Å gjere sin del

Det er krise i nasjonen, og medan sorga brer seg, så er det òg dei som kastar seg rundt og legg seg i skyttargravene. Skuldkjensle over at dei har sagt dei same tingene som vår wannabetempelriddar gjer dei ivrige etter å kaste merksemda mot andre ting. Det må vere noko anna enn det openbare som har drive han. Boris Johnson vil til dømes helst at det handlar om undertrykt seksualitet.

Han om det.

Resten av oss må heller tenkje på kva vi skal gjere med dette. Korleis skal vi reagere framover? Nokon vil vere gode mot andre, medan andre vil plukke frå kvarandre manifestet. Beggje er gode løysingar, og eg støtter beggje. Andre vil konfrontere dei stygge ideane vi såg satt ut i live i går der ein finn dei. Det kan eg like. Vi skinn eit lys inn i mørkret når vi analyserar denne fjompen sitt såkalla manifest, og det gjer vi òg når vi tar hans likesinna på alvor. Møt deira påstandar med fakta, og deira hat med menneskelegheit. Det er mitt bod til dykk akkurat no.

Er du klar til å gjere din del, kva no enn det vert til?



I forbiparten kan eg nemne at eg har blitt intervjua eit par gonger dei siste gonger, om krisehandtering og sorgprosess på Twitter og Facebook, og det er ein del som har etterlyst å få sjå/høyre. Dei kan alltids snuble seg innom her, og hoppe 38 minutt fram i sendinga.

Eg er eigentleg frykteleg trøytt, så det er ikkje så mykje meir eg orker å seie akkurat no. Om de ikkje har lest innlegga til Øyvind Strømmen og Bjørn Stærk dei siste dagane, så gjer det!

  1. Mullah Hastur,

    From Boris Johnson he is serving us 'the received wisdom' about Muslims and Islam in quotation marks that Baroness Warsi talked about. We can agree with him that fanatics mirror each other though. The sexual repression theory is one of the many red herrings we shall hear. It is related to the identity politics that some homosexuals, like Bawyer, feel they must confront Muslims with. They should read their history and learn that homosexuals in Europe went south and east to experience their homosexuality (remember Oscar Wilde and how he was persecuted). The notion that Europe has always been sexually liberated is frivolous, although some old former social-democrat in Germany purveys Muslim sexual repression as the cause of all ills in that country. All of these, are the 'received wisdom' and, as you suggested, must be debunked.

    Another false 'received wisdom' that has generated all kinds of trouble around the world is this notion that Islam and Theocracy is equivalent. What was that Norwegian expression: som fanden leser Bibelen. Let's debunk this myth and create a better world for all of us loving human beings.

    Peace and Love,

    Cigaal

  2. The Fjordman and Anwar Al-Awlaki?
    What conclusion can we draw from these two? For those of you who don't know, Awlaki is the cleric accused of inciting the shooting murder of US soldiers in Texas by a psychiatrist. Anwar Awlaki incited a psychiatrist (what an irony) and is now the target for assassination by the US government. When this incident was reported, I went to youtube (my library lol) and listened to Awlaki's stuff. There was plenty of incitement in his twisted sermons alright, something to be cautioned about. In Texas, they shoot first and talk later.

    The Fjordman: can someone bring him to the Literaturhuset for a dialog meeting?

  4. Hey cigaal; thanks for your comments, I'm not sure that Identity politics play as big part in this as you might think. And part of that narrative is still that homosexuals were oppressed up until the present day (which, of course, is nonsense. As I've made clear previously, Oscar Wilde would still have been arrested today for buying sexual favours from underaged boytoys).

    As for mixing Islam with Theocracy, you are unfortunately quite right. I think people need a bit more Sufism in their life.

    As for Fjordman an Al-Awlaki... they're both hatemongers, who would do good to learn a bit of love for those different then themselves. Fjordman hides his identity well, he shuns the light.
