Pathetic liberal sissies
Townhall.com ^ | 10 September 2006 | Kevin McCullouch

Unable to compete in the world of free debate with transparent facts, liberals behaved like children this week - proving that in the end national security and even national identity are always subservient to their own ego, reputation, and appearance.

It was pathetic, cowardly, and sickening.

It is also far too typical.

Liberals, who in large part are people devoid of true substance and belief, who also have great contempt for God, morality and truth, are often unable to deal with facts that reflect poorly upon them. And using pathetic, self-serving, cry-baby tactics is how they are commemorating this week - the fifth memorial of 9/11.

By now, you've no doubt read all about the ABC Mini-Series "The Path to 9/11" and some of what it will contain on Sunday and Monday evening. This no holds barred look at mistakes that were made in both the Clinton and Bush administrations will criticize decisions made and the decision makers in the run up to September 11. Beginning just before the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, based upon the 9/11 Commission’s Report, it will trace events that led up to the horrific event we commemorate this week.

Every insider that I spoke to who has seen it has referenced it, "amazing, historical, and important." Others have called it an "even-handed critique." It sounds to me to be very faithful to the original Report.

But then came word that Bill Clinton, and four of his top staffers, objected to the way they were portrayed. But they didn't just object. They belly-ached, they threatened, and in the end they were able to force ABC television to cave on some material that took a critical look at their role in the years between 1993-2000.

Something that particularly irked them was the implication that the Clinton administration allowed Osama bin-Laden to escape. But this was no implication -

it is fact. On at least two occasions OBL was within our grasp but it was our lack of initiative that let him slip through our fingers. While Clinton was being serviced by an intern, and Hillary was busy letting him, he bombed an aspirin factory in response to terrorist actions taken against us.

The Clinton staffers who squealed like pigs over the ABC series do so for the same reason they did most things when they were in power. The central focus of the Clinton years was not, "what is best for the nation." It was always, "what is best for the Clintons and the people they liked." As long as the dot.com boom held up we as a nation were told that the State of the Union was strong - even as our enemies plotted, planned, and even attacked us - and no response came.

Now that the ugly truth is about to be seen by millions of Americans, and because it will embarrass those in powerful positions, Clinton and his staff demand the facts be changed to assuage the people's opinion of them.

And one of those making the demands... none other than Mr. "stuff the papers down my pants" Sandy Berger.

But in reigniting this debate over the image of liberals in America, they have exposed themselves as something worse. Not only are they unable to deal with criticism - something that all leaders must do in order to be effective leaders - but they are a true danger to America.

The great sin of 9/11 was that we as a nation did not dare to imagine the destruction that our enemies could cook up for us.

In Clinton's time, his administration refused to!

And this holds true for us today. Where are the great voices from the Democratic Party ready to lead the charge to make America safe from the dangers of open borders? Where are the vibrant leaders in liberal America who are ready to deal justice to those who seek to kill Americans? Where are those on the ideological left who have any clue as to how to aggressively stop terror threats from re-emerging?

The few that used to exist have been run out of the party.

Because liberals are under the misguided notions that 1.) there is no such thing as moral absolutes, good and evil, right vs. wrong and 2.) if we just take the time to talk to them we can get them to like us, they are not even aware that the "infidels" the enemy seeks to kill first - would be their immoral, self-serving, hedonistic, wicked selves. And in that ignorance they are also blinded to the direct overtures that the enemy continues to make - recently even Mr. Ahmadinejhad saying directly, "bow down to Islam, or you will be forced to."

Liberals are pathetic because they serve selfish immoral purposes. That is also what makes them weak. In their twisted thinking they believe with all their hearts that such weakness is actually strength. And that perversion of reality is sealing their doom.

Their doom does not have to be America's end.

And whether they realize it or not, by preventing them from regaining power, we are saving them from themselves!

Avoiding facts is a hallmark of liberalism. If facts are given they are skewed and connected to vitriol. Moral arguments are actually ad hominem attacks and morals, in general, are depreciated.

This is a well written and cogent polemic and we should all given Kevin our thanks. He is smarter than Rich and a better writer than Dowd.

This is actually great news in the long run....the Dems unwillingness & inability to constructively participate in the greatest debate of the new century effectively ends their political leadership...probably permanently...probably even as a functional party. Watching the Dems atrophy under Clinton leadership through the '90's, I nevere figured he'd completely kill it off...but he & she finally have. The treasonous and cowardly among us are labeled and identified.

Wish that were true but I'm afraid it's not. While I don't necessarily buy into the conventional wisdom of the "experts" that seem to be in the spotlight 24 x7 that the Republicans are doomed and will be swept out of power in both the House and Senate, that there is a possibility of it happening would indicate they're not dead yet.

...that line between "ignorance" and stupidity has been crossed a long time ago. When considering lies being told, and the actions taken over the last three years, the stupidity factor has been past. We now are faced with "subversion", and the ultimate calamity it's actions and the refusal of government politico's to take serious responsibility to correct, can bring.

The Dems believe they can take the House and Senate. I do not believe they can or will...the Dems are famous for believing their own (in this case early) polling data. They believe if they can demonize GWB sufficiently, they will win. They won't.

I'd also ask: so where are the conservatives?

The Democratic party is a political party. It's objective is to elect people to political office. In that sense, it's philosophically neutral. It's the leadership and the folks who run for office who determine the philosophical direction. Good, bad, or indifferent.

Conservatives abandoned the Democratic party in droves during the 1980's and 1990's. Something that delighted the radical leftist moonbats to no end. Because they filled the vacuum that was left in the wake.

It might be counterintuitive. It might be upsetting. But at this point in time, the opportunity for conservatives to really make a difference is within the Democratic party.

As I said to an earlier post, I don't think the country is suicidal enough, economically or security wise to hand the reigns of power to socialist appeasers either. But, even with no real plan other than to blame the US and bash Bush for everything, including the wheather, it's pretty damn depressing that they are running neck and neck or leading in many polls. Yes, yes I know that polls are not the deciding factor in an election but let's face it if the socialists were 15 points back where they should be the pollsters would have a real hard time spinning their magic.

That they are within striking distance of taking over a local dog warden post is reason to fear for our future.

The Democrat party is dead.

It's only moving by simple inertia.

John Kerry is the poster child for liberal sissies. His Viet Nam service was not one of personal sacrifice and leadership but a carefully organized plan to get a little personal glory and get out and then use this moment of glory to vilify those with whom he served in a massive lie before Congress. His approach to terrorism was not to use US strength to defeat a foe, but to relegate our national defense to a "police matter" and depending on the UN and European allies to keep us safe. Kerry is quick to criticize and say he could do things better but has no plan or even a solid position on which to stand.

The liberal sissies cause us to in the name of political correctness to strip search little old ladies boarding planes, but not target those who are most likely to be terrorists. Liberal sissies invited an intolerant Muslim cleric who has persecuted Christians in Iran to speak at the National Cathedral on religious tolerance.

God save us if these liberal sissies get in charge.

Let me remind you of a few polls...back in the day. Governor Barnes was up by 15 points according to the polls in 2004 just before the election (Georgia). Sonny Perdue beat him by about 10 points. Dems believe these polls to their detriment. The polls ask basically if you are happy with the Pres and congress. I am not pleased with either at times, but you can bet your life I won't be pulling the Dem lever- nor will I stay home.

No offense, but I think you are completely wrong. No conservative can vote for any Dem candidate (except Lieberman and only because he is better than Lamont and the Repub can't win there.

The liberal mindset is indeed "pathetic, cowardly, and sickening".

What is even more "pathetic, cowardly, and sickening" is the fact that they often get away with their endless litany of America-hating lies, as well as succeed in their efforts to cover the treasonous tracks that they have made.

Of course, the original report was already slanted to avoid placing blame on the clinton administration.

A while back Sean Hannity had brought to light an intelligence org.that went by the name "Able Danger" who had given the Clinton Admin. some very detailed info about most of the terrorist's who ultimately were involved in the 9\11 attacks.Apparently the details were ignored by Clinton and his goons and was not even brought up in what I refer to as the " dog and pony show" 9\11 Commission.I wonder if the mini-series will even mention this group ???

There is much truth written here. Thank God Almighty our Nation can suffer Humiliation and still survive, (though the SissyRAT's do what they can to urge it on.)

Are we a great World power or not? The world at large has to wonder, no thanks to the Carter & Clinton administrations. Relativism and PC is so firmly ingrained in the Modern Liberal mind-set, and the Lib's have done so much for so long to shape American Foreign Policy to conform to the Will of World Organizations,.....

Was it really impossible to believe, that Al-Qaeda thought "it" could Drive us out of the Middle east and be successful ?

Are WE becoming "sissyfied" by the SissyRAT's ? ...Yes, I think so.

Absolutely! They always get away with it through their powerful allies; the MSM.

From what I've heard, the Bush Administration is shown in a real favorable light, however, we still haven't heard from the Oval Office about how this show needs to be pulled off the air. Which begs the question, "Who really values our rights more?"

What's so wonderful is those that still have balls made The Path to 911. I believe after yrs and yrs of prayers by believers...they're being answered. No matter how much man tries to use his power to continue to deceive America and the world...we're in a completely different day. The prayers are being answered and the natural world is seeing it...and this is just the beginning of it. What worked in the past to put out lies and CYA WILL NOT BE WORKING...;o)

This is what is so dumbfounding to me. The fact that Sandy Berger STOLE from the National Archives and NOTHING happened to him is mindboggling!!!!! I am totally blown away by those facts. The other night Gary Hart, another gem, was on O'Reilly, he went on and on on how they had given the Bush admin. a report about terrorism and they ignored it. Hello??? They had put this report together in 1998, why didn't the Clinton administration do anything with the report for the 2yrs. they had it? I must be dense because I don't understand how you can equate 2yrs to 8 months. I don't understand how the dems can be so mortified by Bush not doing enough when the rash of terrorist attacks started in 1993 and over and over again through out Clintons term and nothing was done. Their logic is forget about everything that happened before 2000, since it happened on Bush's watch it is ultimately his fault. The fact that they refuse to take ANY RESPONSIBILITY is pathetic.

Right you are. Disregarding facts and when caught and asked a question like yours, the TraitoRats/MSM answer will always be the repetitive:

...they had given the Bush admin. a report about terrorism and they ignored it.

My favorite example to describe their answers is that they insist on: "The sun rises from the west!" But..but, everybody knows... scientifically...it rises from the east...watch it tomorrow, look east....

Nope, they keep repeating the lie without answering the main question. Unfortunately it influences the sheeple.

It hurts DU type folks to have to see their sacred cow, Bill Clinton, shown to have been "playing ugly" with a plump, young girl instead of dealing with bin Laden and the very serious business of this country. One has to wonder just how many times he refused important calls because he was simply too "busy" playing ugly with a gal in his office. Excusing him has been the mistake of many people, probably starting with his mother.
