The Deafening Silence of the Left Speaks VOLUMES!

Do you know why there has been a deafening silence from the left over the protests and riots in Iran? Would you like to understand why the mainstream media is conflicted in reporting this story? There is a worldview of the left that the United States is bad and that anything that it does in the world is therefore bad. They think that they can negotiate with thugs and thieves and settle things without having to lead and show the way. 

As Written by the Editors of the Weekly Standard:

The American left has always been more comfortable with domestic policy than foreign. Progressives are happy to talk about injustice at home. But what about injustice abroad? Are there circumstances in which the United States can use its power and influence to advance justice or to check repression in a foreign country? Modern American liberals don’t have enough faith in our country to think we have the right, or even the ability, to lead other peoples toward worthier forms of governance. They fall back on rejectionism—rejection of militarism, rejection of imperialism, rejection of American “arrogance.” No dictatorial regime is ever odious enough, no threat to the interests of the United States or our allies sufficiently egregious to warrant decisive action.

Arguing against this imperial aggression or that military adventure, we regularly insist that our country should avoid all engagements abroad and devote its energy and resources to creating a more just society here at home.”
