Half and full progressives
By Michael Moriarty
Half Progressives are those who see no evil in abortion, yet raise repeated protests regarding the United Nations' criminal neglect of ethnic cleansing in Africa. This New World Order is off to such an ugly third millennium chapter. The preceding 20th century was brutally marked by tens of millions of abortions a year and the loss of millions of Africans in Rwanda, the Congo and the Sudan.
That combined ethic of death is utterly approved of by full progressives. They see it as a direct contribution to the de-population of the human race. It is the progressives' belief, supported by environmentalists and Planned Parenthood, that 6 billion humans is over-population by half. They and their spokespersons are advertising such death, as abortion and ethnic cleansing, as lowering the rates of poverty, hunger and crime. It is death and murder as an acceptable solution to the problems and challenges of life.
That the American half progressives don't see a million and a half abortions per year in America as an epidemic, ignore the Centre for Contagious Diseases, which has already listed abortion as a growing epidemic. The fascinating thing about American half progressives is that they feel utterly justified in the righteousness over the United Nations and Africa.
This infernal silence about abortion can be likened to Germany's silence about the Holocaust. Many in the Jewish community are half progressives like Elie Wiesel, a man who would become the UN's virtual mascot of humanism, trotted out to encourage further charitable contributions to the United Nations. He and his Jewish brothers and sisters may dislike the UN's terrifying neglect of Africa, but they don't realize that both abortion and ethnic cleansing are the fulfillment of the progressive desire for a smaller human race.
I have no doubt that eventually the New World Order, or more specifically, the William Clinton/George Bush Sr./Third Way Pax Americana will collapse, come tumbling down, Humpty Dumpties all. No evil so huge can survive on this earth for long.
That the progressives have been able to veil their true intent is largely due to Planned Parenthood's success at doing the same thing. Roe v. Wade, all wrapped up in feminist liberation and "sane" family planning, is really the New World Order's greatest foot in the door of American morality. That Supreme Court decision virtually tore us off our moral high ground. We are now not much higher then Red China in that respect, and that we have a generation of female Americans so eagerly and so blithely aborting their gestating infants makes the corruption even deeper.
The progressives' ability, in our universities and our communication system, to erase the meaning of good and evil and replace it with the belief that all is morally ambivalent and all cultures are created equal - these are the invitations to progressive complexity. Their recent 1000-page bill about immigration is a perfect example. The laws of America were painlessly simple – come to America if you are willing to be American. America is no longer America, because of Roe v. Wade and its defiance of the Declaration of Independence and our American inalienable right to life when created equal, not gestated as candidates for abortion. Illegal aliens are now arriving for membership in a United Nations' colony, a kind of waste-basket the Progressives wish to make of the United States of America.
How dare the Progressives believe that Islam is a culture the equal of pre-Roe v. Wade-America. Islam has never honored and will never honor the Golden Rule. In the 20th century Islam and Communism rose to offer the human race the likes of Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung and Osama bin Laden, and the progressive Bush-Clinton coalition wish to consider these monsters cultural equals and a level of moral reality that we, with our legalized abortion, must live in. Neither world Communism nor Islam are through yet, burying the Golden Rule as if it never existed and applying terrorist tactics to put Western civilization on its knees.
Now the progressives, with their open door immigration policy, allow Islam to enter the United States unchecked and protected from racial identification by the progressives. The Muslims have proven to be as fervently against the free world as Nazi Germany was. The progressives deny that, and for the sake of being elected, they guarantee Americans that the progressive movement can reason with Islam and bring about peace. Peace with Islam is utterly impossible. The seeming moderates, like the Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, have constructed a protected reserve for eventual fundamentalists, but the moderates' claims of desire for peace are belied by their own bible, the Quran, which promises death to all infidels.
Both full and half progressives have done more to put America at the mercy of Islam than even Osama bin Laden. The progressives have an ongoing and indefinitely long policy of appeasement. As Winston Churchill describes an appeaser, "he feeds the crocodile, hoping he will be eaten last".
