Look out all you conservatives protesting the Ground Zero Mosque, the â€œprofessional leftâ€� says youâ€™re a bunch of racist Islamophobes who must be stopped or the mosque will never be built!Â Leftists are on a mission: stop knuckle-dragging tea partiers and the ever-hated GOP from standing in their wayÂ and riling up Americans to fight the Cordoba Initiative’s plans. They regard Ground Zero mosqueÂ protests as unhinged GOP racism toward Muslims.
Those of us in the â€˜professional leftâ€™ often lament the timidity and fickleness of our more establishment colleagues. Â If only they had been more resolute in their self-proclaimed roles as arbiters of truth and reasonâ€¦The list of establishment voices who have spoken outâ€¦against the plainly bigoted crusade against Park51, a k a the Cordoba House, should be daunting. Â It includesâ€¦the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Timesâ€¦the Wall Street Journalâ€¦CNN’s Fareed Zakaria (who returned an award from the ADL in protest), NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Post columnist Kathleen Parker, the American Jewish Committee, J-Street and Iraq war boosters Christopher Hitchens and Peter Beinart, whose recent Daily Beast columns put him somewhere just slightly to the right of Noam Chomskyâ€¦[and] President Obama, who is now twisting himself into knots trying to retract his retraction of his refudiation of the smear.
This is the usual leftist frustration. Â They cannot comprehend how when their arguments are so self-evident and true â€” and theyâ€™re up against a pack of incompetent racists like us â€” they can still fail so miserably to win the publicâ€™s support.
Leftists have anÂ crazy obsessive compulsive drive to defend Islam andÂ Imam Feisal Abdul Raufâ€™s radical plans to build the Ground Zero mosque. Islamophobia is their weak argumentÂ for supporting a religion that calls for the death of all non-Muslims andÂ honor killings for Muslims considered dishonorable.
