Mark Steyn: ‘"I’m Pretty Islamed Out, Because I Don’t Have A Lot to Say I Didn’t Say Ten Years Ago"
AOW, MR, and I talk about this all the time. I'm so bored with this subject, and yet it keeps boring into the civilization in which I live. I feel compelled to add something, anything.
From Mark Steyn:
I guess I didn't think this was what my life was going to be like.
You can pretty much carrying on doing all the things you like doing and the only difference is you'll be doing them for your new religion: you can lie, cheat, steal, rape, kill women and children, and as long as you're doing it for Allah and his victory over the infidels it's cool. So we have not just a global terrorist movement and a global political project but a global gang culture insulated within the west's fastest-growing demographic.
A soft culture will, by its very nature, be unlikely to find the strength to stand up to a sustained assault by blunter, cruder forces – like, say, those youths on the Antwerp bus, or the Muslim gang-rapists in France with their preferred rite of passage, the tournante or "take your turn".
In 2001, Paris elected its first openly gay mayor, Bertrand Delanoë, and, as always, this was taken as evidence of how cool and relaxed everyone is about the whole gay thing nowadays. M le Maire certainly worked hard to put the gay in gay Paree... His big idea was the Nuit blanche – the "Sleepless Night" – of October 5th 2002, when the city's landmarks would be open for one big all-night party. Come to the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and if you make it through till dawn there'll be free coffee and croissants...And that's where M Delanoë was, in the thick of the festive throng, when he got stabbed. His assailant missed his aorta by less than an inch, but gamely the Mayor insisted that the party go on while he was taken to the Pitie Salpetriere hospital for a three-hour operation that saved his life.His would-be killer was a Muslim immigrant, Azedine Berkane. But, as the establishment was at pains to emphasize, the good news is that he wasn't a terrorist. No, instead, he's just a Muslim who hates homosexuals.And that's good news how exactly?Le Monde reported from M Berkane's wretched riot-prone ghetto the views of his neighbors: "He was a bit like us," said one. "We're all homophobic here, because it's not natural.""It's against Islam," said another. "Muslim fags don't exist."A traditional terrorist has demands which are in most cases subject to circumstances: He doesn't want your troops on his soil? Okay, we don't really need them there anyway. Buta Muslim who hates you just cuz? That's all but impervious to external pressure.
