Legoland's homophobic, misogynistic, anti-Semitic "Family Fun Day"

By the Grace of Allah, on the back of our highly successful 1st Eid Fun Day at Chessington World of Adventures – we are launching our 2nd Family Fun Day at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort – with the hope that the two events will become the standard and annual fundays for decades to come, insha’Allah.
It sounds like a blasphemous Monty Python satire, but this is the declaration on the website of the Muslim Research and Development Foundation, promoting a Muslim "Family Fun Day" at Legoland, Windsor. It is a cyber-minaret call to halal entertainment - "a true alternative in which like minded families can enjoy safe and enjoyable time while at the same time conducive to their faith".

While some people are clearly irked and object strongly to the concept of a "Muslim Day", His Grace would like to make it clear that he has absolutely no problem with it: the event is an out-of-season, legally-contracted private booking - the sort of commercial activity Legoland might enjoy with any group, enterprise or corporation.

But there has been a certain twisting of the story locally - specifically by the Windsor & Eton Express - which seems determined to present all the objections as a kind of Far-Right, hate-filled, Islamophobic, neo-Nazi protest against Muslims per se. The abuse received by Legoland on Facebook and Twitter is, apparently, being reported to the police.

Except that many of these objections are not aimed at Muslims, or even against the faith of Islam: they are legitimate expressions of outrage that the key face behind the Muslim Research and Development Foundation is the one Haitham al-Haddad, who is widely known for his - how shall His Grace put this? - "anti-Western" views. He makes no secret of the fact that he loathes liberal democracy, which he deems to be a "filthy" political system, and supports suicide bombing and other acts of terrorism as part of "defensive jihad and therefore a ‘commandment’ of Islam". He is what one may describe as a Palestinian "hate cleric", who is watched by the security services and has been barred from numerous British universities.

This lover of Lego wants sharia law adopted in the United Kingdom, presumably to ensure that this Lego-Mohammed blasphemy is punished severely (and THIS outrage even moreso). He lauds Osama bin Laden; supports female genital mutilation; wants music banned; demands gender segregation; and deplores “the scourge of homosexuality” which, he maintains, is a "criminal act”.

As one might expect, he believes Jews are the “enemies of God” and “descendants of apes and pigs” (which, of course, are comments "taken out of context" - you may decide for yourselves HERE).

The question is not why is Legoland content to promote a "Muslim Day" (which, incidentally, is open to people of all faiths and none): it is why is Legoland prepared to tarnish its reputation by associating with a known anti-gay, anti-Semitic, misogynistic hate-preacher. It may be a fun day out for the children, but how many of the girls are aware that this man wants to remove their clitoris for the glory of Allah?

Legoland insist that they welcome people of all faiths and of diverse beliefs: "We certainly do not discriminate in any way,” they told The Express. It seems to His Grace that, instead of protesting at the gates, the EDL ought to test this: they might try to hire the park for their own "fun day" of "patriotic celebration" (open, of course, to all those who do not share their nationalistic ideology).

Would Legoland care if Nick Griffin were behind a booking? Would they object to a group of Christians hiring the park if its members (say) opposed same-sex marriage? Or would the company's executives withhold the contract (or, indeed, cancel the event or "reconsider" its policy) on account of it breaching corporate diversity policy?

"We certainly do not discriminate in any way."

In ANY way?

Would that include this definition of discrimination?:

the ability to notice and value quality; the ability to appreciate good quality or taste.

I am, of course, quoting out of context, but it's interesting how the meaning of a word can change over time.

Discrimination once had, within context, a positive connotation. It now seems to be unequivocally negative.

"We do not discriminate in any way" remains hypothetical until put to the test.

An EDL Fun Day, or BNP Fun Day - or not - is the only way to find out if the assertion is a reality.

I would be very keen to see what would happen if, as YG suggested, EDL, or those opposed to SSM were to try and book a Fun-Day at Legoland. I suspect that the theme-park would mysteriously be fully booked for the next five years.

What this really shows is the naivity and hypocrisy of "equality" and "diverstity" in its current socio-political context. I remember about a year ago, the Coalition for Marriage (or was it Christian Concern?) being banned from Westminster Hall, and other venues, where they wanted to hold a conference on SSM. Thats "equality" and "diversity" for you.

"Equality" and "Diversity" are an illusion of the Left. They are based on intellectual sloppiness and laziness, not to say selective blindness and prejudice.

There have been a few cases recently of businesses wading into the PC arena (Coca-Cola, M&S for example). I'm surprised they haven't realised that they are walking into a minefield that poptentially be their downfall.

If it is an anti-west sponsored event then it is up to participants to decide if they want to be associated with it... Turn up or dont.

If its not so sponsored, it isn't their fault that an anti-western nutter is 'helping' to promote it - is it?

My guess is that the statement ought to read, "We do not discriminate in any way unless we disagree with it. (Or are too scared of it to say no.")

Now, you might think a fine fellow like the Inspector General would be similarly outraged as many of the rest of you are, but he’s going to have to disappoint.

You see, he strongly believes in separate development of the races. That way, neither side becomes contaminated by the other. After all, it’s not as if Islam and Christendom will ever come to a close understanding, so why even bother, what !

Do you know, a representation of the repulsive prophet would be a damn good idea. Of course, Lego themselves wouldn’t be able to oblige directly, as one doubts they wouldn’t want their factories blown up and their staff with their throats cut, so perhaps some firm can do the business on the quiet, using Lego compatible dimensions. That way, young white children can be given one, and after being given a short history of the blighters life, can employ those useful plastic bricks to build a maximum security prison complex to keep him.

Tally ho !

A fun a day out with one’s Islamic family would be a marvellous welcome back for the 350 or so brave Jihadis who have recently returned from doing sterling aid work in Syria, don’t you think ?

The Inspector General has been annoyed to find there were NO politicians waiting at the airport to greet them on arrival. Unforgivable I say, where was Keith Vaz when you needed him. Instead, just a few MI5 men taking pictures from a distance.

Anyway, this shocking ignoring of their brave contribution needs it’s due reward. So, the Inspector General is going to approach the City of London to arrange for this happy few, this band of brothers, to be given the freedom of the city. This involves, amongst other things, the right to parade through the city, “with bayonets fixed and colours unfurled”, and, in recognition of their muslim faith, “with assault rifles firing into the air while donned in suicide vest, primed”. The honour also grants “The beheading of one hapless Christian soldier on Tower Green”.

The day to end with several car bombs going off around 8pm, while the indigenous population shout as one, “God save England !”

Plenty more where the above came from, you know. But one will stop at this point.

Though the Inspector’s mind is a cornucopia of the most wondrous and imaginative of bullshit acquired over his decades, he wouldn't wish to over egg the point.

Besides, if we continue to lick our valued alien immigrants behinds in the manner to which they’ve probably become accustomed too, there is a greater chance that more of us will die naturally in our beds than would otherwise be the case...

The most startling thing about this article is that Haitham al-Haddad has been banned from numerous British universities.

If it isn’t this man, it will be another, and then another ad—to all intents and purposes—infinitum. The Islam we have invited to dwell among us, the Islam our Prime Minister tells us makes an ‘incredible’ contribution to our national life, requires girls be mutilated. Al-Haddad is doing no more than expounding his faith. It is the faith that is at fault.

Muslims have played a blinder. In the league of feared minorities, they walk the championship year after year and we cower before them.

Mr Inspector, after your successful re-education campaign on Pink News, it is surely time for you to turn your metaphysical guns on to a new target, militant Islam.

This communicant urges you to commence the attack without delay, and do let us know how you are going. Please advise which Islamic websites yield the greatest outrage in the face of logic, reason and the word of the Lord. It's not that the rest of His Grace's communicants would be afraid of the consequences of such a sally, it's just that you seem more gifted than most in this sort of enterprise.

What do you think?

No, No, Mr Inspector @ 22.13, you misunderestimate.

The hound is suffused with proselytising zeal and seeks only to assay the infidel in the white heat of the flames of the Truth. However, as a lowly canine he lacks authority, status and credibility. Now that HJ has conferred a richly deserved and long-overdue Honarary Doctorate upon yourself, what better use for this credential than to refute the Islamic apostasy, forthwith.

Your Grace: For small places, Windsor and Eton (and even Datchet) sure are featuring in the media lately. The appeal to our resident aliens is terrific! Not long ago we had some unpronounceable African posing with arrogant elegance at the gates to the castle; and now we have this, imposing itself on those presently beset in the nearby floods.

What's the game? Not really Lego, one knows; and surely they're not exploring the significance of Runnymede and Magna Carta.

So one appreciates that: The hound is suffused with proselytising zeal and seeks only to assay the infidel in the white heat of the flames of the Truth. Bravo, Mr. bluedog!!!

Thank you, non mouse @ 0209, thank you so much.

Far from motivating Dr Inspector, my somewhat florid post seems to have added to his reticence. After all, if His Grace can bravely post a Lego image of the Prophet, visiting a few Muzzie websites and giving them a bit of curry isn't too much to ask, one would think.

Jack. The honorary doctorate is most appropriate and accepted. One was reading the other day how various citadels of academia in the civilised world as well as Africa fell over themselves in the rush to so garner the vile Mugabe, only a few years later to withdraw the accolade.

Bluedog. The Inspector will do this for you. He will teach you to walk on your hind legs and to wear a shirt, tie and a hat. And to converse politely with the ladies and not to lick your privates in company. After all, if we can make citizens out of rabid muslims who roam the Islamic world, looking for trouble, we can make a gentleman out of you.

Absolutely splendid Ars. Well sourced, that man. That’s the brute alright, no mistaking the evil one. Ah look, further into the site there’s also an earlier representation of him with a scimitar in each hand. Good Lord, that IS him, the very same as depicted by Cranmer in his post ! I must say, this BrickArms concern is damn fearless to knock those things out by the score. Bravo them ! And what’s this, they’ve modelled the Thompson sub machine gun too ! They’ll be damn handy to arm the criminal asylum orderlies with when keeping an eye on him…

Cc. bluedog, Happy Jack

Congratulations on your new appointment, Inspector! As you start out on your mission to penetrate, disrupt, and dismay the Saracen hosts, you may like to stock up on some additional arguments to deploy against them. Here, for your enjoyment, are some drawn from the CWR review of a new book by Robert Reilly, the author of The Closing of the Muslim Mind:

Reilly holds that the real problem with social, political, and economic structures in Islam is theological: the “inherited intellectual substructures.” . . .

The Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, in 1990 appended to the 1948 United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, subordinates the latter document to Shari’a. . . .

Muslim apologists erroneously equate the Christian message on faith and reason with the splinter post-Enlightenment project and the rationalist derailment of today.

It would seem that Islam can go wherever any other religion dare not or is not allowed to go.
'Appeasement' whether from fear or ignorance is a well trodden path and the end result of this tactic is well documented in history.

Len, The Explorer

In many cases, no doubt, from ignorance and in many cases, too, from fear. But in some cases out of sheer hatred. How else do you explain behaviour like that of George Galloway, for instance, who was a communist until the Soviet Union collapsed and then went shopping for another enemy of Western democracy to go crawling to?

Opportunism? If you have a primarily-Muslim constituency, you become an honorary Muslim yourself.

Including a line on Israel that out-Palestinians even the Palestinians.

But you're right.

1. I hate Christianity.

2. Islam is an historic foe of Christianity.

3. Therefore, Islam is my friend.

Thanks Inspector, @ 19.05.

I have supplied my children with Lego weaponry from BrickArms, to make up for the PC accessories offered by Lego itself.

Very popular with other children (and adults) as well, who know a good thing when they see it.

BrickArms also does a fine looking WWII German officer (complete with stubble and Iron Cross). Far less unsettling than Mr Black, though.

Uncle Brian:

Ever see that You Tube clip of the Cambridge Union debate where Galloway walked out?

There was an Israeli student on the other side, and Galloway does not debate with Israelis.

You can see his point. To argue with an Israeli would have been to acknowledge a legitimacy that, for Galloway, simply does not exist.

18 February 2014 at 13:27  
Blogger Uncle Brian said...

Opportunism rather than hatred? I wonder how true Muslims see Galloway. As nothing more than a freeloader, nonchalantly trousering the salary he gets paid by the ayatollahs to toe their line in public? Is his anti-Western fanaticism really no more than a mask he puts on, having sold his political convictions to the highest bidder?

Chaps, the Inspector does not quite know what to say. The offer to get one’s magnifying glass out on Islam is tempting, but one must decline. You see, his specialty is fighting degeneration within Christendom. Besides, the most excellent Mr Rottenborough has his finger on the Islamic pulse, as well as another one on FGM, so it’s not as if the site is lacking in expertise on the subject.

So the Inspector declines your impressive, concerted and orchestrated cajoling, but will remember this time fondly.

Right, where’s the way out of this thread ?
