Reader comment on item: This Time, the Far-Left Surge Might Succeed

Dr Pipes you wrote,

>As financial theories at the heart of Marxism-Leninism collapsed, identity politics took their place. Culture replaced economics. Marcuse and Gramsci replaced Marx and Lenin; Repressive Tolerance replaced Das Kapital. Ethnicity replaced the class structure. Transgender rights replaced workers' rights. White privilege replaced the bourgeoisie. Racism replaced imperialism. Palestinian victims replaced the Cuban paradise. Taking the knee replaced black power fists. Immigrants replaced the Third World. Safe spaces replaced sex. Local foods replaced drugs. Pride parades replaced rock 'n roll.

I would add and Hare Krishna replaced by the bizarre admiration of Islam, a religion that promotes hate of non Muslims, misogyny, Antisemitism, female genital mutilation, slavery, child marriages, holy wars, anti-reason and anti-democracy and anyone who is critical of Islam is called "Islamophobe." And when a regressive leftist is asked what is really Islamophobia, you will be told that "Islamophobes" are racist and Nazis but you will never get a definition of Islamophobia that make any sense. This means that the Yazidi women that were abducted raped and enslaved by Muslim terrorists must be Nazis! And when the regressive leftist is reminded that Muslims are not a race and that Muslims believe that anyone who claims that Muhammad was not white should be punished, you will never get an answer.
