What We See and Why We See It
First, What We See:
Democrat leaders become more radicalized
Sher Zieve, September 15, 2007, Renew America, (Excerpt)
”Once long...long ago there existed a Democrat Party in the United States of America that truly believed that country should and must survive. It believed that the reasons for the country's existence were worth protecting. The members of this political party also believed that it should assist in defending that country and its citizens against all those who would attack and attempt to destroy it. They supported the men and women who enlisted in the US' citizen-military and some of them had even served in one of its branches. But, that was another time — in another reality. That political party and its members no longer exist.
Instead of the once pro-American group, a new Democrat Party emerged. This one was patently anti-American. This new Democrat Party is being directed and run by the radical leftist-funded-by-anti-USA multi-millionaires and billionaires group MoveOn.org. This group demands unwavering obedience of all Democrat politicians to its anti-war/anti-American tenets. As MoveOn.org heavily funds Democrats and their Party (claiming ownership of said party), it believes it has the right to call all of the shots. So, it has largely replaced multiple Democrat Party groups. This is the same radical group whose founder Eli Pariser said of the Democrat Party in 2004: "Now it is our Party. We bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back!" This same extremist organization has run a full-page Ad in the decidedly leftist New York Times that accuses General David Petraeus of being a traitor to his country — for doing the job and providing the report that Congressional "leaders" sent him to Iraq to affect. Congress also required that General Petraeus write and deliver a report to it on his progress.
However, because the multi-decorated General Petraeus has been successful in his mission — that of beginning the stabilization of much of Iraq — Democrats are furious. They weren't expecting it to provide information of anything less than a disaster. It appears that they didn't think even this General could or would accomplish his goals. But, he is accomplishing those goals. As the Democrats-up-for-election view any success in Iraq as a potential death-knell for them, the USA must lose this war — in order for the Democrats to win. Democrat politicians — just as all of our enemies from without and within — have now become overtly anti-American. As an example, not one of the current Democrat presidential candidates has condemned the MoveOn.org Ad. With their silence, Democrat leaders are tacitly approving of MoveOn.orgs's character assassination of General Petraeus — the same General that they had applauded and recommended fir the task just months ago. Note: To Democrats, General Petraeus' success has bred contempt within, apparently, all of them.
Leaders of the Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy and Zell Miller mold are no longer allowed in the increasingly fanatical Democrat Party. It is now firmly (with no hope of changing back to any semblance of normalcy) become the US political party of socialists, communists, radicals of various persuasions and even Islamist terrorists. As an example, on 7 September Al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin-Laden criticized Democrats for not doing more to stop the Iraq war so that they [al-Qaeda] could take over that country. In 2006, bin-Laden urged — even threatened — America to vote for Democrats.” Sher Zieve
Now, Why We See It:

“Is it any coincidence that the two entities American liberals probably hate most are organized religion and our military? Liberal groups like Moveon.org run ads disparaging military men of honor like General David Petraeus while folks like the ACLU and the "Reverend" Barry Lynn have made the elimination of God in public their life's work.
But what do these groups have in common? While they all preach a gospel of socialism, secularism and sexual worship, the main driving force behind those who denigrate our military and religious practices is egotism. They just can't wrap their minds around the concept that there is something bigger than themselves.
Soldiers, sailors and airmen voluntarily risking their lives for others and, even worse, Catholic nuns and priests throwing away their lives by consecrating them to God and their fellow men -- to the extent that they are willing to forgo the one, true purpose of life: sex -- must seem the acme of insanity to leftist naval gazers.
To them and their way of thinking, the notion that "greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends," is an incomprehensibility. Religious and military vocations have discipline and obedience at their core; an odious combination for those of the Me Generation of the 1960s. It's not difficult to see why the "never trust anyone over thirty" crowd has always been scandalized by this.
Having spurned the authority of their parents and responsibility for their country's defense, the next steps on the road to Utopia were a snap. For them, police officers were "pigs," God was dead and our armed personnel were reduced to being merely the murderous arm of the shadowy, "military-industrial complex."
