How Embarrassing Is It To Be A So-Called Liberal In The Midst of a Holy War?

November 10, 2009

Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley knows the real cause of the Fort Hood Massacre.

Why is it that when a so-called liberal opens his mouth about the Ft. Hood massacre by a Muslim jihadist I know that I’m going to feel less safe? The corrupt mayor of Chicago (and presidential patron) blames the shooting of 41 soldiers — at the deployment center for the wars against Muslim jihadists in Afghtanistan and Iraq — on the alleged fact that “America loves guns.”

As if the traitor Hasan had not clearly and unequivocally renounced his American citizenship and declared war on his own country because it was not a Muslim state. As if there were not in fact NO GUNS ALLOWED on the Fort Hood base, which is why his soldier (!) victims were unarmed and therefore someone didn’t shoot him dead after his first blast. What is wrong with American so-called liberals that they proudly expose themselves in public as idiots when it comes to the holy Muslim war that has been declared against us? That they just don’t get it? And they don’t.

The New York Times website devoted a whole column to summarizing the debate on the “motives” of the traitor, including a sampling from this blog, which provides a good picture of the mush that has replaced the brains of such otherwise respected leftwing pundits as the Atlantic‘s James Fallows who wrote a column on the attack titled “The Meaninglessness of the Shootings.” Veteran leftist Michael Tomasky writes in the leftwing Guardian,

So if indeed Hasan was an America-hating extremist, what are we to make of it?

And concludes nothing. “America-hating extremist” would be an accurate description of some of Tomasky’s friends — perhaps former friends — at the Village Voice where he once worked. But it is hardly an adequate description of Hasan from what we already know. He thought of himself as a soldier in a global army that has declared war on Americans and Jews in the first place, but also on all infidels in the name of Islam. That puts a somewhat different color on it, Michael. This extremist said to an audience of doctors in university lecture (a military university no less) that those who do not believe in Islam should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.

And liberals are too polite (too “politically correct”?) to notice. Actually it’s not polite that they are (they are actually quite rude) but in denial. And why is that? It is the same denial that progressives maintained through the 70 years of the Communist nightmare, denial that mass slaughters were being conducted by their Soviet comrades, that Russia and China were vast prison camps, and that the same fate awaited us in the West if we didn’t wage a cold war against their expansionist designs. It does sound familiar doesn’t it? The only mystery is why progressives (so-called) like Tomasky and Fallows (and President Obama) should bend over backwards to protect medieval psychos — and I am speaking of here of the tens of millions — of Muslims who idolize Osama Bin Laden, Hamas, and Hizbollah and embrace their genocidal agendas. There is only one possible answer to this question and that is to one degree or another leftists regard America as the Great Satan and Israel as the Little Satan or believe at the very least that the policies of these two countries are the real cause of the violence against them.

Norman Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading
American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the
Socialist Party of America. He was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in
1911. As a candidate for President of the U. S., Norman Thomas said, in a
1944 epoch speech:
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened..”
He went on to say:
“I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

    Under the guise of change, the Democratic Party thinks they have acheived their goals to enslave the American people forgetting one thing, THEY LOVE THEIR FREEDOMS.

    So, now, while as trusting folks, we finally realize what has transpired and those in power who refuse to take a refresher course on the contitutional laws they govern under shall be removed from office by the ballot or any other legal means at the disposal of the people.

    The American People are tired of being lied to!

    Note the cavalier flippancy with which Michael Tomasky writes his drivel. If you read the whole article, it’ll make you sick.

    I debated a “liberal” today who tried the line that Hasan “got” PTSD from the soldiers he was “counseling.” This is what the Left has become. In her world, Hasan “caught” PTSD as if it were the swine flu; she was all the while clueless that, according to numerous reports, Hasan was hostile to his patients and tried imputing guilt to them about fighting radical Islam.

    Not sure how we started talking about terrorism and ended up talking about Norman Thomas’s socialism. Not sure that David’s inclusion of Thomas’s 1944 speech squares with David’s arguments generated elsewhere that ‘everything went wrong in the 60s.’ Not sure about the rather grand narrative that had we not waged a Cold War on Communism, that ‘the same fate awaited us.’ It makes great press, but it smells a bit too much like an antiquated domino theory (which, by the way David, was a theory of the Democrats, not the Republicans). And finally, not sure how, if Tomasky described Hasan as an ‘American-hating extremist’, that qualifies Tomasky as ‘bending over backwards to protect medieval psychos.’ I could go on, but this exercise in dismantling the extremist rhetoric of FPM is making my fingers tired.

    You should have read Tomasky’s entire article to see how casually he talks about Hasan in the context of America- hating and terrorism.

    You claim to be getting tired over “dismantling the extremist rhetoric of FPM,” so let me ask you a question: What do you think of the extremist rhetoric of Hasan himself? Do you think that makes him an Islamist? My point is: are you more willing to label a conservative website “extremist” than someone who holds demonstrably extremist views?

    To those who know their history today is Armistice Day, the day when the WAR TO END ALL WARS ended in Europe in 1918. World War 1 was started when a Muslim (Gavrilo Princip) assassinated Archduke Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo in 1914. For nearly 3 years the United States at least officially stayed clear of the war, until 1917 when the US Congress declared war. In the year and one half of American involved which brought an end to the fighting over 117,000 Americans died, and another nearly 206, 000 were wounded in a war that claimed over 9 million deaths, and over 21 million wound.

    Today we are over 8 years since we were attacked by MUSLIM Jihadists, since Congress again declared war in Public Law 107-40 (S.J. RES 23) on 18 September 2001. Since that time over 12,500 American have died in the War of Terror in battlefields which included the original attacks on 9-11, Afghanistan, Iraq, Philippines, North Africa, and now even our largest military base in the heart of the United States.

    As a Veteran myself and a father of two sons who are serving on active duty in the US military I am appalled at the Jihadist massacre of our soldiers at Ft. Hood. My eldest son has made multiple combat tours since the start of the war. Both his mother and I have always breathed easier when he returned to his base in the US, formerly Ft. Hood, now Ft. Bragg because we felt he was home and as such SAFE. Yet as we learn this past week our soldiers are not safe at their bases in the US because of terrorist not foreign but home grown. The massacre at Ft. Hood was conducted by an American Jihadist who was educated by American tax dollars, trained by our military and ignored by the very security structure we were told would protected us from this type of attack in the future, the Department of Homeland security. In our attempt not to offend any with our politically correctness we have allowed this massacre to happen.

    I was sickened in the past week by new reports by the FBI still as the shooting were occuring or very shortly thereafter that this massacre was not a TERRRORIST ATTACK. I was further offended when I was the coverage of the President of the United States in his visit to Ft. Hood nearly a week later also not call this massacre what it was, a Terrorist Attack by a Muslim Jihadist. When are we as Americans going to realize that we are still at WAR? That there are not just a few but at a minimum of hundreds of thousands and probably like millions of Muslim Jihadist both in this country and around the world who do not give a damn about our political correctness or our “touchy feely” hopes. They want to kill us because of whom and what we are and have achieved.

    I hope that is will not take an another attack in the country at a Walmart, mall or sporting event with MASS CASUALITIES to open the eyes of Americans to dangers within our own country and call for our government to quit is soft handling of our security.

    On this Veteran’s Day please take time to offer prayers to all of those who have given their all in the defense of your freedom and honor those who have served both in war and peace time so that you might be free.

    God Bless all our Veterans

    Mr. Kaltenhauser–
    Please thank your sons for their service to my family and our country.
    Thank you for connecting Archduke Ferdinand’s assasin to Islam. I’d never seen that before. That connection puts a whole new light on WWI.

    His Father was a crook and an bigoted anti-semite who wasn’t even beyond bellowing obscenities at a fellow Liberal Ribicoff just because he was a Jew – a stupid one perhaps, but for the Neo-Nazis of the Democratic Party, still a Jew.

    And sonny is NO better. He needs to remove his tongue from Boy Barry Bonzo’s arse crack.

    Even the DC Sniper embraced an Islamic name, yet we hear nothing about his beliefs in the news media. Later, today, we shall learn more if the government allows his letter to be made public.

    Good Lord, what is going on in this country? It is unbelievable.

    Jack, please give my heart felt thank you to your sons. Unfortunately, I have concluded that the Left embracing the radical Muslims is the philosophy of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. This is also seen in the obscene display of friendship and tolerance of dictators like Chavez, the Castro brothers, and other deadly despots that have embraced the Maoist philosophy. Forming an excuse and understanding of Hassan will not include the fact that a radical Muslim killer attacked American patriots on our soil during Obama’s watch. Further, the fact that Hassan’s behavior raised red flags and shot up flares for a long time will be ignored and replaced by “mental illness” instead of the truth that the enemy is in the ranks of the US government and Armed Services. Political correctness will overrule your and my safety for the sake of not ruffling the feathers of the Muslims (especially those that want to kill us). So this adminstration will upset those that dare to speak up and expose the truth and demand answers to the question of how this was ignored by so many.

    Jack: Thank you for your service to our country and thank your sons for their service to our country.

    I wanted to send an email to Pelosi today-Veteran’s Day-to remind her there is no honor among theives. She and the Democratic Party are stealing our wealth, property, rights and freedom and our future as a democratic republic which dishonor all of the men and women who have sacrificed and given their lives in the name of democracy and freedom. Her website is not functioning today which I can’t help believe is a purposeful act so that those of us who actually honor our veteran’s and current military, rather than people of her ilk who dishonor them, our founding princiles and values, could convey that to her.

    God bless and keep safe all of our men and women in the military wherever they are.
