Raped Woman Charged with having Sex outside of Marriage in Dubai

Posted by PITHOCRATES - July 21st, 2013

Week in Review

The political left hates Christianity.  For their opposition to casual sex.  Birth control (where they primarily hate the Catholics).  The morning after-pill.  And, of course, abortion.  They say Christians hate women.  That they have a war on women.  That they are no better than the Taliban.  Which is why the political left bends over backwards to appease Islam.  Not because they like the religion.  But because Islam doesn’t like Christianity.  A little of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.  Despite Islam doing things like this (see Marte Deborah Dalelv: Norwegian woman’s16-month sentence in Dubai after rape claim draws outrage by The Associated Press posted 7/21/2013 on CBS News).

A Norwegian woman sentenced to 16 months in jail in Dubai for having sex outside marriage after she reported an alleged rape said Friday she decided to speak out in hopes of drawing attention to the risks of outsiders misunderstanding the Islamic-influenced legal codes in this cosmopolitan city.

The case has drawn outrage from rights groups and others in the West since the 24-year-old interior designer was sentenced Wednesday. It also highlights the increasingly frequent tensions between the United Arab Emirates’ international atmosphere and its legal system, which is strongly influenced by Islamic traditions in a nation where foreign workers and visitors greatly outnumber locals.

That’s right.  In Dubai if a man rapes a woman they charge the woman with a crime.  For having sex outside of marriage.  Strange how in all their campaign messages during the last election we never heard the left talk about Christians doing this in the United States.  Why wouldn’t they do this?  For it would be a powerful message.  Oh, that’s right, because the Christians don’t charge women with having sex outside of marriage after they’ve been raped.  Even with their ‘war on women’.

Christian women can use birth control.  Even some ‘Catholics’ are pro-abortion.  Like Ted Kennedy was.  So women are far freer here in the United States than they are in Dubai.  Yet you never hear the left attack Islam.  They only attack Christianity.  For they may jail women for having sex outside of marriage in Muslim nations.  But they don’t have a war on women like the Christians do in America.  Which is about the only thing you hear the political left complain about when it comes to religion.  Not the oppression and abuse of women in some Muslim nations.

Unemployed Immigrants plunge Progressive and Socialist Sweden in Riots

Posted by PITHOCRATES - May 25th, 2013

Week in Review

According to the American left all of America’s problems come from a disparity in incomes.  Which a progressive government tries to fix with a progressive tax code to redistribute wealth.   To make up for that income disparity.  So unskilled people have nice things just like highly skilled workers who can demand a high income.  But the Republicans are mean.  And try to stop the left from making the country a better place.  Something a little more like, say, Sweden (see Swedish police try to restore order in Stockholm after week of rioting by Anthony Lane in Stockholm and agencies posted 5/24/2013 on the guardian).

The riots have served as a sharp reminder that despite regular praise for its ‘Nordic model’ of progressive politics, relatively low unemployment and a generous social safety net, Sweden is not immune to the tension that festers in deprived communities…

Although the smashed windows of shops, two schools and the local library had yet to be replaced, locals of the 12,000-strong neighbourhood, which has an 80% immigrant population, said there had been no problems since 20 members of the local Islamic centre went around Husby to talk to the youths involved in the original disturbances.

“They told them that it had to stop and that they were scaring people,” said Abdul, a nurse in the local hospital after Friday prayers at the mosque.

“At the moment it’s very hard to get jobs – not just here but for everyone in Sweden,” said the Moroccan immigrant who had lived in Husby for 11 years. Having registered growth of 6.1% and 3.9% in 2010 and 2011 respectively, the Swedish economy slowed to just 0.8% last year, largely as a result of faltering exports to the eurozone. Residents born outside Sweden represent 15% of the country’s 9.5 million population, but account for 35% of those registered as unemployed…

Sweden’s relaxed immigration policy and generous asylum system has resulted in exceptionally high immigration levels over the last decade. In 2012, 82,000 non-Swedes migrated to the country – 44,000 of them were asylum-seekers. The country’s migration board expects to receive 54,000 asylum seekers in 2013, including around 20,000 Somalis.

Interesting.  Sweden was the perfect model of a progressive utopia.  Now the place is burning in riots.  What happened?  What changed?  Well, the biggest change appears to be “exceptionally high immigration levels over the last decade.”  Who although they make up only 15% of the country account for 35% of the unemployed.  Interesting.

If this was America the go-to response would be it’s because of racist employers who don’t want to hire immigrants.  Preferring to hire those illegally in the country so they can overwork and underpay them.  But this is Sweden.  So you can’t use the go-to response.  Because Sweden isn’t full of bigoted homophobes.  America has those.  And they’re called conservatives.  According to those on the left.  So what’s going on in Sweden?

It would appear a large percentage of those immigrants aren’t doctors, engineers, chemists, etc.  Instead they are largely uneducated young people with few appreciable job skills.  And can only perform menial labor.  Which doesn’t exactly thrill them.  And a lot of them have come from primarily Muslim countries.  Which tend to be male-centric.  Further angering them that they may only qualify for a job they feel someone beneath them should be doing.  Making them less eager to assimilate.  Preferring the company and the traditions of the country they fled.  And when they can’t even get those menial jobs you get mobs of angry young unemployed men roaming the streets.  Which rarely ends well.

The Americans should study closely what’s happening in Sweden before throwing open their borders.  Because it can happen here.  And already has.  The Boston Marathon bombers, for example, got to the U.S. as asylum seekers.  And let’s not forget how France burned in 2005.  Which was pretty much the same thing that just happened in Sweden.  The root of both of these riots was excessive immigration of low-skilled workers who suffered high unemployment in a jobless economy.  And a lack of assimilation.  Put these together and you get what happened in France in 2005.  And what happened in Sweden in 2013.  And what will happen in countries wherever they have large populations of low-skilled immigrants who feel alienated and don’t wish to assimilate.  Or can’t because they can’t find a job in a jobless economy.

FT166: “Multiculturalism celebrates are differences while breeding anti-American terrorists.” —Old Pithy

Posted by PITHOCRATES - April 19th, 2013

Fundamental Truth

The Entrepreneurial Spirit gave America the Economic Prowess to spend the Soviet Union into the Ash Heap of History

Immigrants used to come to the United States with great enthusiasm.  They were excited that they were going to be an American.  They wanted to assimilate.  They learned their American history.  Better than most people born in the United States.  When they took the oath of citizenship a euphoric joy filled them.  For having fulfilled their greatest dream.  If they heard their family members speak the language of their birth country they rebuked them sternly.  And told them, “We’re American now.  Speak English.”

Yes, there was great pride in becoming an American.  As immigrants saw America as Ronald Reagan saw it.  A shining city upon a hill.  Whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.  People in the Old World yearned for the freedom of the New World.  Religious freedom.  Freedom from an oppressive government.  Economic freedom.  Where everyone had the same chance to be whatever they wanted to be no matter who their parents were.  For in America there was no privilege.  Just hard work.  And the ability to keep the fruit of all your labors.  This is the American dream.  This is why they came to this shining city upon a hill.

Immigrants wanted to assimilate.  They wanted to think of themselves as Americans.  For it meant something.  Something special.  It meant you were a citizen of the greatest country in the world.  For individual liberty unleashed great prosperity.  An entrepreneurial spirit.  American ingenuity.  Making America the leader in new technology.  Making work less tedious.  And life more enjoyable.  Giving America the highest standard of living.  Great food surpluses that let America feed the world.  And the military power to defeat Nazism and stand up to communism.  And the economic prowess to spend the Soviet Union into the ash heap of history.

Our Public Schools teach our Children that we Stole the Land from the Native Americans and got Rich on Slave Labor

People came to America to be Americans.  They remembered their culture.  But their culture did not identify who they were.  They were Americans.  Not hyphenated Americans.  As Theodore Roosevelt said, “In this country we have no place for hyphenated Americans.”  We were not Italian-Americans.  We were not Polish-Americans.  We were not Irish-Americans.  We were not German-Americans.  We were Americans.

Our public schools once taught our children about the Founding.  The abuses of European monarchies.  Unjust taxation.  And the perverse powers of privilege.  Things the Founding Fathers found abhorrent.  The Founding Fathers knew the history of Greece and Rome.  King John and Magna Carta.  And the English Civil War was not that distant from their time.  They were students of the Enlightenment.  They read Adam Smith.  Believed in laissez-faire economics.  And championed limited government.  When they formed a new country they drew from this vast pool of knowledge.  And made the greatest country in the world.  One with religious freedom but based on Judeo-Christian values.  A country so great that rulers of other nations wanted to hinder its ascension to further greatness.  While the people living under those rulers wanted to be Americans.

This experiment in self-government had some growing pains.  We were not perfect.  But we were far more perfect than any other government out there.  But our public schools don’t teach that today.  Instead, they teach our children that the Founders stole the land from the Native Americans.  That we stole our southern land and California from the Mexicans.  Who gained their independence from Spain who colonized these lands.  Land they had stolen from the native people who were living on it at the time.  (Interestingly, when the Mexicans gained their independence from a European power the land belonged to the Mexicans.  But when the Americans gained their independence from a European power the land belonged to someone else.)  That we stole Cuba and the Philippines from the Spanish.  Who stole it from the people living on these lands when they arrived and stole it.  Yet it is the Americans who were an imperialist power stealing land.  Never the Mexicans or the Spanish.  And, of course, that America grew rich and powerful thanks to free slave labor.  Despite that very same economic system causing the South to lose the American Civil War.

The American Educational System failed to make Dzhokhar Tsarnaev NOT burn with a Seething Hatred of America

Then the attacks on capitalism came.  The system that made America great.  All of a sudden it was unfair.  It was unjust.  And it exploited the poor to help the rich get richer.  A better system was socialism.  For it was fair.  It was just.  Because it put people before profits.  (Just ask those who lived in the Soviet Union, the People’s Republic of China under Mao, North Korea, Cuba and the people who lived behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe how wonderful it was to live where they put people before profits.  Here’s a hint.  A lot of these people were shot while trying to escape their social utopia).  Unlike the most evil thing in the world.  The corporation.  Who underpaid their workers.  Raped the land of its natural resources.  And polluted the environment.  So not only were they evil for pursuing profits they were evil for exploiting both people and the planet.  So we needed more government to regulate capitalism.  And those evil corporations.  So our children learned the evils of capitalism and the goodness of government in our public schools and universities.  Where their teachers and professors taught them all of the badness of the United States.  While glossing over all of its goodness.  Imbuing some shame into our students for being American.  Even making some burn with a seething hatred of the United States.

And so began the diversity movement.  And multiculturalism.  If America was so shameful we should not celebrate what unified us as Americans.  But we should celebrate our differences.  We no longer celebrated the things people immigrated to the United States for.  But the things they fled in the countries they emigrated from.  We are no longer Americans.  We are now hyphenated Americans.  And it was the thing preceding the hyphen that made us great now.  Not being American.  Because America had a shameful past.  And had a long way to go to atone for her sins.  Making a lot of hatred of America now home-grown.  Especially in the American universities.  Where radicals from the Sixties who wanted to overthrow capitalism and replace it with socialism now write the curriculum.  And these radical professors disparaged judgmental Christianity every chance they could.  For they liked the sex and drugs of their Me generation.  Mocking the Judeo-Christian values that made America great.  Something those who were not Christians ate up.

So the American university system is a hotbed of anti-American sentiment.  Perhaps explaining why some of the greatest terrorist attacks on American soil were perpetrated by people educated in the United States.  Such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.  Architect and mastermind of a series of terrorist attacks.  Including the attacks on 9/11.  Who attended college in North Carolina.  Earning a degree in mechanical engineering.  And Anwar al-Awlaki.  Who earned a degree in civil engineering from Colorado State University.  He also studied education leadership at San Diego State University.  And worked on a doctorate at George Washington University.  Then moved to Yemen and became the Osama bin Laden of the Internet.  And then we have the Boston Marathon bombers.  Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  Who immigrated to the United States about a decade ago.  With Dzhokhar being so young he probably has no memories of his native Chechnya.  A hotbed of radical Islamist terrorism.  Locked in a bitter war with Christian Russia.  Where barbarous acts in that conflict have rivaled the atrocities of the Eastern Front in World War II.  Yet he burned with such a seething hatred of an America founded on Judeo-Christian values that he could place a bomb next to an 8 year old child.  A seething hatred he learned from someone while living in America.  Either directly from the American educational system.  Or indirectly as that educational system failed to make him NOT burn with a seething hatred of America.
