WHAT BOB BECKEL’S COMMENT ABOUT GUEVARA REVEALS

Listen to Ed’s Audio Blog:

Democrats have made many outrageous comments recently. Rep. Maxine Waters said the Tea Party could “go to hell.” Another member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Andre Carson, said that the Tea Party wants blacks “hanging from a tree.” Now, James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters Union, tells union members that they are ready to go to political war with Republicans and take the “sons of bitches” out.

A comment that didn’t get the coverage the above comments got, but that I believe is revealing of the warped ideas in far-left Democrat’s heads, is Bob Beckel’s defense of Che Guevara on The Five as a freedom fighter. http://www.breitbart.tv/bob-beckel-che-guevara-was-freedom-fighter/

Che has been a hero of the American left since long before his death at the hands of the Bolivian Army in 1960. In reality he was a communist thug, murderer, and all around bad guy. The fact that Che is held in such high esteem by Beckel and other’s on the left gives us a glimpse into how their minds work and what they believe is worthy of admiration.

The progressive left simply has a self-image of moral superiority. Whether a progressive is a communist revolutionary in the jungle or an academic in an ivy-covered tower, progressives look on them as superior to those who don’t agree with the progressive world view. That world view is that even thugs like Che who are supposedly  “ideologically motivated” are smarter and serve society better, even when they do evil (like indiscriminate killing) along the way.

That’s why labor leaders over the years could crack heads, engage in corruption, and break the law and still be icons of the left.

However, any American who professes to believe in freedom, liberty, and the American way that can look up to people like Che Guevara simply either doesn’t know or understand who he was and what he did or they have a warped sense of right and wrong. I believe it’s the latter.

No doubt moderators in the many upcoming Republican debates will ask Republican candidates if they believe in evolution, does God talk to them, and other questions designed to reveal their politically incorrect views. I hope when Republicans chose their nominee and he or she debates President Obama, those same moderators will ask Barack Obama what his opinion is about Che, Mao Zedong and other thugs whose images have adorned the T-shirts of liberals over the years. And I hope they ask him why progressives are blind to their monumental hypocrisy and double standard.

Of course they won’t. So it’s up to Americans to figure this all out for ourselves.

So no one will misunderstand me. As I have said many times. There are plenty of good Democrats and liberals. They’ve just been overshadowed and infected by radical progressives lately. The best disinfectant is a little sunshine.

  • HAVE WE HIT BOTTOM YET? April 13, 2014
    During the nearly five and a half years of the Obama presidency, America has been moving in the wrong direction. The U.S. economy continues to struggle through the longest and slowest recovery from recession since World War II. From Benghazi to Ukraine, U.S. foreign policy has collapsed. U.S. world leadership has receded to a low not seen since the 1930s. Ha […]
  • UKRAINE: APPROACHING CRITICAL MASS? March 23, 2014
    Critical mass in nuclear science is the smallest amount of fissile material needed for a sustained nuclear chain reaction. Critical mass in international politics is the smallest amount of aggression needed to start a war. Despite what President Obama and other Western leaders say and do, the situation in Ukraine may be fast approaching that point.
  • WINNING THE POLITICAL PROPAGANDA WARS March 9, 2014
    If Republicans continue to lose presidential elections it won't be only because they failed to garner a sufficient percentage of the growing Hispanic, Asian and African-American vote; it will be because they continue to lose the political propaganda war.
  • RESTRUCTURING THE MILITARY March 2, 2014
    Like most conservatives, President Obama's proposed reductions of the U.S. armed forces disturb me. Since after World War I, every time we have reduced our military strength after a war, we've regretted it. Nevertheless, it's time to rethink the mission, size and composition of the U.S. military, preparing for the next war, not a repeat of the […]
  • GLOBAL WARMING; A POLITICAL WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION February 23, 2014
    Speaking in Indonesia last week, Secretary of State John Kerry, said that global warming is “perhaps even the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Sec. Kerry may or may not be right about the destruction global warming may ultimately cause; but he's absolutely right about one thin. Global warming is a weapon. It's a politica […]
  • COMMUNISM, SOCIALISM AND SHORT MEMORIES February 16, 2014
    We might forgive NBC Sports for glossing over the evils of Soviet communism during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, if it weren't for all those young men and women, born since the fall of Soviet Union, that have no memories of the Cold War or the "evil empire." Given the U.S. education system these days, I doubt they learned much about it […]

  • THE OUTLOOK FOR U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY IN 2014 January 26, 2014
    Straight-line projecting current trends into the future is easy; but odds are that you'll be less than half right. History rarely unfolds in a straight line; and the U.S. national security environment in the year ahead is fraught with twists and turns. Nevertheless, straight-lining things, odds are that by this time next year, threats to U.S. national s […]
