Goodbye All That

Goodbye, All That: How Left Idiocies Drove Me to
Flee

Self-identified ‘anti-materialist liberal Democrat’ Ron
Rosenbaum is fed up with what he calls the dogmatic state of
America’s Left, particularly the ‘blind spot’ it maintains
regarding Marxist genocides around the world, and its idea that
America, in all its evil ways, deserved what was coming in the 9/11
attacks.

Writing in The New York Observer, Rosenbaum says he
is tired of those who call Bush ”a devil’ compared with those
enlightened regimes that torture and murder dissidents,’ and argues
that the time and energy the Left spends criticizing Bush’s dim
intelligence could be better spent developing its own strong
arguments.

As the Left presses on with today’s anti-war effort, Rosenbaum
calls for a re-evaluation of its past support of brutal Marxist
regimes such as Russia, China, and Cambodia. He would like to stop
hearing the claim that America is the greatest force of evil at
home and abroad. ‘All empires commit crimes,’ he writes; ‘in the
past century, ours were by far the lesser of evils,’ when compared
to the millions killed in other nations.

Though he admits that he was slow to question what the Left
supports, Rosenbaum hopes that in the future progressives can spot
what true terrorism and violence are, and recognize where the Left
has been wrong in the past.
