The most cowardly people are Muslim progressives, reformers, liberals, SJWs, etc. They are absolutely nothing without the cultural backing that affirms their stupid opinions on Islam and life in general.
If the most powerful state and culture in the world weren’t liberal, secular, feminist, etc., they would have nothing to stand on. Most of them probably wouldn’t even bother with their causes because there wouldn’t be any money, power, and influence to gain from them, or they wouldn’t have been indoctrinated by those state institutions and cultural structures to begin with.
On many occasions, like-minded friends, colleagues, and I have tried to engage with them on an intellectual basis, in good faith. Most of them just run away, tail betwixt legs, as soon as they realize that their usual cliches aren’t going to cut the mustard.
Others double down on their bullying tactics. Appeals to authority appeal to emotion, and other fallacies spew from them like an overflowing toilet bowl clogged by its own self-righteous indignation. “HOW DARE YOU,” is their common refrain.
Then there are the dishonest interlocutors who play dumb, move the goalposts, hack at strawmen, change the subject, concoct false analogies, and use every other tactic they can to avoid confronting the devastating challenges made to their moronic views.
All this is ironic because these individuals also fancy themselves so brave, so counter-culture, so free-thinking, so enlightened, so intelligent. Yeah, you’re really courageous for parroting all the central doctrines of liberal secularism, the most powerful humanly force in the world today. You deserve a medal!
In reality, their façade comes crashing down with the softest breeze. At which point they cry for mommy, i.e., the muscular power of the state and cultural pressure, reporting you to Facebook, reporting you to state authorities, trying to get you in trouble elsewhere, etc.
Pathetic losers the whole lot.
