        There is no arrogance like liberal arrogance. Nowhere in the conservative world is there anything to match it. Liberals are certain that they know more, understand more, are more tolerant and more compassionate than anyone else. Therefore, there is no inclination for a liberal judge to allow democracy to determine society’s values. During the survivalist craze of the early ’s, extremist political movements were thriving. There was the Christian Patriots Defense League, which insisted that white Americans, not Jews, were God’s chosen people. In preparation for a race war .

        How can values that are universal — i.e., for people of all races — be racist? The charge is meaningless since people of all races affirm Judeo-Christian values. In fact, outside the United States, whites, being largely secular, are the race least likely to affirm these values. What about “arrogant” or “chauvinistic”?
