PC in the UK: British PM demands that we stop called Islamic state, Islamic state

(London) It never fails to amaze me how political correctness finds new things to object to. So, for example, after years of being told that calling somebody black was offensive and that we should refer to them as 'coloured' I was shocked when I was picked up by a white woman, when I answered her question about somebody by saying "That coloured person over there" by her reprimand that referring to somebody as coloured was 'offensive'. When I asked her how she would define me (I'm coloured) she stated she didn't want to walk down that line and walked away with her moral righteous ass in the air.

The media have been referring to terrorists as... militants, simply because terrorist is a loaded term and that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. But I cannot see how those who go around chopping heads off are trying to militise their captive audience. Terrify? Certainly, as that is what their objective is. I mean, how many news agencies do you know that would publish a picture of Mohammed? Do you think they were militised or were they terrorised into not doing so?

And so it is with Islam. Only last week, after the horrific killings in Tunisia, the British PM David Cameron openly stated, and I quote:
Islam is a religion of “peace”, and that the terrorists’ atrocities are “in the name of a twisted and perverted ideology that we have to confront.”
Today he went a stage further and complained about how we shouldn't be referring to the Islamic state as... Islamic state. I quote:
“I wish the BBC would stop calling it Islamic State because it’s not an Islamic state,” the prime minister said. “What it is, is an appalling, barbarous regime … It’s a perversion of the religion of Islam and many Muslims listening to this programme will recoil every time they hear the words Islamic State.”
You know what, I'm sick to death of all this apologising to Muslims over the ugliness written into Islam's DNA. In the UK, the authorities go well out of their way to fear for Muslims after each and every atrocity carried out in its name. UK child grooming by Muslims was suppressed for over 10 years because nobody wanted to be seen as a... racist.

Female genital mutilation, whilst being outlawed in the UK for 30 years, has yet to see one person done for chopping off the bits of little girls. Here is the NHS page on the odious practice, and note how Muslim/Islam isn't mentioned once. Yet 130,000 are now living in the UK with the curse of FGM between their legs, and 500 British based girls a month are feared to be having it done to them. And that's only the ones we know about.

In the UK, we are constantly reminded that Christianity was evil, Crusades, Spanish inquisition, paedophillic priests, anti-abortion laws, or even having children sing hymns during school assembly. Why, in the UK you are now banned from saying "singing from the same song sheet", in case somebody finds offence.

Yet not only do we allow an intolerant and bigoted ideology to do as it pleases in the UK, we actually are told not to mention the elephant in the room, because it might offend Muslims.

Meanwhile in Iraq, Syria, Tunisia, Somalia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Yemen, Nigeria, Pakistan and lots of other places, Muslims - sorry, followers of a peaceful religion - are not killing others in the most horrible ways going and not uttering the name of their god as they don't do so.
