Does decency preclude survival?
December 2008 entry
a reader in England, who has always opposed my idea that Muslims in the West must depart, wrote:
It is liberal to encourage Muslims to come here or to ignore their immigration buildup; that I understand. But once Muslims are here is it liberal or conservative to treat them (with decency and respect) as you would you would anybody else. Or would conservatives not do that?
It’s not a matter of decency and respect. There’s nothing in what I’ve said that implies treating individuals indecently and disrespectfully, and you won’t find anything in what I’ve written that treats or suggests treating individuals indecently or disrespectfully. It’s a matter of seeing that Muslims in significant numbers do not belong among us, should not have been allowed in, and should leave.

If in a moment of hippie élan you invited all your neighbors to move into your house, and later you snapped out of it and realized that this was a big mistake, this wasn’t viable, and you told them that they had to leave and go back to their own homes so that you could have your home back, would that mean that you were treating them indecently and without respect? That’s what we have to do with Muslims in the West. They don’t belong here. They belong in their home, not in our home.
When you said this:

I thought about all the reading I have done at your site since 2007 and this statement rings true. A disrespect of select individuals, even though it is doubtless inferred by some readers, is not even implied in your writings. The fervent pursuit of truth necessarily clashes with those who defend a worldly philosophy. This liberal opposition is unaccustomed to such strong language as you use regularly, and often embraces shrill, weak argumentation when they are on the warpath.
As for my previous remark that I was going to give VFR reading a rest for a while, I can start tomorrow.
