How the left embraced muslim murderers

The Anchoress has a good post on the "is Islam the enemy" debate raging in parts of the blogworld. She has a quote which needs to be repeated:
One of the great ironies of the post-9/11 period is that while violent Islamic jihadists attacked this country, there is a constantly growing network — both organized and unorganized — of in-place apologists at virtually every level of society all ready to defend them. Criticize jihadists, and people on the left will call you a racist. An Islamophobe. A bigot. I have seen this too many times to count, and the reason I call it ironic is that before 9/11, feminists routinely criticized the veil. Gay activists did not hesitate to condemn Islamic homophobia. Atheists condemned Islam the same way they condemned Christianity. After 9/11, the PC crowd suddenly included a group which they’d previously neglected, and it seemed to me that the 9/11 attacks helped the image of radical Muslims with the left in this country. And in most newspapers, and on many campuses.

Killing Americans will do that for you. The left will embrace you and make you one of their pet causes. There's nothing the Hate-America-first crowd loves more than folks who join the Kill-Americans crowd.
