Yesterday, we brought you the Top 10 Islamapologists in the Obama Administration outlining the stamp of approval for Islam, even radical Islam, at the highest levels of the Executive Branch. Islamapologetics has become the latest fad within the Left’s agenda of cultural Marxism. Now, “Free Gaza” mouthpiece, Dennis Kucinich hops on board the Left’s revivalist bandwagon for Islam, proclaiming “Islam is a religion based upon peace, goodwill and the ethical treatment of all people on this planet.”
Islam is Peace? Can I hear an ‘Amen’, brother?!? Alleluiah, alleluiah! Or should we say…”Allahu Akbar“?
We have long been aware that the Left is adamantly hawkish about “separation of Church and State,” living in continual fear that Christianity and/or Judaism may rear themselves in the public sphere. If anyone dares to recite a Christian prayer in a public school, the Left is there to protest. If the Ten Commandments are displayed inside a courtroom, the Left is there to raise objection. Mocking Christianity is good Leftist fun. Leftists love Jew-hatred, too. Separation of Mosque and State is another story, though.
Islamapologetics is the Left’s new favorite pastime, particularly in response to Congressman Peter King’s hearing to determine if there is radicalization in the Muslim-American community. Dennis Kucinich’s remarks are just the latest in a long litany of examples of Leftist pontification that Islam is pure as the driven snow.
This hearing insinuates that violence and the Muslim religion go hand in hand. Nothing could be further from the truth. Islam is a religion based upon peace, goodwill and the ethical treatment of all people on this planet.
This kind of stereotyping opens the door to discrimination against the 2.5 million Muslims that live peacefully among us in the United States of America and the 1.66 billion Muslims that live throughout the world. We must not allow the acts of a few stoke the flames of xenophobia and resentment in this nation. If this resentment grows, peace will be delayed.
In the sociological context, in which Kucinich is speaking in his endorsement of the religion of Islam, stereotyping is defined thusly:
[A] simplified and standardized conception or image invested with special meaning and held in common by members of a group.
Kucinich falsely claims that the hearing “stereotypes” Islam, but his accusation stereotypes Islam as a religion that is inherently good. As a person of faith who isn’t Muslim, I would argue that nothing could be further from the truth, and I have to wonder what non-Muslim people of faith in Kucinich’s district think about this assertion.
