To her utter shame, Hillary Rotten used this somber ceremony to blame the content of a YouTube video for the cold-blooded murder of the four Americans--US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three of his staff. Stevens, according to some accounts, was sodomized by these savages before he was killed, then dragged through the streets of Benghazi. Photos show the victims were dragged from the buildings with their blood on the walls.
And a silly little YouTube video is blamed for this savagery?
Today, the German embassy was also attacked. Tell me, did the Germans release any videos on YouTube that are offensive? Hadn't heard of any.
The black al-Queda flag, which flew over the US Embassy in Egypt on 9/11/12, flew today over two other US Embassies, those in Yemen and Tunisia (another "Arab Spring" nation).
But the dolt Jay Carney, who is the Regime Propaganda Minister, says the protests "aren't directed at the United States."
Then why are US flags being burned, moron? Why were our embassies targeted on 9/11 and four Americans murdered?
Hillary Rotten wrings her hands the other day, asking why oh why could this have happened after the US helped overthrow Libyan dictator Muamar Qudaffi.
Well, if we were really honest, could it be we were attacked because of the significance of September 11? It was the day when radical Muslim jihadists attacked America and killed 3,000 of our citizens.
But no! That fact has been lost to Hillary, who was a New York Senator at the time, and was angling to find some way of attacking George W. Bush for it. To liberals, 9/11 was a GOP invention, created by Bush/Cheney Inc. as an excuse to pick on poor innocent Muslims, grab their oil and make themselves rich.
It goes further back than 9/11/01. Go back to 1979, when America's second worst President helped a supposed "moderate" cleric in exile in France get into power in Iran, overthrowing our ally the Shah. Near the end of the year, the Ayatollah's followers raided our embassy and held our staff hostage for 444 days. That was the start of the rise of Islamic terror that was behind bombings of the Marine barracks in Beruit in 1983, and kidnappings, hijackings in 1985 of Americans. In the 1990s, the bombing of the World Trade Center, Khobar Towers, US Embassies and the USS Cole were met with only empty words of condemnation by Hillary's partner in crime, Slick Willie Clinton. Jihadists saw the Clinton fecklessness and thought the US was a pushover. Until George W. Bush acted like a leader and stood up to them.
But liberals, always quick to forget the past and end up doomed to repeat it, thought more appeasement was needed, and sought to pursue the Sally Field Diplomacy of making the jihadists "like us, they really like us!" As Obama said in 2007, "The Day I’m Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease."
And How's That Hopey Changey Thing working for us? The phrase "Global War on Terror" was replaced with "Overseas Contingency Operation," and the sacred day we honor our fallen on September 11th became "Volunteer Day" another day to mow your neighbor's lawn or take their trash can to the curb. The infamous Cairo Grovel to the Muslim World speech in 2009 was given by The Anointed One and support of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. Yet all that ass kissing by Obama didn't stop the 2009 Fort Hood Jihadist (now called "workplace violence"), or the attempted Christmas Underwear bomber. The Times Square bomber was considered a "opponent of health care reform" by dhimmi N.Y. Mayor Bloomberg and other instances of jihad (the Marine Corps Museum shooter, etc) were viewed as "isolated incidents."
And now, the jihad of 9/11/2012 and the aftershocks this week are being blamed on a stupid YouTube clip, never mind the history I just noted...that radical Islamists have an irrational hate towards the U.S. and the West.
Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection duly noted:
This all comes from an administration and political party backed by people who regularly denigrate Christianity, and who are running a campaign focused on forcing American Catholics to abandon their religious principles and to cast aside their hurt feelings on issues of life.
This all is a result of Barack Obama’s delusional approach to the Middle East, one in which we are the perpetual villain, and in which we had to supplicate ourselves and our allies by heaping praise on people who do not ever return the favor.
Outreach to Muslims in the Middle East who return the respect is one thing, and should be encouraged; prostrating ourselves either physically or intellectually to Islamists is quite another thing.
In 1951, Gen Douglas MacArthur, after being fired by President Harry Truman, told a joint session of Congress:
"War's very object is victory, not prolonged indecision. In war there is no substitute for victory. There are some who, for varying reasons, would appease Red China. They are blind to history's clear lesson, for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier war. It points to no single instance where this end has justified that means, where appeasement has led to more than a sham peace."
