They took down the Christmas at my hometown high school because someone was offended.

People on Facebook are trying to get protest together. I am looking forward to hearing the hot takes of my friends who work at the high school.

Is it intolerant to be intolerant of the intolerant? I say no.

We have two options:

Be intolerant of muslims and other groups whose intention is not to assimilate but to dominate, maintain our otherwise tolerant culture and take the criticism.

Tolerate muslims etc who seek to impose their views over everyone elses, and end up in a less tolerant situation than before.

I'm fine with option 1. If muslims don't like it they're free to live in muslim countries or pick another cult.
Its fine to be intolerant of Nazis, white supremacists etc, I'm fine with not tolerating brown supremacists too, they aren't a special case.

"But they just want to quietly get along"
They don't, as soon as they achieve critical mass in a country they seek to dominate they start agitating and throwing their weight around.
"the muslim family living in massachusetts" will quietly support the cleric in Saudi Arabia.
This.


I will also follow it up and say Coptic Egyptians and Christian Lebanese are fine people. Our country should do more to protect those people even if that means letting them immigrate.

sounds like your local council has a problem with hysteria. 'not allowed xmas this year because of muslims' is a tabloid-level scare story around here.

an actually interesting story is that loads of local councils in the UK are not bothering with decorations or lights because of austerity. it's seen as a reckless expense after 5+ years of continual cuts to funding. bloody muslims!!!!111 they're ruining christmas!

that and a lot of snobbery about christmas celebrations -- from the middle-class white locals. damn the imams and their mosques! murdering jesus!

yes, i agree. the phalangists were very fine people. christians need to be protected at all costs. they are the innocent, unstained peoples of the middle east.

These white middle class, christian high school kids need to be protected, they never go on mass shooting sprees!

In the UK there's been what 5 "Islamic" terrorist attacks since 2000, and that's about it in the way people talk about that threat now.

In 2000-1 alone there about 3 by the real ira, and the in 1990's we're into 20's at least.

Funny thing about that part of the Bible is that there are no historical records that collaborate that story.

Does the West’s obsession with Vladimir Putin prevent it from genuinely understanding Russia? In Russia Without Putin (Verso), LRB contributor and Russophile Tony Wood argues that the core features of Putinism—a predatory, authoritarian elite presiding over a vastly unequal society—are integral to the system set in place after the fall of Communism, a legacy of Yeltsinism rather than a resurgence of Soviet authoritarianism.   Tony Wood was in conversation with James Meek, LRB Contributing Editor and author of Private Island (Verso).
