What is it with lefties and their insistence on bringing white-bread style democracy to everyone?
Why do they not realize that deep down this is insulting to Islamic nations, which are founded in the Koran, and not in some cheap notion of universal egalitarianism. Could it be because DWL leftist do-gooderism is motivated by such a powerful sense of moral superiority, that people like the NYT simply just can't help themselves? They know what's best for the world's 1.4 billion Muslims.
Take a look at the video below, featuring New York Times HBD-denier in chief (tricky) Nick Kristof, shot while he was last week in Bahrain, a sand-dune nowhere sprung from global irrelevance and made fabulously wealthy by Western innovation and intervention in general, and American goodwill and naivieté in particular (the U.S. Navy's fifth fleet is based there).
At another anti-secular, anti-Western, pro-Sharia popular protest that poor Nick thinks represents an "Arab Spring" that is going to turn the nations of the (pedophile) Mohammed-following practitioners of the religion of peace into suburban Connecticut overnight, Bahrain's Islamic youth throw stones at US-financed and supplied riot police, resulting in a barrage of tear gas raining down upon their nappy (and for the women, veiled) heads.
In his Big Gay Al accent that can only make you wonder how he possibly managed to impregnate the mother of his 16 year old son, Times uber-lefty Kristof explains that throwing stones by Muslim youth is "A common act that hugely undermines their cause."
I submit, Nick, that it's the other way around: the Islamists' cause is defined by their rock-throwing, not undermined by it. Haven't you been paying attention?
With mainstream Western media represented by spineless little eunuchs like Nicholas Kristof, I give Western Civilization another decade, max.
