The name game must end

Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy’s ideology as: “Islamic Fundamentalism,” “Islamic Extremism,” “Islamic Totalitarianism,” “Islamofascism,” “Political Islam,” “Militant Islam,” “Islamonazism,” “Radical Islam,” “Islamism,” etc….

The enemy calls it “Islam.”

Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as “Radical Nazism,” “Extremist Shinto” and “Militant Communism.” The implication would have been that there were good versions of those ideologies, which would have lead some to seek out “moderate” Nazis, “moderate” Communists, etc., in order to prove that it wasn’t the ideologies that were the problem, but just those who “perverted” them.

    A most excellent article, one that should be spread far and wide. Islam is evil, and anyone who adheres to it should be rounded up and removed from Canada.

    The Toronto Star (& Crescent) prefers “Inspired by Daesh”.

      The Toronto Douche is a fifth column propaganda rag

        And a bloody poorly written one at that.

    Sadly it is even worse, since almost all politicians would rather eat shit than admit these acts have anything to do with Islam or “Islamism” of whatever kind.

      … and they will end up eating shit too, maybe even literally, depending on the roll out of events and on who has been properly disarmed on Parliament Hill.
