Again today my pulse quickened and my breathing became short as I struggled to keep my GIANT SUV from running over the stupid Hybrid in front of me. My sudden incoherence was brought on by hearing Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, run down our military by making an outright comparison of their treatment of captured terrorists in military prisons to the Nazis, the Soviet Gulags and the genocide of Pol Pot. This is a senior Senator in our own Federal Government! Not an extremist Muslim sympathizer, or a morally retarded Frenchman. This is the kind of rhetoric normally reserved for America haters, not U.S. Senators - of any party. But alas, this is what we must expect, and have come to routinely experience from today’s Democrats. They have been pulled so far left by the communists on the extreme left that the party has little in common with the heart and soul of mainstream Americans. Whether it's Howard "I have a scream" Dean, John "what's truth" Kerry, Hillary "the ice queen" Clinton, Robert "KKK" Byrd, or Teddy "drink n drive" Kennedy, they have a consistent message, Democrats are for nothing except the promotion of one world socialism, and hating all things that preserve American traditions, heritage and culture. This hatred is especially focused on the destruction anything conservative, religious and military. Of this new breed of hate filled leftists, apparently Dick Durbin has wandered to the front of the pack.
Specifically, on the floor of the Senate, Durbin said, "If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."
My outrage is not only at the insanity of that comparison, but also at the silence of Republicans in the Senate. Where is the fiery retort? Majority leader Bill Frist needs to take the floor tomorrow and publicly call for the censure of Durbin at the very least! We are at war with an unprecedented enemy. One who would incinerate thousands of innocent Americans along with themselves with joy. Our military has been more civil to these sub humans than any military has been to prisoners of war throughout the history of humanity! Give me a break! So what if they sit in a cold cell over night, or a hot cell, or are forced to listen to loud pop music, or a dog barks at them, or even worse, they see women's underwear! OH ALAH!! Get a grip people; these men are terrorists who want to kill us. They deserve a .44 slug, soaked in pig blood, to send them to their buddy, Mohammed. What we give them is far better than what they deserve. Dick Durbin and the democrats should know this but they are so blinded by their hate and rage that reason will continue to elude them, And therefore, so will political victories. So there is a silver lining afterall.
