Treason!

Filed under: Defending America,Democratic Idiocy,Terrorism — Sisyphus @ 3:44 am

Democrats in the House want a timetable for withdrawal:

Anti-war Democrats prevailed on a near-party line vote of 36-28 in the House Appropriations Committee, brushing aside a week-old veto threat from the administration and overcoming unyielding opposition from Republicans.

“I want this war to end. I don’t want to go to any more funerals,” said New York Rep. Jose Serrano, one of several liberal Democrats who have pledged their support for the legislation despite preferring a faster end to the war.

Luckily, the real Americans hold the line in the Senate:

In the Senate, after weeks of skirmishing, Republicans easily turned back Democratic legislation requiring a troop withdrawal to begin within 120 days. The measure set no fixed deadline for completion of the redeployment, but set a goal of March 31, 2008. The vote was 50-48 against the measure, 12 short of the 60 needed for passage.

This is a question of our national survival. We cannot afford to allow weakness or cowardice to hand the terrorists a clear-cut victory. We must all pray that the Democrats do not succeed in their plan to cede Iraq to Osama Bin Laden.

  1. Democraps may want to “end the war,” but the American people will not support surrender. Everyone wants the war to end, but not in defeat.

  2. “Treason”
    “Luckily, the real Americans hold the line in the Senate”
    “We cannot afford to allow weakness or cowardice to hand the terrorists a clear-cut victory”
    “We must all pray that the Democrats do not succeed in their plan to cede Iraq to Osama Bin Laden”

    Employing ad hominem, oversimplification, ad populum, and bandwagon logical fallacies all in a couple sentences is quite impressive. [Ed Note: Why, thank you!]
    1) A real American is someone who believes in freedom, democracy, and justice for all… not just Americans [Ed Note: An American is someone from America, silly.]
    2) Reagan and Bush Sr. financed and built the Afghanistan rebellion led by Osama bin-Laden, who is part of a family that Bush Jr. continues to remain extremely buddy-buddy with despire their tyrannical hold on Saudi Arabia – which, by the way, is a Muslim theocracy… this, my friend, is cowardice
    3) God is probably laughing at the irony of the situation: Americans (Republicans) give money to Osama Bin Laden to build up an offensive against Soviet Russia knowing full well that Osama was a wanted terrorist (but at that time killing white people was okay as long as they are Russian) who hated the USA. Cold War ends and Osama shifts his attention to the USA with a ragged little force – masterminds 9/11 (or at least ingeniously claims responsibility) which in turn becomes a huge recruiting success for the Islamist Jihad.

    Meanwhile, Americans still don’t know what the [heck] is going on in Afghanistan or Iraq and are content bickering among themselves and allowing FOX, CNN, the Democrats and Republicans to spoonfeed them a bunch a [hooey], which in turn has led to a brutally bi-polar nation to which every is to blame and nothing is solved. But I guess that isn’t the point. The point is that every time you call a fellow American who does not share your views a traitor, coward, or likewise, you, in the words of conservative pundits and politicians, “embolden the enemy.”

    [Ed Note: Please curtail the foul language. This is a family-friendly website. Thank you.]

  3. Thank you for sharing your “truther” conspiracy theories. We’ve got a live one here, folks.

    “Thinking Ape,” huh? So I suppose you descended from the trees to proffer your wisdom?

  4. You just can’t help it can you. If you want to argue, argue based on what I actually said rather than reducing me to predisposed labels.

    1) I apologize for my reference to hades and to a male cow. I thought that on a blog that it all for the glorification of war could stomach such harsh language.

    2) I am not a conspiracy theorist. Although I would hold both Clinton and Bush accountable on terms of negligence, they were hardly complicity the 9/11 atrocity (I am only assuming this is the conspiracy you are referring to). Everything I mentioned is well documented. If you deny the theocracy of Saudi Arabia, the Cold War financing of rebel forces, or the relationship between the Bushs and Bin Ladens, then lets hear it.

    3) Wisdom, never. Only an attempt to find a place where we can agree on the true enemy. I firmly believe passionate politics is essential to democracy, but liberals calling conservatives murderers and conservatives calling liberals traitors and cowards is hardly getting America anywhere.
