Cured from Leftism

Susan Sontag cleared her throat for the "courage" of the al Qaeda pilots. Norman Mailer pronounced the dead of Sept. 11 comparable to "automobile statistics." The events of that day were likely premeditated by the White House, Gore Vidal insinuated. Noam Chomsky insisted that al Qaeda at its most atrocious generated no terror greater than American foreign policy on a mediocre day.
At FrontPageMag, Keith Thompson tells of his voyage from Left to Normalcy. Like David Horowitz himself, once a true believer, now sane. I can't believe the insanities he's had to endure, or that it took him so long, but better late than never. Listen to this:
In the name of "diversity," the University of Arizona has forbidden discrimination based on "individual style." The University of Connecticut has banned "inappropriately directed laughter." Brown University, sensing unacceptable gray areas, warns that harassment "may be intentional or unintentional and still constitute harassment." (Yes, we're talking "subconscious harassment" here. We're watching your thoughts ...).
Apart from supporting all the wrong parties and people, why is the Left so ANTI liberal (liberal in the real sense of the word: Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded)?
