Slave masters, real and imagined
One of the fantasies we see in public statements by certain prominent blacks is that their opponents constitute a new version of slave masters. Black NFL player Adrian Peterson, a man earning millions of dollars a year, compared the situation of his colleagues to "modern-day slavery." Just yesterday, prominent NAACP leader Hazel Dukes
blasted a pro-charter-school parent from The Bronx as "doing the business of slave masters" in a shocking e-mail defending the civil-rights organization's lawsuit against city plans to expand charters.
While pathetic and absurd, the misuse of such language tragically trivializes the very real phenomenon of slavery in today's world, something left wing American blacks are loath to acknowledge.
Not only is slavery being practiced in Muslim nations today, there are those who openly seek its expansion. The following post by Raymond Ibrahim at Front Page Magazine is simply stunning:
Last week witnessed popular Muslim preacher Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini boast about how Islam allows Muslims to buy and sell conquered infidel women, so that "When I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her."
This week's depraved anachronism comes from a Muslim woman-Salwa al-Mutairi, a political activist and former parliamentary candidate for Kuwait's government, no less: She, too, seeks to "revive the institution of sex-slavery."
A brief English report appeared over the weekend in the Kuwait Times (nothing, of course, in the MSM):
Mutairi: "In the Chechnyan war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait; better that than have our men engage in forbidden sexual relations."
Muslim men who fear being seduced or tempted into immoral behavior by the beauty of their female servants, or even of those servants "casting spells" on them, would be better to purchase women from an "enslaved maid" agency for sexual purposes. She [Mutairi] suggested that special offices could be set up to provide concubines in the same way as domestic staff recruitment agencies currently provide housemaids. "We want our youth to be protected from adultery," said al-Mutairi, suggesting that these maids could be brought as prisoners of war in war-stricken nations like Chechnya to be sold on later to devout merchants.
There is more. Read the whole thing. Remember that Kuwait is our ally, on whose behalf we fought a war.
