It's Really Pretty Simple, Dennis

Here' s a nice article from one of the worst right wing asses, the compulsively dishonest Dennis Prager:

"Name One Difference Between World Opinion and Left-Wing Opinion

Here's a challenge: Can you name one difference between what the media refer to as "world opinion" and Left-wing opinion?

Take all the time you need. But no matter how much time you take, you probably won't come up with any examples.

Here are examples of major world issues and what is deemed "world opinion." They happen to all be Leftist views as well.

-- hatred of President George W. Bush and admiration of President Barack Obama

-- Manmade carbon emissions lead to global warming and devastation of the environment. Therefore, the world's nations must tax carbon-based energy.

-- The American invasion of Iraq was morally wrong, motivated by desire for oil.

-- The American free-enterprise system is inferior to Europe's welfare-state systems.

-- The American health care system is inferior to that of all other wealthy countries

This list in no way differs from a list of Leftist positions. Nor would any other list of "world opinion" positions differ in any meaningful way from Leftist positions.

Why is that?"

Uh, I don't know, Dennis...maybe it's because they are all true. Isn't it funny that the entire six billion strong population of the world is stupid as a bunch of hedgehogs, except for the few million tea party loons here in America that you pander to every chance you get?

But oh, no, only a bunch of racist, greedy, stupid American white guys get it. The whole rest of the world doesn't have Fox News and Limbaugh and corrupt Republicans to tell them exactly what to think, so they are stuck in the untenable position of having to believe things because they make sense.

All of these assertions are either dubious opinion statements, or flat-out incorrect.

Except the first, really, which is just a reflection of how people in the Left hate someone for just having an R after their name, and people on the Right hate someone for just having an D after their name.

DMarks, let's just take one of these statements: the invasion of Iraq was morally wrong.

Do you disagree with that? Or do you approve of an act of blatant military aggression, without cause, by a powerful state against a weak one, justified to people by an endless string of totally baseless claims that the small country represented an immediate threat to the world power? Because if so, you must be just fine with Hitler's invasion of Czechoslovakia, which was nearly identical to the U. S. invasion of Iraq, and our slaughtering of a million innocent Iraqi civilians.
