Yes, the "hard" left and Islamists are aligned politically. The "hard" left's and Islam's ends, vis-à-vis non-freedom of speech are copasetic. Both entities want to shut up criticisms of their preferred icons: the left wants to squelch the "defamation" of their favorite classes: homosexuals, lesbians, transgenders, obesity, Islam, and a long, lonf checklist of other "protected" classes; Islam's list of protected classes is much shorter, reserved almost exclusively by Mohammad and Allah. Both entities wish to have the power to punish offenders financially or physically or in one's profession. It is an alliance of power-lusters that the "hard" left and "Islamists" have actually hammered out over a decade. They are both to be opposed with as much vigor as one can muster.
