Birmingham INO

from No Dhimmitude

"Vive le Bleue!

TruePeers, of YARGB, and Dag, of No Dhimmitude,
are promoting the Blue Scarf Revolution: This Thursday at 7 pm local time, I
will be meeting Dag of the No Dhimmitude blog, for a discussion of free speech,
multiculturalism, and Islam, at a McDonald's restaurant at Main and Terminal in
Vancouver, British Columbia (the McDonald's on the southwest corner, not the one
across the street in the train station).

Thanks to Dag's blogging and to
the Revolution Bleue movement in France that has emerged in response to elite
media and government crack downs on Republican free speech, in the wake of the
recent riots and the more general desire in many western countries to ban
anti-Islamic and other forms of politically-incorrect speech (on this see, for
example, Wretchard's recent post), there will be people meeting around the world
in McDonald's restaurants and wearing blue scarves to identify each other and to
show sympathy with those in France who are wearing blue scarves in public
opposition to their present regime.

While we Canadians are yet unsure if
we share fully in the goals of the French blue scarves - a recent anti-Masonic
comment at their blog raised eyebrows because of the proximity of anti-Masonic
and antisemitic rhetoric historically... but Freemasonry in France is a frankly
political and anti-clerical movement, perhaps deserving some criticism, we don't
know - it strikes us as nonetheless important for westerners to get out in
public and find their voices in face of the various postmodern ideologies that
would limit speech in the name of the supposed victims of free speech.

And it is important for people to discuss this issue in terms of the
ongoing conflict between the west and Islam - or Islamic radicalism, if you

What, for example, is the duty of western men and women to the
Islamic women who are forced (in our opinion) to wear extreme forms of head
covering, like the Burka, in our westetern cities, a symbol of their more
general oppression under Islam and related forms of family life?

How do
we contest the multicultural ideolgies that would defend "the choice" to wear
the burka, as a "right"?

This question of defending women enslaved by
religion, family, and multicultural ideology is the specific topic for our
meeting this Thursday. If you cannot join us, have a look at Dag's blog -
especially his archives for last week - to gain some sense of the larger blue
scarf movement and consider organizing a meeting at your local McDonald's. Just
get the word out in the blogosphere when you will be at McDonald's, and see if
any blue scarves show up. It worked for Dag.

Dag chose McDonald's as our
meeting place, not simply because they are ubiquitous and you can sit for hours
with a cup of coffee. In their ubiquity McDonald's also symbolize a western
secular alternative to the sacred meeting places of the Islamic world. And
because the target of our discussions is not simply Islamic radicalism, but its
present tactical marriage with imperialistic western multiculturalism,
McDonald's is the perfect symbol since it is so often a scandal for the elitist
anti-American leftists who know what is best for all of us and who would
restrict our free speech and stomachs accordingly.

Of course, it is when
the mouths are closed that violence is most certain, and the present moves to
restrict free speech are sure to reduce the security of Muslims in the west, not
strengthen it. Because we are not against Muslims as people (we are out to love
and defend the better side of humanity in all of us) but simply want a venue to
meet and criticize aspects of both Islamic religion and postmodern western
ideologies, we expect and will welcome into our meetings people of all faiths
and backgrounds."

Personally I still prefer Hooter's of Brook Highland, because nothing says Infidels Night Out like beer, bacon cheeseburgers, and beautiful babes. See you there.

Only four of us, but we discussed some ideas that may engage us more in confronting Islam.
