I would like to preface the rest of this piece with this. I like President Obama. Honestly. Do I think it likely he is Carter + a lil extra melanin? Sadly, I do, but I hope I am wrong. However, his presence and ability as an orator are superb. In other words, he talks the talk, and he talks it well. Mr. President, should you ever stumble upon my dark little corner of the interwebs, please note: “If you try to please all the people all of the time, nothing gets done and everyone gets pissed”
I mean come on, how could you NOT like a president who defused a racial powder keg with beer?
Alright, so there’s that. Now to the matter at hand.
I felt a cold sliver of fear the other day. I was sitting in a doctors office with a patient, and Fox News was loudly denouncing the decision to try terrorists in New York. Although I find politics mostly repulsive and counter-productive, I tend to lean towards a liberal point of view most of the time.
Not liberal, as in, I agree with the predominant liberal point of view, more like, I think this and it seems to agree with the predominant, liberal point of view.
You can imagine then how surprising it was to be listening to laughably slanted reporters, making sense.
Enough is enough already.
I read an exchange between the Attorney General and a Republican senator, and quite frankly, the senator owned his ass. Then I read the ridiculous proclamation about Bin Laden, and how he will be caught and face the death penalty.
This idea that these individuals should be tried as accused criminals, and given the rights of such is pure nonsense. Furthermore, that they should be tried in New York, a place where they succeeded in pleasing their monstrous and bloodthirsty deity, is a long, warm piss all over the remains of the people who died there. This will be a circus of epic proportions, and it will seen all over the world, because we are the media capital of the world.
The low dull roar we will all be hearing soon isn’t the 2012 tidal wave approaching.
It’s the sound of collective laughter, and the occasional shout out to Allah coming from the middle east.
A person may rob. A person may murder. A person may rape. A person may sell drugs….etc
These things are all terrible in varying degrees, but there is a key difference between the above criminals, and the animals they propose to try here.
The things they did, helped do, and plotted to do were not motivated by gain, in a physical, or psychological sense. Neither were these individuals mentally incompetent, or ill. The people who do these things do them purely to please their invisible boogeyman, period. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. There is no exception to that rule. Nor is there a means to ‘rehabilitate’ these folks. Because their direction comes from their faith, and it’s leaders, and as we all know, it’s WRONG to judge a faith that enables cattle-like treatment of their women, and encourages swift and terrible violence for even the slightest thing seen as an affront to it…
Sure, maybe we’ll get some brownie points from the European community for this. I hear the Swedes love us now, score!…
Enough is enough with them too.
Lets say the Russians got a hold of these fellas. Anddd, lets just say they happened to help plan a truck bomb that leveled the Kremlin. Hm, well, lets see. First, they would be read their rights, um, then fingerprinted, mugshots….
Ooooh, right, right, this is Russia. Those sons of bitches would be beaten in a gulag for about a month before being brutally killed somewhere nice and quiet where no one could see. Why let their miserable deaths inspire anyone else? But wait….wouldn’t there be an outcry, you know, about how torture is bad, and civil rights…and the world community would be soooo super pissed and stuff..
Nah. It seems other developed nations outside of the European mainland have carte blanche when it comes to dealing with assholes. We seem to be the only idiots who are willing to go as far as compromising our nations security in order to ensure the human rights of those who act inhuman.
Guantanamo was a mistake.
It’s actually quite nice down there, sunny days, tropic breezes. We should be throwing these affronts to civilization in our very own American gulag, somewhere up in Alaska, where they should then be interrogated using EVERY means necessary. And then we can cut them loose for a little while so Sarah Palin can take potshots at them from a chopper while they scatter on the unfamiliar snow. Big laughs.
That cold sliver of fear was the realization that we have become a very self-conscious nation.
Stop, drop, and roll people.
So until China ultimately hands us our ass in every sense of the word,
Live it, Love it (Do something about it)
