When folks point out to a committed leftist how awful the USSR was, they say that true socialism would have worked and that the USSR failed because Stalin wasn't a true socialist.
When someone criticizes Red China, they reply that Mao wasn't a true socialist.
When someone criticizes Cuba or Zimbabwe or North Korea or Kampuchea you hear the same thing about Fidel and Mugabe and Kim and Pol Pot.
And so on. As if the only reason these socialist countries were hell-holes was that their leaders had PERVERTED TRUE SOCIALISM.
Which is absurd - total denial.
Our president said the 9/11 attackers were a small band of sorry men who had perverted Islam. We hear this from a lot of folks who argue that the radicals aren't true or good Muslims; they are perverts.
This is no different than the leftists who defend socialism by arguing Stalin and Pol Pot weren't true socialists. IT'S ABSURD. Our president and the liberals running the MSM are just as absurd - and are either in denial about what true Islam really is, or they know and WANT the enemy to win.
Muhammad practiced TRUE ISLAM, and he was no moderate; he was as "radical" as Bin Laden - no more, no less.
REPEAT: Those who emulate Muhammad --- who the liberals call "RADICALS WHO HAVE PERVERTED TRUE ISLAM" are practicing a form of Islam no more perverted than Muhammad's.
Saying the jihadists who committed 9/11 are "not true Muslims" is false, a lie, absurd.
IT'S DENIAL DENIAL DENIAL.
True Islam is what made Afghanistan hell - and IRAN, and it's what's ruining Pakistan and Iraq and every other place its infestation has taken root. And it is what motivates Bin Laden and KSM and Awlaki and the shoebomber and the underwear bomber and the Times Square Bomber.
WANT PEACE AND FREEDOM?
Then you must fight Muhammad's Islam - "TRUE" Islam.
You cannot marginalize the jihado-terrorists within Islam anymore than you can marginalize Muhammad. It's a strategy that is bound to fail.
