Freedom Of Shit

I am extremely infuriated with the British government. I don’t think anyone is capable of being as ludicrously injudicious as our ex prime minister, Mr Blair. Out of his many imprudence actions have been knighting Salman Rushdie for no apparent reason. Surely he can not claim that Rushdie has been honoured for his prominent writing because I believe that millions of others are much better than him at the field. JK Rowling would be an obvious choice. No it most certainly is not because of how well Rushdie writes but more of what he wrote about. It’s the freedom of speech argument again, how far is going too far? Rushdie DID in fact go too far with his discriminating, hurtful and quite frankly ‘bullshit’ book regarding Islam. The phrase “he is more full of shit than the sewers of India” come to mind when someone mentions Rushdie. He is supposed to be a Muslim himself; his book is a pathetic shout for attention and publicity. If that is the category on which is knighthood has been based on than surely people like Jodie Marsh should be honored as well?

I don’t understand what goes under the freedom of speech right. Its quite ambiguous and vague. The Queen knighting Rushdie is just proof of the anti Islam state that Britain can be at times. They have all these anti discriminating laws such as anti racism and equal rights for all but they contradict themselves by the knighthood. Just because his attacks were based on Islam, he has been honored? Its like honoring Hitler. I dare you to go out and even just mention being pro Nazi or make something up about the Church of England and you certainly won’t be knighted. We live in a fucked up society where everything is bullshit. I don’t care if people see me as an over sensitive Muslim, it was hurtful and I am against it and you know what? Stuff you because you would feel the same if someone attacked your religion or race. My take on freedom of speech? Can you spell R.E.T.A.R.D.E.D?
