As has become normal, CNN presents us with yet another annual “Hajj” documentary. Are the lefties at CNN trying to convert us? More likely they are just displaying the usual dhimmi behaviour. The whole crew are there. Happy converts, compliant Muslim women, ooh-ing and aah-ing Western reporters wearing headscarves asking patsy questions.
Notice when CNN does anything with Catholics, the questions abound about homosexual priests, child abuse, the role of women.Not even Pope John Paul’s funeral commentary was spared this sort of grilling. Catholicism of course is a cornerstone of Western civilization, something the left is trying to deconstruct as fast as possible.
Not once is anyone asked how they feel about women being excluded from mosques or the from the kabaa ( housing a meteorite, dating from when pre-Islam was a religion that worshipped star and moon gods). Or how the “peaceful” religion deals with suicide bombers and so on.
The left is fascinated by militant Islam for sinister reasons. Firstly, Islam gives vent to their fantasies of control, domination and being dominated that are at the heart of their illiberality. Secondly, Islam is anti-capitalist and anti-Western which dovetails into the secret and open loathing they feel for the capital and social markets. Thirdly, Islam appeals to counter the agnostic and atheist voids that the hard left often have in their materialist approach to life. Lastly, since the left is motivated above all by anti-Americanism, Islam’s pathological hatred of the USA fit’s quite nicely, thank you very much.
Pity CNN did not take time off to show these Iranian adherents of the “religion of peace” chanting away in religious rapture during this years Hajj in Mecca.
