The latest Nobel Prize for literature runs true to form. It went to some weird Communist female who is so afraid of crowds she cannot go to the prize ceremony. And her works "reveal the absurdity of society's cliches and their subjugating power." Rah! Rah! Postmodernist claptrap, in other words. And, of course, "Her newest works are sharply critical of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq". And the "Peace" prize was awarded for tree planting! It must just have been time for a Greenie to get a turn. At least they didn't award it to Chirac!

Australia has a new and rising political party with moderate policies which is headed by a black woman. So Leftists love it, right? Surely two "minorities" in one should be irresistable? No way! The party is CHRISTIAN! So the Leftist media and Australia's far-Left Greenies are doing their best to bad-mouth it. Leftists are only in favour of "minorities" that they can use. See here

Canadian cowardice: "Concordia University in Montreal continues to promote terrorism against their Jewish students. The latest is that Concordia refuses to allow Past Prime Minister Ehud Barak from speaking on campus at a Hillel affair. They state that they cannot confirm he will be safe considering the lack of security they gave BiBi Netanyahu when he came to speak there last summer. So, their logic is "Let's not punish the perpetrators... let's punish the victim. In this case the speaker." Shouldn't they punish the Muslim thugs and violent students who come to break up these meetings when ever a Jewish speaker comes? Jail them? Expel them? However, Concordia seems to have become a base for terrorists training in Canada. It seems the only freedom of speech Concordia is promoting is Muslim freedom of speech"".

Japan: "If Junichiro Koizumi could vote in the November U.S. presidential election, the Japanese prime minister would almost certainly cast his ballot for his diplomatic soul mate, President Bush. Koizumi has closely linked his security policy to the Republican president, spending considerable political capital to back the war in Iraq and send troops there on a risky non-combat mission -- despite opposition from Japan's own voters".

Sweden: I have just put up here a translated newspaper article from Sweden showing how astoundingly little young Swedish communists actually know about communism. It doesn't say much for Swedish education (or perhaps it tells us a lot!)

Israeli blogger David Boxenhorn wonders why intellectuals so often arrive at stupid conclusions. The still strong support for Communism among American university professors would be a primary example of that. David offers seven possible reasons why they are so stupid but I think there is only one main reason: Arrogance. They have to be pretty bright to get to be professors so they then think they know it all. And it offends their ego to realize that they have nothing to say on the big issues other than what plain folk have been saying for years. So most of what they say is just a pathetic attempt to be clever. I go into it all in more detail here.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They have put up a man whose policies seem to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though they have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftism is for most Leftists a desire to sound good rather than a desire to do good
