Yesterday, I had long social media conversations with two Somali Muslim gentlemen from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I asked them about their goals for improving Minnesota and how they feel about being an American. I also asked them about the million dollar upgrade at Cedar Riverside public housing that Mayor Jacob Frey promised its majority Somali residents this week. After I was called a racist, a fascist, a bigot, stupid and old, here’s what else they shared with me. Nearly verbatim. Thoughts?
It was only after CBS News first identified Alek Minassian as the suspect that we learned who had struck horror on our lovely city.
This was just one of the issues that caused vigorous debate on social media in Canada. How was it that CBS News was able to identify the name and past record of Alek Minassian, but CBC News could not?
Is it possible journalists north of the border have become so terrified of being called racist or right-wing that they would rather compromise their professional standards than face harassment by left-wing trolls? Trolls who it seemed were in mass communal prayers hoping the killer would turn out to be a White Male Christian.
B’nai Brith’s annual report on anti-Semitism in Canada, released Tuesday, touched upon what has been, in my view, the major transformation of Jew hatred in Canada since the Second World War.
That is that today, the threat comes as much — if not more — from the extreme left, aided and abetted by so-called progressive politicians who pander to Jew-haters in their opportunistic search for votes, as from the extreme right, where so-called conservative politicians historically pandered to neo-Nazis and white supremacists for the same reason.
The #MeToo movement has revealed the hypocrisy of prominent individuals in Hollywood who claim to support women’s rights, while at the same time serially violating them. Yet, an even more sinister hypocrisy in Hollywood still lies beneath the surface – under-reported, often unnoticed and sometimes blatantly denied. That is the alliance of Hollywood Lefists with Islamist organizations that present themselves as champions of multiculturalism and inclusion, but in reality oppose everything that the Left claims to hold dear.
Of the many explosive public debates that have raged in the post 9/11 West, perhaps none have been more controversial than the one over the cause of Islamic extremism. Though it would be inaccurate to simplify this debate as being separated into two clear “sides”, a broad distinction can roughly be made as follows. On one “side”, progressives like The Guardian columnist Joumanah El Matra claim that, “Muslim terrorism was never and […] still is not about furthering Islam.” Instead, they argue, Islamic extremism is the result of geopolitical grievances against the West and its allies, particularly their foreign policies. While there is no necessary connection between being a progressive (which I will take to mean being left of centre politically), there is an obvious overlap between those who might identify as progressive and those who hold the view of Islamic extremism outlined above.
On the other side of this debate are New Atheists like Sam Harris who argue very forcefully that Islamic doctrine is directly responsible for Muslim terrorism. A telling quote by Harris: “we are at war with Islam. This is not to say that we are at war with all Muslims, but we are absolutely at war with the vision of life that is prescribed to all Muslims in the Koran.”
Note the author speaks only of progressives and atheists, all of which he considers part of the broader left. Are there no “right wing” atheists or does he just wish they would just go away.
The following Vice News article hints at what is going on, the left appears concerned they can no longer claim the atheist sphere entirely as their own.
Too Many Atheists Are Veering Dangerously Toward the Alt-Right
The sleepy town of Telford, England, is home to the latest bout of grooming gangs and child sexual exploitation. On March 11, the Mirror revealed the results of an eighteen-month investigation into the rape and sexual trafficking of up to 1,000 girls, some as young as 11, with offenses dating back to the early 1980s. It is said to be the UK’s worst and most prolific case of child sexual abuse. Since the release of the investigation by the Mirror, more Telford victims have found the courage to come forward.
The Muslims (and Muslim Brotherhood) are going hyper political, a sign of preparation for the upper house. (This negates the argument that Shariah is just a personal faith and not to be imposed on non-Muslims). They are also using interfaith dialogue and interfaith churches as political cover for their infiltration.
What is the difference between a jihadi and a social justice warrior? Not much.
The jihadi is an unapologetic soldier in Islam’s religious war against America seeking to reestablish the Muslim caliphate by internationalizing the world under one-world government ruled by sharia law.
The social justice warrior is an unapologetic soldier in the leftist secular Culture War against America seeking to destroy America from within and internationalize her under one-world government ruled by the globalist elite.
Progressives should resist certain voices in their community if they care about being perceived as enemies of racism, sexism and xenophobia. For example, it would behoove the progressive left to stop listening to Linda Sarsour. Sarsour is one of the biggest figures in feminist activism, and she embodies many of the criticisms typically made of progressives. She is so easy to criticize that she has become the darling of right-wing news outlets like Breitbart and The Daily Wire. It is a sad state of affairs when one of the four co-chairs of the 2017 Women’s March has to wonder why she is treated like an “existential threat” to the Jewish community.
It cannot be repeated enough that the Marxist-anarchist radical left Antifa and Islamic jihadists have joined forces to destroy Western civilization. Known as the Red-Green Axis, this unlikely alliance of leftists with Islamic groups is actually a means to an end by Islamists.
Inexplicably, left-wing forces do not comprehend that they are merely one of the tools by which Islamists wish to impose a global caliphate. In his searing documentary Killing Europe, producer Michael Hansen makes the following cogent points.
The Islamic jihadists have found willing partners in the left for a number of reasons.
