Having inflicted so many bad decisions and wrong-headed policies on our nation’s security, you might think that President Obama and his team would be content to rest on their depredations. But they are ideologues, which means they never tire of doing their best to do the worst.

Their ideology was first defined by the late Jeane Kirkpatrick in her speech to the 1984 Republican Convention. In it, she characterized liberals as the “blame America first” crowd. For example, she said:

When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the “blame America first crowd” didn’t blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States. But then, they always blame America first.… The American people know better.

We did then and we still do now.

In the three decades since her speech, the liberal ideology has evolved. It now requires that America not only be blamed first for all of the world’s ills, but that America is the only blameworthy entity.

This goes far beyond political correctness which is, after all, the conformity of cowards. It is a mindset with which Obama and his fellow radicals have infected our allies, our military, and our media. This liberal ideology mandates an answer to a Marxist (Chico, not Karl) question: “Who ya gonna believe, me or your own eyes?”

The reason they all parrot this obvious falsehood is that for them to do otherwise would be to admit that something other than America is to blame for the atrocities of terrorists. This they cannot do without admitting the comprehensive falsehood of their view of the world.
