Avowed champions of venerable social justice causes often boast their love for the downtrodden and less prosperous collective groups. In pursuing such “noble” egalitarian pretenses, historical wrongs must be righted. Modern multicultural Western society has been diced up into groups and ranked by how oppressed they perceptibly are, often termed “The Progressive Stack”. For example, as blacks were once enslaved in the West and often struggle in socioeconomic terms, putting blacks are near the top of the Progressive Stack; meaning their entitlement to social and physical resources outranks those of less oppressed groups. Women, once being subservient to men also find themselves in a formidable station on the Progressive Stack; lesbians, even more so, as homosexuality was historically criminalized.
This dividing of society is confined to an enlarging fringe group of the left. These ideas are mostly propounded by armchair academics, shameless opportunists capitalizing on social guilt, and gobbled up by morally uprooted useful idiots.
Such division only serves to atomize society to such an extent where individuals are eventually a part of no wholly uniting group; be it religion, ethnicity, nation, sexual orientation, sports team, food allergy, etc,.
The mainstream left are famed for supporting almost every conceivable civil rights movement since inception. Although many of these civil rights movements may appear harmless at face value, a lot of them conceal their more sinister intentions, slowly pulling at the thread of Western Civilization. Women’s Suffrage, Liberation, and subsequently modern feminism, have all been promoted by the left and deemed as being a ‘progressive’ or ‘liberal’ cause. While there are many valid points to be made about the mistreatment of women in abusive relationships or in the public arena; it has become clear that modern feminism has become little more than a pernicious conduit to dismantle the remnants of the nuclear family apart, leading to the limitless expansion of the state. Modern feminists are often an unsightly embodiment of the very ideology they shrilly preach. Many have either endured nasty or spoiled upbringings, prompting them to detest the mere fabric of the traditional family structure and wishing for its demise. Painting men out to being authoritarian and abusive, while “promising it all” to women has rendered modern relationships unstable. Women can raise a family, keep a high-energy career, enjoy a fulfilling sex life and plenteous leisure, but unfortunately, there are only twenty-four hours in a day. Something has to give. And that something is often the marriage or the kids as it would be a progressive heresy to be an anachronistic, unglamorous housewife.
Although feminists claim to protect women’s rights, there has been an almost deafening silence when it comes to the prescribed Islamic treatment of women. From the Quran:
Quran (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them [women]“
Quran (2:282) – (Court testimony) “And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women.”
Quran (5:6) – “And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it”
Quran 4:34: Allah has made men superior to women because men spend their wealth to support them. Therefore, virtuous women are obedient, and they are to guard their unseen parts as Allah has guarded them. As for women whom you fear will rebel, admonish them first, and then send them to a separate bed, and then beat them. But if they are obedient after that, then do nothing further; surely Allah is exalted and great!
Quran (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…”
From the Hadith and Sira:
Sahih Bukhari (6:301) – “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’”
Sahih Bukhari (2:28) & Sahih Bukhari (54:464) – Women comprise the majority of Hell’s occupants. This is important because the only women in heaven mentioned explicitly by Muhammad are the virgins who serve the sexual desires of men.
Sahih Bukhari (62:58) – A woman presents herself in marriage to Muhammad, but he does not find her attractive, so he “donates” her on the spot to another man.
Ishaq 734 – “As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.'”
Tabari Vol 9, Number 1754 – “Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals with you and do not possess anything for themselves.”
It is undeniable that compared to modern Western standards, women are treated abominably in Islamic countries and even in Islamic neighborhoods in Western countries. Women are subjected to barbaric customs and violence, but Muslims have been ostensibly hard-done-by according to the Progressive Stack. Leftists are often cultural and moral relativists, which would make foreign practices beyond questioning as other cultures and moral frameworks are allegedly equally valid, just different. Furthermore, given that Muslims rank higher than many leftists on the Progressive Stack, leftists are (by their twisted logic) socially indebted to Muslims for any existing inequalities.
Islam shares many ideological similarities with leftism. The logical conclusion of both ideologies is totalitarian; espousing anti-capitalism, globalism, expansionism, anti-Westernism, and only extending tolerance to their followers. In our age of rampant hedonism and nihilism, Islam has been able to exploit its adherents’ fertility in becoming an ideological force to be reckoned with, in the West. The West’s turning its back on Christian values in favor of secularism has rendered it defenseless to the proliferation of Islam. Islam is an uncompromising faith which has begun to impose its rules on citizens in Western countries where Muslims have become a sizable portion of the population. As a result of this, around a hundred non-legally-binding Sharia courts have emerged in the UK alone – not to mention thousands of unaddressed cases of female genital mutilation, spousal abuse, cousin marriage and birth defects, honor killings, rape gangs (as a form of jihad), etc,.
More opportunistic Muslims have immersed themselves in Western politics and have secured some influential positions. A Muslim party has been established in France. London’s mayor is a Muslim who has shared a platform with terrorist sympathizers in the past. CAIR has garnered some formidable support, despite questionable connections overseas. One of the most prominent ‘Islamo-feminist’ and Women’s March leader, Linda Sarsour, has encapsulated the bizarre convergence of Islam and feminism. Sarsour once told Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) sufferer Ayaan Hirsi Ali
but also attempts to sugarcoat Sharia in an attempt to attract useful idiots.
By relying on the profound ignorance and imperviousness to cognitive dissonance of unsuspecting potential supporters who are desperate to prove themselves as good virtuous people, Sarsour has gained quite considerable fame, notwithstanding her abhorrent positions.
Writer, Theresa Corbin, converted to Islam citing that “Islam turned out to be the religion that appealed to my feminist values”. Arch-THOT Lindsey Lohan had been spotted in public with a Quran on a few occasions. Lohan had developed quite a reputation for her bacchanal and prurient lifestyle – a conversion to Islam would see her swing from one moral extreme to another.
Feminism is often associated with radical left-wing politics, promising equality but yielding embittered supremacy. Plenty of prominent and empowering women such as Margaret Thatcher, Ayn Rand, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Phyllis Schlafly, and Nancy Reagan have all have been viciously abused by left-wing feminists of all stripes for their right-wing values. Instead of putting ideological differences to one side and praising these women for their accomplishments, feminists have dished out torrential invective upon them – saving the worst as a posthumous aspersions to Thatcher, Rand, Schlafly, and Reagan – proving that the mainstream feminist movement is strictly tolerant of females with radical left-wing politics.
Several SJWs have expressed their deference to Islam while chiding Christianity, being the most crucial point to the left’s d’alliance with Islam – the fact that Islam is irreconcilably antithetical to Western values.
Leftists can weaponize Islam as a battering ram to demolish the dilapidated remnants of Western values. Muslims boast a significantly higher birth rate to Westerners. Strength in numbers, within Islam, will eventually consume our valueless, nihilistic society. Furthermore, a significant proportion of European Muslims are wholly dependent on welfare. Their higher fertility often entitles them to larger state perquisites. Muslims also vote overwhelmingly for left-wing parties, putting their financial or social habits beyond question in many public platforms, as their detractors are simply Islamophobic. So, in playing the long game and finally deconstructing Western values, with “the long march through the institutions” drawing its close, leftists will have a clear numerical advantage in future elections, ad infinitum. However, before a progressive utopia can be inaugurated, I predict that history will repeat itself and Islam will trump “progress”.
Apart from the scornful repudiation of Western values, limitless expansion of State power, and globalism; leftism does not stand for anything. Leftism disregards human nature and fanatically seeks to regulate every human interaction, guiding them under threat of compulsion while boldly proclaiming their task of achieving civil freedom for all who submit. All activities which serve to destabilize society are tolerated – triggering a “Hegelian Dialectic” wherein lies a problem (in this particular case an unstable society due to unfettered Islamic immigration), reaction (public outcries to stabilize society), and a predetermined solution (which is always an incremental growth to the size and power of the State). Under a relativistic moral value structure, confusion and disharmony ensues as individuals often require ‘something greater’ than themselves. In the absence of a formal religion, the ‘something greater’ is often the State and an irrepressible will to power. Conversely, Islam bestows its followers with a strong sense of fraternity (provided that they belong to the correct ideological offshoot). Despite the left’s using Islam to further their political agenda, Islam will engulf or expel any leftists in a position of power, recreating a similar scenario to that of the Iranian revolution. And what will be left behind? A Mad Max world under Sharia law and worse weather? I surely hope not.
