Islamic Feelings of Entitlement
It has become ever more obvious that there is a deep psychological affinity between liberals and Islamofascists. On the face of it, this affinity seems absurd: liberals champion gay rights and a so-called emancipation of women, while Islamofascists seem never quite happy unless they are stoning homosexuals or degrading women. But the affinity is not absurd, and understanding it means understanding the colossal errors of judgment made recently by the U.S. president and secretary of state.
Governor Romney backed ungracefully into the truth when he complained about the 47 percent and all those embarrassing apologies: Democrats, and especially the president, have systematically cultivated an entitlement mentality and sought to expand it to the tipping point that ensures endless political dominance. Muslims feel entitled, too, and that is why appeasement does not work.
It's not just that Muslims prefer strong horses to weak ones, as Osama bin Laden put it. They feel entitled to the double standards that so irk us, and they do not feel the least gratitude when we apologize for insults to Mohammed or send them money to calm them down. On the contrary, our apologies and our money merely feed their sense of entitlement.
To apologize or otherwise show respect to Islamists is like giving a welfare recipient more money. The money makes the recipient feel more entitled, not less. The more money we give, the less gratitude we receive. True charity should not look for gratitude anyway.
It is rare for anyone to show less understanding of other people than the president and secretary of state showed on that ad on Pakistan television. Our delusional, practically imbecilic leaders said that the United States government did not have anything to do with the notorious video and seemed to think that saying so would somehow mollify the enraged masses. They say this over and over again, and the masses just become more and more enraged.
Apparently, our powerful imbeciles have not heard a word the Islamofascists are saying. They are not saying that the United States government made the video; they would simply prefer that the United States government should cut the filmmakers into little pieces and feed them to unclean beasts. So the imbeciles say something they think will please the Islamofascists, but the Islamofascists hear what they are saying as a refusal of their demands, not as sympathy for their injuries. The Islamofascists take what the imbeciles are saying as an insult: we pretend to be sympathetic, but we don't do what they want.
The Islamofascists hear the imbeciles say that the video is vile and disgusting, and the Islamofascists take that as confirmation that the imbeciles are shirking their duty to punish the filmmakers. The apology is a self-indictment in the eyes of the Islamofascists. So the president goes on and on apologizing -- that is, self-indicting -- and the hatred of the Muslim world goes on and on in step.
The same thing has bedeviled American policy on the Palestinians for years. We say that we want to be an "honest broker" between Palestinians and Israelis, but until we elect a monster to the presidency, Palestinians will see Americans as people who love Jews and merely pretend to care about Palestinians. They hate us more for pretending that we like them than they would if we just said that we can never respect people who hate Jews so much that they will blow themselves up if it means killing a Jew. Same for people who cheer when passenger jets fly into our skyscrapers.
No serious person could believe that Hillary Clinton is truly offended by the Innocence of Muslims video. Obama may be a different story, but surely the liberal establishment is not offended when Mohammed is called a vicious man and a pedophile. They know quite well that he was both. They are upset because they see insanely enraged Muslims and identify with their insane rage.
A woman once became furiously angry at me because I stepped back so that she could get into a bus ahead of me.
It's hard to see a difference between the insane rage liberals show at the most innocuous statements or situations and the insane rage of Muslims who will stand in tear-gassed streets to throw rocks because one in ten zillion videos is said to have maligned Mohammed. We all saw Madonna praise Obama for being a Muslim and demand that we vote for him because he champions same-sex marriage. You will never convince me that they are not all nuts, and pretty much the same nut: Madonna, Obama, Clinton, and the Libyans who flew the black flag of al-Qaeda over our embassy.
