Pamela Geller the woman whose group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, organized the Muhammad cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas may be the most hated person in America right now. She is certainly the lefts chief villain. And, sad to say, though few conservatives hate her, more than a few have condemned her.
The question is why?
Here are three reasons.
Reason One: The left hates those who confront evil.
The first and most important reason is a rule of life that I wrote about in a recent column explaining the lefts hatred for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: Those who dont fight evil hate those who do.
This is a defining characteristic of the American left. That is why the left loathed President Ronald Reagan for labeling the Soviet Union an evil empire. He judged and confronted Communism, the greatest evil in the world after WW II.
Today, the worlds greatest evil is Islamism (the movement to impose Islam and its Sharia on society). Just as the left loathed anti-communists, it loathes anti-Islamists, chief among them being Netanyahu, the prime minister of the country that the Islamists most hate, the country that most confronts violent Islam and, not coincidentally, the country the international left most hates.
