I’m no fan of Christopher Hitchens, but this is near prophetic! A decade ago, Hitchens perfectly predicted how accusations of “Islamophobia” will be used to control the people and let “barbarians take over the city.”
“This is very urgent business, ladies and gentlemen,” Hitchens said. “I beseech you, resist it while you still can. And before the right to complain will be taken away from you – which will be the next thing.
“You’ll be told you can’t complain because you’re ‘Islamophobic.’ The term is already being introduced into the culture as if it was an accusation of race-hatred… The barbarians never take a city until someone holds the gates open for them.”
Hitch being utterly brilliant & predicting with perfect clarity how "islamaphobia" would be used to silence & smear.pic.twitter.com/Tqal61n75L
