A note from Radarsite: This is the epithet with which yours truly was labeled for posting my Understanding the New Left at another venue. I won't mention the site or the commenter's non de plume; but I will repeat their comment. I will repeat it because I think it's important. In fact, I think it's so important that I'm responding to this nasty little comment with one of the longest articles I've ever posted.
They've accused me of selling hate, like a fishmonger sells fish. An odd analogy certainly; but nevertheless, am I guilty? Yes, I confess, I am most definitely guilty. But guilty of much more than what they accuse me of. I have been ambitiously mongering my hate for quite some time now, but it seems that I'm not a very good mongerer. I must not be doing a very good job, because so few people are buying what I've got to sell. And of course I've got a lot of fellow mongerers out there mongering their hate, too; but we've all got the same complaint. No matter how hard we try, we just don't have enough customers these days.
We're not just selling hate though, are we? We're also selling truth. But unfortunately we've had only limited success with this product. Some people, like our original commenter, just don't want it. They don't want it anywhere near them. It's an unwelcome guest in their house. Their houses are built on a foundation of illusions and lies. And they get mightily pissed off and intolerant if we start messing around with their foundations and disturbing their cozy little houses. They want to be left in peace to contemplate their lovely vision of this world, and we, the hate mongerers, the truth mongerers, are disrupting their lives. And they get quite resentful, don't they? They call us names and slam their doors shut in our faces.
Well, so be it, we'll just keep on selling. And the truth we're selling today is simply this:
We are in a war, folks. A desperate war for our very survival. We are fighting against an enemy who hates us clearly, openly and without qualifications. They are driven by the passion of their crystal clear hatred. This dark entity of which we speak is Islam. Pure and simple. Islam. Islam is, was, and always will be the sworn enemy of freedom and tolerance; and therefore always has been and always will be the enemy of the Judeo/Christian West. There has never been a wavering from this eternal jihad, only temporary lapses and strategic withdrawals. Islam is founded on the principles of conquest. Not just any old conquests, but conquest of the infidel. And that, my friends, means you and me.
No amount of obfuscations or euphemistic denials on the part of collaborators and fools can alter this basic fact. All that these blind or cowardly manouvers achieve is a kind of procrastination, a slight delaying of the inevitable confrontation. A confrontation which they have so far refused to acknowledge. But, unfortunately, that refusal doesn't make our enemy go away. It just makes their job a little easier.
Here then are some of the truths we're selling today. At least look them over before you refuse to buy them. If you look at them carefully, you may hopefully learn to hate our enemies. And, yes, that is precisely what we need. Hate. Because without meeting their hatred with our own hatred, just as strong or even stronger, we will never win this war. No war was ever won without learning how to hate the enemy. And this one is certainly no exception. -rg
Recent History Of Islam
Cross posted from Faith Freedom.org
(Note: The West changed greatly in the 1960s. And in response, so did the world, and so did Islam. In particular, and politically, the West underwent a powerful Second Socialist Wave [after the First one with the "New Deal" 1930s]. This new "Great Society," "Civil Rights Era," "New Left," "hippie generation," etc. saw a profound upswing in cultural anti-Westernism and anti-Americanism. Even, and especially, in the West and America. Islam noted all this and changed dramatically -- and almost completely for the worse. Then, in 1967, tiny Israel defeated six massive Islamic armies simultaneously. And Islam changed even more dramatically -- and even more for the worse. Hence, today's Islam.)

A poll published by Britain's Policy Exchange think tank bore out the poisonous impact this indoctrination has had on young Muslims in the country. Thirty-seven percent of British Muslims between the ages of 16-24 would rather live under Shari'a law than under British Common Law; 36 percent think Muslims should be killed if they convert to another religion; 13 percent admire al-Qaida and similar terror groups; and a whopping 74 percent of young British Muslims believe women should wear veils.
They are the enemy and they are here now...
More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined. (source)
