Hirsi Ali Gets Outraged At Just The Mention of Donald Trump
From Law of Markets:
We went to see Ayaan Hirsi Ali tonight. And the only reason I asked a question was because my sciatica meant I couldn’t sit for too long so got up and stood in the queue among those with something to ask. And when my turn came, my question was this:
What advice would you give a President Donald Trump?
That was not a gotcha question. She is worried about Muslim immigration. Trump is worried about Muslim immigration. So it seemed natural to ask her what advice she would give him.
This is what happened next, as I reprint the text from the note I wrote on my iPhone to a friend on the trainride home.
She went all outraged about how awful he is and gets palpitations thinking of him with his finger on the bomb. And about what a misogynist he is. So I repeated my question about what advice she would give. Same answer. She was more filled with anger at Trump than at jihad! So discouraging.
The title of her presentations, as you can see, was “Dilemmas for Liberal Society: Security & Jihad in a World of Mass Migration”. Only a percentage of us even see the issue as genuine, yet as she said right at the start, it is “the challenge of our time”.
I was asking what advice she might have for the next president. As my wife said after, perhaps I should have asked what advice she would give Hillary since even the mention of Trump put her completely off her stride.
I will dwell on this for a while because it spoilt my night.
To quote Kant once again: if you would will the end you must will the means. I find the ends she has in mind quite obscure after all this, but how she would achieve whatever ends she intends is now completely opaque.So, we have a situation here where "Counter-Jihadists", people who oppose the Islamization of the Western World, are asking for something to be done about Islam.
After 15 years of writing, protesting, and being spit on, we finally have a leader in the Western World, poised to take the most powerful job, leader of the Free World, and many "Counter-Jihadists" find they simply can not support him.
This makes me wonder if, perhaps, these "Counter-Jihadists" have other priorities they have not named.
Donald Trump is not a Nazi, a racist, or a Fascist. He is not a Jew-hater. He does not hate Homosexuals. He does not hate women. He employs them. He employs all of the above. These people like him. They say he's a good man.
I really don't know what to say. It is beyond my comprehension.
I am certainly not going to start trying to argue against something I don't understand. I'd have to make up their counter-arguments for them.
My hunch is, as time passes, many of these people are going to get over their ego-driven animosity, and settle down and start behaving like adults. And they will come to support them first Western leader who is willing to actually do something about Islam.
Or perhaps not.
Maybe the Western World really is ready to destroy itself.
MEANWHILE, the writer known as "Spengler" says he doesn't like Trump either ... BUT:
I don’t like him and find his vulgarity objectionable and his insulting remarks about Mexicans (for example) deplorable. The mother of my children is Mexican, and I take this sort of thing personally. If I ever have the opportunity I will give Trump a black eye.
But there’s a war on–three different wars, in fact. To remain neutral is moral cowardice; to choose the wrong side would be downright wicked.Even that allusion to Mexicans is evidence of a pussy of the highest grade. Trump does not hate Mexicans. He hates when people break the fucking law.
God damn it, how fucking stupid are these people.
But at least Spengler, as a complete pussy, knows full well he's not going to use his faggot-ass to win the fucking war, so he'd better get himself someone to beat up the bully who is tormenting him.
In other words, TRUMP!
