Muslim cab wars in Dhimmiapolis — er, I mean, Minneapolis
By now you’ve probably heard about the Muslim cab wars in Minneapolis. If not, here’s a quick synopsis. Seventy-five percent of the cab drivers servicing the Minneapolis International Airport are Somali Muslims and most of them have been refusing service to infidel passengers who engage in behaviors that aren’t up to snuff when it comes to Islam.
For instance, let’s say you’re an average godless and contemptible infidel who just bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon at the duty-free shop and then you try to hail a cab with that devil’s concoction in your possession. You’re committing a grave sin against the Religion of Peace and can’t possibly expect an observant Muslim to be complicit in your sin, not to mention defile his taxi by transporting you and your iniquitous liquid.
So what are you supposed to do? Well, apparently you’re supposed to show your multicultural tolerance by acquiescing to the primitive customs of the Islamic cabbies and finding some other means of transportation that won’t involve giving offense to a person of another culture or faith.
As another example, let’s say you’re an unsighted person who gets around with the help of a seeing-eye dog. Yep, that’s right. Don’t expect to defile the purity of a Muslim taxi with your filthy beast. Refusing service in that kind of situation is a direct violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), but so far Islam trumps such infidel legislation.
Amazing, isn’t it? In a world of political correctness gone mad, who could possibly mistreat the unsighted and get away with it? Muslims, that’s who! But imagine that the cab drivers, rather than being Muslims, were instead bible-thumping Christian fundamentalists who were refusing fares for the exact same reasons. How long do you think they would get away with it before the ACLU would be all over them like white on rice and before Frank Rich, New York times columnist extraordinaire, would write his umpteenth column about the Christian fundamentalist takeover of America? Half a day, maybe?
But for whatever unfathomable reason, the entire Western world, in its wretched multicultural misguidedness, seems to believe that it has to bend over backwards to accommodate the primitive beliefs of Islamic religious fanatics. The question of our time, of the age, is, why? Why would self-proclaimed secular Western societies do this? Why, why, why?
It all stems from the cult of multiculturalism which basically says that any culture is as good as any other, so therefore all cultures must be tolerated. Anything less would be intolerant and intolerance is evil. And since Islamic culture is just another culture that is as good as any other, it must be tolerated in the name of multicultural tolerance, even if it is itself supremely intolerant and could eventually supplant the preexisting culture of tolerance, which would, in effect, spell the end of all that cherished toleration.
