Jeffrey Lord points out an interesting trend in the way liberals react to conservative writers, speakers and intellectuals. Every time any conservative points out the falsehoods within much of liberal thought and viewpoint or exposes the insincerity of their practices, the liberal establishment reacts to a degree totally unwarranted by the claims or charges made. Liberal terror is very real, but not exactly in the manner that Mr. Lord presents. The real liberal terror is fear. Fear that resides within the liberals, themselves.
Fear is what drives liberals and the liberal establishment. Fear of being hurt, fear of being hungry, fear of being unloved and fear of the unknown. Liberals greatest fear is being out of control. For without total control of society, the environment and, most especially, ideas, liberals fear that they will have to face the real world. They will have to experience pain, hardship, loneliness and all the other things that humanity has had to endure and deal with since the dawn of time. To this end they are attempting to create a surrogate womb populated by drones who act and think alike and suffer none of the negative emotions. They are kidding themselves, however. For without the negative emotions, the positive emotions of relief, elation, pride and love do not exist.p>The real terror of liberals is simply their own fear. This fear drives them to savagely attack anything and anyone that threatens their Disneyworld view of the world. Unfortunately, until they identify the true source of their terror, it will continue, unabated. There is nothing that the rest of us can do for them, but we must continue to deal with reality. Whether liberals like it or not. br> — Michael Tobias br> Ft. Lauderdale, Florida /p> p> Mr. Lord, how incredibly marvelous are the intricate neuro-linguistic pathways of the brain, which in conservatives, invariably lead us to the truth, and which in liberals, inexplicably lead them to destruction. You may have heard this one, and I hope I get it right, but Bill Buckley tells a joke about a friend of his who said he’d been urged by a liberal acquaintance not to vote for Goldwater because we would end up getting into a war. “Darn if he wasn’t right, Bill. I voted for Goldwater, and sure enough, we got into a war!” br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
