Trick Question on Terrorists and Liberals
We stand for freedom. That’s their biggest bugaboo. Freedom is what makes people different. Freedom and liberty is what allows different outcomes from person to person to person. It’s freedom that allows exceptionalism, freedom that permits greatness, freedom that results in differences. Well, if you look at Sharia law in Islam, they want everybody to live identically: Same rules, same way, same outcomes in life.
So does the American liberal. I don’t know what you’re trying to do with your question, but I look at conservatives as defending the country as founded. It’s the greatest ever, founded on liberty, and I don’t care where there is an enemy to that. It’s gonna be opposed and defeated. So the left… I don’t hear, for example, anything I say repeated by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I don’t hear anything I say repeated by Fidel Castro.
I don’t hear anything I say repeated by Western European socialists or Vladimir Putin. But I hear a lot of similarities when I listen to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad criticize this country. It could be Harry Reid, could be Barack Obama. I don’t understand how in the world Americans could have, as their archenemies, people who believe in freedom, liberty — us, conservatives! But it is the greatest threat. There cannot be freedom, as founded in this country, and liberalism.
They cannot coincide.
