But I think conservatives have consistently been on the wrong side of history. Those in the present-day right-wing could have easily been pro-segregation, anti-suffrage, and even pro-slavery had they lived back when these were debated issues. The right-wing has historically fought to keep things the same; to maintain the status-quo in which they felt comfortable.
Even in today’s time, in light of the recent shootings against unarmed black men, I’ve seen conservatives ask why the “liberals” constantly protest everything.
I can’t speak for “liberals”…
…but I’ll always be on the side that fights for justice and equality, not on one that fights to keep things the same.
The former means putting an end to racial profiling. The latter means upholding stop & frisk.
The former means more funding for inner-city public schools to hone young people who would otherwise fall victim to crime. The latter would be to maintain lopsided funding for prisons into which misguided individuals are thrown.
So to all those who support Israel’s “right to existence” at the expense of Palestinians and “Arab Israelis,” and to all those who do not even want to acknowledge the term “Palestinian,” you are on the wrong side of history.
One day people will look back on present-day Israel as they currently do on apartheid South Africa. There will be change. And lots of it.
