In his latest islam eviscerating rant, Pat Condell (once again) nails islam to the wall of reality:
Jyllands-Posten's mohammed cartoons (Denmark)
Well, once again we see multiple violent tantrums from the religion of permanent offense. Some things never change do they. Once again we see Islam self-detonate, if you’ll pardon the expression. And show once again why it is about as welcome on this planet as an asteroid. Once again we see thousands of islamic nut cases take time out from beating their wives to show their sensitive side. How? By smashing up the towns they live in egged by clerical ignoramus’ whose motives are even lower than the literacy level of their followers. And, once again, we in the civilized world are being urged to censor ourselves out of respect for a religion that violates the human rights of half the people on the planet. And doubles as a political ideology indistinguishable from Nazism. It would be funny if it wasn’t so obscene. Or, should that be the other way around?
Lars Vilks' mohammed dog (Sweden)
To call these riots infantile and imbecilic, is to give them a dignity they don’t deserve. They can only be described as islamic. Let me get this straight. We’re supposed to show tolerance and respect for a religion that doesn’t know the meaning for either word. And goes out of it’s way to prove it every day. We’re supposed to amend our values to accommodate a religion that accommodates nothing and nobody. Dream on people. It’s not going to happen.
Because with Islam it’s always a one-way street. We’ve learned that lesson the hard way. We can not afford any more tolerance and respect, we’ve been sucked dry. And we’ve become weary of manufactured grievance. It’s such a bore that now when we hear some bearded buffoon or some bag headed bimbo telling us how offended they are, we can’t even be bothered to laugh any more.
Not even when the Turkish prime minister hilariously demands that islamophobia now be made a crime against humanity. When given the evidence, there is a much stronger case for making islam a crime against humanity. Besides Turkey is already hypocritically guilty of one of the worst crimes against humanity in history –the Armenian genocide. A crime it doesn’t even have the balls to admit to.
Theo Van Gogh's 'Submission' (Netherlands)
When muslims start showing the same level of outrage about things that are genuinely offensive like the thousands of women and girls who are murdered, mutilated and raped every year in their countries, then we might take them a bit more seriously. As it is, there is nothing on this planet less than deserving of sympathy or respect than muslim outrage. Indeed there is something deeply comical about it. It’s so contrived and so cringingly unselfaware, that it’s impossible to take seriously even if we wanted to. And nobody in their right mind wants to any more.
Geert Wilder's 'Fitna' (Netherlands)
There was a time when islam was given the benefit of the doubt by many people in the west, but now we think it’s poison and we wish we’d never heard of it. Because twenty years of baseless grievance mongering and knee jerk offense has shown us this religion for what it really is. And now we don’t like it, we don’t trust it, and we are never going to respect it. And we don’t care how muslims feel about it. Everything’s an insult to this religion. Everything causes offense. Well, nobody gives a damn anymore people. You’ve done it to death. You’ve killed the goose that laid the golden egg. So now if you are an offended muslim, go stick your head in the oven for all we care.
Terry Jones quran burning (United States)
And if you think that if you keep up the violence, the west will eventually cave in, it’s not gonna happen. Even if the politicians want it to, the people won’t allow it. We’ll carry on speaking our minds openly and freely, because it’s our birthright and it can’t be taken away from us. It could only be given away and we are giving islam nothing, because islam gives us nothing. It’s a religion permanently on the take. Gimme, gimme, gimme, is all we ever hear. Give me respect even though I haven’t earned it. Give me special treatment or I will be offended and you will be a racist. Well, we are sick and tired of hearing it. We are sick and tired of islam. And we are sick and tired of the needless conflict and intimidation, that comes from this religion at every turn.
'Innocence of Muslims' (United States)
All week we’ve heard muslims telling us that we in the west need to understand how important the [their -ed.] prophet is to them. We do understand, and we don’t care. That’s the point. We don’t care now and we are never going to care. Get used to it. We don’t give a damn about your feelings. Our feelings are more important. Our feelings tell us that we are sick to the back teeth of hearing about your religion, so stick a sock in it. And no amount of violence is going to change a thing.
Charlie Hebdo's mohammed cartoons (France)
The more you riot and scream and shout, the less we are going to listen. You’ll simply stiffen our resolve not to be bullied and pushed around, by a people whose values we don’t respect. Because you’ve given us no reason to respect them. And more to the point because you are incapable of giving us such a reason.
In short, we will not be told what we can and can not say.
Not by you. Not by anybody. Not now, not ever.
No matter how many flags you burn. No matter how many embassies you attack.
Free Speech will prevail. And you’ll suck it up and like it.
