4.) America is the least racist country in the world.
The left generally characterizes America as racist and xenophobic. Listening to the left, one would think that America still resembles that of the 1950s, where blacks and other minorities were systematically discriminated against or worse. Adored liberal Bill Maher recently called the United States of America the “Racist States of America.” In response to the Trayvon Martin tragedy, Jesse Jackson said, “Blacks are under attack” in America. But is America really a terrible place for non-whites? Dennis Prager brilliantly highlights why this is nonsense:
Decades ago, the number of black Africans who had immigrated to the United States had already surpassed the number of black Africans who were forcibly shipped to America as slaves. Members of other races and nationalities know this. Even Muslim and Arab writers have noted that nowhere in the Arab or larger Muslim world does an Arab or any other Muslim have the individual rights, liberty, and dignity that a Muslim living in America has. As for Latinos and Asians, vast numbers of them from El Salvador to Korea regard America as the land of opportunity.
Liberals who think America is a racist, oppressive society must explain why so many minorities risk their lives to come here illegally.
5.) And lastly (mostly for my Jewish, liberal friends), as governments become more conservative, they become more pro-Israel. This is true in America and the rest of the non-Muslim world.
In Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper of the Conservative Party delivered a rousing speech in defense of Israel in 2010. Here is part of what he said:
But when Israel, the only country in the world who’s very existence is under attack, is consistently and conspicuously singled out for condemnation, I believe we are morally obligated to take a stand…As long as I am Prime Minister, whether it is at the United Nations…or anywhere else, Canada will take that stand, whatever the cost.
In America it is plainly obvious that the Obama administration is much less supportive of Israel than the Bush administration. The hallmark of Obama’s foreign policy approach towards Israel when he first came into office was to lambast it for building apartments on 2% of the land it captured in a defensive war. Furthermore, Obama sought a more even-handed approach to the peace process, placing equal blame for failed negotiations on the Palestinians and Israel. Obama has since backed off his criticism of Israeli “settlements” because it backfired and only served to harden Palestinian demands.
A few weeks ago Alan Dershowitz spoke at a Los Angeles temple, where he said he was still unsure whom he would vote for in the presidential election, Obama or Romney. Why do you think a life-long liberal and ardent Israel supporter is considering leaving the Democratic Party?
