"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
This is an exposé on the commonality between the American Left, which now includes the majority of elected Democrats.These people have been consumed with the “radicalization” of Liberalism — which is by definition a cousin to socialism/ communist. It’s just that close cousin the Left wants to keep hidden in the proverbial attic so American’s don’t understand who they really are.
Much of their ideology is in lockstep with “radical Islamist”. Don’t believe it? Keep reading.
Both ideologies hate “free speech” afforded to Americans and most western cultures. Islam has no tolerance for anyone speaking against Muhammad, Islam in general, beheadings, sharia law, bacon, women or . . . much else. Neither do Democrats, except when they’re pretending to. They have worked extremely long and hard to promote all conservative speech, as “hate speech”, so it can be controlled or eliminated. Their general policy has been to use insults, hyperbole and calls of racism, bigotry and intolerance, to shut up their Conservatives opposition.
It’s also true that neither ideology approve of individual freedom or self-determination, but want, and demand, that their ideology be the only acceptable ideology. Political Correctness IS the suppression of free speech. It was created to intimidation and control those that allow it to do so. Americans have all been bullied by it in one form or another. Is that not exactly what we’ve seen with “radical” Islam?
“Radical” Islam/ terrorist believe and teach religious conformity of Sharia law. Women are less esteemed than camels. Democrats hate, use foul language directed at and revile Conservation woman because they disagree with their values. Examples: here
Liberals believe in the ‘group’ and conformity; the group is more important than the individual — is really doesn’t take a “village” to raise a child, but a Mom and Dad.
Leftist believe the individual should be willing to give up personal freedom for their idea of a “better society” (no smoking ordinance, ‘gun free zones’, food controls, “green” demands, speech conformity, banning of drink, sugar and names – like Redskins). Very recently Democrats in Congress have even made moves to change the Constitution/ Bill of Rights by “limiting free speech”. As we know, that’s to punish and control the “Right”/ Conservatives and their God-given, Constitutional rights to speech.
The Left demands tolerance for their views (acceptance of homosexual marriage for instance) and demand all others be tolerant of their views — only. This by definition, makes the Leftist agenda, intolerant. When disagreement arose over Barack Obama’s policies and ideology, the Left screamed “racist!” in an attempt to shut Conservatives up — rather than debate their radical ideology. More intolerance morphed into tyranny.
This is what all “radicals” do – whether Islamic…. or Leftist Democrats. Demand everyone conform to their ideas of ‘right’.
Read part of this transcript and see the similarities in what these people. Conservatives won’t be surprised. Democrats, liberals and Leftist will simply deny the truth as they always do:
Caller: The Left love to preach to others. — You know, because of this holier-than-thou feeling that they need to preach their beliefs to somebody else, they’re going to look for something wrong; for something to criticize in the other people. Even though the mainstream citizens aren’t doing anything wrong. And that’s pretty much where it stems from, that even though the radical Muslims are committing egregious crimes, somebody here is condemning it and exposing it. ……
RUSH: Because it’s a real basic question: Why in the world do they go so far out of their way to make sure these people aren’t offended? I think it’s because they, the American left, have a lot in common with militant Islam. They have a common enemy, and the common enemy is American conservatives.
RUSH: I think they’re both totalitarian. They believe in totalitarianism. They believe in the largest central command and control, commanding and telling everybody what they can and can’t do. Where they can and can’t go. What they can and can’t eat. The similarities between the American left and militant Islam are shocking.
We (conservatives, and normal Americans) believe in freedom, and that doesn’t go with either liberalism or Islam. Let me read you this LA Times op-ed, which claims that freedom of speech probably does go too far when it involves Islam.
Answer this question with intellectual honesty: “If your average liberal had a choice to rid the world of Muslim extremism or American conservatism, what do you think the liberal would choose?”
We (conservatives) want freedom, individual responsibility, individuality, entrepreneurism. You make the best of life however you can. Equality of outcomes is not possible. They want sameness everywhere, even sameness in dress. It’s really striking when you think about it, all the areas of similarity. It really is. When a terrorist act happens, what’s the liberals’ first reaction? Blame conservatives! Dark Knight Rising? Tea Party! Gabby Giffords? Sarah Palin!
Liberals hate the facts — they’re so ‘inconvenient’. But it’s always the Liberal Left who condemned free speech, the right to self defense (gun ownership), make laws as to what is “allowed” to eat or drink (or the size cup that’s “allowed” to be sold). Now they’re starting to kowtow to Sharia law (as Obama and Hillary did last weekend) – appeasing Muslims, condemning Christians beliefs (just as the Catholic Church).
They, the Left, Liberals, and Democrats refuse to see themselves in a mirror held to their faces. Like a vampire, they see no reflection — only manufactured hated, bigotry and racism emanating from their own blinded souls.
