      WHY THE LEFT LOVE ISLAM

      Why does the Left excuse in Islam everything they once claimed to oppose?
      Excerpt from <http://drsanity.blogspot.com/2007/02/not-weird-at-all.html>

      Everywhere the leftists march and strut their stuff, you will see the tacit
      support given, either consciously or unconsciously, to all the thugs of the
      Middle East (and elsewhere) who engage in jihad, murder, and the most vile
      anti-semitism, sexism and homophobia. Yes, on the surface it certainly does
      seem weird, if you only listen to what they are saying. But when you
      consider the underlying philosophical principles of the left and those of
      radical Islam and then observe their behaviors, you will discover the
      philosophical harmony that exists between them.

      Islam--particularly the extreme elements-has easily been able to take
      maximum advantage of the Achilles heel of the West; a vulnerability that has
      come into existence as a result of the rarely articulated philosophical and
      political strategies adopted by the political left when they abandoned
      classical liberalism. In the table below are the philosophical elements of
      Classical Liberalism versus Postmodernism. Over the last 50 years or so, the
      values of the West , the beacon of classical liberal ideas, have
      incrementally been eroded and undermined as Western intellectuals in the
      academic world have embraced postmodern ideas. The two world views are not
      compatible.



      Fundamentally threatened by classical liberal values, the world view of
      radical Islam happens to be entirely compatible with the new postmodern
      philosophy. The essential anti-reality, anti-reason, anti-human collectivism
      that underlies radical Islam is practically indistinguishable from today's
      leftist thought processes. Of course, the particular content and the
      ultimate destination are unique for each; but only to the extent of the
      differing utopias they each desire to impose on the world.

      That they each desire to impose their own version of utopia on the rest of
      us is the metaphysical and epistemological glue that binds them together.
      Either we submit willingly, or they will use any and all coercive
      strategies--including violence and terrorism--to bring us around to their
      way of worship. The left does it for our own "good"; Islam does it for the
      sake of Allah.

      Despite the rhetoric of "peace" and "love" and "brotherhood" and "justice"
      that emanates from the left and from Islam (the "religion of peace"), both
      subscribe to their own unique brand of "jihad" (the political left prefers
      to call it "revolution"). Both are quite comfortable with initiating and
      using force up to and including terrorism to achieve their ends. Of course,
      they generally couch it in terms of self-defense--and that is why identity
      politics and the quest for ultimate victimization from the imperialist/
      capitalistist West (Marx's "oppressed" vs "oppressor" dialectic applied via
      multiculturalism) come into play.

      The vulnerability created within Western culture has been effectively used
      to optimize Islam's own religious, political, psychological, and military
      objectives. And they have been successful precisely because they are in
      philosophical and ethical step with the political left of Europe and
      America.
