As always, Thomas is well worth the read.
Also raid on his home:
2. Just in case the English need a reason to preserve their country and culture…
4. We’re Not the Thought Police
That being said, what are you thinking?
To read Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch website regularly is to get an unsettling daily dose of real-life Islam-related horrors. But on April 4, Robert posted a half-hour audio that was even more disturbing than the bulk of his usual offerings.
The audio records the visit by a couple of British police officers to the home of a British subject who had apparently been reported to the authorities for posting anti-Islam comments on social media. The householder in question greeted the cops with surprising – perhaps nervous? – cheeriness, and for a half hour he earnestly,
willingly, and good-humoredly answered their indefensibly intrusive and insulting questions about his opinions. Among them: What were his political beliefs? What did he think of Islam? Did he hate Muslims? Was he a racist? Was he a Nazi?
It quickly became clear that this man – whose name we never learn, unless I missed something – is anything but a racist or Nazi or hater of any kind. On the contrary, he is a thoughtful citizen who, after considerable study, has come to some sensible conclusions about Islam. He made it clear that, unlike his visitors, he had read the Koran, had acquainted himself with the major specifics of the life of Muhammed, and knew the basics of Islamic theology. He was, it emerged, a strong opponent of Islam for precisely the right reasons, including (as he mentioned) the fact that it commands believers to do harm to infidels, Jews, and gays.
There are, as always, a lot of people to thank today. Xanthippa, Richard, M., Oz-Rita, Ava Lon, who went through all the material on the odd communist conflict with the police in France, and briefed me, and Ill update soon on that, Wrath of Khan, Michelle, Johnny U., and many more I have lost track of,
Thank you all for your vigilance, There will be more tonight.
