Liberalism has a long and honorable pedigree, but since the 1960s it has just not been able to say no to the Left. Today liberalism often finds itself stuck in the political equivalent of a fugal state, supporting anti-American and anti-democratic ideas such as racial- and gender-preferences and the feminist assault on the family with which it is—or should in theory be—wholly at odds.

Unlike traditional liberals, even those who have some-times embraced its excesses, the Left is permanently at war with America—day in and day out, year in and year out, on every front and every issue, no matter how moderately it dis-guises its aims, nor how modestly it announces its objectives. The Left’s agenda is to consolidate its parasitic hold on the liberal host and then to create a world in which conservatives and conservative values have no place. What it envisions is the political equivalent of an ethnic cleansing.

And so the Right fundamentally misunderstands the situation it faces when it accepts the Left’s public self-image as a fragmented, disorganized and ad-hoc remnant. In its pri-vate mirror, the Left views itself as an army—one that may temporarily have its back to the wall, but is still the proud bearer of a code that forbids surrender.
