Jennifer,

Indeed they are cowards - these small "l" liberals who have stood up for communism during the 1960s and now stand up in favor of Islamism. They criticise America because they can do so without fear of reprisal - America grants them the freedom to criticise it and absorbs the criticism. But try and criticise even the most cretinous and unstable coutry in the world like Iran and you will be called a racist or accused of "not having respect for a world much older than our own" by some postmodern idiot like "Hanoi" Jane Fonda herself.

Likewise they invoke blasphemies against the Christian faith turning up at rallies with vile slogans like "euthanise Christians" they would never dare invoke similar mantras against their Islamist allies who would likely respond with violence. The worst that they suffer from the Christian faith is a frown from an Archbishop.

Gravely offensive also is monopolising an auditorium for a neoconservative speaker and then marching out on mass - though protests against others like David Horowitz have been rather more vocal and he has been prevented from speaking. By the looks of things this gives us a view of the political composition of the campus and how the illusion of liberal multiculturalism and its false moral relativistic universalism has so infected the wests centres of higher learning. It looked like around 80% of the auditorium walked out about an 80/20 split then between moonbats and people who actually are prepared to listen. Not a sound foundation for a future.

This indoctrination has an effect - you can see in the recent Australian election a massive swing leftwards fueled by the entry of a new generation of Australians into the voting age who had come through an education system that doesn't require students to learn a single fact or develop a single skill. It merely requires that they have the right ideological orientation. This video is a testament to the fact that over the other side of the Pacific the same forces are at work.

These people will never cure a disease or fight a war for their countries (hell they don't even bloody breed) they will simply white ant away until there is nothing left. They have no particular loyalty to their countries institutions such as the rule of law unless this is something that they can use to free their Islamist allies. This leads to paradoxical situations such as the Democrats objecting to the use of Tribunals to convict and detain dangerous terrorists (and around a third of those who were released from Guantanamo Bay have been reapprehended on the battlefield) because these tribunals deprive our enemies of their common law rights. Then turning around and using their own tribunals like the FCC to gag neoconservative commentators like Michael Savage and perhaps if they get complete control of this tribunal they will go after Robert Spencer and Daniel Pipes. In Australia with all states and the Federal Government being controlled by the equivalent of the Democrats (the ALP) it is likely that a tribunal led assault on the freedom to be a neoconservative will be launched all over the country.

We are all pilgrims in an unholy land.
