In “‘Racialising’ Islam” in the American Thinker today, Paul Austin Murphy skewers the hypocrisy, false victimhood posturing, and Islamic supremacist anti-free speech campaigning of the UK’s egregiously dishonest Fiyaz Mughal:
At the end of December 2013, a host for Liberty GB radio (Liberty GB is a British political party) was charged by West Midlands Police (England) with “racially aggravated harassment.” Tim Burton’s supposed crime was a Twitter post in which he described Fiyaz Mughal (who runs an “anti-Islamophobia” website/organisation called Tell MAMA) as “a mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist”
Fiyaz Mughal’s (or Tell MAMA’s) latest claim (as of the 14th of January) is that Tim Burton has also been guilty of “racialising Muslims.”
Now why did Tim Burton describe Fiyaz Mughal as a “a mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist”? He did so because it was revealed that Mughal had been deceiving the public about nonexistent “hate crimes” against Muslims (as first revealed by Telegraph journalist Andrew Gilligan). More specifically, Tell MAMA had published misleading statistics on “anti-Muslim incidents” in the wake of the Islamic murder of soldier Lee Rigby. In terms of detail, Mughal was publicly criticized by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
As a consequence of these lies (or at least these acts of dissimulation), Tell MAMA had its public/state funding withdrawn.
So what happened next? What happened next was a bizarre case of self-reference.
Because Tim Burton highlighted Fiyaz Mughal’s bogus claims about nonexistent “Islamophobia” and “hate crimes” (against Muslims), Mughal decided to accuse Tim Burton himself of committing a hate crime for revealing such mendacity. Effectively Fiyaz Mughal is attempting to stop people pointing out his bogus hate-crime claims by saying that such criticisms are also, well, hate crimes.
So firstly, Fiyaz Mughal is attempting to stop all criticism of Muslims (as Muslims) and Islam itself. And now he’s also trying to stop all criticisms of his publicly-known deceit.
As a result of all this, Tim Burton will be standing trial on the 18th February 2014 at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court (England).
The very strange thing about all this is rather than it being the case that Tim Burton is “racialising Muslims”, as Fiyaz Mughal claims, it’s actually the case that Tell MAMA (or Fiyaz Mughal) and the Left are doing so. What Tell MAMA/Fiyaz Mughal and the Left are trying to do is convince everyone else that all criticisms of Islam and Muslims (as Muslims) are racist in nature. Why? Because if they can pull that off, then they can silence all such criticisms.
