It's interesting to note that for all the Left's talk of tolerance, for many of them support for multiculturalism seems predicated on the idea that foreigners are actually just like us, but they're just, y'know, confused.
Nowhere is this tendency more apparent than when the subject is Islam. Large parts of our alleged Liberal elite seem determined to believe, in the teeth of all the evidence, that Islam is a form of social democratic thought, except for some mystical baggage. Needless to say, the exploding ones try their hardest to encourage the confusion by adopting the language of freedom, even while agitating against it. Add in an MSM that seems to see its mssion as preventing any useful information leaking out, and it's no wonder why so many people buy the ROP dummy. That's why the Net is so important - it means people can get the message out about what they really mean. Read this excellent post over at MCB Watch, and wonder why even a supposedly hard hitting Panorama program shies away from telling the whole truth.
