Behar Wouldn't Know a Terrorist if One Blew Her Up

This ditsy Joy Behar woman from The View really needs to pull out a dictionary--or better yet, an encyclopedia and get caught up with intelligent folks.

She says Rush Limbaugh is a terrorist (but, I'd venture, doesn't see Barack Obama's domestic terrorist associate Bill Ayers as one).

She also fails to realize that Barack Obama's philosophies are far closer to communism than they are to capitalism or Americanism.

"He’s a terrorist. Rush Limbaugh is a terrorist. You heard it here ladies and gentlemen."

I actually disagree with Joy on this one. Rush Limbaugh is a cold, heartless sociopath who is poisoning America with his hateful, idiotic lies.

But a terrorist? Definately not. :)

If you are gonna always label Barack Obama with Ayers, then label John Mccain with G Gordon Liddy.

Okay.

If I had to pick, I'd take a politically-motivated burglar over a terrorist who hates my country any day.

As long as we're playing the guilt by association game...

Bob, did you support Donald Rumsfeld? That photo of him shaking hands with Saddam Hussein in the 1980s obviously means that he's a genocidal, freedom-hating dictator (which ironically, isn't too far from the truth).

And as for Rush Limbaugh, do you agree with him that Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama is "totally about race"? Isn't an accusation like that just as racist?

Bob Ellis said...

I'm telling you, cinemaphile85, you really need to invest in some good books.

Iraq was an ally back in the 1980s; we had a common enemy in Iran. Unfortunately, Saddam proved himself to be untrustworthy as well. Have you ever had a friend or ally turn on you? It happens.

I think Powell's endorsement of Obama is largely about race; Limbaugh did have a good point when he asked something to the effect of where's the list of all the unqualified white guys Powell has endorsed.

If the accusation had been based on animosity toward Powell's or Obama's race, it would have been racist. Limbaugh is clearly not a racist, and this comment was clearly about qualifications, so it is clearly not a racist comment.

I know that Iraq was our ally in the '80s. I was just illustrating the stupidity of saying that having a working relationship with a domestic terrorist or a criminal or a dictator automatically means that you are one too. McCain knows he's going to lose, so he's throwing out crap like this - rather, getting his puppet Palin to do his dirty work, since people are less likely to criticize a woman for fear of appearing sexist (yet another reason why his VP choice was based mostly on politics). That, along with McCain's most recent warning that "if we elect Obama, al Qaeda will attack us again to test him," shows that he's starting to peter out. When you can't make yourself look good, might as well make the opponent look bad and scare the populace into voting for you by default.

As for Limbaugh's comment, an accusation needn't be hostile to qualify as racist. All it takes is a prejudicial opinion about someone guided by nothing other than his or her skin color, which is what Limbaugh's comment is. In Powell's opinion, Obama is NOT unqualified, so naturally he would not give a list of unqualified white politicians whom he endorses.

Bob Ellis said...

See, you've illustrated the truth of what I've been saying.

People with a moral compass abandon alliances and associations when it becomes apparent that those alliances are with evil people. Folks like Obama who have no moral center just keep on associating with them until the truth comes out and they catch too much flack for it.

Obama is profoundly unqualified, not just in his experience level but in his understanding of world events, international dynamics, and--most of all--a fundamental lack of understanding of the nature of evil. You don't coddle evil, you don't buddy-buddy with evil, you don't appease evil, you don't negotiate with evil--you DEFEAT IT.

As a military man, Powell should understand this...if his ethnic allegiance didn't get in the way.

Umm...I think it was Biden who said that about Obama being tested by our enemies. Facts can sure be a nuisance sometimes, can't they?

Mr. Ellis,

Do you think this "war on terror" is something that we can win? How exactly do you defeat an idea? Walk me through your strategy.

Bob Ellis said...

Simple. We fight them the way we used to fight wars before we lost our moral center.

We fight them until they are all dead or until they give up.

Then we win.

Simple.
