The CAIR Quote That’s Making the Rounds This Evening September 23, 2015

Posted by geoff in News.

Expansionism is always a threat to the entrenched. So the expansion of capitalism and Western culture into other regions has been regarded with as much suspicion as the threat of expansion of communism in the West. In the wake of the Ben Carson brouhaha you can cue more suspicion with this quote that’s floating about the Intertubes tonight (though the quote is from 1998):


But one man’s unwelcome expansionism is another man’s “gift” to a needy society – how to tell whether expansionism is good or bad? Is what that CAIR fellow said (if he really said it – he says he didn’t) all that bad, or am I just looking at it through prejudiced Western eyes?

Well, IMHO just as the arrow of time is defined by the direction that increases entropy, the virtue of expansionism is defined by the direction that increases personal freedom. Since Western culture celebrates personal freedom, I think its expansion is a positive for the world. Cultures which restrict personal freedom are a negative.

And that CAIR statement is definitely oriented towards restricting personal freedoms.

If you didn’t think Muslims were getting a little pushy about changing our society to suit them, check this out:

Tempers flared at a school board meeting in New Jersey when a room crowded with Muslim parents learned that schools will remain open during Thursday’s religious holiday of Eid al-Adha.

Several of the Muslim parents and children screamed in rage and openly wept when the board announced its decision.

At one point, a young woman in a purple head scarf took the microphone and told them: ‘We’re no longer the minority, that’s clear from tonight. We’re going to be the majority soon.’

Very nice. Apparently they’ve got big plans.

That’s insane. Nobody flipped out when some kids didn’t come to school on Good Friday. Life just goes on.
