Can Insulting Marxism be Considered Blasphemy, Too?

I never liked Germans. Too white and too fascist. But in the last few years, they’ve really come around.

And I was especially impressed to read about how the Germans are applying a blasphemy law to convict one of their own Nazis of insulting Islam.

A German court on Thursday convicted a businessman of insulting Islam by printing the word "Koran" on toilet paper and offering it to mosques…Manfred van H. printed out sheets of toilet paper bearing the word "Koran" shortly after a group of Muslims carried out a series of bomb attacks in London in July 2005. He sent the paper to German television stations, magazines and some 15 mosques…He also offered his toilet paper for sale on the Internet at a price of 4 euros ($4.76) per roll, saying the proceeds would go toward a "memorial to all the victims of Islamic terrorism."

Can you imagine that? Writing the word “Koran” on toilet paper?

Now, as you know, many of our enemies refer to Marxism as a “religion”. Well, let’s agree to that, and then apply blasphemy laws to anyone who insults Marx, his teachings, or any variant of Socialism. Yes, they’re the ones who are the real terrorists! If we put enemies of the state in education camps for socialism blasphemy, it would be a good first step to a world revolution!

If the Germans can do this with anti-Muslim hatred, then Americans can do it with anti-socialist hatred. It succeeded before, and it can succeed again!
