Ben Shapiro on why the left protects Islam

From Ben Shapiro at Townhall:

Why does the left seek to support radical Islam so ardently? Because the left believes that the quickest way to destroy Western civilization is no longer class warfare but multicultural warfare: Simply ally with groups that hate the prevailing system and work with them to take it down. Then, the left will build on the ashes of the old system. In this view, Dawkins is an opponent — how can the left recruit Muslims to fight the system if Dawkins is busy alienating them? They support the Palestinian terror regime — how can that colonialist outpost, Israel, be defeated without a little blood? They applaud Sarsour — she’s an ally, so she must be backed.

Alliance with nefarious forces calls your own morality into question. KPFA has a lot more to answer for than Dawkins. But the left will never have to answer such questions so long as it focuses in on its common enemy: a supposedly conservative establishment that must be fought with any tool at its disposal.More.

Reality check: As good an answer as any I have heard recently.

    Shapiro is still a bit hung up on Trump, but he is a smart dude.

    Steve Sailor sketches out the ultimate vision of the “elite” as being a world where there is an upper class (them) and a lower class, and nothing in between. The reason they want this is that a strong middle class produces the entrepreneurs that challenge their position (“new money”). In a free market society there is a great deal of churn and many of the elite rich end up being kicked to the bottom. They don’t want that. It’s stressful having to worry about upstarts and the possibility of losing their status.

    This whole scene was of course seen by no less a socialist than H. G. Wells in his story of an elite (Eloi) and worker (Morlocks) although that particular scenario didn’t end well for the elites.

    From linked Shapiro article: “Because the left believes that the quickest way to destroy Western civilization is no longer class warfare but multicultural warfare: Simply ally with groups that hate the prevailing system and work with them to take it down.”

    Yup, that pretty much sums it up.

    When muslims say they are the main victims if islamic terrorism it get accepted as the truth…. but if a non-muslim even hints that jihad terrorism is linked to islam they are a racist and it’s a hate-crime.
