For the Left, ‘Islamophobia’ Is a Much Bigger Threat Than Jihad Terror

Acid attack survivors.

Recently I spoke at Stanford University, but few people were in attendance. This was not because my appearance had aroused little interest, but because Stanford administrators and Leftist students made sure that as few people as possible heard me.

Why did they do this? Because for the academic Left and the Left in general, “Islamophobia” is a much bigger threat than jihad terror.

    The reason is the left does not think groups like Isis is real.

    It is Very strange—-
    The reasons that Muslims give for fearing we Islamophobes—
    PALES —-when compared to Why we Islamophobes-
    Fear ISLAM.
    Does a nasty e-mail–compare–to a slit throat ?
    Does a broken Mosque window—compare– to vehicular Homicide?
    Does pulling a Niqab of your head–compare– to severing a Head?
    Does publishing a silly Cartoon –compare to — wanton Murder and Mayhem?
    Does not agreeing with your Religion–compare– to a Death Fatwa?
    —-anyway—you get the point.

  • Thinking From First Principles

    The core problem is one of “belief” on the part of the left. In general, they are unable to accept that any person could or should take their religion seriously. But more importantly, the are unable to accept the fact that Islam teaches hatred, violence, bigotry, misogyny, and pedophilia as positive moral behaviors through the example of it’s apostle. We need to up our game in countering that difficulty in how we describe what we see. We should always state that “(Person X) (committed whatever act) in putting into practice the Islamic teaching (to do whatever act) found in (authoritative Islamic source).” Always always always hammer the point that the person was just putting into practice a specific, documented Islamic teaching!

    There is a Problem here.
    I was never a great church goer so I am part of the problem.
    My kids have absolutely no Faith .
    They are curious. I can see them starting to question –
    “What is ‘Life’ ALL about” ?
    and all they hear about is ISLAM.
    This is really fucking SCARY.
    From the time the kids start school a 4 years of age until they finish University they have pretty much been indoctrinated by the Left.

    I just DO NOT UNDERSTAND why ISLAM is being put on a Pedestal by our Gov’t.

      Islam is authoritarian and about control being – absolute societal control – being centered on a small group of empowered people (government, imans – islam makes no distinction between political and religious spheres of influence). Marxists and post-modernists share many of the same views as islam, and so support it, seeing it as a useful tool for the weakening and eventual destruction of Western society, culture and values.
