Recovering liberal Robin of Berkley has some comments inspired by the events in Wisconsin:
I have noticed fewer people around town this past weekend. First I thought it was because of the Presidents Day holiday. Then I realized it was because anarchists were being bused into Wisconsin! More for them, and fewer for us!
Because the left are not just abusers; they are terrorists, with leaders who engage in or call for terror, including Bill Ayers and Frances Fox Piven.
Robin nails it. The left doesn't just want our money or even our liberty. As George Orwell said in 1984 they want our entire identity. Our hearts and souls and minds and bodies. They want us to "love Big Brother".
They demand the we not only endure having our spirits crushed but that we willingly cooperate in the process and think that we are lucky to going through it.
This is part, a large part, of the reason why I don't just disagree with them but know them to be utterly evil. I don't just dislike them I hate them with a pure and burning hatred.
This is why I don't even recognize a common humanity with them.
On a related note Robin's comments reminded me of a comment Bob Beckel made on Sean Hannity's radio show a couple of weeks ago.
Beckel admitted that entitlements like Social Security and Medicare were unsustainable and needed reforms like private accounts. He said that he and other Democrats (Beckel was Walter Mondale's campaign manager when he ran for president in 1984) had used the issue to attack Republicans but now that wouldn't work any longer.
I wondered at the time if he knew what he was admitting to. He throws out the fact that for at least 27 years he and other Democrats have known that Republicans were right about Social Security needing reform and that he and they lied about it for political advantage.
And now that the system is paying out more than it takes in and our damaged economy can no longer afford to continue paying out money that we simply don't have he comes along as says, "Oh by the way the GOP was right all along we had better do something about entitlements". Only the population has so successfully been demagogued by men like Beckel and his fellow liberals that it may not now be possible to do anything meaningful about the problem.
It may now be so late in the game that we can no longer avoid an economic collapse and a global depression. A depression which will cause millions in the Third World to starve to death and further pave the way for Islamism to sweep the Middle East. While the West is weakened perhaps to the point of being unable to defend itself.
I hope Beckel and those like him spend eternity burning in hell.
