There really are only two liberals worthy of respect [Reader Post]

Ironically, that would be Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. Say what you want about them, but they are consistent.

We live in a Bizarro world at the moment. Good is bad, down is up and night is day. The Obama zombie supporters voted for a candidate who was against rendition, warrantless wiretapping, indefinite detention, black prisons and military tribunals and they have gotten the diametric opposite. They now applaud him and themselves, covered in the slime of their denials that all the infrastructure leading to the death of Osama Bin Laden was set in place by George W. Bush and that, from a foreign policy perspective, Barack Obama has become Barack Bush.

There is one sentence in this report that reall explains it all

For the past two years, American spies had been monitoring the courier, known as Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, after learning his name four years ago, according to US officials.

They learned his name four years ago, as in George W. Bush was President. They had to wait four years for him to make a mistake.

When al-Kuwaiti made a phone call in 2010, he unknowingly led the Americans to the doorstep of the world’s most wanted terrorist. He was said to have been among those killed alongside Osama bin Laden in yesterday’s dramatic raid.

And it was during the Bush Presidency that Al Kuwaiti’s value was learned:

The CIA gained crucial information confirming the role of al-Kuwaiti from two inmates at Guantanamo Bay – Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Faraj al-Libi.

But at the moment virtually all liberals gush with adoration for Obama, with a couple of notable exceptions.

Michael Moore disapproves of the killing of Bin Laden:

Film director Michael Moore, in an exclusive interview Wednesday with The Wrap, said Osama bin Laden wasn’t killed, but executed. “Common sense tells you he was executed. That was the plan all along. Just tell us that and quit treating us like children,” Moore told The Wrap’s Brent Lang. “I have a lot of faith in Obama, but we’ve received three different stories in three days. We heard, ‘There was a firefight.’ ‘He used a woman as a shield.’ Now it turns out none of these things were true. He wasn’t armed.”

Moore says something was lost in the process of killing Bin Laden

“We’ve lost something of our soul here in this country…something that separates us from other parts, other countries where we say everybody has their day in court no matter how bad of a person, no matter what piece of scum they are, they have a right to a trial…after World War II, we just didn’t go in and put a bullet to the head of all the top Nazis. We put them on trial.”

And if you were against a trial for Bin Laden?

He said people who did not want a trial for Bin Laden were “saying that you hate being an American. You hate what we stand for, you hate what our constitution stands for. We stand for something different than that and we’re better than them.”


The other liberal worthy of your respect is Rosie O’Donnell. She was unhappy that Bin Laden did not get a trial.

Why is it, if people question whether or not filming Americans in the streets chanting ‘USA!’ and a lot of the coverage of the White House protesters [sic] seemed to be drunken fraternity boys, why this is in some way determined to make you un-American if you don’t support that. You can be happy for the death of the person because he no longer walks the Earth. That he quote-unquote ‘didn’t deserve to live.’

You can also be upset about the fact that he didn’t have due process, that he didn’t get tried, that he wasn’t brought to The Hague for war-crime tribunal [sic].


Many, many people, including now on the Twitter feed say, ‘Now, Rosie, it was illegal for them to fly planes into the Twin Towers.’ I’m fully aware of that. Because other people are capable of criminal acts on our soil doesn’t equate to ‘therefore, we are allowed to do criminal acts on their soil.’

America has always been the beacon of light and hope for the world, right? We’re supposed to be the leader in terms of our morality and our democracy and our fairness, right, so saying the reason that it’s all right for us to do that is ‘look what they did to us,’ well, that does not equate, because you don’t want to become what you loathe. Wasn’t the whole point of this is that we are not monsters?

I now have a grudging respect for these two in spite of how repulsive I otherwise find them. They, unlike virtually all other Obamatons, remain true to their core values.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Say what you want, but you make a good point. I’ve used in the past people like Adlai Stevenson and Paul Simon as examples of that kind of fortitude. Never agreed with them, but they also never budged from their principles as the RINO scum and most of the political elite so commonly does. Good post. One should always remember not only the people might differ with you opinion wise, but it is always good to know your enemy and in fairness to the both (Garfolo also comes to mind. sorry if I spelled it wrong) they do in fact make that easy!

    I’ve been wondering for a couple of days what might cause a conservative like Minnesota’s Matt Dean to launch a totally unprovoked personal attack on a thoroughly likeable fellow such as Neil Gaiman, who isn’t and never has been particularly political, and who’s surely one of the state’s serious creative assets. (Not to mention a serious contributor of tax dollars.) Conservatives, for some reason, seem more likely of late to elect people who are total jackasses. That’s the only explanation I can come up with.

    Gaiman’s fee–an amount that someone of his stature can routinely command for a large speaking engagement–was donated to charity shortly after it was paid–as Gaiman has very often done over the years.

    Perhaps it would be helpful if more conservative politicians had mothers like Dean’s, willing to box their boy’s ears when they get out of line and behave like twits.

    There’s obviously an automatic tendency to make things personal these days. Maybe it’s a good idea to find out a little something about the person in question before doing so.

    Have to agree with the concept of the article. I can’t stand either, but they are consistent. Yes, the Nazis had their Nuremberg trials–why not some military trials here, after months of interrogation. Why would we waste such an asset. No need to kill the man. the Navy Seals could have dispatched any opposition easily. No need to dump his body in the ocean and then refuse to show the pictures to the American public. Something is very wrong here, all the way around. A lot could have been gained just “parading” him in front of the world.

    As for not putting a “bullet in the heads of the nazis after the war”, but on trial. Well that was then, and this is now.Back at the end of WWII we had a few people like Moore, and company but they were on the fringes of the lunatic fringe. Thanks God! Or else more of the nazi criminals would have gotten away with their crimes. People like Moore and Rosie would have been laughed out-of-town, or tarred and feathered, and then rode out-of-town on a jackass. Second too many Nazis did escape justice by making deals with the American, British, Russia, etc.. governments. Using that all time politician favorite, “a few must suffer so the majority can prosper.” Talking about the millions of people murdered by the Nazis. And all the knowledge we would gain by letting the scumbags live and work for us.Rosie and Moore are angry that they will not have the opportunity to take their rabid and insane supporters out into the streets and protest how unfairly Bin laden was being treated at Gitmo. While the ACLU, and their ilk would have the courts tied up in knots for years over the trial of Bin Laden. Just like they have successfully done with the terrorists at Gitmo for the past years.
    In short Rosie and Moore are only using the “lack of a trial” to hide their rage, and anger at not being able to hurt this nation even more than they have. They and their kind are lucky that we are still not like we were in WWII, they would all be making little rocks out of big rocks now for treason, and helping the enemy. But yes they are consistent. But are still hiding their motives.
