New blog, The Legionairre. proposes that neo-reactionaries/WN’s use Taqqiyah and pretend to be liberals.b Pardon the Islamic quotes, but I think we should appropriate the Muslim Mindweapon of al-Taqqiyah:
What is Taqqiyah?
The word “al-Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury.” A one-word translation would be “Dissimulation.” But it may be clearer to call it lying. Taqiyyah is uttering with the tongue what one does not believe in the heart. Many Sunnis deny that it is an Islamic practice, but Shi’ites dispute this by arguing that it is integral to Islam. According to one Shi’ite source:
Nine tenths of (the Islamic) religion is taqiyyah (dissimulation), hence one who does not dissimulate has no religion. (Al-Kafi vol.9 p.110)
And as a contributor to this site has pointed out:
al-Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (AS) [The Sixth Imam of Ahlul-Bayt] said:
“al-Taqiyya is my religion, and the religion of my ancestors.” He (AS)
also said: “He who doesn’t practice al-Taqiyya, doesn’t practice his
But is it a Shi’ite practice only? Some Sunnis see Taqqiyah as a Shi’a error to be refuted. It is seen as a reason why Shi’ites can’t be trusted by Sunnis and is said to contradict the Qur’an which teaches:
Much is made in some spheres of how universities are essentially indoctrination programs to turn young men and women into liberals. My recent return to university with the beginning of the semester has had me musing on this subject, especially as more and more I see instances of progressive beliefs sneaking in places where they shouldn’t be. Given this type of immersion, one would have to be a remarkable individual to avoid becoming at least somewhat progressive.
The situation has gotten to the point where it is expected that if you are in college you will skew liberal. While many might consider this irksome, why not run with it?
Why not take that reputation and use it to subvert the Cathedral?
Look, if you find yourself at a high-level universities, whether large Ivy League Schools like Harvard or smaller, liberal-arts colleges like Swarthmore, you happen to be at an institution…
