I was bantering with my friend @NeoLegendX when he inadvertently brought up a topic that I thought was very interesting. Soon after, comments began to be deleted by either the channel Moderator or YouTube itself. Here’s the context of our conversation:
NeoLegendX: @A Berean any interesting topics you stumbled upon
A Berean: @NeoLegendX Bored?
NeoLegendX: @A Berean corona has us on lockdown
You know that
And here I thought we dont need to rehearse
A Berean: @NeoLegendX Some of us “old folk” still get to work, even in lockdown…
NeoLegendX: @A Berean its cause you in America
They only care about money there
You can be replaced by a Mexican next election
You are in your late 20s
You are not old
A Berean: @NeoLegendX I hope you’re joking, ’cause that was too funny! I think they work for the man in your country as well.
NeoLegendX: @A Berean well
To a degree they think of you as replaceable
Same with me
It’s the way
But yeah, we are slaves to the west world so we have to obey
We even were forced to hold our first ever LGBTQ parade
Made me sick
A Berean: @NeoLegendX You are slaves only to those who you allow to be your master(s). Now, if you were in KSA, they’d hand you cash just for having a pulse! Regarding your LGBTQ parade, you don’t have to go to it nor watch it. There is debauchery everywhere there is freedom. You can limit debauchery, but then you’d have to limit freedom and rule by fear. As Mahmoud Ahmadinejad once famously boasted, “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.” Quite true. They tend to suffer from rapid deceleration after falling off rooftops — or deceleration with their neck inconveniently caught in a noose..
NeoLegendX: @A Berean seems like I’m getting deleted
But you know my standings on those 2
Ship all them to America
It was then that my reply was deleted as well. Since it was deleted and I didn’t have a copy, I recreated it as best I could here:
A Berean: @NeoLegendX I don’t think shipping them to America is much of a solution. You inadvertently brought up the reason why the West tends to lump Islamic countries in with totalitarian ones. Strictly ordered societies must reduce freedom and rule by fear — I don’t see a way around it. If Islam requires submitting to Allah’s will (willingly or unwillingly), and we know from the Quran that a good portion of society will not submit, your choices for maintaining Islamic “peace” are limited. Devout Muslims are fine with submitting. Nominal Muslims will conform outwardly from fear or social pressure but inwardly will be ambivalent or even bitter towards Islam. Non-Muslims can live as dhimmi, be “shipped to America” (eg. emigrate), or risk death. This is a broad stroke depiction, but I think it is consistent with what I read in the Islamic source texts.
I invite @NeoLegendX (or anyone else) to continue the conversation, without YouTube censorship. Where am I wrong about this?
