You saythen go on to sayA) The concept that we are fighting a war on terror against men who plot to kill us out of sheer evil is a falsehood.So you concede then that there are men who are plotting to kill you. This is what the wounded soldier was saying.Terror is an asymmetric strategy used to demand concessions from the nation in power. Specifically it has to do with American support for Israel and it's incursions into the middle east. Yes, many people want America dead and gone. It's not because America is too sparkly and beautiful for them to bear.
This is a statement only a Leftinger could make. I suppose you feel you're being satirical here, perhaps even comical, but in fact there are some bad guys out there and they are killing innocent people. And no matter how isolated from reality the Leftists might be, the majority of them should understand that.The above statement is value laden to such an extent it can't maintain buoyancy, its essentially "Dey hatez us cuz we are good and they are bad."
I understand that in the Leftist world there is no evil, only the misunderstood, but of course that flies in the face of all empirical evidence and recorded human history. Evil does exist.Sorry, the good absolute good guy vs bad guy mentality takes the cake.Yes, and these "philosophical stances" take the form of shouting down those who might offer alternative points of view, violent confrontation or pies in the face. We know.
B) Most 'enlightened' dialogue that occurs on campus is free from the conservative liberal paradigm and addresses the philosophical stances at their heart and laid bare. 'Conservative' ideas don't survive because they don't tend to hold intellectual water.
Exactly. Stupid and proud of it.See: 'Islamofascism'. If people came to campuses trying to pull fast ones like Islamofascism awareness they're going to get heckled and sent home fast.
Leaner, meaner beasts? There is no philosophy more murky, and which depends almost entirely on lies and shoutdowns than the Leftist agenda. It often takes years to shake the crap too many kids learn in the educations system today and those who remain in academia are unlikely to ever recover, They will die ignorant."Sorry, bro, been to college! LoL!" In a darwinistic sense conservative 'beliefs' are the dodo in the intellectual environment. They've been ravaged by leaner, meaner, beasts. Why coddle them?
