Right Wing Nut House



Filed under: Politics — Rick Moran @ 2:45 pm

There’s an old Scottish prayer that goes:

From Ghoulies and Ghosties
and long legged beasties
and things that go bump in the night,
Oh Lord! Deliver us.

I’d like to make an addition to that collection of phantasms and include Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, AKA “Kos” and all his minions and hangers-on who emerge occasionally from the nether reaches of planet earth to spew the most vile and corrupt conceits against the United States and its military while giving aid and comfort to those who would destroy us.

They are despicable.

Defending Senator Durbin’s remarks equating American soldiers with Nazis and Pol Pot is one thing. That kind of political mud wrestling is part of the game. But to then turn the response to Senator Durbin’s baseless and hysterical charges into a countercharge alleging that people who criticize the Senator are supporting torture is so beyond the pale as to make it unrecognizable as political discourse.

This is too much:

To the pea brains on the Right, incapable of reading the English language in its most basic, unuanced form, they claim Durbin is calling our troops Nazis. The Wingnutosphere is making that claim. Rush is making that claim. Hannity is making that claim. Drudge is making that claim. Look to Fox News to jump on the bandwagon tomorrow.

Of course, what Durbin is saying is that such torture — undisputed, by the way, and read from an FBI report — is more at home in a place like Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany than in a modern Democracy.

Only an idiot would call the interrogation techniques used on that murderous thug torture. Only a fool would say this:

And these cowards — these people who will neither serve the cause they claim is so vital, nor urge others to serve it — now rush to defend behavior that is indefensible?


The FBI report is full of “torture” techniques like this. Let’s not forget “the finger in the chest” routine. Ach! That’s Medieval! What’s next, the rack? Or how about the technique our ogreish interrogators came up with all on their own; the infamous “Drink Water or Wear it” torture where the poor, innocent beheader of women was splashed with water.

Powerline had the perfect response to this nonsense:

By the way, there is a serious point to be made here. No one thinks that playing Christina Aguilera music, shaving a guy’s beard off, and putting him in the same room with a woman are the most effective ways to extract information from a detainee. The reason why these unorthodox methods were used, obviously, is that the more effective, but less humane, techniques that have been used since time immemorial were banned by our civilian authorities, and the American military took seriously the restrictions under which they were operating. The mildness with which terrorist detainees have been treated stands as an imperishable monument to the greatness of the American spirit and the moderation of the Bush administration.

I’ve said many times since 9/11 that my eyes have been opened to the perfidy and faithlessness of the left. I no longer feel constrained to voice the thought that they are collectively a traitorous lot with no more regard for this country (NOT the President. The United States of America) than my pet cat.

I’m sick to death of them excusing their giving aid and comfort to enemies who wish to kill us all as nothing more than some kind of patriotism recognized as such only by them . It’s not working anymore, not when our enemies are the only ones cheering them on. When al Jazeera isn’t talking about torture but how people like the Kossaks are condemning their own country for stress techniques that wouldn’t injure anyone - much less a hardened terrorist - then you can be sure that your advocacy for the comfort of the murderous beheaders is not going unnoticed.

Congratulations. You should be right proud of yourselves. Too bad this isn’t 1945 instead of 2005. Your advocacy would place you where you belong; in jail right along side the beneficiaries of your munificence.


  1. What’s really funny to me is that there is no way people on the so called Arab street think this is “torture” in every real Arab country..(yes everyone) there is massive “torture” in every prison. It is routine and expected. There very form of “justice” in most of the countries would be considered cruel and unusual here.

    Public beheading or hand chopping is a perfectly acceptable in many Arab countries and apparently in line with the teaching of their Holy Koran.
