Sorry to labor this fairly obvious point, but here's some photographic evidence that we were not all united after September 11th.



Here's a story to go with it.

Good find...just more evidence. No wonder the Left/libs are squealing like stuck pigs.

You know....I'm going to go out on a limb much farther than Rove and say that I even question the "grief" of these protestors. It looks like a political statement to me. This was the face of true mourning:

"I pinged Oxen to see if he wanted to do it, he's really good at that kind of thing."

===

Backhoe is also very good and conscientious, he has done a great job on a number of topics, collecting all the various links into one thread.

I think if either backhoe or Oxen could do it, whichever feels more like doing it and has the time.

We need to have this, because it looks like the Republicans finally are starting to call a spade a space, and a Dem a traitor, and we need to make sure to compile the evidence.

I think Rove's comment is just the first of an uncoming salvo againt the Dems, and it's high time too.

I agree. The man is a genius. I'm still cutting my baby teeth here, I haven't been a member for a year yet, but I have learned so much since I have been here. It's amazing how politically smart and astute everyone is. I didn't become a political junkie until I found this place. Now of course this place is addicting!

The left will join in and sing harmony as soon as Moscow and Biejing suffer their own 9/11. Then it will be alright for the good little fellow travelors to be "patriotic American."

This peace movement is being deeply informed by the anti-globalization movement which is talking about economic justice as a part of global peace," said Carmen Trotta, an executive committee member of the War Resisters League, a pacifist organization that was founded in 1923 by World War I conscientious objecters. "The peace movement needs to be thinking about more than the events of September 11. And, I think there's hope for that with the tie-in from the anti-globalization movement...It suggests a peace movement that could have greater depth than ever before."

Rove Should Apologoze. He Went Way Too Easy on Them.

http://www.webcommentary.com/asp/ShowArticle.asp?id=darrj&date=050626



This is what Karl Rove should have talked about. The systematic deception of the American people and undermining of the War by the Democratic Party for nothing more than a few seats in the House and Senate.



Karl Rove Should Apologize. He Went Way to Easy on Them.

After years of attacks from the Left on the War on Terror, Karl Rove has finally said it like it is. America's Liberals have never approached the War on Terror with the seriousness it deserves. Oblivious to the obvious irony of Illinois Senator Dick Durbin's coerced and disingenuous apology for comparing the actions of American troops at Guantanamo Bay to those of the Nazis coming within the same week as Rove's comments, Democrats in Congress rushed to the aid of their ideological brethren attacking Rove and demanding either his resignation or a similarly disingenuous apology to that of Durbin.

This is more than the usual game of Washington tit for tat politics. While Karl Rove was only intending to criticize Moveon.org and other radical Leftist groups, he hit far to close to the truth for the comfort of the Liberals on the Hill, who above all else do not want the American people to know what they really see as the signifigance of 9/11 in American history. This is why the Liberals rolled out their venerable and well used "outrage machine" in response to Rove's comments. If the voters knew what the real opinions of the Democrats are, the Democrats could look forward to being the minority party for the next 10 years. And for this Karl Rove should have criticized them.

Rove was far too soft on the Liberals. He attacked a few fringe groups on the Left for recommending "therapy" rather than war as a response to 9/11 when he should have condemned the entire Democratic Party leadership and Liberal establishment not for just seeing 9/11 as a crime rather than act of war, but for attempting to manipulate the tragedy for policial gain and the advance of their agenda at the expense of American lives.

Just as a quick reminder. Here are a few of the statements of prominent Liberals and Democrats that vividly demonstrate Rove's point that Democrats are now trying to pretend do not exist.

Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich, "Afghanistan may be an incubator of terrorism, but it doesn't follow that we bomb Afghanistan." ("Offer the Hand of Peace," "Cleveland Plain Dealer," 9/30/01.)

Former Democratic Presidential Candidate Al Sharpton, "America is beginning to reap what it has sewn." ("The New York Times" 12/1/02)

Democratic Congresswoman Marcy Kapur, "One could say that Osama bin Laden... [is] very similar to those kind of atypical revolutionaries that helped to cast off the British crown." (The Associated Press, 3/6/03).

Democratic Senator Patty Murray, "[Bin Laden has been] out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads... and the people are very grateful. We haven't done that." (World Net Daily, 5/17/05.)

Michael Moore, "[L]et's examine our contribution to the unsafe world we live in." (www.michaelmoore.com, 9/12/01.)

Democratic Senator Joseph Biden, the bombing campaign of Afganistan "reinforced existing stereotypes of the United States as a high tech bully." (Associated Press, 10/23/01.)

Democratic Senator and Presidential Nominee John Kerry, "War on Terror is far less of a military operation and far more of an intelligence gathering, law enforcement operation." (Associated Press, 3/19/03.)

The list can go on. But for a short cut you might want to read "Beyond September 11. An Anthology of Dissent," edited by Phil Scranton, which highlights the writings of over 30 of the most prominant Liberal thinkers who in one voice state that not only is the United States wrong in protecting itself from terrorism, but responsible for the attack to begin.

Then, after the Democratic leadership gives Michael Moore the seat of honor at the Democratic National Convention, they run around screaming, "How can you say we are soft on terror?"

Despite their denials, the Democratic leadership has gone far beyond just comments aimed at undermining the war effort and our safety, they have backed their words with actions.

Shortly after 9/11, nearly all Democrats supported military action in the War. This was not so much out of a sense of duty to their nation, but political survival. Opposing military action in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 would have been political suicide and the Democrats knew it. So they voted for the War and Patriot Act in the hopes the War on Terror would be fast and clean, leaving plenty of time for the voters to forget about it before the next election cycle as happened after the first Gulf War.

However, everything has not gone according to plan to for Left. The War has not been as easy as their weak resolve can stomach. More importantly, the War has kept the attention of the voters on national security, the traditional strength of the Republicans, and away from the Democrats’ preferred domestic policy agenda. The Democrats are faced with the prospect of remaining the minority party unless something drastic, like the War going poorly, happens. So, immediately after the initial public sentiments after 9/11 died away, the Democrats initiated a policy designed if not to actually limit our ability to fight the War, at least give the impression we cannot win.

Some of these policy decisions have been the opposition of the use of racial and religious profiling to identify security risks on airlines, demanding the closing on Gitmo and release of illegal terrorist combatants, and calling for a definite deadline for the pull out of American troops from Iraq. None of these changes would serve to help the United States' image abroad or improve our ability to fight the War, but they do serve the purpose of creating political scandal where there is none and maintaining as steady stream of negative news coverage to a liberal media that is so desperate to see Republicans out of power that they will consider retyped "official" memos where the originals have "mysteriously" disappeared as valid news sources.

This is what Karl Rove should have talked about. The systematic deception of the American people and undermining of the War by the Democratic Party for nothing more than a few seats in the House and Senate. The worse thing that can happen to the Democrats is for people like Dick Durban and Howard Dean to go out and actually articulate the belief and support of the Democrats in the ideas of groups like Moveon.org. It is alright to believe it, even act on it, but never say it. To the Liberals, gaining political power at the expense of another 9/11 and a few thousand more American civilans dead, is a price well worth paying.

Sure, objectively, in terms of what he said, Rove was too easy on the left. But that's part of his genius: he knew perfectly well they'd howl just as loudly at what he said as they would if he gave them what they deserved. But this way, they look like idiots for complaining, and he still has salvos in reserve.

Heh, heh,. . .

Actually my guess is that this is just the first.

Until now Republicans have been reluctant to call the Dems on their treasonous behavior, but they finally had enough. I hope ALL Republicans will continue to point out how treasonous and harmful to all Americans and our troops the Dems actions are.

The Dems want us to get out of Iraq now, before stability is achieved, just so they can create a self fulfilling prophesy, that the Iraq war was not only a mistake, but a disaster. The fact, that if we pull out now, we are surrendering to the terrorists doesn't matter to them, just so they get something they can use against Bush.

What a pathetic party, when all they have to offer is passionate defense of the terrorists in Guantanamo.

The Republicans MUST point this out to the American people and not let the Dems propagate a big lie.

I think Rove's statement was a signal that the line is drawn in the sand and it's open season on the Democrats.

Republicans have truth on their side, they just have to make sure people learn about it.

NEW YORK--An eclectic grasroots (sic) movement against war and racism is emerging in the heart of this traumatized city.

There's nothing "eclectic" about A.N.S.W.E.R.. They're just the latest incarnation of the CPUSA.

It is amazing to me how strong a reaction I STILL have when I see pictures like this. When the MSM stopped showing those pictures in an effort to curb the anger, I think all they did was prolong it. Rather than having a fit of white-hot-rage that might not have lasted long enough to complete the required WOT, I now have a slow-burning anger which has more than enough fuel to go the distance.

Thank God Bush won the elections.
