"Antifa or Antiwar: Leftist Exclusionism Against the Quest for Peace," by Diana Johnstone. Consortium News. May 21, 2018.

I am thoroughly impressed. The point is that people are entitled to pick and choose the aspects of any ideology they want. Picking one doesn't mean endorsing the package. Frankly, it's not so much picking an aspect but simply having an overlapping view.

As for the targets of her most excellent article, they falsely imagine that they can lump everyone together who opposes Zionism with unwittingly facilitating supporting libertarian economics and clamping down on sexual anarchy (anything-goes liberalism, which isn't freedom but slavery).

They don't like Putin primarily because Putin doesn't march in "Gay Pride" parades. Therefore, he's somehow homophobic and dangerous.

The fact is that homosexuals are not rounded up, tortured, imprisoned, or executed in Russia for being homosexual. Putin simply wants no act-out decadence on the streets, which acting out he sees as undermining the fabric of society. He wants to maintain the traditional definition of marriage and to maintain the traditional families that result, not punish homosexuals. That's the Russian People's right to believe no matter how much identity-politics Americans think the rights of homosexuals outweighs it.

I don't think the jury is still out on what liberal culture has done to the US; but, for those who think everything that's recently happened will necessarily turn out fine, a shock finally awaits.
