If you got to http://www.dailykos.com/tag/Libya you will see that there are over 100 "diaries" in the past two days alone concerned with the Jihadi attack on American diplomats in Libya.
Do you know what you will not find? Virtually none of the "diaries" condemn the attacks in a straightforward manner. They are using this incident to kick the holy crap out of Mitt Romney, and out of Israel, naturally (despite the fact that Israel had nothing whatsoever to do with the attack) but have virtually nothing to say about the Jihadis who killed the Americans.
This is how morally bankrupt the left has become.
Innocent Americans got slaughtered by radical Islamists and all they can think to do is kick around the Republican presidential candidate and the Jewish state of Israel.
I cannot even begin to describe just how disgraceful this is.
But, I suppose it's not particularly surprising. These are people, after all, who continue to think that the misnamed "Arab Spring" was about the great upwelling of democracy. The truth, of course, is that it was about the great upwelling of radical Islam, but they will never admit that to themselves.
I wonder why?
What is it about the progressive-left that they cannot bring themselves to condemn a rising political movement that targets Jews and gay people for death and that subjugates women?
In a recent comment on another website about this matter I wrote the following:
Well, the truth of the matter, of course, is that the rise of the radical Jihad, which is a genocidal anti-Semitic, misogynistic, and deeply homophobic movement, is the single most significant geo-political development since the fall of the Soviet Union. Country after country in the Middle East has fallen to "political Islam," including most famously Egypt, and the progressive-left turns a blind eye.
In this way, the progressive movement has made of itself an irrelevancy because it no longer stands for anything that could possibly be regarded as "universal human rights."
Your movement has betrayed its very reason to be out of the unacknowledged tension between human rights and multiculturalism.
These concepts are entirely irreconcilable and they represent the fundamental contradiction which has made the progressive movement incoherent.
When your movement chose the multiculturalism thing over universal human rights you, by logical necessity, turned your collective backs on women in the Middle East, gay people in the Middle East, and Jews in the Middle East.
This means that the progressive-left, as a political movement, stands for nothing.
They stand for nothing.
Not a precious thing.
