This article from The Gates of Vienna, and it cuts to the heart of so much of the issue. How leftism, and political correctness really are snakes that eat their own tails. People call Geert Wilders, “Far right wing” attempting to link him to Nazis and racists as popular myth makes them right wing somehow. But Geert has been vocally defending the rights of people like the ones in the article below, as well as many other minority groups who, up until the ascendancy of Islam in the Netherlands, nearly defined Dutch liberalism and now are in full retreat in some areas.
Eeyore for Vlad
The Netherlands has long been in the forefront of tolerance and support for the rights of gay people. With its institution of homosexual marriage and widespread public disapproval of gay-hatred, the Dutch have led the way for the rest of Western culture.
In recent years the cultural enrichment of major Dutch cities has caused an upsurge of violence against gays by Muslim immigrants. This trend — which has become too large to ignore completely — highlights one of the major contradictions of politically correct Multiculturalism.
According to Multiculturalism, the culture of “brown people” is above criticism. Any negative observation about their behavior is evidence of “xenophobia”, and also “Islamophobia” if they are Muslims.
According to Political Correctness, any hostility towards gays is evidence of “homophobia”.
So what happens when Muslims attack gays? Which doctrine holds the trump card?
Well, we all know the answer to that one by now — tolerance of Islam trumps everything else. Gay rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, the rights of Jews or Hindus — all are cast aside when they come into conflict with the accommodation of Islam.
Because of the cognitive dissonance induced by this contradiction, the issue of Muslim gay-hatred is generally ignored in the media. Stories of Muslim violence against homosexuals are excluded, or disguised by omitting a full description of the perpetrators. The problem is swept under the rug as much as possible.
Sometimes, however, the incidents become to egregious or too numerous to avoid, and pop up in the press. One such story was published today by NIS News:
Harassed Gay Couple Taking Police to Court
Utrecht — A homosexual couple is demanding damages from the government because the police allegedly refused to take action against Moroccan youths who systematically threatened them.
The men suffered multiple harassments. For example, their car windows were broken, ‘homo’ was scratched on the car and a brick and fireworks were thrown at their window. The couple made a police report for all these matters, but the police never took any action, says their lawyer Yehudi Moszkowicz.
