Well known Canadian Moderate Tarek Fatah had this to say when I asked him how he would respond to O’Reilly’s statement:
Does a drug addict not want to take drugs? Would O’reilly defend the right of addicts to stay hooked to cocaine?
In an article, Fatah also had this to say about the burqa which should teach O’Reilly something about its symbolism:
The burka is not just a piece of clothing: It is a symbol of Islamofascism and a rejection of the West and its cherished value of gender equality. The cruel reality is that the burka implicitly castigates women as a source of evil ( a’wra), condemning them to a life of isolation away from the gaze of men.
Fatah was responding to a burqa ban (Bill 94) that Quebec introduced, which was opposed by leftist groups. Bill O’Reilly has traditionally been an admirable force to reckon with in chastening leftist ideologues, of which many were assigned to the category of “Pinheads.” As Dr. Jamie Glazov pointed out in his article, O’Reilly made himself into a Pinhead. I only hope that O’Reilly will contemplate the harm that he has done to a critical cause and correct it so that he can return to the status of Patriot in this context. His defense of the burqa is particularly damaging to the battle faced in Multicultural Canada where according to the Multicultural Act all cultures are deemed equal, making it tougher to address destructive ideologies imported from abroad.
Editor’s note: To get the whole story behind why our culture is reluctant to come to the aid of suffering and tortured Muslim women, and to be honest about the Islamic theology that engenders their plight, read Jamie Glazov’s most recent book, “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror.”
