More voluntary dhimmitude

A follow-up to Sunday's post, "The Dhimmi Mindset":

The city museum of The Hague has decided not to include in an exhibition a work of art that may offend Muslims, it was reported on Monday.

The picture, made by Iranian artist Sooreh Hera, is entitled Adam and Ewald and shows two gay men wearing masks of the Muslim prophet Mohammed and his son-in-law Ali.

It is part of a photoseries the Gemeentemuseum has included in the 7up exhibition due to open on December 15.

The Gemeentemuseum's director Wim van Krimpen told reporters the museum is interested in purchasing Hera's complete series, which he called "high quality works of art".

However, he added he will not exhibit Adam and Ewald in the next few years because "certain people in our society might perceive it as offensive".

Note that word "might". Apparently no Muslim has actually kicked up a fuss - but they don't need to. The good dhimmis across Western Europe will now voluntarily censor themselves, rather than risk even the slightest possibility of Muslims getting upset.

Of course, it is quite probable that the depiction of Mohammed as an incestuous homosexual would offend Muslims. That would still not be a reason for prohibiting it, and it would be base cowardice to refuse to show a "work of art", simply because it upset Muslims. But automatic, unquestioning self-censorship of the kind seen here is still more cowardly, and more contemptible.

I wonder if he'll pause and then self-censor should another 'Piss Christ' come his way...? I wouldn't put money on it!

Isn't the "dhimmitude mindset" an inevitable condition of the spinelessness which develops in a climate of opinion that has been created by lefty- liberalism?

Looked at impartially, the appeasement of Muslim "sensibilities" is a logical consequence of the fatuous premise that all cultures and religious beliefs deserve equal deference.

Damn right there alex. You see these days God (for liberals) is Other People. Universal Human Rights is communion with the infinite through the endowment of others with rights.

My dear friend and fellow BNPer

It might be hard to imagine but there are people in the BNP who want to tarnish our name and its image. We can suppose that there are plenty of riff raff in the labour and conservative and respect and libdims parties who hate us and our aims who want to screw us but people in our own party who want to screw us and damage us is more difficult to get your head round.

Such people do exist and im going to give you some photographic evidence taken at the annual conference in blackpool which shows two people who think they are clever but are complete idiots and acted in a way which broke the security code of conduct which everyine else at blackpool saw fit to adhere to.

the pictures were taken by the left wing riffraff who shouted "nazi scum" at a building for 50 minutes before sloping off to the pubs but the pictures are genuine and havent been messed about with.

You will recognize the two window lickers in the picture about 3/4 of the way down the page as david hannem and mark collette. did you know that these two are your leaders? well they are! they are on the advisory council and are heads of departments. Hannem is in charge of treasury and collette is in charge of all publicity matters. not good publicity though is it? its the 13th pic down the list - unlucky for some hey?!

talking about messing about did you know that these are the two persons who brought back two 13 year old schoolgirls to the kimberley hotel for sex at last year conference but were rumbled by security who got the two little girls out of the hotel before they could have their wicked way? they got a severe doing down for that but isnt it disgusting that there are two BNP members out there who could even think of doing this kind of thing. worth bearing in mind if you are bringing your children along to the RWB next year.

if you had to drive hundreds of miles down or up or across to blackpool and paid the money for the weekend and you adhered to the security code of conduct then you can ask why aint these two idiots even getting a talking to for this stupidity?

im keeping my kids away from the RWB next year if these kiddy fiddlers are still party members, im staying away from the annual conference if these two chimps are going to put my life in danger and my mates and the hotel staff in danger.

i got your email address from the bnp website but this should be put around to many more people - its the truth and its not just out there as they say in xfiles but its in here (BNP) as well.

yours for race and nation

Here are a few more crooks (Livingstone and Jasper) worthy of much loathing and contempt.
