Jihad and the Progressive Left

by Sam Huntington

Writer Andrew McCarthy argues that Americans remain willfully blind to the realities of jihad, and I think this is true. It was true in 1993, and it is no less so today in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing/massacre. No group better illustrates this willful blindness than the communist left, beginning with "America deserved it."  This was the view of Senator Barack Obama and his minister, Rev. Wright. It is the view of Louis Farrakhan and his thugs. And it is the party line at MSNBC.



Sadly, our troll Ducky belongs to this group; he only disagrees with the notion once the proposition is changed to Boston deserved it. The fact is, no one deserved these assaults upon the innocents: not anyone on 9/11, and certainly not an 8-year old little boy who only wanted to watch his father finish a marathon. I believe this to be a true statement even in spite of the willful blindness that collectively led the citizens of Boston to this unhappy conclusion.

Worse than the notion that the innocents deserved what happened to them on 15 April is the filth that emerged from the progressive commentariat in the breaking moments of the attack. It was said that they hoped that a white person did this horrid deed. It truly is hard to imagine, isn’t it? (Note 1)

Progressives were almost granted their wish: Chechens are white. Sadly from the leftist perspective, however, there weren’t any culprits carrying Tea Party banners and there was no indication of yet another Timothy McVeigh. Quite the contrary: the Tsarnaev boys were avid supporters of Mr. Obama, who sent out a “thank you tweet” for their support during the last election.

Well, no matter. Chechen #1 is dead and Eric Holder is looking for ways to determine that Chechen #2 is unable to get a fair trial anywhere in the United States. I predict he'll be deported to Chechnya, where he'll live out his days as a national hero.

Let us take the steps to finally dispense with this notion that Islamic terror is driven by ideology. It is not. Not even when aided and abetted by the progressive movements, who want nothing more than to see our Republic fail. No, what drives Islamic Jihad is unmitigated brutality —the kind of brutality that leads them to attack the unarmed innocent, rather than the well-armed warrior.

People who acquiesce to the insanity of Islamic Supremacy appear to have greater empathy for Islam's worldview than for the hopes and dreams of their own people. Since I'm a free-will sort of person, I’m okay with this. I simply think that such people should stop calling themselves Americans, and maybe even consider moving to the Land of Oz where they can live the balance of their lives under Shari' a Law.

  1. How about the innocents of April 17 at Waco Texas? The progressives blame anyone who gets in their way of their program. Sooner or later the wheel will spin to those of the ""vast right wing conspirators". Jihadists will be perceived on both sides of the spectrum.

  3. SH: "Let us take the steps to finally dispense with this notion that Islamic terror is driven by ideology. It is not. Not even when aided and abetted by the progressive movements, who want nothing more than to see our Republic fail."

    Pure slander. You have nothing in this opinion to back that statement up.

    "Progressives want to see our Republic fail" is the same sort of statement as "Conservatives are racists and hate all people of color."

    If you're looking for a reasonable discussion on this topic, then make reasonable statements.

  4. NOTHING to back it up?

    A declared WAR on capitalism ISN'T "something" to back it up?

    Who knew?

  5. America IS the "capitalist system". Our "freedoms" REQUIRE a "free market"... else NONE of us have the Liberty to make our OWN choices with what to do with our lives.... AND our OWN PERSONAL RESOURCES.

  6. The fight TODAY with the Left is, "just how much money are we going to allow them to steal from us so as to undermine and circumvent the Free Market system?"

    Moral Hazard, thy name is GOVERNMENT!

  7. Weak retort, Shaw. I didn’t expect any honesty, but I thought you could produce something better than this …

  8. If Shaw thinks the statement is unfair, she should take a careful look around here. The progressive movement is attempting to do for the USA what it did for Massachusetts: transform it into a crap hole. I vote NO on that. By the way, Shaw … how’s Pocahontas Warren working out for you so far? No, she’s no Ted Kennedy, but give her time.

  9. In 2009, the Left STOLE 1/5th of the American economy and set it aside as a toy for Progressives to Play with.

    They already controlled 1/4 of the nation's GDP.

    How much government intervention would satisfy the Left?

    Answer - They won't be happy until its' 100%.

    Comrade Stalin von Kenawe will NOT be appeased.

  10. So there are these people who fervently believe that America is broken and only they can do anything about it. The only solution from their point of view is that the rest of us must give them what they want: more government in every single aspect of our lives. Only the government must possess firearms; only government can discipline our children; only government can spend our money wisely; only government can assure everyone a level playing field … except, of course, these are all BS Marxist lies.

    The government will do none of these things. What the government will do, under the communist agenda, is strip away every American’s liberty, calling it progress. Look around and see what the progressive left has already done. American is already a disaster on the precipice of epic fail. Naturally, anyone who disagrees with the progressive left must be a racist, a homophobe, or an Islamaphobe. The big picture couldn’t be any clearer from that reality alone.

  11. If Sam were looking for a reasonable discussion, honest dialogue on this or any other topic, he would never direct his remarks to a leftist. There is no honesty on the left. Let me clarify that: there is no honesty on the left. As but one example, I recently read that the Governor of Massachusetts sealed all records relating to the Tsarnaev brothers. Following that, the university sealed all their records, too. How do these two decisions further justice, security, or the people’s right to know what is going on? Typical of a Marxist government is treating the people as if they were mushrooms: keep them in the dark and feed them shit.

  12. Howling at the moon again, eh Sammy.

    You claim that the left feels those killed and maimed deserved what happened to them? Are you freaking insane or just blinded by your religious insanity?

    I expect your looking forward to the days when we put all Muslims on the cattle cars and ship them to camps. I can't imagine what else you and the others are getting at here.

    Then we have Bunkerville (apt name) still whining about the psychotic Waco evangelical child raper (your kind of guy, Bunkerville) who immolated his cult.

    Robert Sinclair jumps in. Let me point out that you are full of crap, Bob. The records of welfare payments have not been made public because that does violate Massachusetts law.

    Marxist government? You folks are so far in the freaking weeds that you risk loosing all touch with reason.

  13. Well, it’s good to know that some things never change; Nostradumbas remains as confused and as incoherent as ever.

    I don't respond to people whose only intellectual abilities are taunts and jeers.

    lol! Those are the only kind of arguments that you know how to MAKE, pShaw! Your blog is living proof of THAT. :)

  17. Strange, isn’t it? We are governed by leftists given to finger wagging about their commitment to due process and the rule of law — they’re not like those bad old warmongering Bushies. Still, here we are in the post-arrest phase of the civilian prosecution the administration was hell-bent on commencing — the phase when due process obliges government officials to remain mum about non-public investigative information that could taint the jury pool and undermine the defendant’s right to a fair trial — and we’re being inundated with stunning confession evidence.

    Remember, this is the same crowd that labels the Fort Hood massacre “workplace violence” and won’t honor its victims with Purple Heart medals. To do so, they sniff, might prejudice the objectivity of the trial of a jihadist mass murderer who has publicly announced he’d like to plead guilty. Now, though, in Tsarnaev’s case, government agencies are leaking like sieves.

    Why?

    Because you are being softened up. Steered by its Gitmo Bar veterans and Lawyer Left compass, the Obama administration is executing a massive national-security fraud: the farce that the jihad against America can be judicialized, that civilian-court processes are a better answer to enemy warfare than are combat protocols.

  19. I have said this so many times on my blog and other places.

    Islam is not a religion of peace and they welcome chaos and and delight in the horrendous suffering of others.

    What happened at the Boston Marathon was just another prime example that we have enemies, terrible and evil enemies living in America.

    They have one goal. Destroy our freedom and kill as many innocent people as they can. They feel justified because of what they are taught through the Qur'an.

  20. Islam is dangerous to society, and so is anyone who enables it. Religious freedom? Yes … religious tyranny,, no.
