From the Pen of David Horowitz: October 9 2009

October 9, 2009


Leftists are in fact the enemies and oppressors of women, children, gays, minorities and the poor and conservatives should never confront them without reminding them of this fact

    How true! Tragically, those who are oppressed by liberals are their staunchist supporters. Blacks, Jews, women and children are all slaves of their master manipulator and willingly march toward the slaughter-house while defiantly being opposed to those who have been trying to save them. The sheep going over the cliff one after the other while all the time praising the wolves who killed their shepherds.

    Too bad Derbyshire didn’t include the Horowitz quote in this exchange with Alan Colmes. I guess that would fall under “destroying the village to save it” (i.e. taking away a woman’s right to vote for her own good as she would most likely do something silly with it).


    National Review Writer Takes Stand Against Female Suffrage

    Posted by Steve Benen, Washington Monthly at 2:22 PM on September 30, 2009.

    Just so we’re clear, a leading conservative writer at one of the premier conservative political outlets, argued publicly against a woman’s right to vote.


    The National Review writer initially said “women lean hard to the left,” which isn’t necessarily true, and certainly isn’t a rationale for denying women the right to participate in democracy. So, Colmes pressed further. Faiz Shakir posted a transcript:

    DERBYSHIRE: Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed. But I’ll say this — if it were to be, I wouldn’t lose a minute’s sleep.

    COLMES: We’d be a better country if women didn’t vote?

    DERBYSHIRE: Probably. Don’t you think so?

    COLMES: No, I do not think so whatsoever.

    DERBYSHIRE: Come on Alan. Come clean here [laughing].

    COLMES: We would be a better country? John Derbyshire making the statement, we would be a better country if women did not vote.

    DERBYSHIRE: Yeah, probably.

    He added that the United States “got along like that for 130 years,” and added that the Civil Rights Act may also lack value because you “shouldn’t try to force people to be good.”

    Just so we’re clear, a leading conservative writer at one of the premier conservative political outlets, argued publicly against a woman’s right to vote and against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    It’s extraordinary. Generally, conservative media figures try to maintain the pretense of sanity in public. I’m afraid that’s no longer the case.

    What a load of horse crap. It has been conservatives, over the years and from various ilks, who have often opposed equal rights for minorities, woman, and social justice for the poor and the outcast. The Left has always represented a desire for egalitarianism, especially along the vein of American egalitarian, which is represented by the century-old progressive movement.

    David Horowitz — repeating one lie at a time. He’s merely a useful idiot — always has been since he took a “right turn” in his politics — for those who hold the real rein of powers.

    And if anyone is a sheeple, it’s the people who listen these right-wing pundits without conducting their own research. It’s like Glenn Beck talking about Thomas Paines’ “Common Sense” while ignoring his deistic “Age of Reason” pamphlet. After all, the ideals that these people represent are traditional liberal ideals, not conservative ideals. But in their attempts to destroy liberalism, they are merely lying to their audience as they co-opt the philosophies of that Western tradition.

    “…in (conservatives’) attempts to destroy liberalism…”. Baculus, that is really funny.

    In the long run, Modern Liberals will destroy themselves. The left has a deep love of tyrants and oppressors, and they will run to the arms of the most bloodthirsty tyrant they can find.

    Witness Obummer’s dance with Ah’madirtyjerk and the mullahs.

    Witness Obummer’s trading erotic glances with Chavez.

    Witness Obummer’s cutting our middle European allies off at the knees to go to the prom with Putin.

    More examples to follow.
