Better to just admit it outright and get it over with: Osama Bin Laden’s latest rambling diatribe against America sounds more than ever like he’s been reading too much Noam Chomsky and even getting uncomfortably close to your average liberal anti-war bloggers litany of complaints about the world today. Big evil corporations running the world, No Blood For Oil!, arresting Donald Rumsfeld for treason, castigating Democrats for not stopping the war immediately: he even manages to work in a little plug for Global Warming!
But lest it be forgotten, the Big O does throw in a little carrot for conservatives to join in on his jihad too: apparently, under the worldwide caliphate, no taxes dudes!
Well, and also no liberal democracy, no free exercise, no homosexuals, and no Paris Hilton in a bikini writhing on the hood of car. So on second thought, maybe Dinesh D’Souza, Phyllis Schlafly, and crew ultimately have more to cheer on here.
Update: Turns out that Islamic economic policies may not be all they’re cracked up to be.
