One of the more vile racists on Daily Kos goes by the moniker "soysauce." Soysauce spends much of her time reviling the Jewish people, and spreading hatred toward us, through reviling the Jewish state and spreading hatred toward it.
In her most recent post "Palestinian Prisoner on Day 53 of Hunger Strike" she writes:
Khader Adnan, an imprisoned Palestinian activist, has been on a hunger strike for 53 days. He is dying as I write this, and the world stands by.
She claims that Adnan is subject to "harsh interrogation and torture." The truth, of course, is that she really has no idea whether this is true or not. One thing that we do know, although she fails to mention this minor detail, is that this "imprisoned Palestinian activist" is a member of the violently anti-Semitic organization, Islamic Jihad. (And this from a "peace activist" who claims to be an Arab, perhaps Palestinian, Quaker.)
Meanwhile, over at Y-Net we learn:
Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed terrorist group that has killed dozens of Israelis in suicide bombings and other attacks, has vowed to punish Israel if Adnan dies. The group could fire rockets into Israel from its stronghold in the Gaza Strip, where it has recently built up a powerful arsenal of new weapons.
So, on a progressive-left website devoted to electing more and "better" Democrats we have people championing Jihadis. Islamic Jihad is responsible for more than 30 suicide bombings.
These are the kinds of people who are promoted and defended on Daily Kos.
You know, back when George W. Bush was still president and when I was still going to anti-war rallies and phone banking for Democrats, occasionally I would hear where some conservative would accuse the Left of siding with terrorists. Naturally I believed no such thing because it seemed entirely preposterous. Why would progressives who believe in universal human rights side with Jihadis who have no such interests and who are, in fact, seeking the return of the Caliphate and the persecution of gays, women, and Jews in the Middle East?
You can only imagine my surprise when I learned how wrong I really was. The fact of the matter is that there is an element within the progressive movement, including people such as Daily Kos's "soysauce" who do, in fact, side with Jihadis against gays, women, and Jews.
So, was the hunger-striking Mr. Adnan tortured by the Israelis? I certainly hope not, but I do not know and neither does "soysauce." She is simply using his case as a club with which to beat up on the Jewish state in order to help delegitimize that country for the purpose of softening it up for its eventual dissolution or destruction.
In doing so she lies to her audience by suggesting that this prisoner was an "activist." What she does not tell her audience is that the guy is a member of Islamic Jihad, one of the most deadly, racist, and genocidal organizations in the entire Middle East.
This is what the progressive-left is enabling and yet they still expect to be supported by Jewish people. And if we fail to support our own suicide then sometimes they even suggest that we are thereby not worthy of being an American, that "the voter who feels this way is living in the wrong country" and should move to Israel.
The progressive-left has emerged as the most hate-filled, regressive, and racist political movement in the West at this time.
This is a hard truth for many of us to face, but truth it is, like it or not.
