Take me out tonight…

I don’t need to rehash the details of the attack, we all know what happened in the Manchester Arena, I don’t have the heart to repeat it. The enemy attack us at our most vulnerable, because they don’t have the stomach for an equal fight. I’ve seen videos of ISIS on the battle field, they couldn’t hit a still target from 10 feet away. They are angst-filled slackers with no skills or achievements. In our culture if you feel an outsider as a teenager, you do what I did, you listen to Nirvana & claim your parents just don’t “understand you.” Extremist lunatics don’t have the same capacity of “phases” it seems.

We know these type of bullies, the small guy in the group who is the most vocal – big in a crowd – but singularly wouldn’t say boo to a goose. Make no bones about it, these men are losers. They have no direction in life. They’ve been sold a lie by their faith that evil is somehow courageous. Just think for a second how miserable & hate-fueled their lives must be to inflict such pain on innocent strangers, all the while knowing they will also certainly die?  I have suffered with depression, spent years hooked on anxiety medication, In and out of Dr’s appointments, hospitals & therapy sessions. During my hardest times (which pale in comparison to the families of the victims) I only ever felt that I wasn’t good enough to exist – but never that others deserved the same treatment. I know how shit my life could be at my lowest point – so my mind boggles at how bad theirs is.

No, I am not claiming they are victims. They are scum. My point is, in life we make choices. People like us don’t act like them, we don’t feel such hate, we don’t attack children. We don’t choose the road they do.

Bigotry of gays, suppression of women, viewing all non-Muslims (and other Muslims who enjoy such “vile” things as Make-up and Music) as enemies.

-They are against free speech because it is used to criticize their holy books.

-They attack children because to them, there is nothing scarier than a young group of kids with the opportunity to learn how to think for themselves; especially girls having the right of education.

-They shoot up cafes because our lives are so fulfilled that we have free time to enjoy the company of others – regardless of differing opinions.

-They hate freedom because it flies in the face of everything they’ve lacked in life.

Some years back I began writing specifically about Islamic terror attacks after I watched a video of around 400 Ahmahdi & Shia Muslims being shot one by one & dumped into a shallow grave. They didn’t resist, they just took a step forward after the man or women in front dropped lifelessly to his/her grave. They truly had no hope, you could see it in their eyes; in all these years, I still remember some of their faces. It reminded me of the Holocaust – I wondered why it wasn’t mainstream news. So I began fighting for these people with my writing, it was a small gesture, maybe more for my benefit but it was something. For a short time I had Muslims applaud my work, until they noticed not only was I standing up for Muslims but admitting the killers were usually also Muslims, albeit more extreme. This made me an Islamophobe, somehow.

I hope one day we will feel safe again; the truth is, we are afraid and we should be – we are under attack because of our way of life, and we for damn sure won’t change that. So in time they will tire, knowing that after every bomb and every bullet people will still stand against them, with love in our hearts & care for the truest forms of humanity we see all around us.

Our way of life gives us strength in days of fear. In New York on September 11th 2001, the peace-loving-people of the world stood still in horror. We cried, we hurt, we tried to understand. The evil power that attacked The World Trade centre seemed enough to supplant any hope for humanity that Americans previously had.
But the very next day, New Yorker’s went to work. They cared for each other like never before. Divides of race & colour seemed to dissipate in the hours after the attack as every one came together as Americans. They aren’t alone, cities around the world have shown this resolve in the face of such hate.

Sadly, it’s Manchester’s time to endure the burden of these murderers. Do you think they will lose hope? Do you believe bombs & bullets can dissolve the thriving community of culture, music and love that is Manchester?

Not a fucking chance.

By the time the next football season comes around, I will go back to pretending Manchester are the adversaries of Scousers in a jovial feud over sport – but today I will admit what I usually wouldn’t dare say. Just like every day before & every day to come – Mancunians are our brothers and sisters, cousins and friends. We don’t need to stand with them, we are them – and therefore will never leave their side.

In our darkest times, we need a light to guide the way, one to walk towards as we shake the fear from our bones. Stupidly these terrorists attacked the wrong city. Did nobody tell them about Manchester? Mancunians could never let terror lead them into darkness, they will always find hope; always find a light to walk towards, and as we all know in that city, there is a light and it never goes out.

 

Rest in peace to the victims & my tearful condolences to their families. As & when the victims are named I will add them below.

Politicians, politicians everywhere.

This will come off as condescending to anyone easily offended, thankfully I left all the care I have for people’s feelings with my ellesse tracksuit & my dreams of marrying a Spice Girl. Normally I blog about religion &  relish the fact I am offending billions of people at once. So it’s a step down just to offend 50% of the youth in the UK, the things I do for you!

I have a small handful of interests, I spend most of my life working, listening to 3-4 podcasts, studying & debating religion, and enjoying politics. I watch films maybe twice a year, TV shows even less. I can watch 20 hours of Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones & right before the big reveal I can put it down & genuinely not care for what I’ve missed. In fact, now working from home, I only turn the TV on when my dad pulls up the drive, as he watches the news. I simply don’t have the same interests as the people around me. I love politics, which gets me in front of the TV! Every week without fail (when parliament is in session) I watch Question Time, This Week, Sunday Politics & PMQ’s. I keep up to date with this more than anyone I know, actually the only person I am aware of that has more interest in this subject is a family member who is a politician himself.

With this, I am aghast at the basic, childish & unintelligent babble I’ve seen on facebook due to BREXIT. I am more appalled at the open bigotry from remain voters. Statements like:

“Old people shouldn’t be allowed to sell our future!”

“OAP’s voted out, but the youth voted in, they aren’t even going to be here to experience the outcome!”

“Anyone who voted out is racist scum.”

These people think they are left wing, yet the first statement denies what he call  a “human right” to vote, the second nearly follows the path of Eugenics. If old people shouldn’t have the human right to vote on issues less important to them (in your opinion) why let them vote at all? They’re gonna die soon anyway, why not kill them now & be done with it? Ah branding all leave voters racist, I bet you hate when all Muslims are branded terrorists… You see the brilliance of these statements, is that they come from people who think they are left wing because they voted Labour, or Liberal or Green, which really, doesn’t mean much anymore. Regressive Leftists, they are known as. People who believe in liberal values until it doesn’t suit them. For example:

“Gays should have equal rights! And women should be free to choose their own way of life. If you disagree you are a misogynistic bigot!”

“But I’m a Muslim & it’s in my holy book & culture.”

“Oh! I’m sorry, I hope I didn’t infringe on your rights, don’t call me an Islamophobe.”

OR

“Everyone should have the vote, even prisoners, it is an human right for all equal citizens! It’s fundamental to our democracy! Wait what? Brexit won? Old people swung the vote? Remove old people from the ballot! This referendum isn’t legally binding. Fuck democracy when it doesn’t suit me. Let’s petition for a new referendum!”

You get the point I hope. If you have thought any of these things, you are more right wing than you are left – you just don’t know it because what used to exist as strict political leanings, doesn’t anymore. The Daily Mail used to be ultra right wing, barely ever told the truth. But if a terrorist attack happens in Time Square, by a man with an ISIS Flag, whilst he screams “Praise be to Allah.” The only paper that will hint at his motive, is the Daily Mail. Which is shocking, it makes me sick that we have let reason fall in the hands of unreasonable outlets.

Here are a few lines I read on facebook, from friends of mine, who are, some of them, highly intelligent.

  1. Without the EU CFP, there won’t be any fish!
  2. Clearly our country has taken to hate & racism.
  3. I’m ashamed at the UK, what have we become? Where is the love.
  4. I don’t care what it says, I will always be European!
  5. The UK is now not the 5th largest economy in the world, France has overtaken us! Nice one Brexit.
  6. Only ISIS, Donald Trump & Putin agree with Leave, you wanna be in that group? pfft.
  7. Liverpool wouldn’t exist without the EU!
  8. EU gives us workers rights, 52 weeks maternity pay & equal pay. If we leave this will all go!
  9. I can’t believe this country is 52% racist. Blaming immigrants for your problems, how smart.

 

And now here is why everyone of them is so, demonstrably idiotic.

  1. There is more than one ocean, even if we over-fish to the point of extinction in EU waters, we would just import from foreign seas. I’m not being over the top, I asked to clarify & this person genuinely told me that fish would cease to exist. Furthermore, the EU sat on its ass whilst they allowed the Mediterranean Sea & others to be fished dry. When 3 top EU nations began to fight over fishing rights due to an impending shortage – the EU stepped in, implementing the CFP (common fishery policy), 40 years too late. They didn’t care before hand.  7.5% of all marine life in EU waters are threatened with extinction. This might sound like a small number to you, but this includes 40% of all Sharks & Reys. The EU didn’t fight for this from day one, it only reformed itself after 40 years of saying “Fuck Off”. It didn’t care for animals or the environment, sound left wing to you? Oh, this is the same way it only reformed itself in favour of the UK when David Cameron told the EU he would hold a referendum if no reform is made – forcing their hand, they took the bait & still gave him 4/5th’s of fuck all. Lastly on this point – the lovely EU also tried to impose austerity on all failing EU states – Just like our Tories – If you forgot about that, ask a Greek.
  2. Our country has not taken to hate and racism. I was a green voting, secular, anti-racist, anti-bigot, liberal & proud grandchild of an immigrant on Thursday before I voted Brexit. On Friday Morning, I was exactly the same.  In the 2015 General Election 44,722,000 were registered to vote. Only 66.1% did so. Which means 29,561,441 people voted. Out of those, only 12.6% voted UKIP (which would be called right-wing, in truth a centre right party, akin to the Tories of the 1960-90’s) The most well known, and truly right-wing, hate mongering party, the British National Party received just 1,667 votes. Yes, we are all racist bastards it seems, even though our only racist party got a measly 0.0037% of the vote. Based on sheer statistics the vast majority of leave voters were Labour & Conservative voters.
  3. Ashamed of the UK? For what you perceive as racism? See point 2. For wanting to have power over our own country, how is that shameful. We have no right to stop convicted rapists,  murderers, thieves or criminals of all stripes walking past our border security providing that they have an EU passport & they are not known to be a risk to the public at this current moment. This is not sound policy. Remember Arnis Zalkalns? The Latvian who served 7 years for murdering his wife? He came to the UK in 2007, he posed no known threat – yano he was only a killer. Well he not only got himself arrested in 2009 on suspicion of indecent assault of a 14 year old, but 5 years later he murdered 14 year old Alice Gross – she lay at the bottom of the River Bent for 5 weeks. Now I don’t believe that foreigners commit more crimes, I understand this is a minority. But this murder & thousands of other sexual assaults & crimes of a lesser nature are utterly preventable, if we have a common sense approach to our safety. You don’t leave your wallet open on the bar & then go for a piss do you? You wouldn’t invite a stranger into your home, but as long as someone has a passport & aren’t screaming “Death to the UK” you find it completely normal for them to enter the country. It is insanity. If all migrants had a 1 week visa application, then we could route out the people we don’t want & welcome with open arms the fine, hard working people who are being tarnished by a minority of criminals. I am not ashamed of the UK, I ashamed of our border security. Where is the love? I don’t see it missing, I still love Europe. I still love Europeans. I just don’t think a failing economic group is any good – furthermore I can’t think of what the fuck it has to do with Love or Europeans.
  4. Yes, shockingly, you are still European, you still get to enter Euro-vision & get to watch the England Football Team fail in the Euros. We didn’t shift on our tectonic plates away to another continent, we literally asked in a referendum to leave a financial trading block, which happens to consist of neighboring countries – that is all. The EU began as an economic trading platform, it then expanded into a bureaucratic entity that diluted democracy from 1 vote in 44 million, to 1 vote in 500 million. I’ve got just as much odds as winning the Euro-millons than having my political grievances heard. 26 other nations with different political views, parties, democratic systems & cultures get to veto on the rest of a continents affairs. In no way does this make any sense. You can’t get your partner to happily agree on a place to eat tonight, but you can get 27 countries to happily agree on foreign policy interests. Good luck. Why should I have a say on Polish policy? Or French policy? How dare I encroach on their sovereignty?
  5. Yes, France overtook the UK as the 5th largest economy in the world… for 15 minutes between 6.20am & 6.35am. By 6.36am Sterling had began to stabalise & we settled back as the 5th largest economy on the planet & the second largest in the EU. Stop pulling your hair out, stop cutting yourself – stop believing whatever bollocks you read on facebook. Yes the £ is still low, but we are now in a better position than before the recession, we actually have 10x our capital just in case & a “save me” fund of £250b. (The fall in sterling has lowered the interest rate on mortgages by 0.5% to 0% & will make exporting cheaper. As long as it doesn’t cause inflation, which we control – we will be laughing.
  6. How you found out ISIS supported Brexit I don’t know. An argument from authority fallacy is saying “I know 2+2=4, but my Math teacher just told me it was 68, so it must be true…” No, although experts have knowledge on a subject, it’s best to use your own reason & check their track record. The majority of the Bankers, financial groups & experts who said Brexit would put the UK into recession were the same ones who drove the globe into a recession that they didn’t see coming. The same experts who thought the Euro would be stable & that when the UK asked not to join the currency warned it would “tank out whole economy”. How did that work out Ireland, Greece, Spain, Italy & France? Two of which went bankrupt, 2 two of which have up to 20% unemployment & over 100% GDP debt. And France, being the most visited nation on earth has had a stagnant economy for several decades. Saying “Donald Trump wants to vote one way, so I must vote the other,” ignores the subject completely. What is the vote on? Hair products & humility? IGNORE HIM. Self love & narcissism – listen up! Just because someone is bad doesn’t mean they are wrong on any or every issue. Hitler may have been a vegetarian, but he was a bad fucking guy. Stalin enjoyed a glass of water – that doesn’t mean you should now refuse water at all costs. Reversing the argument from authority logical fallacy, is a fallacy within itself.
  7. Liverpool wouldn’t exist without the EU? Liverpool was built on the EU? hhmm and there was me thinking it was built on the Atlantic Slave Trade.
  8. The EU gives some workers rights, but equally some of these rights are offered, not guaranteed & can be dismissed by employees if they so choose. The work time directive supposedly stops slave labour by making sure employers INFORM their employees that working over 48 hours a week on average is illegal – that is unless they would like to opt out at any time… I personally worked in a factory near my home, I was one of two English speakers. Hundreds of lovely, hard working polish (& other nationalities) who were in my opinion treated like vermin. I saw a girl around 18 years old with blood dripping from her hands, due to ripping cardboard boxes for 9 hours (with a 15 minute break). She couldn’t speak English, so struggled to ask for gloves, when a colleague helped translate, she was told no. I was also told no. I finished my shift & never went back – sadly those poor immigrants don’t have as many options as I. I sat in my “interview” & watched a superior tick a box opting out of the work time directive for an employee, a Nigerian woman who didn’t speak a word of English & didn’t notice she was just opted into a slave hours contract. She also couldn’t fill her application form, didn’t know how to spell her own name & took 15 minutes to figure out her Date of Birth – I think she lied. This is the great protection that migrants get in EU countries? You hear about it on TV and listen to Labour politicians spout how proud they are about it – but I’ve seen it first hand. And it is disgusting. Oh and maternity rights! they were invented & protected by the EU? WRONG. The EU began in 1958 in an economic sense – Maternity grants were available to British women in 1919. EU law gives women at least 14 weeks maternity leave. The British government gives 52 weeks. This lie was spread on a labour poster by the remain campaign by the way – Why do you think Boris Johnson thought he could lie? Because if it’s good for the goose… If some women voted remain because they actually thought they would lose maternity leave under the Tories – now that is true project fear.
  9. If you think that a majority of your own country are racist, nasty, anti-immigrant, anti-inclusion, small/narrow minded, unintelligent, easily led by lies of the Leave campaign – just because they voted differently to you. Then you need to take a good hard look at yourself.

BIGOT

noun: a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions or beliefs.

You are bigots. I personally believe everyone voted in their own interest & I hoped they were educated enough to do so. Facebook regressive leftists have proven me wrong. I don’t think they all fell victim of project fear, I don’t think they are all unpatriotic or unloving of their country & history. They all, I am sure, had many different reasons why they wanted to remain in the EU – and I bloody well respect them for doing so. I just disagree. But based on the anecdotal evidence of seeing every single post on facebook by remainers – and not seeing one intelligent point for staying other than “They don’t have a plan”. I have to say, I can’t wait until this is over & they can go back to posting statuses about their partners, pictures from holidays, youtube clips & rants like:
“Urgh can’t believe that bitch”
“What happened hun?”
“It’s personal, I’ll inbox you.”

I have visited the top facebook Brexit moaners – I only have to go one week back & they suddenly lose their political fury. In fact 100% (in my investigation) only chat bollocks about politics when  a politician fucks a pig (allegedly) or an election is imminent. Bandwagon wankers.

I dislike UKIP, I hate Nigel Farage & Boris Johnson & Michael Gove. They don’t represent me – anymore than David Cameron, Tony Blair & Anjem Choudary represents you (They all voted remain.

Don’t even get me started on giving 16 year old’s the vote. You must be fucking mad.

How the regressive left fails on Free Speech

In the UK, we have a sharp paradigm of confusion with regards to liberalism and progressiveness. Of recent years our intention to build a fairer society with justice for all has tipped over the edge – landing on the opposite end of the scale. Long gone are the days of widespread racism & misogyny; sadly, instead of being replaced by less racism and less misogyny – we have replaced it with a group of people so afraid they might have offended someone somewhere, that they make sure they call out every sentence ever uttered for the supposed bigotry it is. If you dare say that “All lives matter” instead of just “black lives matter” you are branded racist and publicly harassed – which is odd, as if you said the same thing in 1970’s Britain you would have probably been harassed for saying “black lives matter” at all.

We are now in a state of panic, where asking questions like “Why exactly is Caitlin Jenner brave?” Is enough to get you fired and compared to Hitler by hundreds of thousands on twitter. No one ever seems to take a question as genuine anymore, especially when it is easier to screenshot and throw abuse. Most nowadays misunderstand abuse, they don’t see the difference between hurling abuse, and then hurling abuse at someone for doing the same thing. If someone on twitter claims “all black people are criminals” you would be just as abusive to tweet back a message that degrades him by the colour of his skin. This is hard to explain to the online community. They believe their bigotry is somehow protected as it is used to fight someone else’s. The mind boggles.

This week a 43 year old woman from Bicester, who must have been emotionally affected by the events in Paris took to her company’s facebook page to proclaim the following:

Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not,”

After screenshots & RT’s galore, on top of the barrage of hate-mail and abuse she has undoubtedly received – she has now been arrested after complaints of “racial abuse”. This must remind you of the cake shop in the United States which similarly refused to bake cakes for gays based on religious grounds. Both are as futile and childlike. A few things I have a problem with:

  1. How will she know who is Islamic or not? If they are white and shave the beard she would be none the wiser. The fact she thinks she can spot a Muslim, even though racially they are diverse and normally only recognised by their facial hair – this is the only part where I think the race card can certainly be used. As Islam and Muslim is not, I repeat NOT a race. If you don’t understand that, ask your nearest biologist or pick up a dictionary.
  2. How exactly is she racially abusing? Can a tweet, although utterly stupid, but completely vague and non-targeted to a specific human be counted as such? Other than the underlying idea she can spot one based on appearance does this barely count as racial – but even then it is at a push.
  3. And is it abuse? Genuinely, would this count as abuse?

Maybe it is, who knows. I do know that it is social media suicide, and if her business lasts till next Christmas I will be surprised.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not support this woman. I think she is a fool & also quiet idiotic to think her “stand” will do anything but cause an outcry of hate in her direction, not the support she probably expected. She should have waited a few hours after her anger died down to think twice about such a post. But here is a thought. Why was she arrested? Isn’t the online onslaught she has endured the price she must pay? I would expect so.

In the U.K. we have allowed a man with a child on his shoulders sitting on top of a 5 foot ISIS flag to parade around the streets of London as if it were a normal outfit. He was not arrested by the way. We have accepted the normality of letting actual terrorists like Michael Adebolajo protest on our streets who would end up beheading a British Soldier in Woolwich; terrorist organisations & sympathisers like CAGE who find any way to absolve terrorists and instead blame anything with links to the U.K. or Tony Blair – They claim not to be terrorist friendly, yet are publicly friendly with known terrorists and just seem to agree on about every subject with said terrorists – but I’m splitting hairs. Did I mention these hate groups and hateful people get police protection paid for by the tax payers? Let’s not forget Anjem Choudary who has spent the best part of a decade preaching hate against the U.K. government which just so happens to pay all of his bills and protected him with 24 hour police care. Many U.K. nationals who idolise Choudary then go on to fight in the Middle-East for groups such as ISIS. His links with terrorism are out in the open, his support is unashamed. Yet it took the U.K. over 10 years to arrest him with “encouraging support for terrorism”, but only took 24 hours to arrest a woman for a banal facebook post.

Where exactly do our priorities lay? The police didn’t do this alone, public complaints in the thousands most likely helped, so why were the same “liberals” and “leftists” not petitioning for Choudary’s arrest 10 years ago? Why did it take the U.K. government over 12 years to finally have Abu Qatada extradited to face terror charges (which a corrupt court found to be unsubstantiated) – even though the U.N. and all other experts have evidence of his links to Al Qaeda) but it took the U.K. police no time at all to arrest a women for saying something silly about Muslims in a tweet?

It seems strange to me that I can turn on my TV to watch Muslims using U.K. free speech laws to protest against free speech (Yes, they are that stupid) or catch them with signs like those below

behead_those_who_insult_islam

Yet none of these men are arrested. None of them are outed on facebook or twitter to the hordes of hundreds of thousands of online bullies. This is one of the many ways in which the left fails, not the real left like myself who actually stands for liberal principals, but the newly named “regressive left”.

Are we really saying that an extremist can waltz through our streets expressing his/her interest in bringing chaos and murder to our country, but if an idiot with a social media account says “[Insert derogatory term] + Islam” that we must draw a line for justice?

I stand for free speech, I for one think these extremists should be allowed to protest and spew their hate any day of the week, although without police protection – furthermore I believe if you accept this, you must accept and allow this woman to post her nonsensical message of not serving anyone of the “Islamic faith”. It’s only fair, right?

Freedom of speech works both ways, for messages we adore and ones we abhor – many “leftists” have seemed to completely forgotten about that.

The statistics that no one is willing to accept. And the Holy Book you have never read.

Just over a month ago, on October 1st, I wrote a piece about a Muslim child who was arrested for making a bomb hoax. I made a few important points that I won’t go over now – but I find it right to mention a similar thread which will align here. At the end of the blog I give reasons as to why a school would react in such a way to a Muslim child who had what looked like a bomb in his possession. Let’s not forget his engineer teacher had told him to hide the clock as he thought other teachers may suspect it a bomb, the child ignored this and then refused to answer teachers when the suitcase began to tick. Truth is, no matter what faith, this child would have been arrested. But we cannot ignore the elephant in the room.

In the height of the IRA crisis, it was the norm for call centre operatives to be trained on how to deal with potential bomb threats – especially from Irish callers. Nearly every news story about terrorism or bombs would have been linked to the IRA. But never did you hear the word “Irishaphobia” uttered; never did the news call the organisation “the so called IRA”, nor did anyone ever say in the pub (pre facebook) “stop blaming ALL Irish, it’s only a few bad apples!” or “they aren’t really Irish”

It seems with the IRA we were smart enough to know it wasn’t all of Ireland. We were intellectually honest enough not to invent pointless words like Irishaphobia. Oh how times have changed. The reason why it was a normal reaction to arrest the child, was because in the last decade or so, terrorism has ultimately been monopolised by Muslims. These are not Muslims but terrorists you say? Nonsense. One can be a good Muslim, one can also be a bad Muslim – we don’t go around excommunicating based on bad actions. If a man prays to Allah 5 times a day, and actually lives his life by the ancient scriptures of the Koran and Hadith – of which is the basis of Islamism, Jihadism & fundamentalist Islam – who are we to say he isn’t Muslim enough?

Hitler for example, was a Roman Catholic, his soldiers’ belt buckles read “GOD WITH US” engraved in their native tongue. In fact his book Mein Kampf mentions Jesus and God more than it does his own family. We cannot simply deny his faith because he exterminated generations of innocent humans; no more than we can deny a man of being a “true father” if he beats his children – sure he isn’t a good one, but biology doesn’t change with the PC feelings of the western populous.

Muslims who take care of their fellow neighbours, and raise money for charities are good Muslims who would, in my opinion, be just as good without their holy book. Muslims who marry children or chop the heads of infidels are bad people, but that doesn’t negate the fact that they are still Muslim. Especially when both the actions of marrying children and chopping heads off of infidels are written in black and white inside the Koran (Mohammed married a 6 year old; along with crucifiction and many other actions can decapitation be found)

The main crux is this. I ended the blog with a statement about how most people are blindly walking into a sharp knife, by parading themselves as left wing peace lovers on facebook, who claim every one is perfect, evil doesn’t exist and Islam has no bad passages. The majority of those on my facebook have absolutely no expertise on this subject, and couldn’t distinguish a bible verse from a hadith for a million pounds. Sadly social media has created a platform where all of our baseless and useless thoughts are somehow valued as important. I know nothing of ballet or Opera, thefore would never post a status about it – I do wish the vast majority of the country would stop becoming moral philosophers every time a country is invaded or a terrorists attacks a victim, because 20 statuses later and you still know fuck all about the subject.

Many sheep like humans are now known to post images and memes regarding Koran 5:32 which states:

…Whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind…”

This is beautiful. In truth it is one of the most out of context verses ever used in debate. For one, notice it says “innocent” and not “any” – Do ISIS see us as innocent? Of course not, therefore this verse commands our death by proxy. But what most don’t know, is the very next verse. Which not only takes back the previous one, but explicitly calls for death.

Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth (to cause) corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides of that they be exiled from the land…” – Koran 5:33

I wonder why people on facebook don’t post 5:32 and 5:33 back to back…

When the current leaders of ISIS say “you in the west let women drive and therefore you are at war with Allah” They specifically invoke chapter 5 verse 33 as evidence for justly murdering us. And as we are not innocent in their eyes, chapter 5 verse 32 isn’t applicable. I urge those who did not know of this verse, please stop debating Islam on the internet, as you only make it worse for those who actually understand this topic.

The statistics that no one will post on facebook, and that will get no shares or likes are as follows. In the October piece, up until that point there had been 230 known terrorist attacks worldwide in 2015. I will copy the findings below, to your amazement.

In 2015 alone, there has been a reported 230 “terrorist attacks”.

Attacks carried out by:

Christians: 1

Jews: 2

Unknown/unaffiliated with religious group: 17

Muslims: 210

210 out of 230 = 91.3%

Let that settle in. We keep reading these nonfactual memes that you are more likely to choke on a peanut than be killed by a Muslim radical. Well I don’t see peanuts on the list, but I see it is a hell of a lot safer next to a Jew then a Muslim. These figures do not include the massacre of Paris Friday 13th – so the 91.3% figure will have surely risen.

Are you ready to be reasonable and talk about the influence that not only religion but belief has on a human’s actions?

Are you ready to morally accept that the more you lie on facebook about how everyone wants to get a long that you are letting a radical ideology take over the world you say you hold sacred? Unless we accept these findings, we cannot begin to counter them.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but 91.3% of terrorism worldwide from January 1st 2015 to October 1st 2015 was carried out by Muslims only.

Think it over.

Rest in peace to all of our fallen friends in Paris; and for moral relativism, for all deaths at the hands of fanatics, especially Muslims in the Middle East and Central Africa who bear the brunt of Jihadism.

Freedom to discriminate

Freedom of/from religion was a beautiful idea, supposed to rid the world of idiotic shamanism and inspire scepticism, or at best a move towards deism.

Sadly, the beauty of an idea is only as great as its safeguards. None of which were put in place; therefore freedom of religion or non-religion led to privatised preaching. The uneducated were sold lies by richer charlatans who not only had freedom to say whatever bigoted or outdated thing they professed to believe, but had tax incentives to boot. The hole left by deregulation was filled by the very thing the country stood against. Now the U.S. is arguably one of the most religious countries in the world. Regarding deregulation you only need to look at the banking crisis of recent years; the free reign of children for priests in the church; the misuse of billions by right-wing Christians in the U.S. taken from pious believers ; All of this possible when regulatory powers are taken away from higher bodies.

This recent misuse of freedom has resulted in anti-gay laws in the U.S. Obviously nothing new, the U.S. has always had some sort of anti-homosexual tendencies, from the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ armed forces attitude, to the mental disorder diagnosed to gays in the U.S. until 1974; truly disgusting.

These laws are different; in Indiana (and other states that have began to follow suit) companies are placing signs in their front windows proclaiming ‘No admission to Gays’, ‘No Gays allowed’, or my favourite of the bunch – a rainbow symbolising the LGBT community with a red X through it. (who puts an X through a rainbow? I mean really?)

Of course, the law is named ‘Religious Freedom Restoration act’; to put it mildly, having the “freedom” to refuse queers is a symbol of a broken society – and america is a broken society. The Nazi’s had plaques to refuse Jews; not too long ago the U.S. had plaques to refuse coloreds and now the same for gays. In one respect the Jewish statement diverts, as to be of Jewish ancestry is hardly a choice, although to practise is; in any event to cast away a part of society for something they are unable to “fix” is diabolical. Blacks can’t help that they are beautiful, and Gays cannot help that they are fabulous, they just are.

How can the soil where we planted the greatest seed of human integrity, be defiled by the cruel footprints of segregation – yet again!

I have the freedom to swing my arm, but that freedom only extents to a few inches from someone else’s face – I cannot overstep that boundary. Your freedom of religion is yours to cherish, and ends right before it discriminates another human being. This law is not freedom but clear discrimination. Not only is it bad for business, but it’s bad for humanity.

I can, and have, mocked the undoubted disgusting beliefs of middle-eastern faiths (all of them); I can do this on the basis that I am morally superior to them in every single way. I do not hate by the colour of someone’s skin, I do not kill due to the “sect” someone is born to, this gives me the moral high-ground. Slowly but surely the United States has lost its moral high-ground. No more can they throw stones at the middle east and say “look at those barbaric people” as long as a man or woman can be publicly abused by their fellow neighbours for their sexual orientation, all because of a book of laughable tales of genocide and incest. As long as these laws exist, you are no different to those you point the finger at. You shout “look at the hatred Mohammed has given them” they shout back “look at the nastiness of those who follow Jesus”, when both of you need to look at yourselves in disgust.

Not only do these laws need to be tackled but regulations need to be enforced to stop them from arising again. There must be an education given regarding the different between free speech and hate speech, freedom and discrimination.

The people in certain states stand behind nonsense of the sort due to indoctrination, home-schooling, faith schools & acceptance open bigotry, even on the political spectrum. Educating these inbreeds would be a great start to achieving equality; so let’s start there!

Let us then ask the bible belt of america to explain why they are so vehemently against gays, yet they watch the most gay pornography of any of the states! A massive majority of these anti-gay half-wits are viewing gay porn regularly on an unprecedented scale, so let’s ask them about it! (start with the preachers)

On a serious note, I can’t imagine what it would be like to wake up tomorrow and be gay, or black for that matter. It horrifies me to say, I would be completely anxious of the world I would have to face; I hate that others have to live this existence.

If you live in America, please boycott these business, you may miss your favourite burger house – but your morality and integrity depends on it. Please write to your local representatives and be counted as one who opposes this bigotry. If given the opportunity, try and make someone else’s life better by letting them know how you feel.

It costs you nothing to walk up to a gay couple who have been turned away and give some kind words “If you can’t eat here, nor will my family – we are with you”. A few words could change the outlook of someone utterly humiliated and depressed.

Please make sure you make your voice heard, because the freedoms of ordinary humans, and the honour of your country is in the balance. Black children in the U.S.A can look at their president and say “I can achieve that”, what hope do gays have until they can say the same?
