The following ad for the German state railway service Deutsche Bahn is loaded with so much saccharine PC that it was almost too nauseating for me to watch.
The new DB [Deutsche Bahn] Advertisement: A Lesson in PC-Tolerance
The image ads of the DB rarely fit real life. From that angle, the new spot is nothing new. It has nothing to do with the services of the DB; instead it carries out the duty of political education. It is the shaking of a moralistic index finger concerning tolerance and the hijab.
In real life on German trains, however, reality looks entirely different. Travelers avoid direct eye contact with other travelers, simply to protect their health from the increasingly intense atmosphere like that on the Orient Express.
This is a spot that purveys a positive image of Muslims in the media in order to distract from the real problems with Islam. The Muslima student studying medicine is rather an exception than the rule.
She’s portrayed as an educated but “autonomous” woman wearing a hijab. In reality hijab-wearing women do not seek eye contact with foreign and kuffar men. Maybe the DB should spend more time on their real issues: punctuality, for instance.
As Aristotle said: Tolerance is the last virtue of a dying society. And in current times, once could add this: It’s also a form of cowardice.
