“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” goes the old line. Buster Wilson, who was recently fired by the American Family Association for unknown reasons, has his own variation: “All my enemies are exactly the same and must support one another completely.” He tweeted this at Right Wing Watch:
GO ON! READ THIS STORY, IF YOU DARE, @RWW, OTHERS WHO MOCK! HOW ARE YOU GOING TO JUSTIFY THIS?
And he linked to this article, about the truly appalling and barbaric attacks on Christian churches in Egypt by Muslim Brotherhood thugs. This is the same bizarre and ridiculous meme on the right that liberals must support reactionary Muslims. Why? Because he considers both liberals and reactionary Muslims to be his enemy, so they must also support one another. But this is highly irrational.
In reality, Muslim conservatives have far more in common with Christian conservatives than with secular liberals. Both the Christian right and the Muslim right have an authoritarian vision of the world that is built upon their religious views, seeking to impose their similar anti-gay and anti-woman views on everyone else. They share a worldview based on false revelation rather than the use of reason. And both seek to violate the rights of each other, and of everyone else, when they have power.
