In May 2017 Ayaan Hirsi Ali appeared on The Rubin Report to discuss the challenge of Dawah (the preaching or proselytizing of Islam), the left’s alliance with Islamists, intersectionality, the indoctrination occurring on college campuses, and more.
Back in 2013 The Independent published an article, Why is the left so blinkered to Islamic extremism?, which discusses the One Law For All — No Sharia Law Campaign report Siding With the Oppressor: The Pro-Islamist Left, and the then more novel troubling findings — arguably it is a reality that has become all too clear with the passage of a few years time — regarding the left’s love of and adherence to the identity politics pitting of one “victim” group against the rest of society and indeed, more and more, against each other when conflict arises: Whose human rights should take precedent … this group based on religion, or this group based on gender (both as most sane people know the term and in its modern bastardized meaning relating to gender theory), or this group based on a different religion, or this group based on (insert pretty much any “identity” here).
I would argue that — and this is extremely simplified and brief — the political (and cultural) left, as a group and individually, are so overwhelmingly keen to be seen to be, and support, “diversity” and “equality” and “multiculturalism,” and to virtue signal about same, that they will, in effect, hold the door open for their executioner. The reasons why are, fundamentally, not very complicated … but I’ll leave that for another day.
