    You've defo been brainwashed
    What are you on about?
    Another poster asked why, if you despised western culture so much, you didn't locate to a country that implemented at least an approximation of Islamic rule.

    You said that it was not up to you (which clearly avoids the question).

    I asked what your decision would be if it was up to you. (Personally, I don't think that Muslims who despise western values should move elsewhere - it's up to them. But I know that I would not stay in a country where I despised the system and culture, if I had a choice).

    You still avoid the question.

    So, to get back to the point - how does that make me "brainwashed"?

    Kind of curious to see how long this goes on, but you missed one of her messages a few posts back. To be fair it was hidden in a 'spoiler' tab. You are on her 'ignore' list, didn't know we could do that.

    If people can systematically create their own 'safe space' by blocking others then why do so many of my posts get moderated to death?

    It is not for a central authority to regulate what can and cannot be said. That sounds very much like censorship and goes against the morality of education (present a diversity of views to push independent thinking; not push a certain agenda).



    This statement makes no sense. Please, elaborate.
    Its up to them what is or isnt said on their campus, because the students and staff represent the college as a whole. It is up to the college to decide how they want to be viewed. Put it like this, in britain, most schools have a uniform. What you do outside of school is completely your business but if you do it wearing the uniform then it becomes the schools business. In more uptight schools, if you are smoking, or drinking, in school umiform (even if youre 18) youre going to get in a load of trouble. The same goes for colleges, if you aere talking privately about your views then its nothing to do with them, but if you are airing yuour views publicly and making it clear what college you go , then its the colleges decisioon wherher theyre comfortable with that.

    What i mean about ignorant feminists is that actually they arent really causing any damage- whereas islamophobes are getting people fired anmd denired entry into the country, where 20 years back it wouldnt have happened.

    There are a few flaws with your argument. Firstly, you're assuming that students and associations are aligned with academics in how they want their institution to be perceived. This is simply not true, as shown by the countless examples of disagreements between students and management (e.g. Royal Holloway's controversial proposal to close its Classics Department). Secondly, not only does promoting free speech 'fit' in with the moral responsibility of a university it's also a legal imperative (see Education Act 1986).

    This makes absolutely no sense and I fail to see the relevance of this line of argument to the topic at hand.

    Does right wing media make up lies about Muslim migrants, or are they the only ones reporting certain stories that show them in a bad light?

    Here are a number of stories that only seem to have been reported by right-wing sources:

    Gang of migrants demanding respect smash way into Paris school:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Gang...efuse+to+leave

    Arabic speaker slashes French soldier in face:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=%27A...hrome&ie=UTF-8

    Migrant told victim "German women are just for sex":

    https://www.google.com/search?q=%22g..._AUICCgC&dpr=2

    Three migrants stone two transgender women in German street:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=migr...rome&ie=UTF-8#

    18 year old Kent girl alleges migrants gang raped her for three hours:

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016...ers-dosshouse/



    If you click on the links to the Google searches, you'll find close to solely right-wing sources reporting the stories. Do you believe this is all propaganda?
    Don't want to burst your bubble the sex attacks were the main news in BBC and the Guardian.

    The problem is nearly all the migrants are young single men.

    Ideally we should send them ALL back

    and instead take in the old, sick, infirm and mothers and toddlers.

    Single fit your men can look after themselves better than other groups. If we can only take limited numbers get rid of all the fit migrant men between the ages of 18 and 30.

    Of course they dont all agree but they discuss it and then they reach a decision. If girls can be sent away feom college for wearing tight clothes, then i think they can tell a racist to stop their whining.

    Sometimes right-wing websites make up stories about Muslims, yes. Like that mass child bride wedding in the Gaza Strip which never happened but was "reported" by the usual suspects.
    But the left wing media and left wing politicans covered up all the Rotherham sex abuse. Can people trust the left wing media to report islamic wrong doing fairly?

    If the left does not report someone has to? Surely?

    Interesting that you compare racism on campus to someone who is wearing tight clothes. I don't think you've fully grasped the implications of this idea. Regardless, please reply to my previous questions.

    It's a combination of things. On one hand the Right blow things out of proportion and paint everyone with the same brush, while on the other the Left bury their heads in the sand and pretend the same problems don't exist.
    I never understood this. Why people are always labelled left or right, and why they must be at heads with each other all the time.

    I personally am for immigrants, if not solely for helping where we can. And yet I am also against mass immigration - there is a limit to how many we can help - and I have very strong views regarding the treatment of immigrants. If they do not want to accept our cultural norms and values, then they may leave. If they then protest about them or carry out such attacks, deport the ****ers.

    Hi, I'm Muslim. I don't think they make up the stories but they do exaggerate them (it's their job) and purposely use degrading words and amplify statistics. But, I don't understand why many of the immigrants are male who should be 'fighting for their country' (according to their culture and religion). Where are all the kids, elderly, mothers etc. they're the ones who need the help, plus, I strongly doubt they'd rape and terrorize people. The UK and the rest of Europe shouldn't be controlling all Muslim immigration but rather just male Muslims entering. Also, I resent when people confuse Muslim immigrants with Muslims who've lived here for 20-30+ years and respect the rules of the country.

    It's interesting because I've asked you something and you've resorted to insults like you do with other people who challenge you. It's hilarious and childish.

    Of course there's nobody to join. Because all the men have run to Europe!

    Oh I'm sorry and you know what their actual intentions are? Didn't realise babe why don't you ask the Syrian migrant who groped my sister when she was in Germany? I'm sure I'd LOVE to know what he's been through before he started catcalling random women on the streets of Cologne.
    You don't challenge anyone.

    You make up unsubstantiated, inflammatory claims that just exasperate people. You are like a kid that continuously asks their parents "but why" and think that that is "challenging" someone.

    And you actually believe that that migrant's sole intention when making that ridiculous dangerous journey to Europe was so that he could cat-call women? You're deluded.

    ps not to mention I don't think anyone with half a brain believes that part about your sister.

    They certainly run negative stories far more but I think it was The Sun that ran a article saying 1 in 4 UK Muslims supported ISIS and the survey company they commissioned had to issue a statement saying that they never asked that. What they asked was "do you feel sympathy for those fighting in Syria?" and the Sun just made the rest up. As a result without seeing what questions were asked verbatim I don't trust those sorts of stats in papers anymore.

    Nevertheless the Deobandi controls around 45 per cent of Britain’s mosques and nearly all the UK-based training of Islamic scholars. What most Deobandi scholars have in common is a conservative interpretation of Islamic law: Women are advised not to emerge from their homes any more than is necessary.

    Religions can be at odds from liberalism. When it affects ordinary womens lives I think it is important that the liberal press kick back hard, very hard. No point pussy footing around, if its wrong shout from the root tops that its wrong.

    PEGIDA have had so much support since the migrant crisis so reporting these events just adds fuel to the fire.

    I've never understood some of the logic of some migrants- They make a big fuss about how they escaped a war but then they come here and show no respect to Western culture.
    Most asylum seekers are just economic migrants aka piss takers looking to get what they can get. You can't exactly expect respect from people like that.

    The problem is that extremes are taking over rational, biased discussions. College campuses are stifling open discussion; corporations are too scared to be associated with individuals who make comments that don't fit the 'norm' and the 'establishment' simply dismiss criticism as bigotry. Far too many SJWs fit into this category where rather than balancing the odds, they simply shift it to another extreme. We see this with feminism, for example. A noble movement that initially pushed for equality is now represented primarily by ignorant and regressive individuals who fail to use evidence to back their statements (see the debate on the pay gap). This is equally idiotic on the Right, where individuals such as Trump make statements, say, about trade or immigration without understanding the statistics. Acting as a voice for the minority is one thing; but imposing such voices on others is idiotic.

    So, you're right in that discussion and listening to other people is necessary but on both ends of the political spectrum we are facing bigots who simply refuse to listen to other people, let alone agree with them.
    That is actually a really insightful post. Have to say that I couldn't agree more. Especially the bolded part. That riles me up. Because they basically undermine their own agenda. They want immigrants, they want to help, that's great, and I support that. But how does that idea imply there should be blanket acceptance of all of these immigrants? I don't get it and if they would show both a desire to help but also a willingness to enforce that immigrants conform to our values, then there would be a lot less outrage and parties like AfD would have a lot less support.

    Yes but what do you believe?
    All you have said is "What you do not believe".

    That is called "PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE" - you have knocked the other side hard but not allowed them to counter in any meaningful way. You have left no room for a meaningful dialogue with your views.

    From Pew Research via Wikipedia:

    In a 2007 Pew Research poll in response to a question on whether suicide bombing and other forms of violence against civilian targets to defend Islam could be justified,[29] in Europe:
    • (36 vs 64) 64% of Muslims in France believed it could never be justified, 19% believed it could be justified rarely, 10% sometimes, and 6% thought it could be justified often.
    • (30 vs 70) 70% of Muslims in Britain believed it could never be justified, 9% believed it could be justified rarely, 12% sometimes, and 3% thought it could be justified often.
    • (17 vs 83) 83% of Muslims in Germany believed it could never be justified, 6% believed it could be justified rarely, 6% sometimes, and 1% thought it could be justified often.
    • (31 vs 69) 69% of Muslims in Spain believed it could never be justified, 9% believed it could be justified rarely, 10% sometimes, and 6% thought it could be justified often.

    I've never heard of that first statistic tbh. Sexism is a common theme in ALL Muslim households, mosques etc. It's inevitable. The dress codes required by Muslim women alone screams sexism to me. Men who go to these mosques enjoy going because it feeds their fragile masculine ego when they're constantly (obliquely) told that they're better than women or to control women. When a woman defends herself, she's told her faith is weak & to go read religious scriptures. She'd be lucky if she weren't already dead in some cultures.

    Most religions in general are extremely conservative and the liberal press is too scared to say anything about Islam especially because they don't want to be viewed as racists or Islamaphobes. Even though it's not racist to morally disagree with certain ideologies, the votes seem to matter more to them.
