Conservatives hate us for our freedoms

Lest we forget, as we madly embark on our 'new direction for America':

Wouldn't it be great if anybody who speaks out against this country, to kick them out of the country? Anybody that threatens this country, kick 'em out. We'd get rid of Michael Moore, we'd get rid of half the Democratic Party if we would just import that law. That would be fabulous. The Supreme Court ought to look into this. Absolutely brilliant idea out there.
Rush Limbaugh, August 11 2005


And any American that undermines that war, with our soldiers in the field, or undermines the war on terror, with 3,000 dead on 9-11, is a traitor. Everybody got it? Dissent, fine; undermining, you're a traitor. Got it? So, all those clowns over at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains, because they, you know, they're undermining everything and they don't care, couldn't care less. Bill O'Reilly, June 20 2005

I want to direct you to a traitor. In my opinion, she should be tried for treason, and when she's found guilty, she should be hung. And when she is hung, maybe the other quislings in our government will get the message that we're going to crack down on them, and that our safety and the safety our children mean something to us. The picture I have on michaelsavage.com of Madeleine Albright holding hands with Kim Jong Il the Second [sic] should chill you to your core. I don't know which one is uglier; I don't know which one is more sinister, but this is not a laughing matter. Madeleine Albright went to North Korea... She is the traitor.
Michael Savage, October 9, 2006


If the enemy of my enemy is my friend, then Senator Russ Feingold, Democrat of Wisconsin, and Osama bin Laden are buddies. If the definition of a traitor is a person who tries to undermined the Commander and Chief during time of war, then Senator Russ Feingold is a traitor.
Joseph R. Gutheinz, Jr., J.D., March 12, 2006 09:53 PM EST


Liberals have a preternatural gift for striking a position on the side of treason. You could be talking about Scrabble and they would instantly leap to the anti-American position. Everyone says liberals love America, too. No they don’t. Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy. This is their essence.
Ann Coulter, TREASON, June 24 2003


Ah, those golden oldies. A real blast from the past.

Of course, here in the newly minted Democrat dominated Millenium, stuff like this just won't happen any more. From now on, our political discourse will be civil, restrained, and polite. No one will call for someone's immediate deportation, arrest, or grisly execution simply because of a philosophical disagreement. Those terrible days are behind us. Now we're all about the bipartisanship, the mutual respect, the recognition that we all have a right to express ourselves freely without being threatened with violence for it.

Well, I'll believe it if you will.

A little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues.

Dick Cheney, October 5, 2004

"Trying to eliminate Saddam, extending the ground war into an occupation of Iraq, would have violated our guideline about not changing objectives in midstream, engaging in "mission creep," and would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible. We had been unable to find Noriega in Panama, which we knew intimately. We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. The coalition would instantly have collapsed, the Arabs deserting it in anger and other allies pulling out as well. Under those circumstances, furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-cold war world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the U.N.'s mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the U.S. could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land. It would have been a dramatically different — and perhaps barren — outcome."

George H.W. Bush, Time Magazine 1998, psychic

In 1999, that same Mr. Former President Bush, lobbed this beauty at a CIA agency meeting...

Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the identity of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors.

but I'm sure he wasn't talking about anyone he knew personally.

And yeah, despite things like finger-pointing at John Kerry about "flip-flopping" on issues, and promises about NO NEW TAXES (and then turning around and levying them), the republicans really mean what THEY say.

This time.

I've completely missed adding a very appropo quote that SuperDependableTeen shared with me just this morning. She said, "Remember, Mom, there is no slaughter without 'laughter'."

Indeed.

Mmmm. Nice quotes, luv. From a historical standpoint, what few people remember these days -- or ever knew, probably -- is that Hussein was always the U.S.'s stooge in the Middle East. We pretty much put him in power, and supported him in all his atrocities. He was meant to be our bulwark against Islamic fanaticism, and to make sure that we continued to have access to Middle Eastern oil at reasonable rates -- or, at least, under conditions that the western energy cartels would find profitable.

Hussein upset the applecart badly when he invaded Kuwait, and had to be slapped for it, but it was never in the cards that the U.S. would actually depose him. He was too valuable to us right where he was.

This is largely why he simply could not believe all Dubya's 'invasion' rhetoric, and felt safe in defying the various orders the U.S. got pushed through the Security Council. He felt secure in his position... and would have been, if he hadn't started jacking around with Iraq's oil pumping quotas. Once he did that, though, he had to go.

Under Bush I, one set of conditions obtained -- Saddam got a little spanking, and could now be relied on to toe our line again. Under Bush II, he'd gone off the reservation too many times, and had to go. It certainly does seem inconsistent... but not if one pays attention to the real politics that rarely make it into the newspapers or history books.
