Compare, contrast

I hope he’s mistaken, but I fear he isn’t.

At SteynOnline we no longer observe the 9/11 anniversary, for reasons I outlined last year:

The war is lost, at home and abroad. On the domestic front, we doubled the rate of Muslim immigration to the west and began assimilating ourselves with Islam’s strictures on freedom of expression and the like. The decade-and-a-half since the Danish Mohammed cartoons has been one long remorseless surrender on core western liberties. When a school teacher gets beheaded in the street, there is no outrage at the act, just a mild regret that he should have been foolish enough to provoke his own fate. Even the milder jests from the immediate post-9/11 era – the cartoon of the woman trying on new burqas in the changing room and wondering, ‘Does my bomb look big in this?’ – would not be published today:

In the broader society, our rulers quickly determined that it was easier to punish us than our enemies. The post-9/11 security state surely helped soften up western populations for the ChiCom-19 lockdowns, in which entire nations have been reduced to TSA-administered airports.

As for the war overseas, it ended with a military that can do everything except win handing the keys to Afghanistan back to the guys who pulled off 9/11 – and apologizing for the two-decade inconvenience by gifting the mullahs with some of the most expensive infrastructure on the planet plus an air force, approximately five assault rifles for every Taliban fighter, and express check-in for the forty-seven per cent of the Afghan population that apparently served as US translators.

I thought I could not despise the men who brought us to this pretty pass any more than I do. But here ya go:

CBS News has confirmed military prosecutors and defense attorneys are negotiating potential plea deals that could take the death penalty off the table for the five defendants accused in the 9/11 attacks.

That would be the hairy-backed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four marginally less hirsute co-conspirators. So, after two decades of leisurely legal jousting back and forth through, this is how it ends. Don’t worry, the plea deals are premised on the quintet being given “substantial sentences” – which one assumes means something less than life without the possibility of parole, else why not say so? In addition, the men will receive “treatment for alleged torture they experienced while in CIA custody“.

Oh, really? How about financial compensation?

Gotta hand it to KSM: He fought the law, and he won. He was captured in Rawalpindi on March 1st 2003, which is nineteen-and-a-half years ago – or twice as long as the First and Second World Wars combined.

If you were about to roll your eyes and sneer “Is there nothing this sclerotic pseudo-republic can do?”, hey, not so fast. Per MSNBC’s finest:

September 11 was a terrorist attack.

January 6 was a terrorist attack…

Both were attacks on America.

And we must seek justice for the latter as we did for the former.

Er, are you sure you got that the right way round? In the time it takes KSM’s lawyers to file a motion of reconsideration of their motion to continue the scheduling conference to schedule the reconsideration of their previous motion to continue, the January 6th “terrorists” have been banged up in solitary, railroaded into copping a plea, and led off to the Big House. It would no longer surprise me if the men who plotted the murder of the 2,977 good souls lost that day were out and strolling the boulevards of Jalalabad long before the 1/6 “insurrectionists” are freed.

Wouldn’t surprise me either, not in the least. But then, why would it? The Left despises us far more than they ever will their unlikely-seeming ally and confrere KSM, whose abiding hatred for America and individual liberty they share, if from a secular, libertine perspective instead of the barbarian-savage pseudo-religion one. And make no mistake, it’s the Left who are in charge here. “Desperate,” “panicked”? Sure, pull the other one, whydon’tcha. It has a bell on it.

If you want something done right, you’re going to have to start doing things yourself.

Stop waiting for George to do it.
Stop hoping Trump can do it.
Just do it.

Do. Or do not. There is no ‘try’.

henryKaren still typing away.
The man* that howled that the virus might kill him, so shut up. Wear your mask he said. Shut it all down he said. Get the “vax” he said.
Real warrior there. If warrior is defined as a pussy.

No, a pussy is someone who lies like you do (I detect three up above) and hurls insults like you do, brave Sir Barry. barf.

All “three” are true, 100%.

Did you wear and endorse wearing a mask? Yes
Did you get the clotshot? Yes
Did you cower in your residence and comply with the Spanish government mandates? Yes

Were you in favor of all three? Yes

The only liar is you, and anyone that cares to look up the DP archives, search henry, I’d suggest the Feb – April 2020 timeframe, will see the truth. Reveals all.

In addition to being a piece of shit, you are a liar, 100%.

So, all bloggers including our host, are “keyboard warriors”, which includes commenters on those blogs, and none of which you know personally. And here you are typing away on those blogs calling everyone else a keyboard warrior.

henryKaren is just a petty piece of shit. Frightened a virus might kill him.

What the fuck are you talking about asshole. Who said anything about all bloggers, let alone the host of this site. I addressed one individual and then you when you stuck your nose in. You really are too stupid and cretinous for words

Oh look, the fictional keyboard warrior is on the attack, frantically typing on his keyboard.

Go ahead, prove the three truths I told about you are lies. I know you can’t, and you know I know you can’t.

Which is why you are running away.

Run, henryKaren, run. You are what you’ve always been:

A big mouth pussy that tells lies and hides when called out. You’re hiding now, afraid to address the truth – you bought into every bit of the deep state virus scam: mask, vax, and lockdown.

You bought, pushed it, and never admitted to it. You’re scum of the worst kind.

Watch henryKaren go cluck, cluck, cluck…

If there is the slightest equivalence betweeen 9/11 and 1/6, my eyes are unable to see it. For anyone to propose such a moral comparison would require a total disbelief in the Creator. I am beginning to believe that I am no longer still living the United States of America.
“You must forgive thine enemies even as they march you to the ovens.”
Not while I have a cartridge in the chamber.

All that leaves is states.

Now you know why what is, is.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
