The True Motivation of Some Democrats
Every once in a while I start asking myself the same question, “What can be the motivation of someone like Senator Leahy, who was tossed off the Senate Intelligence Committee for leaking classified information, or of Senator Durbin, who compared Guantanamo to Hitler’s death camps and called our soldiers, Nazis?”. Is it really just politics that drives them – a desire to regain power at any cost – even at the expense of the security of our country or of the lives of our soldiers? They certainly are not stupid men; they are US Senators; they must understand the consequences of their acts.
Then my mind thinks back and, in particular, remembers the wisdom imparted by Dinesh D’Souza in his book, “What’s So Great About America”. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand better the attitudes and motivations of the hard left in this country and in Europe. I also recommend giving this book to any young person whose mind is being polluted by public school teachers and by college professors like Ward Churchill, who are teaching their students to hate their country.
These people, like Senators Leahy and Durbin, want to cut their country down to size, and they are supported by millions of leftists who agree with them. They believe that it is not ‘fair’ that one country, ours, should be so powerful, so prosperous and so free. They believe in ‘one world’; that is, they believe everything should be shared equally, regardless of effort or circumstances, and they do not believe that American power should be used to advance or defend American interests. They believe in the old communist maxim, “to each according to their needs, from each according to their abilities”. They do not understand that a combination of freedom, capitalism and initiative built this country, and that courage kept us free; they believe that we became great through luck and oppression. They believe that American culture is of no greater value than the culture of a remote tribe of cannibals – hence their concern with pushing the poison of multiculturalism on us.
Yes, politics is one reason why they obstruct our efforts to defend ourselves, but the main reason is that they want us to fail. We should all remember this as we listen to and watch these scalawags pretend to be concerned about eavesdropping on al-Queda contacts with accomplices in our country, and when they insult our military and call for our retreat from Iraq. If you are thinking, “Don’t they understand what would happen if they were successful?” – my answer is, “When has any present-day liberal ever worried about the unintended consequences of his actions?”.
One final point, if anyone tries to tell you that the USA got where it is because of our size, our great natural resources and our two-ocean isolation from the rest of the world, tell them about Argentina, a huge country with immense natural resources, bounded by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans – and which is the laughing stock of the world.
