AMERICAN THINKER HAS THE DETAILS - VIA GATEWAY.
HERE'S WHY THE LEFT SUPPORTS GLOBAL JIHAD:
Sunday, January 11, 2009ALL AS TRUE NOW AS WHEN I WROTE IT.
WHY THE LEFT SUPPORTS GLOBAL JIHAD - AND WHY WE MUST OPPOSE THEM
Postmodern Leftists are principally anti-West. They are anti-American and anti-Israel because the USA is the leader of the West, and they see Israel as an artificial outpost of the West.
There are five reasons why the Postmodern Left hates the West and wants it brought down a notch - at the very least, if not revolutionarily changed beyond recognition.
The Postmodern Left sees the West as the root of all of humanity's problems.
1 - The Left sees the West as the cause of Third World Poverty:
They apparently feel that humans are naturally born into a prosperous world which affords a long life and high living standards, because they fail to see that the West has high living standards and that westerners have long lives because we are industrious, industrialized, capitalistic with rule of law, and free markets. Societies which don't have these things are poor because they are under-developed. Comparing North Korea to South Korea give incontrovertible proof: the South is rich "because of Western hegemony"; the North is poor without it. They are, IOW, just plain wrong. The Third World is poor because they are un-industrialized, have no free-markets, no rule of law and little capitalism.
The postmodern left hasn't a clue that prosperity is created or about how prosperity is created. They think prosperity is a given - that all you need to do is redistribute it. Our current global recession proves this is wrong: wealth has to be created and compounded and reinvested everyday or markets go down. This is why even Obama realizes he can't raise taxes now - because it would retard growth and prolong the recession. Well, if taxes hurt growth in a recession they can't be good - PERIOD. Since the world's population is growing, and much of it is poor, we need a lot more growth all the time. That means lowering taxes is always a good thing to do. Incentivizing an rewarding industriousness is always good, and redistribution schemes always bad.
2 - The Left sees the West as the cause of global-warming and the impending climate change calamity:
The Left feels that AGW - if left unchecked - will eventually destroy the world's economy and make human life unbearable - if not, kill all life on Earth.
Too bad for them that despite ever-increasing levels of man-made atmospheric CO2 the earth is no longer warming. IOW: AGW= BS. And again, the left is just plain wrong.
3 - The Left sees the West - and Judeo-Christian Civilization - as the cause of most of history's genocide:
But, if you add up all the people killed by the West since Rome and Athens were founded over the last 21 centuries it's less than those killed by the Left - in its various forms - just in the 20Th Century. Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Kim et al killed more people in the 20th Century than all the wars in the West which preceded them.
And Islam killed even more than the Left - killing around 270 million since Mohamed invented his martial creed. So... the Left is wrong again, wrong to deride the West.
4 - The Left sees the West as an invader and a bully in the Middle East, and the Middle East's Arab-Israeli conflict as the crux of the current global war:
The Left sees Israel as a colonial outpost of European/Western capitalism. They are wrong again. Arabs and Islam are the true invaders. The Crusades were a counter-offensive, an effort to regain land stolen by the Arabs. Fore the last 2000 years, Jews have lived in the Holy Land continuously, and as recently as the 19Th Century - as contemporaneous reports all indicate - Jewish settlers outnumbered Arabs nomads in the Holy Land. The Left also virtually ignores global jihad in the Philippines, Thailand, Sudan, Nigeria, Algeria, Kashmir and elsewhere - places where Muslim-anti-Muslim violence has actually claimed more lives than all the Arab-Israeli wars combined.
The Left refuses to admit that the Arab-Israeli conflict is but one mere front in global jihad because it undermines their anti-colonialism-template.
5 - The Left sees the West and Judeo-Christian Civilization as the root of unnecessary sexual repression:
The Left feels that Freud was right, that all humans are bi-sexual and poly-amorous, and that any and all laws and traditions which seek to channel or limit humanity's extremely malleable, changeable and elusive sexuality is tyrannical and must be overthrown.
The Left also sees the institutions which have grown out of these "repressive traditions" as competing with state and government institutions which might be both more permissive - (if the state were controlled by postmodernists) - and more invasive and controlling in other arenas, like the economy, health-care, retirement, etc.
IOW, the Left want to get these traditional institutions out-of-the-way so that there is room for statist bureaucracies to take over. Hence the Gramscian Agenda - the Culture Wars.
The Left prefers single-mothers on welfare to wed mothers in Church every Sunday.
These five points are the five fingers of the postmodern leftist fist - the fist they pound into our faces everyday, in every medium, on every front - everyday.
And these are the reasons why - at the very least - the :eft runs interference for our enemies in the present global war, WW4. (The Cold War was WW3.)
YES: In this war, the postmodern left is at the very least the enemy's Fifth Column.
The Left is allied to global jihad because they feel that global jihad will be able to take the West down a notch, and they feel that once the West - and Judeo-Christian traditions and institutions - are demolished that they'll be able to step into the vacuum and establish their benevolent statist bureaucracy.
THIS IS WHY - IF WE WANT OUR CIVILIZATION TO PERSIST - WE MUST FIGHT THE LEFT AS ARDENTLY AS WE FIGHT GLOBAL JIHAD.
