David Horowitz, in an interview….:
The enemies of having two sides to an argument are all called Liberals. So, the biggest misunderstanding about Liberalism is that in our time, liberals are imposters. They’re pretending to be Liberal. but they’re bigoted and intolerant.
Inside many Liberals is a totalitarian screaming to get out. They don’t like to have another point of view in the room that they don’t squash and the way they try to squash it is by character assassination and name calling. This is not a liberal mode of discourse. The kind of character assassination you see of every major conservative figure. …That is such an intolerant attitude. I mean nobody worthy of the name liberal should have such an attitude, but they do.
OMG – sounds just like the Pastor P. !!!
I know – just too much boldface, but I’m torn between the pure joy of his basic statement and the obvious parallels to the P.P.
Horowitz on Islam:
If you see Islam as parallel to Judaism, Christianity and Buddhism, you can’t have an intelligent discussion about it. This is a religion whose founding figure was not a carpenter or a man of peace, but a warrior. He was a bloodthirsty warrior who murdered people — and that’s part of the religious cannon.
[Um, that’s “canon”, for you language learners… “Cannon” is the one you shoot at others in war – with lots of little cannon balls…. ~tehMom]
