I don't consider myself to be particularly liberal, though I do agree with some leftist ideology (and some conservative and libertarian ideology as
well); I think the left is just as hypocritical and stupid as the right, they just present everything with an air of elitism while the right presents
things with a touch of hyperbole and imbecility.
I'll try to explain my understanding of their ideology to the best of my ability.
1) Homosexuality and Muslims - Devote Muslims kill homosexuals for being homosexual (fact). Yet, liberals support both the Homosexual agenda in
America as well as Muslim Sharia Law. What gives?
I don't support Sharia Law; I find it barbaric and idiotic. I do support freedom of religion, however, and that includes the Islamic faith.
As for homosexuality, I support personal freedom in the form of sexual orientation and practice; as long as both parties are willing and nobody is
being wronged, I see no reason to persecute and discriminate against homosexuals.
2) Racism – (Hot topic these days…I know…I will tread lightly) It seems liberals keep the term “racists” alive. Why are vocal black
democrats given praise by the left (Sharpton, Jackson, Rangel, Shiela Jackson Lee, etc) while vocal black conservatives (Clarence Thomas, Alan West,
Herman Cain, etc) called names by the left?
This is where hypocrisy comes into play. Although it could be argued that the left praises other leftists, regardless of race, and ridicules the
right, again, regardless of race. Acceptance of race is not to be confused with supplication; in fact, supplicating to someone because of the color of
his or her skin is racist. If we are to battle racism, we are to treat all people equally, regardless of skin color and place of birth.
Also, why do liberals continue to promote social programs that enslave blacks at poverty level? Left policies have NEVER led to black
prosperity (Chicago, Detroit, ALL of California, etc are good examples) yet they get the majority of the black vote. What does the left offer that
should inspire black Americans and keep their vote? I think the tide is turning, by the way. This video is a good illustration of what I’ve
It's not the blacks, but all the poor in America who are targeted and made victims to these failed social programs. The problem lies within a
crumbling capitalist system which does nothing to promote a fair economic playing field for all people. This is why the "American dream" is a myth.
As for the black vote, blacks are drawn to the left because the right has forged itself a reputation and connotation of being racist. Regardless of
why this is, blacks like the welfare programs which democrats provide them with. It should also be noted that there are many ignorant, racist, and
bigoted blacks in America. Just because they are black does not make them any more human (and prone to the same flawed ways) than whites.
3) Pro Women yet Anti Conservative Women – Liberals say they’re for women’s rights yet they destroyed Sarah Palin and her family in
2008. Liberals love Hillary but what did they have to say about Condoleezza?? Have liberals ever denounced all of the chauvinist remarks about
This goes back to hypocrisy and leftist favoritism. It has little to do with women and more to do with political ideology as well as drawing support.
Palin did little to prevent ridicule; I mean come on, she signs up for a reality show and shoots a deer out of a helicopter...
How can anyone
expect to be taken seriously when they don't take themselves seriously?
4) Pro Abortion yet Anti-Death Penalty – Need I say more on this issue?
Abortion and the Death Penalty are very differing subjects. Abortion is relatively cheap, the death penalty costs more than life imprisonment.
Abortion does not revolve around the ruling of a corrupt and incompetent justice system, the death penalty does.
The problem with the death penalty is that a) it is VERY COSTLY, b) it's an irrefutable punishment. If our justice system actually brought people to
"Justice," rather than selling itself out to the highest bidder, I might support the death penalty. Until then, I'd rather we don't risk killing
innocent people who could not afford to buy their innocence.
By the way if you want a good book regarding the death penalty, check out The Ride: The Jeffrey Curley Murder and Its Aftermath. It's about Jeffrey
Curley, an 11 year old who was killed then raped by a sick pedophile, and his father's struggle with bringing his murderers to justice (the one who
was in the wrong place at the wrong time got the death penalty, the one who killed then had sex with his child's corpse got a few years and will be
released very soon). It changed my view on the death penalty, it may influence yours.
