Mother of 12 regrets her early support for abortion “rights”

Thirty-nine years ago nine black-robed men handed feminists a triumph that would try our souls, and — I have come to believe — find them wanting.

On Jan. 22, 1973, when the Sisterhood is Powerful crowd rejoiced at their Roe v. Wade victory, I was with them, a Washington, D.C., radical feminist scholar/abortion rights advocate, much in demand as a spokeswoman by virtue of my motherhood. After all, who better to illustrate the righteous need for abortion than a young woman with a future, already encumbered by a 3-year-old in daycare?

The critical difference between liberals and leftists

While many conservatives merge liberalism and leftism, there are huge differences between the two camps.  Liberals, like Gail, want a kinder and gentler America.  They choose safe, suburban suburbs, with schools that (as of yet) do not radicalize their children.  While it’s the rare liberal who would display a flag on July 4, he still cares about this country, supports Israel, and is wary of radical Islam.

The progressive/leftists are an entirely different species entirely; they do not love this country or Israel.  In fact, the far left would like nothing better than to knock the US and Israel down from their high horses.

Leftists sympathize with the “victims” of the United States, not those Americans who are brutalized by thugs or terrorists.  The left practices third-worldism,  the belief that the paths of Chavez and Lenin are vastly superior to our own Founding Fathers.  Having become smitten by the renegade image of Che Guevara, they fashion themselves as post-modern revolutionaries, who set out, with a missionary zeal, to change the world.

Consequently, leftists turn a blind eye to the savagery of the third world, e.g. the burqua or beheadings.  Progressives justify the brutality of gang violence and perhaps engage in mob behavior themselves.  While they label conservatives as reactionary, leftists are, in truth, the true reactionaries, reacting against Mommy, Daddy, God, and country.
