Why do liberals support Palestine? I thought they considered organized religion and nationalism outdated concepts. If a liberal supports Palestine then they support oppressive Islamism and a form of nationalism. Ideally a liberal should support nether Palestine or Israel.

Well, I doubt many of those right wingers keep insisting are 'liberals' are actually liberals, but the short answer is because it's fashionable, part of the Cold War rhetoric they learn from their Stuck In The 60's pseudo-intellectuals that run the education system these days, dumbass dope-addled Burb Brats who think that because they smoke pot and read Hunter Thompson they're 'radicals n stuff, Fightin' Da Man!!!' when all they really are is buffoons and vermin. Hollywood made lots of movies pandering to their egoes and dumbassery.

Here is the best essay on where the hate for Israel escalated on the 'Left'; the 'New Left' followed whatever Pravda told them to, mostly, and of course any theology that rejected mindless bourgeoisie self-indulgence has to be 'bad'. Da JOOS became 'evil' overnight, when LBJ took over from the French as Israel's ally. This annoyed the Soviets, so the propaganda campaigns kicked in.


So, if you didn't follow the herd, overnight you became a 'fascist war monger' if you opposed the genocide of Israeli Jews and you got kicked out of the hippie treehouse. clubs . The defeat of the Arab vermin in 1967 and in 1973 played a role in both bankrupting the Soviets and costing them client states in the ME and Africa, on top of the massive expenses of the Viet Nam war; the Arab oil embargoes after 1973 left the Soviets totally dependent on western food and refined petroleum imports until the Gorbachev era. Arabs blamed the Soviets for their losses, being incredibly vain and stupid people.

Its just a common term that we can all relate to

liberal represents those way to the left of center

which describes 90% of the democrat party and news media

OAC is a far left radical-socialist who hates America

calling her a “liberal“ does not do her justice, but everyone knows what we mean

Do you know what happened in 2014, how Israel pretty much destroyed Gaza and even now they are building settlements in the west bank and want to inhale it.

My avatar is because of how utterly viscous they were, it has 3 men that belonged to one family, all emperors and Vespasian and Titus totally destroyed Judea the second time after the Babylonians. The Israelis' should know and remember their real history.

Also the Israel régime wants us to fight Iran, and started the war in Iraq and Syria.

Then why not just refer to them as leftist vermin?

I suppose we could

But liberal is a term long associated with the left

It is strange that many liberals support Palestine over Israel.

1. Israel is a democracy. Palestine has not had an election for president in years.
2. Israel allows freedom of the press. Palestine does not.
3. Israel allows freedom of religion. Palestine does not.
4. Israel believes in gender equality. Palestine does not.
5. Israel treats gay people like human beings. Palestine does not.

Two out of five ain't bad, but the Left hates numbers 1, 2, and 3 above all else.

That's easy, they think they are poking a finger in the eye of Christians....and it is as simple as that.

So, the Democratic party supports palestine huh? 90% of Democrats support Palestine? Where do you get this shit? I see you found one to argue for it on here but I can assure you after 50 years of going to party functions I can not remember one function where the fate of palestien was even a topic of chat. The denocratic parties prime directive is more money for the worker and less money for the one percent. Every thing else is secondary. It has not changed in the 50 years I have been involved. Amybe in some back ally some where there is a faction but they would have no traction among the party in order to accompish any thing.

If so democrats lost their way during the clinton presidency when the US allowed cheap chinese manufactured goods into our market

worker pay has been under severe strain since then

Terrorists in Gaza should stop attacking Israel.

and even now they are building settlements in the west bank

It's their land, why shouldn't they build on it?
