Are All Liberals Communists

The Liberal impulse springs from the need to make some sense of one’s life.  From this positive attitude the situation goes down hill.  Communism was a response to the arch conservatism of the Czarist system in Russia.  Once in power the communists, under Lenin and more so under Stalin, killed more Russian citizens than all the Czars combined.  Of course there were more living citizens to kill at that time, but in absolute numbers it is still true.

Why do liberals in particular the ultra left of the MoveOn.Org types so admire totalitarian systems and their leaders?  If George Bush attempted to stay on as president after 2008 there would be howls of pain from the liberals and conservatives, why have there been no complaints about Fidel Castro?  In fact the US embargo of Cuba is ridiculous because free trade would raise the Cuban economy back to its pre-Castro level and beyond.  It would have been relatively easy to topple Castro from within because the prosperity would have made the population restless for more freedom.

Ultra liberals are honest in one sense: they openly admit that if they can get into power they are determined to undermine the position of the United States and implement policies that will degrade the economic performance of the nation.  This is the template that is consistently used by people who think they know better than anyone else what is best.  Regular liberals are thoroughly dishonest in the sense that they will not take a stand and embrace their contributors and that they will do their bidding if elected.  Instead they issue platitudes that sound good but are without substance.

It is reasonable to guess that George Orwell’s 1984 is anathema to the Ultra Liberals because it reveals what they have in store for the citizens of the USA and the rest of the world.  In Seattle, Washington there is a statue honoring Josef Stalin, a mass murderer of his own people.  Washington State is of course a bastion of liberalism.  The governor’s election actually was stolen by the Democrats even as they cried foul about George Bush’s election in 2000.

The Ultra Liberals admire Stalin, Castro, Chavez, Khomeini, and others of their ilk.  Many of these tyrants come to power under the guise of democracy but soon reveal their true intentions.  Instead describing George Bush as Adolf Hitler it might be useful if they apply this nomenclature to themselves; Hitler was legally elected and soon changed his behavior as he promised in Mein Kampf.

The United States population is too used to liberty to be completely duped and is largely armed to the teeth to resist such a takeover.  Is this why the liberals want to disarm the population?

Button Pushing

Syria has played a good hand in the current war against Israel.  Their ambassador made the disingenuous comment that Syria is ready to talk anytime but the Bush administration has ignored them for the past six years.  This of course is merely a manipulation of the American Left.  It is working and working well.  It is true that the Bush Administration is the first in recent years to publicly ignore Syria; the other contacts by other Presidents have yielded nothing positive.

Assad, Senior and now Junior, have talked and talked but done nothing to assist the United States in bringing peace to the region.  On the contrary, Syria along with Iran has done more to destabilize the situation than any other nation.  The rulers of these nations are shrewd, ruthless, and determined to reach the desired outcome: the destruction of Israel no matter what the cost.  The American political Left simply can not admit this.  So they grasp at straws, and any opportunity to vent their rage and hatred of George Bush.

The Administration clearly got more than they expected with the liberation of Iraq.  Paul Wolfowitz must be quite relieved to be at the World Bank and out of the Defense Department.  He and Donald Rumsfeld did not think through the consequences of this action and persuaded George to proceed.  Now the situation is that Iraq’s WMD are most likely to be in Syria’s possession and will undoubtedly be used if the threat to Assad’s dictatorship becomes serious.

The American Left is simply out of touch.  Witness the latest juvenile attitude towards the reality that abounds; Dennis Kucinich has proposed a Cabinet level position to counter the Defense Department.  He wants to establish a Department of Peace.  Simply changing words can not change the world.
