DEAR WORLD, PLEASE CONFRONT AMERICA [Barf, Naomi Wolf]
Daily News Egypt ^ | August 1, 2008 | By Naomi Wolf

Posted on 08/04/2008 7:25:54 AM PDT by syriacus

Is it possible to fall out of love with your own country? For two years, I, like many Americans, have been focused intently on documenting, exposing, and alerting the nation to the Bush administration’s criminality and its assault on the Constitution and the rule of law — a story often marginalized at home. I was certain that when Americans knew what was being done in their name, they would react with horror and outrage.

Coincidentally, today's online Daily Star/News Egypt has an article about the heavy-handedness of the Egyptian government.
CAIRO: Saad Eddin Ibrahim, the Egyptian-American human right advocate, was sentenced in absentia on Saturday to two years in prison for damaging Egypt’s reputation.

YOU never loved this country Naomi. You love yourself. But that's ok, because in America you have the freedom to make those choices, just as I have the freedom to see you as an old, bitter, frigid, narrow-minded rat.

Naomi Wolf prattles about international law and human rights. Which she forgets is not well-protected outside the United States. The Bill Of Rights does not apply in foreign jurisdictions. Its just too much to expect liberals to defend their country abroad!

People like Naomi should remember that everyone here left those places we’re supposed to appease and make happy. There were good reasons why.

Naomi, why not move to a country whose government more closely matches your views?

How about China?

Ironically Naomi (publishing her article in Egypt where there are many men who would cut her throat if she walked their street) is of the liberal Jewish mentality that equates the Bush administration with the National Socialist nazis, and sees Obama as a savior

Right, and people like Naomi are spoiled little liberal whiners who have no clue what their forefathers when through to get to the home of the free and the brave. It would be good for these people to leave and find their utopia in Europe, Asia or South America - places they can really be free!

So Americans are colluding with a criminal regime. We have become an outlaw nation — a clear and present danger to international law and global stability — among civilized countries that have been our allies. We are — rightly — on Canada’s list of rogue nations that torture.
Europe is still high from Barack Obama’s recent visit. Many Americans, too, hope that an Obama victory in November will roll back this nightmare. But this is no time to yield to delusions. Even if Obama wins, he may well be a radically weakened president. The Bush administration has created a transnational apparatus of lawlessness that he alone, without global intervention, can neither roll back nor control.
Private security firms — for example, Blackwater — will still be operating, accountable neither to him nor to Congress, and not bound, they have argued, by international treaties. Weapons manufacturers and the telecommunications industry, with billions at stake in maintaining a hyped “war on terror” and their new global surveillance market, will deploy a lavishly financed army of lobbyists to defend their interests.

What a hysterical article! She’s downright loopy. Blackwater’s under her bed, taping her calls and drugging her tap water. What a freaking loon.

She also cites that "torture tape" of a whinging al Qaeda terrorist, who they always label a “Canadian minor.” First off, he’s spent almost his whole life in the terrorist hotbeds in the middle east, not Canada, and was captured on the battlefield after he threw the grenade that killed a US soldier. And his “torture video” was laughable. He was basically sobbing and saying that some unnamed evil guys took his eyes and his feet, while the (Canadian, btw) interrogators patiently explain to him that his eyes are still in his head and are working fine and his feet are right at the ends of his legs, where they always were. Then when they offer him some water, he waves his arms around screaming “I can’t move my arms!”

The whole video is like a SNL skit, that could only make screaming moonbat looneys like Naomi uncomfortable. Maybe if the Canadian interrogators wore earthtone outfits, deep-thinking Naomi would feel better.

It is MIND-boggling how many Jews are cynical about America being the greatest country and are in Obama's camp. However, several of my Jewish friends who usually vote demonrat are all for McCain at this point.

An outlaw America is a global problem that threatens the rest of the international community. If this regime gets away with flouting international law, what is to prevent the next administration — or this administration, continuing under its secret succession plan in the event of an emergency — from going further and targeting its political opponents at home and abroad?

Boy, she is all-the-way-gone, worrying about the Bush Administration refusing to turn over the government to the next Administration and going on a global assassination purge of all enemies.

I'm sure she's seeing multiple therapists, but I wonder about the efficacy of the particular anti-depressant, anti-schizophrenia, anti-whatever pharamaceutical cocktail they have her on.

Double the dose on everything and make her stop washing it down with vodka.

LOL. Obama is a puppet controlled by senior democrats. Does anyone honestly think he got where he is without his liberal handlers? He has zero power on his own.

Leftists are too funny! Just because they think international law should exist they carry on with the delusion that it does.

I should develop this power. Just make something up in my head and proceed through my every day life as though it has magically become reality.

Apparently Naomi’s Ivy League education never included world history

Especially Germany in the 1930’s- which she only felt compelled to read after she wrote her Bush-is-a-Nazi bashing book.

In her selective review of world despotism, she doesn’t comment on Stalin or Mao. Yet these are the societies she calls on when she asks ‘the world” to attack America?
Believe me bubbala, they are trying.

At least Shep Smith on Fox News tore her a new one

From wikipedia: "In 2006, the Sunday Herald carried an interview in which Wolf claimed to have taken on the spirit of a 13-year-old boy and saw Jesus Christ.[2] The paper called her comments "more than a little disturbing," and Salon magazine called the confession "truly outlandish."[3]"

So not only is she a pinko fool, she's outright nuts.

It is very very difficult to understand their thinking--no question. I believe part of it stems from their equating the origins of Hitler and conservatism. They do not understand that Hitler was a socialist and nazism had nothing conservative about that.

Believe me, as a conservative Jew in the NYC area, I know a bit about the subject, and it's not pretty.

But, on a happer note, the younger Jews are much more conservative.

Naomi should check out the Censorship rules for War Correspondents, which were imposed under Truman during the Korean War.

Among the rules

Correspondents were place under the complete jurisdiction of the army
Criticism of the Allied conduct of the war was forbidden.
Dispatches were screened for military info which might harm morale
Officers could only be quoted as authorized
Casualties could not be released, before official publication
Correspondents were subject to court martial if they reported troop movements without authorization

I know of no place on earth more lovely nor an occasion so agreeable than Upper Bavaria in the Dämmerung when my neighbors gather on the lawn to drink the local beer, enjoy the view of the mountains at sunset, and breathe in the zephyrs of summer.

So it was here yesterday evening on my neighbor's lawn when the conversation turned to politics. Of course, all the Bavarians were in favor of Barak Obama and I could get no traction in pointing out to them that the man was a nouveau and utterly unqualified to be the leader of the free world whose decisions would eventually affect them. In desperation, I extracted a €20 note from my wallet, held it in the air and declared that I would give it to anyone at the table who could name just one thing that Barak Obama had accomplished which makes him worthy of the presidency. No one could respond. There was only nervous laughter and a few self-conscious jokes. I was able to return the money to my wallet without any real claim being made upon it.

Everyone at the table, by the way, was either convinced or somewhat persuaded that the CIA had engineered the attacks of 9/11. Six years ago only the occasional drooling nut would have voiced such a view which is so preposterous on its face is any reasonable person must discount it. I asked them how many people would have to be in on the secret to keep the conspiracy going. Again there was no serious answer.

This piece by Naomi Wolf, like the CIA conspiracy theory, Michael Moore's movies and books, and the unremitting propaganda on behalf of Barak Obama, leave my poor neighbors without any chance to see the other side of the story. because they just don't get the other side of the story.

These are not crazy left-wing nuts, these are staunch Catholics, family people, their parents were all farmers, they are very conservative in their daily affairs, they're all raising three and four kids. They have visited America and they love America. One teenage daughter whose mother believes in the conspiracy theory is about to spend three weeks as a house guest of ours with her girlfriend in our home in America. Yet, they take their politics straight from the mouth of Michael Moore.

Naomi Wolf, like Michael Moore, does America untold damage and damages ultimately these Europeans who have all the right instincts and all the wrong sources of information.
