Gizmodo Bravely Stands Up For Hardcore Islam

From the article

The State Department’s anti-ISIS social media campaign, Think Again Turn Away, took its inept hearts and minds mission a step further in the wrong direction this morning by promoting an anti-Islam advocate as a human rights hero.

In honor of #HumanRightsDay, Think Again Turn Away tweeted this fact sheet highlighting the accomplishments of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

It looks like Ms. Ali went through quite a rough patch as a member of Islam, and stands against the worst segments of Islam. Obviously, Gizmodo, like the good little Progressive drone it is, as written by Kate Knibbs, has a problem with standing against hardcore Islam.

The problem? Ayaan Hirsi Ali espouses a worldview where Islam is different from other religions, in that it is an inherently violent “cult of death.” She supports the proposed ban of face veils in France, and of minarets in Switzerland. In 2007, she called for the West to defeat Islam using military force.

She also stands against female genital mutilation, forced marriages, marrying off girls as young as 6, stoning women for being raped, not allowing women to drive, not allowing women out of the house without a male family member, and treating women like 2nd class citizens, among others. One would think Kate, as a woman, would have a problem with the way women are treated in hardcore Islam. Negative. The Narrative about Islam comes before women. It’s amazing that Progressives, who say they’re all for Women, would go after Ali, among others, for standing up for women’s rights

By highlighting Ali, the State Department is highlighting the belief that radicalism and violence are woven into Islam, and that “good” Muslims must open their eyes and reject many of the underpinnings of their beliefs. Instead of excoriating ISIS for perverting Islam, the stance treats ISIS as a natural extension of the religion.

ISIS is an extension of Islam. They’re practicing it as Mohammad did. Radicalism and violence are woven into political Islam. If the violence and radicalism is rejected, this would be a rejection of Mohammad, the “perfect man”. If liberals are standing against people like Ms. Ali, doesn’t this mean, going by liberal absolutist talking points, that liberals are standing for the way women are treated in Islam?

    Are you suggesting that most Muslims support ISIS ? Isn’t ISIS actually killing mostly other Muslims? This would seem to indicate to me that most Muslims do not like iSIS or its idea of Islam
    Of course like the warmists many people want other people to fight ISIS because ISIS. Is so bad
    I say let them go first into battle

    Ayaan is my hero. The suffering and indignity that she and her sister endured, even as a devout muslima, forced to flee her homeland and move to an utterly strange land and culture where she didn’t speak the language and who’s customs were upside-down from her own. Her family came and tried to force her back to Somalia. It’s totally understandable that her sister was broken, but for Ayaan to survive and have the spirit to thrive and become a force for good and an inspiration for freedom is almost beyond imagination.

    There are various factions of Islam. They are at war with each other as much as they are at war with non-believers. The most virulent of factions are actually closer to the true form if Islam as practiced by it’s creator, and it’s human originator.

    If you don’t believe this, then you have not studied their book.

    It is a cult. It is a psychosis. It is not based on anything peaceful or any way holy.

    Those who are deemed “moderate”, are like those people who now participate in Kwanza as a belief system. They just choose to do something because they were told about it. They’ve not read about it or even know how it was established.

    For a woman to join Islam is like a cow walking voluntarily into a butcher shop. The cow sees his friends walk in and not leave, therefore it must be a popular place.
