Calling out the bigots

There is an evil afoot in the conservative community.

That evil is anti-Muslim hate.

(I say “conservative community” knowing that most people who espouse that hate are likely CINOs–conservatives in name only. Conservatives are supposed to be the Reality-Based Community, is what I always thought. But the Muslims-Are-All… folks are not reality-based.)

Those who indulge that easy hate far too frequently fancy themselves informed on things Muslim, but they are as ignorant of Islam and Muslims as any brainwashed Islamist (or militant atheist) is of Christianity or Judaism.

Maybe they’ve read the Koran, or maybe they haven’t. No matter. Axes will be ground–must be ground.

Virtue-signaling chest-thumping keyboard-warrior shit must be shat.

They never tire of channeling, blissfully deaf to the sick irony, what boils down to an Islamist interpretation of Islam, and of Muslims: That only a fundamentalist, reductionist, literal interpretation of the Koran is the correct Islam, and that those who do not subscribe to suchlike are betrayers of True Islam–or just taqiyya liars like Hamas front-group, and perennial go-to of lazy journalists, CAIR.

And what do these supposedly Christian keyboard warriors propose? Surely not to make common cause with legitimate reform-minded Muslims–because, they are quick to point out, the laughable Religion Of Peace narrative (and yes, it was a laughably binary narrative that should die a painful death) requires one to conclude that any peaceful Muslims are the exception to the rule, that all (or at the very least, the overwhelming majority of) Muslims are, in their heart of hearts, Islamofascists.

This post will not change a single mind. I realize that. The haters have concluded that a war on 1.8 billion people, be it ideological or military or both, is a foregone conclusion. They welcome it. They rub their hands in glee for it. They pose and preen behind the narrative. They would rather make war on Muslims, ideologically or militarily, than adjust their ignorance to acknowledging the perverse modernity of Islamism:

Daniel Pipes breaks it down:

Those who make all Islam their enemy not only succumb to a simplistic and essentialist illusion but they lack any mechanism to defeat it. We who focus on Islamism see World War II and the Cold War as models for subduing the third totalitarianism. We understand that radical Islam is the problem and moderate Islam is the solution. We work with anti-Islamist Muslims to vanquish a common scourge. We will triumph over this new variant of barbarism so that a modern form of Islam can emerge.

I’m done with bigots. Done as done can be.

Split the difference. Let’s say half of Muslims want nothing to do with the Islamist death cult. Does that speak well of Islam that the other half finds some succor in Islamism? Of course not.

But surely you can grasp the fact that we should leave nearly a billion Muslims out of our easy, bigoted generalizations.

No, you can’t.

Which is why I am done with you.
