I’ve always found swimming a particularly boring sport; swim, swim, turn around, swim swim – nothing to read, no one to talk to – so I won’t write about that.Â I just wanted to show off the above photo recently taken near my gaff in sleepy backwater Pui O.
Yes, it’s that (one) time (week) of the year when we can see the islands of the South ChinaÂ Sea!
As always, I wish it was all year long,Â except when it’s foggy, which is also spectacular in its own way.
No, what I wanted to mention was an incident from Britain, or BritStan as it will soon be known. There, a town council is so afraid of being beheadedÂ or called racists, that they immediately caved when some muslims ordered them to blacken the windows in the new town swimming pool so that the muslim women swimming there (no doubt on their own special “Only Muslim No Dirty Kuffar” day of the week) would “keep their modesty.”
I know, I’ve got to stop writing about these incredibly dreary people! It’s just that the news keep ticking in at a rate of about 20 a day, each its own little red warning sign of the islamic future these desert throwbacks have dreamed up for us all. The most worrisome thing was that the worker who helped blackening the windows says: “We had no choice.” Oh, really? Is it: protect the muslims’ modesty, or … die? Because that seems to be the thing with these people, doesn’t it. “Stop making films quoting scriptures from the qur’an, or die. Stop drawing cartoons depicting a desert warrior from 1400 years ago, or die. Stop writing books revealing the truth about us – or die.”
So the ordinary, many of them elderly, people, in that community, complain that swimming in the dark doesn’t really cut it for them. One, they can’t see anything. Their sight may already be not so hot. One of them even likens the newly darkened swimming pool to her sight before she had her cataracts dealt with.
And two – well, if you compare the photos above – which one is really most attractive for an activity like swimming? I mean, for a person who enjoys swimming, naturally. Not for a person who wants to pull down a curtain on all that’s enjoyable, life-giving and sane.
The people in the article complain to the newspaper journalist who’s come to interview them that day. But apart from that, what’s their reaction? Probably they will react by not going to the pool.
What they don’t do, being British and shy and kind and polite, is kick up a storm of protest. But that’s what they should be doing if you ask me. They should protest, scream, threaten and shout, pretty much in the same way as these misogynistic, anti-democracy, child-molesting tent-wearers do whenever something happens that they feel “offended” by – like when people exercise they right to free speech by criticising them. Or drawing a – horrors! cartoon.
Covering up windows in a public swimming pool. Give me a break! If these people are so dead set on protecting their “modesty,” shouldn’t they just stay home and take a bath in the comfort of their own windowless bathroom?
This is just another in a long, never-ending row of events which shows that whenever special rights are given to muslims in the areas they have decided to
colonise settle, no matter how much the non-muslims are inconvenienced, they’ll just demand more, more and ever more. And the dhimmispolitically correct politicians just keep giving it to them, no questions asked.
Dear Brits: It’s time you stopped being so nice and afraid of offending the people who want to harm you. The more you give, the more you’ll lose. And they will never stop with their demands before they have reached their goal: Darkened swimming pools for all. Followed by: No swimming pools.
