Wisdom from the Realm

Is it Backlash or Self-Preservation

with 10 comments

Recently a Muslim woman was being interviewed on a cable news channel where she began expressing her concern and fear of the growing backlash against Muslims. She stated, “People stare at me every time that I fly. I see the intolerance in their eyes as they wonder if I am a terrorist. I am being discriminated against because they don’t understand Islam.”

You can well imagine my surprise at the claim of “looking” at someone now constitutes intolerance and discrimination. I submit that given the climate we find ourselves that the actions of fellow passengers have more to do with fear of the unknown than anything else. You certainly can’t blame them for being suspicious and displaying a natural instinct for not wanting to become engulfed in a fireball dropping from the sky.

In fact one could easily make the case that the actions of radical Muslims create distrust toward all Muslims. You have the past attacks of course, but what about those that are presently testing the system? I believe probing for weakness is the proper term. You must ask why is this happening if sinister motives are not in play. Now I realize that not all Muslims are terrorist, but one can’t exclude the fact that 99.9% of terrorist are Muslim. So why wouldn’t anyone boarding a plane tend to take a second look at their fellow passengers.

It was very telling that she inserted PC code words like “intolerance” and “discriminated against” into her complaint. However I did find her statement about not understanding Islam to be truthful. It is difficult to understand a religion that teaches the way to heaven is to become a martyr. You have Muslim leaders that preach hate to the point where followers will strap on a bomb belt and detonate themselves in order to kill anyone that happens to be passing by. There is the professed belief of Islam of death to all that are not Muslim. The goal of raising Islam as the only religion and to kill or make slaves of those that don’t submit. Yes, it is easy to see what a wonderful religion Islam is and how it is worthy of tolerance and non-discrimination.

In order to survive the west must first conquer its own demon. Political correctness has engulfed the land like a plague and is being used as a weakness to be exploited. It keeps people from seeing things for what they really are and not acting when action is required. It shades with the illusion of safety when all the walls are falling around. Time is growing short, but not so much if enough in the west can find the strength and courage to rip away the blinders that is political correctness.

On your quest for wisdom you must understand that not recognizing danger doesn’t mean that it isn’t at the doorstep. You can view situations for what they are then take the appropriate actions or you can fool yourself until it is too late. If you choose the second don’t be surprised that your national tombstone will one day read, “They died as a nation, but they were politically correct.”

  1. Hi.

    I’m pretty sure this woman would know whether or not people were looking at her in a certain way and exactly what they were thinking.
    Ever heard of womans intuition? Geeez.

    Also, calling the words tolerance and discrimination “code words” shows just how out of touch you are with the plight of the downtrodden and minorities in America and there are a bunch.
    There are still plenty of us out here, though not all are out, and we maintain a vigilance for any ill treatment of our fellow victims like you wouldn’t believe. Personally, im offended several times a day. You wouldn’t understand because your an insensitive brute.

    Your insulting rhetoric regarding Muslim people in general and Islamist freedom fighters in particular enrages me. As usual, you throw the baby out with the bathwater when you lump all Muslim people, basically sweet and gentle soul’s in with the ideological/military wing of this lovely religion. More blind prejudice.
    Don’t you ever watch Oprah???

    Finally, in your ad hominem attacks on perhaps the greatest tenet of modern education and life in America, political correctness, you once again tread upon the freedoms our forefathers fought and died for.
    Where in the constitution does it say you have the right to offend someone? Huh?? Except for that first amendment thingy, where does it say you can just blurt out your opinion no matter who might hear you?? Sheesh.

    Oh, and another thing buster: For your information, some of us prefer to live in our own little safe zones, away from troublesome detail’s about the outside world. So have some respect and quit trying to jam your version of reality down our throats.

    Welcome to the Realm – you amuse me.

    Nice rant, but your response sadly proves that my assessment of the situation is right on target.

  3. Hey.
    Yeah, i’m a frustrated writer and this subject is something I read and study about almost daily.

    The idea was to, in the most whiney, bitchy way I could muster, recreate just some of the nonsense I read around here.

    Thanks for the post and I hope someone was reading along.

    Nothing wrong with little passion when you write.

    Perhaps I should clarify one point and that is I was not referring to the gentle soul Muslims, but those that are trying to kill us. The problem for the west is that few if any Muslims will speak up and condemn the actions of the militant Muslims. It would be easier to distinguish the difference it there wasn’t this roaring wall of silence.

  5. Hi LC,

    great post. I was going to add a rant, but, shucks, I’m about ranted out for one day.

    icanplainlysee,

    you had me up to the part where you spoke nicely about Oprah 😉

    Now, if y’all want a real chuckle along these lines, and I must warn you to hit the can before following this link, else you’ll need to change your shorts, take a gander at:

    Go for it, there’s nothing wrong with a well thought out rant.

    I went to the site you suggested and may I say… well I don’t know what to say. It’s one of those places that brings out every type of emotion, but in a creepy sort of way. Your warning was well founded.

  8. Hi Grit

    Now that would be a hoot. Maybe we could get icanplainlysee to direct it. That would be quite an eye opener for our liberal friend.

  9. You can’t deny that there has been an increase verbal and physical harassment of Muslims or those assumed to be Muslim. Its true and has been perpetrated by the hostile views beiung expressed by rightwing crazies trying to scare us into believing that all Muslim are IED welding terrorists in waiting. In reality most are just mothers wanting their children to grow healthy and happy, fathers working to provide for their families and kids trying to get an education that will lead to the American Dream.

    Stop being so suspicious all the time. It will save you money on anxiety and heart meds.
