ABC indulges in a little Reductio ad absurdum when it tries to ‘expose’ the EDL

ABC news last night broadcasted a segment on the EDL with what looks like quite a bit of older footage and which was clearly intended to use Islamic extremists as part of the intellectual shell game of reductio ad absurdum. At least the politically correct version of it.

The scam goes like this:

Yes, there are some muslim extremists who are very distasteful and probably should be ignored with a stiff upper lip but people who oppose them and defend their own thousands of year old culture, heritage, history and legal system must therefore be at least as extreme and at least as big a threat to whatever it is the ideal norm is meant to be.

Notice that the reporter takes every possible opportunity to prove Robinson wrong on the exceptions rather than consider the general truth of anything he says. Her treatment could equally apply to Jews resisting Nazi attempts to obliterate them or any group, for that matter, who wishes to defend the status quo from a hostile invader. ‘If you are fighting a group, you must be the opposite and therefore as bad’

Still, I have to give credit to ABC for showing some of the activities of muslim activists in the UK. It was more than I expected from them. Especially as it was a muslim reporter. I think she was genuinely shocked by what she saw from Muslims in the UK. This likely means she has chosen not to look at what her coreligionists do however, or what her religion in fact demands of its followers.

Below appears to be a related video, possibly a part of the same documentary.

  1. Sheffield man Aras Hussein guilty of beheading girlfriend (BBC, Apr 17, 2014)

    A man who beheaded his teenage girlfriend with a kitchen knife has been found guilty of her murder. Pizza delivery driver Aras Hussein decapitated 18-year-old student Reema Ramzan at his flat in Sheffield in June before stabbing himself in the chest.

    The 21-year-old was jailed for life at Sheffield Crown Court and ordered to serve a minimum term of 20 years. Hussein admitted killing Miss Ramzan, but he denied murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

    The body of Miss Ramzan was discovered in the kitchen of Hussein’s flat in Herries Road on 4 June. Police had been called to the address after a passer-by saw Hussein walking in the road naked and covered in blood. Miss Ramzan had been stabbed in the chest and decapitated….”

  2. Before Tommy pleaded guilty to mortgage fraud (to prevent his dying mother being dragged through the courts for his political views), he told me
    a) that a UK TV channel had spent about 6 to 9 months with him on an almost daily basis, making a documentary about him and EDL.
    b) on the basis of this documentary, an American TV company was also going to make a documentary using the same team.
    My guess is that this footage is from that documentary. I have never seen this footage before, and I think I’ve seen almost everything with Tommy in it.

    Strangely, the UK TV channel has never broadcast the documentary. I know they bought the rights to it. The documentary was completed by the end of summer 2013.
