Daily Kos Calls Conservatives "American Taliban"

TEA Party grandmas

Taliban jihadists

If the Left want to be taken even remotely seriously, they really need to get a grip on reality. The founder of Daily Kos says American Conservatives are just like the extreme Muslim jihadists, the Taliban. He calls Conservatives the “American Taliban.”

The Taliban, who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, want a theocracy of Sharia law. Here’s a partial list of things they prohibit:

Employment, education and sports for women; dancing; clapping during sports events; kite flying; depictions of living things, whether drawings, paintings, photographs, statues, stuffed animals, or dolls; pork, pig, pig oil; anything made from human hair; satellite dishes, cinematography, and equipment that produces the joy of music; pool tables, chess; masks; alcohol; tapes, computers, VCRs, television; anything that propagates sex and is full of music; wine; lobster; nail polish; firecrackers; statues; sewing catalogs; pictures; Christmas cards.

Punishment for violations is severe. Theft is punished by the amputation of a hand; rape and murder by public execution; and married adulterers were stoned to death. In Kabul, punishments including executions were carried out in front of crowds in the city’s soccer stadium.
And this is what Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos and author of the book, American Talibanwrote in an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle,  September 27, 2010, claiming that Conservatives are just like the Afghan Taliban:

I oppose regressive Islamic fundamentalists for the same reason I oppose regressive conservatives – because whether it’s their violent tendencies, views on women and gays, hostility to science and knowledge, or fear of pop culture, they’re cut from the same ideological cloth.
Like their reactionary counterparts in the Middle East, the American Taliban fetishize guns and weaponry. In fact, President Obama’s election has fueled an ammunition shortage that persists to this day. As myriad ideologically motivated violent incidents attest (such as the assassination of Dr. George Tiller, or the plane flown into the side of an IRS building in Dallas), they aren’t afraid to cross that line. Heck, you have a top-tier Republican Senate candidate – Sharron Angle in Nevada – declaring that if Republicans don’t take control of Congress, then “Second Amendment remedies” will be necessary. She’s talking about revolution.
Why the anger and violence? Because the American Taliban seek to impose their rigid mores on a country that is generally uninterested. Most Americans value a woman’s equal role in society. They value the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, including freedom of (and from) religion. They value open discussion and honest debate and our freedom to dissent. They value tolerance. And even where they fall short, such as marriage equality, they are more squeamish than hateful, and public sentiment is quickly moving the right way.
So when the American Taliban demonize efforts to build a Muslim community center at an old Burlington Coat Factory two blocks from ground zero, that is un-American and speaks to bigotry and intolerance. When they pass around Psalm 109 (“Let his days be few, and let another take his office. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow”) amid much chuckling, that speaks to a violent outlook that is un-American…. When they create an entire alternate reality chock full of conspiracy theories like “Acorn stole the 2008 elections” and “Obama is a socialist Kenyan communist who wants to throw conservatives into Fema-run concentration camps,” well, that disregard for truth and knowledge is un-American.
[…The above are all] reason I do not want American conservatives to win.

Buckle up your seat belts, folks. As we get closer and closer to November 2, the Left will get crazier and crazier…. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

  1. wow i guess this is sort of like if plant life were able to voice an opinion.

     
  2. I am buckled and ready to go. When we take over the House and Senate, I wonder what we will have in store for us then?
    Do you think THEY will spark a revolution? As hypocritical as they are…maybe THEN they will be the ones sparking a revolution which they wouldn’t be able to do if they had succeeded in destroying our second amendment.

     
  3. The best thing to do is to ignore this crazy. He’ll get his very soon, November 2, and then again in November of 2012 when we get rid of Obama and his crazies.

     
  4. It’s the 1st rule of liberalism.
    Always accuse the other side of being what you yourself are.
    The tyranny-loving totalitarian commiedems have far more in common with the camel-scrubbers than any other group in America, which is why many are now referring to the democratic party as the “Party of Allah.”
