Detroit's Iron Curtain

Detroit News editorial page editor Nolan Finley sounds off again today in his Sunday column over the self-destructive racism of Detroit’s leaders. (“Hey Martha! Ich bin ein Detroiter!”).

Hard to believe that anyone could steal Monica Conyers' thunder as the separatist provocateur of the Detroit City Council, but danged if Martha Reeves isn't trying.

The councilwoman who in her diva days helped put Motown on the map now wants to narrowly define Detroit's borders and enforce a strict copyright on the word "Detroiter."

Reeves let comedian Jay Leno know that if you aren't south of Eight Mile, you aren't in the D.

This is the third week in a row Finley has used his column to gnaw this bone of Detroit's separatist, segregationist leadership. That kind of focus is unusual, as columnists hate returning to the same topic so soon. And it especially shows guts, because Finley won't stop talking about race from the wrong side of the PC line. This Cobo Hall business must really be getting to him. I appreciate him for writing about it, because it’s been getting to me, too.

Some people are unhappy with Finley because he lets Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi, an Iranian agent whose cover is leader of a local mosque, spout off on the News op-ed page. Considering what a poor job U.S. law enforcement does infiltrating mosques so we can find out what goes on in there, I’m personally happy to have an imam of Elahi’s pedigree sounding off in one of our dailies: that way we can read for ourselves how his mind works.

For instance, here’s some vintage Elahi from March 3rd:
U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., with the International Free Press Society and the Center for Security Policy, brought the Dutch politician Geert Wilders to Washington to defame Islam and Muslims by showing his 15-minute anti-Quran film in the U.S. Senate building.

This man was banned from entering England in mid-February because British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said Wilders is guilty of "extreme anti-Muslim hate."

Yet Kyl invited Wilders to display his propaganda flick in front of Congress, disrespecting our new administration under the cover of freedom of speech.[!] ("Obama's outreach to Muslims improves U.S. image
But I digress. I only meant to give Finley kudos for dragging into the disinfecting daylight the rotten open secret of Detroit’s racist political leadership--an exposure that is long overdue.

For those of you who wonder why I care about this subject at all, I've discussed in the past, for instance, here and here, why it is I believe
that if we can’t talk about race, we can’t talk about jihad. Not because jihad and race are the same thing, (they are not the same thing!) but because the same self-censoring tricks that were deployed by race hustlers, (and then gay-rights activists) to prevent Americans from being able to speak, or even think critically about racial matters (or homosexuality), have been taken up and perfected by jihadist spokesmen and defenders.
Whether you like Finley or dislike him, his dogged persistence on this subject makes him the equivalent of those West Berliners who started in on the Berlin Wall with sledgehammers.

It is funny how the propagandist Elahi calls the Fitna film propaganda.

Fitna is 17 minutes long. It contains nothing but excerpts from the Qur'an and media clippings about real events.

Did Elahi just defame his own holy book? Free speech is very dangerous, indeed.
