The Basics of Islam: Robert Spencer on “Islamophobia”

  • Robert Spencer is always so informative. The sad thing about misuse of the label “Islamophobia” is it was initiated by the Western Left, whereby Islamists proceeded to use it as a weapon against free speech in the West.

    Muslims never even thought in terms of “phobias” and the misuse of the sophisticated language of psychiatry / psychology until they were politically schooled in this method by the Western Left, who had already successfully used it to repress their own opponents in the area of free speech (e.g. homophobia, xenophobia, etc.). It’s a tried and true method of intimidation and repression, and the political Left in the West is responsible for this abuse. Speaking out against Islamo-fascism is not in fact the product of a diseased mind.
