The Ten Commandments of Leftist Reporting on Islam

Thanks to the rise of the internet and social media, people throughout the world can now gain access to far more information than was believed possible just two decades ago. However, the big leftist media conglomerates of old nevertheless retain great power to influence societal attitudes on a large scale…and they do not shy away from using that power to sway public opinion their way. Particularly in “movement media“, we see an endless stream ofradical propaganda that has become valuable as a political mechanism of organizing for the Shadow Party. But these and their compatriots in the so-called “mainstream media” have evolved even further in their role as a propaganda machine in recent years. They have become apologists not only for a secular ideology, but now also for a wholly political religion – Islam. These Islamapologists have many clear lines that they invariably refuse to cross in their reporting on this particular religion; lines that are so unmistakable that we can identify them specifically. They are the “Ten Commandments of Leftist Reporting on Islam.”
And we’re starting with… censorship.
The founder of Islam is Muhammad and, just as the life and teachings of Jesus are at the top of the ladder in Christianity, the life and teachings ofMuhammad are at the top of the ladder in Islam. Muhammad himself is the highest model for Muslims. His precepts as outlined in Sharia Law are considered by Muslims to be mandatory for all of mankind. Despite the unmistakable call in Islam for outright theocracy, wherein the religion and the state are completely inseparable, a situation that fundamentally imperils the very lives of all who dare dissent, the leftist media would, nevertheless, like you to meet and appreciate the founder of Islam. Meanwhile, those who may want to be critical face the possibility of being executed.
Arianna Huffington’s blog The Huffington Post tends to lead the pack in promoting Muhammad as an individual. Though criticized by others on the leftfor such things as “bogus and crackpot medical theories“, The Huffington Post frequently preaches the virtues of Muhammad with virtually no criticism for this Islamapologist behavior originating from any source outside conservative opinion media. Two of their recent Islamist “sermons” include “This Christmas, Give the Gift of Knowledge About Islam” and “The Idiocy of the Anti-Sharia Crowd“.
