Having been called a bigot, racist, islmaophobe and host of other nasty names has not, will not EVER bother me in the least. Comes with territory of being a staunch counterjihadist.
Am I a pitcher and purveyor of hatred because I speak, know and reveal the truth about islam and sharia law? There is rarely anything posted here that has not been researched and is not the TRUTH. I try to make sure that all that is posted here is true and supported by facts, period. Of course, we here who hang out at the Corner are known to stray into political incorrectness and gutter humor. I make no apologies for this to anyone. I have to reined in on occasion when my anger and impatience gets the best of me. That is just one reason I have Ozark Guru around to keep order in the court.
Back to subject of discussion: being a called a bigot by those who scream racism from the left, progressives, by islamists and islamic apologetics. Is this a phenomenon caused by virtue and purity of motive?
Here is what Bill Warner from Political Islam has to say about this.
The Virtuous Bigot
By Bill Warner
We have a new kind of bigot today, the virtuous bigot. You can find a virtuous bigot by reading the writings of just about any apologist for Islam. It seems that it almost impossible for an apologist to resist proving the point of the beauty of Islam, by saying that those who find fault in Islam are bigots, racists, haters, and Islamophobes.
All of those who use fact-based arguments against Islam or reveal the enormous suffering caused by Islam are attacked by being called members of the KKK and worse. Any criticism of Islam is treated as hate speech.
Actually, the real meaning of “bigot” is someone who opposes the social and racial policies of the establishment. It just means: “we-hate-you”. “Bigot” has lost its moral meaning.
Various “civil rights” and Muslim organizations give the public lists of Muslim-hating-bigots. But, look at the bigots on these lists. What do all of these people have in common? They all know the history and doctrine of Political Islam. They are courageous and speak truth to the power of an establishment: the main stream media, universities and the government. These aren’t haters; they are heroes who speak the truth about the doctrine and history of Political Islam and its danger to our civilization. All such people are hero bigots, virtuous bigots.
Why are virtuous bigots insulted this way?
Name calling is the first resort to those who don’t have a logical point to make. You don’t have to know any facts to call someone a bigot. Name calling is justified only if it comes at the end of a line of logic that proves that the name is a true measure of the person.
Notice that those who call those with knowledge, bigots, never attack the facts of the case. The establishment has no facts at their disposal, only “opinions” from their “experts”.
But there is no logic to the name calling, it is only an insult. That explains why the term “racist” is used. Islam has nothing to do with race, but term racist is the worst term in the lexicon of the establishment. Since it is the worst name, it is used, simply because it is the worst.
When a Muslim calls a critic of Islam names; it is Islamic and has precedent. Allah calls Kafirs insulting names in the Koran:
16:105 Those who do not believe in Allah’s revelations forge lies. They are the liars.
25:44 Or do you think that most of them even hear or understand? They are just like cattle. No, they stray even further from the path.
And then there is worst name ever created that Allah and Mohammed use--Kafir. No other word has such negative connotations—and all of them are from Allah.
The main reason that Muslims and apologists for Islam call us bigots is that it works. Most people are decent people who want to do well and be seen as a good person. Bigots aren’t nice people, so the threat of being called a bigot is enough to make the average minister, reporter, and every day person to be quiet about Islam. Most people do not have the fortitude or courage to stand against the establishment and its threats, so they remain silent. The silent voices may be a majority, but they don’t count. The reason that we are called bigots is that it works.
There is, however, a beautiful armor against the slings and arrows of being called a bigot—a high moral purpose. If you could speak to those virtuous bigots who get smeared by Islam and the apologists, you would find that they all are doing what they do, not for fame and fortune (do you really think that there is real money is in selling books on Islam?), but because they have a high moral purpose. Their moral purpose is to save our precious civilization built on critical thought, the Golden Rule and freedom from an Islamic civilization built on submission, dualistic ethics and citizens in slavery to Sharia law.
There is a moral battle going on to save our civilization. Being a bigot in the fight against Political Islam and Sharia is a badge or honor and courage. Be a virtuous bigot in the ranks of the anti-Political Islam fighters. Virtuous bigotry is the high moral position.
