In the 1960s, the American Left embraced the anti-Vietnam War movement as its cri de coeur. In the 1970s, the Left’s foreign policy focus shifted to calling for unilateral nuclear disarmament by the US and its Western allies. In the 1980s, supporting the Sandinista Communists’ takeover of Nicaragua became the catechism of the Left. In the 1990s, the war on global capitalism – that is, the anti-globalization movement – captivated the passions of US Leftists from coast to coast. In the 2000s, it was again, the anti-war movement. This time the Left rioted and demonstrated against the war in Iraq. And in this decade, the main foreign policy issue that galvanizes the passions and energies of the committed American Left is the movement to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist.......Being hypocrites doesn’t bother them either……they don’t care. They aren’t trying to make the world a better place.
Facts cannot compete with their faith. Reason has no place in their closed intellectual universe. To accept reason and facts would be an act of heresy.…. Challenging [leftists] to a reasoned debate is an exercise in futility. They do not care about human rights.........To Read More.....
My Take - I think this article ranks among the most important articles I have posted this year. Why? Because Caroline outlines just how contemptuous the left is. It clearly shows the left has no moral foundation. They will adopt the most heinous and vile positions if it will gain them the thing they desire most; the power to destroy the U.S. economy and Constitution. Whether it's Israel or environmentalism, the left is completely consistent in one thing and one thing only. Their contempt for humanity! Everything the left has promoted for all of its existence left dystopia in its wake - squalor, misery, disease, suffering and early death. We have over 200 years of history [starting with the French Revolution] to show this is true, so for them to continue down this path one can only conclude they must all be insane. That is the only other thing all leftists must share.
