They will follow us into our very homes, our very churches, our very minds, with a vengeance. Their logic and tendency, though perhaps not their conscious aim, is totalitarian.
The sooner and more clearly we understand that, the better.
Wow, Mr. Frisk, you really described Islam well.
The same applies to militant Islam, which is consciously totalitarian.
But I meant leftism.
