Liberals defend Islam because...

It makes no sense. Islam is homophobic, misogynistic, and intolerant. But liberals defend it anyway, all the while trashing Christianity and Judaism for their much less extreme views - and *far* less extreme actions - on those subjects. Why?

Is it a vast left-wing conspiracy? Or just stupid liberals who will get wiped out by their fair-weather allies later?

It's an irony for sure. I think the mindset is that we can't stop terrorism by attacking Islam because it just creates more terrorists.

But yeah, the liberal fascination with Islam is almost as weird as the GOP fascination with Saudi Arabia.

Compartmentalization?

Compartmentalization?

We're allied with the Saudis for military reasons, not because we like anything else about them. It was the cold war counterweight to Iraq & Syria - the Baath party allied with the Soviets.

But what explains the liberals overlooking Islam's intolerantly militant ideology? Is it strictly because conservatives are on the other side? The enemy of your enemy isn't always your friend... sometimes it's just another enemy biding its time.

It could be because we don't

It could be because we don't live in caves and have many Moslem friends who hate and fear the extremists as much as the next person. They also are kind, generous, fun-loving, curious and open-minded. Their faith in God is also a lot stronger than that of you posers.

Sort of made in Jasper's image. Sharia is a real hoot, isn't it?

The ultimate purpose of liberalism, whether its adherents are aware of it or not, is to destroy the Judeo-Christian "patriarchy".

Once you understand it from that lens, it all makes perfect sense.

Conservative paranoia reigns supreme.

I also used to be a liberal

I also used to be a liberal before I saw the error of my ways.

It's not a question of not understanding liberals - it is an issue of understanding them too well.
