DEMOCRATS ARE BLINDSIDED BY THE TRUTH
By Christopher G. Adamo
In recent years, every time Liberals perceive that their “patriotism” is being called into question, they caterwaul as the supposed victims of the most heinous of personal attacks. Their indignation often borders on the hysterical, to the point that far too many Conservatives have actually been intimidated at the prospect of even sounding skeptical of the inherent and universally recognized “loyalty” to country among Leftists.
Yet, up to the United Nations General Assembly podium strode Iranian “President” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last week, denouncing American foreign policy and America’s President. A day later, that same forum witnessed Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, similarly attacking U.S. President George Bush, to the point of calling him “The Devil.” To the dismay of the political Left, the general public readily recognizes that these attacks from foreign leaders precisely echo the “patriotism” regularly being spewed by Liberal Democrats.
Despite the desperate attempts of Democratic Party leaders to distance themselves from the UN spectacle, the parallels between leading Liberal Democrats' words, and, more importantly, their motives, as compared to those of the two hostile foreign leaders, have become irrefutable. The cover of Democratic Party politicians has been blown.
If the Liberal Democrats can claim, by virtue of their subversive and consistently anti-American rhetoric of the past several years, that such behavior is indeed “patriotic,” then so must it be concluded that Ahmadinejad and Chavez are also great American “patriots.”
Yet, Liberalism has never been about “patriotism.” Nor has it been devoted to the betterment of the nation, in terms of the traditional principles on which the nation was founded and has flourished. Rather, Liberalism has remained fixated on an agenda of undermining and ultimately destroying such things, always hiding behind the cloak of the inherent nobility of “dissent,” while claiming to honorably represent the viewpoint of the “loyal opposition.”
Unfortunately for the Left, the venomous ranting of Chavez and Ahmadinejad has removed any phony veneer of “virtue” from its contention that the condemnation of every American effort to preserve its culture, its interests, and its future represents devotion to the country. The goals of those two dictatorial thugs, who barely stopped short of pounding their shoes (or possibly their sandals) on the UN podium, could not by any stretch of the imagination be construed as a roadmap to a brighter American future.
Representative Charles Rangell of New York, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Democrat -California), led the Democrats' “damage control” efforts, which thus far have only amounted to tepid and selective criticism of the foreign leaders’ comments. But no amount of bland disagreement can erase the similarities that an informed public can draw between the positions of hostile foreign dictators to the current leadership of the Democratic Party. The harsh truths revealed at the UN have severely undermined the charade. And Democrats are scrambling in their efforts to minimize the detrimental effects on their political battle plan.
Meanwhile, as a result of that now infamous interview with Fox reporter Chris Wallace, former President Bill Clinton further exemplified the ugly reality of the American Left.
During his two terms in office, Clinton did indeed diligently pursue those he considered his enemies, though their ranks were almost entirely comprised of Conservative and Christian political organizations, which he hounded with the full power of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service.
Moreover, America should never forget the significance of those fourteen hundred FBI files, illegally brought to the White House no doubt to neutralize a “dangerous” foe (albeit a political one). All the while, the gathering storm clouds of militant Islam were virtually ignored, since forcefully dealing with them did not promise to yield any tangible political benefits.
Honest individuals, especially those who have spent their entire lives being schooled in the rigors of public life, rarely react in the hysterical manner Bill Clinton displayed, regardless of the speciousness of any accusations against them. The former President’s minions, including his wife, can attempt to spin the situation in any way they want. Yet, Bill Clinton still looked very guilty. And, despite their relentless efforts to put a good face on the spectacle, everyone knows why he looked so guilty.
Most distressing to the political Left during this past week’s events is that Chavez, Ahmadinejad, and Clinton allowed America a glimpse into the soul of modern Liberalism. All of the sanitizing efforts on the part of the mainstream media -- i.e., the Liberal Leftist media -- cannot revise those images or the words that accompanied them.
Nor can the commonality of their motivations ever after be erased from public awareness. It was not a pretty sight.
