The new normal of course is to avoid, spin or reformat any real world events that cause one to doubt the Marxist-muslim narrative, and exaggerate fictions which promote it. The Trump-Russia story, well I don’t need to say more about that to anyone actually paying attention.
But now and again there is a story with massive importance which just sort of sits there.
Actually every day. And here is one of them:
Indonesian prosecutors have demanded an 18-month prison term for a woman who was charged with blasphemy after she complained about the volume of a mosque’s loudspeakers.
The ethnic Chinese defendant, Meiliana, 44, was arrested on May 18, about two years after her case triggered a riot in Tanjung Balai, a port town in North Sumatra province.
A spokesman at the local prosecutor’s office, Sumanggar Siagian, said Tuesday the sentencing demand for Meiliana was made at the District Court in Medan, the province’s capital, on Monday.
Prosecutors said the defendant had violated Indonesia’s criminal code by committing blasphemy against Islam, the dominant faith in Indonesia.
So in moderate Indonesia, simply complaining about the excessive volume of a minaret which blasts its hate of unbelievers, morning, noon and night, is now the crime of blasphemy. She is lucky she isn’t getting the death sentence. But clearly according to sharia she could. Its just a matter of the other meaning of “Hijra”, the increased degree of islamic adherence in a given area.
This part of Indonesia is now so islamic that complaining about the volume of a minaret is blasphemy. This is no more ludicrous, less actually, than the charge of blasphemy itself.
But it isn’t so islamic that this form of blasphemy should be met with death just yet. But anyone who thinks it won’t be in the future is in denial of the trajectory of Islamic rule in Indonesia, and frankly, everywhere else in the world except maybe the Far East.
This is on a rhumb line with M103 as one example. With very little steering we will get to that level of adherence. In some ways we are already there as complaining about increased islamification and any inconvenience and loss of equality before the law, already gets charges of “islamophobia” levelled at you.
In England not that long ago, muslims gained the rational right to bring halal food to school with them. Then, they demanded that halal food be available at schools. Then pork could not be available at schools, even though its a British staple. Then all food at schools had to be halal so that muslim kids could not be “poisoned” with non halal. You know, like peanut butter in case kids trade food with someone fatally allergic.
Then, kids started getting sent home if they brought non-halal food with them to school.
(I cannot find the link about the child who was sent home from school for bringing a non-halal lunch to a public school, but this will do for the moment)
So you can see, the slippery slope argument is not only valid, its not only proven along multiple vectors from secular or Western to Islamic, but at dizzying speeds in terms of change to a once functional civilization.
This is an important story. And should be watched, and people should complain to news agencies that it is not major news. Because it is the future, if it is not actually the present with a leftist disguise on it.
