sooner did 9-11 happen than the socialist elites in the
Hollywood far left began blaming the tragedy either on Israel (whom they
believed was attempting to frame the Arabs) or on the Bush Administration.
Many of the communist elites in Hollywood and New York believed that George
W. Bush had either orchestrated the disaster, or (like Wilson before the
U.S.S. Lusitania was sunk, or Franklin D. Roosevelt before Pearl Harbor
was attacked, knew the attack was imminent and did nothing in order to
justify an ill-advised attack on the Muslims in the Mideast for the express
purpose of stealing their oil, or to use a war to prop up a sagging economy
that went south only after Wall Street realized that an inept, unintelligent,
bumbling clown had somehow managed to steal the 2000 election from Vice
President Al Gore, Jr. (who actually did everything humanly possible for
36-days to steal the election from Texas governor George Bush.
The Gore Campaign tapped the Hollywood liberals
hard in 2000, just as the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and
the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee hit the purveyors of sin
and corruption hard in 2002. The religious harlots were at the gates of
Sodom and Gomorrah, and if the Republicans were not defeated, sex and
debauchery--the bedrock of all constitutional rights--would be abolished,
the right of women to kill their unborn children might be restricted,
and those condemned on death row not because they mercilessly killed their
victims, but because they are minorities who had mercilessly killed their
victims, might be executed before liberal justices reinterpreted the rule
of law, tempering it with social justice that tragically mitigates the
crimes of racial and ethnic minorities simply because they are disadvantaged,
or because they cant afford a Madison Avenue legal defense, arguing
that there are four times more blacks on death row than whites. (Skipped
in this equation is the fact that roughly 80% of all capital crimes in
America is committed by blacks. But, thats another story for another
Barbara Streisand, the aging diva of song
believes she is qualified to call herself an expert in the area of politics
because she donated over a half million dollars in 2000 to Democratic
candidates--most of it to Al Gore. And, that is what qualifies most Hollywood
types to shoot off their mouths...and what makes them think they know
what theyre talking about. All of them put their mouths where their
money went...into the back pockets of socialist politicians who dont
mind protecting sin and debauchery in exchange for the campaign contributions
they need to get re-elected.
Movie stars, stage actors, athletes, singers
and entertainers in general are viewed by the media as public figures.
And even though they put their pants on one leg at a time just like the
rest of us, they are accorded a special status that they simply dont
deserve. Common folks like you and me are supposed to look up to them,
all googly-eyed, when they tell us that moral values are obsolete, that
God does not exist, and that conservative politicians are destroying the
bedrock of both decency and democracy in America. But, until the sin-sucking
Hollywood crowd decided to attack President George W. Bush and the War
on Terrorism, the American people either believed them or tolerated them.
Now the American people are fighting back...and the Hollywood crowd is
shocked--and more than a little frightened.
Screen Actors Guild, which represents the Hollywood bunch was shocked
that the American people decided to fight back by boycotting unpatriotic
stars. This had never been done before. In the past, the Tinseltown
crowd used their vast financial resources and their personal charisma
with their fans to influence the outcome not only of pet issues, but even
national elections. When a popular movie star endorsed a particularly
bland, colorless, generally undeserving, socialist political candidate,
the candidate usually got elected. America loved the Tinseltown crowd
and obediently anointed their candidates with their votes.
the Dixie Chicks did their London concert in February, 2003, Natalie Maines
decided to give an interview to the London media. Because she is blonde
and stupid, Maines said: Now were standing on the brink of
war--brought here by the posturing of a marginally intelligent president
and a group of power-crazed manipulators with God knows what agenda.
Noting that the Dixie Chicks were from Texas, Maines added: Just
so you know, were ashamed the President of the United States is
Maines, and the Dixie Chicks discovered
upon their return to the United States that most Americans were ashamed
that the Dixie Chicks were from the United States. Most of them would
rather they go back to London even though British Prime Minister would
rather they go to France with actor Robert Altman who, when George W.
Bush was running against Al Gore, said that if Bush was elected, he was
moving to France. It would be a catastrophe for the world,
Altman said, if George Bush [was] elected. You wont see me
for dust. I for one will be leaving the country and living in France.
Dont we all wish? Of course, Alec
Baldwin was going to move to London. That didnt happen either. After
the election Altman said: This present government in America I just
find disgusting. The idea that George Bush could run a baseball team successfully--he
even speak! I just find him to be an embarrassment. I was over here (in
Europe--of course, thats where most of the Tinseltown lefties goes
to make their anti-American speeches)when the election was on and I couldnt
believe it...when the Supreme Court came in and turned out to be a totally
political animal, the last shred of naiveté that was left in me
has gone. When I see the American flag flying, its a joke.
Altman and the Hollywood liberal friends
are the joke--and the joke may finally be on them. America appears ready
to do what it should have done in 1954 when Senator Joe McCarthy was railroaded
out of office after he and Congressman Carroll Reece linked J.P. Morgan
& Company, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the Council on Foreign
Relations to the American Communist Party--run the commies out of the
United States. If the liberals want to support Saddam Hussein, let them
move to Baghdad. I understand the real estate is very cheap--if you can
find four walls and a roof. If the liberals believe the United Nations
should be the ultimate governing voice in what they plan to be a communist
world government, let them move to Brussels, Paris or Bonn, Germany..
was the fear of a new communist (or at least, a leftist) witch hunt that
led the Screen Actors Guild to go on the attack when angry conservative
Americans flooded Nashville radio station WKDF-FM demanding the station
pull all recordings by the Dixie Chicks, and threatening a boycott of
WKDF advertisers if any songs by the Dixie Chicks were aired.
The group released a statement saying that
...the anti-American sentiment [in London was] astounding.
I guess they felt America-bashing would give them points with the British
CD-buying market. Maines issued a separate statement in which she basically
gave American the index finger salute when she said, I
feel the President is ignoring the opinions of many in the United States,
and alienating the rest of the world. My comments were made in frustration,
and one of the privileges of being an American is you are free to voice
your own point of view.
SAG, in doing damage control for the liberals
who believe that freedom of speech means flag burning, the unbridled promotion
of pornography, and the right of homosexuals and lesbians to promote their
unsavory, illicit lifestyle in the public schools of America while denouncing
the right of students to carry a Bible into their classrooms as they are
being forced to learn the Quran, argued that ...it is the
fundamental right of citizens to express their support or their fears
and concerns. While passionate disagreement is to be expected in such
a debate, a disturbing trend has arisen in the dialogue. Some have recently
suggested that well-known individuals who express unacceptable views should
be punished by losing their right to work. This shocking development suggests
that the lessons of history have, for some, fallen on deaf ears...In that
spirit, the Screen Actors Guild Board of Directors, appreciating
the value of full and open debate and devoted to the belief that the free
flow of information, opinions and ideas contributes to the health of our
nation, supports the right of all citizens, celebrated and unknown, to
speak their minds freely, on any side of any issue, as is their Constitutional
right. In the same vein--and with a painfully clear appreciation of history--we
deplore the idea that those in the public eye should suffer professionally
for having the courage to give voice to their views. Even a hint of the
blacklist must never again be tolerated in this nation.
Clearly, the only blacklisting
that has surfaced this far is a very patriotic, very angry American public
that is making it very clear that if the movie stars and other entertainers
who have earned millions of dollars from American fans are ashamed to
call America home, they need to pack up and leave. China will likely welcome
them for political purposes. So will Saddam Hussein who desperately needs
human shields who dont mind being blown apart to protect Saddams
weapons of mass destruction. (They are even more welcome if they bring
their own body bags with them.) Of course, if theyre Jewish like
Babs Streisand (even if they believe the sun rises and falls on Yassar
Arafat), Saddam doesnt want to use them for cannon fodder. (Cant
have a Jew stealing 72 Muslim virgins.) France would probably welcome
them, providing they drink a lot of wine since the vineyards of France
have suddenly run onto hard times.
It is interesting that from the onset of
the Clinton years the Hollywood crowd has demanded the boycott of any
conservative organization that endorsed the funding of family values programs,
argued on behalf of the appointment of conservative judicial nominees,
advocated an end to abortion, wanted to strengthen Americas borders,
or denounced global
warming as the myth it is. Somehow, in their mind, it is okay to destroy
conservative businesses through liberal boycotts, but there is something
sinful about conservatives using the same tactics against liberals with
whom they vehemently disagree.
What is most shocking is that SAG, like
the liberal Hollywood idiots themselves, has been so isolated from real
America for so long, that they have no idea what patriotic idioms are
held by most Americans. They actually believe they determine what America
thinks because they have control of the magic media. They may have fooled
a good many Americans into believing they are alone in their belief that
homosexuals and lesbians are perverts; or that a majority of Americans
believe abortion is a sound, moral method for controlling a rampantly
out-of-control population when it is nothing more than the murder of unborn
babies. But America has not lost its patriotic
pride. Old men still choke up at sight of the American flag fluttering
in the morning breeze. Those who have served their nation by fighting
in the first Gulf War, in Somalia, in Panama, in Grenada, in Vietnam or
in Korea understand the horrors of war and know all too well that America
needs to step up to the plate one more time--this time to protect America
from Muslim extremists who are determined to destroy us because they believe
the free enterprise system is the worst evil in the world.
And, the communist-leaning leftists among
us--the Hollywood ingrates who dont appreciate the wealth that the
moviegoers in this free enterprise society have showered upon them by
attending their movies and buying their videos and DVDs, and the recording
artists who have used their artform as a method of protest since the 1960s
when the communist party took over the recording industry in the United
States--have used their celebrity status as a podium from which to denounce
everything noble, normal and patriotic about the nation which provided
them a bountiful livelihood.
It is time to call them to account.
Those like Alec Baldwin, Robert Altman,
Ani DiFranco, Jessica Lange, Natalie Maines, Sean Penn and others who
are embarrassed by their nation and wished they lived elsewhere, need
to move elsewhere.
Those like actress Whoopie Goldberg, who
told Bill Maher on his TV show, Politically Incorrect, that ...I
dont really view communism as a bad thing, explaining it is
the best form of government since she experienced it first hand when she
lived in East Germany, needs to go to a real communist country--like North
Korea and try starvation for a while.
When she was attending a film festival
in Spain in September, 2002, Jessica Lange declared to the media (not
realizing her words would follow her back to America): What
Bush intends to do with Iraq is unconstitutional, immoral and illegal.
I find it particularly reprehensible the way he acts like he was in a
western, intimidating the rest of the world. What can I say? I hate Bush.
I despise him and his entire administration. It makes me ashamed to come
from the United States. It is an embarrassing time to be an American.
It really is. It is humiliating. In my country, the atmosphere is poisoned.
Unbreathable for those of us who are not on the right. So thank you for
inviting me to this festival and allowing me to leave there for a few
Up and coming movie actor Edward
Norton, who apparently believes kissing the lower, rear faces of the two-faced
Tinseltown producers will enhance his career and get him more lucrative
parts in the future, found a liberal podium in England to denounce America.
Its nice being in Europe this week, he told the BBC,
Almost everyone in Germany and England is in sync with their governments.
I almost forgot what its like to be proud of my government.
Dustin Hoffman has had a distinguished
career in movies with roles like Ratso Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy, and as
the sexual neophyte in The Graduate. But he is also a dues-paying
liberal in Tinseltown. Like most liberals who believe terrorism is fine
(as long as its in someone elses backyard), but war is terrible
and should never be fought to end totalitarian or despotic regimes--unless
those regimes are friendly with the United States, when he was asked about
September 11 and the possibility that the United States might go to war
with Iraq, Hoffman said: For me, as an American, the most painful
aspect of this is that I believe [the Bush Administration] has taken the
events of 9-11 and has manipulated the grief of the country. And, I think
thats reprehensible.. If theyre saying its about the
fact they have biological weapons and might have nuclear weapons and that
gives us the liberty to preempt and strike because we think they might
hit us, then what prevents Pakistan from attacking India, what prevents
India from attacking Pakistan, what prevents us from going into North
Korea? I dont think, like many of us, that the reasons we have been
given for going to war are the honest reasons. I believe--though I may
be wrong because Im no expert--that this war is about what most
wars are about: hegemony, money, power and oil. Hoffman is right.
He is no expert. But, history confirms the fact that every war ever fought
was fought over hegemony, money and for both political and economic power.
World War I and World War II were instigated by global politicians and
transnational industrialists and bankers who wanted to create a global
nation without borders that hindered trade. In Korea, the communists above
the 38th parallel decided they wanted to entire peninsula. It was the
same in Vietnam. Today the instigators of war are Muslim terrorists who
have created a new form of warfare by engaging in a war against innocent,
unarmed people within the sovereign states they hope to overthrow through
Since the liberal believes the cause of
the terrorists is legitimate, the means they use to achieve their goals
are likewise justified. In this regard, Hoffmans comments about
Bush are unpatriotically misguided. Hoffman uses an argument that suggests
a nation cannot morally protect itself until it is attacked. If Saddam
has biological, chemical or nuclear weapons, and destroys Detroit, Chicago,
or New York, then we are justified in attacking him. But, until massive
amounts of Americans--apparently many more than 3,000--are killed, no
action by this government to preempt another strike against an American
city is justified in Hoffmans mind.
Ani DiFranco says Its
hard to stomach. Its hard to wake up every day with a feeling that
youre ashamed of your
country and then get out onstage and find something inspirational, something
hopeful...I have been attempting, through my work, to deal with it, but
sometimes I get a little lost. I love America. I hate the American government....The
government seems to be acting completely contrary to the will of the people
again and again and getting away with it. Everyone knows its a sham.
DiFranco probably understands, for the first
time since 1992, how 58% of the American people felt throughout the Clinton
years. Liberals like DiFranco who believe Clinton was elected by a popular
mandate dont realize that he was elected by a smaller percentage
of the voters in both 1992 and 1996 than George W. Bush was in 2000.
Chrissie Hynde, a member of the band
Pretenders, pretends she knows everything about politics.
She thinks she does because as a 60s Vietnam protester she witnessed the
shootings of the Kent State students by National Guardsman during the
anti-war riots at the Ohio University. She is as much a hate monger today
as she was then. Hynde generally uses her concerts as platforms for anti-American
speeches. During a concert in San Francisco on March 1, 2003, Hynde shouted:
Have we gone to war yet? We f***king deserve to get bombed. Bring
it on! Lets get rid of all the economic sh*t this country represents!
Bring it on! I hope the Muslims win! Does Hynde believe, under an
oppressive Muslim regime like the Taliban, that she would ever be allowed
the freedom to get up on a stage to perform--or even to speak? Of course
not. Shed be in a burqua, ten steps behind her husband--who would
likely beat her soundly before bed every night.
You might think that Michael Moore,
who is much farther to the left than Teddy Kennedy and more racist than
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton put together, discovered somewhere along
his journey to the left that he was the illegal offspring of Barney Franks
and Maxine Waters
from the rhetoric that spews from his lips. Even before the white ash
of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center had settled, Moore decided
that whomever blew up the World Trade Center did it to get back at Bush.
Many families, he said on September 11, have been devastated...This
just isnt right. They didnt deserve to die. If someone did
this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people
who did not vote for him. Boston, New York, DC, and the planes destination
of California--these were places that voted against Bush! Moore
is every bit as stupid as he looks in the photo on the left, if he really
believed the Muslims blew up the World Trade Center to personally get
back at Bush. In addition, his twisted view of the heroic action of Todd
Beamer, Mark Bingham, Edward Felt and Jeremy Glick on Flight 93 shows
an even more drastic lack of grey matter in the head. He declared that
The passengers were scaredy-cats because they were mostly white.
If the passengers had included black men, those killers with their puny
bodies and unimpressive small knives, would have been crushed by the dudes.
Moore also had unkind words for the President: You know [Bush is]
there illegally. You know he was not elected by the popular vote or by
the vote in Florida...We know all those facts and what Katherine Harris
did, and the private firm that took African Americans off the voting rolls
and prohibited them from voting. But Ive been surprised in this
first week how many average Americans were not aware of all the trickery
and deceit that took place in the year before the election to fix it for
George W. Bush. The governor who hired that private firm to
remove voters was Governor Lawton Chiles, Jeb Bushs Democratic predecessor.
The fraud Moore mentioned started
with political demographics consultant Bob Beckel who was hired to profile
the political leanings of every County Clerk in the nation so that those
who hired him would know which were conservative and which were liberal.
Only Beckel wasnt hired by Bush, he was hired by Gore. The data
was used the weekend before the election wherever it was beneficial to
the Democrats across the nation to bus homeless people, known felons,
college students (some registered to vote absentee ballots elsewhere and
some unregistered) to the County Clerks offices to register them
and allow them to cast absentee ballots in that jurisdiction. In every
instance, the weekend voting was illegal since voting registrations can
be recorded by the County Clerks during normal business hours. Over two
million Gore votes were cast during the weekend voting where voters
were paid for their votes with cigarettes or cash. Without those illegal
votes, Gore would have lost the popular vote as well as the election.
Furthermore, before noon on November 7,
the Democratic National Committee hired a telemarketing sales company
called Telequest to call every registered Democratic voter in Palm Beach
County and to suggest to them that the butterfly ballot used by the county
was confusing, and those who cast their ballots for Gore might have accidentally
voted for Pat Buchanan. Those paid calls by Telequest created the confusion
that started the Florida recounts. On November 8, the Gore team hired
Telequest to recall all of the Democratic voters in Palm Beach to fan
the fires of confusion even more by suggesting that initial tests suggested
that many Democrats did accidentally vote for Buchanan. Telequest asked
the voters, if they thought they may have accidentally voted for Buchanan,
to call the voting precinct and demand the right to re-vote. There were
no miscast ballots. The entire ballot flap was a ploy to achieve precisely
what Gore got--a recount that would allow him to manipulate the ballots
to steal enough votes to win. What the Gore people did, Moore gladly blamed
Actor Sean Penn is not much smarter
than Moore even though Moore was smart enough not to go to Iraq and become
a pawn of Saddam Hussein. Simply put, Penn said from an Iraqi
provided podium in Baghdad, if there is a war or continued sanctions
against Iraq, the blood of Americans and Iraqis alike will be on our hands.
My trip [to Iraq was] to personally record the human face of the Iraqi
people so that their blood--along with that of American soldiers--would
not be invisible on my own hands. His words aside, Penn came away
from Iraq believing Saddam had disarmed and had not weapons of mass destruction
because the Iraqis took him everywhere and he didnt see anything.
Penn should have stayed in Baghdad and offered himself as a human shield
to protect Saddams body with his own. That way, his Iraqi visit
would have been appreciated equally by Saddam and the American people
who feel it is time to disarm Saddam
Another American who would make an
ideal human shield is Woody Harrelson who played the likable bartender
on Cheers before firmly planting his roots in liberal Tinseltown. Harrelson
calls himself ...an American tired of lies. And, with our government,
it is mostly lies. In Harrelsons mind, he hasnt heard
any truth come out of Washington since Bill Clinton left office. Doesnt
that make you wonder how actors and actresses are smart enough to learn
their lines? Most apparently use the same old truth stretchers that Harrelson
used to spout fictitious facts about Iraq. Weve killed a million
Iraqis since the start of the Gulf War--mostly by blocking humanitarian
aid. The war against terrorism, Harrelson concluded, is terrorism.
The whole thing is just bullsht. I think Harrelson is confusing
the United States with Saddam, who wiped the Kurds twice during a decade:
once during the Iraq-Iran War in 1988 and again to put down a Kurdish
rebellion in 1998.
A good many of the liberal elite are just
anti-Republican, anti-family values, anti-conservative, or just anti-George
Bush because he, not Al Gore, was elected. Most of them have failed to
grasp the simple truth that by spending their free time (provided by the
largess of their American fans) denouncing George W. Bush, they are lending
aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States--Saddam Hussein. But,
frankly, none of them care.
When Bush failed in his efforts to align global support through the UN
to forcibly disarm Saddam, or if the Iraqi dictator successfully unleashes
a biological or chemical weapon against American troops, or if Bush is,
once again successfully pressured by the global community or by the Democrats
in Congress to end the war against Iraq without deposing Saddam Hussein,
Bush will be a one term president. That is what the Democrats and their
allies in Tinseltown want to happen--even if it means hundreds or thousands
of American soldiers die in Iraq. War is, after all, simply local politics
on a much larger global stage.
David Clennon who has found a degree
of popularity in a role on The Agency, is much more representative of
the loyalties found in the CIA in the Clinton years than the CIA depicted
in the popular Saturday evening CBS series. Clennon, who apparently believes
he is more than a mere actor earning a buck on TV, has become an anti-George
Bush advocate. Im saying that the moral climate within the
ruling class in this country is not that different from the moral climate
within the ruling class of Hitlers Germany. Im not comparing
Bush to Adolph Hitler--because George Bush, for one thing, is not as smart
People can get really vicious about
presidents they didnt vote for. Danny Glover is one such person.
Glover decided George W. Bush was a racist because the NAACP told him
Bush was. Yes, Glover insists, hes racist. We
all knew that (i.e., the African American community), but the world is
only finding it out now. As Texas governor, Bush led a penitentiary system
that executed more people than all the other U.S. states together.
That statement, of course, is not true. But it does make a powerful statement
to people who will not take the time to verify the truth of the statement.
Most of the people who died from [the] death penalty were African
Americans or Hispanics...Bush promoted a conservative program, designed
to eliminate everything Americans have accomplished so far in matters
of race and equality. Tragically, Glovers statement about
Bush was racist. But, under the rules of political correctness, a minority
cannot be construed as making a racial remark since he is a member of
a minority ethnic or racial group--but a white person pointing out that
a minority made a racist remark is usually construed to have made a racist
remark about the minority who made the racist statement. In the classification
of racism by the politically correct, only white males can be construed
Jennifer Aniston and her husband
Brad Pitt can be ugly when their candidate fails to steal an election.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, while flipping a double bird to show
her contempt for the President of the United States, Aniston said: Bush
is a f**king idiot. Then, talking about Bushs daughter, Jenna,
Aniston said: [Brad and I] would pass[Jenna] in the hall and Brad
would say, Heyyyy, Jenna, wanna beer? I got one in the truck!
Julia Roberts says ...Republican
comes in the dictionary just after reptile and just above repugnant.
Her view of Bush? Hes embarrassing. Hes not my president.
He will never be my president. Julia apparently prefers her presidents
who are more like the clientele she serviced in her role in Pretty
Woman. Betcha she liked Bill Clinton.
While in Finland on March 2, 2003,
singer Harry Belafonte told a local television station that US leaders
...are misguided. I think they know exactly what they are doing
I think that they are men who are possessed of evil. I dont think
George Bush...is a man of honor. I think he has a very selfish, arrogant
point of view. I think he is interested in power. I think he believes
his truth is the only truth, and that he will do what he wants to do despite
the people. Harry probably doesnt realize it, but the people
are represented by Congress, and Congress has given Bush the authority
to wage war against Iraq...thus, the people have given their President
authority to wage war against Saddam Hussein.
Talking about Colin Powell, Belafonte said: Theres an old
saying, in the days of slavery, that there were these slaves who lived
on the plantation and there were those slaves that lived in the [masters]
house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the
master exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin
Powells committed to come into the house of the master. When Colin
Powell dares to suggest something other than what the master wants to
hear, he will be turned back out to pasture.
Chicago star Richard
Gere does not see Saddam as a threatening sort of guy. Bushs
plans for war are a bizarre bad dream, Gere said, There doesnt
appear to be any sort of basis for any of this. Geres statement
may be based on the fact that the President chose not to take the actor
into his confidence. While Gere may believe he is the important characters
he plays on the silver screen, most Americans realize hes a make-believe
character without too many original thoughts of his own. I have
a feeling, Gere continued, something hidden is at work here
that will someday the light of day. I keep asking myself where all this
personal enmity between George Bush and Saddam Hussein came from...
Because he is a flaming liberal, Gere failed to notice the same enmity
between Bill Clinton and Saddam Hussein, or that Saddam hatched six different
plans to assassinate Clinton. Its like a story of Captain
Ahab and the great white whale from Moby Dick. We have to say stop, theres
no reason for war. At the moment, Hussein is not threatening anybody.
Itd be different if he was staring somebody down with a loaded gun
in his hand. But there doesnt seem to be any indication whatsoever
that this man poses an immediate threat to anybody.
From 1934 to 1939 when the League of Nations
played the same dangerous type of delaying chess game with Germany that
is now being played by the United Nations, Adolph Hitler armed his nation
for war as the other nations of Europe disarmed, believing the
world had achieved a state where nations could solve all of their differences
through arbitration. Once Germany was fully armed, war became inevitable
because Germany in 1939, like Iraq in 2003, was emboldened by the philosophical
division among his enemies on the continent. Efforts at peaceful conciliation
in the form of olive branches were offered by the British and the French
as first Austria and then Czechoslovakia were swallowed up by Hitler who
had an unquenchable appetite for land and a new territorial demand when
the previous demands were met. Convinced by their conciliatory gestures
that Europe feared him, Hitlers Panzer divisions and Luftwaffe invaded
Poland on September 1, 1939 and then swept across Europe. By April 9,
1940 Germany occupied
Denmark and invaded Norway, following on May 10 by their invasion of Belgium,
Luxemburg and the Netherlands. Germany entered Paris, with no resistance
from the French, on June 13. France surrendered with barely a whimper
on June 28, 1940.
Any student of history, or student of the
Iraqi leader, knows that Saddam Hussein sees himself as a modern day Nebuchadnezzar
who is destined to control the entire Arabian peninsula. Hitler saw himself
as a modern Napoleon. Gere could not have been more wrong in his assessment
of Iraqi strongman Saddam. But Geres rhetoric
was not based on political reality in the world, but rather on the typical
anti-capitalist, anti-free enterprise system spin that emanates from the
Tinseltown communists who no longer see themselves as reds
since in Tinseltowns politically-correct make-believe world, communism
no longer exists except in China, North Korea and Cuba.
Americas ugliest actress (who
would end up in a tie for first place with Janet Reno in an ugly woman
contest if one was ever held) Sandra Bernhard thinks shes one smart
chick. Im an intelligent person from America..Any thinking
person who lives in the world (where else would they live?) would be disturbed
at whats going on right now. I think Bush is amateurish and self-serving,
and frankly its disgusting. I think everyone is covering their asses with
the Enron scandal and it was very convenient that September 11 came along
to deflect the fact that they should never have been in the White House
in the first place. What happened in the election was completely corrupt.
Of course, I agree with Bernhard about the corruption in the Election
of 2000. And Al Gore should be required to stand trial for his attempt
to steal it.
The smart chick (not to be confused with
the equally biased Dixie Chicks) was asked what her IQ was. She replied:
I dont even know when you were supposed to be tested for it.
(Actually she received hers from her Maidenform. 34-Bummer! She admitted:
No, I dont know what my IQ is, but I am interested. I dont
know if I want to go through taking a big test though. In other
words, Sandra thinks someone should be able to tell her what her IQ is
based on her political wit. Being half-informed, I guess that makes her
a half-wit. Thats why she is recognized by the other half-wits in
the liberal community as an intellect when she spews pseudo-intellectual
dribble like: The infrastructure of America and the world is caving
in, and George Bush is a figurehead of that. I dont think hes
an informed person, or intelligent, or interesting. I think he got waylaid
into the job by his family, hes in over his head; and hes
kind of a dunce. Bernhard, with her high IQ, thinks
the sugar spun dribble that filters through Tinseltown somehow equates
with real news, and being the recipient of that liberal spin
somehow qualifies her to claim to be an informed person--but the President
of the United States, who possesses factual data of what is happening,
minute-by-minute behind closed doors around the world, is uninformed.
Yes, I can see how Sandra might think she is smart. She can accurately
disseminate the news from liberal Tinseltown gossip
and spin. Shes every bit as smart as she is pretty. Her mother and
father had to be doubly disappointed. They ended up with a baby girl that
was ugly enough to be a boy and dumb enough to be a doorknob.
Cher, the has-been singing diva from
the 1960s and 70s who has had more cosmetic surgery than Michael Jacksons
nose, has inserted her two cents worth as well. Has everyone lost
their f**king minds? Doesnt anyone remember the illustrious Reagan-Bush
years when people had no money and no jobs? (I think Cher, who is
now old enough to be feeling the first phases of Alzheimers--and almost
old enough for Social Security--is thinking of the Carter era when interest
rates skyrocketed to over 20% and global terrorism against the hated Americans
reached epidemic proportions.) I dont like Bush, she
said. I dont trust him. I dont like his record. Hes
stupid. Hes lazy. Some woman said to me she was voting for him because
she liked his dad. I said, Good...because thats what youre
getting. If somebodys claim to fame is that they signed a
law so that you can carry a gun to church--oh, give me a break.
Another well-informed liberal.
And, yes...unfortunately, heres another
Ed Harris who has played everything
from an astronaut in Apollo 13 to a single dad raising a son in Milk Money,
is a likable sort who enjoys a good stiff shot of booze with his politics.
Give Harris a script, and he can be just as articulate as the next guy.
But ask him a question, like what defines the measure of the man where
he doesnt have a script, he sounds as intelligent as Sandra Bernhard.
He doesnt like Bush because he doesnt think the President
qualifies as a man. I havent even been drinking... but...at
all...but, you know, being a man, Ive got to say that weve
got this guy in the White House who thinks hes a man, you know,
who projects himself as a man because he has a certain masculinity, and
hes a good old boy, and he used to drink. And he knows how to shoot
and gun and how to drive a pickup truck, et cetera, like that. Thats
not the definition of a man.
Give the man another drink. And give his movies a pass. Hes not
even smart enough to know when hes being used by the left.
A real arch liberal is silver screen
heart throb George Clooney who has never had a successful movie since
he left the NBC hit series ER, and he hasnt seen a conservative
he wasnt willing to attack to stay in the good graces of the celluloid
star-makers as he searches for another box office dud to enhance his career.
When it was announced that Charlton Heston was suffering from Alzheimers,
Clooney lampooned the former head of the Screen Actors Guild by
saying: Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering
from Alzheimers. When he was chastised for his callous remark, Clooney
said: I dont care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National
Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him. About
former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Clooney said he looks like a dinosaur.
The man, he said, has no arms. About Bush, Clooney
quipped, The problem is that we elected a manager. We need a leader.
Lets face it. Bush is dim. I believe he thinks [the war against
Iraq] is a war that can be won, but theres no such thing anymore.
We cant beat anyone anymore.
Clooney is still living in the Clinton era
when we sent the US Army into Somalia with sidearms to fight a heavily
armed warlord because our troops were on a peacekeeping mission
and Bill Clinton and Madeleine A;bright did not think they would look
too peaceful to the rest of the world if they were equipped as well as
the terrorists they were sent in to arrest. Clooney is another of the
Tinseltown crowd who needs a script to remember his own name. Defense
Secretary William Perry took the fall for Clintons Somalia debacle.
Clooney was right about one thing. Using UN rules of engagement, no modern
war can be won since it is the intent of the world body to maintain the
status quo--even when it comes to despots like Saddam Hussein and Osama
Writer Gore Vidal agrees with Clooney.
And, why not? Hes every bit as liberal. I dont see us
winning the war. We have made enemies of one billion Muslims. As dumb
as this administration is, they dont look ahead. They dont
know where any countries are...They dont really know much about
anything. Now you have people [in Washington, DC] who have no interest
in the country at all. Theyre interested in their companies, their
corporations grabbing Caspian Sea oil. One wonders if Gore Vidal
knows where any countries are, since Bush is targeting the Arabian peninsula
and Iraqi oil. The Caspian Sea is in Russian territory. The Baku oil fields
are in Georgia.
Actor Mike Ferrell, who had a recurring
role on M.A.S.H. apparently feels his role in a wartime TV comedy qualifies
him as an expert in warfare (an error most Tinseltown executives make,
since they believe if you are perceived to be an expert in something,
you are an expert. It is inappropriate for the Bush Administration
to trump up a case in which we are ballyhooed into war. Of course,
the scripted role he was given during the Clinton years was to champion
Clinton as the War President. The bottom line, he said at
that time, is that I think its appropriate for the international
community n situations like this to intervene [in Kosovo]. In this
case, the international community was helping Albanian Muslims steal the
mineral rich province of Kosovo from Yugoslavia. But as far as Ferrell
concerned, Bill Clinton was the good guy. I am in favor of intervention...
(Like his opinion meant anything to anyone.) ...On some level you
have to say that at least somebody (Bill Clinton) is doing something.
And, of course there is always Oliver
Stone who has an opinion on everything. Bin Laden is completely
protected by the oil companies in this country who told George Bush not
to go after him because it would piss off the Saudis. It might shock
Stone to learn that the Rockefellers, who own Standard Oil, Exxon, Mobil,
Chevron, Amoco, Texaco, Atlantic Richfield, Sunaco, Conoco, Sohio, British
Petroleum and a fair share of the smaller independent oil companies and
refineries--and a healthy interest in China Petroleum and the Russian
Caspian Sea oil ventures, recognizes the need to stamp out bin Laden and
al Qaeda because their brand of fundamentalistic Islam teaches hate and
violence and perpetuates generational terrorism and advocate precisely
that type of action on the part of the United States and its allies. Senator
Jay Rockefeller [D-WV], speaking on Fox News on Friday, March 14, outlined
precisely that type of scenario, adding that at the end of the conflict
the United States and its allies would have to dump billions of dollars
into the impoverished Muslim nations to eliminate poverty and, by doing
so, eliminate the Islamic practice of sending all Muslim boys 10-years
of age and older to the Tawhid schools which teach them to hate anyone
not Muslim. The curriculum in the Tawhid schools are written by the Wahhabis
clerics who issued the fatwahs that ordered the assassinations of the
Saudi royals for supporting the United States and helping America fight
al Qaeda. The scholastic syllabus of the Muslim extremists teach generational
hatred. It was that which Rockefeller said must be eliminated before real
peace in the Mideast can be achieved. We can therefore assume that Osama
bin Laden is not protected by American oil companies and, we can therefore
also assume that once again Oliver Stone doesnt know what hes
And, finally we have the queen bee
of modern liberal protest. No, this time around its not Hanoi Jane Fonda.
Fondas anti-American protest during the Vietnam era put her in good
standing with the American communists in Tinseltown who pose as caring,
benevolent humanitarians. But it did not put her in good standing with
the American movie-going public. Fondas movie career was pretty
much ended when she carried her antiwar protesting one step too far by
going to North Vietnam. If ever a Hollywood type gave aid and comfort
to the enemy and deserved to be tried for treason, it was Fonda.
Fonda mellowed after marrying CNN founder Ted Turner who, you will recall,
decided to gift the United Nations with a $15 billion grant over ten years
but defaulted when the empire he helped build began to crumble as Americans,
disgusted with his penchant for communism, renamed CNN the Communist News
Network and turned him off. Fonda claimed to have found Christ even though
her lifestyle and language do not testify to her newfound Christianity.
The new diva of the American communist movement
is actress Susan Sarandon. Like Fonda,
Sarandon is a pawn of the peacemongers who will always fight to protect
the existence of the most oppressive regimes
in the world. Saradon and her husband, actor Tim Robbins were deeply involved
with the Tinseltown communist sympathizers who created in the Palestinian
Liberation Front support organization, NOT IN MY NAME. NOT
IN MY NAME poses as an Israeli grassroots organization that is fighting
the policies of retaliation of the Israeli government. In reality, it
is an organization designed to undermine the Sharon government and force
Israel to surrender land to Yassar Arafat. After September 11, 2001, NOT
IN MY NAME (an organization initially funded by several Pro-Castro and
pro-communist organizations) began their anti-Bush, antiwar protests in
the United States as the American military launched catastrophic air strikes
against al Qaeda strongholds in Afghanistan, and in a matter of months,
toppled the Taliban, drove al Qaeda into hiding and established a parliamentary
government in Afghanistan.
Realizing that a blatantly pro-Palestinian organization (posing as a grassroots
Jewish organization) would not bode well arguing against an American-instigated
war with Iraq, the founders of NOT IN MY NAME (whose names--other than
Rita Laser, Noam Chomsky and Miles Solay--are concealed from public scrutiny)
decided to incorporate a new venture, called NOT IN OUR NAME.
Under the guise of NOT IN OUR NAME, the
Chomsky group, using Tinseltown celebrities as their mouthpieces, argued
that any war initiated against Iraq by George W. Bush would be an extension
of the war Daddy Bush lost to Saddam Hussein in 1991 (since Saddam remained
in power at the end of the Gulf War). By painting any new conflict with
Iraq as a personal sour grapes vendetta of Bushs against
Saddam, the celebs, like Susan
Sarandon and her husband Tim Robbins, Alec Baldwin, Woody Harrelson, Janeane
Garaofalo, Robert Altman and others could successfully argue that Bush
could not legitimately wage a new war in the name of the American people
since the American people had no vested interest in the Bush familys
personal feud with the Iraqi dictator.
Eager to show herself as a transnational
citizen of the world, Sarandon and her husband Tim Robbins became keynote
speakers in the pilot protest of the new organization in a Washington,
DC protest on October 6, 2002.
The NOT IN OUR NAME press releases, which
are posted on their website, www.notinourname.net,
detail the script that was used in the protest, but not the names of the
speakers who uttered them. Some of the comments are revealing. (The original
website is www.notinmyname.com. When
you click on the URL, it takes you to www.middleeast.org/mernew.htm.
We too watched with shock at the horrific
events of September 11, 2001. We too mourned the thousands of innocent
dead and shook our heads at the terrible scenes of carnage even
as we recalled similar scenes in Baghdad, Panama City, and, a generation
ago, Vietnam. (The liberals cant seem
to acknowledge the tragedy perpetuated against the American people without
attempting to justify as lawful the Muslims acts of
war and terrorism by mourning the deaths of our enemies.)
too joined the anguished questioning of millions of Americans who asked
why such a thing could happen. But the mourning had barely begun, when
the highest leaders of the land unleashed a spirit of revenge. (Once
again the Tinseltown crowd, while decrying the acts of terrorism that
scarred the face of New York and Washington, DC on September 11, 2001,
seemed to feel that the evil Satan called America, with its 200 million
common people, had a few thousand bodies to spare when the
maltreated Mideast Islamic terrorists decided to protest Americas
aiding the Jews in Israel, and the evil Satans attempt to force
its economic system on the world by killing innocent American men, women
and children.) They put out a simplistic script of good vs.
evil that was taken up by a pliant and intimidated media. They told us
that asking why these terrible events had happened verged on treason.
There was to be no debate. There were, by definition, no valid political
or moral questions. The only possible answer was to be war abroad and
repression at home.
In our name, the Bush Administration,
with near unanimity from Congress, not only attacked Afghanistan but arrogated
to itself and its allies the right to rain down military force
anywhere and anytime. (Tinseltown should realize
by this time that they are so far out of step with the rest of America
that nobody but the Sodomites do anything in their name. The policy now
embarked upon by the United States government has the support of 71% of
the people, so it is safe to say, that what Bush is doing is being done
in our names--at least, in the names of the 71% who wanted
Saddams regime out of power. Since Tinseltown has not owned
a president since January 20, 2001, I can see where they believe that
nothing the Bush Administration does is done in their name--it isnt.)
The brutal repercussions have been felt from the Philippines to
Palestine, where Israeli tanks and bulldozers have left a terrible trail
of death and destruction. The government now openly prepares to wage all-out
war on Iraq--a country which has no connection to the horror of September
11. (The links between bin Laden, al Qaeda
and both Saddam Hussein and Bashar Assad of Syria are blood trails that
have been clearly established in documents seized from captured al Qaeda
terrorists and confirmed by telephonic and electronic communications surveillance
recorded by the Echelon spy satellites.) What kind of world
will this become if the US government has a blank check to drop commandos,
assassins, and bombs wherever it wants?
In our name, within the US, the government
has created two classes of people: those to whom the basic rights of the
US legal system are at least promised, and those who now seem to have
no rights at all.
The government rounded up over 1,000
immigrants and detained them in secret and indefinitely. Hundreds have
been deported and hundreds of others still languish today in prison. This
smacks of the infamous concentration camps for Japanese-Americans in World
War 2. For the first time in decades, immigration procedures single out
certain nationalities for unequal treatment.
(While the Tinseltown crowd of pampered socialists and arrogant, spoiled,
and unbelievably ungrateful celebrities seem concerned that illegal Muslims
(who had overstayed their visas, or entered the country with forged documents,
or those will criminal records who bribed US Embassy officials in Saudi
Arabia to stamp their passports) were being deported, vacuum heads with
biotox injections in their wrinkles and saline implants in their breasts
seem oblivious of the fact that all of the 9-11 skyjackers were in the
United States on expired visas. Had the United States government cracked
down on all Muslim students with expired visas, and those carrying student
visas who had dropped out of college, none of the 9-11 skyjackers
would have been in the United States on September 11, 2001. That does
not mean that the Islamic extremists who planned the events of that day
would not have found American born or naturalized Islamic extremists they
could brainwash into becoming martyrs--or perhaps offer some of Tinseltowns
villains a role in the event.)
In our name, the government has brought
down a pall of repression over society. The Presidents spokesperson
warns people to watch what they say. Dissident artists, intellectuals,
and professors find their views distorted, attacked, and suppressed. The
so-called USA PATRIOT Act along with a host of similar measures
on the state level gives police sweeping new powers of search and
seizure, supervised if at all by secret proceedings before secret courts.
In our name, the executive has steadily usurped the roles and functions
of the other branches of government. Military tribunals with lax rules
of evidence and no right to appeal to the regular courts are put in place
by executive order. Groups are declared terrorist at the stroke
of a presidential pen.
It is interesting that when President Bill
Clinton was championing the Anti-Terrorist Act of 1995 that would have
usurped the Bill of Rights and specifically given him the power to declare
his political enemies on the right as terrorists, the Sodomites
in Tinseltown advocated that the oppressive measures in HR 666 be enacted.
Of course, with a friendly president in the White House, their extravagant
rights would not be infringed. While the patriot crowd--the flag-waving,
gun-totin far right--viewed the USA Patriot Act (and what appears
to be Patriot II in the wings) as a piece of legislation that would be
used to infringe on their rights, the hard left--the Tinseltown crowd--saw
it as a direct and very personal attempt by George W. Bush and Attorney
General John Ashcroft to very specifically silence them. The Tinseltown
crowd, according to the Wall Street Journal on March 13, 2003, has ...become
the most visible opponents of liberating Iraq. The conservative
media made up a Ten Most Dishonorable Americans list. Headling
the list were Danny Glover, Michael Moore and Oliver Stone.
What is most shocking about Tinseltowns
abject horror of war is that when Bill Clinton was president, he was far
less willing to seek approval from the United Nations before he started
bombing Serbia than Bush was in seeking an 18th UN resolution before drawing
his line in the sand over Iraq. Knowing Russia would veto any resolution
offered by the Clinton Administration, Clinton launched a marathon 77-day
bomb run over Serbia, blowing up, among other things, the Chinese Embassy
Clinton, playing the political cards dealt
to him by Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle and House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi, did the Clinton shuffle as only he could do it. In 1998,
speaking about Saddam Husseins dragging his heels about dismantling
his weapons of mass destruction, Clinton said: If Saddam fails to
comply, and we fail to act, or if we take some ambiguous third route which
gives him yet more opportunities to develop this program of weapons of
mass destruction...he will conclude that he can go right on and do more
to rebuild [his] arsenal of devastating destruction. And someday, some
way, I guarantee you--hell use the arsenal.
Today, Clinton, who eschewed the United
Nations when he wanted to bomb Belgrade, thinks George Bush was wrong,
and that he needed to seek the approval of the UN before committing the
United States to war. And today, Clinton is now not too sure that Saddam
has all of those weapons of mass destruction he knew the dictator had
in 1998 after he threw the UN weapons inspectors out of Iraq.
Lets make sure Gulf War II does not
require a sequel.
