You’d think that Islamist extremists and leftist radicals would have nothing in common. But noted human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali has good reason to believe this is no longer the case. She explains in this eye-opening video.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
And if your son asks you in the future, saying, What are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, that the L-RD our G-d commanded you? You will say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt; and the L-RD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. The L-RD gave signs and wonders, great and harmful, against Egypt, against Pharaoh, and against all his household, before our eyes: And he brought us out of there to bring us in, to give us the land that he promised our fathers.
Tomorrow night the holiday of Passover begins.
Jews all over the world remember and reenact our bondage in Egypt. We celebrate G-d’s gift of freedom to the Jewish people. Tragically, too many Jews have inverted the meaning and practice of freedom. As George Orwell explained, the left believes that slavery is freedom, slavery to government and slavery to an evil ideology.
With the persecution of Brendan Eich of Mozilla for the thought-crime of supporting heterosexual marriage, to Brandeis University’s suppression of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s critique of totalitarian Islam, we are now, demonstrably, in the age of liberal fascism.
Here, the intolerant is not just tolerated but celebrated. In this world, the two-minutes of hate for the Jew Goldstein that was the daily bread of Orwell’s 1984, has been refined into a 24 hour cycle of hysterical news and social media where illiberal notions masquerade as freedom. This is an ideological zone where genuine advocates for women’s rights—Hirsi Ali and Phyllis Chesler to name but two—are demonized as Islamophobes, even as scar tissue hardens on the mutilated genitals of Muslim women. It is a world where those who are born Jewish worship at the alter of Ishtar, the postmodern democrat party.
The road from Somalia to Brandeis is an Islamist Cul-de-sac.
This letter is wrenchingly on-target. In it, she decries the suicidal political correctness that animates the self-righteous Democrats who also happen to have been born Jewish.
No better example of this PC insanity can be found but at Brandeis University, an allegedly Jewish school—Yeshiva University is Jewish, Ner Yisroel is Jewish, Brandeis is a Democrat plantation—who have withdrawn an honorary degree offered to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, because she says uncomfortable truths about Islam. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a brilliant and articulate woman who was genitally mutilated by Muslims, who was persecuted by Muslims, and who lives under a permanent death threat by Muslims. Hirsi, the courageous author of Infidel, was born and raised in an Islamic culture, and thus, presumably, knows something something about Islam.
But the spoiled Jewish brats at Brandeis know more about Islam than Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
They are also a bunch of progressive fascists.
Brandeis is not the problem. Brandeis is a symptom of everything that is wrong with an intellectually and spiritually bankrupt Jewish-American progressive movement.
