Liberals Happy to Denounce Jihadists… as Long as They’re Republicans

During the Government Shutdown, we’ve heard more Democrats talk about Jihadists than we have after Nidal Hasan’s massacre (the families of the dead soldiers are still waiting for them to be treated as casualties of war) or the Boston Marathon Bombing.

When Muslims kill somebody, then the jaws of life won’t pry open a liberal’s mouth long enough to talk about Jihadists and 72 virgins. But they find their voice when they’re trying to insult Republicans.

What’s truly contemptible about this is that the only time liberals are prepared to drop remarks about 72 virgins and the dangers of Jihadism is when they’re not actually dealing with Islamic terrorists. It’s as if they were willing to call everyone Nazis… but the Nazis.

Cartoons like this and congressional rants about Republican “Jihadism” show full well that liberals know what Islamic terrorism is. Their temporary moments of ignorance are a front.

They know damn well that Muslim terrorists are blowing themselves up and why. They just maintain a bubble of silence about it.

Beyond all the dishonesty, there’s something treasonous about that. They are showing that they know about the threat full well. They just aren’t willing to acknowledge it. The only time they feel safe denouncing the Jihad is when they’re using it as a metaphor for the Republican Party.

Liberals will call anyone a Nazi… but a Nazi.

    “Jihadists and 72 virgins”

    You forgot you mention the boys of Allah’s little bordello aka heaven that are hand made by Allah for jihadists the likes of Mohamed Atta who were not into virgins

    Oh wait is it 72 virgins or a fist full of raisins?

    Liberals and Muslim jihadists share the common goal of the West’s destruction, along with its cardinal values: reason, individual rights, and capitalism. There is zero chance that you will hear liberals denounce Islam because they recognize ideological kinship when they see it. That’s also why liberals won’t denounce Muslims who behead homosexuals, sell blacks into slavery, consummate marriages with nine year-olds, and keep their women under sheets. Iranians can hang homosexuals from bridges and not a peep will you hear from any progressive, but woe betide the baker who refuses to ice a wedding cake for a couple of lesbians in Oregon. Suddenly civil rights are at stake. Do you see that the liberals’ pet causes and their favorite repressed groups are just pretexts to be used in the service of the West’s destruction? That they’re stalking horses to establish precedents, not ends in themselves? That when leftists apply the word “jihadist” to a group of feckless geldings like the RINOs in Congress they make the word ridiculous and obliterate the terrible concepts behind it? It’s by design.
