The End of Columbus Day
Long ago I solved the mystery of why
liberals supported such foolishness like open borders, political
correctness, multiculturalism and the end of Columbus Day. I learned
that their world view was that we citizens of the USA had such a
wonderful country because we had stolen resources from all the rest
of the world. It was up to liberals to right these wrongs by sharing
our wealth, celebrating other cultures while destroying our own –
and, in general, cutting us down to size. To be sure, there is a
fair amount of self-hatred in their thinking, but they have some
outdated facts on their side.
Like most developed countries, like Great Britain, France, Germany, Holland, Portugal and Spain, there was a time when might made right, colonialism was God's work, and slavery (which still exists in some countries) was an accepted practice. We were more successful than most, but the problem is: those days are gone forever, and this is still a very dangerous world.
As I ponder the strange reactions by the Obama Administration to the dual crises of an ebola epidemic possibly developing in our country and the rise of ISIS, a powerful force dedicated to destroying America and all things smacking of enlightened western culture, I ask myself, “Is this liberal world view and self-hatred at work here also?”.
Are we supposed to share the sufferings of the third world because of our past sins? What other explanation is there for the nonsense being put forth as to why travel from the ebola-stricken countries has not been shut down? Why has the response to the threat from ISIS been so lame and so late? Is it from a view that they should be left to work things out – even at the expense of a future confrontation with an enemy of barbarian death-cultists armed with nuclear weapons?
