123,664.  The liberal class functions as a kind of safety valve in moment of distress … They never critique the system.  (Corporation & United States of America & Liberal & Democracy)  Chris Hedges, lecture Seattle University 2018, Corporate Totalitarianism: The End Game *****

 

 

108,304.  Power-elites tolerate liberal institutions and tolerate the liberal class so that they’re not completely tone-deaf to the suffering of those outside the power-elite, but at the same time they are used to discredit radical movements that challege traditional structures and assumptions.  Chris Hedges, lecture Portland Oregon, CSpan 2010

 

108,305.  The failure of the liberal class to stand up on behalf of the weak and the sick, to challenge the perverted idea nothing is sacred, that everything is a commodity.  ibid.

 

 

122.  I’m sick and tired of hearing about all of the radicals and the perverts and the liberals and the leftists and the communists coming out of the closet.  It’s time for God’s people to come out of the closet, out of the churches and change America.  (God & Liberal & Communist & Church & United States of America)  James Robison, Christian televangelist, with Ronald Regan in attendance

 

 

90,983.  Now, that brings me to the Liberal Party.  I gather that during the last few days there have been some ill-natured jokes about their new symbol, a bird of some kind, adopted by the Liberal Democrats at Blackpool.  Politics is a serious business, and one should not lower the tone unduly.  So I will say only this of the Liberal Democrat symbol and of the party it symbolises.  This is an ex-parrot.  It is not merely stunned.  It has ceased to be, expired and gone to meet its maker.  It is a parrot no more.  It has rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible.  This is a late parrot.  And now for something completely different.  (Thatcher & Liberal)  Margaret Thatcher, speech conference October 1990

 

 

21,879.  Everybody’s a liberal these days ... Get with it.  (GBH Films & Liberal)  Black Caesar 1973 starring Fred Williamson & Art Lund & Julius W Harris & Gloria Hendry & D’Urville Martin & Minnie Gentry & Philip Roye & William Wellman junior & Don Predro Colley, director Larry Cohen, dude to bent rozzer

 

 

29,726.  One day we will get them.  We’ll get them on the ground where we want them.  And we’ll stick our heels in.  Step on them hard and twist – right, Chuck, right?  Henry knows what I mean.  Get them on the floor and step on them, crush them, show no mercy.  (Nixon & Liberals)  Richard Nixon, of Liberals

 

 

49,603.  Social democracy, in short, is its own grave-digger, and the pit is now deep and black.  It is worth dwelling at length on the careers of illusionists like Herbert Morrison if only to harden our resolve to build socialism on the rocks of workplace organisation and direct action which Morrison so detested.  (Socialism & Liberalism)  Paul Foot, Portrait of an Appalling Man

 

 

59,227.  The Church of England now condemned all the doctrines of Whigism as false, seditious and impious, and declared most of them heretical and blasphemous as well.  (Anglicanism & Liberalism)  Monarchy by David Starkey: Return of the King

 

 

59,233.  That Britain today is a liberal society is largely because of the philosophy and outlook of the Anglican Church, which did so much to shape our core values in the past few centuries.  (Anglicanism & Liberalism)  Robert Winston

 

 

68,290.  Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear.  (Conservative & Liberalism)  William E Gladstone

 

 

79,111.  June Whitfield:  I’m a liberal.

 

Terry Scott:  Good God.  70s sketch

 

 

79,112.  I still find the word liberal very smug and disappointing.  Christopher Hitchens, In Confidence

 

 

108,196.  Liberals are getting mushier all the time.  Christopher Hitchens, interview C-Span 1983    

 

 

79,113.  I have always said, the first Whig was the Devil.  Samuel Johnson, James Boswell’s Life of Samuel Johnson

 

 

79,114.  I have the good fortune to be the first Liberal leader for over half a century who is able to say to you at the end of our annual assembly: go back to your constituencies and prepare for government.  David Steel, speech 18th September 1981

 

 

79,115.  This may well be the most powerful and most dangerous ideology we have ever known because it’s open-ended.  This is liberalism.  I’m not denying the virtues of liberalism, far from it.  We are all beneficiaries of them.  But if we deny its dangers, its open-ended project, and the all-consuming power of its propaganda, then we deny our right to the true democracy.  Because liberalism and true democracy are not the same.  Liberalism began as a cult of the elite in the nineteenth century, and true democracy is never handed down by elites.  It is always fought for and struggled for.  (also Democacy)  John Pilger, author Freedom Next Time, Socialism Chicago 2007

 

 

79,116.  The Liberal government was dying with extreme reluctance and considerable skill; you might almost consider it healthy, unless you took a very close look, and it had erected such a fence around it of procrastination and promises that a close look was almost impossible to obtain.

 

The workers were simply dissatisfied with it, they could hardly tell why; and indeed that fine old Liberal Hegelianism of at once believing in freedom and not believing in freedom was beyond the understanding of all but the elect.  To interfere in the questions of pensions, of health, strikes, education, conditions of labour – ah yes this could be done; to destroy the absolute powers of the Lords, to cripple the vast landed estates – such actions were highly desirable; but to insist that employers should pay a living wage?  That was a frightful impairment of freedom.  George Dangerfield, The Strange Death of Liberal England

 

 

79,117.  The liberals can understand everything but people who don’t understand them.  Lenny Bruce

 

 

79,118.  Liberal: a power worshipper without power.  George Orwell

 

 

79,119.  The liberals must realize that they themselves are oppressed if they are true liberals and therefore must fight for their own freedom and not that of the nebulous ‘they’ with whom they can hardly claim identification.  The liberal must apply himself with absolute dedication to the idea of educating his white brothers.  Steve Biko

 

 

79,120.  In bygone days, commanders were taught that when in doubt, they should march their troops towards the sound of gunfire.  I intend to march my troops towards the sound of gunfire.  Jo Grimmond, leader of Liberal Party 14th September 1963

 

 

79,121.  The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.  Proverbs 11:25

 

 

79,122.  Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.  William F Buckley junior

 

 

79,123.  A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel.  Robert Frost

 

 

79,125.  Liberalism itself has failed, and for a pretty good reason.  It has been too often compromised by the people who represented it.  Hunter S Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72   

 

 

79,126.  Reality has a well-known liberal bias.  (Liberalism & Reality) Stephen Colbert, White House correspondents' association dinner 2006

 

 

79,127.  I have never seen a class so deeply demoralised, so incurably debased by selfishness, so corroded within, so incapable of progress, as the English bourgeoisie; and I mean by this, especially the bourgeoisie proper, particularly the Liberal, Corn Law repealing bourgeoisie.  For it nothing exists in this world, except for the sake of money, itself not excluded.  It knows no bliss save that of rapid gain, no pain save that of losing gold.  In the presence of this avarice and lust of gain, it is not possible for a single human sentiment or opinion to remain untainted.  (Liberal & Bourgeoisie)  Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England 1845

 

 

79,128.  It came to me a little while ago what we really are, we liberals.  We demand reforms, we want to improve the situation of the underprivileged – why?  To make them better off materially?  Nuts.  It’s only to make ourselves feel less guilty.  We rend our garments, we’re eager to show how willing we are to accept any outrageous demand so long as its black, or youthful, or put up by someone who thinks he’s got a grievance.  We want to appease everybody – you know what a liberal is?  A liberal is a guy who walks out of the room when the fight starts.  Brian Garfield, Death Wish 1972
