Sam Harris thinks it’s “unbelievable” that Maajid Nawaz and Ayaan Hirsi Ali made it to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hit list of “Anti-Muslim Extremists.” He said nothing about me or the other people whom the SPLC included, which is not surprising, since he has quite recently expressed willingness to acquiesce in other contexts to the demonization that the SPLC list exemplifies.
Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist blog ably sums up the outrage over Nawaz and Hirsi Ali being included: “If criticizing religious beliefs makes them extremists, then it won’t be long before other vocal atheists end up on that list too. And make no mistake, that’s what Nawaz and Hirsi Ali are doing. That’s all they’re doing. They’re not anti-Muslim; they work with moderate Muslims. They’re critical of the worst aspects of Islam.”
Islam is a disgusting, filthy, evil religion. It has no moral defense. That's why Muslim countries ban the criticism of Islam. They make it a crime punishable by death. The SPLC are just a bunch of ignorant, useful infidels who are virtue signalling their tolerance by pointing out the "hateful" suspects who dare to speak ill of Islam. In reality, they're helping Muslims by providing them with a hit list.
