THE LEFT

"I believe the Left has been wrong on virtually every great moral issue in the last 30 years. During that period, it was wrong on the Cold War—it devoted far more energy to fighting anti-communism than to fighting communism. It was wrong for attacking Israel for its destruction of Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor. It was wrong on welfare. It was wrong in its demanding less morally and intellectually from black Americans than from all other Americans. It was wrong in advocating bilingual education for children of immigrants. It was wrong in generally holding American society rather than violent criminals responsible for violent crime. It was wrong in imposing its view on abortion on America through the courts rather than through the democratic process... It was wrong in identifying 'flag waving' with fascism. It was wrong in supporting the teachers' unions rather than students and educational reform. It was wrong in allying itself with trial lawyers and blocking tort reform. It was wrong in blocking the military from recruiting on campuses and teaching a generation of young Americans that 'war is not the answer' when war is at times the one moral answer... In just about every instance, one could say that the Left was foolish, the Left was naive, the Left was wrong, even that the Left was dangerous." —Dennis Prager

  • Great post! And what makes the Left even more dangerous is their own unshakeable conviction that their rightiousness and compassionate intentions isolates them from criticism and justifies whatever they do or say regardless of the outcome.

  • Dennis hit the nail on the head with this observation. Clarity is his driving force and it couldn't be more clear.
