Film director Woody Allen in an interview with the Spanish-language magazine La Vanguardia: "It would be good...if (Obama) could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly."

Geez! And to think I was a big fan of Woody Allen movies. The old ones anyway. Oh well, actually his comments are not surprising. In fact, they're useful as revelation, and not just of himself, but liberals generally.

I've always thought that, sooner or later, liberals reveal their impatience with government by consent. Democracy is too messy, involves too much give and take, demands too many compromises. This is ultimately unacceptable to a liberal as their self-understanding is one of undeniable and unchallengeable moral, philosophical, political, heck, even aesthetic superiority. If you disagree with them, then you must be mentally or morally deficient. Note how enthusiastically they embrace the nanny state in order to control you and how quickly they use the epithets of "racist" and "sexist" in order to discredit you. Hence, within every committed liberal there incubates a tyrant waiting to be born.

Enjoy their movies, when you can, but never trust'em.


  1. Well said, Sage. I've been eagerly awaiting your thoughts on Woody Allen's comment. While it was disappointing, it was hardly surprising. Hollywood seems to breed a mentality similar to his. The really unfortunate thing is that folks actually listen to these people!

  2. In his case, however, not so much anymore. Cheers!

  3. Once I asked a liberal why she didn't propose a Constitutional amendment if she wanted to legalize abortion. "Oh that's too slow," she said, waving her hand in dismissal. That's liberalism for you. Consent of the government doesn't matter. They want want they want and they want it now.
