The Jihad of Liberalism

In Islamic countries we often hear of the three choices offered the non-Muslim, the kafir, the infidel.   Three choices beginning with convert, pay the jizya poll tax and become a third class citizen or die.   Liberals often employ this same Jihadists tactic with non-liberals. 

It is my experience that liberals are far more than simply gullible or ignorant.  Their world view is one of self-deception and self-loathing.  They are political and historical masochists.  They feel so ashamed at the generosity, wisdom, beauty, and success of Western civilization that they have trained themselves to process everything through the prism of masochism.  They are truly Ameriphobic. 

This perverted viewpoint allows them to look upon American slavery as the worst of all sins ever committed.   While that period of American history is certainly abhorrent, the liberals were never taught that the slave trade was possible only because of Islamic conquest in the Middle East, Persia, Asia and Africa, and its heavy emphasis on the slave trade.   This human trafficking is what helped pay for the jihad of conquest that fueled the spread of Islam. 

Liberals tend to not look fondly on our Founding Fathers (most of whom were true abolitionists), or our Declaration or Constitution.  They tear down America because of our sins.  In contrast, conservatives look fondly at America for her ideals and values, which led to the ending of slavery and eradication of many other historical ills.  Americans are not the dictators of the world, but the liberators of humanity from the hands of dictators.  That is simply a fact!

Liberals have actually taken on many of the traits of the Islamists they so often defend. 

America is in decline for this very reason: the liberal population of our country no longer defends her, but is, rather, attempting to destroy her.  Moderates and middle-of-the-roaders tend to follow like lemmings, because they are incapable of processing reality, and cannot discriminate between the rights and wrongs of history, and give credit where credit is due -- to the superiority of Western culture, even with all its flaws and blemishes.  There is such a thing as better.  And I, for one, am proud to be an American, and I will defend her every chance I get.  As for our presidents, and the current administration, many of them are not worthy of defense, as they are far more anti-American than patriotic. 

Liberals live by their own version of Sharia Law. 

They say they are inclusive -- yet, when asked about including the Tea Party, or a Republican, or a conservative, they recoil in horror.  They aren't inclusive and they aren't tolerant. 

They say they speak for the innocent -- yet they refuse to defend the unborn and the elderly from Obamacare. 

They say they are for free speech and the First Amendment, but say anything ill of a liberal, a liberal program, or a liberal idea, and you will be railed for "blasphemy" -- a crime punishable by a boycott, lost jobs, or character assassination (the next “best” thing to death itself). 

They say they are for women, and pretend to defend them against the so-called “War on Women,” yet they allow their men to live lives of shame, allowing the likes of John Edwards and Bill Clinton (who practically had a concubine in Arkansas) to roam free in the hen-house.  Never mind the dozens of others, who got away with philandering with nary a harsh word from the so-called “women's groups.”  It would be laughable, if it weren't so downright depressing.  It seems the liberal men get to enjoy the Islamic paradise of endless women here and now, rather than having to blow themselves up for the cause.  Well, I guess they do “blow up” their egos a bit, don't they? Let's call it martyrdom “lite.”

Just like Islamists, liberals, too, have a dualistic ideology.  It's always okay to destroy the livelihood of a non-liberal, and never okay to speak ill of a fellow progressive, even when the subject or offense is exactly the same. 

Liberals are always droning on themselves about promoting women and minorities, but are simply hypocrites when it comes to putting their money, or political appointments, where their mouth is.  Republicans, they may be shocked to learn, were the force behind abolition, desegregation, women's suffrage, and civil rights.  But you won't hear that in the high schools, colleges, or universities, and you will never see it on network news. 

Liberals are all about fairness and equality, except when it comes to conservative blacks and conservative women.  To those, slander and ad-hominem attacks are delivered on cue.  The ugliness echoes almost endlessly, as if fed back through a liberal meme-phone. 

Vitriolic talk is to be condemned, if not outlawed, unless it comes from the lips of a liberal.  In which case, it is simply the truth, on steroids.  All passion from the right is, of course, from the bowels of racism and sexism, and any and every phobia invented in the progressive nomenclature.

A liberal can actually tell everyone that the word "bossy" needs to be cleansed from the culture with a straight face.   Only a liberal would proclaim that burning words and redacting our language isn't the culmination of a "bossy" mind but one instead who is doing good for the children, or better yet those fragile little girls.

Liberals condemn any sort of criticism of those who switch sides -- tolerance, acceptance, and open arms are how you welcome those who have turned to the dark side.  However, it is much different when leaving the liberal plantation; becoming an apostate leads to marginalization at best, and most-assuredly a fatwa on your head.  It never leads to enlightenment and tolerance, and happy good-byes.  Giving up the old faith is an apostasy worthy of death, but character assassination will suffice, as it is the most trusted form of liberal abuse to beat former acolytes into submission. 

The most hated conservatives are often those who escaped through the underground railroad of critical thinking: Ronald Reagan, Andrew Breitbart, Thomas Sowell, David Horowitz, even Milton Friedman, were all once liberals! Do current liberals have anything good to say about them? No.  All we get is "senile," "Bat poop crazy," "Uncle Tom," "irrelevant," and "misguided." Former liberals are only recognized by the scarlet letter or the verbal filth poured upon their heads. 

The longer I live, the more I see the similarities between the ideology of liberals and the Islamists they so often defend.   You either think like them, believe like them or feel their wrath.   You either convert to their side, or face the penalties of their faith system: pay them homage by bowing down in political correctness to their idols or remain fearfully silent -- otherwise you will be what is called behind closed doors as an "example."  If that doesn't work, they will move to option three, the slow death of a million cuts known as the political vendetta aka character assassination. 

Liberalism may be just as deadly to the political reputation of a wayward soul as their Jihadist brotherhood is to the breath of life.  There are many fronts on which we must do battle.  Exposing the absurd and dangerous duality of liberalism is one of them.
