Cirque Du Stupid.

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)

    This argument of “too much justice because they are really bad guys not just bad guys” is absurd. The constutional rights we have in our courts are not reserved only for American citizens or people who “deserve” our justice. Do you understand the danger of ignoring fair trial in one instance? Do you understand what that could do to our civil rights? When equality under the law is disregarded, even for the most scumbag terrorists ever, things like Gitmo happen, which shows that our justice system is already vulnerable to violation and corruption. That’s why it’s important, now more than ever, that the justice system must be protected. That’s why this is America; if you don’t like it, go join your comrades.

    This of course is under the assumption that our system works as perfectly lawful as it should. Choosing New York as the venue isn’t a slap in the face; quite the contrary it’s a way to assure that mohammad will be convicted and under the highly HIGHLY unlikely circumstance that he is acquitted we have ways of holding him indefinitely anyway, which illustrates the prexisting lawlessness of “fair” trials anyway, something that does not need to be fueled by macho and barbaric “hang dem towel head bastards” mentalities.

    My argument is that the line needs to be drawn somewhere.

    There is idealism, and then there is common sense.

    A trial, a public execution, any opportunity that affords them the chance to be heroes to their people will compound the threat they represent one hundred fold. Make no mistake, they WILL be heroes, and they WILL be remembered, for many generations to come.

    This is not about people, this is about an entire culture brainwashed and bred to create monsters who welcome their demise so long as it takes many with them, or makes them a martyr.

    If there is truly a ‘war on terror’, then they should be tried by a military tribunal, beyond reach of the media, and dealt with as quickly and quietly as possible. We are becoming victims of our own principles, which when held rigidly, will break our country. Flexibility has always been the norm as far as how law is interpreted, and it is sorely needed now.

    Gitmo was foolish, simply because it was run foolishly. The prisoners sent there should have been processed, tried, and sentenced, or exonerated, within weeks of capture. However, when allowed to languish in cells for months, they began to be painted as victims by liberal opposition looking to use it as part of a larger political agenda. Just as threats of terror and security concerns were used to create fear by the GOP.

    One side using fear of personal rights, and the other using fear of personal safety. In the meantime, those who are looking to murder Americans en masse, are pulling on these political strings by strategically releasing statements, tailored to provoke a reaction that will only further their murderous agenda. This manipulation of the system you argue for is an affront to our country, and a clear message to the world that we are too naive to make distinctions, when distinctions NEED to be made.

    At no point would I ever advocate hanging any towel wearing individual, particularly since most who wear cloth head adornments are sikh. However, those who are willing to commit atrocities, and who poison the minds of future generations to do the same, absolutely.
