Michael Berg Is Insane!
By Judson Cox (05/20/04)

Few people take Michael Savage seriously when he claims “liberalism is a mental disease.” But, how else would you describe a man who, after watching al Qaida cut off his son´s head, blames President Bush and describes his son´s murderers as “sick people” who have “some good in them”?

How do liberals like Mr. Berg blame President Bush for al Qaida killing three thousand people on 9-11? Do the terrorists bear none of the blame – are they also sick people with some good in them? How can liberals equate the deaths of over half a million Iraqis, tortured and killed by Saddam Hussein, to the deviant actions of 12 American prison guards? How can they continue to deny Saddam´s links to al Qaida?

U.S. District Court judge Harold Baer, has made a legal finding that Iraq was behind the 9-11 attacks. His ruling was upheld by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
According to Czech intelligence, Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi intelligence agents in Prague just prior to the 9-11 attacks.

Papers found in Iraqi intelligence headquarters document Saddam's efforts to establish a relationship with al-Qaida. Osama bin Laden´s top aid visited Iraq in 1998 at Saddam´s request.

How can they say that military courts are insufficient to punish 12 prison guards, but too harsh for terrorists and enemy combatants? How is it that they always find excuses for the actions of our enemies, but always manage to condemn our soldiers? Why do they insist that every picture of every act of abuse committed by 12 American prison guards be made public to make America look as bad as possible, but do everything in their power to prevent everything from the 9-11 footage to the execution of Nick Berg from being shown? Why will they not admit that we are at war with an enemy that seeks to destroy us? How can they contend that the war in Iraq is a racist, imperialist “war for oil,” when our dead lay piled in the streets, killed by terrorists loyal to, and funded by, Saddam Hussein?

Liberals insist that America is complicit in a “cycle of violence.” They see America as the aggressor, much as do the al Qaida terrorists who beheaded Nick Berg, supposedly in retaliation for the Abu Grhaib prison abuses. What was the beheading of Daniel Pearl in retaliation for? How about the four American contractors who were burned, mutilated and dragged through the streets of Fallujah? What was the motivation for retaliation behind 9-11, the USS Cole bombing, the Marines killed in Yemen in 1992, the first World Trade Center attack, Khobar Towers, the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania or any other example from a list of Islamic terrorist bloodshed too long to enumerate? Liberals, like Madeline Albright, agree with the terrorists that all of these attacks against innocent Americans are in retaliation for the Crusades at their root!

Let´s look at the Crusades:
Muslims invaded Europe, and imposed their religion upon Westerners
by force. Christian armies drove them back. The Crusades lasted about 200 years, but freed Europe from Islamic rule for nearly 1,000 years. Islamic fascism has always been the aggressor.

It is gut check time for America. I urge each of you to watch the video of Nick Berg´s execution, and Daniel Pearl´s and 9-11. See the true face of our enemy. They have vowed to destroy us, and they are doing so one person and 3,000 at a time. They don´t care if you are Republican or Democrat, capitalist or socialist, Christian or an enlightened liberal atheist college professor. They will kill you even if you are a movie star or a politician. If liberalism means that you cannot recognize, condemn or fight your enemy (or support your own country), then liberalism is a mental disease – it is suicidal not only for the individual, but it will kill us all if we allow it to undermine our will to fight and win. There is something very wrong with a man who would denounce the Patriot Act and condemn President Bush after watching terrorists behead his son. Michael Berg is either insane or he is a traitor!

Geraldo just played a taped interview with the father of Nick Berg who has now become a big-mouthed anti-war, anti-Bush activist. Berg's father intoned that "war is not the answer," because all those people over there really want is to be given respect and dignity, and........"as long as we're there, they're going to fight us, because they just want their own countries and respect and dignity." I somehow don't think that Berg's father suddenly became a radicalized liberal because his son was unfortunate enough to have been seized by the renegade monsters and beheaded. The guy engages in "liberal speak" and has surely always been a liberal. That IS the liberal argument - just give all them-there middle eastern folks decent respect, get outta their countries............and the problem will be solved. Watching the Michael Berg interview on Geraldo at large, reminded me of a brilliant article by Judson Cox, which was published last May in americandaily.com Because Geraldo featured the Berg anti-Iraq war piece, it seemed only fair to hear the Bush side, which is the reason for which I've just posted this rebuttal.

Uh huh.....and they garner respect and dignity by murdering thousands of innocent American men, women, and children......methinks the wrong Berg died!

Geraldo is an idiot for giving the guy a soapbox, in order to ghoulishly capitalize on his own son's brutal murder for the sake of hitting at W. This is nothing more than Mr. Lipweasel's contribution to oust W, using his own show.

Is the rumor true that "Geraldo Rivera" is really "Jerry Rivers"??

Okay, so it's not a rumor. My daughter saw him for the first time and couldn't believe he was really hispanic. She thought his real name was probably Jerry Rivers.

If we were really facing the Iraqi populace and not some half hearted insurgency, I wouldnt be talking to you today from Iraq.

80% or something like that of Iraqis SUPPORT what is going on here. It is actually higher than that, something like 85% or so. That other 15%? Hard heads that either lost it all, aka one of the bad guys, or islamofascists that are out of touch with that the people, and the clerical leadership here wants.

and of course 90% of this insurgency is not IRAQI, but foreign....

Berg and Gerry Rivers are parasites, living off the fruits of our labors.

But they're believed by The Sheep, who will ultimately elect the next President.

The Sheep always vote Left. That's what Sheep do.

MIchael Berg is a world-class jerk whose son suffered a horrible death. Those two (possibly) unrelated facts don't make him a credible spokesperson for any point of view except his own. He is not an authority on foreign policy or islamofascism.

He's a jerk who lost his son horribly, My symapthy to the family. Now shut up.

And I have the same curiosity about John Kerry and David Leisure (Joe Isuzu). I've never seen them together, and damn, don't they sound alike? Whenever Kerry talks, they should flash "He's lying!" at the bottom of the screen.

I heard the guy on the Michael Medved show, and the filth that came out of his mouth could be used to test the blood pressure of decent people at HMOs. Vile stuff. Crazed stuff. Indicative of why the K-flopper has 40% support. Based on what he said, I'd say he's one of the nastiest people in our country.

He's one of those liberals who thinks of himself as a deep thinker and believes "war is not the answer" is a philosophy and not just a bumper sticker. Guys like that don't care how they get the limelight, they just want it. As soon as this election is over he will disappear just like the rest of maroons like him.

I guess that explains their attacks on western targets for 30 years now. We have deprived them of their dignity, respect, etc.

Geraldo did say he told Mr. Berg that he disagreed, that even if we were not in Iraq, these thugs would still be attacking us, as seen by 9/11.

“liberalism is a mental disease"

I had not considered the possibility that liberalism was a disease. For quite some time now my theory has been that a liberal could be defined as a person who lacks the gene required to process reality. I believe the article supports both theories.

You should go look at faithfreedom.org, run by Ali Sina who is a true enlightened RECOVERING MUSLIM! He's super. He has various anti-Islam columns and editorials; - says the thing has been a blood cult from the start and that Muhammed was a murdering, raping, pillaging THUG. Seems from what I've read, that he'd make ole Saddam look like a choir boy. Faithfreedom.org is a super site. I think that I also posted something yesterday about how this entire Islam is a scam, hoax and a FRAUD from its beginnings 1,500 years ago.

I do. I believe that in general, liberalism is a lack of emotional maturity. And when this causes destructive behavior or beliefs, I consider it a disease. IMHO;)

That's the truth, but look at what the kid grew up with. my god, with a father like that who could blame him from running away to Iraq.

BTW, the dad has a really bad case of "displaced anger". Any shrink could diagnose that one.

Nick Berg should never have been there to begin with. I wonder if his father feels guilty for the values that, he instilled in his son to think that Nick would be safe there. I believe he was also Jewish, now even I know that I would not go there under those circumstances.
