Re: The 'Political Correctness Gone Mad' Thread
I want to get this off my chest, but as far as cultural incompatibility is concerned, one of the main things that impact a huge number of people that's incompatible is what women wear.
In Islam, a woman is supposed to be covered from head to foot. Now while there are liberal muslim men that have been able to overcome their indoctrination to an extent, there are huge numbers that don't and continue to harbor hatred.
The second one is eating pork and drinking alcohol. Again, there are some Muslim men and women that do engage once in a while and "cut loose". But most do that during their formative years and call it "experimenting" and then become "born again Muslim". That is the muslim you have to worry about. When people think of born again, they think of born again christians, who actually become annoying, but very peaceful. They embrace the new testament message of love even if they're somewhat hypocritical. The problem with the born again muslim is that that liberal man or woman you knew in college no longer exists at all and is replaced by an extremely conservative person whose values are no longer at all compatible with western values. Just because your friend Abu Mohammad or whatever is currently drinking with you in a gay bar does not guarantee at all that 10 years from now he won't become Anjem Chaudary ...
Sure, the rebuttal to this is that any white person can also become an extremist, but since that white person doesn't share a common fundamentalist ideology with other whites, the chances of him having the exact same motivations is very low - and therefore the numbers of extremist whites remain low and in-check. It's self-controlling as there isn't a core ideology that is a gateway to extremism.
This is my biggest critique of Islam. Because it hasn't been reformed to the extent that it should have been (or christianity has) and it literally has no concept of lapsed, agnostic or atheist muslims living among them to bring moderation to their echo chamber, the chances of immigrant children growing up to be extremists is much higher than that of any other group.
The political left does not understand this at all and does not want to accept this as a possible outcome or truth .. and it's unfortunately because of their trusting and loving nature. That's a western value in and of itself - and it's a great one imo that should never be forced to change - but until and unless there's caution thrown into the mix, this value is literally the one that's at the greatest risk of disappearing. Then I can't even begin to imagine the world where it doesn't have the empathy, kindness and love of white people ...
