    Just Another Week of Harm to A Great Civilization by Barbarians Inside the Gates
    By Dennis Prager for Jewish World Review
    October 11, 2005

    Not a week goes by that some part of the Left does not hurt America. But in the past two weeks, three examples stood out for the degree of such harm.

    --the ACLU files suit against Southwest Airlines
    --judge appointed by Clinton orders release of remaining Abu Ghraib photos
    --smearing of Bill Bennett as a racist

    You're right. Here's what the article had to say about that:

    "The first example involved the ACLU, which has threatened Southwest Airlines with a lawsuit. Southwest ordered a passenger off a flight after she refused to cover her T-shirt on which was printed an expletive — "Fu—ers" — referring to President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

    The ACLU position is not surprising. That organization had once defended a high school student whose school had prohibited him from wearing to class a T-shirt that read "Big Pecker."

    I have previously noted in this column the widespread approval of foul language on the Left, such as the expletive-filled entertainment at a John Kerry fundraiser organized by MoveOn.org. Nor is it surprising that a high percentage of my e-mail from people on the Left contains obscenities. To most Americans, the huge increase in public cursing is a sign of a deteriorating civilization; to the Left it is a sign of a freer, less hypocritical one."
