Are you, or have you ever been an Islamo-leftist?

Vote centrist, get fash!

But Macron wants to go beyond attacking the Muslim community and is now taking aim at the left as well.

And in doing so, he is taking a page from the playbook of one of his main rivals, Marine Le Pen, president of the far-right National Rally. The idea of “Islamo-leftism” is something she popularised in her first presidential campaign in 2012.

Judeo-Bolshevism redux

Karlll Akbar!

Only doing take-aways.

It seems to be a particularly French thing

# tassel, but its roots, in other variations, are also elsewhere.

Doesn’t sound much fun.

"Are you, or have you ever been an Islamo-leftist?"

"What, with these feet? Who'd have me?"

I'm not sure about its roots, but it has obviously existed elsewhere. Trying to bring on board Islamists so you can co-opt them for the revolution round the corner doesn't really work.

Whatever happened to NotTheSWP Respect?

Intowntonight - 31 Mar 2021 07:27:28 (#11 of 37)

tassel: as the Iranian Marxists will testify: used by the Mullahs to help bring down the Shah- then over 3000 executed..

TheValkyrie - didn't George Galloway pull the plug ?

According to Bruce Chatwin: "Western hippies drove educated Afghans into the arms of the Marxists."

Tomnoddy - 31 Mar 2021 07:32:16 (#14 of 37)

It eas all just a Gorgeous George vanity project.

Tomnoddy - 31 Mar 2021 07:35:08 (#15 of 37)

And the US drove the Afghans into the arms of the Mullahs. This then gave us extensive ongoing regional destabilisation on a slow burn.

Bruce Who is an arsehole.

That’s said, it’s obvious that Macron is fishing for the fascist vote himself.

machiavelli - 31 Mar 2021 07:44:03 (#18 of 37)

He's an unprincipled shit in a crowded field.

chacqueschirac - 31 Mar 2021 07:50:03 (#19 of 37)

Yep. And he’s first among them.

'leftism' has never meant much in English

'gauchisme' meant something in French at one time - but I'm not sure it does now

islamo-leftism, or islamo-gauchisme, though, they're both contradictions in terms. same as islamo-rightism, islamo-droitisme would be

I would say the same about judeo-leftism, judeo-rightism, or judeo-gauchisme, judeo-droitisme
