Not just Leftist

Reader comment on item: [Bureaucratic Leftism and] Globalthink's Perils

If this so called NWO is just the creation of the left and the UN, then how do you explain the large number of Muslim countries that seem to also belong to this group? They certainly do not subscribe to women's, gay or human rights in general. I think that the old left /right paradigm is a poor fit. It seems to me that the divide lies more along racial & cultural lines than anything else.

"White" European values and "western" cultures are what's being de-valued by the UN. That some of the biggest detractors of these same values happen to be Europeans and Americans isn't any surprise.

The blame "Whitey" game is now 4 decades old and growing in strength every day. We see it most clearly manifested in this country these days with the growing reparations movement and, most dramatically of all, with the UN's utter hatred and contempt for Israel which it sees as a "European/ western" colony.

What's most interesting is how many European politicians and even Israeli pols have been sucked into this "mind-set." Self-Hatred and self loathing are the symptoms of a weakened and stumbling culture and our adversaries having no such self-doubts feed on this cynicism.

But we have enemies on both the left and the right who hate our values and subscribe to their own versions of a NWO.

Al Queda (anything but leftist) is a good example of such a group. Of course in its case the first people they'd shoot after creating their NWO would be the UN and most of its staff.
