In Demand Everywhere

ESW Copenhagen Nov. 2010

Someome at Politically Incorrect has noticed the extensive media coverage that Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has garnered over the last few weeks, culminating in the article published yesterday in Wienerin.

Many thanks to JLH for translating this brief piece from PI:

The New Figurehead of Islam Critics

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff really ought to be downright grateful to Veronika Dolna, the editor of the leftist Viennese magazine NEWS. Since Dolna covertly attended one of the 39-year old’s seminars in November, 2009, and subsequently entered a complaint of “hate crime” against the daughter of a former diplomat, for her everything has been on an upward trend. Berlin, Washington, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Jerusalem, Paris — since then, she has been in demand everywhere as a speaker. And to cap it all off, now a multi-page report on the self-declared feminist in the Austrian women’s magazine, WIENERIN. May it continue like this in 2011!

From our point of view, of course, Elisabeth’s heightened media profile has been a real boost for the cause. It has catapulted a well-informed critic of sharia into a prominent position as a spokeswoman for the movement, where she can utilize her eloquence in two languages to bring our message to a wider audience.

Not quite the result that NEWS expected. Now Veronika Dolna gets to learn the meaning of the phrase “unintended consequences”. Can anybody tell us what that is in German?

  1. Unerwartete Folgen!

    This is a very important trial for everyone in Austria – she is being tried under a form of European shariah. If I stated that I found the Ratzinger’s stand on condoms irresponsible and the effect of his doctrines criminal and causing great anguish to innocent women – I should not be breaking the law.
    If I state the same about Mohammed – it is hate speach.

  2. sorry – unbeabsichtigte Folgen.

    Also ‘unerwartet’ by the News certainly. One wonders why – are they stupid?

  3. Unintended consequences = Unbeabsichtigte Wirkung.

    This story of Frau Sabaditsch Wolff shows that the precense of Muslim communities is the central question in Austrian politics, just as in The Netherlands and Denmark. No matter what the politically correct forces in the judicary and media try in order to surpress dissent, their messages change shape in the mind of the public, due to the irrepresseble nature of Islam and the fact that the Muslim community has become too big to ignore the consequences of their presence.



  4. To mind comes the German idiom “Jede Konsequenz führt zum Teufel”.

    “Consequences lead to the Devil”.



  5. She is being prosecuted because the consequences of what she says amounts to making people “hate” Islam. Therefore Elizabeth is a neo-nazi hate propagandist. With that logic in mind it is safe to say that Veronika Dolna is a neo-nazi enabler and is probably secretly in cahoots with Elizabeth. Veronika Dolna should also be prosecuted.

    And after that we will start putting our mothers on trial for giving birth “without the child’s prior permission”.

  6. Snouck was on the right track, but I don’t think he’s a native speaker.

    How about “unbeabsichtete Auswirkungen?” I like that better than “unerwartete Folgen,” somehow “Folgen” sounds too heavy and legalistic.

    Froehliche Weihnachten,
