A new organization that claims to advocate on behalf of women has come under fire, with allegations that, despite appearances to the contrary, it actually seeks to stealthily spread racial hatred and Islamophobic bigotry. Despite all their rhetoric about “rape,” the so-called European Advocates For Women is a group of racist nationalists who oppose immigrants because of the color of their skin and their religious beliefs — nothing more. This terrorist group is asking women who are being attacked to violently repel their innocent immigrant attackers with tasers and pepper spray — all under the guise of protecting themselves from alleged “rapists!”
As many respected academics have shown, we know that rape is about power only, and since White males are the ones with power, only White males can rape. So obviously, Muslims cannot be rapists. Attacking and otherizing Muslims as rapists, is not acceptable, and progressives must speak out against it.
Let me be clear, the real rape epidemic is driven by White males. Muslims are not raping White women, period! They are, however, tragically being scapegoated by racists. This demonization has many parallels to the demonization that Jews underwent before World War II by Nazi Germany! So I thought, what better way to make these connections than to interview a well-known Jewish ethnic activist, Barbara Specter.
Werombi Towradji: Thank you Barbara for sitting down with me for this interview. I am a great admirer of your work in promoting non-White immigration and multi-culturalism in Europe. When Europe completely loses its native populations and culture, they will build glorious monuments to you.
Barbara Specter: It’s my pleasure. The claims that Muslims are raping White women are simply false. When young Muslim men are accused of raping women, the term ‘rape’ shouldn’t even be used! As you pointed out, White males, being the ones in power, are the only ones who can rape. It’s just like with racism: only Whites can be racist because Whites control the institutional power structure.
I would also like to point out that, as many respected academics have noted, rape is a social construct, just like “race.” White males construct the myth that non-Whites can rape White women and then use it to marginalize non-Whites, all in the interests of preserving the mythical idea that there was ever such a thing as “European culture” or that Europeans are a distinct racial group with interests in preserving itself.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that everything is a social construct. Certain events in history, such as the Holocaust, are absolutely true and having nothing to do with people constructing and promoting ideas to further their own interests. This is an absolute consensus among respected academics.
And another thing, when Muslim men force themselves on a woman, they don’t know they are doing anything wrong. Why not? Because, as many respected academics have pointed out, we failed to teach them that! So in actuality, these Muslim men are the victims of an intolerant European culture! It is so easy to look at the surface and say, “Aha, this guy is a bad person, a rapist.” We must not fall prey to that kind of thinking. We need to look deeper, at the root causes. Reactionaries look at the surface, they don’t address the real issues.
Werombi Towradji: I couldn’t agree more. Could you expand on your idea that when White males rape White women, it is morally different than when a Muslim migrant forcibly copulates with a White woman? White men rape women to assert their privilege and power. They are bad people, sexist, male chauvinist pigs who do not respect women! However, when migrants do it, it is because they don’t know any better? And it’s Whites’ fault, because they are not sensitive to the values of other cultures and don’t want to educate them?
Barbara Specter: Absolutely. That is exactly what I am saying. We have to understand cultural relativism. In some countries, men don’t think that it’s wrong to force themselves on a woman. They don’t know that you need to get a woman’s verbal consent. That’s why the Swedish government has recently introduced rape prevention bracelets. The bracelet clearly says, “Don’t Touch Me” on it. If only all women would wear these bracelets, the problem would be solved. We know that some of these women who were allegedly “raped” were not wearing the bracelets. These women need to take responsibility for that, and admit their own guilt, and own their own privilege! It’s very hard being a migrant in a fundamentally racist White country like Sweden. Where is our sympathy for the migrants accused of rape by privileged White women? It can’t be fun being called a rapist and being judged. You can imagine the damage that it does to their self-esteem.
Werombi Towradji: Muslim men are being arrested even when they are trying to help women. A Muslim man may have been seen ripping the clothes off a woman. How do we know he was actually trying to rape her? He might just as well have thought she was suffering from heat stroke. Maybe he was trying to remove them in order to save her life! We just don’t know, and I refuse to jump to conclusions. Why do white racists automatically assume that a darker man, tearing off a woman’s clothes, is trying to “rape” her? I believe that expectations often create reality. Those who fear Muslim “rapists” (again, we agree that Muslims can’t really be rapists), often cause Muslims to do these things that White women don’t like. White racists are imposing their own stereotypes upon them. Would you agree?
Barbara Specter: Of course I agree, absolutely! Something else here that is very important needs to be said. Swedish women should not be racist. They should not be afraid to go out with Muslim men, to marry them (even if they are the third or fourth wife), and to have their babies. Blond hair is inherently racist, and if Swedish women have babies with Arabs and Africans, this repulsive symbol of racism will be gone forever.
Islam is a peaceful, tolerant, and progressive religion! Bigots want you to think that Islam is somehow violent. That Islam somehow oppresses women! This organization, the European Advocates for Women, is spreading lies! They claim that in Islam women do not enjoy equal rights. That is simply not true! The prophet Muhammad, viewed all of his wives as his equals. They enjoyed full equal rights and equality with him! That isn’t my opinion, that is a matter of historical fact upon which respected academics agree.
Werombi Towradji: Europe has never truly learned to tolerate other races and cultures has it? It has never learned to value diversity, which is Europe’s greatest strength. It can’t be easy for you living as a Jew in Europe. Because Europe is still so White, you face discrimination every day because of your religion and ethnicity. The Islamization of Europe will mean greater tolerance for Jews surely? And, by increasing the number of non-Whites, you make it less likely Whites will unify and successful launch an anti-Jewish pogrom ever again?
Barbara Specter: It’s true. One of the most gratifying things to me as a Jew is that Muslims in Europe are so positive about Jews and Israel. They absolutely love us! But you are right about Europe. As I’ve said, Europe has not yet learned to be multi-cultural. And I think we’re going be part of the throes of that transformation which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that; it’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multi-cultural mode. And Jews will be resented because for our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.
Werombi Towradji: Your idea that Europe will not survive without multiculturalism is very important to stress. It is a tragedy that most people don’t understand this! We who are advocating multi-culturalism and massive non-White immigration are doing it to prevent the destruction of Europe. We’re the good guys, and native Europeans should be grateful to Jews like you for being on the vanguard of such a movement. Can they ever repay you?
Barbara Specter: Let me be perfectly clear. Groups like Isis, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, the Iranian government, the Saudi government, fundamentalist sects, Salafis, Wahhabis — they are not real Islam. They are not Islamic at all. They have nothing to do with Islam and any number of respected academics agree with me! Why are people trying to say these groups are somehow Muslim? Intolerant groups are not and cannot be Islamic. The phrase ‘intolerant Muslim’ is a contradiction in terms, an oxymoron if you will. For example, there is no evidence that the attack on the gay nightclub in Orlando had anything to do with Islam despite the media spreading lies about the attacker’s links to ISIS. The real problem is gun violence. Americans need to trade their Second Amendment rights so that the only people who have guns are people who will protect them, the police and the military. Only uneducated hillbillies and unhinged psychopaths could possibly think there would be a black market in guns once guns are banned. Europe, after all, has been completely free of gun violence because of its strict gun laws.
Werombi Towradji: We agree that Islam is a religion of peace. But would you agree that Christianity teaches religious bigotry and blind hatred? It is fully compatible with racist ideologies, is it not?
Barbara Specter: I agree with that. Throughout its history Christianity has been nothing more than oppressing people of different religions and ethnicities. European history is one long nightmare of oppression against anyone who is not a White, Christian, heterosexual male. Groups like the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi Germany were filled with white Christian heterosexual males. There is a consensus among respected academics that Islam spread not by the sword (a myth spread by Islamophobic bigots), but by converting people to abandon their warlike, cruel and enslaving ways in favor of peace and love. Muslim preachers went from place to place humbly convincing people of the moral superiority of Islam. For example, apart from Judaism, Islam is the only religion in the world to completely renounce slavery.
Werombi Towradji: Some are suggesting women should dress differently. What do you think? What is your response? It has nothing to do with how men react, of course.
Barbara Specter: Of course not. If a woman wants to go around naked, not wearing anything, she cannot be held even partly responsible, if she is raped. If a woman chooses to wear the burqa and cover herself from head to toe, that too is her choice. It is her body and her right. Both decisions are equal, both decisions are an expression of her feminism, and both decisions empower women equally. Women choose to express their feminism in a variety of different ways in different cultures. We need to understand and respect that. In Islamic culture women express their independence by never leaving home alone, and accepting being beaten by their husbands for disobedience.
Werombi Towradji: Thank you so much for this interview. I am afraid we are out of time for now. Thank you again, good night Barbara.
Barbara Specter: It was a pleasure. I hope that I’ve helped to clarify some common misconceptions that people in the West today have. Islamophobia is not okay! Islamophobia does not empower women, or make them safer in any way. Racist White women need to check their privilege. Good night my friend.
