Liberalism

This is from liberal columnist Camille Paglia:

“Yes, something very ugly has surfaced in contemporary American liberalism, as evidenced by the irrational and sometimes infantile abuse directed toward anyone who strays from a strict party line. Liberalism, like second-wave feminism, seems to have become a new religion for those who profess contempt for religion. It has been reduced to an elitist set of rhetorical formulas, which posit the working class as passive, mindless victims in desperate need of salvation by the state. Individual rights and free expression, which used to be liberal values, are being gradually subsumed to worship of government power.”

A Question

What will the peaceniks say the first time Obama sends troops into harm’s way?

My guess is that they will either say nothing, or they will somehow attempt to justify it.

Fannie Mae Flashback

The Democrats caused this mess.  Why are we allowing them to attempt to fix it?

Pass this on to as many people as possible.

The Martyrdom of Mark Elrod

All of us here at Politics & Culture are crying a river of tears over Mark Elrod’s announcement that he will be making his blog private. He and all his cronies are lamenting the fact that he is pretty much being forced to do this because his employer (Harding University) is so close-minded. All his disciples are also doing their best to kiss his butt in an effort to be invited to his new private blog.

In all this, Elrod is trying very hard to play the martyr. But as they say in his part of the country, “That dog won’t hunt.”

He works at a Christian university that is conservative theologically and politically. Did he really think he could publicly endorse things like gay marriage in such an environment with no repercussions? Of course not. He knows what he’s doing — he’s stroking his own ego, trying to make the Harding University administration look bad, and perhaps even setting himself up for another job elsewhere.

I’ll bet that Facebook groups like “Free Mark Elrod” and “Stop Censorship at Harding” are already being formed. We were going to comment on his post today, but alas, Politics & Culture was banned from his blog a while back. So much for “dissent in a public forum.”

The good people over at The Moratorium Site will be weighing in on The Martyrdom of Mark Elrod later today.

Stay Tuned!

===============

Update: Burt Hollandsworth, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Harding University, made this brilliant observation regarding The Martyrdom of Mark Elrod: “I’m moving to China. There’s more freedom of speech there than in Searcy”

Update 2: Elrod removed the Trackback to this blog post from his comment section.  I guess I over-estimated his ability to deal with critical thinking or dissent in a public forum.

Toddlers Beware!

This is what happens when liberals rise to positions of power and influence. We get warnings about Sesame Street DVDs.

Sigh…

Even More Liberal Hypocrisy

John Edwards charged $55,000 to speak to college students about poverty.  It is hard to believe, but it is true.  Read about it HERE.

Remember, Edwards is the guy who has said he wants to remove the financial barriers that keep kids from going to college.  Well, John — charging a college $55,000 to give a speech is not helping matters!

More Liberal Hypocrisy

In a recent interview, presidential candidate John Edwards said, “I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs…”

Hmmm….. I wonder how many poor people Mr. Edwards is planning to house in his new estate?
