About Alexis de Tocqueville on Islam
He was one of the most interesting French intellectuals of his time. But his lifework transcended both him and his era. According to Encyclopedia Britannica Alexis de Tocqueville was “a political scientist, historian, and politician, best known for Democracy in America, 4 vol. (1835–40), a perceptive analysis of the political and social system of the United States in the early 19th century.”
His books are part of the curriculum of numerous schools. Democracy in America is very interesting, enlightening, funny, entertaining, and prescient in some ways.
But in the Tocqueville Reader, which includes not only his major writing but also travel notes, letters, conversations with ministers and politicians, as well as diary entries not originally intended for the public, De Tocqueville tells us exactly what he thought about Islam.
Today he would be labeled as an “Islamophobe” by our brainwashed neo-Marxist academics, media, and government:
“I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”
How many schools today will recommend this reading to their students? How many politicians will have the courage to read these words from the platform they have been given by their constituents? How many journalists will agree to hosting a live debate between a jihadi apologist and jihadi scholar who is pro-America and pro-Western civilization?
What has happened to the people of the free world? It’s almost as if we have less freedom of thought and definitely less freedom of speech than a 19th century Frenchman?
Or should I say a French “Islamophobe”?
In light of the stolen 2020 presidential elections and the collapse of public trust in the rule of law in America by more than 80 million pro-Trump voters, what option do we have going forward but to do our best to draw a line in the sand and recruit as many as possible on the side of Liberty? The days are coming when we will need to know exactly who are the talkers and who are the doers when it comes to reclaiming America. This process has already begun. The betrayal of President Trump by his own party, by the Vice President and even by the Supreme Court, was nothing short of a tragic but in a way necessary part of the process of revealing the true condition of the country.
We now have to consolidate and purge our ranks from false “patriots”, false “churches” and other false authority figures. When clarity comes, strength is restored.
I see Islamophobia Watch as a tool in drawing the proverbial line in the sand. Speaking the truth about Islam is part of the test we need to be aware of. If someone is too cowardly to speak up about the true nature of Islam, including its history, they shouldn’t be trusted or allowed to have influence. Normally, this public vetting process would be part of the job of the media. However, the media is completely compromised. In fact, they are part of the propaganda machine.
So in a way it’s up to citizen projects such as IW to facilitate these opportunities for people to learn about where our leaders stand on this critical issue.

President Trump passed the test. He spoke in no unclear terms about the danger of jihad. Now it’s our turn to do that.
