I have wondered this for some time now.  What is it about Islam that draws out the liberal lunes in masses? 

You can say anything you like about Christianity or Judaism, but not Islam.  If you slam Christianity you are enlightened for not being duped into following a make believe diety.  If you slam Islam you are a racist, bigoted fool.  You are an Islamophobe.

Ever heard the term Christianophobe?  Didn’t think so.  It doesn’t exist because it is acceptable to hate Christians.  At least by the leftist liberals today.  Especially on college campuses.  Both faculty and students.

Below are some excerpts from an excellent article on the very subject.

Why do so many liberals praise a religion that, at its root, is quite conservative, if not fundamentalist?

Yes, these days, if you expose something murderous or hateful, you are guilty of a worse sin – the sin of judging. And on campuses these days, there is hardly a worse sin you could commit.

Why do they defend a faith that would not defend them? Worse still, why do they defend a faith that, in some cases, would do violence to them?

Last week, Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch and a New York Times bestselling author on radical Islam, was invited to speak at the University of Buffalo.

But he was unable to say much because of the vocal opposition. He was shouted down and reviled, especially when attempting to read Islamic texts describing Islamic beliefs.

To paraphrase, “Not on our campus! We are progressive. We are liberal. We are enlightened. You will not bring your hate-filled bigotry here!”

In Spencer’s own words, “I spoke a few sentences and made a couple of points in between being screamed at by Leftist and Islamic supremacist fascists who think they’re opposing fascism.”

Did you catch that? Spencer was opposed by staunch liberals and staunch Muslims. What an odd couple they make, yet this has happened time and again in the recent past. Why?

A few years ago, I read about a pro-Hamas, anti-Israel rally led by feminists and LGBT activists, among others on the left. Why in the world would groups like this support Hamas, which would kill or imprison them for their beliefs (and their sexual or romantic proclivities)?
