A Bolshie Recoils

Sam Harris just got mugged by reality:

But my correspondence with liberals has convinced me that liberalism has grown dangerously out of touch with the realities of our world — specifically with what devout Muslims actually believe about the West, about paradise and about the ultimate ascendance of their faith.

On questions of national security, I am now as wary of my fellow liberals as I am of the religious demagogues on the Christian right.

This may seem like frank acquiescence to the charge that "liberals are soft on terrorism." It is, and they are.

A cult of death is forming in the Muslim world — for reasons that are perfectly explicable in terms of the Islamic doctrines of martyrdom and jihad. The truth is that we are not fighting a "war on terror." We are fighting a pestilential theology and a longing for paradise.


That's quite right, and if Harris' article wakes liberals up to the existential threat posed by Islamofascism and the fact that it ought to be the top priority of this nation to defeat it, I am all for it.

If not, we welcome any and all liberals who are still in touch with reality to the fray. Christopher Hitchens and Ron Silver have been very respectfully treated since joining our ranks in the War on Terror. I'm sure recovering moonbats will be accorded the same respectful welcome for at least as long as we're throttling death cultists together.
