To Democrats, Republicans are ‘Terrorists,’ But the Taliban is Legit

While Democrats always pretend to look aghast at the purported “vile rhetoric” of the right, the truth is it is the left that is filled with a constant stream of hate speech. Worse, while Democrats are positive that there is no such thing as a terrorist in Afghanistan, Iraq or the wider Middle East, they are equally certain that the only true terrorists are Republicans. And we have two democrats affirming that position this month.

Take California’s Democrat Representative Jackie Speier who just yesterday said that the Taliban surely aren’t terrorists. They are, she insisted, legitimate representatives of the Afghan government.

Naturally, this terror excuser said this on MSNBC, the least trusted news source in America. Speier told MSNBC’s Kristen Welker, that the Taliban is not really a terror outfit.

“Let me underscore the term ‘terrorists,’” Speier told MSNBC. “The Taliban is a part of the fabric of Afghanistan.”

Rep. Speier seems to forget that we invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban was giving aide to al Qaeda in general and Ossam bin Laden in particular.

Meanwhile, the vile loudmouth from New York, Democrat Congressman Jerrold Nadler, said that the Republicans are terrorists, because they are like “suicide bombers,” then he compounded matters by claiming that the Taliban was somehow “just like” the American Revolutionaries who separated from Britain and stated our own country.

As Rusty Weiss pointed out, Nadler thinks “Republicans equate to suicide bombers, while an organization known for suicide bombings equate to American patriots.”

    “Taliban” is just MSM- and government-speak for: Pashtun guys who don’t like foreign invaders.

    Bin Laden is dead. Why are Americans still dying in Afghanistan?

    • warnertoddhuston

      You re right about one thing: there is no such thing a “the Taliban.” There are multiple groups that align with the Taliban, but there is no one Taliban organization. In fact, to over simplify there are essentially two loos groups. One out of Afghanistan and another out of Pakistan and even those are not a centrally organized system.

      • Commander_Chico

        The Arabic terms to describe these groups amuses me. “Taliban” طلبا means “students.” “Al Shabab” الشباب means “the youth.” Al Qaeda القاعدة means “the base.” Do you know how you say baseball in Arabic? Ball of Al Qaeda – kurat al qaeda.

        Wake up and smell the propaganda, Warner.

        • jim_m

          Idiot. Just because groups choose simple, common names for their organizations does not mean that those organizations or associations do not and never have existed. Who’s falling for the propaganda?

        • warnertoddhuston

          Many American Indians’ tribe names simply mean “the people,” too. So what?

          • jim_m

            Catholic simply means “Universal”. I don’t think that anyone takes it to mean the one and only church in the universe any more.

          • Commander_Chico

            Well, encourage your kids to volunteer for the war against the terrible “Taliban,” then. Otherwise those illiterate tribesmen might come over to the USA and take your Iphones.

          • warnertoddhuston

            Mine already did.

          • Commander_Chico

            Good luck to him or her. I hope he or she comes out well. It can be a good experience if it breaks the right way.

            Despite your example…

          • jim_m

            That comment makes no sense at all

          • Commander_Chico

            “Breaks” in the sense of “moves” or “goes.” As in, “that’s the breaks.”

          • Jwb10001

            Hey Chico, send me your address there’s a letter here for you from some D. Cheney. It might be something important. Ha ha ha ha you have become the biggest joke on the interwebs today dude.

          • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

            He’s been the biggest joke on the interwebs for as long as I have been aware of him.

            Be sure to send that comment to you putative reviewing officer.

          • Commander_Chico

            I am retired no more piss tests.

        • Vagabond661

          Chico means little boy…..so?

    Howard Dean told attendees at a fundraiser recently that Republicans “are not American” and would “be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia.” He also screamed that GOP supporters should “stay away from our country.”

    Meanwhile, Valerie Jarret met with some illegal immigrant activists and was reported to have stated that illegal immigrants ” are exactly the kind of people we would want in this country…..They are the best that we have,”

    • jim_m

      The 9/11 hijackers were all here illegally. I am sure that she would have welcomed them – even after murdering 3000 people.

  • jim_m

    She’s right. The Taliban is part of the fabric of Afghanistan, just as the Nazi’s were part of the fabric of Germany. The choice is whether you want it to be the whole cloth or if you will cut those threads and remove them. The democrats choose once again to align themselves with the enemies of civilization.

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      I don’t think it’s a conscious choice. They’re reflexively against whatever Republicans stand for – it’s a conditioned response and they’ve got no more control over it than you would over cursing when you stub your toe in the middle of the night… or a baby has of shitting in a diaper.

      • jim_m

        I disagree. I think that they are consciously making this choice. Over time the action becomes reflexive but it originates in a conscious choice.

        • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

          In the beginning, yes. That was back under Bush, when they couldn’t allow any sort of success by a Republican president. But now it’s reflexive – Obama could be trying to cut their leg off with a rusty axe and they’d fight anyone trying to stop it.

    ‘Taliban claim deadly attack on Karachi airport’ The Pakistani Taliban have said they were behind an assault on the country’s largest airport that killed at least 28 people, including all 10 attackers.

    • jim_m

      So how racist is it to declare that terrorism is just a normal part of this society and that we should not expect these people to behave in a civilized manner? Mass murder of innocents is normal.

      And if mass murder is normal for them why the hell does the left bitch about mass shootings here? WTF? Why should we not consider the mass murder by the mentally ill in the US as “part of the fabric” of our society?

      Unless of course all you lefties are just a bunch of racist douchebags.

      Our soi disant “cognoscenti veteran” says you know naught whereof you speak.

  • Paul Hooson

    Well, these are certainly very ignorant statements by theses two Democrats, where maybe some sort of minimum IQ level should be required to hold some public offices. – I’m also very concerned that these lawmakers also fail to comprehend the extent of danger that the Taliban pose around the world if left unchecked. In Pakistan, the Taliban was responsible for the terrorist attack at the large Karachi Airport that left 29 dead and deadly explosions were set off in a failed attempt to hijack an airliner to use as a possible suicide bomber weapon. Any nation that the Taliban operates in, they pose a serious terrorist threat. Further, while publicly proclaiming themselves as some sort of religious fighters, they heavily fund themselves with billions of dollars in illegal drug trade, responsible for nearly 75% of the world heroin trade. Part of the reason for the 1979 invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviets was the growing problems of a heroin flow into Russia and growing problems addiction as the weak Communist government in the country was collapsing.

    Ignoring the Taliban won’t make them go away. They will continue to kill Americans either through terrorism or through heroin addiction. They will be an ongoing threat unless the U.S. and other world powers continue to hit this organization hard with military action worldwide, giving the Taliban no safe haven anywhere.

    It seems like there are always more Democrats willing to step up and race to the bottom of the intellectual gutter to compete with such notable luminaries of vapid hatred like Cynthia McKinney, Grayson, Dean and Wasserman-Schultz.
    I can’t imagine the rationalization voters go through to elect or re-elect such nasty pieces of work.

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      Please don’t include DW-S in the list with Cynthia McKinney.

      I believe DW-S is actually sane, but – as the saying goes – ‘dancing with the ones that brung her’. She KNOWS who’s gotten her otherwise totally mediocre assets into the position she’s in now, and like a good politician she’ll stay loyally bought until she gets a better offer. And she knows she’s not going to get it, because nobody else wants her as a vapid figurehead.

      So if she’s told Benghazi was because of a video? She’ll repeat it. Berghdal was a hero? She’ll repeat it. Space Aliens are causing global warming? She’ll repeat it. Koch brothers eat babies? She’ll repeat it. Raising the minimum wage to $100 an hour will cause prices at McDonalds to fall, in this bested economy EVARRR?? She’ll repeat it – and be glad of the work.

      McKinney’s just plain insane.

      I’m starting to think that the idiots inside the beltway just don’t get that ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ was simple marketing and NOT an accurate summation of reality. They really seem to believe that the geopolitical crises happening around the world aren’t going to affect the US because they’re not happening in their districts, to their voters. They haven’t got the grasp of a mayfly on the concept of tomorrow, and that their maneuvering to cover their ass today and advantage themselves in the next election can cause serious repercussions down the road.

      Sadly, most on both sides are infected with this. I think SOME democrats are starting to wake up, but only time will tell… and I’m not sure how much time we’ve really got left before someone in that region makes a nuke-backed power grab, and all hell breaks loose.

    Hey guys, head over the Cantor thread, Chico claims over there that Cheney and Rumsfeld sent the anthrax letters in 2001. If you didn’t already know he was nuts that should seal the deal.
