First they came for the beer …
You have to wonder when the real backlash is going to begin … if ever. But until then, these people are going to push the West until finally the West pushes back. For example, a petition is being circulated and the following letter was sent to the City Council of Munich, Germany:
Dear City council of Munich,
I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention.
I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.
We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth.
We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.
We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Now, obviously, a tradition that has been going strong since 1810 isn’t likely to be cancelled anytime soon. What’s interesting about this letter is its effrontery. And note too that it is Saul Alinsky fueled. Focus on the words used – “tolerate”, “offends”, “unfair”. Using the West’s own rhetoric against it. Of course, it seems obvious after you read the letter the irony must be “Un-Islamic” too.
But in the West, most folks would say, “hey, if you don’t like it, don’t attend, don’t drink and don’t get nude”. That’s apparently the Western notion of “tolerance”. But apparently the Muslim notion of tolerance is vastly different. They want the whole affair canceled because it is “Un-Islamic”. And whatever they determine to be “Un-Islamic” can’t coexist with them, it must be banned.
Syrian refugees are flooding Germany as we speak. Already Islam is not only large but real in Germany. At some point, when enough Muslims are of voting age, it will use Germany’s democratic institutions to elect its own to the government.
Given their apparent intolerance, it won’t be pretty if they do.
And, ironically, I think we’ve seen this movie in Germany before.
