If We're Evil, What Are they? – From My Vault
The following is my syndicated article from April 27, 2004. If you replace John Kerry being referenced as president and insert Obama’s name the article would be as accurate as if it had been written this morning.
John Kerry, Al Gore, Michael Moore, the elite wealthy liberal “We hate America legions” and the radical Muslims are never at a loss to tell us how evil we Americans are.
They ridicule and hate us for being individually fortunate enough to have gained a modicum of success and daring to enjoy it or even more diabolical in their minds desiring to keep it. But what does this say to Americans?
One would think it would raise the question of how countries producing gazillions of barrels of oil could have populations dying from malnutrition? I think one would wonder why it is that as Americans we are always the blame for all that is wrong elsewhere, while bloodthirsty Palestinians other terrorists around the world get a pass.
One might wonder why it is that while our school taxes, property taxes, health insurance, groceries and gas continue to increase, yet we are supposed to feel guilty because a despot that relieves himself in gold toilets allows the people in his country to go without the basic needs of life.
If I were just a “go to work and come home guy” like my family as I was growing up, I would wonder why I should give one thought that some misguided Muslim or Palestinian teenager cared so little about life that he was willing to strap a backpack of explosives to himself and blow up a school bus of children.
Why should I spend one moment caring that Israel exterminated a rat, his bodyguard and terrorist son in training? Americans might question why with yard work to do, graduations and college to pay for – not to mention routine financial obligations – they should care if they all blew themselves to dust? No doubt the world would be better off with a few less terrorists who blame Jews and Americans for every atrocity they themselves personally commit.
Tell me why I should care that despotic families who are making billions of dollars from oil – and tens of millions of dollars from Americans by way of the United Nations and U.S. government giveaway plans – yet are starving and oppressing their people (apart from the fact that tax money is being forcibly taken from me under threat of penalty and given to megalomaniacs with palatial palaces).
I go to work each day, pay my bills, take care of my family, coach Little League, volunteer at the local whatever to support whatever, and I’m the bad, evil American according to Kerry, Gore and Moore. I’m evil because I drive an SUV, while they travel in luxurious private jets, own tens of millions of dollars worth of homes around the country and in France. Yet we ordinary Americans – who go to work and enjoy their families and are somehow responsible for a despot who lives in caves and has decided to call for our extermination – must be concerned because this dysfunctional reprobate says we are evil?
The truth is however, we do care. And many Americans give from that which they cannot afford to help others. Personally, I don’t believe we should spend one dime to help the starving in another country when they are starving purely because of tyrannical despots, not because of plague or famine.
Personally, I don’t feel uncomfortable with Israel defending herself from Hamas. Personally I wouldn’t object to America dropping a few M.O.A.B.s (Massive Ordinance Air Bombs) on the suspected area of Osama bin “Cave Dweller” and be done with it.
Truth be told most of America feels the same way. But unlike those in that portion of the world, we’re not the animals. We may think something, but we will still sacrifice to help others. We may not like what’s going on over there, but we are willing to give aid to their oil-rich starving people, while they murder our children, mates and burn our flag.
We don’t have to like or agree with fanatical ideologies, but that doesn’t mean we won’t give our dollars, food and blood (literally) to help people whose country has the means to provide but doesn’t.
My point being, we don’t need Michael Moore, Al Gore John Kerry or Muslims to tell us how bad we are. John Kerry is running for president – when will he start telling us how great America is and how bad the terrorists are?
And shouldn’t someone ask him how many Muslims and Palestinians sent money to Sept. 11 funds for families who lost loved ones? Maybe they could have taken it out of the money they received for having their children detonate themselves.
