Ann Coulter quote # 40:
Here the country had finally given liberals a war against fundamentalism and they don’t want to fight it. They would have, except it would put them on the same side as the United States.
Islam is a target-rich cesspool of things that liberals claim to despise. Batshit religious fervor, 'divine' commands to murder, incessant warfare, misogamy, female genital mutilation, public executions, homicidal homophobia, no access to pornography, etc.
To a lib, Islam should be like Fred Phelps on crack .
In the days following 9-11, I believed that the terrorist attacks would finally put an end to liberal delusions about Islam. We could unite to fight this scourge.
But while some libs (and to their credit, some New Atheists) came over to reason and stood up to Islamic totalitarianism, many if not most liberals soon slid back into their accommodationist crouch. Political correctness and denunciation of 'Islamaphobia' for any salient criticism of Islamism soon became the norm in lefty circles.
Coulter is right about the paradox. Liberals who castigate our society for providing insufficient opportunities for women in highest levels of the corporate world are reticent to excoriate a culture that beats women who drive. Liberals who denounce Christians for opposition to gay marriage go mute when Islamic totalitarians hang gay teenagers.
I disagree with Coulter on one point. She asserts that liberals' motive for accommodation of Islamism is lack of patriotism. Although liberals suffer no surfeit of patriotism, I believe that liberals' motive for Islamist coddling is raw hatred of Christianity.
Many on the left will side with anyone and anything that is an enemy of Christianity. It is, I believe, the Left's deepest hatred, and it's primal motivation.
