Liberals, leftists, and secularists enabling cultural Jihad in the West

Liberals, leftists, and secularists enabling cultural Jihad in the West, by William Kilpatrick.

If Islam ever succeeds in subjugating America it won’t be primarily through force of arms, but through cultural jihad (aka stealth jihad).

For cultural jihad to succeed, however, it’s necessary that there are enough people in the target culture who are willing to ignore it or even to facilitate it. Put more bluntly, there have to be enough people who are either too complacent to notice the threat or so stupid that they mistake the spread of Islam for a positive development.

Yep.

Islamists can’t do the job of subversion all by themselves. They need help. Other people have to prepare the ground for them. Luckily for the Islamists, liberals, leftists, and secularists have been busy preparing the ground for years — in schools, in academia, in the media, in government, in the corporate world, and elsewhere.

Conservative pundits often warn that if we continue along our current path, our society will be changed beyond recognition. But much of the Orwellian future they predict has already arrived. Large chunks of the leftist agenda are now accomplished facts. The left controls the narrative about many key issues, and the narrative that they have woven — a mix of multiculturalism, relativism, and identity politics — creates an ideal environment for stealth jihadists to ply their trade.

This is their brains on PC:

In their response to events — particularly those that involve race, religion, ethnicity, or gender — many are no longer guided by facts, or by experience, or even by the evidence of their own eyes, but by “official” narratives. Even if the narrative is the inverse of reality, it takes precedence over reality. If the narrative says the Emperor is clothed, that’s the end of the discussion. If the narrative says the wolf-at-the-door-is actually a sheep, you must agree. Moreover, if you’ve been well-conditioned you’ll agree with enthusiasm. …

A 2017 Rasmussen poll showed that “Democrats are more likely to think that Muslims are mistreated in America than to think that Christians are persecuted in the Islamic world.” Considering that 90,000 Christians died for their faith in 2016 compared to a reported 127 Muslim victims of assault in the U.S., that’s quite a disconnect from reality. …

It’s working:

It’s easy to harbor the hope that if push comes to shove, the vast majority would drop their illusions and rally to the defense of their country and their heritage. I’m not so sure. A good part of the left’s cultural demolition campaign is devoted to demonizing our cultural heritage. Thanks to our leftist-controlled education system, tens of millions are convinced that this is a rotten society, based on rotten principles. It’s so bad, they’ve been taught, that only a fresh start will do. Moreover, they’ve been conditioned to believe that almost any other system of government, morals, and religion would be preferable to what we have now. Socialism? Communism? Islam? Why not give it a chance? …

How about big business? In the past, businessmen were thought to be conservative. That may still be true of many small business owners. But big business is now only a shade to the right of your average left-leaning university. …

To the ordinary person, this may seem like taking sides. But to the giant corporations the whole idea of loyalty (other than to the company) must seem quaint. They are, after all, global entities. …

The beauty of these algorithmic adjustments is that hardly anyone will notice. And after a while the whole question of taking sides will be moot. That’s because only one side of the “debate” on Islam will be presented. Eventually, it will be taken for granted that there is and always has been only one side.
