Steyn Quote D'Jour

Why do radical imams seek to convert young Canadian, British and even American men and women in their late teens and twenties? Because they understand that when you raise a generation in the great wobbling blancmange of Deval Patrick cultural relativism – nothing is any better or any worse than anything else; if people are “mean and nasty” to us, it’s only because we didn’t sing enough Barney the Dinosaur songs at them – in such a world a certain percentage of its youth will have a great gaping hole where their sense of identity should be. And into that hole you can pour something fierce and primal and implacable
Or, to return to a point made yesterday, for all the talk of how fighting jihadism only makes more jihadis, it's modern liberalism, in all its shoulder-shrugging, post-modern glory, that seems to be creating actual jihadists.
