Prager: The Left Is Evil—And Liberals Keep Voting for Them

As I have noted repeatedly, liberalism and leftism have virtually nothing in common. In fact, leftism is the enemy of liberalism—as a handful of liberals such as former New York Times writer Bari Weiss, former Young Turk Dave Rubin and others have come to recognize.

The Left has never believed in free speech and has suppressed dissent wherever it has assumed power. Free speech is a pillar of liberalism, and it has always embraced dissent.

The Left rejects the anti-racist ideal of colorblindness. Colorblind is the liberal racial ideal.

The Left supports racial segregation—such as all-black dorms and separate black graduations. Liberals have always advocated racial integration.

The Left has always loathed capitalism. Liberals were always major advocates of capitalism—recognizing that only capitalism has lifted billions of people out of poverty.

The Left has always been anti-Israel. Liberals have always been fervent supporters of Israel.

The Left has always held America in contempt. Liberals loved this country. A liberal wrote “God Bless America.” No leftist would write such a song.

Leftists want to defund the police. No liberal does.

The list of liberal-Left differences is as long as the list of left-wing positions.

Yet, it is liberals who keep the Left in power. Were it not for the liberal vote, the Left would have no power.

Why do liberals vote Left? Why do liberals vote for those who have contempt for virtually everything they, the liberals, hold dear?

The question is all the more apt given that it is conservatives who protect virtually every liberal value. It is conservatives who seek to preserve free speech, racial integration, love of America, a strong Israel and capitalism.

So why do liberals vote for the Left, for the very people who hold liberals and their values in contempt?

There are two primary reasons.

One is brainwashing. Liberals are brainwashed from childhood into believing that the right is their enemy and that “pas d’ennemis a gauche” (there are “no enemies on the left”). That is why there is no left-wing position, no matter how destructive or vile, that could move a liberal to vote Republican or identify with conservatives.

The second reason is fear. Liberals fear they will lose friends and even family if they do not vote Democrat or if they publicly criticize the Left. And this is not an irrational fear.

America and the West are being destroyed by the Left. But this destruction of the universities, the high schools, art and music, journalism and freedom itself could not take place were it not for liberals.

The fate of America and the West lies largely in the hands of liberals. There are simply not enough leftists to destroy our most revered institutions. They need liberals to serve as fellow travelers to accomplish their ends.

Should the American experiment fail, and it may, that profile in lack of courage, the liberal, will have made it possible.

  1. The American experiment has already failed, we are just waiting for the fat lady to sing. This is not an issue of policy differences it is a moral clarity issue.

    There is another reason that so many luberals vote Democrat that has been expressed to me as the primary reason they will not vote anytthing but Democrat. The Democrat party is the only party that does anything for them, i.e. gives them stuff.

  2. We’ve always had a few of these crazy leftists but they were so few in number that they received no credence and were kept in the closet. Today they have become widespread and the media has gone nuts (woke), too, so they are constantly in the news and are trying to take over our country. May God strike them down or give us the means to eliminate this hateful movement.

  3. It is time to choose sides, not political but the side of good or evil. We know evil when we see it, yet we choose to ignore or dismiss it as we do not want to get involved or “rock the boat” per say. It is time to fight for your lives and souls from those trying to harm and elimate you. It is time to stand your ground, push back and then search out and eradicate all those that are evil. Evil must be destroyed lest it overcome us all.

  4. Leftists, not liberals. A liberal believes in human Liberty and these Leftists utterly hate Liberty. They are the exact opposite of liberal.

  5. Great article. The only rational conclusion from this excellent comparison is that anyone who values traditionalism, individualism, and Constitutionalism must attack the liberals as hard as possible. If they are closest to such true American values, then it is they who must change. Leftists are pure enemies and are beyond swaying. Liberals must be smacked as hard as possible ASAP to get them to clearly look at what is best for them and their values. Put on the brass knuckles! (P.S. the left understands this and this is why they hammer the liberals to keep them in line. We must hit harder.)
