ISLAMOPHOBIA

A phobia is an irrational fear. Rationally speaking out against a principle or idea one is opposed to is not a phobia.

- One may support democracy therefore oppose the theocratic rule which Sharia demands and Muslim countries end up with.

- One may believe women are equal to men and therefore oppose the idea that women are second class citizens which is at the core of Islam.

- One may believe in freedom of and from religion, and therefore oppose any system where apostasy earns a death sentence.

Thus one may oppose Islamist ideology, logically and without any 'phobia' at all.

Islamophobia is a meaningless word and often a slanderous and misleading accusation used in forms of communication reminiscent of Goebellian propaganda. One may calmly and rationally oppose any and all belief systems which by doctrine declare open war on democracy, gender equality, gays, apostates and unbelievers. That is no phobia. That is rational opposition to an offensive idea utilizing reason, logic and rhetoric.

Trump talked to a Russian, all is lost. Goodbye cruel world.

Is that a metaphor of American sovereignty jumping out of the window to a suicidal death because of the Putin- directed criminal hacking of the American presidential election by the Russians?

Or is that an actual traitor against the United States committing suicide because he helped the Russians to hack the presidential election-- thereby hacking American Democracy.

Fear of treason and the decimation of the national security has nothing to do with a phobia - -

It has more to do with patriotism and concern for the survival of American democracy.

Boy you Trump followers sure do like to just tune out anything you don't like even if future national security is at stake. Even now with Don Jr. admitting he had a meeting with a Russian lawyer who had relations with their government - just a lot of silence from you Trumpsters here. Much ado about nothing, you like to pretend.

 

Pathetic.

The sheer amount of these threads are withering ... most retrograde to any sense of restraint.

Yep Sepia. As our moderator here has just explained to you, well sort of anyway, I don't believe it was your well-reasoned and thoughtful post in that "Michigan/Shiria law" thread which has caused its disappearance. Nope, I believe it was probably the one preceding it in which some Canadian who seems to be under the illusion that he's"the smarted guy in the room" posited the idea that Islam is "not a true religion" and then went on another of his intolerant and hate-filled rants.

 

But of course, our moderator didn't come right out and say this to you here, and which maybe he or she SHOULD HAVE!!!

 

(...hell, for THAT matter, I was surprised the aforementioned Canadian was/is still even communicating directly with you...he doesn't like to be contradicted, ya know)

To make correction and be more accurate, I took a half hour to carefully type and articulate a fact filled reply to the newest of Dark's Islamaphobic threads titled something like, "Michigan fights back...yadda, yadda" that contained two "homemade"(looked to be)    "news" clips that discussed, with a computer generated voice-over, events and incidents that never really took place in Dearborn, MI or anywhere ELSE in the state,  and claiming things like a 103,000 Muslim populatin in that city represented a "takeover" by Islam of the place.  Indeed, I pointed out that 103,000 only represented LESS than 1/3 of Dearborn's total population.  AND that there's BEEN some level of Islamic population in Dearborn since the late '40's with no complaints or other issues held by it's residents.

 

But after all that typing, I hit "post" and then was informed that I was "not allowed" to reply to that topic!

I'm glad to see that the moderator stepped in to remove Dark's hate thread that was blatantly racist in nature.

 

It won't prevent those kinds of threads from returning, though. In fact Dark immediately responded by trying to resurrect the topic in another thread (he's nothing if not aggressive in his hatreds) but the mods have taken care of that one, too.

 

I have never lodged a complain against either a thread or a poster. These kinds of threads though, vile as they are, are the closest I've come to doing it.

 

I just hope the moderators continue to keep an eye open for them, and will blow them off the site.

 

It is a shame, though, as Sepia pointed out, that reasoned arguments against the bigotry get eliminated along with the hatred expressed towards a minority.

But you see,----

 

The thread I'm "not allowed" to reply on is one that's SPREADING the "religious intolerance".

  All of MY relies that ever got entered were in opposition to the stated content.

 

Sepiatone

 

You could always put your response in Jake's 'Trumpism in Europe' thread which is only yet another not-so-thinly veiled thread about racial hatred toward Muslims.  Posting racist videos without personal comments attached is still promoting racial hatred.  I would be happy to see all that *** go, thank you very much.

That is correct. Any content that violates the Coc mentioned previously will be removed, and therefore unavailable for comment, regardless of opinion.

I've discovered I'm "not allowed" (?) to reply to Darkblue's latest faux filled Islamaphobic thread.

 

Interesting.   That the Mods would subscribe to the idea of not wishing those threads full of provocative prevarications be sullied by truth speaks volumes of the Moderator's mind sets.

 

I defy!  I defy!  ANY Moderator to tell me they're NOT buying into these canards!  Otherwise, WHY then the prohibition?
