Why the Left Protects Islam

Richard Dawkins is no friend to conservatives. The atheist author has spent much of his life deriding Judaism and Christianity. He once stated, “An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf.” Dawkins says that even moderate religious people “make the world safe for extremists.” He’s far to the left on politics: He’s pro-abortion rights, and a supporter of the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats in Britain.

But he’s also smart enough to recognize that radical Islam is a greater threat to human life than Christianity or Judaism. He explains: “I have criticised the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have criticised the murdering of apostates for no crime other than their disbelief. … Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism.”

Such language makes him a pariah among leftists.

    Leftism will destroy Westen culture as surely as islam will. Screw him.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just make up a name for Islam and all the key nouns and phrases in Islam and use them.

  • Observer

    Because they don’t want their heads chopped off, while applauding that done to conservatives?

  • simus1

    The leftists find primitive violent muslim fanatics interesting and at the same time are concerned with the earth’s excessive overpopulation trend of peaceful religious folks who don’t really find the left’s message very appealing.

  • Leftists protect anyone and anything that embrace their world-view or hatred of their dads.
