Did you hear it? Do you hear it? The ghoulish cheering from the Democrats and their base groups like DemocraticUnderground, People for the American Way, MoveOn.org, and from their shining celebrities, Cindy (Look at Me) Sheehan and Michael Moore as they celebrate the 2000th soldier’s death in Iraq is a disgusting manifestation of their Machiavellian dreams. After all, to them the death of 2000 American soldiers is a small enough price to pay if they can get themselves elected into office.
Congressman McGovern (Dem. Mass.) described it this morning as a “milestone.” What a sad thing for an American Congressman to say. For an American Representative to be so coldly calculating and so unsympathetic is disgusting. Disgusting maybe, but entirely predictable for Democrats, there is no bad event or loss of American life that can’t be turned to their advantage. Mind you, they don’t really care about the soldiers or the American people, only what they can gain politically from their deaths. This attitude is not hard to understand; hatred motivates them. They live and breathe hatred. They hate President Bush with a passion that defies logic. They hate Conservative voters and openly and continually denigrate them as “stupid” or “ignorant” or “uninformed.” Their contempt for their fellow Americans is a sad testimony to their ambitions. If you don’t agree with their point of view, you must either be “stupid” or evil. It is beyond their imagination that anyone could disagree with them and still be intelligent, caring, and motivated by good. The depth of their hatred is frightening.
If you listen to them speak, you will hear lies. Every time they say that we went to war for a lie, it is a lie. Every time they say, as Representative McGovern said this morning, “President Bush said that Iraq was an imminent threat,” it is a lie.
“Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words, and all recriminations would come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option.”
--President Bush, State of the Union Speech, January 28th, 2003
Every time they say that Al Qaeda was never in Iraq, as Mr. McGovern said this morning on C-span, it is a lie. Every they tell us that President Bush told us Iraq had nuclear weapons, it’s a lie.
“The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed in the 1990s that Saddam Hussein had an advanced nuclear weapons development program, had a design for a nuclear weapon and was working on five different methods of enriching uranium for a bomb. The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” [Ibid]
Every time Democrats say that our original decision to go into Iraq had nothing to do with building a democracy, it is a lie. Everytime we are told, as we were by Representative McGovern this morning that the President told us that this would be an easy or quick campaign, it is a lie. In the President’s own words:
“My fellow citizens, at this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger...We have no ambition in Iraq, except to remove a threat and restore control of that country to its own people...A campaign on the harsh terrain of a nation as large as California could be longer and more difficult than some predict. And helping Iraqis achieve a united, stable and free country will require our sustained commitment.”
--President Bush, Speech to America, March 19th, 2003
Democrats lie so often and easily that one has to doubt they even know the difference between the truth and a lie. In their opposition to the Iraq War and their hatred of President Bush they have become “positively unhinged.” Of course it’s not just Democrats celebrating, our “unbiased” MSM have been out in front cheer-leading the approaching “milestone.”
What? You don’t think they are celebrating? Try this on for size.
“The milestone [there’s that word again] came amid growing anti-war sentiment in the United States, and activists planned a series of demonstrations...Cindy Sheehan, the anti-war protester who lost a son in the war, began demonstrating Tuesday in front of the White House. MoveOn.org, a leading opponent of the war, planned candlelight vigils across the country in remembrance of troops who have died.”
Los Angeles Times, October 26, 2005
Or read this from the New York Lies, Dang! Times! Times! (I have such a hard time with that paper’s name) in an International Herald Tribune article by Brian Knowlton:
“The deaths of 2,000 Americans is [sic] being seized by antiwar groups to underscore their arguments for withdrawal from Iraq, even as polls show most Americans now believe the war was a mistake.”
If Democrats are speaking, they are lying. There is method to their madness, because they know that if they tell the truth they will be laughed out of the room. When Americans are told the truth about the war in Iraq, they support it. It the Democrats truly explained their concept of governing: socialism and pervasive, invasive government, gun confiscation, abortion on demand, the abolition of all Christian symbols in public, and surrender to the terrorists, they would only receive about 20-25% of the vote. That is why they must lie. Democrats and Liberals do not believe in capitalism, they don’t believe in freedom, and they don’t believe in America. They believe in World Government, redistribution of wealth, and enslavement to the government.
Don’t think their celebrating? I give you Senator Edward (the Killer) Kennedy. He described Tuesday’s news of the 2000th death as an “auspicious day.” I guess anyone who can leave a young woman to die of drowning could call the death of 2000 American soldiers “auspicious.”
God save us from Democrat’s “auspicious” days.
God Bless Our Troops and Their Families, may we never forget or disgrace their sacrifices.
