“Social Estrangement” to be Avoided at All Costs
Two posts come to mind from the past week exhibiting the “fear of offending” prevalent in Europe.
First, JihadWatch relays a report from Turkey (bold mine):
ISTANBUL – The top appeals court has upheld a lower court’s decision to be lenient on those who are found guilty of honor killing because the two families in Diyarbakr involved in the case faced social estrangement if they had not acted as they did.
And in a topic hitting closer to home, Ed West at the Telegraph comments on Michael Savage’s exclusion from Brittain:
Our joke of a Home Secretary called Savage “someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country.”
Be afraid, folks. Be very afraid.
