A New Fantasy of Power
[Norman] Podhoretz is at the height of his form. He has it. He knows what has been going on in America since 1932 when Edmund Wilson, becoming Marxist, exulting in the Depression, pronounced that 'we now have a chance to take our country away from the businessmen who took it from us.' A score from Walden time, now to be settled, because the normal sources of strength of the republic had been shaken. A fantasy of power. So the 1960s. The radicalization of the intellectual community was not a response to a new perception of evils of bourgeois society, but a response to a new fantasy of power . . . .Fast forward 44 years later and Matthew Vadum explains how sharia-supremacists collaborate with Leftists to destroy the United States. He lays out the information in Volume 10 of the Civilization Jihad Reader Series from the Center for Security Policy.
The issues of 'poverty,' 'war,' 'racism,' were manipulated by intellectuals to establish their new politics. He is right. The main political values of the American intellectual community are anti-democratic or non-democratic [.] The armies of youth of the 1960s were commanded.
Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., President and CEO of the Center writes in the foreword that "the jihadists' success... owe much to the decades-long march of cultural Marxism through the key pillars of American society: academia, faith communities, government (especially national security), law enforcement, and media."
It is clear that Hollywood leftists have long displayed intentional ignorance of the crimes of Communist and Muslim regimes, as noted by Norman Berdichevsky in his 2013 article at the New English Review.
How is it, though, that two seemingly opposing groups could come together? It is because "communists, leftists and progressive operatives see Judeo-Christian principles as a force for ill in the world" and want them eliminated. Likewise, jihadists have vowed to destroy Western civilization. Consequently, "this shared antipathy to the traditional religious values that inspired and nurtured Western civilization, allow Islam and the left to make common cause."
This Red-Green axis was strengthened as America's Intelligence Community's ability to "protect against propaganda whether of the communist or taqiyya varieties" has been severely weakened.
The real story of Russian influence into our world is routinely overlooked. Yet the "ties between Western leftists and jihadists who were recruited, trained and, in some cases... managed by the Soviet Union and the KGB has led to a decades-long collaboration that for too long operated mostly in the shadows." Declassified information like the Mitrokhin Archive and the Venona Papers have "illuminated how communist agents stoked the flames of Islamic terrorism and infiltrated deeply inside the ranks of the U.S. government."
Thus, America finds itself confronting "cultural Marxists and
jihadis now working hand-in-hand to demean our culture, destroy
the nuclear family, trash the nation's heritage and undermine non-
Muslim religious communities." And this is being underwritten by
the "left's wealthy donors and foundations." Their "shared loathing
for America" and the Constitution has resulted in millions of
dollars going towards weakening America.
Specifically, Matthew Vadum highlights the following by which the Red-Green Axis works to weaken American resolve.
- Psychological warfare whose primary tools are 'name-calling, intimidation, and the suppression of facts.'
- Campaigns to make our culture 'Islam-friendly while weakening American resolve to fight Islamic supremacism and the terrorism it deploys.'
- The Left's insistence that any terror problem is with us, not with Islam and the demand that 'Americans should change their culture to accommodate the new arrivals.'
Vadum reminds the reader of the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who wrote that "Islamic extremism today, like bolshevism in the past is an armed doctrine. It is an aggressive ideology promoted by fanatical, well-armed devotees. And like communism, it requires an all-embracing long-term strategy to defeat it."
In fact, "an Islamic state is necessarily totalitarian."
It is mindboggling that the Left "who abhors the U.S. and its market-based economy" would link with Islam "which emphatically... rejects virtually everything for which the socialist left claims to stand for," i.e., freedom of thought, women's rights; gay rights, the separation of church and state, and human rights. But the overriding goal is to destroy America, its values and its economic system.
With the Left romanticizing jihadis and denying the reality of shariah law coupled with their "desire to rid the world of U.S. 'imperialism' and capitalism', they forge the unholy alliance." Such a naive viewpoint has leftist leaders fawning over jihadis who will, when they see fit, surely murder these people when they outlive their usefulness.
Left-wing Democratic politicians Barack Obama, Keith Ellison, and Andre Carson have extensive links with Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States, yet few call them out on these unseemly connections.
No word conjures more concern than the mere accusation of "Islamophobia" which makes jihadists untouchable since the "media-academic-entertainment complex largely sanitizes Islam, presenting it as a benign, misunderstood religion" which can never be analyzed or criticized.
The "extreme-left Center for Constitutional Rights… is just one of many radical activist groups using American tax laws against [the United States]." Thus, the "use of non-profit organizations establishes a zone of legitimacy within which fundraising recruitment and even outright planning can occur." Consequently, our country has become a "primary base of Islamic terrorist operations."
The Red-Green Axis groups are seemingly "odd bedfellows" unless one understands that their respective ultimate goal is to "bring America to its knees." In fact, "just like our Soviet Communist enemies during the Cold War, Muslims are using Americans' goodness and their sense of fair play, including an aversion to being accused of racial stereotyping, against America." Although Islam is not a race, "smears do not necessarily have to make sense" in the world of extreme political correctness.
It behooves every American to understand that "it isn't Islamophobia when they really are trying to kill you." There is nothing irrational regarding genuine concerns about enemies who vow to annihilate America. Yet, "major foundation-funded nonprofit sources of anti-Islamophobia propaganda in the U.S." include the:
- Brennan Center for Justice at NYU's School of Law (BCJ)
- Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
- Media Matters for America
- Center for American Progress (CAP)
- Institute for Policy Studies (IPS)
- Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
When a knowledgeable speaker such as Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America explains how Islamic law is not compatible with the U.S. Constitution, the "Left can be counted on to make an example of her." And far-Left philanthropic groups such as the Ford Foundation provide the platforms for "radicals to denounce America and boost its Islamic supremacist enemies."
Vadum points out that "Islamic supremacists, including CAIR operatives, have been working with the violent, radical left-wing Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement since at least 2014." Yet, "[t]he seditious collaboration in Ferguson, MO between anti-American left-wingers... and anti-American Islamic supremacists, has received scant attention from the media."
In the conclusion to his 77-page booklet, Matthew Vadum emphasizes that the
Left creates an alternate reality in which world temperatures claimed to be rising at an imperceptibly slow rate pose more of a threat to mankind than… jihadis in suits working to undermine the Constitution.Furthermore,
many Americans -- well, make that most Americans -- have no idea how closely figures in both major political parties, government, academia, Hollywood, grassroots activism, and other fields are working, wittingly or unwittingly to make America safe for Islam and sharia.And that's exactly the way those planning the next 9/11 like it.

Many making the accusations of xenophobia live in rarified societies and neighborhoods or in high-end and fashionable apartment buildings with security guards and doormen, immune from the consequences of Open Borders, loss of manual jobs, overseas nation-building, and the harmful effects arising from perfunctory background checks and superficial vetting.

The Rage of IslamTo preserve his irrational sense of honor, the Muslim man must blame others for any wrongdoing. Conforming to this perverse logic, United Nations Human Rights Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, Dubravka Šimonović, blames Israel for the violence committed by Palestinian men against their own women. If Israel’s retaliatory attacks were indeed the cause, shouldn’t the Israeli women be even more abused by their husbands? But that is not the case.
It begins in the home. Family life is a microcosm of the surrounding culture. Inside and outside the Islamic home, there is oppression, subordination, envy, animosity, shame, enslavement, and emotional and physical pain for any deviation. Muslim women are among the poorest, most oppressed, and least educated in the world, caged by their cumbrous shrouds in the insufferable desert heat, by their misogynist sharia laws, and by their chauvinist husbands. The 7th-century Bedouin woman’s attempt at privacy and protection has become a symbol of humiliation, servitude, and protection from men who are raised to lack restraint. Thus clad and maltreated, there is no natural interaction between the sexes, such as is found elsewhere. Not only are the women deprived of freedom and individuality, but they are also denied sunlight and Vitamin D, and more likely to develop osteoporosis, experience pelvic fracture during childbirth, and have babies who are disposed to seizures.
The Muslim family is a hatchery for abnormal behavior, its dynamics providing constant frustration. Just as Islam seeks to dominate all other religions, so the man seeks to dominate all within his dominion -- the employer who humiliates his employee, the husband who beats his wife, and the father who kills his daughter for his “honor.” It is seen in the pain needlessly inflicted on cattle brought to slaughter during the Islamic holiday of Eid. The sounds of the men’s sadistic torture, and animals bleating and bleeding in the streets, increase their indifference to cruelty and the value of life. All of these are nurtured within the family.
While the Jewish state sounds alarms to take immediate shelter from incoming rockets, the Palestinians provide no shelter. Rather, they often position their launch sites at schools or hospitals, adding women and children as human shields to increase the death toll from Israel’s reprisals and garner more world “compassion.” While Israel provides playground shelters, Hamas teaches children to decapitate with swords, handle automatic rifles, and employs them to construct terror tunnels. Irreverence for life is widespread throughout Islamic culture, and is both cause and consequence for Palestinian anger and aggression. It cannot be attributed to Israel’s retaliations.
Another assault on Islamic women is the Female Genital Mutilation performed on young girls -- an excruciating, barbaric procedure of castration done without anesthesia to suppress her sexual desires, guarantee her virginity and ensure faithfulness before marriage. The risks include interference with normal female bodily functions, infections, exsanguination, and death, and psychological impairment as the young cannot emotionally rebel against their parents. They face another agonizing reversal surgery prior to marriage. How long before this, too, is blamed on Israel?
While boys and girls in Western cultures learn to communicate and socialize with each other, pursue their choice of careers and mate for marriage, Muslim youths are kept apart. The sexual attraction found throughout the entire natural world is spurned by Islam as “shameful”; they attach an unhealthy negativity to all aspects of sexuality. Social segregation leads to discomfort, fear, and hostility. Arab men learn to hate women and indulge in homosexual behavior with boys or effeminate men (considered an acceptable substitute), thereby emasculating the victimized male. The result is sexual confusion. The intense sexual repression and misogyny emerge as the rage and rape seen in the youths who are sent to the lands of the infidel. The husbands remain unhappy, confused, and violent. Yet Israel is blamed for the degenerate behavior with which Islamic society is riddled.
In some Muslim societies, consanguineous marriages are encouraged, often producing sick, dysfunctional children -- suitable, perhaps, for jihad martyrdom. Polygamous marriages with as many as four wives are also acceptable but deprive all of the intimacy and security found in faithful monogamous marriages. The effects of polygamy are favoritism and divisiveness, neglect, deprivation, jealousy, and bitterness. The women are stuck in a loveless marriage, beaten into submission, and robbed of friendships. Further, the Koran and Hadith sanction beating wives, with encouragement and guidelines provided on television by the Mufti of Gaza.
The children in such arrangements often grow to be resentful of their half-siblings, disrespectful of or deeply angry at their father, while feeling contempt and shame at their mother’s subservience. A loveless household breeds scorn and provides the perfect setting for the young male to become a stern husband and father, an unquestioning suicidal murderer, or a deranged sadist who receives sexual satisfaction from causing pain and degradation.
All the aforesaid fester in the daily life of the Islamic home.
For fourteen centuries, Mohammed’s examples of looting, enslavement, decapitation, and conquest have been the paradigm for his followers. The price of constant war and bloodshed has been their humanity. Islam keeps its adherents unschooled and severely restricted, lacking in compassion, courtesy, industry, and deficient in empathy for the suffering of others. Instead of yielding happiness, comfort, and security for its people, this religious, political, cultural, and economical ideology produces indoctrinated partisans, dedicated to hate the infidel and conquer land for their god. To feed the war machine, there must be constant illiteracy, stress, anger, blame, shame, and no bonds to love or family. The individuals are kept focused on their own anxieties and the state’s passion for a caliphate, taught during prayers five times daily.
A study conducted by Oxford University has shown that the male must make as many as 34 head-to-prayer mat contacts five times per day, often resulting in a zebibah (or prayer bump) and traumatic brain injury along with mental disorders. The practice is known to cause irritation, aggression, depression, and cognitive impairment, all to feed the cult and war mentality. Known as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), it can affect thinking (memory, reasoning), sensation (touch, taste, smell), language (communication, expression, understanding), and emotion (depression, anxiety, personality change, aggression, social inaptness). It can cause epilepsy, and increases the conditions for age-related Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and other brain disorders.
Simonovic is sympathetic to the culture but cannot define it. Apart from prayer rugs, Islam has produced nothing but state-of-the-art terrorism techniques over the centuries. Their cultural accomplishments are kept to a minimum with half the people’s brain power confined under hijabs and burqas, and the other half driven to riot, kill, or commit suicide, as the outworking of the aberrant behavior that is inculcated from cradle to grave. Creativity flourishes in a free society; slave states produce tears.
The greatest fear to Muslim men may now well be the threat of modernization and the liberation of women. Throughout fourteen hundred years of history, the men have had their humbled dhimmis, the social and sexual inferiors that have bolstered their self-worth and warped sense of honor. The culture of the West and of Israel threaten Muslim male dominance. Add to this, their sense of resentment that their beleaguered and despised neighbor, Israel, has proven to be culturally, economically, and militarily superior to the Palestinians, a horde that has failed to produce a similar or better society during the same time, despite the world’s generosity.
It is obvious that the violence inherent within the Muslim male has its roots in the lurid instability of the home, the mosque, and their society in general. Tragically, instead of addressing the real source of the problem, Muslims are trained to blame anything but themselves. Islam has had many “whipping boys.” Blaming Israel’s retaliatory actions for Muslim violence, as proclaimed by Ms. Simonovic, is like accusing the victim of antagonizing his attacker by defending himself.
Disturbingly, Islam appears to have been masterfully crafted to be the antithesis of Judaism and Christianity that preceded it. The Bible celebrates life; the Koran sacrifices it. Wife-beating is merely one of innumerable components that form the atrocity of Islam and threaten the survival of humankind.
