… and in the largest and most significant under-reported and under-analyzed irony of our young century…
American Democrats are calling for support for Egyptians who are demanding individual freedom, personal liberty, free markets and self-government… as those same American Democrats insist on taking away from American citizens… you guessed it: individual freedom, personal liberty, free markets and self-government… in the name of … Progressivism.
So I guess that means Americans, who have the world’s longest history of self-government, are not qualified for self-government, but Egyptians, who have approximately zero history of self-government ARE qualified for it.
Such is what passes for “thinking” on the Left.
Now, Progressivism isn’t just a new label for “Liberals,” which was a new lable for “authoritarianism” once the Left refuted classical liberalism – which supports the citizens AGAINST the State.
No, Progressivism has as its foundational tenet the absolute belief that the majority of the people are not qualified for self-government, that our self-appointed, self-anointed “betters” know what’s best for us.
Obama is at core a Progressive.. and it is his CORE BELIEF that personal freedom and individual oliberty must be destroyed for our own good. Lenin thought the same thing.
Through his “Progressive” beliefs, Obama has destroyed more liberty in America than most of the world ever thought possible.
Listening to Hilary argue for transition TO democracy in a foreign nation as she is part and parcel of a regime transforming America away FROM democracy here at home is matched only by our adolescent president’s absolute cluelessness over how to wind-up with yet another totalitarian muslim state in the Middle East and South Asia while pretending to those in front of the (self-held) curtain that he is a supporter of democracy, individual liberty and personal freedom.
Carter lost Iran. Obama is losing Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen…
It amazes – constantly – that the Left just does not seem in the least capable of understanding that their policies result in catastrophe for the world … EVERY… SINGLE… TIME… either that, or catastrophe in the name of their ideology is their GOAL, something no longer to be discounted.
How much more clear need it become that the American Progressive movement – and its leaders – must be overthrown? How many more Democrats will demonstrate FOR liberties in other countries before they open their eyes and realize they support abroad what they abhor here… and begin demonstrating for liberty in America again?
How long before Americans are rioting in the streets against the totalitarian we have elected and the tyranny he is emplacing?
The answer will determine the future course of freedom in the world.
