THE PROGRESSIVE WORLD: AN ANTECHAMBER TO EVIL, by Melanie Phillips
For primary day, here is a piece by Melanie Phillips. It won't help with today's voting, but it will make you think about the upcoming November elections, the most important presidential election since the 2016 elections.
As Barr observed: “This is the first time in my memory that the leaders of one of our great two political parties — the Democratic Party — are not coming out and condemning mob violence and the attack on federal courts. Why can’t we just say, you know, violence against federal courts has to stop? Can we hear like that?”
Jews are directly in the cross-hairs of those who are intent on overthrowing western values. That’s because Judaism, mediated through Christianity, gave the west its civilized moral precepts.
So attacks on Jews are symbiotically connected to left-wing attacks on western civilization.
Of course, there are still decent Democrats and those who remain sympathetic to Israel. But in general, the Democrats, like Britain’s Labour Party and other progressive folk, have drunk the anti-western Kool-Aid.
The tragedy is that so many Jews are incapable of seeing this. So they’ll continue to vote Democrat, just as they’ll continue to read The New York Times.
Melanie Phillips is British, but the larger issues she points out from across the pond affect us here in Michigan. How can they not?
