La polizia del pensiero. Come l'islamismo (più o meno radicale) ha promosso il suo programma tra intimidazioni, censure e abile manipolazione del politically correct. E come l'occidente ci è cascato. Paul Berman (non un naziskin) recensisce il libro di Marshall e Shea. Per me uno dei passi più inquietanti è il seguente:
In 2008, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the State Department instructed their employees to avoid the words “salafi,” “wahhabist,” “caliphate,” and “jihadist” as offensive to Muslims when used by non-Muslims. On the advice of unidentified Muslim consultants, the word “liberty” was also dropped in favor of “progress.” That year, the U.K. Home Secretary also dropped the term “Islamic terrorism” and instead instituted “anti-Islamic activity.” In 2009, the U.S. Homeland Security secretary dropped “Islamic terrorism” in favor of “man-made disasters.” The May 2010 U.S. National Security Strategy document, which in previous years had said, “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century,” dropped any reference to “Islamic extremism.”
