“This nation of sheep is indeed begetting a government of wolves, and as a result we are all witnessing the death of liberty.”

“This nation of sheep is indeed begetting a government of wolves, and as a result we are all witnessing the death of liberty.”

And then there’s this: “Why does evil make liberals stupid?” Key quote:

This piece in The Atlantic is a good exemplar of the mushy liberal commentary that has proliferated in recent days. Authored by one Megan Garber, it is titled: “The Boston Bombers Were Muslim: So?” Before taking a close look at Ms. Garber’s article, let’s advise The Atlantic not to put away that headline. It could come in handy so often. “The Cole Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The Embassy Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The First World Trade Center Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The September 11 Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The Madrid Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The London Bombers Were Muslim: So?” “The Shoebomber Was Muslim: So?” The Underwear Bomber Was Muslim: So?” “The Fort Hood Shooter Was Muslim: So?” “The Beslan Child-Murderers Were Muslim: So?” “The Times Square Bomber Was Muslim: So?”

We could keep this up for a very long time, but let’s move on to Ms. Garber’s soulful meanderings.

    I think there is a clear need for Muslims to hire a Public Relations firm. This makes them look like they have bad intentions for the rest of us.

    The Koran is more of a religious hand book and if you read it literally (as you are commanded to do) then you can not have any good intentions for anyone but your own. There is a duality to the religion that informs governance, they are inexplicably linked, and there in lies the Wests problem with it. We purposefully separate the two for reasons that are self evident, they may never do such a thing.

    THIS IS A PROBLEM!

    Separation of church and state, taqiyya, sharia law, Bengazzi…….what difference does it make? So says Hllary Clinton, former Obama administration Secretary of State.

  • ‘Why?’ in this case is a bullshit question. Even if you know the why to the very last detail it does nothing to change the act. Deal with the act.

    ‘Unimaginable’ she describes it. To her. Anyone that has seen the evil people do has no problem imagining more of it. If not, that is the mental defect we need to address.

    Children have not the experience to be pundits. If you’re not senile by 50, I’m listening.

    If you don’t understand what the 50+ are saying… listen harder.

    Ms. Garber’s Atlantic article is typical of the 60’s psycho-babble I was surrounded by in graduate school. At the end of a one hour sociology class you actually knew less than when it began.

    Evil seems to make lots of people stupid. Of course stupidity does seem to visit some more then others. Robert has posted a left wing example. In the interest of balance, a few of the right-wing offenders are below:

    1. Ted Nugent- who calls for Boston bomber to be publicly hanged. Although the word ‘muslim’ is noticeably absent, he bizarrely links him to ‘Voodoo’ 13 times in his rant.
    http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/time-to-stretch-neck-of-jihadist-punk/

    2. Glenn Beck- I’m not sure the right still wants to claim Beck as he descends further and further into paranoia and delusions of grandeur, but , if not rational, he is always entertaining. Here he is, (before the capture of Tsarnaev) blaming a ‘Saudi national’ for the crime, and threatening to expose everything he knows by Mon. April 22 if the Obama administration does not ‘come clean’.
    http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/beck-to-obama-come-clean-on-bombing-or-else/?cat_orig=us

    3.On the same right wing blog that contains Beck blaming the Saudi’s, there is this piece pinning the blame on Iran’s secret intelligence unit. Someone is going to have to make a choice of who to blame here, since the Saudi’s and the Iranians hate each other.

    4 Michael Savage-Not to be undone with outrageous conspiracy theories, he- on his radio show, Savage Nation- insisted he had proof it was a ‘dark-skinned’ Saudi National’ responsible, was in custody, and that the two ‘white guys’ shown in photos were just ‘patsies’, set up by the FBI. Now that the two Tsarnaev brothers have been captured or killed, and linked to Islam, oh how his tune has changed… Now his website has been scrubbed of his earlier accusations, as if he never said them, but the anti-muslim, anti-immigration rhetoric remains.
    His site is here: http://www.michaelsavage.wnd.com/

    5. And speaking of mushy soulfull meanderings… One person, or entity, NO ONE should blame is…. God. And to make sure of that, we have Susan Browns piece (along with a rather fetching picture of her to show, if not her logic, or her godliness, at least her hotness), which ends with this: ‘Someday, we will look back at this brief moment we called life… and exceptionally bad days like Monday in Boston will somehow make sense…in light of eternity.’

    One person who came out looking good in all of this was John Batchelor, who reported only what he knew, and refused to speculate ahead of time. He even had the good sense to immediately backtrack on something he had just reported, when he felt his source was not reliable. A true professional.

      Which is why John Batchelor has had me as a regular guest, twice and three times a week, now for almost a decade. He, like I, do not like to speculate foolishly.

        And, that is why I look at behindtheblack.com almost daily. In fact, I found Bob’s site because he is on John’s show so often.

        I was kind of hoping you would be able to resist the urge to self congratulate, but I guess not.

    • wodun

      But our provider of free cookies did not argue with you :)

      I don’t think the people you listed qualify as evil, although there has been a concerted effort to label everyone who is not liberal as evil. I can certainly see how you would not like the people you listed but while their politics are different than yours, they are not the ones defending Islamic terrorists.

      During the past week there was a lot of things out there in the media that would turn out not to be true, from all sides. We could talk about the liberal sites that falsely accused innocent bystanders of being the bombers, brown skinned people.

      But why do some people bend over backwards to avoid admitting that Islamic terrorism is an important issue? I

      The Arab Spring, Benghazi, genocide against Jews and Christians all over the Middle East and North Africa are all real and show the dangers of militant Islamists. It is not something that sprouted up due to Bush’s foreign policy, it is a problem that predates Bush by hundreds of years.

      Our media is doing us a disservice by not telling us about what is going in the Middle East and North Africa.

    • Speculation can make fools of some. However, ignoring existing facts is even worse.
