The one defining characteristic of the left is their refusal to recognize evil, much less fight it.
It views genuine threats to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — such as communism — as ignorant, xenophobic preoccupations, and lectures us that the true dangers lie elsewhere: in capitalism, colonialism, racism, gender discrimination… the usual suspects.
As Iran threatens hegemony over the Middle East’s oil fields under the protection of a nuclear umbrella, as the nation states created according to the Westphalian model fall like dominoes in the Muslim world and Islamist warlords and their paymasters in Tehran gain control over vast tracts of territory, America’s progressives (who are actually regressive) assure us that Islam has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. Which means that neither Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iran, nor the fifty-odd repressive hellholes that define themselves as Islamic states are actually Islamic.
Indeed, for leftists like Barack Obama, John Kerry, and most of the Democrat party, the greatest danger to mankind is (drum roll, please): global warming, global freezing or climate change… whatever they are calling the weather this week.
Way back in 2014, our betters at The New York Times predicted, with head-spinning graphs and statistics, that we were witness to the End of Snow. It was positively biblical. Apocalypse Snow.
Okay, so New York and much of the eastern seaboard are blanketed by the white stuff. But fear not. It’s not really what it seems.
The white stuff is really proof of global warming.
And so on.
Seraphic Secret has long maintained that the left’s cognitive dissonance is a mirror of the psychic madness that has become the norm of the Arab Muslim world.
Witness: It is common coin in the Arab Muslim world to believe that the Mossad was behind events such as 9-11 and the Charlie Hebdo massacre. You see, Jews are shape-shifters, and so evil that they kill their own in order to blame the poor Arab Muslims.
Such pathological thinking is not so far from the climate-change hysteria that claims to see hidden patterns that defy common sense.
This is how the left has become an enabler of Islamic terror. The left looks at the Arab Muslim world, ingests its rhetoric, and uses it for its own purposes. This is how Barack Obama can tell the American people, with a straight face, that his administration has “halted the Iranian nuclear program” — a complete lie.
It is also why Obama can explain that he’s not seeing Bibi Netanyahu, because:
“…as a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections so as to avoid the appearance of influencing a democratic election in a foreign country.”
But actually influencing the election in a foreign country is just fine.
News flash: Obama has just dispatched Jeremy Bird, his political field director, to Israel to work for Bibi’s defeat in the upcoming elections.
