Reader comment on item: Harvard Loves Jihad

Submitted by Raymond Low (United States), Jun 12, 2002 at 17:55

I agree with the article "Harvard Loves Jihad". Unfortunately, you are right.

I'm still reeling from the fact that I consider myself a liberal and the majority of people calling themselves"liberal" or "politically correct" are "dripping" with contempt for everything American. To these people, America is to blame, America is the oppressor and so on. It has gotten to a point where I have had to relinquish the "liberal" label from myself. It's beginning to leave a foul taste and starting to be associated with anti-Western or anti-American or anti-Judeo-Christian views.

Imagine what I have to go through as a resident of San Francisco? There are many of them out here. Anti-Semitism is also popular these days.

Although I don't consider myself a "right-wing" conservative, I have found myself strangely agreeing with them since 9-11 and since the escalation of the Middle East crisis.

This is my resolve - I will remain free of any labels, withhold all financial support to liberal organizations and reevaluate who I support politically. Enough is enough.

I may disagree with some American policies but I know when and how to show my love for this great country.
