We’ve all said it, and some of them have denied it, but it’s the truth. Call them what you will — left, liberal, Democrat, antiwar, progressivist, cowards, fools, appeasers — but it all adds up to the same thing: they do not believe there should even be a war on Islamist terrorists, much less have any real concern for winning it, and they wish that 9/11 would just go away so we could all get back to our 9/10 state of soporific complacency…while the threat represented by Islamist terrorists and the states that sponsor and support them festers, suppurates, and metastasizes.
They are in truth — as I’ve said so many times — ostriches, so frightened by the realities of life on this planet as to be completely dysfunctioned by that fear, and their only response to it is to bury their heads deeper in the sand. They do not want to fight Islamism and jihadism; they think the only enemies we have are those we’ve created ourselves, the only attacks we’ll ever suffer are those we deserve, and there are no enemies out there who can’t be made friends through yet another round of UN-managed negotiations or more foreign-aid bribery. They do not understand absolutism or fanaticism, and the only religious fundamentalists they’re willing to firmly confront are those they know will never do them any real harm anyway.
If you want our national defense to be supervised by such people, vote Democrat. I know lots of people — Bill Quick and Al Maviva, two people whose opinions I deeply respect and almost always agree with, come immediately to mind, but there are others — who say they’re done with the Republicans. I sympathize greatly; I’m pretty pissed at them myself. Al and I have tossed some e-mails back and forth about all this, and I simply can’t say he’s wrong; I share his frustration, and I think it’s more than clear that the Repubs do indeed need a damned sharp reminder of what they’re supposed to be all about.
But every time I’m just about to the point of joining Al and Bill and tossing off a long goodbye-and-good-riddance letter to the Repubs here, I run across something like this. And the marrow-freezing thought of the Dems running our foreign-policy and national-security strategies stops me dead in my tracks.
And it’s no use to say that this guy only represents a fraction of the Democrats, or that the Kossacks don’t represent the mainstream. That’s crap, and we all know it. The Daily Kos, no matter what the small, beleaguered handful of Lieberman supporters out there may wishfully think, is the face of the Dems today. And even if it wasn’t, anyone who can raise that much money for the principle-bereft, poll-driven swine that the Dems have become is guaranteed to have a voice in their agenda. Sure, “forget 9/11” isn’t official policy for the Donks…yet. But once the inmates of the Kos asylum decide it should be, then the Dems will obligingly consider it. Taxi drivers don’t get to decide who rides and who doesn’t; they take on whoever pays ’em, and they go where they’re told. And so do whores.
And this is how their core supporters, whose voices will be heard, think. They, in their foreign-policy enlightenment, are “over” 9/11. They think we all should share their myopic “wisdom.” They want to take us back to 9/10. If allowed to, they will guarantee repeat performances of the most devastating attack perpetrated on American soil since Pearl Harbor, over and over again, until we either learn they’re not only incapable of defending our country but disinterested in it, or we submit to a dhimmitude they self-servingly refuse to admit the existence of, one small, Cartoon Jihad-like step at a time. Years from now, maybe these Dhimmi-crats will be smacking their lips over the delicious shit sandwich they’re being fed, but that won’t make the one they’re pressing to our lips any more palatable.
And they’re too damned blind and/or stupid to see that we already traveled the road they want to put us on, and its last mile is a gore-smeared stretch of concrete with American corpses strewn across it — crushed from having fallen over a hundred stories to a gruesome death that could have been avoided but for our own wishful thinking, our own blissful ignorance, our own fear of confronting the harsher realities of the war we’re in — a war we’ll either win or lose, but don’t have the luxury of opting out of, and never did. Apparently, the road they want us on runs in a circle, and the law requires that we travel it blindfolded.
Compare: the Islamists will never give in, and you can bet that they aren’t eager to forget their great triumph on 9/11; they’re in this for the long haul, for a thousand years if necessary, and anyone who doesn’t believe it is cordially invited to just ask them. Alternatively, you could consult the history books for a refutation of that untenable disbelief. On the other hand, the LLL/MSM/Dem Axis is exhausted, and ready to “move on” after less than five years. If we’re so foolish ourselves as to let them run the fight, guess who’s going to win it?
There must not be another Democrat President until this sort of delusional, irresponsible “thinking” is stamped out root and branch. The Democrats and their feckless policies are an indulgence, proffering a risk we can’t afford to take. There’s simply not much else to be said.
