A fine YouTube video on Islam

Well folks,  I may have inadvertently offended autistic people in my previous post –  as a matter of fact, it is possible that I suffer from a mild form of autism myself; it’s possible that I have Asperger Syndrome.  But at least if we insult them, they won’t come after us with butcher knives or bombs.
And then there are Muslims – who are known to come after people with butcher knives and bombs for even the mildest insult*.  Anyway, I just found the following excellent video on YouTube.  Enjoy!

      The article doesn’t mention it, but the rape rate in Nordic countries has increased due to immigration.

    • Georgia Resident says:

      I suppose the writers of the article want us to believe, a la Stieg Larsson, that the rapes are being committed by horny Nordic men, rather than immigrants, and that the failure to convict is a result of a deep-seated and hereto unrevealed misogyny in Scandinavian society, rather than a politically correct fear of convicting a negro, Arab, or Somali of rape.

    • One of the unintentionally funny (in a very droll way) parts of that article was the following subtitle:
      Rapes as gender-based discrimination
      As if rape is only deplorable because it qualifies as gender-based discrimination! To be fair to AI, though, the section that it headed would have been better labeled as “Dearth of rape convictions as gender-based discrimination”.
      Nevertheless, this is motivation enough for me to finish up The Last Utopia by Samuel Moyn.

  1. Off-topic:
    I always thought you were the sort of gent who could think like a Aspergian (knowing that the prettiness of a lie doesn’t reduce the BS factor at all) but who also could read people really well (knowing the difference between “vibrancy” and degeneracy). A sort of neurological switch hitter, if you know what I mean.
    So it’s interesting to hear you mention the Asperger connection. I suspect I am little more Aspergian than most people but what I’ve noticed about myself most obviously is my tendency to induce autism in people temporarily and involuntarily. I hear mainstream people using metaphors and hyperbole with each other all the time, but something about my grammar, sentence structure, word choice, or even vocal timbre must be causing people to believe that literally is the absolute only way I can be interpreted.
    I’ll watch the video sometime when there isn’t a sleepy baby on my lap.

    It’s hardly “insensitive” to point out that someone with atrociously poor writing style and grammar could only get his work accepted by a newspaper through what amounts to affirmative action. An autistic white man probably couldn’t submit similar work and have it accepted. There’s nothing magical, anyway, about having a disability that exempts one from criticism for being unqualified for one’s line of work. A blind guy might be a fine fellow, and perfectly bright, but no one in their right mind would think for a second that he should be allowed to become a surgeon. He simply isn’t qualified for such work.
    Similarly, if somebody with autism has such poor language skills that it almost physically hurts to read what he writes, he probably shouldn’t be writing for a newspaper. One could blame the newspaper for publishing his work, of course, and thus opening him up to ridicule, but ultimately they’re just acting in accordance with the incentives put in place by our society. Poor work from blacks is accepted because of an insane commitment to “diversity” in all spheres of life. I’m guessing the Examiner doesn’t have the resources to hire from the top tier of blacks, so the lack of writing skills among their affirmative action hires is more apparent.

      Yes I was being oversensitive, but mainly I was just using that as a segue from my last post to this one. Upon going back and reading what I wrote, you are right. I came across as far too apologetic for something there was no need to be apologetic about. I have modified the post.

    Most religious texts contain something the average person would consider unacceptable. And those things can rear their ugly heads from time to time. But most people would acknowledge those portions as antiquated. The problem is that so many moslems do NOT reject the unacceptable portions of their religion. And they try to use “religious freedom” to undermine reasonable criticisms of those unacceptable portions. To make matters worse, even moderate moslems bristle at any criticism which only serves to provide cover for the radicals among them. Nor am I convinced that such defensiveness isn’t just a deceptive way for some so-called “moderates” to support radicalism while avoiding being labeled as radical themselves.
