Liberals Can Remain Liberals and Still Recognize Islam as a Threat


The majority of the people in the counterislamization movement are conservatives and some of them feel that a liberal is incapable of understanding why Islamic expansion is dangerous, or that a liberal needs to become a conservative to "get it." This is not true. And my assertion is not based on wishful thinking. We have lots of strong evidence. For example:

A Pew Research Center survey found that 82% of American Republicans are “very concerned” about the rise of Islamic extremism in the world, compared with 60% of political independents and 51% of Democrats. Similarly, two-thirds of Republicans (67%) say that Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence among its believers, compared with 47% of independents and 42% of Democrats.

The growing movement in Germany: Half the people who identify as left-wing Social Democrats agree with the aims of the German demonstrators (who want to curb Muslim immigration, among other goals).

Is Resisting Islamic Expansion Only For Conservatives? Robert Spencer explains that it is foolish to think so.

One of the most active participants in the counterislamization movement is a liberal Canadian philosophy professor, Elsa Schieder, PhD. Read what she wrote about Islamic headscarves. And read her personal journey toward understanding the threat of Islam.

A European liberal explains why she is so adamantly against Islamic expansion: United We Stand

Even Charlie Hebdo's editors, who paid for their lives for criticizing Islam, were liberal. Quoting from Mashable: "French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo lampooned everything and everybody — and especially those who didn't want to be lampooned. The weekly magazine, for years a fixture of the liberal left in France, mocked politicians, business tycoons, military leaders, political conservatives and religious figures. Its cartoon covers often shocked and offended, usually, it seemed, on purpose."

And of course, Bill Maher is an outspoken critic of Islam and a proud liberal.

The evidence goes on and on...

I'm Running Out of Ways to Defend Islam, an article by Allen Clifton, co-founder of Forward Progressives, and author of the popular Right Off A Cliff column. He is also the founder of the Right Off A Cliff facebook page, on which he routinely voices his opinions and stirs the pot for the Progressive movement. Clifton has a degree in Political Science.

We should go out of our way to avoid alienating liberals. We want them on our side. A liberal-conservative divide doesn't help our cause. It does help the people motivated by Islamic doctrine, however.

This is Influence 101: You impede your ability to persuade people when you call them evil or idiots. One thing to think about: A liberal has a better chance of convincing and persuading another liberal than a conservative does. And the mainstream media is dominated by liberals. So the more liberals we have on our side promoting this cause, the better off we will be, and the faster we will reach a critical mass of people who understand the true nature of Islam.

Just as liberals can and did remain liberals during the Cold War, pace Arthur Schlesinger, Eleanor Roosevelt One of the worst strategic errors made by the West was rather than consolidate ALL democratic anti-Soviet/Communist forces(be they on the Left or Right), they insisted onm adopted a "purist" policy of enlisting only the Right(pace Joe McCarthy).

Article Spotlight

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
