CNN: Rockwell's granddaughter paints terrorists; says global warming is bigger danger
CNN ^ | 3/5/12 | Christopher Maloney

Posted on 03/05/2012 3:47:28 PM PST by Eddie Kritzer

“When you look that closely at someone, you almost always develop sympathy for them,” Rockwell says. “It's like sitting next to someone for a long bus ride. … I want to think about who these people are and why they made the choices they did. I want to share the results of my thoughts, which are my paintings, with other people.”

She was particularly inspired to paint bin Laden.

“We take for granted who he was and what he did and why, and stop thinking of him as a human being with profoundly human motivations. The war on terror is quite bizarre, when you think about it, because it's a war on an emotion - fear. At least, that is what we are told. Instead of just being at war, we are trying to stamp out fear itself.”

I’ll bet she’s struggling to escape all those royalties her granddad earned for her, too.

Everyday I gain a deeper understanding of the commandment:

Ummm, just sitting next to a person - and 'imagining' why they made the choices they made is called 'projection'. On a bus? Gimme a break. One more reason to NEVER give power to 'trust fund' babies... Did I mention that Bill Ayers was a trust fund baby?

Not making at least a token response to a thread you've posted to Breaking is a real good way to be mistaken for a troll.

Wow. Just, wow.

This woman IS mentally ill.

When you murder 3000 defenseless people in cold blood, you relinquish any expectation of being treated by anything other than an animal.

Maybe she should look more closely at the victims and their families then. Sit next to them for a while. Sit next to some American soldiers for a while.

This reminds me of the Stockholm Syndrome, but more specifically it is part of the modern-day liberal sickness which is greatly weakening the West. One of the most glaring symptoms of this sickness is to sympathize with terrorists while at the same time despising your fellow countrymen and women who happen to hold traditional/conservative views.

My guess is that people like her feel compelled to sympathize with terrorists because conservatives are opposed to the terrorists and it’s their way of doing whatever they can to not be on the same side as us. Also they know it ticks us off big time, so that’s an added bonus. But more than that i think it’s because to the left the only real war is the war against the right and thus the only real enemies are people like Rush and Cheney and Newt and us Freepers.

The bottom line is that most of these sympathizers spend more time trying to understand what makes a terrorist tick than they do us. They need to ask themselves why that is. Why do they automatically hate a conservative but not a fanatical terrorist who wants either to convert them or kill them if they won’t convert?
