Leftist Media Gets Tough Against ‘Terrorists’
Every word deserves my emphasis:
I have seen the light. After all these years, I now agree that it’s fruitless to give the benefit of the doubt to people who are so obviously corrupt, so clearly malevolent, so bent on hurting innocent people for their own sick gain.No more due process in the clear-cut case of insidious terrorism. When the facts are so clearly before all Americans, for the whole world to see, why bother with this country’s odious and cumbersome system of justice? Send the guilty monsters directly to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in their own mental squalor.
So, about whom is this leftist columnist, Dave Perry, writing? Homegrown Islamic terrorists? Al Qaeda? HAMAS? Radicalized American Muslims who kill their children for becoming ‘too Western’? Unidicted co-conspirators who fund Jihadists? Fans of Anwar al-Awlaki who plot to kill Americans? Mosque leaders who preach violence against defenseless civilians?
No, Dave isn’t writing about any of those. He is writing that about me. And about you. And about anyone who supports and defends the 2nd Amendment. He is writing about NRA members. He wants to imprison us, without due process or trial, for no other reason than the fact we exercise our Constitutional rights.
We are the worse the left can imagine. We are the terrorists in their mind, in Dave’s mind.
Our insistence on legally owning weapons is worse than flying planes into buildings or blowing the legs off innocent people during a marathon. Teaching our children how to properly handle a rifle is worse than killing our children for not wearing a headscarf. Arming our women to defend themselves against rape or violence is worse than enslaving them, than taking away their identity and their dignity, than reducing them to incubators to be discarded when no longer useful. Teaching our loved ones to stay alive and to survive is worse than teaching them to martyr themselves while killing civilians. Self-reliance and freedom is worse than subjugation and oppression.
To leftists like Dave, war criminals in Guantanamo Bay deserve all rights afforded to citizens, but we NRA members should be rounded up and sent to concentration camps without due process. We should be in prison and left to die never again seeing the light of day, while perpetrators of Islamic terrorism live free.
This article is an insight into the mind of the left. To them, the real terrorists are those who stand up to tyranny. To them, the least deserving of Americans are the ones most willing to fight for our rights. To them, the biggest threat to their American utopia are those who wish to preserve American values.
