The Burgeoning Alliance Between Leftists and Islamists

Chris Adamo 11/24/05

In the wake of the information explosion of recent years, Americans can now find any “version” of the news that they like. Press accounts of the same international events are often unrecognizably altered from each other, with no apparent connection to reality. Thus, alarming occurrences are often distorted in order to prevent their significance from becoming apparent to the public at large.

Yet the resulting false sense of security in which some may then choose to bask can suddenly come crashing down before them, as did the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001.

Still, not long after the attacks, replays of the towers as they collapsed on thousands of terrified occupants were summarily removed from nightly news broadcasts. And any subsequent terrorist atrocities, such as the videotape of the protracted and gruesome beheading of Nick Berg, have been thoroughly censored and essentially banned from broadcast by the liberal media.

Clearly, little has changed among the American left since it ascended to prominence during the Vietnam era. Back then, brutality was not personified by the genocide of the Soviets, the Communist Khmer Rouge and their Killing Fields, nor the wanton slaughter of Vietnamese by the millions in the wake of the U.S. departure from that nation. Rather, it was singularly characterized by Lieutenant William Calley and the My Lai massacre.

Now, to hear it from liberals, 9-11 was little more than a historical fluke to which the best response may well be indifference. Furthermore, the ensuing terror war has been a singular violation of human rights, defined not by the toppling of indescribable tyrants, but by a few terrorist inmates who were forced to play “dog pile” at the hands of some admittedly perverted U.S. prison guards.

Chris Matthews of the MSNBC “news” program “Hardball,” went so far as to claim that the Islamist monsters of al Qaeda are “not evil,” but merely see things from a “different perspective.” And Matthews is not alone. Among the nation’s major networks and liberal news organizations, such inflammatory concepts as “evil” are reserved for President Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, and of course Donald Rumsfeld and Karl Rove
