Watch: Researcher Explains What Radical Islam And The Woke Have In Common
In a quick video from PragerU, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution broke down how the intolerant 'woke culture' and radical Islam have more in common than you may think. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Dutch politician explained how she came to the United States seeking 'free speech' and has found herself bewildered to witnesses as that right is under threat by cancel culturists.
“It never occurred to me that free speech would come under threat in my newly adopted country,” Ali says.
“Even when I first encountered what has come to be known as ‘Cancel Culture’, I didn’t fret too much. I was inclined to dismiss the alliance of campus leftists and Islamists as a lunatic fringe,” she says. “They are not the fringe anymore.”
Ali explained that, though she has received many death threats for speaking out against radical Islam, she has always found comfort in America's freedom of speech. Now that that freedom is under threat, Ali is fighting back.
