Why the Left and Islam Love Each Other

Left and Islam

Someone recently sent me a thought provoking editorial cartoon I can’t reproduce because it contains some vile language.

So, I will just describe it and clean up the language. The cartoon depicted in four panels a conversation between two young people in their twenties — a man and a woman. The woman was wearing the Obama campaign symbol. In the first panel, the man says, “I don’t believe that women should have any rights, and I think gays should be hanged.” The young woman responds, “Wow! What a complete primitive idiot you are! You must be a Republican!” “No,” responds the man, “I’m actually a Muslim, and those are my religious beliefs.” To which the woman replies, “Oh, I’m sorry! I apologize! I hope you don’t think I’m Islamophobic.”

A few days later, I received a similar cartoon that showed a Muslim man holding a sign that read: “Islam demands: Death for Homosexuals! No free speech! Women stay home and submit to their husbands! Death to infidels!”Standing next to him was a young woman of college age holding a sign with an arrow pointing to the Muslim. Above the arrow were these words: “I’m a liberal and he doesn’t really mean that.”

Values in Sharp Conflict

As these editorial cartoons so vividly illustrate, the love affair between the Left and Islam is mind-boggling because it is irrational. The Left claims to believe in freedom of thought, freedom of speech, sexual liberation and democracy.

All of these values are the exact opposite of those that are held dear by Islam. There is not a Muslim dominated nation in the world today where there is a true democracy, free speech, a free press and equal rights for women.

And the history of Islam makes it clear that the moment Muslims become the majority in any society, they take action immediately to suppress freedom and repress all other religions.

Further, the Left also scorns religion and exalts Man rather than God whereas Muslims believe in a god and hold their religion in high esteem.

So, what explains the odd couple represented by the unity of the Left with Islam?

The Unifying Force

There can be only one explanation — they are unified by their common hatred of Christianity. The Left considers Christians to be outmoded relics of the past who stand in the way of their pet “progressive” programs like abortion, same-sex marriage, euthanasia, the right to suicide and Socialism. Further, Christianity is viewed as pie-in-the-sky nonsense that encourages people to rely on wishful thinking instead of reason.

Of course, the same could be said of Islam, but Muslims are a distinct minority in America, and so, the Left focuses its hatred on Christians. Islam shares the Left’s hatred of Christianity. According to the Quran, Christians are infidels who should either be forced to convert or else be subjugated or executed. So, the Left rallies Muslims to its side in its effort to defeat all politicians with Judeo-Christian values. This means the Left united with Islam is a perfect example of the old saying, “Politics makes strange bed partners.”

The union of the Left with Islam is a marriage crafted by Satan.

  • The unifying force is CONTROL. Both liberals and islamists are permeated with a deep need to control others. The radical left and islam have a cult orientation. Both seek to control behavior, information, thinking and emotion. These insidious and deeply dysfunctional ideologies are steeped in totalitarian control, where the end justifies the means and genocide awaits. You cannot reason with them or trust them … ever.

    The only thing they respect is someone who is more powerful than they are. It is a “power-over” mind set. Islamist extremists are barbarians. Leftist liberals are blind and self-righteous. It’s very troubling. It’s why we must pray for our enemies – because these people are truly our enemies.

    • Muslims will buddy up with anyone who’s not christian or jew. So not surprising they use the left to any advantage they can. But lefties willing to surrender any and all of the “rights” they’ve rested from the US legal system is plain darn stupid!!
      When muslims take over the White House and present Michelle, Sasha and Malia with their burkas and take their drivers licenses from them I hope theres a photographer there to capture the look on Barack’s face : )
      America needs leaders who will put America and her Christianity first.
      I’ll give Trump his tariffs, and God bless him.

  • This still sounds like a fulfillment of prophesy since this country is not mentioned anywhere in Scripture, which is a frightening thought. I believe that those two elements mentioned here will start another civil war that will finally bring down this country, and it will be because of the wickedness that pervades our society.

  • Great article, Dave! I’ve always thought it was strange that the Left and Islam would be on the same side, when on the surface, they seem to have nothing in common. The same goes for the alliance with Communism and Islam. I see a lot of similarities, though, with Islam and Nazi ideology. I guess the common denominator is the spirit of the antichrist.
