I asked a politically minded guy I know the question in the title of this post. My question specifically was…
“Why do democrats/liberals/lefties seem to support or inadvertently appease all forms of totalitarianism ideology such as Marxism and Communism and Islam? Is it because they have a Utopian ideology/desire that is in itself totalitarian?”
And my question was based on this portion of this article…
“The partisan divide on issues related to Arabs and Muslims has become disturbingly wide. For example, in a recent poll, Zogby International asked American voters whether they had favourable or unfavourable attitudes toward Arabs and Muslims. The results were shocking.
Attitudes towards Arabs: Democrats – 57 per cent favourable, 30 per cent unfavourable; Republicans – 28 per cent favourable, 66 per cent unfavourable. Attitudes towards Muslims: Democrats – 54 per cent favourable, 34 per cent unfavourable; Republicans – 12 per cent favourable, 85 per cent unfavourable.
When we ask Americans, in separate questions, whether they “know enough about Islam and Muslims (or Arab countries and people) or need to know more”, among Democrats, 68 per cent say they would “like to know more” about Islam, with 80 per cent wanting “to know more” about the Arab world. In answer to the same questions, 71 per cent and 58 per cent of Republicans say they “know enough” and “don’t want to learn more”.
I was sent these pages of The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth, and Power by Melanie Phillips. he said it would help me understand the answers to my question and it surely did. I hope these pages also help you.
