The Evolution of Socialist Strategies

Dr. Sanity has a big post up tonight citing Cliff May's piece at National Review, "Romancing the Jihad: Why Are So Many on the Left Enamored With Islamism?" But what I like at Dr. Sanity's entry is this graphic she grabbed from Stephen Hicks', Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault:

But check the post for the analysis and argument ... she's always a pleasure to read: "The Political Left: United in Hate With America's Foes."

Hat Tip:
Memeorandum.

Thanks Derek...

Maybe you'll switch to the GOP...

One thing that always mystifies me, yet convinces me that the right is lacking in fundamental brainpower, is their total belief that the left wants to hijack environmental issues to achieve some sort of power. Rather than, I don't know, save the fucking planet.

Seriously, this is one issue that just destroyed the right in the last election. The "drill baby drill" mantra merely highlighted the dereliction of ideas on the right, rather than seizing on the opportunities, as the left is doing now.

Yet another reason the party is dying a slow, agonizing death.

As for Islamic sympathy, I don't get that. But again, we cannot judge an entire religion on the actions of a few. We need to launch some education missiles into the heart of these countries.

I'm looking forward to the high energy prices that Americans, many of whom are unemployed, will need to pay if the left has its way. What's more interesting is the amount of so-called green house gases China will emit into the atmosphere.

It isn't just academic attacks on thought and speech, but government attacks on same as well.

Read H. R. 1913, which is aiming to make thought an actual crime in this country:
