Imagine if an American city continued to celebrate a prominent businessman who had published newspapers and books advocating overt racism and racial discrimination against Black people. Imagine if the Grand Wizard of the KKK had a picture of this man in his office and credited him with inspiring him to kill African Americans. Imagine statues and photographs commemorating the life of such a bigot. Imagine if a performing arts center was named after him and African American performers who wanted to appear in the city had to walk into a building bearing the name of this racist. The reaction would be immediate and uncompromising: all glorification of this racist must stop; statues and pictures must be removed; history must treat him as a pariah despite his positive accomplishments as a businessman.
Well, the city Dearborn, Michigan is celebrating such a racist bigot today. But no one is demanding that his images must be removed or his despicable history and ideology publicized. His name is Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motor Company.
Ford devoted his life to two passions: making cars and demonizing Jews. When Hitler said, “I regard Henry Ford as my inspiration,” he wasn’t referring to his car manufacturing. He was referring to Ford’s anti-Semitic ideology that eventuated in the genocide of six million Jews. A large photograph of Ford was prominently displayed in Hitler’s office. The periodical Ford published weekly — The Dearborn Independent — was a polite version of the Nazi newspaper, Der Stürmer. It was circulated throughout the U.S. and around the world.
The endless pandering to the migrants in Germany will win Merkel’s party their votes, and that is apparently all that matters to Merkel and her cohorts.
Meanwhile, why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Syrian man accused of gang rape of 18-year-old girl along with ‘ten others’ in Germany will appear in juvenile court despite being aged 22,” by Sara Malm, MailOnline, February 18, 2019:
What do you get if you are caught repeatedly spewing antisemitic statements alleging that Jewish money controls American foreign policy, or that the planet’s lone Jewish state has powers that “hypnotized the world“?
If you’re freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, it’s the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Omar may thus assume that she can continue to espouse such hateful rhetoric without consequences.
News reports on Tuesday credited Omar with deleting past social media posts that also were antisemitic. But during an event in Washington, DC, on Wednesday evening, Omar launched another defensive rant that raised an antisemitic dual loyalty canard against critics of her antisemitism, the Jewish Insider reports.
These activists can’t get out of their own way. When AFDI ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. It was that, or risk not being invited to the best parties.
