The Suicide Party

Via Coldfury

We’ve all said it, and some of them have denied it, but it’s the truth. Call them what you will — left, liberal, Democrat, antiwar, progressivist, cowards, fools, appeasers — but it all adds up to the same thing: they do not believe there should even be a war on Islamist terrorists, much less have any real concern for winning it, and they wish that 9/11 would just go away so we could all get back to our 9/10 state of soporific complacency…while the threat represented by Islamist terrorists and the states that sponsor and support them festers, suppurates, and metastasizes.

They are in truth — as I’ve said so many times — ostriches, so frightened by the realities of life on this planet as to be completely dysfunctioned by that fear, and their only response to it is to bury their heads deeper in the sand.

They do not want to fight Islamism and jihadism; they think the only enemies we have are those we’ve created ourselves, the only attacks we’ll ever suffer are those we deserve, and there are no enemies out there who can’t be made friends through yet another round of UN-managed negotiations or more foreign-aid bribery. They do not understand absolutism or fanaticism, and the only religious fundamentalists they’re willing to firmly confront are those they know will never do them any real harm anyway.

If you want our national defense to be supervised by such people, vote Democrat. I know lots of people — Bill Quick and Al Maviva, two people whose opinions I deeply respect and almost always agree with, come immediately to mind, but there are others — who say they’re done with the Republicans. I sympathize greatly; I’m pretty pissed at them myself. Al and I have tossed some e-mails back and forth about all this, and I simply can’t say he’s wrong; I share his frustration, and I think it’s more than clear that the Repubs do indeed need a damned sharp reminder of what they’re supposed to be all about.

But every time I’m just about to the point of joining Al and Bill and tossing off a long goodbye-and-good-riddance letter to the Repubs here, I run across something like this. And the marrow-freezing thought of the Dems running our foreign-policy and national-security strategies stops me dead in my tracks.

And it’s no use to say that this guy only represents a fraction of the Democrats, or that the Kossacks don’t represent the mainstream. That’s crap, and we all know it. The Daily Kos, no matter what the small, beleaguered handful of Lieberman supporters out there may wishfully think, is the face of the Dems today. And even if it wasn’t, anyone who can raise that much money for the principle-bereft, poll-driven swine that the Dems have become is guaranteed to have a voice in their agenda.

Sure, “forget 9/11? isn’t official policy for the Donks…yet. But once the inmates of the Kos asylum decide it should be, then the Dems will obligingly consider it. Taxi drivers don’t get to decide who rides and who doesn’t; they take on whoever pays ‘em, and they go where they’re told. And so do whores.

And this is how their core supporters, whose voices will be heard, think. They, in their foreign-policy enlightenment, are “over” 9/11. They think we all should share their myopic “wisdom.” They want to take us back to 9/10. If allowed to, they will guarantee repeat performances of the most devastating attack perpetrated on American soil since Pearl Harbor, over and over again, until we either learn they’re not only incapable of defending our country but disinterested in it, or we submit to a dhimmitude they self-servingly refuse to admit the existence of, one small, Cartoon Jihad-like step at a time. Years from now, maybe these Dhimmi-crats will be smacking their lips over the delicious shit sandwich they’re being fed, but that won’t make the one they’re pressing to our lips any more palatable.

And they’re too damned blind and/or stupid to see that we already traveled the road they want to put us on, and its last mile is a gore-smeared stretch of concrete with American corpses strewn across it — crushed from having fallen over a hundred stories to a gruesome death that could have been avoided but for our own wishful thinking, our own blissful ignorance, our own fear of confronting the harsher realities of the war we’re in — a war we’ll either win or lose, but don’t have the luxury of opting out of, and never did. Apparently, the road they want us on runs in a circle, and the law requires that we travel it blindfolded.

Compare: the Islamists will never give in, and you can bet that they aren’t eager to forget their great triumph on 9/11; they’re in this for the long haul, for a thousand years if necessary, and anyone who doesn’t believe it is cordially invited to just ask them. Alternatively, you could consult the history books for a refutation of that untenable disbelief. On the other hand, the LLL/MSM/Dem Axis is exhausted, and ready to “move on” after less than five years. If we’re so foolish ourselves as to let them run the fight, guess who’s going to win it?

There must not be another Democrat President until this sort of delusional, irresponsible “thinking” is stamped out root and branch. The Democrats and their feckless policies are an indulgence, proffering a risk we can’t afford to take. There’s simply not much else to be said.

Christine, you can't hear it but I am standing up and applauding.

You describe my outlook exactly.

The Republicans seem to be on a crash course of alienating their own electorate at the moment, but the alternative offers no promise of any net gain.

Will voting the Republicans out of office teach them a lesson? Perhaps, but the danger with this policy is that America may not survive in tact the following four years.

There are more important issues facing the United States right now.

The question is not "are you happy with Republican government right now," it's "will the Democrats do a better job?"

The answer to that, it seems plain, is a resounding "no".

Yep, I agree that teaching them a lesson by voting them out would leave us in trouble, sort of cutting off our nose to spite our faces, even if it did teach them. I think at this point, the best way to teach the Republican Party a lesson is to voice and show that we and most of their base are not happy with the way that they're dealing with many issues, and that we will splinter off as necessary. Grass-roots support for more maverick Rebublicans such as George Allen and Tom Tancredo is growing, and I think the GOP needs to be shown that these men and those who are reacting to the issues like them are the ones we want to represent us, not the "bend-over" types giving in all over the place. If they're that willing to give in, then maybe a loud and clear signal from their party base will cause some change. Keep shaking things up and encouraging others. I call offices all the time. Call the GOP. Tell them. Once they get enough calls on a subject, the'll change their tack. You see how they react to polls.

Christine,

A brilliant piece; you speak for so many of us.

Pim's Ghost,

Not long ago over at Whatwouldcharlesmarteldo, you hosted a discussion about what to do about this, including the formation of a third party.

Truly, that may be the only answer. Other attempts to form a third party have failed because the Democrats and Republicans have constructed barriers that are almost insupperable - UNLESS the people realled get massively PISSED about the current situation.

I think that if politicians who "get it" (Tancredo and Allen et al.) let it be known that they are opposed to 1) the Islamification of America and 2) to the destruction of America's national sovereignty, there will be enough popular support for them that a third party could be formed.

BTW, most of us know that the Minutemen plan to begin building a fense a la http://www.weneedafence.com on private property, with the support of property owners, for about $150/foot (that works out to be $12.50/inch, and we are going to buy several inches).

Maybe, though, you have not heard that the government, which considers the Minutemen to be "vigilantes," has threatened to come onto private property and bulldoze the fences built with private funds with the support of the private property "owners."

Anybody remember Kelo vs. CT? If this happened, what would your response be?

I couldn't agree more. This widespread and utter denial must cease. It is going to get us all enslaved or killed or generally make life a lot more miserable than any of could imagine. What if there is another attack on the scale of 9-11. It surely will transform our society. It will have to for us to survive.

It just hit me as to how profound this statement about Democrats was. It seems to nicely sum up the history of the Democrats in modern times. It certainly bares repeating:

"They are in truth — as I’ve said so many times — ostriches, so frightened by the realities of life on this planet as to be completely dysfunctioned by that fear, and their only response to it is to bury their heads deeper in the sand."

The President has stated several times that Islam is a religion of peace and that the Saudis are friends & allies. It must gladden his heart to have so much support given to this hardline approach.
