Backyard Conservative: Hirsi Ali Speaks Up

Anne of Backyard Conservative made it over to hear Hirsi Ali speak. I wish I could have been there too. Thanks to Anne for a long post about Hirsi Ali's speech.
Q.Why do Leftists ally themselves with jihadists?

A. They confuse faith with race. People on the Left fought for blacks, and present Islam as race, so those who criticize are called racists and Islamophobic, and they have grown up with multiculturalism which does not make judgements about culture, so they view all cultures as equal. She finds this very curious, to suggest that a culture which champions life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness should be viewed on the same level as a dogmatic culture incapable of self-reflection.
