I'm NOT thankful for ...

Liberalism, secularism, Islamism and Communism: the most dangerous threats to world security and the American way of life.

Liberalism has become a dirty word in American politics and society. While conservatives proudly wear their label, liberals hide behind code words like “progressive” or call themselves “moderates.” The courageous and patriotic liberalism of President Kennedy (“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price,……” and “Ask not what your country can do for you….” ) has become the weakling liberalism of President Carter (who believed that “America had passed its apogee” ) and the valueless liberalism of President Clinton (who denied understanding the meaning of the word “is” and that oral sex is really sex.)

Liberal icon and MIT Professor Noam Chomsky, recently voted the world’s number one intellectual, believes that America is “the world’s leading terror state” and calls the Pentagon the “most hideous institution on earth.” It is the fault of discredited liberal policies that our schools are failing to educate minorities and that most black families are led by single mothers. How can one be thankful?

I’m not thankful for radical Secularism, the sect of liberalism that aims to create the “naked public square” denuded of any religious principles. For example, The War On Christmas by John Gibson demonstrates that a thorough and virulent anti-Christmas campaign is being waged today by liberal activists, ACLU fanatics, craven politicians, sinister agenda-driven educators, and witless media mavens.

But the war on Christmas is just one battle in the war on Christianity that has been waged by radical secularists with the help of the activist Supreme Court since the 1940s. It’s so bad that cases are now decided on the basis of an “Endorsement Test” that asks whether a public action may be construed as holding that religion is a “good thing.” Enforced government neutrality has been interpreted as “respect for the beliefs of self, unencumbered by tradition or morality.” Just do what feels good. No judgments allowed.

The ACLU is the panzer division of the secular movement. Did you know that the ACLU is defending the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), saying that although the organization champions the criminal rape of children, it has a right to do that under the free expression clause? Did you know that the ACLU endorses virtual child pornography and has defended the right of people to obtain real child porn? Or that the ACLU opposed the Minutemen protests at the border, obviously, a legitimate form of expression? (Bill O’Reilly)

I’m surely not thankful for Islamism (“fascism with the face of Islam”) or for Communism. Just like the Communists and the Nazis, the Islamists goal is world domination. In Tony Blankley’s thought-provoking new book,
The West's Last Chance: Will We Win the Clash of Civilizations? "The danger," he says, "is more than just bombs, it's also the cultural assertiveness of Islam."

Blankley poses the central question:

So what does the West do with a growing population of Islamists who have no desire to integrate into Western civilization - especially when some of these Muslims are true jihadists, when many Muslims would protect jihadists, and when many Muslims say they want to take over Europe by expanding Muslim population and culture?

Blankley argues the fate of Europe now hangs in the balance. "The threat of radical Islamists taking over Europe," he writes, "is every bit as great to the United States as was the threat of the Nazis taking over Europe in the 1940's."

And we dare not forget the persistent dangers posed by the Communist regimes in China and North Korea. In addition to their nuclear weapons and massive armies, these regimes are oppressors of basic human rights. For example, David Hawk, author of "Hidden Gulag: Exposing North Korea's Prison Camps" and his South Korean researchers obtained dozens of eyewitness accounts of persecutions of Christians. China is officially and aggressively atheist. Worship is allowed "only in government-controlled churches,… and Catholic Chinese who meet outside sanctioned churches are frequently harassed, fined, and sometimes sent to labor camps."

Americans have much for which to be thankful, and much to beware.

Great post Bill, but surely you meant to include Cuba on that list of Communist menaces, and Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela is working hard to add his country to that list as well.
