DRUGS AND ISLAM
... both will eat away at your moral compass
Harry Richardson is a long-time student of Islam and author of best seller, "the Story Of Mohammed - Islam Unveiled', http://thestoryofmohammed.blogspot.com.au
I have to admit to misspending at least some of my youth. My friends were no angels. Many of them smoked pot. The more adventurous ones would occasionally take some speed or LSD. I wouldn’t describe it as “harmless” fun but, with a few notable exceptions, it was mostly under some sort of control.
Heroin was different. Everyone knew it was a potential death sentence. At least I thought they did. I remember very clearly when the heroin epidemic arrived in England. It was Christmas 1982.
Suddenly it was everywhere.
At first it was just the crazies. You would expect these idiots to do something that stupid. Slowly but surely however, people you never thought would be so stupid began to get sucked into that destructive world. Some of them were good friends of mine, really good friends.
It was heart breaking to watch. First you would try to help them, you knew they were worth saving. You tried everything. You gave them every bit of help you could. After losing half your valuables to trusted friends a few times over however, it was clearly time to wise up.
Heroin isn’t just an addiction. It eats away at people’s moral compasses. They become capable of justifying any behaviour to feed their addiction. Junkies will sell their own grandmothers just to get that next hit.
Many didn’t survive. Overdoses, AIDS and other “at risk” behaviours took a dreadful toll. Many did survive however and their stories were often quite similar.
They would reach a point of absolute desperation and depravity. Perhaps waking up on the floor of a public toilet covered in excrement with a needle hanging out of their arm. Finally they would be hit with a realisation of how low they had sunk.
They would realise that if they didn’t take drastic steps right there and then, that they would soon become just another sad statistic. This was the point at which many of them would turn their lives around.
This is common for people with destructive habits. Not just heroin but alcoholism, gambling or whatever. It also seems to be common in other societies too. Often we have to reach points of utter desperation before we make the decision to turn things around.
My own feeling is that we are reaching that point in a number of areas. Finally, I am starting to see signs that people are so fed up that they are finally starting to do something about it.
I know many people still think I am wildly optimistic in my prediction that Islam will be finished within ten to fifteen years.
Have a look around you however and think about where we are now and how things have changed.
Poor old Craig Laundy has just been appointed the Assistant Minister for Multiculturalism. The first thing he did was to take a swipe at people who are opposed to Islam, saying they are “not well informed.” A couple of years ago, this would have been accepted without comment by everyone in authority and 99 % of those of us who aren’t. Instead, it set off a firestorm of protest on social media.
Thousands of well-informed Australians flamed his twitter and facebook accounts accusing him of idiocy and dhimmitude. Senate candidate Kirralie Smith tweeted him and journalist Chris Kenny, offered to debate him on Chris’s show. Chris Kenny thought this was a great idea. Laundy went very, very quiet.
Meanwhile over at the ABC, Political Editor Chris Uhlmann recently wrote an excellent piece which was published in the Australian. In it he described his own realisation of how bad things have become after tweeting in favour of free speech. Unfortunately, the speech he was referring to didn’t agree with the progressive agenda.
He copped such a barrage of hatred that he was left in a state of shock. What amazed me was that in his article, he accurately linked this “progressive tyranny” to the work of the radical left who took control of our education system decades ago.
Across the pond meanwhile, in the good ol’ US of A, Donald Trump is romping through the Republican primaries and doing to his rivals what Facebook did to Myspace.
If he wins he will be up against one of two Democrats, both of whom look unelectable to me. The Donald doesn’t just challenge political correctness, he turkey slaps it.
He has promised to put a halt on Islamic immigration (hijira) until we can figure out what is going on.
Everyone thought he would have to back away from this. The press began the usual howling indignation. Instead, he charged head on and “quell surprise!” his popularity soared.
People have finally had a gutful of the agenda of the radical left. They look around and realise how low we have sunk. We have become like the national equivalent of the destitute junkie.
My own point where I said, “enough” was after reading about an incident in Cumbria in England. A young Englishman left the British Army and decided to apply to join the police force. He passed all the tests and exams and was sent for a medical.
When he took his shirt off for the medical however, it revealed a tattoo on his arm of a Union Jack with the words “British Army” underneath.
He was promptly refused entry to the police force on the grounds that this was a “racist symbol.”
A RACIST SYMBOL!! This is the flag under which the British people and their allies fought and defeated one of the most dangerous and racist ideologies of all time. At that point I finally spat it. I knew then that we had to turn things around.
I’m sure Pickering Post readers all have their own moments to share. Strange as it may sound, I actually think that in one sense, Islam has been a godsend. Within the next year or two, even Blind Freddy will be forced to admit that Islam is a political ideology of intense hatred and destruction.
This will destroy the credibility of all those who have been jamming it down our throats for the last two or three decades. The idiocy of their logic is breath-taking.
How can someone claim to be a champion of women, the oppressed and religious freedom whilst promoting an ideology which is the polar opposite of all of these things? I can’t wait to hear them trying to talk themselves out of that one.
Once people see the moral bankruptcy of this position, they will turn against these idiots. Our challenge is to make sure that they don’t wriggle out of it. We need to watch these fools and keep a record of the garbage they are pedalling. In time, this will be valuable ammunition.
Let us make sure that this really is a turning point. Let us make sure that we can throw out this garbage and restore our society on the foundations and principles which made us great.
