Whoever invented the concept of blogging was a genius. (Paging Al Gore?) We’re ten years into a new millennium, and blogs are everywhere. There are blogs devoted to a host of fascinating and not-so-fascinating topics like Civil War reenactments, JFK assassinaton conspiracy theories, macrobiotic cooking, and collecting sea glass rocks. Like we say here in the South, it takes all kinds.
One particularly troublesome feature of the blogosphere is what some of us like to call Islamapologist blogs. These are blogs whose writers stand up for Islamofascism in one way or another. That’s right — there really are people in the 21st century who defend a religion whose philosophy and values are stuck in the 7th century.
We’re talking about folks who try to convince the rest of the world that the Muslim Brotherhood is some sort hybrid of the Rotary Club and the Red Cross, writers who slap the “intolerant” label on those who disagree with a religion whose adherents freak out over women in bikinis drinking wine. Some of them actually claim that Islam is less dangerous than Christianity. (Islam didn’t earn the nickname “religion of peace” for nothing, after all.)
These blogs are made up of writers who deny the political nature of a dangerously political faith, and you’ll see blogs like these all across the political landscape. Naturally, you’ll find Islamapologists on the Left, but you’ll also discover them on the Right. Islamapologists write for sites that purport to offer balanced coverage of events, and some of them hold political views that would be laughable if they weren’t so dangerous.
With all of that said, here’s a list of the top ten Islamapologist blogs. Some of them are exactly what one would expect when it comes to apologists for Islamofascism, while others may be a bit surprising. Some have massive readerships, and others are more obscure and have more of a niche audience. The one thing they all have in common is their willingness to excuse or explain away the odious doctrine and philosophy of Islamofascism.
