Lib and Let Live

-by Scott Rohter, July 2011

Liberals preach tolerance and diversity, but they have a nasty little habit of being rather intolerant of others, especially when it comes to conservatives with whom they disagree. The same thing is also true for certain privileged members of minority groups whenever it comes to tolerating others who don’t happen to belong to their little cabal.  Often they exhibit overt hostility to others who aren't in their group, but who nevertheless make up the majority of the population of our country under whose benevolent umbrella these protected minorities are allowed to co-exist and prosper.  This is true for gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and transgender activists, radical feminists, Black Muslims, Islamists, and ultra-radical progressives.  All of these minorities or special interest groups exhibit outright contempt for the traditional values of most Americans who have welcomed them into our society with open arms.

The original Women’s Suffrage Movement which was led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony among others was affectionately referred to as the Suffragettes. It has turned into today’s men-hating ultra-feminists who interestingly enough also despise any woman who espouses traditional values.

The Abolitionist Movement which was led by Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Ward Beecher, and Fredrick Douglass to name just a few paved the way for the modern day Civil Rights Movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. However it has also led to hate-mongering Black Panthers, Black Muslims, and Black separatists which have spawned leaders like Lewis Farrakhan, Stokley Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Wright's wrongheaded Chicago based Black Empowerment Theology Church sows the seeds of racial hatred!  Any one of these current leaders would have made the late Dr. Martin Luther King very uncomfortable.

Muslims from all over the world have immigrated to America and found in us an open and welcoming society. However some members of their minority group have rewarded their hosts with open contempt and even downright hatred for our secular laws and our secular government which allows us all to live together in relative peace and prosperity. They hate the general principle under which we all are able to co-exist in comparative security. This is the principle of non-interference between Church and State, as it is succinctly stated in our Constitution in the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment. Instead they seek to isolate themselves from other Americans and live in segregated communities under their own Sharia Laws.

I’m sure there must be an appropriate term to describe such ungrateful souls who reward good with evil and call evil good!  It isn’t enough to call them merely ungrateful for they take advantage of every freedom and opportunity that our country offers them and then they turn around and reward us with ridicule, and openly disparage the very society and system of laws that has protected and nurtured them!  They bite the hand of those who feed them. Some of them even go so far as to plot attacks on our fellow citizens!  Take for instance what happened at Fort Hood, Texas with Major Nidal Hasan.  I’m sure there must be a special place in Hell reserved for people like him!

America was intended to be a great social experiment.  It was supposed to be a big melting pot where people from every country and culture, and from all walks of life come together and participate in the free market place... a place where we can exchange our ideas and learn from each other. If we can survive this experience and learn to get along with each other and live together in peace as a single people then the experiment will be a success.  “E Pluribus Unum” is our national motto. It is Latin.  It means, “In many we are one!”  In order to achieve this goal we must first be tolerant of each other and of our differences. In other words we must learn to live and let live. The key to our success and to our survival as a nation is to remember to be respectful of one another and to learn to be tolerant of our differences. That goes for liberals, and special minority groups too!
