As we touched limited history of liberalism in Part 1, here we continue to decode liberalism and what it became eventually diverting from the core values.

In late 1990s in US when Clinton Administration was in its second term, left fringe regrouped and penetrated Clinton administration in the garb of left leaning NGOs, think-tanks and started making its presence felt in the US where communism was detested. This notion is validated in this article on how many foundations were funding left-wing politics which were undemocratic.

Excerpt from the article:
Ford Foundation. This foundation consistently supports causes Henry Ford would never have supported and has become one of the largest donors to Tides, giving them millions of dollars since 1997. Not only that, but the Ford Motor company itself also gives to Tides.

And we have already seen how groups like Green-peace and Ford foundations became political tools propagating left fringe ideologies with the help of US administration under Obama.

But how these left group acquired a seat in the power circles and why they diverted from Liberal thoughts. This question is something which was touched upon in this 2013 article by Anita Crane where she argues on how Muslim Brotherhood penetrated into US policy making in 1990s.

This phenomenon of Muslim Brotherhood, being close to power circles in US, saw at its peak in 2012 under the ‘Liberal Regime of Obama’ that tried to internationally criminalize any criticism of Islam. US being one of the most aggressive propagators of Liberal ideas saw this kind of non-secular move as part of their liberal ideas. But this penetration didn’t state in 1990s but much before as pointed out in this article.

We need to understand here one main point that communism which was almost sidelined by US and many other democratic countries took help of the Political Radical Islamic thinking to penetrate liberal idea which we are seeing now. However, the signs were there from early on. This 2002 article points out how Marx (read communism) has turned Muslim.

Except:
Islamic fundamentalism is not an indigenous growth. It is an exotic hybrid, bred from the encounter of sections of the Islamic intelligentsia with radical western ideologies. In A Fury for God, Malise Ruthven shows that Sayyid Qutb, an Egyptian executed after imprisonment in 1966 and arguably the most influential ideologue of radical Islam, incorporated many elements derived from European ideology into his thinking. For example, the idea of a revolutionary vanguard of militant believers does not have an Islamic pedigree. It is “a concept imported from Europe, through a lineage that stretches back to the Jacobins, through the Bolsheviks and latter-day Marxist guerrillas such as the Baader-Meinhof gang”.

If you see the current composition you will find that Liberals have the elements of Communists, Islamists and Anarchists who have over the years with time taken over the liberal thinking and changed its core. The core of freedom of speech and freedom of religion also mean that state of secular and shouldn’t be favoring anyone religion. But as we have seen this isn’t the case now. Liberals all over the Europe are trying to make sure that people who criticize Islamic wrong doings are labeled as islamophobic.

This new liberalism is destroying modern civilizations around the world as seen in parts of Europe where no one is ready to accept that they have faltered. Europe which after the cold war rejected communism is now facing even greater problem where governments and leaders are afraid to take bull by the horn. And this is the reason why now Far-right forces are also gaining momentum politically around the world.

When Donald Trump won the presidency as a backlash to this wrong liberal theory which was far from liberalism, the so-called liberals started protesting, led by Linda Sarsour, an avid supporter of Sharia which is the cornerstone of radical Islam. First time in the history of US one can see people supporting Hijab which is anything but progressive; yet used as a symbol of freedom and liberalism during women’s march. They were joined by left leaning people or apathetics who don’t care for a thing in the world.

Some tweets of Linda Sarsour

In India, Left wing has enjoyed the corridors of power since India became independent. Even though Left of India wasn’t as progressively Islamic till the 1990s, all this changed when our former Prime Minister Shri Manmohan Singh ji of Congress government (self-proclaimed Liberals) said that Muslims must have first right on India’s resources, which is against the secular values of liberalism where state doesn’t differentiate on the basis of religion. After the win of Modi in 2014 this ideology has a taken a hit and is seen shrinking with each passing elections. People are getting more and more aware of the wrong form of liberalism being pedaled by Indian Left.

In conclusion, we are yet to see the final form of this new and hybrid liberalism which is toxic mix of everything which isn’t liberal but anti-liberal which is becoming a toxic cocktail of everything which no democratic person should be supporting in the right frame of mind.

And this isn’t the end as this phenomenon might get worse in the coming years if not course corrected. We have just touched the tip of the iceberg, by focusing mostly on how things turned from bad to worse in US politically. But this is the story of every progressively liberal country in the world whether it’s Germany or France or Sweden.

Few days ago we saw an attack in Sweden and the headlines of attack were about ‘Vehicular Terrorism’. This alone tells the story of how liberalism has taken a back seat.
