What the Western Secular Left Knows About Islam

Obama gave a speech at the UN today and, as he takes great pains to do, repeated the progressive mantra that Islam is peaceful, and Muslims are peaceful, the massive amount of global violence committed by Mohammadans is some weird aberration committed by Muslims who apparently don’t know what it means to be Muslim.

The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day. Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies – Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.”

That latter quote seems to come from a Saudi Sheikh who issued a fatwa calling for the deaths of Jews and American soldiers, but putting that aside…

First thing, understand that the intended audience for the Great Islamic Scholar Barack Obama’s lecture was not the Mohammedan terrorists who… oh, by the way… sawed off another infidel’s head today. His words about the peaceful peacefulness that is Islam weren’t directed at the millions of Mohammedan terrorists around the world; and for that matter, neither were George W. Bush’s similar assurances. No, his words were intended to be heard by the bitter clingers in flyover country who might get “war fever” and start dragging every brown person with a foreign-sounding name behind their pick-up trucks. Because in Obama’s mind, that’s what every sister-lovin’ redneck hick in the mid-country (which is everybody outside NYC, DC, and San Francisco to these people) would do if not constantly warned not to by their social superiors.

But apart from that, imagine if Obama were instead pontificating about other religions. What if he said, “Roman Catholicism is a religion of choice, and real Roman Catholics reject the notion that the Pope is infallible and they support abortion.” What if he said, “Every real Jew knows the Orthodox Jews are a fanatical fringe and reject their literal obedience to the Talmud.” People might question his qualifications to make such judgments about religions.

When it comes to religion, the progressive left has two thoughts. 1. All religions are pretty much equal, but Christianity is less equal and 2. All religions are bullsh-t. And the progressive mind can’t move outside that box, and can’t conceive of Islam being other than what progressivism thinks Islam should be; another bullsh-t religion just with browner people and different food. A progressive cannot ask the question “Is there something about Islam that makes it more violent and oppressive than other religions?” This question cannot be asked on the left. It doesn’t compute. It’s like asking a normal person “What does purple smell like?”

The answer to the question about whether Islam is inherently violent and oppressive is actually quite important. I don’t know what the answer is, but I know that formulating an effective, long-term answer to the problem of Mohammedan terrorism depends on answering it correctly. Choosing an answer just because it suits our prejudices is not only intellectually dishonest, it could be fatal.

Whining Leftists Are Never Satisfied

Remember when Barack Obama socialized the student loan industry? Remember how leftists thought this was great because instead of greedy capitalist banks, loans would now be run by a compassionate and wise Government bureaucracy.

Guess what? They’re not happy. They think their Womyn’s Studies and Queerism Studies should be fre e.

Perhaps Obama should do to higher Ed what he did to health care; add 20,000 pages of regulation to it, cap professor salaries, limit the number and types of courses people can take, and raise taxes on textbooks and people with college degrees.

On a related note, Mohammedans in Minnesota are demanding that the Free Food they get from taxpayers and productive people be  Shariah-compliant.

“It’s about human rights also, basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” said Hassan Mohamud, the protesters’ imam.

Gay Marriages for Illegal Immigrants, What Could Be More Progressive Than That?

Reader Steve has found a story that suggests criminal gangs have latched onto gay marriage as a way of getting around immigration laws.

Criminal gangs were offering to arrange sham gay weddings for people wanting to bypass immigration controls within weeks of same sex marriages being made legal in March, a report said.

An investigation by the BBC programme Inside Out discovered that one gang organises sham gay marriages for a £10,000 fee.
Peter and Ricardo, the gang’s leaders, told undercover reporters they had “fixed” weddings “lots of times”.

They offered two potential fake Romanian brides to the reporter, both of whom explicitly stated they were not lesbians but were willing to pretend to be gay and marry anyone for cash.

Gee gosh, it’s almost like they are treating marriage as nothing more than a way of having legal legitimacy so as to access social benefits. Where did they ever get the idea that *that* is what marriage is all about?

Ricardo said he had never had any problems with the police or immigration officers.
He said: “You say ‘I am gay’. No more questions for you. Easy for gay.”

Authorities reluctant to enforce the law because of political correctness? Where have we heard that before?

I wonder if the gangs file lawsuits against caterers who don’t want to participate in the ceremonies.

John Boehner, “I’m Obama’s Best Friend”

So, this happened.

House Speaker John Boehner put comedienne Joy Behar in a headlock this weekend while in the Hamptons campaigning for Republican Lee Zeldin, telling the liberal former co-host of The View, “I am Obama’s best friend.”

This was in response to Behar lecturing Cryin’ Johnny to “Stop obstructing President Obama.”

What disappoints me about this is how this could have been a teaching moment. Granted, [note, the following is solely my opinion and does not reflect the views of other members of this site] Joy Behar is an idiot and would have learned nothing. But couldn’t Boehner have said, “We are not a rubber stamp legislature like in some Third World dictatorship. We have genuine policy differences with the president which, in many cases, reflect the will of the majority of Americans who elected us. Many of us believe the president’s policies are bad for many Americans and for the middle class in particular; and so we do our best to advance alternatives; most of which are obstructed by the leader of the senate, Harry Reid, who won’t even bring our legislation up for a vote.”

And the reason I suspect Boehner didn’t isn’t so much because it would have whistled in one of Behar’s ears and right t’other, but because essentially agrees with the criticism that Republicans are obstructing Obama for the sake of obstruction and if it weren’t for those Tea Party hicks, he could have passed Amnesty, passed a carbon tax, passed a whole bunch of other radical Democrat agenda items, and gone home happily convinced that he had “got something done.”

Sigh.
