Ann Coulter's Right: Liberal Democrats Always Aid Terrorists and Thugs
by Jim Kouri, CPP
When the princess of the conservative movement, Ann Coulter, published her latest book Godless: The Church of Liberalism, the liberal-left media and the liberal-Democrat establishment jumped all over a few decidely over-the-top paragraphs about the so-called "Jersey Girls." But they wisely avoided discussing some of her other assertions about liberal Democrats.
One of her major assertions is that as a rule Democrats will always side with murderers, robbers and terrorists. They don't side with rapists only because the crime of rape provides an opportunity to score points with feminists while denigrating white males. Unless, that is, the rapist happens to be black and the victim white, in which case they will side with the rapist because it allows them to indulge in race politics and utter soundbites about lynchings in the south.
It appears the Dems are unintentionally proving Coulter's point during the Israeli battle against arguably the most powerful terrorist group on the planet, Hezbollah.
For instance, Senate Democratic leaders on Friday demanded that President George W. Bush dispatch "a high-level special envoy" to the Middle East to work with allies and negotiate an end to the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah terrorists who are using civilians as shields in Lebanon.
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, said in a letter to Bush -- that was simultaneously delivered to every major newsroom in the world -- that they were "surprised" that Secretary of State Condi Rice planned only a brief visit to the region.
While saying about ten times a day that they support Israel, they are taking issue with the Bush Administration's lack of a plan to bring about a cease-fire. The good senators are very upset that Bush's "disengagement" is allowing the Israelis to kill, maim and injure every terrorist they can locate.
Which begs the question: Why would the president wish to broker a cease-fire against a terrorist group that not only kills Jews, but also killed over 240 US Marines stationed in Lebanon as peacekeepers in 1983?
If anything, President Bush should be concerned about the Israelis having enough ammunition, bombs, rockets, missiles, tanks and planes. That's the kind of engagement necessary to send those religious cutthroats to their 72 virgins.
"Hi there, Ehud. It's George. You got enough ammo and equipment? Good. Well let me know if you need anything. Wait... Ehud. How about some of our bunker busters?"
The major media organizations, which we all know are lapdogs for the liberal politicians, are bombarding the American people with the key talking point that the Democrats support Israel. It's the same type of support they generously bestow upon our own troops -- you know, the troops they call Nazis, cold-blooded killers who run gulags and torture prisoners, while terrorizing women and children in the dark of night. Yeah, those troops. Good thing these libs support the US troops. I'd hate to hear what they have to say about our military if they didn't support them.
So our friends on the left support Israel, but they want them to stop killing terrorists. It's part and parcel of what Coulter describes in her book as a love affair with savages.
"But innocent Lebanese are being killed," the libs say. Well, the fault for that should be pinned on Hezbollah, which uses civilians as human shields. The libs want the Israelis to use "proportionate force," what ever the hell that is. Do they want Israel's soldiers to strap on explosives and conduct suicide missions against Lebanese civilians? And isn't it proportionate when Hezbollah and Hamas fire rockets into Israel's cities killing and maiming civilians, and Israel fires their rockets and missiles into Lebanon? Actually, the civilian deaths and injuries caused by Israel are collateral, while Hezbollah is targeting civilians.
So, in order to score political points, these Democrat leaders want Bush to use the Clintonian strategy of talking... and talking... and talking. They want a special envoy sent to negotiate a cease-fire. If I were Bush, I'd have the State Department tap Joe Wilson for the temporary post. He'd be the perfect man for the job. Afterall, he did get American embassy toilets to work properly.
