We were all saddened by the premature death of Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and one of the most imaginative and innovative entrepreneurs in history.
However, far from being respectful towards the memory of one of the men who has (inadvertently) made it possible for them to disseminate their turgid hate campaigns, the bogotariat has taken the opportunity to come to a breathtakingly stupid conclusion.
So it seems according to cultural studies expert Horace Lim, Muslims are somehow not “capable” of producing the sort of creative genius possessed by Jobs (and by the non-Americans Horace compares him with).
Never mind that the work of Edison, Picasso and Da Vinci were ultimately products of the cultural and scientific explosion of the European Renaissance which in turn was a product of the cultural and scientific flowering of Europe during the period of the Islamic Caliphate.
In Edison’s case, would his work have been possible without the invention of modern mathematics (a Muslim development of Hindu ideas)?
But much to Horace’s surprise and chagrin this poster produces the following information
Shock horror! Steve Jobs’ biological father is a Syrian Muslim!
One can now imagine a steady stream of bogots, foil hats firmly clamped on pointy heads, returning their iPhones, iPods and iPads to their nearest Apple store in disgust, perhaps terrified about the Muslamic rays emanating from the OS from its Muslamic Rayguns.
We really don’t care whether Jobs was of Arab Muslim descent or a Calathumpian from Kazakhstan, but to the bogotry, “breeding” is regarded with all the fervour of a race-horse owner, especially when it comes to people of non-European non-Christian ancestry.
In fact Steve Jobs is just one of many prominent Americans either of Muslim descent, converts to Islam or who are currently Muslim who have been outstanding contributors to US life and culture. Muslim contact with the Americas are widely acknowledged to go back to the 12th Century.
And as far as Jobs’ Arab heritage, one Arab described Jobs as the world’s second most famous Arab (the first being the Prophet)
Perhaps the most famous American of Muslim descent is US President Barack Obama. President Obama’s father Barack Hussein Obama Sr and stepfather Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo were both Muslim by birth, though Obama Senior usually described himself as an atheist or agnostic. This of course has produced a collective buzzing and swarming of rednecks across the US, like blowflies at a barbecue, with echoes resonating here amongst the fuckwittery “intelligentsia” of Straya.
Of course the real reason for all this toxic spew is because Obama is black. But we don’t say that do we now Bonnie?
