Jamie Glazov connects the dots between the totalitarian massacres of the
20th century, murder in the name of Islam and the mutual attraction
between the radical left and radical islamists.
Both the radical and the reactionary hate the present.
celebrities venerated monsters like Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, & Ho
The New Left of the 1960s didn't have a change of heart, just
a change of icons from Stalin to third world tyrants.
The homicidal and
sadistic Che Guevara is still held up as a hero.
After the communist victory and resultant slaughter in Vietnam, few of
Hanoi's western supporters expressed shock or regret. These true
believers do not care about the victims who are merely eggs to be broken
in order to create the perfect utopian omelet.
The last communist hope
in Nicaragua was shattered by Ronald Reagan. After that, the collapse of
the Soviet Empire left the Left aimless.
The ideological offspring of
the 'progressives' that were hoping the West would lose the Cold War
became the nihilist leftovers of today.
Hatred of the United States is one great attractor. Jihadists share a
desire for cathartic violence with radical leftists; that's why the
latter could not conceal their glee in the wake of 9/11.
In the 1930s the Mufti of Jerusalem,
Haj al-Amin al-Husseini, became a supporter of Hitler, eventually
settling in Berlin where he encouraged the annihilation of European
Jews, hoping to become the leader of the Arab world in expectation of
an Axis victory.
The Mufti promoted Nazism amongst the Arabs, blending National Socialism
with fundamentalist Islam. After the war he fled to Cairo where he
accommodated fleeing Nazis and planned the destruction of Israel.
Al-Husseini did not only target Jews but also moderate Arabs and the
democratic West in general. Nazism was the spiritual and physical bridge
bringing ideological extremism to the Arab world. When the Soviet Union
became the champion of the Arab cause, hatred of Israel started
migrating to the Left. Arab leaders like Gamal Abdel Nasser, Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat were all influenced by the Mufti's ideas.
The Lefts latest idol is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his proxies Hamas and Hezbollah.
I have often wondered with both genuine puzzlement and rage, why the
radical Left seems to have vigorously supported every murderous tyranny
on the face of the earth, providing it is anti-Western.
It has always been galling and sickening how left wing radicals have
had no humanity towards anyone who was a victim of the totalitarian
regimes or bloodthirsty terrorist movements that they have supported
over the last century.
The shameful death cult odyssey that has lead left wing radicals of
the intellectual elite, academics, lawyers, writers, entertainers and
others to always identify with the most evil and monstrous regimes and
leaders on this planet and to pretend to turn a blind eye to the death
and destruction they have sowed (while in reality enjoying it).
