What struck me, reading the lefty responses to a tweet in support of Israel, is just how childish the lefty position on Israel is.
The moderate left position (the hard left position on Israel being indistinguishable from Stormfront’s) seems to be “Of course, Israel should be allowed to defend itself but only if no one gets hurt, not even accidentally.” (This is the expressed position of the Obama Administration, which mouths moderate left rhetoric even though it is ideologically hard left.)
This position is so unrealistic it’s childish. It is literally something a child might wish for; because it is childish to believe that wants can be fulfilled without effort, and that actions can take place without consequences. They want some kind of magical war where Israel can defend itself from barbarians hiding behind children without hurting anyone.
Lefties apparently confuse “Iron Dome” with “Ironman.” The latter is a movie, lefties. Not real.
And the mainstream press practices their own form of moderate left camouflage. Their true hard left ideology tells them that all the conflict in the world is the result of oppressors taking from the oppressed. But in order to not be so obviously Marxist, they have to default the childish, moderate left position, that there really aren’t any bad guys among nations, and that each side must be equally wrong and culpable in any conflict. They don’t report the barbarism of Palestinians… using children as human shields, or shooting rockets loaded with ball bearings and razor blades at Israeli schools. To truly and honestly report on the barbarity of the Palestinians would violate the moderate left dogma that neither side in any conflict is morally superior to the other.
Very, very immature people are in charge of the USA at this juncture. Want proof? Here’s your proof.
