Since the regressive-left in the United States refuses to stand up for women in the Arab-Muslim Middle East or Gay people in that part of the world, or the pulverized Christian population there, just why should anyone stand up for the Left anywhere?
By what argument can regressives - formerly known as "progressives" - claim to stand for universal human rights when they honestly do not care that Jihadis throw Gays off of rooftops?
By what argument can regressives claim to stand for universal human rights when they honestly do not care that women are treated like chattel throughout the Islamic world and forced to hide themselves in black potato sacks?
By what argument can regressives claim to stand for universal human rights when they think that the Christian genocide under Arab-Muslim imperial rule is just dandy?
If the regressive-left does not stand for universal human rights than it stands for nothing and is, therefore, undeserving of support.
And, needless to say, no Jew with even the slightest whit of self-respect would support a political movement that is more than happy to undermine the well-being of Jews everywhere, through its willingness - if not eagerness - to throw Israel to the wolves, as we just saw with the recent UNSC resolution.
The so-called "progressive-left" has thrown its alleged values into the garbage entirely and, thereby, transmogrified itself into the regressive-left.
I just find it sad.
