I hear this sort of thing from time to time but I'm at a loss to know what to make of it because I'm out of touch with the scene in UK/Europe and North America. Who are the targets of this spoof? Who are some of the public figures or organisations of "the left" who express the view being mocked here? Links, sources, would be appreciated.bskeptic wrote:Something I came across regarding the left and Islamic terror...
"It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.
It's like a bad Monty Python sketch:
"We did this because our holy texts exhort us to do it."
"No you didn't."
"Wait, what? Yes we did..."
"No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons." . . .
