Strong Cities Weaken Us

You have to hand it to the United Nations.

They use words in such a way as to make the objectionable seem acceptable or even positive.

That is actually a common characteristic of the left. Think ‘safe schools’, the red Marxists known as ‘Greens’, and the fascists who call themselves anti-fascists.

Now there’s a new agenda hiding under an innocuous banner.

It’s known as Strong Cities Network (SCN) and according to their website the SCN was:

‘…launched in 2015 at the UN General Assembly to mount a city-led response against hate, polarisation and extremism in all its forms.

They claim to be driven by a number of fundamental principles:

  1. A commitment to address violent extremism in all its forms.
  2. A recognition that violent extremism and prevention efforts should not be associated with any particular religion, nationality, or ethnic group.
  3. A commitment to work in partnership with local communities on an inclusive, collaborative, and non-discriminatory basis and in compliance with international human rights standards.

It all sounds so fabulous. The UN will help stamp out violence, racism, and extremism in cities across the board.

The only problem is they only seem to do so by associating violent extremism with particular nationalities and ethnic groups.

Oddly, this association isn’t the one that most regular people think of.

You see, SCN seems to be almost exclusively focused on excusing the violent criminals in our cities and blaming their actions on ‘ethnocentric ideas that fail to reflect the ethnically diverse reality.

The website seems to have a very large focus on the events of 9/11 and the global reaction as a cause of societal problems. No blame is found on the terrorists who launched the heinous attack or the ideology they (and many others) use to justify it.

The SCN even have a rehabilitation plan for the brides if ISIS while blaming the United States for forcing them to run away to join a bunch of butchers as their chattel.

In places like Nigeria, the SCN see Islamic group Boko Haram as a product of a lack of job and educational opportunities rather than the hate-filled book that serves as their informative texts.

It’s worth noting that Boko Haram don’t support women’s education and only want men’s knowledge to extend as far as the Quran.

HOODWINKED! Why Australia’s ‘miracle’ economy is a farce

But in the eyes of the UN, it’s all someone else’s fault.

This garbage is being promulgated all around the world…including here in Australia.

Unsurprisingly, the only Australian government to sign up to this tosh is the state of Victoria, which is listed as a founding member. The SCN says they:

Supported the State Government of Victoria (Australia) to identify, analyse and map online anti-Muslim narratives.

No mention is made of the terror attacks carried out by Islamic extremists, nor of the gangs that caused mayhem in the state leading to Greg Hunt saying ‘African gang crime in some areas in particular is clearly out of control.

This ‘whitewashing’ of extremism and violence is all too common among agencies of the UN and their allies in the media and government.

It’s the same in groups like BLM and others.

They all want to paint a picture that the majority population is the cause of whatever problem they identify as needing to be fixed.

The facts don’t matter when pushing a narrative that is so easily swallowed by the indoctrinated, the ignorant, and those behind the restructure of civilisation as we know it.
