The Enemy At Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility by Dinesh D'Souza

By Dinesh D'Souza

From THE ENEMY AT HOME:

“In this booklet I make a declare that would appear startling on the outset. The cultural left during this state is liable for inflicting September 11. … In faulting the cultural left, it's not that i am making the absurd accusation that this team blew up the area exchange middle and the Pentagon. i'm announcing that the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the nonprofit quarter, and the colleges are the first reason behind the volcano of anger towards the USA that's erupting from the Islamic global. The Muslims who conducted the Sep 11 assaults have been the fabricated from this visceral rage—some of it in line with valid matters, a few of it in line with wrongful prejudice, yet it all fueled and inspired by way of the cultural left. therefore with out the cultural left, September 11 do not have happened.

“I become aware of that it is a robust cost, one who nobody has made ahead of. however it is a ignored point of the 9-11 debate, and it's severe to knowing the present controversy over the ‘war opposed to terrorism.’ … I intend to teach that the left has actively fostered the serious hatred of the United States that has ended in a number of assaults similar to 11th of September. If i'm correct, then no warfare opposed to terrorism will be successfully fought utilizing the left-wing premises which are now authorised doctrine between mainstream liberals and Democrats.”

Whenever Muslims cost that the warfare on terror is known as a conflict opposed to Islam, americans hasten to guarantee them they're wrong.  but as Dinesh D’Souza argues during this strong and well timed polemic, there fairly is a struggle opposed to Islam.  purely this battle isn't being waged via Christian conservatives bent on an ethical campaign to impose democracy out of the country yet via the yankee cultural left, which for years has been vigorously exporting its family struggle opposed to faith and conventional morality to the remainder of the world.

D’Souza contends that the cultural left is liable for September 11 in methods: by means of fostering a decadent and wicked American tradition that angers and repulses different societies—especially conventional and spiritual ones— and via selling, at domestic and overseas, an anti-American perspective that blames the USA for all of the difficulties of the world. 

Islamic anti-Americanism isn't really simply a response to U.S. international coverage yet can also be rooted in a revulsion opposed to what Muslims understand to be the atheism and ethical depravity of yank renowned culture.  Muslims and different conventional humans all over the world allege that secular American values are being imposed on their societies and that those values undermine non secular trust, weaken the conventional kin, and corrupt the innocence of youngsters. however it isn't “America” that's doing this to them, it's the American cultural left. What conventional societies contemplate repulsive and immoral, the cultural left considers innovative and liberating.

Taking factor with these at the correct who communicate of a “clash of civilizations,” D’Souza argues that the conflict on terror is mostly a struggle for the hearts and minds of conventional Muslims—and conventional peoples everywhere.  the single solution to win the fight with radical Islam is to persuade conventional Muslims that the USA is on their facet.

We are acquainted with taking into account the warfare on terror and the tradition warfare as exact and separate struggles. D’Souza exhibits that they're quite one and the same.  Conservatives needs to realize that the left is now allied with the Islamic radicals in a mixed attempt to defeat Bush’s warfare on terror. a complete new method is as a result had to struggle either wars.   “In order to defeat the Islamic radicals abroad,” D’Souza writes, “we needs to defeat the enemy at home.”
