Australia: Hirsi Ali cancels visit after Islamists threaten “trouble,” call her “white supremacist”

Claire LehmannAustralian Contributor

Prominent author and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali has pulled out of her visit to Australia due to security concerns. The organization hosting her – Think Inc – has been subject to harassment over her scheduled appearance for months.

Think Inc told The Australian that its insurance company and the venues Hirsi Ali was scheduled to speak at had been contacted and threatened with “trouble”.

Much of this was done by the Council for the Prevention of Islamophobia.

They released a video in which a “Muslim feminist” said these security threats against Hirsi Ali were simply about holding her accountable, and the threats were an “opportunity for Hirsi Ali to rethink her position.”

Here are women with Australian accents accusing Hirsi Ali of white supremacy. Islamists are co-opting the language of Black Lives Matter to silence a woman of Somali origin.

They don’t address any of Hirsi Ali’s arguments, simply attack and slander her, and unlike the women in this video, those Hirsi Ali advocates for aren’t women whose rights are protected by Australian law.

And when Councils for the Prevention of Islamophobia physically threaten venues and organizations for hosting speakers like Hirsi Ali in a country such as Australia, we should all be treating this as a wake up call.

Ayaan Hirsi is one of the greatest feminist who has ever lived. I first encountered her while walking through Indigo upon the release of “Infidel.” We should ask Heather Reisman to invite her back!

It should be remembered, the Australian PM, just like our own, was put into power by the UN. In other words Saudi Gold. This is why Australia has a very bad problem with Muslims. Ayaan is very close to the top of the Muslim Hit List.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is clearly not a White Supremacist!

What she is is a Western Cultural Supremacist.

Most of us on here would largely agree with her on this, I suspect.
I’m certainly quite happy to identify as a Western Cultural Supremacist.
It’s odd that it takes someone form a non-Western culture to realise what most people in the West don’t realise themselves!

Traditional (as opposed to new-leftist) Western culture has room for people like her, because we value people for their values, not their race.

Idiot leftists / BLM types don’t realise the difference between race and culture, hence their labelling of her as a “White Supremacist”.

There are also some white racists old the traditional variety who make the same mistake. Whenever I get the chance, I do my best to educate them about how the problems that they have with other “races” are actually problems with “cultures”. What I’m getting at is that a lot of traditional racists aren’t fundamentally bad people or even half as blind as leftist-racists: they just misidentify the source of the problems (often due to a limited sample size in their personal environment) that they observe as being race, as opposed to culture. I’ve had some success in this – it’s one of the few areas where it seems possible to change someone’s mind. Incidentally, I’ve had no luck in doing the same with anti-semites, which seems to be caused more by a mental illness than racism, which in many cases turns out to be an erroneous and correctable conflation of race and culture. People like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, in my opinion, go a LONG way to STOPPING racism, unlike idiots like BLM, who actually make it worse.

Again, who the F asked you to come here (I know, other than PM Zoolander and his communist cronies)? Last time I checked there are what, 50+ Muslim majority countries? Go back to the tropical paradise of Somalia if the west is such a racist, misogynistic, hole. Oops, Somalia likely doesn’t give baby bonuses and payments for sitting on your a$$ all day. My parents came from a former communist country. Guess what? They didn’t complain about the lack of accommodation for communists (well, PET was PM so I guess they didn’t have to). In all honesty I don’t blame Muslims. I blame the communist scum who are using them to destroy their own civilization (that they happily take their fake, government jobs for life, from).

Well done Claire Lehman, this is horrifying in it deviance and full on attack from the “religion of peace.” Of course, only women are presented to disparage Ayaan, the men would say much worse, I think. It is also shocking that they use all the buzz words of the “progressives” as if they are in solidarity with them. The left will pay for their mistake in thinking these women are any more than recordings of what they were told to say about Ms.Hirsi Ali. What a scam, thanks for the report, very informative.

You can always tell who the REAL bigots and fascists are, they are the ones who will not debate and shout slurs and make threats instead.

Claire Lehman, excellent report. I couldn’t agree more with your assessment of the situation. Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaks the truth, and her antagonists hate that; they want to shut down her talks to prevent people from hearing her extremely valid point of view . Her life has been under threat for many years, and we are lucky she has remained safe (at a high personal cost to Ayaan). My prayers are with her.
