Not a mistake

Leave aside my outrage - I can hardly type the words - that Swedish election officials should dare to correct immigrants when they pick up the "wrong" ballot at the polling booth. Why is it so hard to believe Muslim women might choose to vote for the Sweden Democrats, the only party that might ban the burka and save them from the captivity of their families and the psychopathic misogyny of Dark Ages custom?

The Left finds this sort of thinking incomprehensible, of course. Progressives have decided they represent the good - it is a matter of pure assertion - and are consequently absolved of any actual political alliance they make with medievalism and fascists of every stripe (hands up if the words "Molotov-Ribbentrop" never came up in history class).

But there is no reason anyone on "the right" should consent to the concrete delusional thinking of the Left in this or in anything else. Not when today's only authentic feminism and anti-racism, and the only hope for the liberation of a quarter of mankind from the Dark Ages, is championed by conservatives.
