That’s how it works. Add enough Farhans together and suddenly the system operates on a different set of assumptions that signify that the clash of civilizations has happened, and civilization has lost.
For decades now, the civil rights movements have been dedicated to taking away other people’s rights in the name of entitlement. That has brought us to a state of affairs in which religious institutions are obligated to cover abortions, white students are seated at the back of the college admissions bus behind black students, and wedding photographers are sued for not wanting to shoot gay weddings. This is not a society that frees people from oppression, it’s a society that oppresses everyone in the name of someone else’s greater good.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s arms in America operate as civil rights groups, and Islamization is a civil rights movement, as much as any of them. Like them, it believes in taking away the right of other people to be left alone, to live and let live and to be treated equally under the law. Like every radical group it is demanding the right not to be investigated by the police, the right not to have its ideology treated as the contemptuously vicious creed that it is, under the “Red-Baiting” or “Islamophobia” clause, and the right to aspire to one day take away everyone else’s rights.
There are police forces in the Muslim world, but they’re tasked with arresting blasphemers, jailing runaway brides and conducting virginity tests on women found alone in the same room with a man. And occasionally hanging the homosexuals, who as Messr Ahmadinejad assured us don’t exist, because as soon as they exist, they are killed, resolving the paradoxes of Islamic morality and Schrodinger’s cat in one instant.
The difference between their forces and ours is… Farhan Doe.
