Your side is, unfortunately, the Enemy
Your side is, unfortunately, the Enemy – It comes from the left, and it comes from the right. “Your politics are different from mine. Therefore, you are the Enemy, and I shall deny you my precious ‘Linky-Love’”
The title of this entry comes from this quote: “We are at War—as much with Liberals as we are with Islamist terrorists. Your side is, unfortunately, the Enemy. Which is why you see Democrats like Cythnia McKinney actually supported by Islamists and the same Islamists who fund terrorism.”
Excuse me, please, but here in Ga. District 4, we replaced Cynthia McKinney with a woman who supports the war on terror. She even voted for Alan Keyes in the 2000 election. You might even say Denise Majette was Cynthia McKinney’s “enemy” (Cynthia certainly would).
She’s also a Democrat. A damn fine one. Yes, I voted Democrat. Go ahead and delink me.
From the weblog debates, er, I mean, delinking, you’d think we didn’t live in a free country, where people can exercise their political rights in any legal way. You’d think it wasn’t the foundation of this country. You’d think this country was started by two closed minded parties, “at war” from Day One. You’d think we were in the middle of a developing Uncivil War, fueled by fear of “those who are different.” The Enemy.
Of course, you have the right to do whatever you want with your weblog, and your politics. You also have the right to look damn foolish doing so. You can very quickly become very similar to the very thing you hate.
Isolationism. That’s what Al Qaeda wants to drive us into. They don’t even need to try hard, because some are doing it to themselves, within their politics, within their own web logs.
Keep it up, Americans! (oops, sorry, that’s too broad a term these days … it doesn’t fit for some people, you’re either Us or Them).
