I don't know.  It sounds like a species of "third campism."

"US imperialism is bad, but Islamism is just as bad, if
not worse.  Both are to be opposed."

 Gradually, this position becomes "US imperialism is bad, but Islamism
is worse. Hence, US imperialism is more progressive
than Islamism."  

At this point, one joins Chris Hitchens
and Dave Horowitz in hosting a cruise.
