The Left sides with Islamic supremacy, part 2

If you missed it: last weekend, beloved left-wing Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour called for “jihad” (her word) against President Trump.

The Left promptly fell over themselves, not to denounce her use of the term; but rather to denounce anyone so bigoted as to think that the word could have a violent connotation.

Sarsour provided the necessary fig leaf, by bracketing her call for jihad with blather about how Peaceful Mohammed was totes about Speaking Truth To Power. But imagine if, during the Obama administration, a far-right Christian activist – the type who advocates Christian Reconstruction, say, and who had excused an abortion clinic bombing – had called defiantly for “holy war” against President Obama. The Left would have called for that activist’s imprisonment.

We live in a world, remember, where the Left thinks that using a crosshairs metaphor in your election advertising is direct incitement to violence; as is an Internet joke (meme) in which a corporate logo is being pounded on.

But calling for “holy war”? (which is what “jihad” means) No problem…provided the call is left-wing and/or Islamist; that is, directed against America, its President and/or the Right. Once more, Islam and the Left are allies.

    Have you ever tried to reason a 5 year old-spoiled brat throwing a tantrum in the middle of an overstuffed toy aisle at the supermarket?

    I haven’t, but if you have, you do already have a clue about what the fragile creature’s depth of thought process (and expectable level of consistency thereof, by implication) looks like.

  2. Maybe the proper response to them should be house arrest until they decide that that kind of public behavior is not appropriate.

    “Johnny, if you don’t stop that this instant, I’m taking you right home…..okay, that it! We’re going home.”

  4. But calling for “holy war”? (which is what “jihad” means) …..

    Ooooop-sy. Left the gate open ….. the left just loves to argue what the meaning of “is” is rather than deal with the core principles in dispute.

    I am so tired of being told that I have got “jihad” all wrong and that the innocence of Islam is being slurred by my Neanderthal misinterpretation of how dropping gays off of tall buildings is an act of peace in which the offender is released from him prison on earth and goes straight to Allah where he gets a set of Lionel trains and a birdbath full of blue birds, doves and raisins, don’t forget the raisins.

    Every sect from Sunnis, Shi’as to Kharijites and all the sub-sects Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, Hanbali, Ẓāhirī and Fivers, Seveners and Twelvers. Qarmatians, Ismailis, Fatimids, Assassins of Alamut and Druses and spit sects of Nizari Ismaili and Musta’li Ismaili and then Hafizi and Taiyabi Ismailis and then Ithna’asharis and the Akhbarism, Usulism, Shaykism, Alawites and Alevism and the Sufris, Azariqa, Najdat, Adjarites and Ibadis and movements like Quranist Muslims, Ahmadi Muslims and African American Muslims …. all of these “true believers” have differences over which they will slaughter one another

    and ……

    we are supposed to know the “true” meaning of “jihad” when any given Muslim proclaims it?

    You can’t have a reasoned discussion about Islam because, like progressives, they have mounted the goal posts on wheels and keep the rules of their game and schemes to themselves.

  5. @ Heliotrope: Regardless of any other problems with them, you have to admit that the organized systems of pastors-bishops-archbishops-Pope in Catholicism and pastor-patriarch-ecumenical patriarch in Eastern Orthodoxy, and the attendant institution of Magisterium, prevents a lot of that nonsense. Islam is more akin to, say, the various brands of Evangelical Christianity in the sense that you might have broad categories of what groups believe, and some groups may have loose organization, but no leadership structure that can sit down and say, “This is acceptable, this is not” and so cast out those who deviate from these standards of belief and practice.

    Yes, Catholicism and Orthodoxy have their rogue elements, but those two denominations have a very strong element of brand control. That is something Islam lacks. In a certain sense, the existence of a Caliphate might actually help to get Muslims on the same page. Except that process would involve far more decapitations than in the Vatican.

  6. Sandnazis and prognazis………same alliance. It’s good to see the libertarians finally waking up when not aiding and abetting the Left.

  7. Sean L,

    Three cheers for the Catholicism and Orthodoxy as you have described it. No argument from me.

    However, there are some really incredible differences between the hair color of heads in evangelical Christian gatherings and the “average” Catholic or Orthodox house of worship around the world.

    The evangelicals are eating the lunch of Catholics in Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Belize, and even Argentina. What will come of this, I do not know. But it appears that folks today are hungry for moral understanding and spiritual uplifting. They are far less captured by the mystique of the trappings and gaudiness of the ceremony than in the past.

    Perhaps, at some point, the evangelicals will form a union and build cathedrals and pump themselves up into a hierarchy of holier than thou superiors. If they do, I expect the people to start squirming during the sermons and looking for the exits.

    Not long ago I attended a Catholic wedding in a small town in Chile. The priest pronounced the moment of marriage and then he asked every married couple in attendance to come forward and bless the new marriage. It was a very simple act of grace, but it was overwhelming to all. It was an “evangelical” touch which was invigorating. I asked the priest afterwards if it was a common practice of his. He said it had just occurred to him and he did it. I hope he doesn’t get scolded from above. I can see an argument breaking out over just what such a blessing is intended to convey and blah, blah, blah. Church politics is always just behind every pew.

  8. @ Heliotrope: The Orthodox are largely ethnic in their make-up: if you’re Orthodox, it’s because your family is, and your family is Orthodox because your family is from an area that was either in Eastern Roman Empire or fell under its sphere of influence as opposed to the Western Roman Empire. There’s certainly an element of that in Catholicism, and there is history of communities moving back and forth between Catholicism and Orthodoxy.

    I have to disagree with you as to why Evangelicals are making headway in Latin America, which has traditionally been a Catholic stronghold. I don’t think it’s that people are tiring of the trappings of the churches, I think it’s that they sense that the churches have lost their fire. Living in the North East, it’s a common joke that bishops compete with mainline Protestants to see who can make services more boring and generic.

    In my anecdotal experience, it’s the Catholic parishes that most cling to the old ways- giving Latin Masses, or adapting the form of the old High Mass to English, or following the Eastern Catholic tradition- that are getting the greatest influx of young people among Catholic parishes. Young Catholics who are serious about their faith are genuinely hungry to learn about the liturgical heritage of the Church and find a more fervent and passionate Mass, and Latin Masses and Divine Liturgies satisfy that. Passion and awe are in the prayers of Sts. Benedict and John Chrysostom, not the lukewarm, insipid meanderings of some low-T Jesuit or crypto-hippy “sister.”

    Whatever my problems doctrinal, metaphysical, and Scriptural problems with Evangelical Christian groups, they definitely believe it with their whole heart and soul. So points for that. But I notice that Evangelicals seem to fall a lot harder then Catholics when they fall away from the faith- a lot of lapsed Catholics still keep certain customs, or at least refrain from out-and-out hatred, or swing back and forth between observance and disbelief, before settling in some middle-ground: not pious, but still practicing. Every virulent, “Christians are all morons and the churches need to be taxed” atheist I have met seems to have come from a denomination that believed in Young Earth Creationism, or didn’t have a strong background in science. Way harder to reject the concept of God after accepting the theory of natural selection, or that the earth is older than a few thousand years old, when your faith never said that there was a contradiction between the two to begin with.
