The origin of “political correctness” or cultural “Marxism” can be found in the early parts of the 20th century from the Frankfurt School which was the headquarters for the communist scheming in Germany.
In the Czech Republic, President Milos Zeman refused to apologize for comments he made during a speech at the Israeli Embassy in Prague on May 25 at a reception to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day. Quoting several verses from the Koran that call on Muslims to kill Jews, Zeman said that Islam was to blame for the attack at the Jewish Museum in Brussels that killed four people. He also said:
“There is a term, ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.’ This term I consider to be a euphemism for ‘POLITICAL COWARDICE.’ Therefore, let me not be cowardly.”
The new Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned Zeman’s speech, saying, “It is only appropriate that President Milos Zeman apologizes to the millions of Muslims worldwide for his deeply offensive and hateful anti-Islam statements. Further, a OIC statement said: “The Secretary General reiterated that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance and that terrorism should not be equated to any race or religion; a stance upheld by all major UN texts on the subject of countering terrorism. He added that the OIC countries share a profound respect for all religions and condemn any message of hatred and intolerance.”
On June 10, a spokesman for the Czech government said Zeman would not be apologizing for his statements. “President Zeman definitely does not intend to apologize. For the president would consider it blasphemy to apologize for the quotation of a sacred Islamic text.”
The Gates of Vienna blog summed it up this way: “As far as I am aware, Milos Zeman is the first Western head of state to tell the OIC to go jump in a lake. So this is a historic occasion.” I found it refreshing to hear someone stand up for the world.
This religion is confusing in that you have this one religion whereby they cannot seem to agree due to the battles in the past among the various tribes; and, now it seems the religion has been hijacked by terrorists. Where is the peace and tolerance and who is in control of the religion?
