It is not everyday that I agree with something from that Marxist rag. But, I suppose a broken clock is right once a day, at least.
Frank Bruni writing over at the New York Times about the events of the two days and the political idiocy that has followed says:
Can’t we wait until we’ve resolved the body count? Until the identities of all of the victims have been determined and their families informed? Until the sirens stop wailing? Until the blood is dry?
Or must we instantly bootstrap obliquely related agendas and utterly unconnected grievances to the carnage in Paris, responding to it with an unsavory opportunism instead of a respectful grief?
This has been my thoughts too. It happens every damned time one of these tragic events happens. Both sides start carping about the politics of it. I mean, just for damned once, can we please stop making a tragic event about politics? Yes, I know, the shooters were Muslim.
However, what the neocon/conservative/Republican bloggers and media talking heads — fail to acknowledge is, that if George W. Bush had not invaded Iraq, based upon faulty intelligence or Bush’s lust for war — pick one; those 129 people in France would still be alive and the 352 people would not be in the hospital fighting for their lives.
It is much too bad that the douche canoes like Power Line, Instapundit and Diary of a Mad Voter (Roger L. Simon) do not understand that concept. I mean, at least give the damned bodies a chance to be buried and give the damn French a chance to grieve, before making political statements or opinions. I know, I am just as guilty as anyone.
It is not just the right, the damned left does it too. As Mr. Bruni points out, terrorism due to climate change? Oh brother. Between that and the idiotic nonsense that I wrote about here; I am sure that the progressive movement has lost its ever-loving mind.
As Patrick J. Buchanan has pointed out, we have two political parties in this Country; The Stupid Party and The War Party. Allow me to change that one, if I may. We have two political parties: The Stupid Party (left) and the Stupid War Party (right). This above is proof of that.
