Kirsten Powers slams libs slurring Ayaan Hirsi Ali as an ‘Islamophobe’!/kirstenpowers10/status/247719285538054146

The vile Left continued its back-scratching of murderous Islamists today.

After a week of encouraging the chilling of free speech about Islam, liberals slammed courageous, outspoken freedom-fighter Ayaan Hirsi Ali for daring to question the “religion of peace” narrative in her must read Newsweek column on “Muslim rage.”

The Muslim men and women (and yes, there are plenty of women) who support—whether actively or passively—the idea that blasphemers deserve to suffer punishment are not a fringe group. On the contrary, they represent the mainstream of contemporary Islam. Of course, there are many Muslims and ex-Muslims, in Libya, Egypt, and elsewhere, who unambiguously condemn not only the murders and riots, as well as the idea that dissenters from this mainstream should be punished. But they are marginalized and all too often indirectly held responsible for the very provocation. In the age of globalization and mass immigration, such intolerance has crossed borders and become the defining characteristic of Islam.

Read the whole thing.

If anyone’s qualified to critique “Muslim rage” from a position of absolute moral authority, it’s Hirsi Ali. A former Islamic fundamentalist, she speaks from personal experience when she describes deadly fanaticism and atrocities like female genital mutilation. And after working to expose Muslim subjugation of women, violent threats on her life forced her into hiding.

But that experience makes no difference to the most despicable actors on the Left. Moral compasses spinning revoltingly out of control, Twitterers smeared Hirsi Ali as a “bigot” and “Islamophobe” for her important piece on the bloody, chaotic Arab Spring and ongoing embassy attacks.

Wonder how many snarking about #MuslimRage know Ayaan Hirsi Ali had to endure death threats due to screenplay protesting abuse of women

More importantly, how many care?

Liberal Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers was disgusted.

Lefties: Calling people who have been persecuted by Islamists — Coptic Christians, Ayaan Ali Hirsi — "Islamaphobes" is really sick.

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 17, 2012

The lefties seem to think Ayaan Hirsi Ali shld be a good girl and stop criticizing the poor Islamists who want to kill her

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 17, 2012

Not. Gonna. Happen. Like Powers, Ayaan Hirsi Ali knows how to fight like a girl. And she’s not going to stop to make progressives a sammich.

Whither the real liberals? When did it become liberal to whine about a woman (Hirsi Ali) w/a fatwa on her life criticizing her persecutors??

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 17, 2012

With that, Powers torched any remaining vestiges of the Left’s “For the Women” card.

@davidsess So even though she grew up as a Muslim u think she doesn't have enough expertise to discuss this issue? If only she had a penis.

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 17, 2012

@davidsess The fact that you call it 'hysteria' is strange. Who is hysterical?

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 17, 2012

Here’s a taste of the morally vacant attacks on a woman who’s paid for the extremist tenets of Islam with her own blood and the blood of people she holds dear. Surprise! Max Blumenthal was leading the pack.

Newsweek gives its cover to vile Islamophobic self-promoter Ayaan Hirsi Ali to promote bogus "clash of civilizations"

— Max Blumenthal (@MaxBlumenthal) September 17, 2012

Whose dumbass idea was it to let Ayaan Hirsi Ali explain Muslims to us? Oh, right.

— Matt Duss (@mattduss) September 17, 2012

Wow, @Newsweek is a disgrace. Commission analysis of the ME protests by famed Islamophobe Ayaan Hirsi Ali AND make it the cover? Really?!?!

— sara (@1tsplove) September 17, 2012

First Niall Ferguson’s anti-Obama drivel, and now Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s #Islamophobic rant. Perhaps @Newsweek should change its name to Hackweek

— Teddy Wilson (@txindyjourno) September 17, 2012

So Newsweek profiles anti-#Islam bigot Ayaan Hirsi Ali in their issue, which they call #MuslimRage & want us to read/endorse it? #IGNORANCE

— Qasim Rashid, Esq. (@MuslimIQ) September 17, 2012

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has seemed to be bulletproof because of her compelling life story – but make no mistake; she is a vicious bigot

— Degenerate Gandhi (@Bro_Pair) September 17, 2012

I always thought of Ayaan Hirsi Ali as someone sensible/progressive, but I never actually examined her views. What a bigot.

— Jay Claire (@JayCIaire) September 17, 2012

From a vast number of academics & scholars, @newsweek had to get Hirsi Ali, an ex-muslim-athiest-islamophobe to discuss #Islam #fail

— Hamna (@hamna_) September 17, 2012

@MazMHussain Hirsi Ali is more closed minded n a bigger bigot than the Islamist extremists she protests against!

— Abdul Shakoor (@AbdShakoorkhan) September 17, 2012


— Nader (@DarthNader) September 17, 2012

Others brought Hirsi Ali’s husband, Niall Ferguson, into their attacks.

Niall Ferguson & Ayaan Hirsi Ali are married? Talk about an Islamophobic dynamic duo #MuslimRage

— ماجدة قامة (@majda72) September 17, 2012

Keep it in the family. Niall Ferguson bashes Obama, and his wife Ayaan Hirsi Ali slams all Muslims. Thank you, Newsweek. #MuslimRage

— Ed Husain (@Ed_Husain) September 17, 2012

Nope. No rage there.

Will unhinged, free speech-hating progressives call for the government to silence Hirsi Ali for exercising her freedom of expression?

Here's hoping Ayaan Hirsi Ali doesn't have a parole violation:
