Caring Liberal-Progressivism And Anti-Semitism

Ben Stein outlines the growing, irrational racism of liberal-progressivism, in the United States.  That racism, anti-semitism and anti-Israelism, is even more virulent in Europe.

In part liberal-progressivism’s racism is resurgence of scape-goating, blaming one’s failures and miseries on a convenient group of “others.” 

Liberal-progressivism’s across-the-board failure is manifest in the miseries of high unemployment rates here and in Europe; in high rates of violent crime; in never-before-experienced high rates of illegitimate births and single-parent families; in the murder of millions of unborn babies; in current generations of students far less well educated than earlier generations.  Meanwhile the birth rate in the United States (except among immigrant groups) and in Europe has been falling and is now below the rate necessary to keep populations from shrinking in total.  Given the unsupportable costs of welfare-state hand-outs, we and Europe are approaching a point at which the dwindling numbers of those working to produce economic goods will be outnumbered and overwhelmed by the non-working beneficiaries of welfare programs.

This dismal record since the 1960s is the direct result of liberal-progressivism’s hell-bent campaign since the French Revolution to destroy all of the religious morality and social customs that are essential to creating and maintaining social and political order.

Society’s Rights

The lectern used by Senator Dianne Feinstein to announce the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s interrogation methods bore a label declaring “human rights first.”  Human rights, however, depend entirely upon preservation of the political power and social culture that proclaims and supports them.  Enhanced interrogation methods after 9/11 were essential to that end.

Rioting Mobs Victimized By Black Capitalists

Mike Adam’s take on the riots, looting, and burning in Ferguson and elsewhere: truth is an impediment to destabilizing political and social order to further liberal-progressivism.

Political Posturing Costs Lives

It’s difficult to escape the conclusion that the unilateral Democrat-Socialist Party condemnation of CIA post-9/11 interrogation tactics is anything other than a flip-flop of opinion aimed solely at diverting attention from the Obama administration’s continually unfolding scandals at the IRS and revelations of lying about ObamaCare, as well as public rage over the president’s imperial enactments of immigration regulation and unauthorized changes to ObamaCare implementation.

Union Of Concerned Busybodies

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) have been spectacularly successful in producing increased food crop yields, crops that are resistant to diseases and insects, and crops that need much less water than unmodified crops. 

BUT corporations, those unredeemable products of evil capitalism, are making a profit from developing and marketing them. Therefore, liberal-progressive-socialists (who know what is best of you) MUST find reasons to ban them from use around the world, even through doing so will contribute to starvation of many of the world’s peoples.

However, there is no scientific evidence to support liberal-progressive-socialists’ destructive campaign.  We can’t let that stop their efforts, of course, because they are “caring,” and their good intentions are more important than contrary real-world results of their socialistic programs.

What’s The Real Deal In Ferguson?

We are confronted with a fundamental Constitutional issue: protecting the rights of individuals against mindless mobs in the streets.

His True Colors

Obama is our first black president, but he is also the first president who deliberately and repeatedly has played the race card to stoke class warfare and foment racial turmoil, purely for domestic political gains.  His conduct appears to be motivated by the same liberal-progressive-socialist urge to destroy our social and political fabric that motivated his friend and advisor Bill Ayers. 

Ayers, it will be recalled, was featured in a New York Times article, published ironically on 9/11, the day the Pentagon and the World Trade Towers were bombed by Al Queda.  In the Times article Ayers is quoted as stating the he had no regrets about organizing the student-radical Weatherman Underground, an organization that bombed public buildings and robbed and murdered innocent civilians, all in the name of “Death to Amerika; bring the [Vietnam] war home, and ice the pigs.” 

Obama and his racist Attorney General Eric Holder clearly absorbed Ayers’s animosity toward “the pigs” (police).

Liberal-Progressives Attempt To Shred NYC’s Social Fabric

After successive law-and-order administrations, New York City has a class-warfare mayor.  Mayor de Blasio turns his Sandinista-trained, communist revolutionary tactics toward reversing NYC’s hard won, major reductions in its crime rate.  But he may not have the political skill needed to destroy public order entirely.

Rachel Noerdlinger’s exit highlights the de Blasio team’s intellectual emptiness.

Obama’s Non-Stop Race-Baiting Politics

The president and Attorney General Eric Holder have seized far too many occasions to foment racial discord.  Even when Obama nominally supports law and order, he signals for more rioting, burning, and looting.
