From Elsewhere: Political Correctness, preventing people from denouncing evil
Has Britain’s moral degeneracy become so all encompassing that Britons are supporting the mutilation of women just to show how ‘culturally sensitive’ they are? Appalling, there is no other word for this story.
Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Mag said:
“A Londoner who suffered female genital mutilation has warned that political correctness is hampering the fight to stamp it out after asking people to sign a fake petition in its favour.
Leyla Hussein, 32, said many were scared to speak out against FGM because they were worried about criticising another culture.
She decided to conduct an experiment to see “how crazy political correctness has become” but was left in tears by the end.
Approaching shoppers with the petition supporting FGM, she told them she wanted to protect her “culture, traditions and rights”.
In only 30 minutes 19 people signed it with some saying they believed FGM was wrong but because it was part of Ms Hussein’s culture they would add their names. Only one person refused to sign.
Ms Hussein, who was cut when she was seven in Somalia, said: “Four women held me down and cut my clitoris. I felt every single cut. I was screaming so much I just blacked out.”
“I kept using the word ‘it’s just mutilation’. They were like ‘yes, you are right’. How can anyone think that’s okay?”
She added: “FGM is not culture, it is violence. Stop using the culture word. This is happening to children. We are human beings, we can’t watch children being cut, I don’t care what culture you belong to.”
This is how far we have fallen. We now fail to use the word ‘discrimination‘ in its proper sense, which is to make a judgement between two different things. If we have lost the ability to discern right from wrong then we are indeed in deep trouble.
