For an aggressively aggrieved “victim” group to bully the world into subservience, it has to be shameless enough to find insult everywhere, irrespective of how obviously absurd the claims may be. For example:
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars model that supposedly resembles one of Istanbul’s most revered mosques.
Austria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul…
Ironically, Hagia Sophia was built to worship God, not the Islamic devil. It was the Eastern Orthodox equivalent of Saint Peter’s Basilica for well over 1,000 years, until Byzantium tragically fell to invading savages in 1453. In those days, expansionist Islam was spread by the sword, rather than by breeding and whining.
The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings.
The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films. …
As an indication of the anger felt over Jabba’s Palace, the organisation said it was considering taking legal action against Lego for inciting racial hatred and insulting human dignity.
Since no one has the guts to laugh in their faces, the goons push and push and push some more. The Hamas front group CAIR forced Nike to recall 800,000 pairs of sneakers at great expense because the “Air” logo supposedly looks like Arab script for “Allah”:
Burger King responded with comparably obsequious compliance, wasting thousands of containers of ice cream, when Muslims claimed a stylized ice cream swirl looked like the word “Allah”:
Not to be outdone, McDonald’s recalled this toy because the squiggles at the base supposedly look like “Mohammad” in Arabic:
It is amazing how much compliance you can get by flying a few planes into buildings and then sniveling relentlessly.
