A Liberal Conundrum
A Liberal Conundrum
Weekly Update from Dinesh D'Souza
In the wake of terror in Paris, we find that Europe is now home to both radical secularism and radical Islam, a toxic combination. This clash of cultures presents a real problem for modern progressives. If a Muslim barber refuses on religious grounds to cut the hair of a lesbian, whose side does a liberal take?
This problem stems from a double standard. Muslims, even radical Muslims that trample on the rights of women and threaten violence against civilization, are a protected class by Western progressives, whereas even nominal Christians have become the object of progressive disdain.
If progressives were to be consistent, they would need to reject Islam as fervently as they reject Christianity, something very few progressives seem to be willing to acknowledge. Bill Maher is a notable exception. In my last appearance on his show, he expressed outrage that liberals are inconsistent in their condemnation of Islam.
The irony of the whole situation, though, is that the liberal, while he can, kowtows to the radical Muslim, but the radical Muslim, if he could, would behead the liberal!
New articles this week indicate that Holder and Obama's justice department may seek an indictment for General Petraeus. I'll let you decide who is the patriot and who is the scoundrel.
Petraeus' real crime was to lead a troop surge in Iraq that worked, frustrating Obama's plans for U.S. withdrawal and defeat. It appears as though Patraeus and the Navy SEAL who shot bin Laden have now joined me on Obama's target list!
On a lighter note, I want to take this opportunity to wish my daughter Danielle the very best—she turned 20 yesterday! How quickly they grow older (and how fortunate that we don't)! Happy Birthday, Danielle!
