Where are all the “liberal” voices against the new war in Libya? I often go to the huffingtonpost.com to see what the trendy progressives think of current events. After wading through the disgusting fluff about the latest celebrity ”baby bump” or who is “stepping out” with their significant other, you will find links to corporate news stories dealing with world issues. Real dissent is not found on AOL/huffingtonpost. You will only get the company line, or some small variation there of. The comment sections on these stories are so disgraceful that it makes the Fox news audience look enlightened. There is one intellectual comment for every hundred hypocritical pro-war rants. “Gaddafi is a brutal dictator who must be stopped from killing the freedom-loving rebels.” “The brave rebels need our support.” Recently, Gaddafi asked what Obama would do if rebels attacked an American city. First off, Obama wouldn’t do anything. He makes no decisions for himself. He is a sock puppet who has such a sordid past that he would never step out of line, for fear of being exposed as the fraud that he really is. To answer Gaddafi’s question, the powers that be would probably light off a neutron bomb on the rebels and then use the media to blame it on the terrifying Osama bin Laden and the omnipotent Al Qaeda (correctly pronounced Al- CIA duh).
How many times will these enlightened, progressive voices use mental gymnastics to call for democracy to be delivered from fighter jets? The vast majority of Americans will believe the media’s spin on the “new Hitler” every time. Most probably lack the ability to understand that about 6 billion or so people see the U.S. and the western world as the new Nazis. Whatever that means. – Editor
