Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.

In 2020, mainstream liberals like Noam Chomsky, Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Gloria Steinem, and JK Rowling are fighting back against the tactics of the "woke" far left. Although aligned on many principles, the woke crowd often uses and endorses tactics that perpetuate censorship and ostracism, what has come to be known as "cancel culture." Atheists and secularists from the Muslim world have been subject to this for years, and to us, it isn't much of a surprise. What's surprising is that this realization has now reached prominent mainstream liberals. Will they win? Or will the left's extremists overrun them like it happened on the right? In this episode, we look at both sides of the cleft on the left using a bit of role play: Armin presents the woke arguments, and Ali plays the mainstream liberal. Listen and tell us what you think.
