THE FLUSH CONTINUES: COULD IT HAPPEN HERE?
In an article earlier this month – Britain Continues To Flush Itself Down The Multiculturalism Toilet – I wrote about the shocking societal changes occurring in Jolly Old England in deference to its ever-growing Muslim population – at the expense of British culture. Now comes word that Ofcom – the regulatory agency which oversees UK broadcasting rules relating to “viewer harm and offense” – may launch an investigation into BBC1’s Citizen Khan, a comedy about a modern Asian family, after receiving complaints that it stereotypes Muslims and insults Islam. Seriously. (Is Benny Hill rolling over in his grave?)
From The Guardian:
The TV regulator has received about 20 complaints about the sitcom, which debuted on BBC1 in Monday night, and is now assessing them. Ofcom will then make a decision as to whether the complaints warrant a formal investigation to see whether the BBC has broken any UK broadcasting rules relating to viewer harm and offence.
The BBC had received 187 complaints by Tuesday about the show, which follows the life of a self-appointed “Muslim community leader” and his British-Pakistani family in Birmingham, following its broadcast.
Wait a minute – a Muslim community
organizer leader? Okay, that was a cheap shot – but this is serious stuff. It’s also another example of how far this once fiercely independent country has bowed to the pressures of multiculturalism – or, more correctly, Islam. The question is, has the UK done so out of a desire for inclusivity – or out of fear? I suspect the latter.
The larger question, of course, is, could what we’re seeing in Great Britain – as well as in multiple other European countries – happen here? We’ve seen school systems begin to teach “Islam tolerance” classes. (Funny – I don’t recall running across any “Christian tolerance” classes lately.) We’ve seen grade schools in New York introduce Arabic classes into their curriculums. What’s next? Musn’t offend the Muslims, you know.
While the Fairness Doctrine has been tossed into the regulatory dustbin of history – for now – would it surprise anyone if a future Democrat Party – in control of both chambers of Congress and the White House – ramrodded revised (and more ominous) “fairness” legislation through again? They haven’t forgotten about it, America – and they won’t.
Less than four years ago, I would’ve said that the possibility of events occurring in the UK today could be thinkable in America were zero. After the last four years, I’m not so sure.
