Useful Idiots: Bias part II
“In political jargon, the term useful idiot was used to describe Soviet sympathizers in Western countries and the attitude of the Soviet government towards them. The implication was that though the person in question naïvely thought themselves an ally of the Soviets or other Communists, they were actually held in contempt by them, and were being cynically used.”
Today we have dimmi’s. Those who try and convince us that if we’d only believe, the muslim world would like us. If we’d stop bombing them (for terrorist attacks, 9/11, violent oppression of women, etc.), the Arab would would like us. “Unclench the fist” so to speak.
Sorry, fists are still clenched.
BBC Radio has a good podcast on useful idiots.
Yes, on the right there has been support of violent oppressive regimes. But (and this is a Kim Kardashian-sized but) violent anti-western regiems are working together. Most “rightist” regimes were islands of despotism. In South America, Hugo Chavez is trying to work with China, Russian and Iran against the US. Iran is trying to undermine the US in the middle east and supports terror attacks against the US. The Taliban and the Al-Qaeda sponsored terror in Iraq were whitewashed by the left since OIF and OEF.
The left is in love with anything anti-American. Even as they work to undermine the freedoms they enjoy.
Sadly, useful idiots are still with us.
