And a standing O for John Howard...we need to get him back out of the dugout after this homer


PRIME Minister John Howard has launched a scathing attack on Australia's left-wing intelligentsia, questioning its loyalty to the nation over the past decades.

In a speech delivered last night for the 50th anniversary of the conservative magazine Quadrant, Mr Howard said the left had a history of denigrating the nation and was now doing the same with the war in Iraq, describing Islamic terrorism as the new tyranny.

He said Australian universities were still breeding leftists and described pro-communists of decades past as “ideological barrackers for regimes of oppression opposed to Australia and its interests”, Fairfax reports today.

Mr Howard said the left was wrong in its view that the Cold War was an equal struggle between the ideologies of the United States and the Soviet Union.

“It became the height of intellectual sophistication to believe that people in the West were no less oppressed than people under the yoke of communist dictatorship,” Mr Howard said in his speech.

Mr Howard praised Quadrant for its record of countering “stultifying orthodoxies and dangerous utopias that have, at times, gripped the Western intelligentsia”

The Aussies seems to be standing up for European civilisation while the actual Europeans have 'assumed the position' for a good rogering by the Muzzies.

Here's a perceptive article on the Islamic cultural attack on the west:

'Violent Islam, cowardly Europe: from the cartoons to Regensburg'
by Samir Khalil Samir S.J.

Samir Khalil Samir, S.J. is an Egyptian Jesuit scholar familiar with Pope Benedict XVI and obviously given his homeland, Islam.
