One of the tactics of the appeaser or apologist is the use of disinformation. They use this tactic deliberately or even without their knowledge as useful idiots. In this case, itâ€™s a deliberate attempt to paint the Judeo-Christian culture as the enemy of civilization.
Robert Spencer from JihadWatch writes in the Assyrian International News Agency:
A new book that is climbing the New York Times Bestseller List warns Americans of a dedicated minority of religious fanatics who are hijacking a great religion and actively working to destroy the United States Constitution and set up a theocracy in America, in which nonbelievers will be discriminated against or even summarily killed. Nor is their nefarious vision confined to the United States alone: this small but influential and wealthy band of religious zealots is also trying to turn events in the Middle East to their own advantage, so as to advance their religious agenda there also.
Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Muhammad Atta? No, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, and Tim LaHaye. The book in question is Chris Hedges’ American Fascists, which argues that America as we know it is under threat — not from Islamic jihadists, but from a small group of evangelical Christians who are determined to remake the United States as a Christian state.
Thatâ€™s right, itâ€™s not the Islamists and their jihadist tactics, both violent and non-violent, who are the enemy, but that Bible church down the street and the Trinity Broadcasting Network. This kind of misdirection is a tried and true tactic of real fascists like the Nazis who used it successfully to soften-up their victims and rot their ability from within to mount a defense against the invading ideological horde.
The threat is imminent. Hedges claims that “those arrayed against American democracy are waiting for a moment to strike, a national crisis that will allow them to shred the Constitution in the name of national security and strength.” He even asserts that “those in the movement often speak about such a moment with gleeful anticipation.” For now — but only for now — the Christian Right is “forced to function within the political system it seeks to destroy.”
Notice the use of words and his total lack of understanding of the real threat before us. Like all useful idiots, Mr. Hedge is blind to the many non-violent jihads that the Islamists are using to gain power and implement Shariah law in the non-Muslim world. They are currently “forced to function within the political system it seeks to destroy” and CAIR and the MAS are excellent examples. Hereâ€™s an actual theocrats who threaten to â€œshred the Constrictionâ€ that Hedge and his cronies seem to be blind to.
Before he left Britain one step ahead of law enforcement and returned to his native Lebanon, the jihadist Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad often boasted of his intention to “transform the West into Dar Al-Islam” and establish Islamic law on British soil. “I want to see the black flag of Islam flying over Downing Street,” he said, and his now-disbanded al-Muhajiroun group was dedicated to this goal. The transformation of Britain into an Islamic state could come in two ways, he explained: “if an Islamic state arises and invades,” in which case “we will be its army and its soldiers from within.” But if no such Islamic state arises, Bakri said that Muslims would convert the West to Islam “through ideological invasion…without war and killing.”
Mr. Hedge ignores the reality of the real â€œideological invasionâ€ that is taking place right under his nose everyday in the non-Muslim world. Here are just a few happening just last week from my current Gathering Storm Weekly Storm Report Newsletter:
- Muslim Air Force
It’s the same old “why Muslims are different and need special treatment” routine we are all familiar with. Just note, it’s for the Australian Air Force personnel, written by a serving Muslim.
- Two accused of plotting terror while in Cleveland
The two men are accused of being part of what prosecutors say is a terror cell based in Toledo that trained to support insurgents fighting in Iraq.
- The Era of Individual Jihad
Al Qaeda ideologues such as Abu Mus’ab al Suri have been strong advocates for individual jihad.
- Cheney warns of terrorist caliphate stretching to Indonesia
And it is they, the terrorist, who have ambitions of empire.
- Americans for Jihad?
Daniel Maldonado joined a growing list of westerners who are embracing jihad. But not all of these converts stay in the Islamic faith.
- Electronic Jihad
Read it all here at MEMRI;The Objectives of Electronic Jihad One objective of electronic jihad which is frequently evoked by the mujahideen is assisting Islam by attacking websites that slander Islam.
So, whoâ€™s really doing the invasion, Mr. Hedge?
Should we turn our attention away from a real threat to an imagined one? That is what Chris Hedges and the other anti-theocracy writers are asking us to do. While fiction has always competed with reality in the public discourse about the Islamic jihad, the Christian theocracy scare books represent projection on a massive scale.
Quit hunting Christian theocrats under your bed, Mr. Hedge and stop sounding your ill-conceived warnings against â€œChritianismâ€. As a true useful idiot you are aiding the misdirection of our attention from the much larger theocratic threat that is well on its way to reaching its global objectives â€“ Islamism.
