Islam enjoys a large and influential ally among non-Muslims: a new generation of “Useful Idiots” following the one that Lenin identified living in liberal democracies who furthered the work of communism. This new generation of Useful Idiots also lives in liberal democracies, but serves the cause of what is in fact a fascist type of totalitarian ideology.
Useful Idiots are naïve, they are foolish, they are ignorant of facts, they are unrealistically idealistic, they are dreamers and they are wilfully in denial or deceptive. A fair few of them hail from the ranks of the chronically unhappy. These are anarchists, aspiring revolutionaries, neurotics who are at war with life, the disaffected alienated from government and corporations and any and all institutions of society. But the Useful Idiot can also be a billionaire, a movie star, an academic of renown, a politician, or from any other segment of the population.
Arguably, the most dangerous variant of the Useful Idiot is the “Politically Correct.” He is the master practitioner of euphemism, hedging, doubletalk, and outright deception.
The Useful Idiot derives satisfaction from being anti-establishment to the extent of being prepared to see the destruction of his own culture. He finds perverse gratification in aiding the forces that aim to dismantle an existing order, whatever it may be: an order he neither approves of nor feels he belongs to.
The Useful Idiot is conflicted and dishonest. He fails to look inside himself and discover the causes of his own problems and unhappiness while he readily enlists himself in causes that validate his distorted perception. Why would a Useful Idiot be so keen to attribute blame to his own culture while being so blind to the faults of another – especially one which seeks to invade and overturn his own? Or so prepared to be “tolerant” and “non-judgmental” about a culture which has not the slightest interest in reciprocating these Western values?
Understandably, it is easier to blame others and the outside world than to examine oneself with an eye to self-discovery and self-improvement. Furthermore, criticizing and complaining—liberal practices of the Useful Idiot—require little talent and energy. The Useful Idiot is a great armchair philosopher with his feet in the air.
The Useful Idiot is not the same as a person who honestly has a different point of view. A society without honest and open differences of views is a dead society. Critical, different and fresh ideas are the life blood of a living society—the very anathema of autocracies where the official position is sacrosanct.
Even a “normal” person spends a great deal more energy aiming to fix things out there than working to overcome his own flaws and shortcomings, or contribute positively to the larger society. People don’t like to take stock of what they are doing or not doing that is responsible for the conditions of which they disapprove.
But the Useful Idiot takes things much farther. He is a master practitioner of scapegoating. He assigns blame to others while absolving himself of responsibility. And by living a distorted life, he contributes to the ills of society.
The Useful Idiot may engage in wilful misinformation and deception when it suits him. Terms such as “Moderate Islam,” or “Radical Islam,” for instance, are contributions of the Useful Idiot. These terms do not even exist in the native parlance of Islam.
Islam, by its very nature and according to its charter—the Koran—is a radical political movement. It is the Useful Idiot who sanitizes Islam and misguides the populace by saying that the “real Islam” constitutes the main body of the religion; and, that this main body is non-political and moderate. [See separate article on this site titled “Official Islam.”] By contrast, “Political Islam” is a term very correctly used by Counter-Jihad warriors such as Bill Warner. It underscores the fact that 80% of the content of Islamic doctrine is pure totalitarian politics.
“Moderate Islam” is a concept which Useful Idiots would like to believe in very much, even though all it means is Muslims who for the time being are not following the hateful and violent incitements in the Koran and Hadiths.
Regrettably, a large segment of the population goes along with these nonsensical euphemisms depicting Islam because it wants to believe “anything for a quiet life.” It is less threatening to believe that only a hijacked small segment of Islam is radical or politically driven and that the main body of Islam is indeed moderate and non-political.
But Islam is political to the core. In Islam the mosque and State are one and the same—the mosque is the State. This arrangement goes back to the days of Muhammad himself. Islam is also radical in the extreme. Even the “moderate” Islam is radical in its beliefs as well as its deeds. Muslims believe that all non-Muslims, bar none, are hellfire bound and well deserve being maltreated compared to believers.
No radical barbaric act of depravity is unthinkable for devout Muslims in dealing with others. They have destroyed precious antiquities such as the 1400 year old statues of Buddha at Bamiyan (in 2001), and much older cultural artefacts from ancient Assyria (ISIS in 2015), levelled sacred monuments of other religions, and bulldozed or vandalized the cemeteries of non-Muslims, including Australian war graves in Libya.
Muslims are radical even in their intrafaith dealings. Various sects and sub-sects pronounce other sects and sub-sects as heretics worthy of death. Women are treated as chattels, deprived of many rights. In strict sharia countries, hands are chopped for stealing; sexual violation is punished by stoning (overwhelmingly of women); and much more. Sharia laws and punishments – where the prescriptions are literally applied – are a disgusting reversal to the Bronze Age. Why on earth do Useful Idiots keep making excuses for Islam, which embodies these at its core?
The “moderate” mainstream of Islam has been genocidal from inception. Their own historians record that Ali, the first imam of the Shiites and the son-in-law of Muhammad, with the help of another man, beheaded 700 Jewish men in the presence of the Prophet himself. The Prophet of Allah and his disciples took the murdered men’s women and children in slavery. Muslims have been, and continue to be, the most vicious and shameless practitioner of slavery. The slave trade, even today, is a thriving business in some Islamic lands where wealthy, perverted sheiks purchase children of the poor from traffickers for their sadistic gratification.
Muslims are taught deception and lying in the Koran itself—something that Muhammad practised during his life whenever he found it expedient. Successive Islamic rulers and leaders have done the same. Khomeini, the founder of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, for instance, rallied the people under the banner of democracy. All along his support for democracy was not a commitment of an honest man, but a ruse. As soon as he gathered the reins of power, Khomeini went after the Useful Idiots of his time with vengeance. These best children of Iran, having been thoroughly deceived and used by the crafty phony populist-religionist, had to flee the country to avoid the fate of tens of thousands who were imprisoned or executed by the double-crossing imam.
Four decades after the tragic Islamic Revolution of 1979, the suffocating rule of Islam casts a death-bearing and economically destructive pall over Iranians. A proud people with enviable heritage is being deliberately purged of its sense of identity and forced to think and behave like barbarians. Iranians who had previously treated women with equality, for instance, have seen them reduced by the stone-age clergy to sub-human status. Any attempt by the women of Iran to counter the misogynist rule of Muhammad’s mullahs is mercilessly suppressed. Women are beaten, imprisoned, raped and killed just as men are slaughtered without due process or mercy. And the regime uses torture.
One of the silliest and logically absurd arguments of Useful Idiots is the claim that Western criticism of Islam creates more terrorists. But Useful idiots also say that Islam is not terrorist, only “lone wolves.” Go figure!
The lesson is clear. Beware of the Useful Idiots who live in liberal democracies. Knowingly or unknowingly, they serve as the greatest volunteer and effective soldiers of Islam. They pave the way for the advancement of Islam and they will assuredly be among the very first victims of Islam if – God forbid – it assumes power.
They abound in the mainstream media, on Twitter and Facebook, at your workplaces, school boards, and particularly amongst elected officials.
The Useful Idiot can be cured, but only by facing honestly up to facts and having and applying moral clarity.
A list of the most useful idiots might be helpful. In Australia we could start with Tony Jones, Sarah Ferguson, Leigh Sales, plenty more ABC “journalists,” Mike Carlton, Andrew O’Keefe, Paul Syvret (Courier Mail), and of course ALL of the execrable Greens.
