Years ago, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was considered a leading liberal of our country. But he was strongly nationalistic and believed in the best of American values. Some might argue that many of his policies supported big government, but they were not socialistic in nature.
Since the early days of the 20th century, however, leftist (translate socialist and communist) operatives have been slowly working to co-opt the label of liberal to mean something else entirely. Classic liberalism was distinctly different in that it supported capitalism, national sovereignty, and western civilization’s many achievements.
What the leftists of today attempt to do is disguise themselves as “liberals” while doing everything they can to destroy borders, free enterprise, individual freedom, and most everything about Western Civilization.
Watch as Dennis Prager lays it all out and make clear distinctions between the two.
