See No Terrorism, Hear No Terrorism

We, the crack young staff of "The Hatemonger's Quarterly," have the sneaking suspicion that a Republican candidate may just eke out a victory in the 2008 presidential race. To be honest, we say this with some surprise: After all, our current Republican president is not popular with voters overall, and one must admit that one can sense a need for political change amongst the American populace.

Still, we have a hunch that the Democrats will blow their extremely good chance to regain the presidency. In this way, the Democrats could resemble the Palestinians many of them so mindlessly champion: They both never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

We say this, dear reader, as the result of our taking in numerous liberal responses to the recent terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom. As you may know (but not if you rely only on left-wing "weblogs" for your news), London recently averted a potentially catastrophic double car-bomb attack. In addition, only a day later a flaming SUV rammed into the Glasgow airport.

And what do our lefty Internet pals have to say about these horrid events? Well, as of this writing, not too bloody much. At the front page of the Daily Kos, for example, you'll find nary a discussion of these twin terrorist plots. Apparently, endless ruminations on the impeachment of President Bush are far more popular.

At the "weblog" of the liberal American Prospect, you won't find anything either. The staff of the Prospect is too shell-shocked over recent Supreme Court decisions to discuss terrorism--though they didn't prevent them from "posting" on more nugatory topics such as China's labor laws.

We only wish we could say the same thing for the loveable loons at The Huffington Post. But no: The Huffy Po dutifully relayed reports of the attacks on their main page, only to be greeted with reader comments claiming they must be CIA plots. Oh, dear.

Quite frankly, dear reader, this speaks to a disgusting malaise amongst the Democratic base. These folks detest President Bush so much that they are fundamentally incapable of seeing the dangers of terrorism. As such, they simply close their eyes and pretend that Islamofascism isn't a threat to the West.

Thus when any terrorist operation results in a military response, many of our lefty pals reflexively decry the military response, claiming that police actions and the courts are the correct responses to attempts at mass slaughters. And when governments stop terrorist attacks before they happen--using the police actions and the courts liberals supposedly hold dear--our left-wing friends claim that the halting of these plots is really a "non-event."

This is a fundamentally unserious response to the global jihad. Our lefty friends might claim that they have less interest in these recent attacks because they didn't occur on American soil. But, gee: When did the Left become so parochial?

If only the Democratic base detested Islamist terrorism half as much as they hate George W. Bush. But it doesn't, and this might lead to another Republican presidential victory.

(Note: The crack young staff normally "weblog" over at "The Hatemonger's Quarterly," where they're currently pondering the fact that Keith Olbermann considers Bill O'Reilly a greater threat to the United States than Osama bin Laden.)

Well, if one had said the Mercedes was parked outside an abortion clinic, then the howls of the Left blogsphere would have been deafening.

Otherwise, this is No.Big.Deal and we are nothing but a bunch of fearmongering pantswetters and we should just Get Out of Moslem Lands, hand over Rushdie, stop offensive Muhammed cartoons, turn our back on Israel and those pesky Joooos and we won't ever have to worry about the bumpersticker terrorism ever again!!

Is this supposed to be a news flash? Of course the Left doesn't care about terrorist attacks. They barely cared about 9/11 until retards like Michael Moore were making them look bad by being so blase about the whole thing.

It's lot closer to day 493 of you making a fool of yourself. If you weren't so innocuous you would have been banned long ago.

Here BD, this is one of your like-minded terrorist-denier brethern:

Picadilly Bomb Scare: The London bomb scare. The intent was clearly the real thing. But what these people put together and left parked, and, authorities say, twice failed to "go off"...Did it even constitute a bomb or would it have been at worst, a car fire?
Of course if it WAS a "car fire" and it had crashed into his front porch he'd be looking for a Depends change about now.

In addition to whining about it being Bush's fault.

Speaking of innocuous: it's marcia, the seat sniffer of thread!

If the Cracked Young Staff has either the time to absorb or the inclination to ponder Olberman's opinions, they really need to get a hobby or something.

Why, that's about as complete a waste of time as reading bryanD's comments.

It has been obvious to me that the lefties have convinced themselves that when GW's term is up, all the terrorists will want to sit down with the infidels and sing Kum-By-Ya. I am not being sarcastic, they really have that mind set. They are obsessed with BDS. ww

Mitchell:

I honestly believe liberals hate their country more than they do terrorists, or terrorism. After all, they can always blame the deranged acts of the terrorists on the U.S.

This is a sad fact of life going back before the Kaiser, Lenin and Stalin, and Hitler. There have always been those among us who through self-loathing accept the lead of the evil rather than their brethren.

kim:

Mitch, this is one reason the Dems are so desperate they'll settle for a bad result to avoid having to own it themselves, and failing that, try very hard to make it Bush's war.

Next year, we are going to be magnificently presented with the case that Bush has been fighting Clinton's war for the last eight years, one that Clinton didn't fight in his eight years.
