After reading this diatribe, I think I understand Glenn Greenwald, Marcos Moulitsas, their extremist brothers and sisters on the Left, The New York Times, and every other liberal media outlet, talking head, mouth piece, exclusive echo chamber email distribution group a little bit better. Here’s what I’ve figured out.
1. The Left no longer believes a genuine terror threat exists against the United States.
September 11, 2006 will mark 5 years since the attack against innocent lives on U.S. soil. There hasn’t been another terror hit within our borders since that day. Time has desensitized the Left to the threat of future terror strikes against our nation. In the months that followed that tragic day, something happened to the Left. Something erased the horror from their memory. They turned away from the unity personified in the singing of ‘God Bless America’ on the steps of the Capitol and reverted back to their ‘Right Wing Conspiracy’ talking points. Oh, they pay plenty of lip service to the importance of vigilance today, but only in a manner which benefits them politically. The fact is, ever since the U.S. entered Iraq, the Left has done everything in its power to destroy our government’s ability to protect us from the next terrorist attack. While most conservatives and many moderates believe a future hit on America is not only possible, but imminent, the Left acts today as if that ugly day in September was a completely isolated moment which won’t ever be repeated, so long as the U.S. stops bullying other countries, and its citizens educate themselves to better ‘understand’ the plight of the terrorist.
2. The Left believes that Bush, Cheney and Rove are the real terror threats to the United States.
— They presuppose that effective anti-terrorism programs are illegal and must be exposed and stopped for the sake of ‘the public interest’.
— They encourage sympathetic career officials in the CIA and NSA (hired by the previous administration) to leak classified information.
— They demonize our men and women in uniform, painting them as the purveyors of terror by singling out events at Abu Ghraib, Haditha, and Guantanamo Bay.
— They downplay or completely ignore the many U.S. led successes in Iraq.
— When terrorist attacks are thwarted by U.S. authorities, they explain the success away by calling into question the timing of the announcement as just another “wag the dog” moment.
The Left has one goal – to regain political power in Washington DC. Beyond that, they don’t have much of anything. No plan for Iraq. No loyalty to Israel. No plan to deal with threats from Iran and North Korea, other than to relinquish our interests to the United Nations. But more importantly…The Left has no plan to proactively prevent terrorist attacks against America.
Luckily for us, the Left’s efforts to destroy Bush have not resulted in a post-9/11 terrorist attack on our Nation.
