I don’t usually post on Sundays, but in honor of the day, allow me to refer you to this excellent piece by Jamie Glazov over at FrontPage Magazine. He notes the connection between the Islamist hatred of Valentine’s Day and the feminist hatred of Valentine’s Day and comes up with what I think are some very sharp observations and explanations.
Here’s some of the meat:
“Valentine’s Day is a “shameful day” for the Muslim world and for the radical Left. It is shameful because private love is considered obscene, since it threatens the highest of values: the need for a totalitarian order to attract the complete and undivided attention, allegiance and veneration of every citizen. Love serves as the most lethal threat to the tyrants seeking to build Sharia and a classless utopia on earth, and so these tyrants yearn for the annihilation of every ingredient in man that smacks of anything that it means to be human.”
But really, read the whole thing here, it’s well worth it.
