I do interact with Liberals on other boards and a point of dispute is my depiction of Liberals as angry and self righteous. I happen to like the liberals I interact with on other boards and I wish more of them would join the discussion. Contary to popular belief I do not hate the man with the 167 IQ. I also do not hate rabid dogs or psychotic people either.
One of the great boards I visit is a good site called the Disgruntled Chemist. Unlike
the Recidivist he has an open forum like we do here. He is equaly commited to free speech as we are here. Yet his blog features over the top posts like "The President is a Pussy" and a recent link to a post I fked Coulter in the tail. He has called the
GOP the party of god in his blog. He also talks about paranoid Conservaties in a reference to David Horowitz. This is not an attack on the Chemist who I respect as a
blogger and as a person. He is passionate on his side of the aisle and is every bit
the patriot that I am. However both of us disagree with the vision of what we want America to be. Most of the liberals who post on his forum are great people that I like but disagree with.
Some on his forum are upset because I characterize the left as angry. I stand by that depiction and say look at your own blogs seriously. Today the Disgruntled Chemist gives Arnold Shwartzenger the middle finger for supporting the minute men. The serious issue of immigation control and reform boiled down to a digit. The Chemist is capable of thought provoking commentary it is sad he choses to lower the
The other topic is my depiction of the left as typified by the Peace protesters. Notably, nobody was in a rush to defend the week long temper tantrum in NYC at the RNC. The woman next door was a senior citizen and she was terrified to leave her appartment.She had survived Kristalnacht and the out of control mob brought back memories. When she left to get groceries brave facists started to harass her shouting
antisemitic slurs. NYPD escorted her home and the protesters were moved on. The protesters attempted to bait the cops. I witnessed one protester throwing an object at the police and trying to escape into the crowd. The police aprehended the suspect but a mob demanded his release. The police held firm and won the battle of wills. The protesters spat on and threw shoes at anti abortion activists and born again Christians. They must believe in the Recidivists axiom free speech as long as I agree
Not covered by the press was the role of the observers. The National Lawyers guild was supposed to be observers. They were reporting movements of the police to protest organizers in Union Square Park . If there were justice this group would be fined for there role in the mayhem.
The problem for the left is that they think that my depiction of them as angry based upon their blogs and the protesters is unfair. The fact was that Kerry campaign workers were in the crowd and numerous DNC shirts were visable. The small number of protesters for the Schaivo case make this an absurd comparison. Some of you think the reaction of my nephew is unfair. However unlike me he is a self described liberal and his blog has zero political content. He noticed the anger and is facing the choice I faced 20 years ago.
Twenty years ago I was and still am a social liberal but I am a Cold Warrior . The battle against Communism was a serious matter that even today some do not acknowledge. Sadly, the myths of the Vietnam era are in our popular history textbooks.Myth number one is that the antiwar protesters were popular.This is absolutely not true and many older radicals are flumoxed trying to peddle this myth to people like myself . The leaders of the movement were self promoters who employed fake veterans and lied in fake hearings. The legacy of the anti war movement is 30 years of authoritarian repression in Vietnam,Killing Fields , Boat People and Re -education camps.
Not content with selling out the Vietnamese the same cast of dupes tried this routine in Central America. A proto Communist government came to power in Nicaragua
and Reagan was determined to roll Communism back.This is when I first heard of John Kerry and Senator Harkin. They were among the authors of ther Dear Comondante letter
asking Ortega to cool his jets on the Communism. Ortega rewarded Kerry's faith by going to Moscow two days after Contra aid was suspended.
The left used a whole bunch of front grouds to white wash the Sandanistas and the Communist Rebels.Noticeable in this plethora of Communist front groups was Cispes.Today we have the same people setting up Front groups to hide their agendas.
Code Pink , International Answer and the ISM are cover for Communists to manipulate
larger mass movements. This is why when you march in a peace protest you may be endorsing the agenda of the organizers. I spoke with hundreds of protesters and maybe two or three knew the names Lelie Cagan or Medea Benjamin. This is not to say that everyone who is in the antiwar movement is a Commie . However , their presence and domination of the movement dicredits the legitamacy of such protests.
My nephew is starting to notice the anger and acceptance of Joooooo and Christian bigotry. The fact is that much of the left hides the bigotry by playing word games with Zionism. In fact the next time anyone questions my assesment of a problem kindly read the Recidivists blog post Simon Jones. Joooooooos percieve gentiles as the enemy. Joooooos are responsible for polution and allienation.Americans are defacto Jooooooos .Joooooooos control the world.
In reality my nephew may conclude what I did twenty years ago. The democratic party
and the rational left need a clean break . They have permitted people into their ranks that do not belong there. Their coziness with anti-american,seditious communist
and bigoted elements has done this country a great disservice. It is time for the Democrats to decide what they want to be. Do they want to be greens then fine ?
The truth is people like John Kerry created the Neocon movement. The original Neocons were anticommunist liberals. The obstructionism of Kerry, Harkin, Tip Oniell
in the Cold War pushed the movement into Reagans big tent. The Democrats are fooling
themselves if they think the antics of the far left does not hurt them .
The self rigteous attitude and gloom and doom rhetoric are creating an irrelevancy
to the left. It is easy to blame Fox news and Limbaugh for brainwashing the masses.
The harder thing is to look in the mirror at what the left has devolved into. Call me insensitive but I care more about what shoppers say in a Walmart in North Dakota
then the bloviations in the salons of Paris. Calling me a Cowboy is not an insult as cowboys were men of action . I do not aspire or wish to be European as I am an American. Much of the Anti Americanism is thinly disguised anti capitalism. I am proud to be an American and if you have a problem with it that is up to you.
