A glimpse of the Counter Jihad Mainstream in microcosm
The glimpse occurred (as it often does, since it's reasonable to suppose it's a major venue of the Counter-Jihad) in Jihad Watch comments.
The Counter-Jihad civilians were commenting (numbering up to 134) on a report of some Muslims in Germany misbehaving as they are wont to do, given their baseline mainstream Islam:
"Muslim migrants kick baby on bus, attack paramedics trying to treat child".
They also used "the handles on the bus to hoist themselves up and attack women and old people to try and drag them into the fighting..."
Of course, all the Jihad Watchers were (understandably) outraged at the Muslims in question.
And, of course, none of the Jihad Watchers touched (substantively) on the crux of the whole matter -- are all Muslims suspect or just the Tiny Minority of Extremists who conspicuously misbehave?
Then, when one Jihad Watcher blurted out that:
”Every bleeding heart should be forced to read this” (meaning, read the report, so they would wake up to the fact that -- apparently (though he didn't make it explicit, of course) -- all Muslims are savages) -- one of the Jihad Watch regulars (and indeed, member of the privileged "Rabbit Pack"), one "Mirren" responded:
It wouldn’t make the slightest bit of difference.
All they would say is; ”this is a tiny minority of refugees, you mustn’t paint all muslims/refugees with a broad brush,,and you are a racist, bigoted islamophobe.”
This gets to the nub of the whole issue. If Mirren really meant what her retort implies, she wouldn't have countenanced the multiple attacks on me over the years by her friend, "Angemon" (another member of the Rabbit Pack), whenever I pressed the point (and articulated the argument) that if the West is going to survive, we have to move from our incoherent antipathy to Islam to a rational suspicion of all Muslims. And that rational suspicion would have to have concrete actions (such as deportation of all Muslims from the West).
I see that back in 2014 I had taken "Mirren" to task for her tough-on-the-outside-nougaty-soft-on-the-inside stance about the problem of Muslims:
