It wasn't Maj. Nidal Hasan's jihadist ideology that prompted him to massacre 13 people at Fort Hood, says a top Islamic scholar.
It was "easy access to guns."
That's the word from Imam Zaid Shakir.
Are we clear now?
Likewise, I would postulate that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were not caused by jihadist ideology. They were caused by easy access to box cutters.
I don't think anyone actually believes this nonsense – but it illustrates the way two seemingly different ideologies meet to rationalize new ways Americans should make themselves vulnerable to attacks from their enemies.
Those two seemingly different ideologies are Islamo-fascism and left-wing socialism.
Both seek to disarm the American people.
Is there any doubt about why?
Do you think they both seek to make Americans safer?
My goodness, do I need to remind everyone that Hasan's killing spree took place on an Army base?
Is it necessary to remind everyone that even this Army base had strict rules on carrying firearms?
Is it necessary, once again, to point out that if any of those 13 victims, or others nearby, had been armed Hasan's shooting attack would have been cut short before 13 people were dead?
It hardly seems necessary to point this out. However, it is obviously is.
But the more important point is why Islamo-fascists and left-wing socialists have so much in common in their analysis of problems and their proposed solutions.
The answer is both simple and complex.
The simple answer is they have common enemies: The United States of America, Israel, the One True God of the Universe, Christianity, Judaism, Judeo-Christian morality, Western civilization.
For a deeper understanding of the unholy alliance between left-wing socialists and Islamic jihadists, I refer you to a great and thoughtful work – "United in Hate: The Left's Romance With Tyranny and Terror" by Jamie Glazov.
