The slippery slope argument is being used increasingly with regard to the migrant issue. This argument assumes firstly, that we are actually on a
slope. I have not seen any evidence of being on a slope.
Secondly, proponents of this type of argument can only tell you what they see at the bottom of the slope. When you ask them to describe other levels
on this downward slope ie how we get to the bottom, they are most often than not, either lost for words or they describe concepts that cannot be
substantiated in the real world eg show how A leads to B then C etc.
Under-age marriage, sharia law for all and the prohibition of alcohol will never be accepted by the British public. As for allowing bigamy with
Muslims, you can blame that on modern liberalism and PC nonsense. You cannot cherry-pick equality.
The current conservative government are no better. Only a few days ago someone described Cameron as the best leader the LibDems never had. Very
You asked why the government is not stopping hate speech. You should read Brendan O’Neill's recent article below on why we must have the freedom to
hate. Its primarily directed at university campuses but still very relevant.
We must have the freedom to hate
Censorship doesn’t tackle, far less defeat, ugly views; it just pushes them aside. It has the terrible double effect of allowing the hateful
ideology to fester and grow — unchallenged, unexposed — while depriving the rest of us of the ability, and right, to see, know and dent that
ideology. It strengthens the haters, convincing them their idea must be really challenging if it freaks out society so much, and it weakens the
right-thinking, absolving us of the human duty to stand up to what we think is wrong.
Last week I watched a video of a young petite British lady who bravely went to an Islamic march and verbally challenged several individuals on the
march eg why they will not accept British values and integration. This lady was passionate enough to go and confront what she believes to be wrong in
a non-threatening and non-derogatory way. I admire her for doing that.
I agree with Brendan that people who hate are passionate about their beliefs. We need to be just as passionate about British values, our way of life
and our freedom. Defending this is not
racist or Islamophobic despite what the PC mob say. If we have more of the likes of the lady above and
less armchair protests maybe we can
make our voices be heard during these hate marches. Sadly most of the British public would not
inconvenience themselves or venture outside their little bubbles.
