The torrent of invective pouring from the mouths of the left directed toward President Bush in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is startling in its ferocity. The speed and eagerness that they have jumped down the President’s throat makes one question whether any spark of human decency exists among people who see political gain to be had from a disaster where thousands of dead bodies lie floating amidst the flotsam and jetsam of Katrina’s wake.
They are cheering on the looters. They are pushing pet leftist agenda items like global warming. They are railing against the war by blaming the President for taking National Guard units away from states affected by the disaster. Any and all political openings they either sense or imagine are being shamelessly exploited.
It’s enough to make decent people vomit.
I frankly don’t have the words to describe the utter contempt I hold for these leftist lickspittles. There is nothing they can say or do at this point that will convince me that their criticisms directed toward Republicans, the right, and the President is in the best interests of the people affected or of the United States. It is nothing more than pure, unadulterated politics. They seek to gain a political advantage on the the backs of the dead bodies of their fellow citizens. They are using the suffering of the living to tear down the President in time of crisis.
There are times – this is one of them – where I almost wish we could accommodate the left’s fantasy by tearing up the constitution and putting them in concentration camps. They’ve been screaming so long that the day is coming when Bush will become a dictator and stifle their dissent that it becomes more and more tempting to make their ridiculous paranoia a reality. Along with the “imminent military draft,” stolen elections, and other idiotic fancies, there has never been a group so divorced from reality, so mired in hubris and contempt for the intelligence of their fellow citizens, in the history of the United States.
Their descent into hell is complete. Let’s all throw another log on the fire and participate in their total damnation.
