What has happened to the left?

You’d think the left would be loud and forceful in its vilification of Islam – it’s a barbaric religion that oppresses women, kills gays, kills atheists, etc. Instead you’ll find a perfunctory comment in passing – yes, we disapprove of all that – only to move on to a vigorous vilification of America, Israel, and Western Civilization. What has happened to the left? Here I discuss how the far left has influenced Kerry's campaign and I review a book that explains how the left has disintegrated into Islamist apologists and/or enablers.
