How a Liberal Views Terrorism

In an earlier post entitled "Liberals and Conservatives, Part 2," I quote Dinesh D'Souza from his book Letters to a Young Conservative. He writes,

"Liberals believe that people who fail or do bad things are not acting out of laziness or wickedness; rather, society put them in this unfortunate position. Since people are innately good, liberals hold, the great conflicts in the world are not the result of good vs. evil; rather, they arrive out of terrible misunderstandings that can be corrected through ongoing conversation and through the mediation of such groups as the United Nations."

Now consider this philosophical analysis with part of a speech George W. Bush made to the Israeli Knesset:

"Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them that they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, and American senator declared: 'Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is: the false comfort of appeasement."

Beautifully said, Mr. Bush. I know the media loves to paint you as an idiot, but we know why they do this. They probably don't even know you gave speeches like this -- and if they did, they wouldn't report it. You sound way too intelligent.

Bottom line? No liberal wants to admit there are people in the world with whom you cannot negotiate. A good liberal chooses to believe that all people are equally good -- and that with the proper mediation, everyone can get along.

Good luck with that one, Mr. President.

    as i understand it, a liberal can use the english language. they don't retain the meanings of words. the word racist means non-anti white. IF you're not anti white, you're what the liberal calls a racist. what happened was the dubious democrats wanted to maintain racism. They succeeded. Same thing with terrorism. the word evil to the liberal means, anything that is against one's personal ego. But the true meaning of evil is the abjuration of justice, example, hypocrisy.

    See, the liberal is evil by the conservative view, (true view, the view that maintains the original definition of the word, the understood historical term.)

    The conservative is evil by the liberal because the conservative believes in reality and truth. the liberal is a liar. There's no liberal that doesn't look both ways when they cross the street. They even have a religious movement. Pure satanism. Might is right is their beleif. They teach this in school, and on the radio the television in movies in books in magazines.
