A Ray of Sunshine, A New Voice from the Middle East & the 2004: Year of Leftist Hate Speech

Recently christened Blog of the Year: POWERLINE has posted the results of a poll done by Iraqi newspaper Alsabaah.  A little ray of sunshine you can read about here.
Iraqi poet and anti-Ba'athis dissident Naseer Flayih Hasan expresses his dismay over the attitudes of the Western Left in a well written piece for FrontPageMag.  Read it here.
A fellow named John Hawkins at RightWingNews put together a list of the 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes of 2004.  (Click on the name for the complete list.)
Here are some that struck me as the most outrageous with my own opinions attached.


"So now the question is, basically, right now, how will (the Osama Bin Laden tape) affect the election? And I have a feeling that it could tilt the election a bit. In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, that he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." -- Walter Cronkite on Larry King.  (Gee Walter, wouldn't Bush get more mileage out of killing Bin Ladin than just having him make another tape.   I mean if Karl Rove was that all-powerful, wouldn't he also be smart enough to think of that?  Time to check into the home Walter and have the nurse change your Depends.)


"We have a voice now, and we're not using it, and women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. We could lo--if you think that rape should be legal, then don't vote. But if you think that you have a right to your body, and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote, and those are the..." -- Cameron Diaz (Now I know why I look to Hollywood movie stars for my political guidance, they have such a depth of understanding.  Since Bush got reelected, does this mean that rape is legal now, or is he going to wait for the next session of congress before he repeals the rape laws?  You're a pretty girl Cameron, but beauty is fleeting and dumb is forever.)


"It's a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I'd rather not know." -- Singer Linda Ronstadt (Wait a minute...doesn't that make you a bigot?)


"The word 'hero' has been bandied about a lot to refer to anyone killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. But anyone who voluntarily goes to Afghanistan or Iraq [as a soldier] is fighting for an evil cause under an evil commander in chief." -- Ted Rall (Then get off your ass and do something you whining coward. Go join such heroic bastions of democracy like Al-Qaida or the Ba'ath Party, then you, Cameron, and Linda can strike a blow for real freedom.  If you're too chickenshit to fight what you think is evil, then shut the hell up.  If you were anywhere else but the USA you'd be arrested & convicted of treason. Consider yourself lucky.)


"Republicans don't believe in the imagination, partly because so few of them have one, but mostly because it gets in the way of their chosen work, which is to destroy the human race and the planet. Human beings, who have imaginations, can see a recipe for disaster in the making; Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don't give a hoot about human beings, either can't or won't. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm." -- The Village Voice's Michael Feingold. (You have a right to your opinion Mr. Feingold, even it supports mass murder, but what does this have to do with the production of 'Cats' you were supposed to be reviewing.)


"The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win." -- Michael Moore (So does this mean you'll be joining Ted Rall, Cameron Diaz, Michael Feingold, & Linda Rondstadt on the streets of Iraq with convicted rapist and serial decapitator Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.  Probably not, terrorism requires physical effort, you can't get decent pizza in Iraq, & Al Qaida doesn't have a suicide bomb vest with a 54 inch waist.)

They go one about progressiveness, inclusion, and peace, yet their rhetoric is laden with bigotry, ignorance, intolerance and a desire for violence against those whose only crime is valuing real freedom in the face of a growing fascist threat.  The scream oppression when they have no idea what real oppression is.  They're the rich and bloated, either literally or figuratively, carcasses of whiny, narcissistic, hate America, 60's leftback, pseudo-ideology.  The kind of people who think every 3rd world dictatorship is a little piece of heaven, and the country that made them wealthy and gives them the freedom to voice their hateful treason is the sum of all evil the world.

I think these people need to know how good they've got it.

So, let's take up a petition requesting their immediate deportation to the peace and freedom loving worker's paradise of North Korea where they can work as forced labour in Kim Jong Il's uranium mines.

I'll think they'll change their tune pretty quick.

I'm tired...talk among yourselves...
