A big ask

You know, it is a huge thing we’re asking of the Middle East and Afghanistan. We’re asking them to catch up to, like, 400 years of Western cultural shift. Overnight.

We’re demanding they instantly accept attitudes toward self-government and religion that it took us hundreds of years and a few nasty wars to reach.

We’re asking them to adopt attitudes about women we’ve only reached in the last forty years and attitudes to homosexuality we’ve only realized in the last twenty.

And some of the stuff we’re pushing on them has to look pretty unattractive. They could be forgiven for thinking free speech and a secular society inevitably results in our current style of slutty, trashy popular culture. (I don’t think it is inevitable. I think it took a relentless campaign to eradicate shame to make that happen).

It’s not exactly sympathy. But I think we asking for a huge leap from…excitable people. I’ll be astonished if the Arab Spring ends well. Or soon.

Some cool things I’ve run across today. A gallery of pulp bookcovers. A little girl screws up the Star Wars show by volunteering to join the Dark Side. They’ve found a pretty intact Dornier bomber off the nearby Kent coast.

And my favorite: iguana fart!

As to your original premise and resultant query….
It will not end well, or soon!

They, the Islamist culture, have chosen a path that requires of me, my family and my own cultural norms and mores, to make my own 180 degree shift and recant all the exponential growth that has taken place in the last 400 plus years. In their world,I am not allowed to be a Jew, a Buddhist or a Christian!

They want me to wipe my arse with my left hand, beat my wife (or wives, give up my Guiness and Bushmills and shag sheep?

AND…give up bacon to boot?

Sorry, It ain’t gonna happen! I will keep my handguns, shotguns,long guns; the ability to reload them all… and my bible and my ability to protect myself under the stars and stripes (or stars and bars or union jack) and send as many of these twisted and blood hungry, misogynistic pedophiles to their version of heaven as my arms and aim allow me.

God may have mercy…In this case, I do not.

Bye the way, I have found this:

Hey, Stoatie. Have you witnessed any scrums like this yet?

Actually, I’d be happy if they could reach attitudes towards women and gays that we had 100 years ago. I mean, I’m pretty sure that in 1911 over here no woman was stoned for being raped, and I’m pretty sure homosexuality wasn’t a hanging offense either.

Edited to add: I don’t buy the “but we have a lot of disgusting habits” argument either. The fact that my sister was a juvenile delinquent would never have been acceptable to my parents as an excuse for any bad behavior I might get into.

You people give women too many powers.
NZ is a highly feminised country, where trade unionists and gaggles of gays run political parties, society is polarised towards feminist indoctrination.
The Femi-facists seem to think that woman should be the dominant ruling sex in society, and that men are parasites.
We’ve seen the destruction of the nuclear family, more kids born out of wedlock, and everything is going to hell in a hand basket.

The fact that Muslims stick their women in a Burka, and kill homosexuals is just starting to have appeal.
Given that a Labour MP here has just resigned amid allegations that he drugged and anally raped an 18 year old.

All this from giving chicks an over-abundence of rights?
Well extreme you may say .. however given that gays and feminists are in the same bed in politics, it won’t be long till the age of consent is lowered, and sodomy of children is enlawed.
All the time pandering to the rights of Muslims? Whom wish to Clitorectimise and Burkerise women, and stone homosexuals?

Hang on a minute ..

My, he does seem to have trouble with consistency and explicability, doesn’t he?

Although the “a” suffix would suggest a feminine identity.

Huhn. Seems unlikely, that, but it could be someone very clever with a lot of time on its hands. . .

Pikeys are not allergic to appropriation of some unchained asset, ’tis true.

But you may be overlooking another motive of the paint-happy Farmer McGillicuddy: to see large orange splotches on the front of Druid robes.

Can’t say this is a purely irrational impulse given the dental nature of many an English rose.

Actually Scube, that is not entirely accurate, as you most likely know. I merely pointed out problems for the site, which those in a position of doing something about it found it easier to undertake their present actions other than deal with the problem itself.
But then that is a common failing in the world today …

I’m still in a blog war with you, but I’m commenting anyway. At least I’m disagreeing.

We did it with Japan, it just took years after we kicked their ever-loving butts with conventional and nukular weapons, and their culture was at least as messed up.

Iraq has a good chance.

I’d say what has to happen is to keep places like Egypt voting, the problem is that most crap-country elections are, as they say, “one man, one vote, one time”.

If they can keep their elections, sooner or later they’re going to realize that they don’t hate the Jews more than they like clean water and food and not being blowed up.

The biggest problem, I’d say, is that we haven’t kicked their butts enough.
We need to just go in and really mess up some Crapistan.

And having a world media and political class (and now POTUS) that doesn’t always say America is the worst in the world would be nice too.

Stoaty, Veeshir has been angry with a pic of Hillary that I put up weeks ago. I even tried to entice him back with Salma Hayak and last night I had to boob-bomb him. And he survived the attack. I’ve seen cockroaches with less sturdy constitutions.

Now I’m not just boycotting, I’m double secret boycotting!
[snips ranting]
I’m triple secret boycotting. A boycott so heinous your blog will probably not last out the decade!

He’s probably becoming one of those poor folks clinging to religion and firearms and monster trucks. 🙂

Nice use of Islamic Rage Boy above, btw.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
