The Peace Movement Isn't About Peace By: David Horowitz
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, April 07, 2003

It’s about carrying on the left’s war against America. When your country is attacked, when the enemy has targeted every American regardless of race, gender or age for death, there can be no "peace" movement. There can only be a movement that divides Americans and gives aid and comfort to our enemies.

In his speech to Congress after 9/11, the President said: "We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th Century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism."

The so-called "peace movement" today is led by the same radicals who supported America’s totalitarian enemies during the Cold War. They marched in support of the Vietcong, the Sandinista Marxists and the Communist guerrillas in El Salvador. Before that they marched in behalf of Stalin and Mao. They still support ("critically" of course) Castro and the nuclear lunatic in North Korea, Kim Jong-Il. Whatever their reservations about the cruel regime of Saddam Hussein, they are willing to stand between him and the justice he so richly deserve.

What prompts American radicals to make common cause with such monsters? The answer is obvious: They share a common view of America as the "Great Satan." They believe that "in the last analysis" it is America – not tyrants like Saddam Hussein – who inflicts misery and suffering on the world's oppressed. The targets of the 9/11 terrorists were Wall Street and the Pentagon. The enemy of Saddam is the regime in Washington. These were the targets of American radicals long before the second Gulf War began.

In the perverse minds of the so-called "peace" radicals, America is the "root cause" of all the root causes that inspire the terrorists to attack us. America is to blame for what is wrong in the world. The enemy is us.

Today, as our troops encircle Baghdad, these familiar chants rise from urban streets and collegiate platforms across the nation. Just as they did in the Cold War past.

During the Cold War, the radical "peace" movement bullied right-thinking Americans into silence. Our government lost the ability to stay the course in the anti-Communist war. The result was the Communist slaughter of two-and-a-half million peasants in Indo-China after the divisions at home forced America to leave.

Once again, the left is attempting to divide the home front in the face of the enemy. Even as we are at war. It is stabbing our young men and women in the back even as they face enemy fire in order to defend us.

For those who love their freedom and who appreciate how vital America is to the freedom of others, it is time to stand up and be counted.
