U.S. 'Dictatorship' Had No 'Search Warrant' for Saddam, Boston Globe Moans
NewsMax.com ^ | 12/17/03 | Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

Posted on 12/17/2003 3:37:19 PM PST by kattracks

Derrick Z. Jackson, one of the most left-wing columnists for the left-wing Boston Globe, wrote today: "The invasion was still a lie. The capture of Saddam Hussein changes nothing about that. There were too many forked tongues in the road to his lair. The way we removed the dictator, we became a global dictatorship."

According to dizzy D.Z.: "With no weapons, no ties, and no truth, the capture of Saddam was merely the most massive and irresponsible police raid in modern times. We broke in without a search warrant. Civilian deaths constituted justifiable homicide. America was again above the law. We have taught the next generation that many wrongs equal a right. In arrogance, we boasted, 'We got him!' The shame is that we feel none for how we got him. The capture of this dictator, driven by the poison of lies, turned America itself into a dictator."

And the elitists of American journalism just can't understand why Americans despise them.

But we'll give Jackson the benefit of the doubt: Surely his latest rant is a parody of a satire of a spoof of the addled brain of a blame-America-first leftist pseudointellectual.

I'm sure Saddam is "deeply saddened" that the nonsense the Left has been spewing turned out to be utterly false and misleading. I'm sure he was relying on it. ; )

Is there a "Who's the Most Ridiculous Liberal" contest going on or what?

They appear to be tripping over one-another to be the most ludicrous, and this clown just may have made it to the play-offs with this garbage.

I know many liberals/democrats/leftists. They won't admit it, but they despise this country and they have the most incredible sympathies for the worst scum on Earth. Within 24 hours of Sadaam's capture, they were making crazy arguments that he couldn't be tried because iraq didn't have a constitution in place. I wanted to know why they were making up such arguments
to protect a man who was a dictator, torturer, mass murderer, aggressor & serial rapist. The argument was lost on them. They wanted to know where my regard for "justice" had gone. As if it would be "just" to stop a nation from bringing a despot to trial.

What does the "Z" stand for?

Never mind, I figured it out--it stands for A$$hole.

A liberal rag like the Globe needs an Angry Black Man to give them cred..
The Globe has Derrick Z., the Times has Bob Herbert. The trouble is, Derrick Z. is getting more and more incoherent every year. They'd be better miking some guy yelling on the street, and transcribing it into a column.

turned America itself into a dictator

Can the quality of being a dictator transcend an individual and adhere to a group? The correct answer is no. The author of this phrase has shown that the gods of logic are not with him today.

Ah, yes. The wonderful liberals again display a command of logic that should be the envy of rational beings throughout the universe.

In Liberal Land if your country deposes dictators, well, it goes without saying that your country is, by definition, a dictatorship.

No. What they really mean to say is that it isn't the "right kind" of dictatorship, namely a liberal/Stalinist dictatorship.

I truly believe we should of killed Saddam when we found him. The moaning and groaning from liberals would have been at a high pitch for a week or two, but it would eventually have died down. Now with Saddam alive and a trial probably a year away we are going to have incessant whining from the liberals about the whole process and whether it is fair or not. Time will tell but we are going to be bombarded with liberal talk on this for months to come.

I read the original article before a Moderator removed it. It was poisonous, all right, but I think it should have been left up, because we really need to know the worst about our enemies, and the Globe is a big-city newspaper, not some fly-by-night outfit.

It's a sad commentary on the state of the media when you see stuff like this.

No, but I think it would be a good thread to start. The problem: so many nominations...so little time to document.

Why would the military need a search warrant when the owner of the property is the one who narc'ed Saddam out.

I think Derrick Z. Jackson got hopped up on radical and ethnic rhetoric in the late 1960s/early 1970s and hasn't kicked the habit yet.

Will somebody tell him it's the 21st century and check him into a 21-step program. The Fight the Power! critique is as old as the hills.

Sheesh.

Civilian deaths constituted justifiable homicide. America was again above the law. We have taught the next generation that many wrongs equal a right.

I'll bet he isn't the least bit interested in civilian deaths at the hands of Saddams and his police state thugs. Or unprovoked deaths of US citizens? Those deaths are just what - the balance of nature? Ask the Kurds about justifiable homicide.

How nice for him to sit in his ivory tower amongst his elitist group and show disdain. Wonder how he would have written about Stalin or Hitler a generation or 2 ago? Probably the same thing. I think millions of Russians, Jews and others would have been glad to have their oppressors removed in a timely fashion. Just like the photos of jubiliant Iraqis demonstrate, that the mainstream media tries so hard to hide.

I am tongue tied with disgust. Please, someone, post this a**hole's relevant information so we can inform him of our opinion of his drivel, his shame, his treachery, his stupidity, his love of evil, his hard hearted siding with a devil.

Maybe we could inform his employer - The Boston Globe - what we think of their spokesman.
