If the cautionary tale of what happened to American Indians because of their policy of open borders, unconstrained migration, and absence of a plan to assimilate culturally dissimilar immigrants was not enough (lighten the f*** up Francis, I’m joking), now we have another story fresh from Europe.
The European Court of Human Rights says an Austrian woman’s conviction for calling the prophet of Islam a pedophile didn’t breach her freedom of speech.
The Strasbourg-based ECHR ruled Thursday that Austrian courts had “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected.”
The woman in her late 40s, identified only as E.S., claimed during two public seminars in 2009 that the Prophet Muhammad’s marriage to a young girl was akin to “pedophilia.” A Vienna court convicted her in 2011 of disparaging religious doctrines, ordering her to pay a 480-euro ($547) fine, plus costs. The ruling was later upheld by an Austrian appeals court.
The ECHR said the Austrian court’s decision “served the legitimate aim of preserving religious peace.”
What this bullsh** court has done is allow Islamists to impose upon Europe what the LBGT lobby is trying to impose upon the United States. They have succeeded in making criticism of Islam illegal and, by extension, they have actually outlawed the ability of churches and religious orders to proselytize to Muslims because that, by definition, would include “disparaging religious doctrines.” In fact, it seems like now that blasphemy is a punishable crime in Europe.
Despite denials, it has been documented that there are, in fact, no-go zones in France, Belgium, Sweden, and other European nations where the writ of the government does not run. Making this worse is the fact that many governments, most notably in Britain, are actively siding with a culture that seeks to subvert the existing system of government. In Britain, at least 54 rape grooming gangs are under investigation. In a sane country, this would be a national crisis. In Britain, it is being carried out with a very low profile and one man, Tommy Robinson, was imprisoned for reporting on a trial.
Europe’s underlying problem is that it has lost the will to resist bullying by (for now) ethnic minorities and the (for now) dominant culture doesn’t see any reason why it should continue to resist. When you combine cultural rot with the multicultural fetish and inject several million people who are actively hostile to a pluralistic society, it doesn’t take a particularly astute person to see how the movie ends. European democracy has become a suicide pact in which the rules are weaponized against Europeans by Islamists and Europeans are too effete and self-hating to either defend themselves or to even react. This is not a frog in a pot of slowly boiling water. This is a thoroughly trussed up frog willing jumping straight into the fire.
