I Keep Telling You These People Hate America

So don't listen to me, listen to them in their own words. The introduction is from Little Green Footballs:

How much do the lunatics at Daily Kos hate their own country? So much that a diary posted yesterday actually argues that The United States needs to be invaded - not just invaded - occupied.

Because, according to the Daily Kos diarist, being invaded, slaughtered, and occupied is the only way we’ll become a nation of compassionate pacifists.

Any questions?

Well doggies. That worked SO WELL for the French didn't it? Not to mention the Egyptians under ancient Rome and the Koreans who were subjugated by the Chinese. Fun stuff. I was particularly enamored of the writers nom de plume, Professor Fate. I remember that name and you can find his picture here:

Incidentally, if you wanted to counter his commentary, you could always take the name "The Great Leslie" Oh man, "The Great Race" was one of my favorite movies growing up. My parents used to take us to the drive-in and pack a picnic supper. We would get bored and fall asleep in the back. But this was the first movie I recall watching all the way through. The second was "What Did You Do In The War, Daddy"

They're not anti-war. They're just on the other side...

I used to get pretty exercised about the kind of diatribes linked too from Little Green Footballs but I've come around to an understanding that the diatribists and their diatribes are unintentional evidence of the hollowness of their claims.

These folks aren't fighting a revolution. There aren't any gun battles in their futures. In fact, the primary reason we hear from them is because they are courting no risk at all. They expect to be able to pop off without repercussions, citing their right to freedom of speech and they'd be horrified and terrified at the prospect of having to do anything more substantive then turn red in the face to secure those rights.

What that hyperbole represents is the sort of entertainment one gets from a roller coaster: the form, and thrill, of danger without its substance.

These people hate America about as much as a spoiled child hates their parents.

I agreed with you up to the very end. I think they *do* hate America, but are cowards.

There was a day when the likes of this column would have been labeled sedition and prosecuted.

Heck, there was a day when such a column would have been labveled as defeatism and resulted in social ostracism.

Instead, on the Left, it is labeled as "dissent" -- which they claim to be "the highest form of patriotism."

And no doubt what OJ did to Nicole was the highest form of love.
