It has been so long since we’ve heard from any ‘offended’ Muslims that I was beginning to think they had come to their senses and realized that no one outside the media bubble gives a damn how they feel about anything.
But, no, they’re back and it suddenly seems like every time you turn around there’s a new group of hysterical Muslims demanding apologies and retribution over some trivial matter that nobody in their right might would dream of taking seriously, whether it’s a pop music video or a satirical newspaper article, or the ever reliable cartoon of Muhammad.
That’s the prophet Muhammad of course, you must have heard of him and wished you hadn’t.
Well I don’t think it’s fair that Muslims should carry so much of the burden of being offended by stuff. It’s not doing much for their reputation so I think the rest of us should show them some support by being offended too, whenever possible. We all have the right to be offended of course and now that Islam is here, throwing its weight around, we all have plenty to be offended about so what are we waiting for? I’ll get the ball rolling then, shall I?
I’m offended by Islamic supremacism, a bit of an obvious one admittedly, especially when they lie about it and call it ‘multiculturalism’. That really offends me.
I’m offended by the sneaky way Islamic activists exploit western guilt to invoke victim-hood and claim multiple concessions that impinge on the lives of others.
Ridiculous concessions that no other religion would get or even ask for:
- Special food that everyone has to eat.
- Special clothes that threaten the security of others.
- Special social conditions that insult and divide people unnecessarily,
- Special conditions at work that tread on everyone else’s toes.
- Special treatment before the law.
If you burn a Quran in Britain you’ll be arrested as a criminal. If you burn a Bible, you won’t. I’m offended by that.
I’m offended by Islamic values generally. I find them deeply, morally offensive. Profoundly so when it comes to women. I would like to tell you just how offensive but I don’t have the vocabulary to really do it justice so let’s just say that on a scale of offense 1-10, I would put it around 100…no, 1000. So if you’re a potentially offended Muslim, rest assured that nothing I say about your religion could possibly offend you anymore than your religion has already offended me many, many times over.
Be offended, by all means, if that’s what you want to do but a word to the wise, don’t embarrass yourself by making up a phony mental illness and try to pin it on people and try to shut them up. Oh, too late, you already have. How deeply humiliating for you and how offensive to the rest of us.
In fairness we should be grateful that most of the Muslims are not that easy to offend. If they were we wouldn’t be able to do or say anything at all because virtually everything about western society offends the religion of Islam. So, any Muslim who really wants to be offended only needs to walk down the street and he can be in high dudgeon before he reaches the corner. So we should be glad that most of them are not like that, but some are and one is too many.
By the way, you’ll notice that I said “he” just now. Of course I realize their are female Muslims who like to be offended but we have to remember that a woman is worth only half a man and I don’t want to short-change anybody here.
If you’re a Muslim and you find that your beliefs get insulted now and then, well that’s not very nice but my advice is to laugh it off and forget about it. Mark it down to the robust exchange of ideas and opinions that have made western society the most vibrant and successful on the planet and thank your lucky stars you live here, as I do…every day.
If your beliefs get insulted a lot, on the other hand, well that’s a different matter but it’s got nothing to do with anybody else having a ‘phobia’. It’s because there is something wrong with your beliefs and if you can’t see that then there’s something wrong with you.
You are the one with a phobia. You are the one with a mental disorder. You are the one with the problem, and you and your beliefs are the problem for everyone else.
I’m talking here, specifically, to the professional crybabies of Islam. People like CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and all these other self-appointed loud mouths who grab every opportunity, however ridiculous or artificial, to be offended.
Let me do you people a favor by telling you what the media wouldn’t dream of telling you because it’s the truth.
Nobody cares about your feelings. We’re all sick and tired of hearing about you and your poxy feelings. We look at the trivial things that offend you and the vile things that don’t offend you and we have nothing but contempt for you and your feelings. We’re glad you’re offended and we hope you work yourself into such a state of righteous apoplexy that you literally explode.
But most of all we wish, oh how we wish, that you would take that religion of yours and those precious feelings and shove them right up your ass. That is how we really feel and if you don’t believe me, just ask us and preferably in a bar as alcohol has a way of bringing out the truth, feelings or no feelings.
Islam’s reputation is being cemented today, for generations to come, by this current crop of professional complainers and privilege seekers. It’s almost as if they want their religion to be unpopular. How else do you explain their behavior? Are they really too stupid to see the damage they’re doing, or are they too happy wallowing in their fake victim-hood to care?
Every decent Muslim should be cursing these people, these self-appointed community leaders who claim to represent them yet whose behavior has made their religion so resented and despised.
These people are the reason so many of us in the west, who were formerly neutral about Islam, now feel that we’ve seen its true intolerant, ugly, devious face and we will never trust it or respect it again. That’s what these people have done for your religion, Muslims. With friends like that, who needs enemies?
