Muslim Brotherhood thugs and troglodytes shut down a speech at the University of London earlier this week because the speaker had ties to the Tamarod group. The Tamarod group opposes Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s ex-President and a member of the Brotherhood, and played a key role in his ouster last June. Approximately 30 thugs and troglodytes stormed the venue during the public discussion focusing on the challenges Egypt faces and forced the speaker off the stage, thus proving once again that the Brotherhood and its fellow Brownshirts have no interest whatsoever in dialogue and discussion or in allowing views that contradict their own to be presented and have every interest in preventing dialogue and discussion, in keeping contradictory views out of the public sphere and in preventing people from hearing them and learning from them.
That in turn means of course that the Muslim Brotherhood and its fellow Brownshirts have no interest whatsoever in freedom of speech and freedom of expression and that our right to express ourselves doesn’t exist if they don’t approve of whatever it is we’re trying to express and our right to listen to someone express themselves who isn’t toeing the party line doesn’t exist either as far as they’re concerned.
Episodes like the one at the University of London occur regularly and frequently throughout Britain and the rest of Europe and throughout the rest of the free world too, including in the United States. They are a frontal assault on two fundamental pillars of freedom and democracy, of Western civilization itself, freedom of speech and freedom of expression. They take place because the Muslim Brotherhood and their fellow Brownshirts know that freedom, democracy and Western civilization itself will die if freedom of speech and freedom of expression are lost.
Remember that next time someone tries to take away your right to express yourself freely or to prevent you from listening to someone who isn’t toeing the party line, next time a Muslim Brotherhood thug and troglodyte, an Islamist, a university professor, a brainwashed student, a purported feminist, a professional victim, a Brownshirt of any kind, an ignorant fool of any stripe or anyone else tries to shut you up or shut you out or demeans you or attacks you or attaches a label like Islamophobe to you because you have the temerity to disagree with them or to listen to someone who disagrees with them or because you want to learn more about what they’re on about. If you’re interested in free speech and freedom of expression, in freedom, democracy and Western civilization itself, you simply cannot allow them to get away with it.
If you’re interested in truly learning about something, if you’re interested in being allowed to think, you simply cannot allow let them to get away with it.
Speak out and fight back because if you don’t you soon won’t be allowed to, you soon won’t be allowed to do anything except toe the party line, you’ll soon be punished, perhaps even mutilated or killed, if you do anything that doesn’t toe the party line. Freedom needs to be fought for because if it isn’t fought for it will be lost. Your freedom, my freedom, anybody’s freedom. If you want to remain free you’ll have to exercize your freedom and speak out and fight back against those who would take it away from you, like the Muslim Brotherhood thugs and troglodytes in London, like their fellow Brownshirts everywhere.
Use it or lose it.
It really is as simple as that.
I am a free citizen in a free country. How dare they take my freedom away from me. How dare they even try.
