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 Commissions 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!
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.
Internal (and eternal) Enemies Devices BUMP!
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.
couldnt have said it better myself. VERY well writen. Kudos to Kevin!
...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.
"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?"
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.
In all seriousness, you might have that discussion with Zell Miller........and get back to us about it if you do.
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.
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.
As opposed to:
Inspiring liberal sissies.
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.
Good post notwithstanding the grabber of a headline : )
...It sounds to me to be very faithful to the original Report."
Of course, the original report was already slanted to avoid placing blame on the clinton administration.
