It’s not the end of liberalism

The paroxysms of the conservative blog world about NPR canning Juan Williams keeps revolving around the theme that “It’s the end of liberalism”.  To use a term I’ve used before:

Pppfffftttt.

It’s not the end of liberalism.  It’s the end of the Left pulling off the pretense of being liberal.  There is nothing liberal about the political Left.  Not in the sense of classical liberalism.  There is nothing progressive about the political left.  For decades now, the political Left has claimed the heritage of Jefferson, Madison and the other founders of the Republic.  It worked for people who who weren’t paying attention.  But to those of us who were, it was pretty transparent that they supported the idea of personal liberties only for anybody who slavishly followed their staggeringly narrow world view.
