Ayaan Hirsi
Somali-born Dutch Politician
And Hero Of Western Civilization

Ayaan Hirsi is the Somali-born Dutch politician who made the movie "Submission" with Theo Van Gogh, for which Mr. Van Gogh was murdered by the Islamofasists. Ayaan Hirsi has been living in hiding, under state protection ever since. She sleeps in a different bed every night. Imagine the life.

Yet she still speaks out against the militants who would bring down Western Civilization.

You know why she does this? Because she hopes that by doing so, we will not have live like her in future generations.

As I have said before on this blog, Ayaan Hirsi is my hero.

Here is an interview with her from the French weekly L' Express, translated by John Rosenthal, of Transatlantic Intelligencer, via Little Green Footballs:

Originally, a member of the Dutch Labor Party, Hirsi Ali left the latter to join the (more conservative) VVD (party). L’Express asked her why. Here is her response:

Because the left is exactly like the Muslims! I wanted to give priority to the defense of immigrant women who are victims of domestic violence. They said to me: “No, that’s not a priority! The problem will take care of itself when the immigrants have jobs and are integrated.”

It is exactly what the Imams say who demand that we accept oppression and slavery today because tomorrow, in Heaven, God will give us dates and raisins…. I think we need first to defend the individual.

The left is afraid of everything. But fear of giving offense leads to injustice and suffering.

The sexual revolution, the affirmation of individual rights, improving the living conditions of immigrants – these were once the great causes of the Dutch left. In their eyes, the simple fact that one belongs to a minority gives one the right to do anything. This multiculturalism is a disaster. All one has to do is scream “discrimination” and all doors are open to you! Scream ‘racism’ and your opponents shut up!

But multiculturalism is an inconsistent theory. If one wants to let communities preserve their traditions, what happens when these traditions work to the detriment of women or homosexuals? The logic of multiculturalism amounts to accepting the subordination of women. Nonetheless, the defenders of multiculturalism do not want to admit it.
