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.
