Image result for liberal democracy losing its appeal“As we begin 2017, the most urgent threat to liberal democracy is not autocracy,” writes William Galston of The Wall Street Journal“it is illiberal democracy.”

Galston’s diagnosis is not wrong, and his alarm is not misplaced.

Yet why does America’s great export, liberal democracy, which appeared to be the future of the West if not of mankind at the Cold War’s end, now appear to be a church with a shrinking congregation?

Why is liberal democracy losing its appeal?

A front-page story about France’s presidential election, in the same day’s Journal, suggests an answer.

In the final round next May, the French election is likely to come down to a choice of Marine Le Pen or Francois Fillon.

Le Pen is the “let France be France” candidate of the National Front. Fillon is a traditionalist Catholic from northwest France, home to the martyred resistance of the Revolution — the legendary Vendee.

Fillon won practicing and nonpracticing Catholics alike by a landslide, and took 3 in 5 votes of those professing other faiths.

Le Pen wants France to secede from the EU and move closer to Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The five million Arabs and Muslims currently in France, the prospective arrival of millions more, and recent Islamic terrorist atrocities have all propelled her candidacy.

Fillon succeeded in his primary by identifying himself as a man of Catholic beliefs and values and an opponent of same-sex marriage and abortion. He does not repudiate secularism, but believes that the France that was “the eldest daughter of the church” should also be heard.

Together, what do the Le Pen and Fillon candidacies tell us?

France and Europe may be moving inexorably away from a liberal democratic, de-Christianized and militantly secularist America. If we are the future, less and less do France and Europe appear to want that future.

While our elites welcome the Third World immigration that is changing the face of America, France and Europe are recoiling from and reacting against it. The French wish to remain who and what they are, a land predominantly of one language, one culture, one people.

America preaches that all religions are equal and should be treated equally. France does not seem to share that liberal belief. And just as the Middle East seems to want no more churches or Christians, France and Europe appear to want no more mosques or Muslims.

Where America’s elites may celebrate same-sex marriage and “reproductive rights,” more and more Europeans are identifying with the social values of Putin’s Russia. Pro-Putin parties are surging in Europe. Pro-America parties have been facing losses and defections.

BRAVO!!!  EXCELLENT.  Is this Fat Commie Pig, Rosie O'Donald's Twin.

Alright ladies we should pass legislation to ensure you never have to wake up next to anything like this. Forgive me Lord for being so critical of those who don't bathe regularly or brush their funky mouths don't shave and get manly haircuts.
I think we'll start the redistribution with Moore's bank account's. They are so funny, they actually think someone will take them seriously. These idiots talk garbage and will never never redistribute theirs but will redistribute yours. So pitiful to wake from your delusion trapped in that mind.

I wish mankind could love half as much as these wonderful little pets.
Humans are the only fallen ones (fallen from Gods Grace). These little ones teach us how to love.
The Grace of God is as large as the universe. Thanks Lord for I have a lot of rough edges, I thank you for loving a wretch like me.

AMEN.  I've LOVED doing volunteer work with Operation Wild Life.  I've come to like wildlife more than any two-legged animals.  They don't share our worst traits: greed, envy, hate, lust, jealousy..............

You are so.right on. Love the tree stand hour or two before the sun comes up, that's my Cathedral all the noises of the timber before sunup. Love the Bared Owls, Great Horned Owls. Turkey and owls fighting over roosting rights in the trees. I will have to look up Operation Wild Life. Have been a bow hunter about 30 years the least important is taking the game.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Congressman Calls Trump ‘Psychopath’
For Saying Out Loud What Rational-Minded Americans
Are Thinking About FBI

Democrats have become so unhinged over their hatred for President Donald Trump that they think nothing of calling the commander in chief a “psychopath.”

Case in point, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who took great exception to Trump saying out loud what most rational minded Americans are already thinking when it comes to the FBI.

The president took to Twitter on Saturday to state the obvious, that it’s unacceptable that the FBI failed to follow up on a credible tip about the Parkland, Fla., high school gunman who killed 17 people, and that the bureau has been too distracted in “trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.”

“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!,” Trump tweeted.

 The FBI released a statement acknowledging that protocols were not followed when the tip that may have saved 17 lives was recieved.

“On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him,” the bureau said in a statement. “The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”

As for the “signals” the president referenced, the killer could not have screamed his intentions any louder than he did in the weeks leading up to last week’s shooting.

But this proved to be inconsequential to Congressman Gallego, an Iraq War veteran who responded to the president’s post by declaring “America will regret the day you were ever born.”

“You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born,” he tweeted. 

You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born.

Gallego, who announced in 2016 he was divorcing his wife while she was pregnant with their first child, criticized Trump is a second tweet for commenting on a news conference held by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who said that no Americans had knowledge of the efforts of 13 Russian nationals indicted last week for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The lawmaker noted that “children are being buried today.”

Of course, that didn’t stop the hypocrite from tweeting his support for pro-abortion Democratic women running for office on the same day “children are being buried.”
