Liberals For Iran

Sounds like liberals are finally getting it:
    The Iranian drama is a great opportunity for American liberals to reassert their proud tradition of defending human rights at a time when radicals on the left and the right can’t see past their hatred of each other.

As a conservative, I'd love nothing more than for liberals to be at the forefront of the movement for democratic reform in Iran. But it will never happen. Leftists didn't support democrats in Eastern Europe 25 years ago and they won't support reformers in Iran and the Middle East now, because, just as the USSR presented the principal challenge to Western liberal democracy in the early 1980’s, so to do tyrannical regimes like the Iranian mullahcracy today.

Beneath the veil of concern for human rights and equality, in the hearts of most Leftists and “Progressives” lies a deep admiration for authoritarianism.

I understand you want the Liberals to get involved in the plight of Iranians, and you would think they would be, but Canuckbush is right. The Left loves dictators.

Funny, delusional article.

"that is the sound of philosophy, art, and liberty that toppled the Berlin wall. There was no military invasion there, just a unanimous call for human rights."
AND a President named Reagan! LoL. They leave that part out and take credit for it themselves.
Ha Ha Ha

Not to mention that after 75 years the Soviet Union had all but crumbled and fallen in on it's hollow self, and, not to mention that the dismantling of the Berlin Wall was the final act of a 50 year war known as the Cold War, during which hundred's of thousands died in both hot and cold episodes of the conflict and the world lived on the precipice of nuclear annihilation. Funny how the lefties have to do so much cherry picking in order to make a case, isn't it? Philosophy and art, my ass.

To be precise, the war that brought down the Berlin wall was fought in Afghanistan as it marked a decisive blow to the fascade that Soviet citizen's supported the communist regime. Once Gorbi, the reformer, came to power, the Eastern bloc began the thaw which ended with the dismantling of the Berlin Wall.
