It was the American “New” left who empowered the Viet Cong and later the Khumer Rouge. They pulled on the ears of Congress and stopped further American intervention in a war that was being won. They weren’t so much interested in stopping the war as in making sure that the US & South Vietnam didn’t prevail. They wanted the Viet Cong to win, and supported them to the hilt. The likes of Noam Chomsky, Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda did whatever they could to humiliate & embarrass not only our troops but our nation. Taking up the Make love not war banner, the left screamed and raged. They rioted and demonstrated, always playing the part of the good guys. They vilified the flag while enticing children to do drugs by making getting high the cool thing to do. They bullied and threatened those who didn’t support their agenda.
They were relentless in their push to end the war until America gave in. A peace with honor treaty was signed and America left South Vietnam to its fate. When US troops moved out, the Viet Cong moved in and helpless peasants, the very people the left claimed to love so much, were subjected to a terror reminiscent of Soviet Russia during the 1930’s.
Vietnam wasn’t the only land to be shattered. Cambodia suffered, too. It suffered so much, nearly ¼ of its population was wiped out. The left barely noticed. They got what they wanted. Their brothers prevailed and nothing could have made them feel better. Time when by and the genocides of Vietnam and Cambodia were forgotten. It was as if they never existed because the left made it so. Their plights were of no use so they were caste aside like old furniture.
For a long time, the left was quiet but they were very busy- undermining American exceptionalism, the church and the traditional family. Generation after generation, children were softened and sissified, their parents unwilling to speak out against the left’s anti Christian/American propaganda for fear of being called a racist, sexist or bigot.
In 2000, something unexpected happened, the American people voted for the lesser of two evils. They choose Bush over Gore and the left went nuts. They were like rabid animals foaming at the mouth-screaming foul over Gore’s loss. Then 9-ll came and the Iraq war, followed soon after, and the left was back in business- fueling anti war fervor. For over a decade, they worked overtime to end the war in Iraq. They wanted the troops out. They demonstrated. They screamed and yelled. They got in people’s faces. Finally after 2 agonizing terms of George W, they elected one of their own into the presidency. Once again, the left got what they wanted. The one thing that the left knows how to do is play people and most especially the American people. Leftists could care less about war or about people dying. They could care less about young American soldiers. Their only concern today is for their brother, Islam. They shamelessly promoted that brother as “the religion of Peace”.
Through media, entertainment, and schools the left forced its propaganda on an already gutless society, pretending to want peace. BHO gave them what they wanted. So the troops were removed from Iraq even though Iraq was not ready and probably never would be. The left knew it, too but they weren’t interested in ending the war. Once more, they wanted their brothers to win. Starving people, terrified babies, little girls forced to marry grown men, churches destroyed, society broken and an ancient people on the run has no effect on the left. They are proud just like they were when Vietnam fell and the killing fields of Cambodia stank; their brother, Muslims have won.
