Le Monde this weekend turns its attention to that hotbed of depravity, Canada, and its travails with its fringe population of polygamists.
For a moment one clings to the vain hope that this is might be just a matter of our old friends the Mormons, but no. Proving once again that they are firmly attached to the butt-end of the world’s moral compass, Muslim “community leaders” have leapt into the fray on the side of abuse and oppression.
Authorities in Utah and British Columbia have invested a lot of effort recently in a successful assault on those Mormon fundamentalists who plant their shacks in isolated communities in order to prey on their little girls undisturbed. A crackdown on the illegal cross-border traffic in adolescent “wives” has freed a number of youngsters and put some abusers behind bars. But their efforts are being undermined at the federal level by the Great Dominion’s very own brand of left-liberal November Criminals in Ottowa, who have called for polygamy to be legalised on multicultural grounds.
Would those people be taking the same stand if it were just the Mormons who were doing it? I think we all know the answer. One wonders what it is about such idiots that renders them incapable of joining the intellectual dots in their own arguments. There is no position so despicable or indefensible that the left will not assume it as long as there’s an angry Islamist prepared to put it on a banner and wave it at them. What next? Separate sharia courts? Oh, wait – they already tried that…
Just put some hijabs on, girls, and we’ll be fine.
