"...my friend, the eminently rational Muslim reformer, Asra Nomani..."
Those are the words of Sam Harris, as I noted in an earlier post, in his most recent podcast, uttered in the same breath in which he is intelligently critiquing the false moderation of Good Cop Dalia Mogahed. A different kind of reformer from Dalia Mogahed, Asra Nomani is what I have called a "Better Cop" -- more adept at pulling the wool over the eyes of brilliant numbskulls like Sam Harris and Bill Maher, among many others who have been waking up (but still half asleep, apparently) to the problem of Islam.
Another ineptly sly Good Cop whose deceptions Sam Harris can see through is Reza Aslan -- about whom Harris has podcasted and written many times, invariably pointing out the mean-spirited (not to mention mendacious) nature of Aslan's propaganda.
And guess what? When one takes 15 seconds to visit the personal website of Sam Harris's sainted friend, the eminently rational Muslim reformer, Asra Nomani, what does one find? A page promoting and praising ... Reza Aslan.
Years ago, I developed the concept of "Quantum Ignorance" -- but this is a deeper level of denial. Call it Quantum Stupidity. Shame on Sam.
