The young man, by way of verbal admission and the myriad of political statements he proudly wore, was a political progressive.
Islam rising indeed, a representative of a swelling population of leftists who embrace progressive principles yet see Islam as inimical to liberal values and in conflict with American identity. Muslims are neither good nor bad. A diverse and eclectic litany of prominent Islamophobes occupies the left.
These liberal Islamophobes, like Bill Maher and Sam Harrisweaponize atheism as an ideology that not only discredits the spiritual dimensions of Islam but also demonizes it in line with longstanding orientalist, political terms. For these new atheists, Islam is illegitimate because it is a religion, but unlike other religions, is distinctly threatening because it is inherently at odds with liberal values.
These statements flow from the fundamental Islamophobic baseline that Islam is more civilization than religion, and Muslims a homogeneous bloc whose free exercise of religion is a threat.
Trump is peddling these views to a predominantly conservative base, while Maher is pushing it on to a progressive audience. If Trump is the popular mascot of Islamophobia rising from the right, then Maher is his symbolic counterpart on the left.
Just like Trump, the loaded misrepresentations of Islam and condemnation of Muslims spewed by Harris and particularly Maher are reaching millions of leftists and progressives, and, as evidenced by raucous applause, television ratings or questions from college students, resonating.
