The Islamophobic backlash everyone worries about but never seems to materialize has finally showed up.

How to Be Politically Correct

One current year ago today.

The better title should be:

How to Honor the 2016 Orlando Nightclub Shooting Victims While Remaining Politically Correct.

After all, we have a narrative to peddle, and a coalition of the fringes to maintain.





The Lyda Krewson of Britain

London

Theresa May.

What do I mean by that?

When problematic minority groups get in an especially peaceful mood, they, along with many others, point the fingers at distractions and diversions, so we don’t think about the problematic minority groups.

When it’s black crime in St. Louis, Lyda bawks about the cops not being paid enough and century-old statues.

Meanwhile, when it’s the Religion of Peace in London and Manchester, Theresa May blames the internet.

And she wonders why she and her party are tanking in the polls.  Oh yeah, that’s coming up soon, and that cute little gamble of hers (“April May June”) could very well blow up in her face just like a Religion of Peace bookbag.

Anyway, back to the point, we know May is right, because the internet helped the spread of the Umayyad Caliphate, and later the Ottoman Turks.

Fret about backlash.

Ye (Really) Olde Internets

Reuters:

The leaders signed a joint statement to “combat the misuse of the Internet by terrorists”, backing efforts to make technology companies do more to crack down on what May called “the hateful ideology” of Islamic State.

“Against the backdrop of Monday’s cowardly attack in Manchester we have discussed what more we can do to defeat global terror,” May told a news conference.

“We agreed the threat from Daesh (Islamic State) is evolving rather than disappearing. As they lose ground in Iraq and Syria, foreign fighters are returning and the group’s hateful ideology is spreading online. Make no mistake, the fight is moving from the battlefield to the internet.”

And I’m not cool with this brewing narrative of “blame the internet.”  Of course, what other option do they have?  Must not be racist, or Islamophobic, because diversity.

Let me put it to you this way:  I use the phrase “Ye Olde Internets” fully with tongue in cheek, and just to be cute.  But, the way these people are going on, and if this is any indication, this “blame the internet” official public meme is going to go balls to the wall until there’s no groove left on the vinyl, they must think the internet actually is that old.  You know, because the internet existed in the seventh and eighth century to help facilitate the growing Caliphate and help it make it halfway up through what is now modern-day France until Charles Martel stopped them and started pushing them back.  Which means the internet also existed in the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries as the Ottoman Turks karked Constantinople and then almost 200 years later made it close to the gates of Vienna until Jan Sobieski did his best Charles Martel impersonation.

Here’s a piece of advice:  Crack a Koran every once in awhile, and actually read the thing.

Over/under on how many hours it will be until the mainstream media run its first article fretting about an Islamophobic backlash?
