Islamism with a Smiley Face
No Shame

Unhinged Unanimous

John Hawkins posts The 3rd Annual 10 Worst Quotes From The Democratic Underground For 2005. I find this one to be rich:

"no pride-- we should be ashamed of what they've (the troops in Iraq have) done...in our names, not proud of them. They've served as thugs and enforcers for a corrupt foreign policy. They've helped shatter a country already brought to it's knees by ten years of draconian sanctions and an invasion premised upon bald-faced lies. The've participated in a war of aggression that mocks international law. They've murdered untold numbers of innocent civilians. Their occupation has created an insurgency that threatens to consume Iraq in civil war, and causes the deaths of additional innocents. They have destroyed homes and lives for no good purpose whatsoever.

I am deeply ashamed of them. There is nothing noble about what they've done in Iraq. They have not served or defended us-- they served fascism.

To those who inevitably argue that they had no choice but to commit these crimes, consider that this circumstance neither exonerates them under law, nor makes their actions admirable. Only blind alliegence-- the act of being a "good German"-- can raise pride in what they've done in Iraq."

[Emphasis mine]

The Iraqis voted on three different occasions in 2005, thanks to the US Armed Forces. How is that not noble? How is that equivalent to serving fascism?

I read somewhere that fascism is whatever these idiots don't agree with. That seems about right.
