Dennis Prager: The left is worth nothing: "About 60 percent of the Iraqi people went to vote despite the fact that every Iraqi voter risked his or her life and the lives of their children, whose throats the Islamic fascists threatened to slit. Yet, the Left continues to label the war for Iraqi democracy 'immoral' while praising the tyrant of Cuba.
Leftists do so for the same reason they admired Ho Chi Minh and Mao Tse-tung and condemned American arms as the greatest threat to world peace during and after the Cold War. The Left 'does not know the difference between good and evil.' And that is why it is worth nothing."
Amen. See my next post. The problem with liberals is this: they have no transcendent idea of law and morality. They recognize no God except one who is fully enclosed in the history of the world, one who could not give the Ten Commandments. They certainly cannot recognize that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, One who came down from above. There is no "above" for liberals. Whatever God there is cannot speak except in the history and consciousness of the human race. Because of this denial of transcendent law, every human experience is equally valid--and equally invalid. Who can say that Muhammed's Koran is not equal to Paul's Romans? Why cannot the religious excitement of the Hindu be equal to the regeneration of John Huss? By what standard do we evaluate truth?

These nothing-people are therefore incapable of discerning the difference in the value of a life compared to another. They will not blink at the murder of innocents in the womb, but wax hysterical over the most just deaths of Saddam's most evil sons. They cannot see any difference between the rather mild humiliation of thugs and socio-paths by US Marines in military prisons in Iraq and the rape and murder houses of Saddam. The very idea of evil is a concept they reject and they reject those who think that such a concept could be valid.

But why should we be surprised? These are the same people who defended communism and the wholesale slaughter of the gangster regimes of the USSR, Cuba, Red China, North Korea in the 20th centuries, just as their political ancestors defended Hitler and racism. Why shold we trust their moral judgment now? John Kerry was not able to know if the Iraqi war was worth it until "we know how it turns out." So much for moral clarity!
