Another Item in the Long List of Things that Piss Me Off
Via Ace of Spades, I was made aware of an article that Villianous Company first linked about the rapidly rising number of rapes occurring in Oslo, Norway. In fact, the number of rapes is now 6 times as high as that in New York City as measured on a per capita basis. Tellingly, 2 out of every 3 people charged with these crimes is an immigrant from a non-western country. However, the powers that be in Oslo keep urging people not to get Islamophobic.

In fact, one such had this to say:

Unni Wikan, a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo, in 2001 said that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”

This is the biggest piece of multi-culti shit I've read in a very long time. The very notion that a would-be victim should make accomodations for her would-be rapist is appalling! No, it goes further that that. It is horrific, abhorrent, and an absolute certainty that "multiculturalism" has gone too far. Dhimmitude has certainly attained a new level when we start to suggest that the onus of law and order falls on the victims and not the criminals. It is now obvious that rather than have the immigrant adapt to his new environment, the regular denizens must adapt instead. This is a ridiculous notion. It is a tyranny of the weak and a sure way to please nobody.

For surely, there is more than one immigrant group present in any society and while they may have common beliefs, there is no way you are going to please them all. Governing a society as is suggested here, from the least common denominator, is stupid. It is a sure way to rub out the light of freedom, that's for damn sure.

Just take this example as an illustration. The professor excuses the rapes because the Muslim men found the manner of dress of their victims to be provocative. Need I point out that this is religion that has as its least common denominator a manner of dress for women that allows for only a small window to their eyes to be seen? Just so we're clear, in this circumstance, anything less than a Barnum&Bailey's circus tent is going to be seen as provocative. And this, this explains and excuses the rapes? I don't think so. Not now. Not ever.

If you move to a new country, it is incumbent upon you to adapt, not the people that already live there. A free country will allow you to live as you will, but forcing everyone else to live as you do is ridiculous, particularly if you are the new-comer. If you want to affect change, stay, vote, and make your voice be heard. But don't even begin to tell me that you didn't know rape was wrong, or drag out that old "she was asking for it" bullshit.

At the end of the day, society is preserved by law and the zealous protection and prosecution of the law. Without law, there is no order. But then again, I would remind the professor of another thing. Many Muslims don't like the notion of a secular government of laws and would instead prefer a sharia law system.

Of course, in this case the rapists go free. Because, under sharia these women likely were guilty of promiscuity. And, even if they were not, women need something like 5 male witnesses to a rape in order to win their case. So, only a woman who is gang-raped and then 5 of her attackers regret their actions will a rape case ever be successfully prosecuted under sharia. And, heaven forbid. I'm not even sure that it wouldn't take more than that if the victim was not Muslim.

This is my point. It is incumbent upon the immigrants to adapt, not the people who have a prior claim. All of this multiculturalism dhimmidtude is a very slippery slope. If we aren't careful, we are going to find ourselves on the quick chute to hell.
