Author Blames 9/11 On 'Cultural Left'

Conservative author Dinesh D'Souza has a new book out The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11.

"I am saying that the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the nonprofit sector, and the universities are the primary cause of the volcano of anger toward America that is erupting from the Islamic world," explains D'Souza.
What he means by this is that the secular progressive left during the past few decades, with its focus on promoting and even glorifying (at home and abroad) what most of the world's more traditional societies see as depravity and atheism, has provoked a backlash among traditional, moderate Muslims who see their religious and moral values threatened by an aggressive, immoral, anti-religious crusade.
Apparently they don't hate us for our freedoms--they hate us for the way that we choose to exercise our freedoms.

While D'Souza admits many Muslims irrationally hate Israel and some specific aspects of U.S. foreign policy, he argues that the growing anti-Americanism abroad is directed more at the global spread of our debased pop culture and the leftist political ideas that liberals so proudly defend.
Irrationally? Even moderate Muslims object to American and Israeli policies. Sweden is sexually more libertine than America and yet there has been a curious lack of terrorist incidents in that country. The Islamicists seem content to simply let them go to hell. I am sure that they think that America is decadent and depraved. Their women wear chadors and ours prance about suggestively dressed. Also one wonders how they feel about the political and cultural Right and their constant Muslim bashing?

Radical Muslims are simply fighting back with violence. "Thus without the cultural left, 9/11 would not have happened. I realize that this is a strong charge," D'Souza writes, "one that no one has made before."
Perhaps because the charge is idiotic.

The charge is idioitic. The plain and simple truth is exactly what Eustace Mullins says. We are being set-up by the Rothschild zionists to fight each other. Christian vs. Muslim. 1 billion vs. 1 billion leaving 10 million zionists to overlord the rest of us.

I really am surprised Mullins isn't taken more seriously. He hung around all the right elites, he worked and researched for years in the Library of Congress, he was good friends with Ezra Pound, etc.

The charge is idiotic, but it's true. The whole goal of the neocon Bolsheviks is to start a war between 1 billion Muslims and 1 billion Christians. This has always been their goal. If you go back and read Martin Luther in the 1500's, you'll be shocked at how relevant it is to today. Unfortunately, because it examines Jews, it is immediately discredited, which is ridiculous. In any case, we all know who controls and owns the Western media.
