Dear liberals: Conservatives are not your enemy. The left is.

Dennis Prager

Are you a LEFTIST or a LIBERAL? Do you know the difference? Many people confuse Liberals with Leftists. John F. Kennedy was a Liberal - Nancy Pelosi is a Leftist. Some examples:

RACE: Liberals think skin color is irrelevant - Leftists are preoccupied with skin color. Liberals are committed to racial integration, while Leftists support the existence of black dormitories and separate black graduations on university campuses.

CAPITALISM: Liberals have always been pro-capitalism, which has freed billions from poverty, while Leftists oppose capitalism and advocate socialism, which has destroyed economies wherever it is tried.

NATIONALISM: Liberals believe in the nation-state, whether their nation was the United States, Great Britain or France. Leftists oppose nationalism because Leftism is rooted in race, gender, and class solidarity, not national solidarity.

VIEW OF AMERICA: Liberals venerate America, while Leftists (foreign and domestic) loathe America. Watch American films from the 1930s through the 1950s and you will be watching overtly patriotic, America-celebrating films -- virtually all produced, directed and acted in by liberals. Liberals understand that America is imperfect, but they agree with a liberal icon named Abraham Lincoln that America is "the last best hope of earth." To Leftists, America is a racist, sexist, violent, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic country.

FREE SPEECH: No one was more committed than American liberals to the famous statement "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." Leftists now lead the suppression of free speech under the pretext of opposing hate speech. But protecting the right of person A to say what person B deems objectionable is the entire point of free speech.

WESTERN CIVILIZATION: Liberals love Western civilization. Leftists like Jesse Jackson chanted at universities like Stanford: "Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Western civ has got to go." Leftists argue that Western civilization is not superior and is simply a euphemism for white supremacy.

JUDAISM & CHRISTIANITY: Liberals knew and appreciated the Judeo-Christian roots of American civilization. Except for Islam, Leftists hate religion.
