Ed Miliband, Labour Party politician and wanna-be prime minister of the UK, wants to make Islamophobia a crime. Roger Kimball takes a close look at this madness here.
Hey, why stop there, Ed? If stamping out phobias is your bag, think big.
But of course this isn’t really about a genuine “phobia”; it’s about proscribing attitudes, thoughts and speech that might otherwise enable sensible people to convert their perfectly rational concerns into effective policies of defense against a largely unassimilable minority that includes not only a core of cold-blooded murderers who seek to destroy their host, but also a larger number of sympathizers and enablers who brazenly claim victimhood status, thereby providing cover for the fire-breathing fanatics in their midst and utterly confounding Britain’s mush-headed bureaucracy and pusillanimous, wrong-headed intelligentsia.
Evil is destructive, perfect evil is ultimately self-destructive - which is why, whether or not Miliband is crazy, his proposal is positively wicked.
