The government doing everything in their power to protect the reputation of Islam is nothing new.
In nearly every modernized country in the world, the federal governments seem to go above and beyond to make sure that only one religion receives special treatment. In nearly every modernized country in the world, that religion is Islam.
They’re so intent on protecting its horrible reputation that they’re now trying to imprison those that criticize the ideology.
Sadiq Khan, London’s controversial Muslim mayor, has enacted a nearly $2 million operation that will have police officers tracking down “internet trolls” that are critical of Islam and arresting them for committing hate crimes. Yes, you read that correctly. In 2016 London, you can be arrested for having negative opinions of an ideology that oppresses women. Where are the outraged feminists now?
To make matters worse, Khan recently made headlines when he banned a Protein World advertisement for depicting an athletic woman in a bathing suit. There were loads of bogus excuses as to why Khan deemed the the poster to be inappropriate, but given the fact that he takes his religion extremely seriously, the real answer is pretty obvious: Khan doesn’t think women should be allowed to show their bodies in public.
A few years ago, Khan demonized moderate Muslims, calling them “Uncle Toms” — a racial slur directed towards black people. If this is what he thinks about people who don’t take Islam seriously enough, then what does he think of us folks that don’t take Islam seriously at all? It’s a dangerous thing.
Clearly we know that he thinks less of people that don’t follow his religion as he’s trying to get anyone who disagrees with Islam’s backwards, anti-freedom values thrown in jail and labeled as a criminal. It’s madness that absolutely cannot stand if we want societies to continue to develop.
This is just the next step in Khan’s attempt to enact Sharia Law in London — and that’s terrifying.
