A grade school in the Bavaria region of Germany has told parents to cover up their pre-teen daughters so as not to tempt the young male Syrian refugees, who are currently residing in their gym.
In a letter from Headmaster Martin Thalhammer, “The Syrian citizens are mainly Muslims and speak Arabic. The refugees are marked by their own culture. Because our school is directly next to where they are staying, modest clothing should be adhered to, in order to avoid discrepancies. Revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings.”
And further, “When Muslim teenage boys go to open-air swimming pools, they are overwhelmed when they see girls in bikinis.”
The commentary from other conservative pundits is revealing. Chicks on the Right call this a “rape culture,” where the girls are required to change their behavior because these Muslim boys cannot control themselves in presence of bare skin. In other words, if a rape occurs, its the girl’s fault.
Rightwing News called this “Suicide for the West,” meaning the pockets of Muslim culture could enlarge and eventually overwhelm Western society and radically change Western norms.
Authors Commentary: This a disturbing but not un-expected kind of incident. In both Western Europe and the U.S., we bend over backward to accommodate Islam, to the point of making substantial adjustments to our culture in their presence. It’s considered polite, and it’s the enlightened thing to do, to accommodate those not able to understand as well as we do
A phrase was mentioned to me the other day “the soft racism of low expectations.” If we are inviting these people into our country (and we are!) shouldn’t we hold them to the same standards as we do our own citizens? Or are we making excuses for them, assuming they are not intelligent enough, or are handicapped in some way. Rather than make these unsavory compromises, shouldn’t we just hold them to our standard in our own country?
And why would we allow a culture to fester in our midst where the leadership class despises American culture and indeed calls for its destruction? It’s true you know, and the rules and timetable for our destruction are laid out in the Koran and supporting religious works (For example, you can only tolerate non-believers for about 10 years, after that you are required to attack and convert them forcibly).
A smarter strategy might be to insist they abide by our customs and laws. If you see through the “soft racism” you may realize these are thinking, reasoning human beings, not animals. They can control themselves if they must (as do most Muslims born in the U.S. – imagine that!).
Islam is perhaps the most dynamic society on Earth, expanding (through conquest and progeny) faster than any other population. Europe and America both already have areas that enforce Sharia law, the brutal and oppressive laws of Islam. Over the next 30-50 years, without intervention, these areas will become larger and more powerful, effectively executing a successful long term infiltration into our country. As the Muslim population expands to exceed their productive capabilities, there will be more wars, and more refugees.
The backbone principles of our society, democracy, capitalism and our constitutional guarantees, have made us a rich and free nation. Shouldn’t our culture be the standard and not the compromise?
