Political Correctness vs Truth

Journalist in France Convicted for Anti-Muslim Hate Speech
By Selwyn Duke, on February 25th, 2011

Eric Zemmour made the mistake of pointing out that most drug dealers in France are blacks and Arabs.

We've heard a lot about Geert Wilders, the Dutch parliamentarian whose warnings about Muslim influence in his nation placed him in the crosshairs of the powers-that-be. But while the tow-headed modern-day Templar has thus far dodged the hangman on Truth-speech charges, another intrepid defender of Western civilization has not been so lucky. And we haven't heard much about him.

He is French journalist Eric Zemmour, and he was just convicted this week of "inciting racism." Writes The New American's R. Cort Kirkwood:

Zemmour's "controversial" remarks included his observation that most drug dealers in France were black or Arab, and that employers "have the right" to deny employment to those two groups of people.

Zemmour's criminal speech occurred on a popular talk show during a discussion of why French police seem to stop minorities more than whites. Said Zemmour: "But why are they stopped 17 times? Why? Because most dealers are blacks and Arabs. That's a fact."

So Zemmour wound up in the French dock, and must now pay $14,000 to five groups that sued him for racism.

According to the New York Times, the French court said Zemmour had "gone beyond the permitted bounds of the right to freedom of speech," and that ". . . Zemmour had a particular responsibility to respect those limits as a 'professional of the media and of expression.'"

obama's birth certificate
"I don't know what the facts are regarding Barack Obama's early life because he has made it a point to withhold virtually all documentation that would be meaningful to support his story. Obviously Obama has a very big credibility problem in this area with the American people. Polls show most Americans don't believe his story. A dozen states are working on legislation to ensure we don't have questions of eligibility plaguing the nation after the next election. But understand this is not a problem of my creation. This is a problem of Obama's creation. It's up to him to persuade the nation of his story, not me. I would also suggest it's not up to you as a journalist. Do I think it's a healthy thing that most Americans don't believe Obama's birth story? No, I don't. But even his good friend, Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, seems terribly frustrated that Obama won't simply reveal the documentary evidence that might clear up all these questions. So why don't you ask Obama why he isn't more forthcoming? Don't we like it in America when our leaders are open, honest and transparent? Isn't that the kind of administration Obama promised?"

Obama is only being asked for proof of his place of birth because he is black.

No, he’s only being asked for proof of his place of birth because he isn’t American.

If Obama cannot prove he meets this requirement he must resign.

It is already clear that he cannot prove his citizenship.

If it is shown that he always knew he could not meet this requirement, he should be jailed for the greatest fraud of all time.

As head of Harvard Law Review, it is beyond question that he must have always known this. But then that is not fraud: it is treason – and the remedy is not imprisonment.

Muslim Brotherhood Declares War on America; Will America Notice?

By Barry Rubin

This is one of those obscure Middle East events of the utmost significance that is ignored by the Western mass media, especially because they happen in Arabic, not English; by Western governments, because they don't fit their policies; and by experts, because they don't mesh with their preconceptions.

This explicit formulation of a revolutionary program makes it a game-changer. It should be read by every Western decisionmaker and have a direct effect on policy because this development may affect people’s lives in every Western country.

OK, enough of a build-up? Well, it isn’t exaggerated. So don’t think the next sentence is an anticlimax. Here we go: The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has endorsed (Arabic) (English translation by MEMRI) anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book. Since the Brotherhood is the main opposition force in Egypt and Jordan as well as the most powerful group, both politically and religiously, in the Muslim communities of Europe and North America this is pretty serious stuff.

IPCC resignation

An Open Letter to the Community from Chris Landsea (Resignation Letter of Chris Landsea from IPCC)
Dear colleagues,

After some prolonged deliberation, I have decided to withdraw from
participating in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC). I am withdrawing because I have come to view the
part of the IPCC to which my expertise is relevant as having become
politicized. In addition, when I have raised my concerns to the IPCC
leadership, their response was simply to dismiss my concerns.

With this open letter to the community, I wish to explain the basis for my
decision and bring awareness to what I view as a problem in the IPCC

Budgets, Healthcare and Bailouts etc. comparisons??

I do not know if this is all true, but does seem to summarise and fit into other things I have read.

"The deficit rose precipitously under Reagan and started to go down under Clinton."
Clinton enjoyed the benefits of the tax cuts that Reagan put in place in response to the deficit. It took years for results. Clinton did nothing to affect this change.

"Then, Bush rose it to 11 trillion from 6 trillion. Obama inherited a gigantic financial crisis, 2 wars and a sluggish economy."

Al Jazeera

August 24, 2006 Special Dispatch No.1262
Tunisian Reformist Intellectual: Al-Jazeera TV – A Mouthpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood

In an article posted July 29, 2006 on the reformist website Elaph, Tunisian intellectual Dr. Khaled Shawkat, director of the Netherlands-based Center for Promoting Democracy in the Arab World, attacked Al-Jazeera TV because, he says, it has become the mouthpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood. [1]

The following are excerpts from his article:

"Al-Jazeera has Become [a Channel] Affiliated With a Political, Religious, and Ideological Organization [i.e. the Muslim Brotherhood]"

"I am convinced that the special status attained by the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel in the Arab and international media is based on the fact that in its early years, it dealt persistently with issues of democracy and human rights in the Arab world, dared to discuss things not spoken of in Arab politics, and exposed the disgrace of the violations and misconduct of the Arab regimes. I am also convinced that Al-Jazeera has in recent years abandoned this direction, for many reasons, and that its current administration is trying to preserve the channel's popularity by distorting Arab public opinion, [which it achieves] by stirring up emotion on sensitive regional issues, such as Palestine, Iraq, and Afghanistan...

"My renewed interest in Al-Jazeera stems from the fact that, in my view, Al-Jazeera was an historic opportunity for advancing democracy in the Arab world... and that this opportunity is being lost, if it is not lost already, just as many other opportunities have been missed by the Arabs...

"Al-Jazeera's current media direction is no longer to aspire to compete with the BBC or CNN in professionalism, independence, and courage; rather, it has become [a channel] affiliated with a political, religious, and ideological organization that strives to spread its views amongst the Arab public..."

At Al-Jazeera, "Loyalty has Come to Supersede Qualifications"

"Al-Jazeera has been hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood organization - either at the wish of the channel's owners as part of a certain political game [played] by the Qatari rulers, or out of the lack of awareness of the Qatari rulers, who think that the situation is under control and that even though they have given the Muslim Brotherhood a chance to control Al-Jazeera, for local, regional, and international considerations, they can get rid of them or restrain them any time they want...

Truth to Islamic Revolution in Egypt

What Obama or Hilary should say
..."go ahead and try a 'democractic experiment' with with your undemocratic sharia based constitution,
let extremists posing as moderates subvert the process, pretty soon you'll end up with a dictator again or in a war with Israel.
Teach your children to hate others and blame your problems on others.
Your economy won't improve because of the corruption inherent in sharia dominated Islamic model society
where women are held back and the rule of law is based on fatwas blowing in the wind.
In 30 years you can start the process all over again.
Go ahead we won't get in your way just keep to yourselves and don't mess with the only true democracy in the M.E.
Oh, try to read some books if you can find anything other than Mein Kampf or the Koran. Good luck."
