Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, March 17, 2019

David Atkins: The difference between far-right Christian extremism and Islamist extremism is a very thin line drenched in conservative violence. Both despise modernity, feminism, LGBTQ rights, secularism, urbanity, and education. Both love guns, militarism, theocracy, expansionism, and a return to the "good old days." They're essentially two sides of the same hyper-conservative coin.

If a terrorist were to claim that their attack was intended to "add momentum to the pendulum swings of history, further destabilizing and polarizing Western society," you might be excused in thinking the perpetrator was an Islamic extremist. But these are the words of a white supremacist and crusader ...

These two hateful ideologies -- white supremacy and radical Islamism -- may regard themselves as polar opposites, but their worldviews resemble the other. Both are paranoid, exhibit a toxic blend of superiority and inferiority toward the other, are scornful of less extreme members of their own communities, and are nostalgic for an imagined past of cultural dominance ...

A contempt for "Western" modernity is another trait shared by Islamists and the Christian far right. This disdain for many aspects of modernity translates into an overwhelming yearning for a supposedly more glorious and pure past and a nostalgia for bygone imperial greatness when the world was at their command -- for the days of [Western] empire or Islamic caliphates.

The Dotard is stinking up the White House because apologists for child rape elected him.
