Storm Track Disinformation: The Left Needs to Get Its Definitions Straight

It seems the liberal Left has its panties in a bunch over the growing popularity of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. The author of a column at Badger Herald is all in huff about the term Islamo-fascist. Like any good lefty he consulted his dictionary and came up with this definition.

Anyone knowledgeable about politics can tell you that fascism — a system where citizens are subservient to the state — is the antithesis of radical Islam — a system where practitioners are subservient to the Quran.
Umm…excuse me. You are not knowledgeable about politics, sir. Fascism is the correct word because – and this is where the Islamic apologist show their ignorance of political history – Islam is the State. Islam is both a religion and a socio-political system of thought. Islamism is the proper term for the ideology and Islamo-fascist is the correct term for those who practice it.

But the author the piece only starts to show his ignorance.

Read the rest at The Gathering Storm.

I'm a very proud, well informed, and widely read leftist. HOWEVER, I do realize the threat that islamic supremicism and fascism poses. What I find morbidly ironic is that the right (in bed with fascism) is the political voice that realizes this. I fear that, without a brain the failure of the left is going to deal a serious blow to civilization.

We accept all voices here at the Infidel Bloggers Alliance. Myself, Epaminondas, and several of our other writers are lifelong Democrats who have turned rightward because of exactly the ignorance you speak of the left demonstrating.

If you want to, you ought to begin commenting here from your left perspective, and if you are not too hostile towards us, I will make you a member, and you can propose some leftie solutions to the problem.

Thus far, I have not been able to find any. That's why I have turned rightward.

However, that being said, the exact reason I am doing this is because I don't want to see gays, apostates, and adulterers stoned to death, and because I like freedom of speech/conscience, and I like all the decadent freedoms of the West.
