History: Part III Defeating the Defeatists

Posted by Mark on February 2, 2005

Hat tip to Powerline for this, from Thomas Sowell.

Senator John Kerry loudly proclaimed on “Meet the Press” that the Iraqi election represented President Bush’s “last chance” to “get it right.” Nothing is easier than to demand more from somebody else — even when you yourself have been an obstacle to achieving what has already been achieved.

Senator Kerry has a long record as a defeatist and obstructionist. Back in 1971, he said, “we cannot fight communism all over the world” — adding in the same arrogant tone he uses today, “I think we should have learned that lesson by now.”

Ronald Reagan never learned that lesson — and hundreds of millions of human beings are free of communist tyranny today as a result. But during all the years when President Reagan was building up our military forces and our intelligence agencies, Senator Kerry was consistently voting against the appropriations required to do so.



This is most definitely the column I wish I had written. And, here from Dennis Prager, The Left is Worth Nothing. There is simply too much in this column to pull an excerpt. Read the whole thing. Then, if it makes you angry, read it again, slowly, and tell me where Dr. Prager has erred, if you can.

Anybody Hear From Michael Moore Since the Iraqi Elections?

Posted by Mark on February 2, 2005

Moore Watch is waiting….and waiting….and waiting to hear from Mr. Moore.

I find it telling that the man who has lamented such great concern for the kite-flying, tea-sipping Iraqi people featured in Fahrenheit 9-11 can’t be bothered to string together a few words of admiration for those same people who braved the threat of death to cast their votes this past weekend.

A while back, Moore declared:

“The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not ‘insurgents’ or ‘terrorists’ or ‘The Enemy.’ They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow—and they will win.”

It seems that Moore only admires the Iraqi people when they validate his agenda of hating George Bush. Now that they have embraced this ideal of democracy, he seems to have lost respect for them by failing to acknowledge their achievement. I think he’s taken this whole “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” concept a little over the edge. Given the oppportunity to applaud the Iraqi people for their brave embrace of the concept of self determination, the silence from Moore is deafening. The Iraqi voters, they are the revolution, their numbers grew, and they won. Moore’s contempt for Bush can’t take that away.

Perhaps he’s still in a funk from not getting any Academy Award Nominations.

Nothing from George Soros, either.

How about Jimmy Carter?

Cat got their tongue too?

Billionaire Bush-basher George Soros and left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore were among critics of the administration’s Iraq policy who had no comment after millions of Iraqis went to the polls in their nation’s first free elections in decades.

The Carter Center determined that the security situation in Iraq was going to be too dangerous to send election monitors, so the Atlanta-based human rights organization founded by former President Jimmy Carter posted its personnel in neighboring Jordan.

I’m sure we’ll hear from all of them the next time something bad happens in Iraq, or Afghanistan. For now, with so much good news coming out of both those new democracies, all Moore, Soros and the ex-President can do is sulk. Funny, that’s probably what the terrorists are doing too, when they aren’t taking action figures captive and threatening to behead them.

From the New York Times. Crisis Pregnancy Centers are getting sonogram machines, to allow women the chance to see and hear the heartbeats of the babies they are considering killing. The rate of women choosing to keep the baby jumps from 70% to 90%.

And who is against this? Planned Parenthood and NARAL, of course. There is an abortion industry out there, and that industry would be threatened if more women actually hear and see the child in their womb. Now, we can’t have that, now can we?
