Sexist Racist Hate Group Exposed

Yeah, I’m talking about al-Qaeda:

Back in 1949, Sayyid Qutb, the ideological father of al-Qaeda, spent the better part of the year studying education in Greely, Colorado. Greely, at the time, was the kind of town you’d expect neo-fundamentalists to approve of: its puritanical city government, notably, had outlawed booze.
But it wasn’t conservative enough for Mr Qutb. In his memoirs, The America I Have Seen: In the Scale of Human Values, which were published in the Egyptian journal al-Risala in 1951, Mr Qutb railed against what he saw. “The American girl,” one passage reads, “is well acquainted with her body’s seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face, in the expressive eyes, and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs – and she shows all this and does not hide it.”
He also hated jazz – “music”, he explained, “that the Negroes invented to satisfy their primitive inclinations, as well as their desire to be noisy on the one hand and to excite bestial tendencies on the other.”
It seems to me that Mr Qutb had issues with sexuality that transcended the purely ideological. . . .

Read the whole thing. Strange how those of us in favor of blasting violent Islamic extremism out of existence are the ones who constantly have to defend ourselves against accusations of “hate.”
