It is so very hard to remain optimistic given recent developments on the free speech front.
It's extremely discouraging to plow through the news and once again, come to the conclusion that the Western world is chock full of spineless, pathetic eunuchs who are afraid of their own dhimmified shadows.
Why, you might ask, am I feeling so terribly discouraged?
Let me count the ways:
"Shut up, they explained," says the great Instapundit of the call to deny Geert Wilders a visa to enter the United States.
They can only bully with their bureaucratic might because their ideas are worthless and disgusting and they cannot win the battle of ideas.
Meanwhile, back in Eurabia, did you know denial was a river in France?
France, where even the brave Charlie Hedbo cartoonists, with their comrades' blood still staining their office walls and floors, decide that Mohammad cartoons are now "uninteresting".
And this, this made my blood boil:
Idiot liberal Jew Irwin Cotler wants to criminalize hate speech. Again, another cowardly social justice engineer who cannot win a battle of ideas, and can only force people to censor their thoughts. Shame on this radical fool.
What is it with these evil Jews who refuse to learn the lessons of history?
Oh right: IT'S THE LIBERALISM, STUPID.
Everything: facts, history, and Jewish tradition, Jewish history and Jewish smarts, everything, including the well-being of their own kin, is secondary to The Liberalism. What a shameful, pathetic man.
Fortunately, there are at least a few Britons who have refused the demand to cut their own nuts off and commit suicide.
As I say, a tough time to remain optimistic but not impossible.
So, does that mean it's time to throw in the towel?
Never, ever, ever, give up.
