Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Is This the New Normal?

Charles Johnson shares a death threat from an Omani adherent of the Religion of Peace. (h/t: Robert Spencer)
Allah Willing, thetime will come when flashes of fire will burn your belly to ash, your wife(your yahoodi whore) shall be a slave for the pleasure of the Al-Muslimoon. Inshallah, I will find yuo and killed you SOMEDAY YOU KUFFAR PIG, YOU SON OF THE APES AND THE SWINE ALLAH TA’ALLA SHALL ROAST YOUR ORGANS FOR THE PLEASURE OF THE MUSLIMS YOU SCUM FILTHEIR THNA THE COCKROACH, YOU K A F I R

Just a few days ago, Larry O'Donnell revealed to Hugh Hewitt that he would rather slander a presidential candidate's religion than say anything bad about Islam, because he is scared of Muslims.
HH: Would you say the same things about Mohammed as you just said about Joseph Smith?

LO’D: Oh, well, I’m afraid of what the…that’s where I’m really afraid. I would like to criticize Islam much more than I do publicly, but I’m afraid for my life if I do.

HH: Well, that’s candid.

LO’D: Mormons are the nicest people in the world. They’re not going to ever…

HH: So you can be bigoted towards Mormons, because they’ll just send you a strudel.

LO’D: They’ll never take a shot at me. Those other people, I’m not going to say a word about them.

Mark Steyn, who has been sued for Islamophobia in Canada for an extract from America Alone published in a magazine, echoes Michelle Malkin concerning Aqsa Parvez, the young lady from the suburbs of Toronto who refused to wear a hijab and was strangled to death by her father for the transgression. The WaPo's headline reads "Canadian Teen Dies; Father Charged." How antiseptic. How non-confrontational.

Mohammed Elmasry, who has filed the charges against Steyn, says of the murder, "I don't want the public to think that this is really an Islamic issue or an immigrant issue... It is a teenager issue." As if strangling a girl to death for a dress code violation happens to all teenagers, teenagers who are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Scientologist, of Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, European, Cherokee, Mexican, and African descent. Though it doesn't happen to teens like that. What happened is called an honor killing, as if honor had something to do with it. It happens to teen girls who are Muslim or who come from Arabic countries.

[Thanks for Cold Fury for pointing out the Mark Steyn situation.]

Is this the new normal? Or is it abnormal, full of hatred and contempt, violently oppressive of women, murderous, and horrible?

And if it is the latter, then what can we say of a system of thought that supports honor killing, that defends it as normal? Systematic justification of horrible, oppressive, contemptuous murder of women must be characterized for what it is: Evil. It is the perfect example of the banality of evil, as if we can be fooled by a seemingly reasonable, systemic defense of the indefensible to tolerate the intolerable.
The function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil.
-- Cicero
By evil I do not mean sin. I am no God to pass judgment on the sins of men and women. By evil I mean the systemic perversion of the natural law that God placed in the mind of humans, to the point where those who follow the perverse system come to believe that what is clearly wrong according to God's natural law is right by the measure of their perverted system. The evil system converts the human who can come to a naive but fundamentally correct understanding of human and divine goodness into an inhuman who works for the furtherance of evil, believing it to be good and good sinful. The spread of the evil system is like a cult of vampirism that makes monsters of all whom it touches (and teaches).

Baron Bodissey writes, concerning the new normal of multicultural self-loathing.
The prisoner gets used to shackles and chains. The amputee hardly notices his artificial leg. The inhabitant of Vestvågøy becomes accustomed to the long dark winter, the call of the gulls, and the crash of the sea against the cliffs. [...]

The fear of Muslim wrath dovetails neatly with Orthodox Multiculturalism, producing that familiar attitude of cringing appeasement displayed by virtually every public figure in the face of Islamic intimidation. Allah proposes and the infidel disposes — at least if he wants to keep his head.

Roger Simon writes, concerning the coward Larry O'Donnell
when I first read those statements, my mouth dropped open.

They are particularly disturbing if you compare the estimated number of Muslims in the world (1.5 billion) to the number of Mormons (12 million) and the likelihood of either group being responsible for, say, a bombing in the New York subway. Of course, O’Donnell is clearly aware of this – all too clearly. And he has decided to opt out. [...]

O’Donnell’s cowardice would not be interesting, however, were he not typical. O’Donnell’s kind of fear is all around us. We have it among artists who censor themselves and journalists who are afraid to speak out. These people have buried their traditional liberal values under a veneer of false tolerance and trendy cultural relativism and essentially turned liberalism on its head.

O’Donnell is no longer a liberal in the sense I understood it growing up. In fact, he runs away from defending the basic canon of liberalism without which it cannot exist – free speech. A true liberal is a man like Flemming Rose who had the courage to defend that freedom against the onslaught of opposition to the publication of the Danish cartoons. Where was O’Donnell on that? Quivering in his corner, worrying whether he will be shot? Where was O’Donnell (a man of the entertainment industry, no less) when director Theo Van Gogh was stabbed to death by an Islamist on the streets of Amsterdam for making a film critical of Islam? Busy attacking George Bush, I imagine. The courage of Rose and Van Gogh (and Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Ibn Warraq and Wafa Sultan, etc.) is paying O’Donnell’s check from the McLaughlin Group in a very real sense. He owes them all a commission.
Appeasement, submission, payment of the jizya, the signs of preemptive surrender to an army that would swiftly transform our society and world into something we would never recognize.

Yield not to evils, but attack all the more boldly.
-- Virgil

One thing we need is a retrenchment and renewal of traditional values expressed in ways that make them relevant to modern times. Defensive indoctrination against the destructive indoctrination of the Gramscians and Islamists must be the first step. Thus we may be inoculated against the perverse arguments of those who would fool us into surrendering our way of life, and our life itself, to their cruel monotheistic paganism.

Only then will an attack on the bad traditions of the demographic invaders of Europe and the USA succeed.
