I believe that the most vilified, smeared, defamed personality of the past century is none other than Ayn Rand. This bestselling Russian-born American author and philosopher is utterly hated by the Left because of her unassailable arguments against altruism, self-sacrifice, mysticism, communism, and all forms of totalitarian ideologies. Ayn Rand was an uncompromising advocate of reason, individualism, and free market capitalism.
There’s only one admirable attribute of the left, and it is their ability to concoct very creative, emotional and sensational propaganda and lies to deceive the gullible and the non-critical thinker. Evidence or proof is not important to these half-wit creatures. To them, facts are negligible for the simple reason that reality is their number one enemy. When the left fabricate and publicize propaganda and smear campaigns, expect to see and hear emotional information and creatively packaged materials that appeal to emotion and people’s gullibility.
ad hominem attack is one of the best weapons of the left, while their defense mechanism consists of context-dropping, misrepresentation and strawman arguments. Take for example their current smear campaign against Ayn Rand. Since they cannot properly and intellectually refute Ayn Rand’s views without resorting to context-dropping, misrepresentation and strawman arguments, the left employ logical fallacies to smear her person and reputation.
The following are just some of the recently discovered ad hominem attacks being used by the totalitarian left against Ayn Rand:
Ayn Rand and her philosophy of Objectivism is a cult;
Ayn Rand promotes fascism;
Ayn Rand promotes corporatism;
Ayn Rand was a fan of a child serial killer named William Hickman;
Ayn Rand lived on welfare while advocating against it;
Ayn Rand was a sociopath and psychopath;
Ayn Rand and Alan Greenspan and the Illuminati plot to rule the world;

Donahue is really irritating so I don't know if I could watch that one. But I would say that if she talked about rationality and freedom of choice, that imitates her philosophy in her books.

This is funny because she is saying she supports Israel (well she is Jewish), yet people seem to hate her for some reason. Imagine if she supported Palestine! I'm just trying to say that certain people have an irrational hatred of her, possibly because she stands in the way of a one world government. Even though she supported Israel her other qualities make her undesireable for the global elite.

The choice today is mass death in the United States or mass death in the terrorist nations. Our Commander-In-Chief must decide whether it is his duty to save Americans or the governments who conspire to kill them.
