Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Audacity defined

“Hypocrisy” doesn’t even do the word justice. From Boston’s online fishwrap:

Cuba characterized American filmmaker Michael Moore as a victim of censorship and the U.S. trade embargo as it reported Friday on a U.S. Treasury Department probe of his March visit here for his upcoming health-care documentary, “Sicko.”

Moore took the trip, for a segment in the film, with about 10 ailing workers involved in the rescue effort at the World Trade Center ruins.

The Communist Party daily Granma called the 45-year-old U.S. travel and trade sanctions “a criminal action that has cost lives and grave consequences for the inhabitants of the island,” as well as Americans.

“Any resemblance to McCarthyism is no coincidence,” the newspaper opined, referring to the political witch hunt that U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy carried out against suspected American communists in the 1950s.

The U.S. government’s targeting of Moore “confirms the imperial philosophy of censorship” by American officials, it added.

Cuba. Decrying censorship and McCarthyism. Man, does that Castro dude have a wicked sense of humor or what? I may have just officially seen it all.

P.C. almost allowed Fort Dix Six to carry out jihadist plot

From the NY Post:

It all began on a frigid January day with 10 bearded Muslim men huddled in the parking lot of a Circuit City debating who would go inside to have a copy made of a tape showing them firing guns and praising jihad.

Eventually, the group – who’d been seen standing outside earlier that January 2006 week – selected two men to go inside while the rest waited in the parking lot, an employee who was outside smoking at the time recalled.

Once inside, the two men approached the television section of the electronics store where videos could be transferred to DVD and copies could be made.

They handed the teenage clerk a mini-cassette tape from a camcorder and asked for a $20 transfer to be made to DVD. As they waited, the two men calmly walked around the store looking at televisions, video games and DVDs.

What they didn’t know was that they had sealed their ultimate fate.

When the teen and another employee went into a back room and began the conversion of the tape, they saw a group of bearded men wearing “fundamentalist attire” and shooting “big, f-ing guns,” the teen later told co-workers.

Throughout the 90-minute-long tape, above the booming gunfire at a Pennsylvania target range, the jihadists could be heard screaming “God is great!”

The two employees “freaked out,” their co-worker recalled.

At first, the teenage clerk didn’t know what to do, his pal said.

“Dude, I just saw some really weird s-,” he frantically told his co-worker. “I don’t know what to do. Should I call someone or is that being racist?

Way to go, leftards. You have succeeded in making astute citizen observers second-guess themselves in assisting counterterrorism efforts. This young man’s common sense prevailed, but he hesitated…and that tells me that other people might have been inclined to keep their mouths shut.

I’ve said for some time that political correctness could be the death of us yet. I didn’t go out on a limb with that prediction, now did I?

Al Qaeda cites Democrats as allies

Well, at least we know who Al Qaeda likes. But don’t think the Dems are soft on security or anything, just because the AQ camelhumpers like them! From Ace:

Above the Fold Update: Al Qaeda knows who its allies are.

Mohamad al-Janabi, a reputed al-Qaeda member in the nearby city of Salman Pak, said in a interview that he was unable to contact his comrades in Mahmudiyah to determine whether they were responsible for the attack.

But he added: “I can assure you that we will start pressuring Bush in a new way at the same time he is facing pressures from the Democrats and the American people. And there will be no problem to sacrifice 10 soldiers in order to abduct a single American soldier and get him on television screens begging for us to release him.”

Notice Al Qaeda is not pressuring us to stay, which is odd, because I keep being told that Al Qaeda loves having American troops in Iraq and Bush is “playing right into their hands.”

I don’t think this is going to have the effect Al Qaeda seeks. It’s getting harder and harder for the media to pretend that Al Qaeda isn’t the major source of violence and terrorism in Iraq — and the biggest cause of US troop deaths — and they’re going to have a hard time avoiding using the words “Al Qaeda” when they run these tapes.

Question: Would these tapes be considered a “coordinated” media buy for the Democrats under McCain-Feingold? Will the FEC investigate?

Maybe that’s the way to get the media remotely perturbed at Al Qaeda — we can sell them on the idea that “Al Qaeda is swift-boating Iraq.” They really do seem to despise “swift-boating.”

Carbon debits?

We all know what a sham carbon indulgences…er, “offsets”/”credits”…are by now. Well, how about “carbon credits”? From Moonbattery:

Are you annoyed at the way high-profile indulgers in conspicuous energy consumption like Al Gore attempt to exempt themselves from the sacrifices they demand of everyone else by purchasing phony carbon credits? Don’t just grouse — do something about it. Counteract the carbon credits with carbon debits at CarbonCreditKillers.com.

Carbon debits can be purchased for as little as $5. With each carbon debit, CarbonCreditKillers.com will shred one living tree, send an email informing Al Gore, and send another to you certifying that you have done your part to put an end to the carbon credits scam.

Various packages feature extras like having “I Took Away Your Carbon Credits” plaques sent to liberal friends. Those willing to spring for the Premier Carbon Debit Vacation Package get the following:

Airfare to Arizona from any continental US state.

  • 1 day of carbon debiting using their tree-crushing FECON grinding head tractor — an average of 100 trees debited in a day.
  • 1 “My Carbon Footprint Is Bigger Than Yours” t-shirt with an imprint of you in the seat of the tree-killer.
  • 1 “Carbon Debit Gold Star Member” plaque.
  • 1 “I Took Away Your Carbon Credits” plaque sent to Al Gore.
  • 1 “I Increased My Carbon Footprint” t-shirt.

    CarbonCreditKillers.com can’t guarantee they are actually harming the environment, since the trees are apparently slated for removal anyway, but they do promise that trees will be destroyed at your expense — which is more of a guarantee than gullible moonbats are getting from swindlers like TerraPass.

  • I abso-freakin’-lutely love it! I wish I had thought of it!
