Therefore it’s in vain to be afraid of being labelled of having a phobia, It’s just means that you’re defending your values, and that someone else does not agree.
I will not let fear rule me
I’m tired of being called fearful. At times I’m deemed a phobic, sometimes islamophobic and mostly xenophobic. It is the idea that I am opposed to Islamification, because I’m afraid of Muslims. It is the idea that I am against immigration, because of the fear of immigrants. It is really not about this. Fear is the wrong word, it’s merely a psychological weapon uses by the Red and Greens. None of us are really cowards.
It is easy to try to silence a political opponent by throwing the label of fear and anger at him. Anger and fear are things that no one can see any good but mostly weakness. For this reason, the label work, people do not want to be labelled, because others may then treat them differently. However, the label is just a label, and it can be jettisoned as easily at it was applied. The correct word for objecting to Islam or humanitarian immigration is not fear, but love of country.
I hate the idea of a Europe that is Islamic. Political Islam, jihadism is trying to help convert people by force. I’m not afraid of this, but I hate it. Fear is a weakness, disgust is a natural reaction to what you do not want. I hate the idea that Finland should have supply social welfare throughout the world, of which all those who wish to withdraw money from it. Humanitarian immigration is often only going after money, I shudder at the thought of this. So I am not afraid, but I am opposed to it. Is humanitarian immigration really necessary? Only one third of asylum applications are accepted. Is the immigration office xenophobic?
The Left-wing has a high threshold for loathing things that people normally shy away from. Therefore, it is easy to throw in their phobia labels at people who have a different view than them. Everything is permissible for extreme tolerance. That is what tolerance is all about, all of us have to bear it, everything is tolerated. Nothing is disgusting nor wrong, only those who condemn are those with phobias. Therefore it’s in vain to be afraid of being labelled of having a phobia, It’s just means that you’re defending your values, and that someone else does not agree.
