Liberal lies and the Enemy

John C. Wright looks at the lies of liberalism and its inability to call the enemy the enemy.  It's a wonderful piece looking at our liberal culture in light of the very under-reported destruction of Iraq's oldest monastery. 

The only thing I would say is that liberalism is not always silent when it comes to calling out the enemy.  The problem, as I see it, is that liberalism sees the Christian Faith, the Western Tradition, and the West's bastard child the United States as the enemy.  Against that enemy, the Left calls out from the roof tops, through the media and popular culture, by way of our educational institutions and even through legal mandate if possible.  That is because the Left genuinely sees the Christian tradition and the civilizations it developed as the only real enemy.  One that, unlike other possible enemies we may face, definitely needs nothing less than eradicated from the human experience.

Otherwise, it's a typically great JC Wright piece.
