First post. This is an experiment that will probably be intermittant in nature as I squeeze in time to post and talk about stuff, mainly on how the world is changing.
Theo Van Gogh's murder still resounds in my mind even though two weeks have passed. I still think of him innocently peddling his bicycle as a deranged man shoots him five times and as Theo pleads that they can still work it out, this hate filled man almost saws Theo's head off.
What pissed this hate filled man off enough to want to brutally murder Theo Van Gogh? Theo made a film that was critical of how Islam and Shar'ia made women slaves with no rights called Submission. This pustule of manhood was a follower of that faith. And instead of trying to discuss his problems with the film with Theo, he brutally attacked and murdered Theo Van Gogh. He tried to silence Theo's voice, though his movie is more famous now. Like Obi-Wan saying "If you strike me down Darth, I will become more powerful." Thanks to the Internet, Theo's voice has become even more powerful and loud.
What this hateful man did would be akin to someone attacking and murdering Mel Gibson over his movie The Passion of the Christ because that someone did not agree with what Mr. Gibson produced. If such an event happened I would vehemantly condemn whomever did such a crime just as I condemn Mohammed B for his murder of Theo Van Gogh.
There are those who think the fault for Theo's murder lie with Theo himself for making his movie. To these cowards, what fools you are. If you lack the courage to question the things around you, especially things that are hazardous to your cultural and personal survival, then you are nothing but sheep to be lead to the slaughter.
Socrates was murdered by his city-state via hemlock because he had the courage to question their policies in public and encouraged others to do the same. Those who say Theo brought this upon himself and that he bears sole responsibility for his own murder are just like those Athenian leaders who had Socrates drink that hemlock because they were afraid Socrates might be right and hence upset their little empire. Theo dared to shine a bright light on Islam's treatment of women and found a dirty not so secret, in Islam women are property. For daring to buck the trend of much of 'modern' Western society to treat Islam as a monolithic positive religion, to show that soiled and dirty night shirt that lurks underneath. That is why to some Theo had to die. There are many in the Western world who want to deny Theo had a point and a voice because they are truly afraid they will have to rethink their pet world view so they latch onto anything to denigrate his opinion. Yes Theo was just as scathing of Christians, but did a Christian murder Theo? No, a follower of the prophet did and this fact should not be forgotten.
Luckily the country of Holland is waking up to the menace posed by the relativist apologists of Islam. Please D66 and the people of Holland, resist the crack-brained idea of re-instating the ban on religious insults, this is only the creation of thought police to regulate speech that will do nothing to quell the real disease. Be strong Holland, do not let the merchants of hate and death cow you. Do not let those who are faint of heart discourage you from preserving your wonderful culture. For if you fail, then the windmills of Holland will suddenly be outnumbered by minarets calling the faithful of Islam to prayer five times a day while you the original inhabitants will be reduced to slave status if you do not convert to Islam.
