Islamofascism and the American Left

The week of October 22-26 witnessed the largest, most successful campus demonstrations by students not associated with the anti-American left in the history of campus protests. 114 college and university campuses participated in “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, which highlighted the threat from the Islamic jihad, and the oppression of Muslim women. It featured speakers such as former Senator Rick Santorum, Ann Coulter, Robert Spencer, Nonie Darwish, Wafa Sultan, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager and Daniel Pipes, and was organized by the David Horowitz Freedom Center with the help of Young America’s Foundation and the Leadership Institute.

At the beginning of the Week there were 6,000 website references to the protest. By its end there were more than 644,000. There was coverage – often multiple news reports and opinion columns -- in all the student papers on campuses where events took place and many more besides. In short, hundreds of thousands of members of the academic community were exposed to the message of the protests and the arguments over the issues they raised...

In response, anti-American leftists and organizations supporting the Islamic jihad organized a national campaign of vitriol and hate that was almost unprecedented. This campaign revealed the lengths to which the anti-American left will go to prevent the public from discussing the nature of the holy war that has been declared on them...

The attacks on Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week exposed the broad scope of the alliance between radical Islam and American leftists who regard it as their political task to run interference for America’s enemies....

So says the founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, which helped organize Islamo-fascism Awareness Week. His entire article can be found here.

The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.
Who will they go after first? Gays, women, communists?
How can you preach "tolerance" and support terrorists?

These people are idiots.
