A Leftist Speaks Out

Pilar Rahola tears the Left a new one.

Pilar Rahola is a Spanish politician, journalist and activist and member of the far left.  Here she calls out her own, and basically illustrates why so many of us have parted company with the Left.  Every single one of her points rings personally true, and each on its own was a good enough reason to walk away.

Why don’t we see demonstrations against Islamic dictatorships in London, Paris, Barcelona?

Or demonstrations against the Burmese dictatorship?

Why aren’t there demonstrations against the enslavement of millions of women who live without any legal protection?

Why aren’t there demonstrations against the use of children as human bombs where there is conflict with Islam?

Why has there been no leadership in support of the victims of Islamic dictatorship in Sudan?

Why is there never any outrage against the acts of terrorism committed against Israel?

Why is there no outcry by the European left against Islamic fanaticism?

Why don’t they defend Israel’s right to exist?

Why confuse support of the Palestinian cause with the defense of Palestinian terrorism?

An finally, the million dollar question: Why is the left in Europe and around the world obsessed with the two most solid democracies, the United States and Israel, and not with the worst dictatorships on the planet? The two most solid democracies, who have suffered the bloodiest attacks of terrorism, and the left doesn’t care.

And then, to the concept of freedom. In every pro Palestinian European forum I hear the left yelling with fervor: “We want freedom for the people!”

Not true. They are never concerned with freedom for the people of Syria or Yemen or Iran or Sudan, or other such nations. And they are never preoccupied when Hamas destroys freedom for the Palestinians. They are only concerned with using the concept of Palestinian freedom as a weapon against Israeli freedom. The resulting consequence of these ideological pathologies is the manipulation of the press.

She’s only getting started as she tears the Left a new orifice.  The rest, here.

The Left is relentlessly anti-American because they are relentlessly anti-capitalist.  End of story.  Israel’s greatest crime is to be our ally.  End of story.  Nobody who reads her entire column can seriously dispute this, for there is no other explanation for their double standard and selective outrage.  Once you clue in to this simple truth, you now can dismiss 99% of what they say for the claptrap it is.


  1. Obviously you say these things because you don’t recognise the beauty of Islam. Click on the video at the following link and watch Mohommad’s followers of “peaceful” islam carrying out his instructions – direct from the Quran.
