Is criticising Islam racist? Let’s ask the experts
There is a meme wandering around the place that attacks on Islam are just disguised racism. Now I’ve written about this before, but there is nothing like calling in some real experts. Namely, some proper, unashamed racists. Namely the following chuckleheads whom I cited earlier. These are the people who compare Nelson Mandela with Anders Behring Breivik, and to recirculate the work of Lothrop Stoddard. The line this crowd they take the problem with Islam isn’t Islam, it’s that comes with foreigners with lower IQs that mooch off the welfare state. They also endorse the Patrick Buchanan line that Jihad wouldn’t exist if the US wasn’t in the Middle East.
Incidentally, take a look where that second link is hosted.
This brings me to my point: it is not anti-Jihad that is racism, it is Jihad-denialism that is racism. Racism places biology above ideology. Racists are incapable of believing in the idea that someone has an independent mind and can think for himself – all thinking must be the ultimate product of a collective of ancestors.
