Yesterday on American Family Radio’s Today’s Issues, anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller argued that progressives are embracing Sharia law in the same way they purportedly venerated Stalinism and Nazism. Geller argued that the Nazi Party was actually a creation of the left, and that liberals now want to impose Sharia law in the same way they backed Nazism. Geller is far from the first person to bizarrely claim that liberals support Sharia law or claim that Nazism is a “far-left” ideology. As we’ve previously noted, fascists in fact see the political left as their archenemy, and “national socialism” denotes an exclusionary, ethnic-supremacist state that rejects racial, cultural and religious diversity.
Geller: I’m concerned with the political side of Islam, the sharia, Islamic law, and the left. The left, the battle has always been individualism versus collectivism, people are confounded by the alliance of the überleft and the stealth jihadists and I don’t think it’s surprising at all. We see that the left always adopts whatever totalitarian ideology there is of the day, if it wasn’t Stalinism it was communism, if it wasn’t communism it was national socialism, which was Nazism it was not a far-right but a far-left ideology. What the attraction is in Islam my feeling is that the sharia, Islamic law, is the most, if it’s into the control of the people if that’s what you’re into, then there is no more effective way to control the people, there is no more effective system of governance than the Sharia.
