Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Time to take out the trash?

And so it begins:

Readers of this blog will remember the name Joshua Sparling. In December 2005, the Iraq war veteran received a disgusting, anti-war death wish card while being treated at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. for injuries from a bomb explosion in Ramadi. Last month, his right leg was amputated.

And this weekend, while participating in a counter-protest against the moonbat convergence, he was spit at by anti-war demonstrators.

Deceitful, dishonorable Leftists have consistently claimed, here and elsewhere, that such revolting abuse of those valiant souls who guard our freedom didn’t happen during their shameful Vietnam heyday, and couldn’t possibly be happening now — after all, they “support the troops, just not the war.”

They, as usual, are lying through their teeth.

There will be violent conflict in this country before it’s all done. And whereas I have heretofore said so with great regret and even dread, after reading this, I must say I now regard the prospect with at least some relish; certainly, it can’t be shrunk from or denied. Sparling himself:

“These are not Americans as far as I’m concerned,” Mr. Sparling said.

No sir, they most certainly are not, and the only truly proper response to their claiming to be so is outraged offense.

Now watch as the lunatics and their supposedly more reasonable supporters among the “reality”-based try to claim it never happened – or if it did, it didn’t mean what it obviously does. And watch as the MSM tries to cover for their partners in anti-patriotic crime, by throwing a blanket over this potential brush-fire of a story completely. If real Americans begin to get wind of this sort of thing happening again, no Lefty fuckwit in the country will be completely safe from violent retribution. As ambivalent as they may be about Bush’s handling of the war, I don’t think Americans suffer from any such irresolution over whether they want to see a repeat of the degradation of the 60’s era, when the Left snatched a wartime defeat from the jaws of victory, and dragged American honor, strength, and prestige through the mud. They got away with it once; they won’t again.

And honestly? I can’t say I have much of a problem with that. It’s a sad, tragic pass we’ve been brought to by these peurile simpletons, but here we are just the same. Those of us who are saddened by the displacement of the social contract by the unenlightened and boundless self-regard of the Petulant Left have some decidedly unpleasant realities to face up to here.

Mark my words: it’s going to get worse.

Update! The Sanity Inspector reminds us of one of the less remarked-upon lessons of 9/11:

One of the lessons of 9/11 was what we learned about the Left. 9/11 proved, perhaps once and for all, that there is no attack that America can suffer that will induce the Left to take up her cause, against whatever enemy might be out there. As Robert Spencer said, the Left persists in seeing Islamic terrorism through the lens of political correctness. The terrorists, by benefit of being brown, have their murderous deeds of-coursed aside as a consequence of Western sin. But the larger reason why the Left balks at defending America is that America simply isn’t good enough–yet, maybe–to be worthy of their support and sacrifice.

As our old pal Wretchard once said, The greatest apostasy in Marxist literature has always been to find value in the present. This is why Hillary Clinton’s reported revision of the Pledge of Allegiance was so chilling. “I pledge allegiance to the America that can be.” At what point do fair weather foes of their American here-and-now home turn into foul weather friends? If the answer is “never”, then they have no right to blather on about their “dissent” being the highest form of patriotism. In that case, they aren’t patriots, and maybe not even citizens. They’re termites.

Nailed it. I’ve previously called ’em parasites and remoras here, but “termites” has an apposite applicability all its own. And if you don’t think so, the Inspector has several other worthy suggestions.

Updated update! Tantor: “Idiocy flourishes when intelligent people say nothing.”
