When a culture's indoctrinated self-loathing and lack of rational principles (i.e. individual liberty, limited constitutional government, etc.) meets the power of law, and the government's monopoly on the use of force, this is what happens.
For a layperson's definiton of "dhimmitude," see here.
In summary, this is a categorized roundup of domestic and international acts of "official" dhimmitude --- submission by governments, and the agencies and institutions they control, to the intimidation and demands of radical Islamists (most often disguised as "civil rights" activists) --- that isn't available anywhere else.
From "official" acts that enable militant Islamism (Muslim supremacism), to ostracizing or prosecuting anyone who criticizes or opposes it, to whitewashing the reality of it, to looking the other way when one's culture is being progressively balkanized and subverted by it, this blogpost links you to information that is vital to understanding the true depth and breadth of this phenomenon, both here in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Note how all of these stories have one common theme: governmental agencies, institutions (including schools), figures and/or affiliated groups who:
Have the power of law behind them --- meaning, the power to initiate the use of physical force against citizens
Have subverted reason and a rational concept of justice in order to create special laws, and/or provide special considerations/exemptions to radical Islamists, to avoid even potentially offending their feelings --- with little or no consideration for ours
The following, extensive series of links are divided into two main categories:
(1) "Official" dhimmitude in the U.S., andEach category is divided into the following subcategories: (a) Education, (b) National Security, (c) Legislation & Criminal Justice, and (d) Miscellaneous (mostly focusing on state-subsidized communications; e.g. the BBC, PBS, etc.).
(2) "Official" dhimmitude in other Western nations.
Also see: "WHEN WILL IT ALL END?" and KEY UPDATES at the bottom of this thread.
Hat-tips to fans of JQWorld who've sent in story links, and to stories sourced from the real heavy-lifters who document these things, primarily JihadWatch, DhimmiWatch, Daniel Pipes, AmericanThinker, LittleGreenFootballs, AtlasShrugs2000, The Jawa Report, Family Security Matters, The Gathering Storm and BrusselsJournal.
"Official" Dhimmitude in the U.S.
BLOCKBUSTER FROM NRO (via LGF): The Wahabbification of American education; while we're supposedly "at war" with jihadist terror, one of its chief sponsors, Saudi Arabia, has been quietly injecting Islamist-whitewashing, jihadist-appeasing doctrines into U.S. schoolbooks.
Proposal to build a taxpayer-funded, state-of-the-art NYC Islamic school (madrassas), the Khalil Gibran International Academy, is now an official "go," despite objections of concerned parents and citizens. Is this but the first of a new trend towards mass dhimmitude? Pamela at AtlasShrugs2000 has the story in detail, HERE; read the detailed background of this issue by Dr. Daniel Pipes, HERE.

WHEN WILL IT ALL END?
It will end when everyday Americans finally stand up and say that each of our citizens --- regardless of their religious, ethnic, racial, economic, gender or political characteristics --- have equal rights before the law, but that in a culture built atop the principle of liberty and constitutionally-limited government, none have special rights, privileges or considerations, whether they comprise 1%, or 51%, or 99% of our population.
This principle is especially apt when one group of people becomes intent on imposing their totalitarian edicts on a school, town, city, state or an entire nation. It does not matter whether this imposition occurs all at once, or gradually, by degree --- by the thousands of little, seemingly inconsequential surrenders that escape notice or scrutiny by journalists and educators, often because they themselves are either supportive of this transformation, or are unwittingly facilitating it. But eventually, all those little surrenders add up, especially when one is faced with a patient, determined and resourceful opponent, acting on what they believe to be unimpeachable principles, regardless of whether they are the polar opposite of those underlying the host culture's.
* * *
The moment that liberty-loving Americans and others in the Western world stand up and proclaim, in unison, "NO!" to the subversion of the basic principles that permit civilized co-existence, things will begin to change --- but not a moment before.
The foundation of this process is knowledge, and the most precious knowledge currently missing from this non-debate in America is the actual nature, history and structure of the U.S. Constitution --- the human-focused (as opposed to mystically-focused) principles it is built upon, which are designed to enable people of differing backgrounds and viewpoints to live and work and pursue happiness in peace, on Earth, during their lifetimes.
And the foundation of our Constitution is the natural rights of the individual, which our government was constructed to protect. This is what is being targeted, and subverted --- not only by America's avowed enemies, but as is indicated so abundantly, above, by those in positions of authority in our culture.
A principled, successful "NO!" can only be based on knowledge of these issues, and the public diffusion of that knowledge is largely dependent on YOU.
Bookmark this thread, visit it regularly (as it is updated on a weekly basis, with new items placed at the top of JQWorld), and forward it on to your friends and family. Follow the links. Educate yourself on the reality of what is happening to America, then ACT on that knowledge.
Write letters to legislators, the news media and all those in positions of authority that you see capitulating to liberty-subverting ideas and proposals. Learn about and join principled groups that are dedicated to this fight.
America can and must be saved. It will be saved when individuals are aware, motivated, and organized to finally start fighting back against those who are intent on --- or are willfully or unconsciously facilitating --- its destruction.
JonQuixoteWorld will be on the lookout for the day that American and other Western governments finally decide to start recognizing and honoring the freedom philosophy, and speaking out and acting against the very real threat that all liberty-loving people currently face.
