The issues raised in the Dr.Pipes' article once again beg the singular, paramount and fundamental question- Is modern Liberalism the true cause of the Hate America groundswell?

Lawrence Auster,author of the," Path to National Suicide" (An Essay on Immigration&Multiculturalism), cogently argues "Once liberal tolerance rather than traditional morality becomes our guiding principle we must ultimately tolerate the presence of evil...including the evil of exterminationist anti semitism..." Auster further posits.."Politically correct America wages hysterical crusades against ethnic slurs or sexual comments by private individuals, while shrugging its shoulders at criminality & possible treason by an ex President if he is seen as a sufficiently tolerant & inclusive person. Thus the modern liberal regime bans the merest breath of Christian religion in the Public schools while subsidizing student clubs devoted to Witchcraft. Thus the mainstream media routinely attack the oppressive & racist police while ignoring the criminality of the criminals the police are oppressing..."

All this no doubt in service of tolerance and inclusion at any price and in all circumstances even if it entails supporting tyranny,oppression &wholesale slaughter. What we have here is a failure to comprehend and see the shadow of the phoenix rising and seeking to envelope free societies in the twisted inversions of absolutism and ideological rigidity. Consequently, America & Israel in the twisted vortex that is the modern liberal mind and according once again to Auster, "..It follows that Israelis are the racist oppressors who must be condemned at every turn even when defending themselves from the most savage terrorism in the history of the world while the Palestinians are oppressed and whose every act, no matter how murderous & depraved must be rationalized,excused or outright supported".
