Denial that the attacks of 9/11 happened remains a fringe phenomenon. But insistence that they mean little of consequence is becoming, in parts of the west, the consensus. "The west has been largely unchanged by the menace of Islamist terror," Henry Porter, the columnist, wrote approvingly in The Guardian last week. For Mr Porter: "The radicalisation of Muslim populations in the west is so far Osama [Bin Laden]’s greatest achievement." But this is a big deal. Such a radicalisation was scarcely thinkable five years ago. Why should the eruption of a violent and anti-western movement, with significant support in the world’s most active religion, not change the west?
Porter obviously believes bombs exploding in European capitals is business as usual. That's not surprising, coming from the terminally out-of-touch cocooned rad-lefty rags like the Independent and the Guardian. Of course, Porter is too thickly mummified in the bubble-boy cocoon that enshrouds leftist "Guardians" to recognize his silliness in saying "no problem" and "radicalized Muslim minorities in the west." Obviously his meds make him a Boomer Deadhead.
As Anne Applebaum pointed out in the WaPo yesterday, the remnants of Fleet Street and TUC bombthrowers never stopped hating the US for proving a lie to their socialist nostrums. Now they see the rad Osama Islamists as their allies, demonstrating how completely out of touch these human-fossil journalist-posers can be. If the bearded fascists ever got the chance, these godless hacks would be the first to--LITERALLY---lose their heads!
In the end, losers hate winners, and the international left is chockablock full of losers!
