When Dave Rubin asked Milo Yannopoulos whether he made the distinction between the Islamist terrorists and the nominal Muslims who don’t take their religion literally and are the “normal”, peaceful ones, Milo answered clearly that he does not make and does not care for that distinction (3:29):
“No, I don’t care too much for that distinction. It is not extremists, it’s not radical Islamists that the Security Service are worried about that are the problem. The problem is the silent majority of Muslims who do nothing in this situation, who have no peace movement, no resistance to their own extremist elements.”
Not all Muslims are terrorists, but those who are, are defended and protected by other Muslims. Their acts are never condemned, they’re actually encouraged, promoted and praised by their religion/culture. And even if there were only a few who commit horrible crimes, it’s impossible to tell them apart from those who don’t. We’ve seen it before, the “normal” ones becoming radicalized – even if they had been welcomed by the West generations before – and eventually turned out deadly. Even if there are only a few terrorists, the damage they inflict is huge and since you can’t tell them apart from the alleged peaceful ones, are we going to keep taking the risk? If you had a bag of M&Ms and a few of them were poisonous, would you eat them?
There is a distinction between peaceful Muslims and terrorist Muslims, but a time may come when such distinction may no longer matter. For some, that time has already arrived. I know it has for me. But at the same time, I have found myself making the same distinction when it comes to “normal” women and the dangerous/evil ones. I know that not all women are feminists or monsters, just like I know not all Muslims are killers. But I think in both cases, the distinction is starting to become obsolete and irrelevant, and too dangerous to be carried on. Women don’t blow things up, but they are dangerous, both to others and themselves: they can falsely accuse you, take your kids/money/reputation/career away, they can use the law/courts system to their advantage and are never expected to take responsibility for their actions, not to mention that they are ones who are most in favor of bringing in these huge masses of migrants, at least in Europe. Not all women do these things, but they carry on, support and spread the ideology that led to them getting more rights than men: they are the ones who educate (indoctrinate) the children, both at home and at school, they’re the ones who are getting most of the degrees and getting the higher jobs and are in the media and in politics, changing laws and the perception of the public. You can see an example of this situation in the Gomeshi case and how it was handled by the media.
So what can I do, when even I, who am not one of those women have to come to the conclusion that the distinction no longer matters or soon it will no longer matter? Milo comes to mind, once again, when today he tweeted:
I’m sorry, North Carolina. I promise not all gays are such faggots. Happy Easter.
And welp, so much internalized misogyny. Women: stand with each other. Support each other.
When you celebrate the Ghomeshi “acquittal” as “innocence”, you’re rape culture.
We need to start fighting and show our support for men and the Western values, which have allowed us to have rights and thrive, just like the peaceful Muslims need to stand up against Muslim terrorists, especially the Muslims who have been welcomed by the West generations ago and allowed them to thrive.
