A Conservative Party candidate for the 2018 local elections has been suspended pending investigation after old tweets emerged where she compared Islam to Nazism. Karen Sunderland, a candidate for Crofton Park in Lewisham, London, called Islam “the new Nazism” in a tweet last December
Islamic jihad is a massive global problem. Yet the increasingly common response from authorities in the West, particularly in Britain, to criticism of it demonstrates how far the acceptance of Sharia restrictions on the freedom of speech has advanced in ostensibly free societies.
Meanwhile, Muslim Labor MP Naz Shah can get away with saying the most shocking and damaging statements: Shah marked the death of Winnie Mandela with an “inspirational” quote from Mandela endorsing the brutal “necklacing” murders of the ’80s and ’90s. Shah also compared Israelis to Hitler and wants Israel “dismantled.” She posted pro-Hamas tweets and retweeted a message to the victims of the Muslim rape gangs, telling them to shut up for the good of diversity.
None of that was enough to get her suspended or fired. But to criticize Islam in the slightest manner, even when the criticism is true, is now regarded as a crime to be punished. Note also how Sunderland criticized Islam’s restrictions on the freedom of speech. Her punishment proves her correct.
British leaders have succumbed to dhimmitude. It remains to be seen how long British citizens will be willing to put up with the advance of Sharia, under which Islam must not be criticized without punishment.
“Tory council candidate Karen Sunderland suspended for ‘Islamophobic’ tweets comparing Islam to Nazism”, by Alex Finnis, iNews, May 1, 2018:
A Conservative Party candidate for the 2018 local elections has been suspended pending investigation after old tweets emerged where she compared Islam to Nazism.
Karen Sunderland, a candidate for Crofton Park in Lewisham, London, called Islam “the new Nazism” in a tweet last December, and has also been called out for a number of other ‘Islamophobic’ statements.
She sent a tweet in October mocking hijabs, and the following month said she was confused why Muslims would choose to live in the West.
“Islam has become the new Nazism” In a since-removed thread including both Piers Morgan and Malala Yousafzai, Ms Sunderland wrote: “Love your optimism. The thing is, religion undermines the hard fought for values and tolerances of progressed countries… suppresses free speech and is auto immune from criticism. This is toxic and where the hostility comes from. Religion is totalitarian. Islam has become the new Nazism.”
In a reply to LBC in November she wrote: “Parents will simply bang on about Islam and their rights blah blah blah. It confuses me so much why people with these views live in the West.”
And her tweet about the hijab from October read: “Such a lame attempt you made to justify hijabs. Self indulgent to think anyone would give a toot that you showed your hair.”….
