I suppose if I hadn’t read Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Mark Steyn, Douglas Murray, Irshad Manji, Robert Spencer, Oriana Fallaci, Mark Durie, Michel Houellebecq and number of others; if I hadn’t often dipped into the Koran and the Hadith to check on what malign drivel was being said and written; if I hadn’t heard of Charlie Hebdo, Manchester Arena, 7/7 and 9/11, and so on, ad infinitum; if I was ignorant of the growth of no-go areas in western Europe; if I hadn’t seen the despicable Sheikh Ibrahim Dadoun celebrating the Hamas slaughter of men women, children, and babies (and babies!); if I was blissfully unaware of chants of “gas the Jews” at the Sydney Opera House; if I did not know that Islamic terrorism was responsible for over 44,000 deadly attacks since 9/11 – I might be a useful idiot.
As it is, I recognise Islam as a creed which can warp the minds of its devout followers and which therefore throws up a continual stream of barbarism. That Muslims make up around 25% of the world’s population illustrates the size of the threat faced by those defending western civilisation; and by those enjoying its benefits, without realising how tenuous its hold is becoming. Let me be even clearer. Adult Germans living from 1935 to 1945 were not all, or mostly, monsters. But great numbers were followers of a monstrous creed. That makes them complicit and enablers. And let there be little doubt, mostly enthusiastic overlords, if they’d won.
So my advice to idiots is to read, see and hear nothing of truth, objectivity and honest to goodness common sense and skepticism. That way you will remain vacuous ready to be filled by propaganda. Apropos the climate emergency, the “generous offer” of the Voice, that sex is merely a social construct, and fake stories of Islamophobia. Like Anthony Albanese you will never condemn antisemitism without also enjoining a Muslim / Palestinian prayer point. Like Penny Wong and Zoe Daniel you will know nothing about the rules of war but won’t let that stop you making inane anti-Israeli prejudicial comments.
