People who regularly read this blog know I respect real liberals. In fact other then my zero patience policy with Communists and Green imposters we have much in common.
The accusation is that I use a broad brush and paint every one on the left with the same brush. There may be some truth to this but the left does the same thing with talk about the religios right. The difference is the religious right has never been subversive nor killed 100,000,000 people. The ties of the progessive caucus to Code Pink, ANSWER and United for Peace and Justice are more incendiary. Even a comparison
to the KKK is unfair as the KKK never killed 100,000,000 people. The KKK and David Duke are also vile and loathsome and I would protest them as well.
An examination of who and what Neocons are leads to the left. Most of the Neocons revere Scoop Jackson who was a tough Cold War liberal. Sadly the definition of what is a liberal was warped by Cold War obstructionist like John Kerry, Tom Harkin and Ted Weiss. The Neocons were welcomed into Reagans big tent and were a voice in the Contra Wars. The Contras were the most prominent in a series of proxy wars that rolled back Communism. The question should be did the policies of Cold War obstructionism cause the Neocons to bolt ? The failure of liberals to push out elements that do not belong hurt them in the long run.
I will search for a better phrase that upsets liberals less. Leftist Utopians would also include the Greens who are mostly mislabeled Communists. It would be nice if familiar bloggers like the Disgruntled Chemist would cut the party of God nonsense.
The difference between this blog and some of the liberal blogs is we do not use profanity or parody anyone other then 167 and Simon Jones professional Anti-Semites.
I will try to use Leftist Utopians as a substitute.
