This article hit the nail right on the head. Liberals don’t feel comfortable being civil or conventional. Freedom of the press means always dissenting no matter what.p>In your last paragraph you mention congenital alienation. That’s it! They can’t stand to go along. br> — Tom Masles br> Alamo, California /p> p> The good doctor is again at his perspicuous best in describing the liberals’ alienation from the difficult battles, moral, spiritual, and military, we fight today. They are essentially embarrassed to be on the side of conventional and virtuous America. More than that though, liberals behave as they do for the simple reason that it’s easy. Yes, it’s easy to criticize people who are willing to fight for things that they won’t fight for. It’s easy to placate a bully rather than to confront him and ultimately fight him. It’s easy to bribe some entity as rather than to oppose and defeat him. It’s easy to buy one’s way out of difficulty and it’s even easier to do the buying with someone else’s money. In short: it’s easy to avoid and avoid and avoid. Less wear and tear on the organism and all that. Trouble is: the time comes when you finally come up against the unbribable, and you discover you no longer have any fight within you. br> — J. C. Eaton /p>
In your above-referenced article you characterized our adversaries as “Islamofascists.” That description is a contradiction in terms. Islam has nothing to do with Fascism.
Fascism was an exclusive, secular, authoritarian and racist (not necessarily anti-Semitic) system. Islam, whatever its faults, is decidedly inclusive, and certainly not racist, everyone must submit to Allah (the merciful and compassionate), at the point of a sword if need be and though it is religiously authoritarian (as any religion must be), it certainly is not in political terms.
We are not fighting Fascists; we fought them, wiped the floor with them and hung them up to dry. Our mortal enemy is Jihadistan and they mean to win.
Are they winning? Well, just try to board an airplane or enter a Federal building and the question answers itself. As for term “Fascists,” a word once fully understood with which men could agree or disagree with, it has become a meaningless and vulgar term of abuse.p>Gresham’s Law applies to words as well.
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?
