At first glance, the events surrounding the Iraq affair seem quite bizarre. America, which provided the main power in defeating fascism in Germany, Italy and Japan in World War II, then defeated Soviet totalitarianism in the Cold War and has been the stalwart proponent of peace and democracy in the world since as evidenced by the Balkans, Kosovo and Afghanistan now stands under attack from much of the world. The streets of Europe, which we freed from tyranny, are now filled with protests against America's attempt to deactivate the classical secular fascist Saddam Hussein.

" WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
DIVERSITY IS STRENGTH"
I suppose the "knee-jerk" adjective would refer to the extreme left, who oppose only the wars of Republican presidents. You are correct in your assessment of Blair's and Chirac's origins but haven't they gone in opposite directions since 9-11? Blair to the right and Chirac to the anti-war camp?
This is where I strongly disagree with the author of this article. The liberal/socialist Left can only achieve their utopian dreams of power and control at the barrel of a gun. They do not tolerate anyone who disagrees with them a fact that you will discover once you hit the university. Opinions outside the liberal/socialist orthodoxy are shouted down and otherwise attacked. Speakers advocating ideas essential to individual freedom and responsibility have been assaulted on college campuses; college newspapers that dare to print anything other than liberal/socialist, America-hating ideas are routinely stolen and burned by the liars and haters on the liberal/Left. This isnt hyperbole or exaggeration these are well-documented cases and there are many of them. The great irony is that those who howl the most about free speech and civil rights are those who are the first to deny them to those with whom they disagree.
Consider this: those who support monsters and murderers, those who, by their actions provide them with aid and comfort are as guilty as the monsters themselves. The blood of those slaughtered by the communist/socialist dictators of the 20th Century is on the hands of those in this country who excused their actions and applauded them. If a liberal socialist denies that the blood of innocents is on their hands, ask them this: Are you saying, then that the people who attended the 1930s Nurembug rallies of the National Socialist Party of Germany, the people who cheered themselves hoarse and applauded them with the rapt expressions of the true believer werent in any responsible for what the Nazis did? Are you saying that the German people didnt have any say in putting the Nazis into power? Are you telling me that it was nobodys fault and that the Nazis just flew down in flying saucers and took over, Darth Vader-like?
The answer, of course, is that nothing of the sort happened - it took an entire culture to empower monsters like the Nazis. Eric Voegelin, one of the great philosophers of the late, lamented 20th Century tells us that the rise of the Nazis and the unspeakable atrocities that they committed were not the product of one madman nor even of a deranged elite it was necessary for German society as a whole to participate and to enable the slaughter of 21 million people in the camps and by the Einsatzgruppen. Voegelin tells us that it was a spiritual disease that allowed the German society of the time to give free reign to the Nazis and that even though the Germans lost the war, the roots of that same spiritual disease remained intact. Goes a long way towards explaining why the Germans arent helping us now, doesnt it? The smug, America-hating intellectuals in the universities and the howling anti-war mobs in the streets all share the common pedigree of that same spiritual malaise. Its why you cannot reason or argue with them. Theyre really not interested in the truth. Theyre not interested in reason. They dont care about whats right and whats wrong they claim that the concepts of right and wrong are the products of ignorance and bigotry.
They are all interested in power, however. And thats the power they crave to remake the world in the image of their sick, Utopian dreams. Again, the sad, sorry history of the 20th Century shows that every time the Utopian power-lusters got the upper hand, millions of people died, and millions more lived in poverty, ignorance and slavery.
Thats the pedigree of the Left, dear family. Its a legacy of mass murder and slavery, a heritage of slaughter and impoverishment and a promise of more of the same if they ever get the upper hand again. And thats why we must all stand up and fight these murderous bastards with everything we have. Theres no curing the spiritually ill of their disease. They can neither be argued nor reasoned out of it. They can only be fought. One of the great lessons of history is that those who failed to speak up, those who lacked the courage to fight came to no good end. Its better to die with a rifle in your hands than to look at the world through someone elses barbed wire. But its even better to make those with the barbed wire ambitions die before they can put up the fences and put others and you behind them.
That's because they are, root and branch, the same rotton fruit of the philosophically and spiritually diseased tree.
Our choice may just be as simple as bullets now or barbed wire later. If folks think that the Patriot Acts are scary, just think of that apparatus of the State in the hands of the Left. That's beyond scary.
