Does the American left love America? Does the Canadian left love Canada? Does the Jewish left love Israel? Does the left of every civilized nation love of its country? Of course they do. On one condition. That they agree to kill themselves first.
This Catch 22 is a suicide pact. For if one says that America, England or Israel are worthless unless they give the same rights to terrorists that they do to their citizens-- he is in effect saying that America, England and Israel are worthless either way, as he is only prepared to accept their worth if they demonstrate their willingness to destroy themselves.
It is the same thing as a man saying to a woman, "I will only love you, if you kill yourself." His statement contains the word "love" in it, but it is premised on her agreeing to cease to exist. Which means that he hates her existence, and loves the idea of her non-existence. So too the left love their countries.
This is the "progressive" approach toward the civilized world. They cannot love Britain, only a New Britain that agrees to flood itself with so many Muslim immigrants that it chokes and dies under their numbers. Only when Britain fills itself with her enemies, will they wave the Union Jack. Otherwise they will hiss and boo, shout and stomp, throw stones through windows and write passionate songs about how much they hate it. "I will only love you, if you kill yourself."
They cannot love Israel as a country that defends its citizens against its enemies. No, they can only love an Israel that tears off pieces of itself and offers them apologetically to the enemy. They cannot love an Israel that kills Muslim terrorists, only one that beats Jewish settlers. They cannot love an Israel that tries to raise fences to keep the killers away, only that demonstrates its willingness to let the terrorists kill as many Jewish children as they can, thereby demonstrating its nobility and willingness to die, rather than lift a hand to defend itself. Yes J-Street and its activists love Israel. "I will only love you, if you kill yourself."
And if Israel does not agree to kill itself, then they will lobby against it, smear it, poison it, visit it to throw stones, burn the fields of Jewish farmers and write popular plays denouncing it. This is their love. And if you deny it, you will be silenced. For they love Israel, there is no denying that. They have done everything possible to kill Israel, and if it still lives, it is thanks to the fragmented remains of the army, the few hundred thousand people living on the frontier hills in the face of terror, and the courageous few who still dare to speak out. But oh the left loves Israel. How dearly they love it. They positively love it to death.
And do you doubt for a second that the American left loves their country? Perish the thought. They love America. The America that legalizes illegal aliens, displaces its own citizens to make way for them and tears down all barriers against crime and terror. They love America, so long as it frees terrorists from prison, and when war is declared against it by a fanatical cult of mass murderers, it gives the murderers their day in court with lawyers and a trial. And when the terrorism continues, its leaders tell the people that the best thing for them to do is go out shopping and lead their lives as if terrorism doesn't exist. This is the America they love. "I will only love you, if you kill yourself."
This America, in which the Constitution is wielded to protect Islamic terrorists and a man who hates the country can make his office in the White House. Their America in which the lives of Americans are worthless but the comfortable treatment of captured terrorists is worth more than gold. In which all of the nation's history and values are viewed as nothing more than the brutal atrocities of greedy savages, while the brutal atrocities of newly arrived greedy savages are treated as heroic achievements worthy of celebration and praise... oh yes, this America they love.
This corpse of America, plastered in red, white and blue makeup to cover the wounds inflicted by its enemies. This charade in which they paint their deathwish for America in the colors of the flag and hold it up for everyone to salute. This political necrophilia is the America that they love. This is the Britain that they love. This is the Israel that they love. This is the Australia, the Denmark and Holland and France that they love. For they as much as their Islamic terrorist comrades are in love with death. But where Islam wants to cut off the head and bury the body, they want to take it to a costume ball, to hold it up and proclaim it as the New America, the New Britain, the Terra Nova of appeasement, surrender and death.
The Muslims proclaim a commandment to fight against the world until there is no one left who will deny that Allah is god and Mohammed his prophet. The Left proclaims an endless Jihad against the civilized world until there is no one left who values his country over any other country, who thinks of his home and family as his own, who takes home the wages he has worked for, and who sees himself as better than all the politicians and lawyers who presume to rule over him. Death to the Infidel, cries the Muslim. Death to the Greedy, the Selfish, the Capitalist, the Propertarian, the Nationalist, the Patriot, the Father, the Owner, the Voter, and a thousand such names, cries the Left. In this propaganda arms race, the Muslim is superior for he has defined his enemy as being all non-Muslims. The Left too needs a catchy name. A simple word that covers the spectrum of everyone who does not belong in their new order. Perhaps they should simply cry out, "Death to the Individual" and have done with it.
In their more honest moments, leftists will admit that they do not love America, only its potential. Its potential to be changed by them. Its hope for a future in which they rule over it. Its potential to be destroyed by them and remade into something new and awful. Moments like Michelle Obama proclaiming that she had never been proud of her country before this, are a chilling glimpse into the mind of the left that cannot love anything that is not an expression of its own ego. That cannot be help but be driven to destroy what it cannot possess.
A nation of individuals is not an idea the left can accept. It must be destroyed. Burned down and paved over to make way for a collective which the ego of the left rules over. And then the great pointless struggle of Ingsoc and Amersoc and Palesoc can begin, the vicious fight of a system against its own built in inadequacies and the limits of human control over a nation. The Will of the Left is the Will to Power. To rule as protectors of the people and destroy all that stands in their way. For the tyrant cannot accept any law he does not make and any man that does not bow to him. Funnel history into the trash bin. Burn the flag. And raise up a new one. Red as the blood you plan to spill. Black as your heart. Yellow as your own secret cowardice which drives you to power.
It is an old and bloody story with the left. It is an old and bloody story with the human race. "I will only love you, if you kill yourself," says the man to the woman. His meaning is that he cannot love her if there is any part of her that is not a part of his ego. Only when she has destroyed herself for him, can he love her, because there is nothing of her left anymore.
This is the insane face of the left. The skull beneath its skin. They will love America and England. They will embrace Canada and Israel. They will adore Israel and Australia. When they are all dead.
