Are Leftism and Islamism cut from the same cloth? Zainab Al-Suwaij (aicongress.org), Founder and Executive Director of the American-Islamic Congress, joins us today to discuss the current state of Islam in the West. She looks at the battle between the religion of Islam and the political Islamists that want to radicalize young men for violence. She also points out that while leftists and Islamists have almost no values in common, they seem to be fellow travelers ideologically when it comes to gaining and holding on to power. In order to talk honestly about all of this, we need to tune out the leftist calls of Islamophobia and focus on reality.
Far left progressives constantly contradict themselves. They stand up for behavior committed by those on the left but they always condemn the same behavior committed by those on the right. Why is that? Thomas Cargill (www.independent.org), Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute is here to answer that. In short, it's all about gaining power and keeping it. They target the education system and they perpetuate cancel culture. That leads to totalitarianism which then leads to power. Mr. Cargill also shares some uncomfortable truths about the ideological origins of Planned Parenthood and how that ideology fit very nicely with progressivism.
