Big Differences Between “Leftists” and “Liberals”


Big Differences Between “Leftists” and “Liberals”

I have just been “schooled” on the difference between “The Left” and traditional American Liberalism. This was a lesson I badly needed.

I have been equating the left with liberalism and in doing so, I have done a disservice to many American Liberals. Though I work hard to do my research and stay informed on these matters, I have often failed to make this important distinction. 

I apologize and I will no longer make that mistake.

Although I will still not vote for traditional American liberals, I have liberal friends who I like,  respect, and whose friendship I value very much.

I judge that clean and healthy competition between liberal and conservative America-loving political influences have the best chance of keeping America close to that “sweet spot” on the sociopolitical continuum most likely to insure our society’s long-term success in competition for survival among our world of cultures.

I will now more carefully reserve my vitriol and deep animosity for those who, no matter what they may call themselves (liberals, progressives, socialists, communists, revolutionaries, antifa, anarchists, etc..) should more correctly be labeled as “Leftists“.

The problem is that many political leftists camouflage themselves with more palatable labels. For example, leftists frequently call themselves liberals and progressives. They then work in devious and illegal ways to implement leftist practices in order to incrementally “Transform America” into a socioculture that our Founding Fathers and the patriots of their day never meant America to become. 

In fact such leftist “transformations” of America would be the realization of our Founding Father’s very worst nightmarish outcomes for us all!

It is incontrovertible that leftists are the arch-enemies of America’s freedoms for all of its citizens. The freedoms that our patriots have fought and died to achieve and protect from the very beginnings this nation’s great and noble 241-year-plus experiment “Liberty for All”!

Please see the following presentation by Prager U to further understand the differences between true American liberals and the Leftists among us and elsewhere.
