A muslim terrorist and a progressive walk into a bar... not a good way to start a joke, for numinous reasons but to hear progressives talk about muslim terrorists you would think it must be. This facebook post does a good job at highlighting the issue:

It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.

It's like a bad Monty Python sketch:

"We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it."

"No you didn't."

"Wait, what? Yes we did..."

"No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons."

"WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers."

"No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so."

"Huh!? Who are you to tell us we're not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being."

"Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that's why you did this. We're sorry."

"What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians - disenfranchisement doesn't even enter into it!"

"Listen, it's our fault. We don't blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out."

"Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we're not going to let you take it away from us."

"No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame."

"OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?"

That post is mocking but it is also not very far from the truth of the thing. Muslims HAVE stated that they have, are, and will continue to do terrorism against any and all and by their very actions, they prove it on an ongoing basis but progressives here in America and Europe continue to blindly say "No, that incident over there does not mean anything. It is isolated." When it next happens it is "Nope, not a trend. Isolated." and again "Workplace violence. Not an indication of larger issues." and yet again "Small isolated group, Not part of anything that we should take notice of!"

Let ONE Christian group (and a demonstrable out-liner group at that) shout at gay men and suddenly that one incident is PROOF POSITIVE that all Christians are racists and homophobes.

Conservatives point out the fact that nearly ALL terrorist acts perpetrated over the last couple of decades have been perpetrated by one specific, identifiable group of individuals that all share a very limited set of common traits and Conservatives are the problem FOR NOTICING what everyone else is too afraid to say. Sorry but the truth is, if you are an 18 to 35 year old male that practices Islam, you are much more likely to be involved in terrorism than the general population. Much more likely than your average Christian male. Astronomically more likely than your average Amish male. This is statistics. It is not racist to notice this but it is delusional to willfully ignore it, and it is the height of insanity to demand that the rest of us subscribe to your delusion.

Just this week there was a very large set of attacks in Paris by Muslim terrorists. The current U.S. President wants to invite thousands of Syrians into America. Really? Don't worry we are told. They will be vetted we are told. Are you kidding me?  This very same government that let 4 Americans die at one of our embassies and blamed it on a video. This very same government that ran an illegal arms program called "Fast and Furious" and tried to cover it up. This very same government that spent BILLIONS of dollars on a web site with a shopping cart for insurance and could NOT get it to work nor keep the information secure. This very same government that found ZERO malice or lawlessness in an IRS that demonstrably targeted conservative groups. This very same government that dumped toxic waste into a river and tried to cover it up. This very same government is competent enough to screen 10 thousand or more Syrian refugees to guarantee that not a single one of them is a terrorist. Really? REALLY?

Label me unconvinced and that is no joke.
