I always figured that the thing that drew the Progressive Left and Islamic Supremacists together was their mutual hatred of Christianity and their desire for authoritarian political power to impose their morality. But someone has pondered how both Progressives and Islamic Supremacists hate Valentine’s Day and come up with an interesting hypothesis.
The core issue at the foundation of this phenomenon is that Islam and the Left both revile the notion of private love, a non-tangible and divine entity that draws individuals to each other and, therefore, distracts them from submitting themselves to a secular deity.
The highest objective of both Islam and the Left is clear: to shatter the sacred intimacy that a man and a woman can share with one another, for such a bond is inaccessible to the order. History, therefore, demonstrates how Islam, like Communism, wages a ferocious war on any kind of private and unregulated love. In the case of Islam, the reality is epitomized in its monstrous structures of gender apartheid and the terror that keeps it in place. As we are well aware, female sexuality and freedom are demonized and, therefore, forced veiling, forced marriage, female genital mutilation, honor killings and other misogynist monstrosities become mandatory parts of the sadistic paradigm.
When you think about it, a hatred and distrust of intimate personal connections is something the Progressive Left and the Islamic Supremacists share. The Right reveres and celebrates the traditional family as the epitome of love. The left reviles it as an instrument of patriarchal oppression. In contrast, the Left celebrates the Slut Walk, the bath house, the abortion mill — all symbols of sexuality divorced from intimacy.
The aversion to intimate connections between individuals is rooted emotionally, perhaps, in resentment. The people most feverishly committed to extremist authoritarian ideologies are often those who seem incapable of forming intimate connections. It is easier to dismiss love as a frivolous distraction from the important work of building social justice or the Caliphate.
Valentine’s Day is a “shameful day” for the Muslim world and for the Left. It is shameful because private love is considered obscene, since it threatens the highest of values: the need for a totalitarian order to attract the complete and undivided attention, allegiance and veneration of every citizen. Love serves as the most lethal threat to the tyrants seeking to build Sharia and a classless utopia on earth, and so these tyrants yearn for the annihilation of every ingredient in man that smacks of anything that it means to be human.
“Love is love” was never anything more than an advertising slogan to sell a social-left agenda. It’s very banality indicates how little regard the Left ever had for love.
