All over Europe, ordinary people are up on charges for openly expressing ideas that the elite consider “unapproved”. The Austrian anti-jihad activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is currently on trial in Vienna for speaking the truth about Islam. The original charge was “incitement to hatred”. On the second day of her trial, the judge at her own discretion added a second charge, “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion.”
Yesterday the English Defence League, a group formed to resist the Islamisation of the UK held a demonstration in Luton UK. Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff gave a speech to the protesters. If you want to read the whole speech, it is here. I have reproduced here what I think is an important part for it deals with the real problem we have in our societies where self appointed “elitists”, aka the guardians of Cultural Marxism, attempt to falsely label those who speak out and thereby break the social conventions these elitists insist we bow down to.
Walking around the street where the protesters gathered, I looked into the faces of these lads, trying to find what the press keep describing as “hatred”. But I was unable to find any. The mood was a somber one, despite the high beer consumption, and the reason for that mood had a simple explanation: native Lutonians no longer recognize their own city. There are Muslim gangs running the streets, harassing women and girls. There is a city council which caters solely to the Muslim groups, giving in to their every demand, the latest one being — no surprise here — a mega-mosque to be built in the very near future. The Lutonians are no longer Lutonians, but strangers in their own city, the place where they were born and grew up.
And, perhaps most dangerous, they are no longer even heard by their elected officials. Instead, members of the EDL are branded as racists for saying they want England to remain English; for complaining about their children being served halal-slaughtered food in their schools; for not wanting shariah law to be established in Luton or anywhere else in England.
These brave men and women do not deserve to be labeled “racists” for defending their home country. In a normal world the otherwise silent majority would be lining the streets applauding them for their bravery, and thanking them for standing up for their hometown. But in today’s warped world, they are called “racists”, “xenophobes”, “fascists”, and many other less polite epithets.
Yes. They are called this by such venerable English institutions as the BBC and the newspaper the Guardian, two groups that above all, given their traditional English foundations, should be standing for the right of the EDL to protest. Instead, in their craven worship of “multiculturalism” they work assiduously to generate a climate of hate towards the EDL.
They are failing. Support continues to grow for the EDL and even the spineless UK Conservatives and their weak and indistinct leader David Cameron are being forced by popular uprising to whistle a different tune. In a speech that many commentators claimed to signal the “death of multi-culturalism” Cameron said-
“Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream. We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. All Britons should believe in basic values of freedom and equality, and actively promote them. That means ensuring that immigrants learn to speak English and that all schools teach elements of a common culture and curriculum. Racism and intolerance are rightly condemned, but when equally unacceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious, frankly too fearful, to stand up to them.”
“Fearful to stand up to them?” Of course, because any slight wandering from the straight and approved path of political correctness has lead to a crescendo of deeply entrenched reverse hatred from those who portray themselves as “tolerant liberals”. You only have to read Kiwiblog to know that.
