Embracing the Past in the Present as the Future

It must be a wonderful feeling for the Left to be at one with  such luminaries as Fidel Castro and  Hezbollah.    The former is a pathetic leftover of a failed ideology that caused the enslavement and death of millions of people all over the world in the 20th century.  The latter is  representative of a malignant ideology that is basically attempting to do the same in this century.   Who knew that when Clinton talked about a "bridge to the 21st Century", he and the Democrats meant a return to 20th century totalitarianism or 17th century barbarism?  Fortunately, there is still some perspective available. In Cuba, unnamed dissidents noted the following:

"Cuban dissidents who saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" praised the United States for its freedom of expression and lamented that such criticism of a president was not allowed in Cuba where the one-party state controls the media."

And in Poland, whose escape from the political shackles of communism is relatively recent (and therefore they probably know what they are talking about when it comes to propaganda) :

"Gazeta Wyborcza reviewer Jacek Szczerba called the film a "foul pamphlet".
He said it was too biased to be called a documentary and was similar to work by Nazi propaganda director Leni Riefenstahl.

Someday, the reasonable people in the Democratic Party will awaken and be stunned to discover who they are in bed with, but by then the deed will have been done.
