a witness.

Little was known about Alexandre Bissonnette as of Monday morning, as police were still working to determine what led to the shooting. But details from those who knew him and information from his social media pages began to be uncovered by the afternoon.

According to his Facebook page, Bissonnette is from Cap-Rouge, Quebec.

Bissonnette has a twin brother, a high school classmate told Le Journal de Quebec.

“Apart from his twin brother, I did not see him with other people,” said Mikael Labrecque Berger, in French. He said Bissonnette was an “unpopular nerd,” and was not always taken seriously by classmates.

“He replied to insults, but never with physical violence,” Labrecque Berger said, adding that he and his twin brother didn’t integrate with other students. They were usually only seen together, he said.

The former classmate, who had only seen him once since high school, said he didn’t know about any politics or beliefs that could have sparked the shooting.

But another former classmate, Jean-Michel Allard-Prus, who studied politics with him, at Université Laval and has kept in touch with him, told Le Journal de Quebec that Bissonnette, “has right-wing political ideas, pro-Israel, anti-immigration. I had many debates with him about Trump. He was obviously pro-Trump.”

Bissonnette is studying anthropology and political science at Université Laval in Quebec City, and has been a student there since 2012.

Allard-Prus said Bissonnette was shy and timid, and didn’t talk to many other people.

But he was active on social media and expressed his political views there, according to a local pro-refugees group. His Facebook page has been deleted in the hours after he was named as a suspect in the attack.

Frank Gaffney Behind Anti-Muslim “Faith Leaders for America”

27 January, 2017 - 21:20

Eli Clifton, reports on the founders and backers of the Islamophobic “Faith Leaders of America” that is disguising itself as an “interfaith” group opposed to “Islamic terrorism” when in fact it is a proxy of Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.

via. Lobelog 

As it turns out, similarities to Gaffney’s brand of anti-Muslim advocacy aren’t just a coincidence. The group, Faith Leaders for America, was apparently started by Gaffney’s organization, the Center for Security Policy (CSP), a fact the coalition never acknowledges on its website or press releases.

LobeLog reviewed domain name registration filings for the group and found that, despite an apparent effort to anonymize the registration, Center for Security Policy staff members Adam Savit and Christine Brim submitted the initial registration.

When contacted about CSP’s ownership of the group’s domain name and potential involvement in the interfaith coalition’s work, Gaffney acknowledged to LobeLog that his group was playing a behind-the-scenes role in shaping the group’s work. Gaffney said:

The Center for Security has provided some initial administrative support and counsel to the informal Faith Leaders for America coalition, and may continue to do so if asked by the Faith Leaders.

Indeed, the group’s positions have consistently fallen in line with Gaffney’s laser focus on promoting conspiracy theories about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. government reframed in the context of an interfaith movement (the group includes one rabbi and no Imams). In a prayer delivered at the group’s press conference, Jerry Johnson, president of National Religious Broadcasters, said:

President-Elect Trump, tomorrow you will become the president of the United States. We, Faith Leaders for America, want you to know you have our prayerful support as you begin to counter jihad and protect Americans from Islamic terrorism.

When you label the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, we support you.

When you call Islamic terrorism what it is, Islamic extremism, we support you.

When you stop the mass importation of unvetted immigrants from areas that harbor, train, and send out jihadists, we support you.

When you require appropriate extreme vetting for those who do enter the USA from these same areas, we support you.

In other words, President-Elect Trump, we’ve got your back. Some religious leaders falsely contend that these actions would violate religious freedom. Actually, we know these steps are proper, legal, and necessary to protect our First Amendment freedoms of religion, speech, press, and assembly.

Indeed, singling out a single religious group for scrutiny, as Trump appears to be doing with his forthcoming executive order excluding refugees from Muslim majority countries, is almost certainly going be challenged in court as a violation of religious freedom.

Aziz Ansari Monologue Skewer’s “Lower Case KKK” & American Islamophobia

24 January, 2017 - 19:50

In my experience most people either love or hate Aziz Ansari’s comedy. I for one think he is one of the better comedians out there precisely because he does effectively tackle social commentary, and is one of the few celebrities calling out Islamophobia.

Here is the transcript of his SNL monologue in which he skewers “the lower-case kkk” movement, racism and Islamophobia. (Credit: The New York Times):

So, look. We’re divided. It’s O.K. We’ve always been divided by some of these big political issues. It’s fine. As long as we treat each other with respect and remember that ultimately we’re all Americans, we’ll be fine.

But the problem is —

[APPLAUSE]

The problem is, there’s a new group. I’m talking about this tiny slice of people that have gotten way too fired up about the Trump thing for the wrong reasons. I’m talking about these people that, as soon as Trump won, they’re like, “We don’t have to pretend like we’re not racist anymore! We don’t have to pretend anymore! We can be racist again! Whoo!”

[MR. ANSARI PUMPS HIS FIST, THEN LOWERS IT INTO A NAZI SALUTE]

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! No, no! If you’re one of these people, please go back to pretending. You’ve got to go back to pretending. I’m so sorry we never thanked you for your service. We never realized how much effort you were putting into the pretending. But you gotta go back to pretending.

[APPLAUSE]

Hey. I know it’s been a rough couple of years. Obama, “Empire,” “Hamilton.” It’s just been hit after hit after hit. “Star Wars” movies where the only white characters are stormtroopers. I get it! It’s been rough! But you’ve got to stop.

You know who I’m talking about. There’s like this new, lower-case K.K.K. movement that started — this kind of casual white supremacy. “Oh, let me put my foot in the pool and see how cold this water really is.” No! No! I’m talking about these people that are running around saying stuff like, “Trump won! Go back to Africa!” “Trump won! Go back to Mexico!” They see me: “Trump won, go back — to where you came from.”

Yeah. They’re not usually geography buffs.

[APPLAUSE]

Is that the plan, by the way? We’re all going to move? All the minorities? Forty-some percent of the country? Every minority’s going to move?

Beyoncé’s going to move? Beyoncé ain’t moving.

I ain’t moving. O.K.? My parents —

[APPLAUSE]

My parents moved from India to South Carolina in the early ’80s. They didn’t move until nine years ago. You know where they moved? North Carolina. They love it here. They’re not leaving.

[APPLAUSE]

Lower-case K.K.K., man. They’re out there. You know? Hate crimes and stuff are on the rise. You know, as far as people in my own skin tone, brown people. I think part of the problem is a lot of these people, they just haven’t interacted with any brown people in their normal life. The only people they see are these monsters in the news who are just a drop in the ocean.

Maybe what needs to happen is when they do the news report, they should do a second report about some other brown people that are just up to normal stuff — just to calm those people down.

So the reports are like: “The suspects are considered armed and dangerous. Not armed and dangerous — these four other Muslim people that are eating nachos in Chicago. Let’s go to footage of them. Uh-oh, looks like Nasir just spilled a little cheese on his khakis! Got a little overambitious with that last dip! We’ve all been there!”

[APPLAUSE]

A lot of people are Islamophobic, which doesn’t make sense on paper because you know the God in Islam is the same God that was revealed to Abraham. Judaism, Christianity, same God. But people are scared. Why? Because any time they watch movies, and TV shows, and a character is Arabic, or they’re praying or something like that, that scary-ass music from “Homeland” is underneath it, it’s terrifying!

[APPLAUSE]

People are like, “Aah! What are they saying?” Just “God is good!” Normal religion stuff! It’s O.K.! You want to end Islamophobia? Honestly, just change that music. Like, if the music was different — if it was just, like, [singing theme to “The Benny Hill Show”], people would be like, “Man, Islam its one whimsical religion, isn’t it?”

[APPLAUSE]

I think Trump should make a speech. A real speech denouncing the lower-case K.K.K. Don’t tweet about me being lame or the show. Write a speech. A real speech. Because these people are out there, and it’s pissing a lot of people off. And I think it could make a difference. Because other presidents have done things like this, and it has helped. Hate crimes and stuff that went down.

Now George Bush, George W. Bush made a speech after 9/11, and it really helped. Things changed. This what he said in his speech, and I’m paraphrasing slightly. He said, “Islam is peace. The perpetrators of these attacks, they don’t represent Islam. They represent war and violence. Our enemies are not our Muslim brothers and sisters. Our enemies are a network of radical terrorists.” And everyone applauded. Democrats, Republicans, it didn’t matter. Because it’s not about politics. It’s about basic human decency and remembering why the country was founded in the first place.

And I was sitting there and I’m watching this speech and I’m like, “What the hell has happened? I’m sitting here wistfully watching old George W. Bush speeches?” Just sitting there like, “What a leader he was!” Sixteen years ago, I was certain this dude was a dildo. Now, I’m sitting there like, “He guided us with his eloquence!”

[APPLAUSE]

I want to leave you guys with a serious thought. I know there’s a lot of people that are worried right now. This is a weird time.

If you’re excited about Trump, great. He’s president. Let’s hope he does a great job.

If you’re scared about Trump and you’re very worried, you’re going to be O.K., too. Because if you look at our country’s history, change doesn’t come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people. And if Day 1 is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen.

[APPLAUSE]

Good luck to you.

Donald Trump Inauguration: Between “Rivers of Blood” And “American Carnage”

20 January, 2017 - 23:40

By Garibaldi

I am not teary-eyed at the departure of President Barack Hussein Obama (though it was damned nice to have a US supremo with that middle name) as many lament his exit. I am not going to say goodbye to “America’s first Muslim president” with cuddly feelings of warmth, like he was a part of the family. I do understand the angst but cannot partake in the nostalgia or sentimental analysis that doesn’t reflect soberly on his track record.

Today is a new day. Gangster-in-chief Trump’s proclamations and cabinet picks will translate into a war on minorities: Blacks, Latinos, women, Muslims, Jews and LGBTQ. The appointment of non-experts in positions such as: Secretary of State, Environment, Education, Housing, etc. means the greater decay of these institutions and the USA. He decried the,

“crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”

What this actually means is a throwback and reinforcement of policies that ravaged Black and Brown communities: the war on drugs, the prison industrial complex, harsh laws for petty offenses, draconian immigration laws, and the militarization of the police. To “bring back the borders” means to separate and divide families, for more immigrants and refugees to die of thirst and starvation in the deserts and wastelands of the Southwest.

The animosity and threat isn’t simply subtle or indirect. Based on Trump’s rhetoric and the views of those who surround him, there will be a holy “war on Islam”; fodder for ISIS/AlQaeda videos and recruitment. Trump and company may use rhetoric such as he did in today’s inauguration speech about taking on “radical Islamic terrorism,” and eradicating it “from the face of the earth” but in reality the distinctions between Islam and violent militants will not be hard and clear.

Seemingly positive statements about working with “moderates” and “reformers” will be coupled with the elision of Islam with “terrorism” or as in the Bush years “fascism,” and “evil.” He may even appoint Asra Nomani as Chief Islamic Reformist! On the other side he will empower and embolden Christian dominionists and Zionist allies who can’t wait for Jerusalem to be recognized by the US as Israel’s capital.

Muslim American institutions will be attacked. Ted Cruz’s bill to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist organization” is just a front to go after American organizations such as CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MPAC etc. that the right attempts to label as “Muslim Brotherhood front organizations.” The worst excesses of the “War On Terror” are set to continue and expand, including torture, extraordinary renditions, black sites, assassinations, curbs on civil liberties and personal rights. Anti-Sharia law bills will be reintroduced as they have been in two states already. Hate crimes and violations of civil rights will be given less attention and no priority.

The parallels between Enoch Powell’s “rivers of blood” speech and Trump’s “American carnage” are striking despite the distance of 48 years. It has the same xenophobic stench and the same foreboding darkness. However, Powell never held a senior political post after the speech which was widely panned whereas Trump is slated to lead the US for the next four years.

Not all is lost. This is a time when those in the US and their friends and supporters abroad must come together in true solidarity. It is not Utopian or idealist to believe that we can make the world a better place. Instead of “bringing back the borders,” I hope and pray that we will break them.

Montana: One-man Protest With Rifle Outside Montana Mosque

13 January, 2017 - 19:37

KRTV.com | Great Falls, Montana

(h/t: Frank S.)

By Jennifer Cruz, Guns.com

A one-man protest Monday outside of a mosque in Bozeman, Montana, led to a brief lockdown at a nearby school until police determined the protester wasn’t a threat.

The protester, who was not shy about showing his face but did not want to he identified, showed up at the Islamic Center of Bozeman that morning carrying an American flag with a rifle slung over his shoulder.

“I’m responding to the message of hate that’s being shown here,” he told reporters.

But the gun the protester was carrying prompted a response from the police department. Authorities said the man was compliant and, although he wasn’t breaking any laws by doing so, agreed to put his rifle away.

He continued the protest while carrying an American flag and by the afternoon, a counter-protester, Andy Boyd, could also be found outside of the place of worship. Boyd said he was there to show support for the country’s religious freedom, a right which he said the nation was founded upon.

Then, a little later, a woman who said she was a Muslim, walked out to the snow-covered sidewalk and offered the protester a cup of coffee. The woman said the protester had every right to do what he was doing and there was no reason for them to fear one another. But the woman said she was glad to see the man put the rifle away, citing the close proximity to the school, which she said made people nervous.

The woman said there has been Muslims in the Bozeman area since the 70’s and there has never before been a problem.

“Most of us just want a place to pray in peace,” she said.

South Africa: ‘Islamophobia’ Behind Mosque Desecrations

12 January, 2017 - 19:39

The community of West Cape, South Africa has experienced two incidents of desecration against mosques. Authorities are saying that the incidents bear the hallmark of a “calculated use of Islamophobic methods.”

AlJazeera

Achmat Sity, the imam of the 110-year-old Kalk Bay Mosque, urged Muslims to remain calm and called for unity.

“This mosque has been here for over 100 years and this is the first time an incident like this has happened,” he told Al Jazeera.

“There have been burglaries in the past, but this was despicable.”

The local branch of the ruling ANC party condemned the attacks as “disgusting” and called on South Africans “to stand united in protecting the culture of coexistence”.

Pigs are an animal considered ritually unclean in Islam and believers are prohibited from consuming them.

The desecrations came less than a week after a white Western Cape resident posted a message on a community Facebook page calling for mosques to be burned down. The post has since been deleted.

Farid Sayed, the editor of Muslim Views, a national newspaper, said that while the attacks may be isolated in nature, they indicated a failure of some segments of post-apartheid South Africa to fully integrate.

“Racist attitudes are still very deeply embedded in post-apartheid South Africa, all it took was a simple Facebook post to spark this,” he said.

“People living in white-only communities believe they have to fight to keep Muslims out, they think they don’t have the state’s backing.

“This anger – from these racists and bigots – has been heightened by right-wing media outlets that continue to demonise and insult Muslims,” he added.

No Breitbart, a Muslim mob didn’t set fire to Germany’s oldest church

7 January, 2017 - 22:45

No Breitbart, a Muslim mob didn't set fire to Germany's oldest church

Journalists have condemned a report by Breitbart news that claimed a mob of 1,000 men had attacked police and set fire to a church, calling the article a distortion of facts.

By Emma Anderson 5 January 2017 14:34 CET+01:00

Breitbart wrote an article about New Year’s Eve in Dortmund on Tuesday with the headline “Revealed: 1,000-man mob attack police, set Germany’s oldest church alight on New Year’s Eve”.

“At New Year’s Eve celebrations in Dortmund a mob of more than 1,000 men chanted ‘Allahu Akhbar’, launched fireworks at police, and set fire to a historic church,” the alt-right website reported.

The report was attributed to local news site Ruhr Nachrichten, which fired back on Wednesday, accusing Breitbart of “using our online reports for fake news, hate and propaganda.”

Ruhr Nachrichten pointed out how Breitbart attributed separate unconnected incidents to a larger, collective “mob”.

There was in fact a total of around 1,000 people gathered to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Leeds Square, including “large and small groups” of young, foreign men as well as families with children, according to Ruhr Nachrichten.

The original report by the local news site from that night describes how some individuals did start launching fireworks from within the crowd towards police, who told them to stop but were ignored. Broadcaster WDR reported that officers then issued orders for some people to leave and took some into custody.

While Breitbart wrote that the “mob” set the roof of Germany’s oldest church on fire, Ruhr Nachrichten pointed out that this was also not accurate.

St. Reinold is not Germany’s oldest church – that would be the Cathedral of Trier – and a small fire had started on some netting on scaffolding around the church, not the roof, due to one firework.

And while Breitbart states that the “fireworks were launched at” the church, there was no indication from local news outlets or from the fire services that the fire had been started intentionally.

The fire was small and lasted 12 minutes before firefighters put it out, Ruhr Nachrichten reports.

Police told local media that overall it was a quiet night.

For The Coming Year: What Would You Like To See?

6 January, 2017 - 20:20

idea

By Garibaldi and Ilisha

Dear Loonwatchers,

First, I want to thank you for your continued commitment to reading and engaging, you have made the site worthwhile and better. I will admit that over the past year, and even before then, the output of our content has really slowed, and I want to apologize for that. The main reason for this is that we, the writers (all volunteers), just cannot commit the hours of research, writing and editing necessary to produce good material AND balance work-life responsibilities (i.e. we need to recruit MORE writers).

The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States has emboldened the same Islamophobes that we have challenged, refuted and exposed for years now. Many of these same Islamophobes will be in positions of power or close to the “officials” who will make up the incoming administration.

Paying attention to and investigating the inner machinations, policies and programs formulated by Trump and his team of bigots is going to be crucial for the next four years (Trump may not last that long but his administration will). I’d like to say that I feel the media and social media activists are up to the task but our present-day reality is that we are traversing uncharted waters, where “fake news” and lies are given credence and repute over facts and truth. For quite some time the trend of online media consumers has been to consume that news which already conforms to one’s worldview or ideological and political convictions. (So my question here is how can we be effective in this environment?)

The new political and media landscape means we have to change things up here at Loonwatch, it isn’t 2009 anymore. Your feedback as how best to realize this change is vital. Our initial remit has been fulfilled: taking on the loons and Islamophobes on the internet. Many of our articles, have helped shed nuance and light in the conversation on Islam, Muslims and Muslim Americans. The same articles have challenged the prejudiced narratives about Islam and Muslims. When it comes to legitimacy, the likes of Spencer and Geller have been defeated on the plane of ideas and banned from travel to the UK; a nation with strict laws against hate speech. While Spencer and Geller may have been defeated their propaganda has been taken up by others who have political cache, and with Trump’s election has propelled the ideas of the Islamophobia movement into a greater relevance.

I hope you can share what you would like to see this year? How can we improve? What topics, issues should be covered? I can predict that for sure, consistent content is on the top of the list. As a way of starting us off I want to ask: how valuable and interested are you in seeing more satire? Would you like more articles and media that take on concepts that are twisted by Islamophobes, such as articles done by Danios in the past on Jihad, Taqiyyah, etc.? Any of your thoughts and ideas, whether it be related to design of the site, content and media, integrating social media, and animation are welcome, don’t hold back!

The United States of Donald Trump

13 November, 2016 - 22:30

“It feels like 9/11.”

This is how a large swathe of racist America felt after Barack Hussein Obama was elected in 2008.

Now they are empowered.

The United States elected a fascist. A man who whipped up hate and xenophobia to shocking and unprecedented levels. The people surrounding and advising Donald Trump are the same people we have been warning about and exposing for years now. There was never a doubt that any Republican victory in the presidency would embolden this network of professional and career fear-mongers; Trump’s candidacy was worse than all of them.

This thread is for you to share your reflections and thoughts on the election of an American fascist.
