The Young Turks ask, “which political ideology really has the most in common with the tenets of radical Islam and al-Qaeda, the conservative view or the liberal view?” after a Fox “News” guest, Republican strategist Kate Obenshain, accuses liberals of having an “alliance” with radical Muslims. Recently in an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor, Obenshain asserted,
The Muslim radicals are targeting the United States because they hate everything we believe in; freedom, individualism, free markets, the right to be whomever you want to be. There is something about that…I know this is going to raise some alarm bells…but there is something about that that liberals find appealing. The hostility towards freedom.
Obenshain later added,
It is a bizarre alliance and I don’t fully understand it, particularly because of the persecution of women and gays. It’s bizarre, why this political correctness has caused people like Barack Obama to protect…hate.
