Spencer and the Qur’an: Book Burning bad but Book Banning Good
Robert Spencer has a Geert Wilders problem. He is an unabashed supporter of Wilders, citing him as the champion of Western civilization, the only one willing to stand up for our freedoms in the face of the Muslim menace and an individual we should all be supporting.
[I] support Wilders. And so should anyone who holds dear the Western values that are threatened by Islamic supremacists — notably, as I said above, the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of all people before the law.
But apparently not Freedom of Religion.
Recently Spencer has commented on the Burn a Koran day festivities saying,
I oppose the Qur’an-burning. I don’t like the burning of books…However, these people are free to do what they want to do.
Isn’t Spencer so merciful? Thank you for opposing the burning of books, what a courageous stand for a defender of the West!
But wait Spencer, you oppose burning books but your buddy Geert Wilders has called for the Quran to be banned in the Netherlands.
The Koran must be banned
Pretty unequivocal statement right there. No ifs, ands or buts just plain banning. So when are you going to take a courageous stand and defend Freedom of Speech and Religion by calling your buddy Wilders out for his Nazi like fascistic statement to ban the Quran?
