Steynian 261

~ OF COURSE, AS a narrow-minded right-wing Christianist, it might be supposed I’d be railing on Pat Condell, noted atheistical infidel and outspoken YouTuber. That’s just how we are, after all. Sorry to disappoint, but here at FreeMarkSteyn we’d rather deal with a person of principle who has a mind to change, rather than a jellyfish of public opinion. After all, many saints started out as heretics, sinners, and unlikely candidates for holiness. Further, we don’t know Pat’s particular circumstances, since reasons for rejecting God and religion are never simply ‘rational’.

But hurray for Pat– a person of intelligence and good will, whatever his reasons for uncertainty about faith and such. Hurray the moreso, now that the Jihad and related forces of appeasement have taken aim at him, and threatening bans and suchlike. He’s outspoken.. that’s free speech for ya.. and he has no use for Jihadism and the many flaws of contemporary Islam as they appear in our modern world. Pat writes on his Youtube site:


The following video(s) from your account have been disabled for violating the YouTube Community Guidelines:
•Welcome to Saudi Britain – (patcondell)

Welcome to the interweb 2008; unfree speech in the West, where one grumble from someone who hates all we stand for makes us curl up and cry and start apologizing. Pat is free to believe what he wants, say what he wants, and to be allowed to do so publicly. To have YouTube fronting Jihad videos whilst forbidding or allowing the banning of anti-Jihad videos is simply wicked, irresponsible, and hypocritical.


The Sharia/ Jihad is marching on– start pushing back now (and support bloggers and writers and others who are doing so), or risk losing your freedoms.


Och! Cheer Up, Then!

Things Are Going Tae Get Much Worse!

William Wallace’s (Braveheart) words to live by:

Dico Tibi Verum, Libertas Optima Rerum:
Nunquam Servili Sub Nexu Vivito, Fili

Translation: My Son, Freedom is best, I tell thee true, of all things to be won. Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.

    • Saith Binks: Dear Beverly Ho–

      There is no legal or natural right not to be offended/ ‘ravaged’ (you might want to double-check on that latter word). If you publish a book, article, journal, magazine, blog, or whatever, it may be quoted or linked to by people you disagree with, or perhaps wish could be silenced as ‘just too ravaging for words’. No doubt Mr. Hitler would be offended by Jews quoting Mein Kampf, or Obama irritated by Michelle Malkin holding him accountable for his words. That’s how reality & the free exchange of ideas works. And perhaps– instead of insulting my ideas– you might try to persistently disagree, and so turn me from my ravaging and ‘orrible ways. Whether you choose to feel ravaged or not is up to you, not by my linking or unlinking to your blog. Just saying, is all.

      Heck, if you want me to publish your reply to my evil ways and views, I’ll even do that. But censor and silence myself, or stuff sent to me or found on the web? Sorry– I won’t go all thought police on my own self for you, or anybody.
