I think I skipped a step in his reasoning. I can't even tell if it's racist or he just really dislikes the political left.
Perhaps, and this is probably giving it more thought than it deserves, he's implying that the far right Islamic theocrats like Al Qaida and the Taliban would have more respect for a similarly far right Christian theocrat? Sort of like a "we agree on the principle but differ on the details" friendly-conflict sort of thing? For all I know that could be true, although I think he overestimates its appeal.
Jesus saved me, but the file was corrupted.
