George Takei: Islamophobia vs Anti-Muslim Bigotry vs ‘The Muslim Community’

A while back, George Takei signed a petition called:

Stand Up for Muslims in the U.S

However, this petition has a clear metropolitan bias.

On the one hand, it’s good to see that Takei doesn’t use the word ‘Islamophobia.’

A word invented by fascists, used by cowards, to manipulate morons.

But on the other hand, it’s disappointing to see how uses the collectivist dog whistle ‘Muslim community,’ which is generally used to imply that Muslims share a collectivist interest and are a collective agent.

Interestingly enough, it is precisely this fabulous monolithic community that is postulated by people like the British National Party and English Defence League in common with their best frenemies in the other far right faction which is at issue here; the Islamists.

So also do the myriad fellow travellers and useful idiots of the latter faction; or as  Maajid Nawaz of the Quilliam Foundation calls them, the ‘Regressive Left.’

So, a bit of a mixed bag really! But the refusal to use the idiotic Brotherhood dog whistle ‘Islamophobia’ is a small (arguably) highly significant victory.

Riyadh wasn’t abolished in a day!

Let’s hope Muslims and non-Muslims alike can succeed in pushing the rhetoric of the Lesser Jihad into the shadows, and keep it there forever!

People of all faiths and none, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, have too much to lose from the collectivist agenda of violent extremists.
