What is a liberal?
Reader comment on item: IPT Exclusive: Qatar's Insidious Influence on the Brookings Institution

Submitted by Loud Liberal, Dec 1, 2014 08:57

As a liberal, I find this story very troubling. I thought that The Brookings Institute was a liberal think tank, at least, compared to far, right wing propagandists like The Heritage Foundation (nothing elitist in that name), FreedomWorks, Club for Growth, Cato Institute, etc., etc. etc. However, the truth is that you cannot be a liberal (or a liberal think tank), and at the same time, support the most far, right wing, conservative, radical, extremism in the World - neo-Nazi, arab, islamist, fundamentalist, jihadi, terrorism, against Israel which, by any measure, is one of the most liberal democracies in the World. It is impossible. These positions are mutually exclusive and irreconcilable. Accordingly, The Brookings Institute must, likewise, be a conservative think tank.
