The Left and Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Reason #1,259 Why We Don't Need the CBC

VERY LATE UPDATE: There's a dude/dudette from Somerville, Massachusetts who keeps coming back to this post, almost on a daily basis. Who are you?  Weigh in so I can say hi to you. If you like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, you're a friend of mine. If you hate the MSM, you're a friend of mine. Don't be afraid.

Here's a forty-five minute segment of Q, a CBC radio program hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, a Muslim by birth, a Canadian by birth, an Iranian by ancestry. He's as quintessentially Canadian as they come.

Perhaps the most influential force in his life, as evidenced by his radio and TV roles, may be the Torontonians' uber-liberal apologist mindset that makes him a natural for the CBC.

As usual, Hirsi Ali is brilliant and handles his asinine questions with finesse. Around the 40 minute mark I'd be more inclined to loose my cool and start shouting at him, if I hadn't done already, but Hirsi Ali adeptly, calmly skewers him.

Ghomeshi gives us a peek into the cultural relativist's mindset.  It illustrates the left's existential panic. To think that a member of one of those specially designated victim groups, so carefully indoctrinated, so meticulously groomed, would actually begin to speak for herself, and when she speaks it is the language of the right she uses.  I mean, she works for The American Enterprise Institute!  OH THE STARK RAVING HORRORS!!!!

Really, its funny.  She gets away with saying things that the left can barely utter without choking and blushing; things which, when the right puts them out there for public debate, are roundly and hysterically expunged from the lexicon.

Worst part of it, Ghomeshi is one of the milder of the CBC multi-culti lapdogs. Listen to it.

Thank you for posting this, Louise. Coincidentally, an L.A. columnist named Amy Alkon just posted this other interview of her. As I said there, what Hirsi Ali is saying is of course true for anyone who has any semblance of Common Sense. But her views are diametrically opposed to the Left's "great" narrative that all cultures are absolutely equal. But dare question why cultures that support honour killing and female genital mutilation are equal to ours and you are deemed a bigot by the Left.

Which, by the way, raises an interesting side point: I fully agree with Dennis Prager's theory that most people who identify themselves to be "on the Left" or "liberals" actually are NOT. For if you were to discuss individual issues like this with them, they would adamantly disagree with the official Leftist position.

Therefore, what percentage of our population are actually truly Leftists? If it's more than 2 - 3% I'd be shocked. Will historians 100 Years from now look back and wonder how such a tiny minority of the population was able to seize control of the reins of power (political, academic, media) and steer it in such a destructive direction?

No need to wonder. It's through the indoctrination meted out at our universities via the social sciences and humanities faculties.

Louise, foolish moi, I didn't realize you have a blog. Thanks very much for posting this Ali thread and video. (I also remember her deft putdown of the arrogant ignoramus Avi Lewis.) Ali is an awesome lady!

You're now bookmarked and I'll be stopping by regularly. (I promise to not annoy, as I apparently did at The Torch. :-)
