What will eventually happen if you demonize people who are afraid of Muslim terrorism, or anyone who has a legitimate concern about sharia law creeping into our society? What if hundreds, then thousands, then millions of people are told to shut up — but their concerns are not dealt with?
If ordinary people can’t protect themselves using the system, maybe other less liberal sorts will fill the gap.
I’ll tell you about an obscure terrorist group called the Corsican National Liberation Front, or FLNC. They want the island of Corsica to be free from France. They’ve blown up French government buildings and killed people. They’re in the middle of a ceasefire now.
But an FLNC faction issued a statement last week. Not against the government of France.
But rather, against Muslim terrorists, not to try anything in Corsica.
And you know what?
I bet plenty of Corsicans were pleased with this.
Because the French, like every other western European country, have failed.
In Scandinavia, there are vigilantes, calling themselves the Soldiers of Odin, patrolling the streets, to protect women from being sexually attacked by Muslim migrants.
Is that a good thing? People taking the law into their own hands?
Of course not. Far better for the police to take care of protecting us, to have a border, for politicians to speak clearly about western values.
But that's not happening.
