so is bush hitler or vader?

From NRO via John Hawkins:

Reesa Rosenberg, a Muslim from New Jersey, came to the nation's capital bearing a sign that read "Bush Is the Real Terrorist." "When it comes down to it, it's all for oil and global domination," she believes. "It's almost like Hitler." Rosenberg contends that people in the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks. "Another thing about 9/11 the United States is like a stuck-up little bitch. They just do and take all of what they please. I mean, 9/11 was terrible, but it was the first terrorist attack on this country. It's like, 'oh, no!' Somebody broke the United States' nail, now the whole earth is going to blow up."

I was going to write a long response to this, but I don't even know what to say to someone who thinks like that.

It is not being isolationist or selfish to feel horror over what happened on that day. To compare it to breaking a nail - let's just say that if I had been in earshot of Ms. Rosenberg when she uttered that idiocy, I would have decked her.

Of course, the tin foil hat crowd was out in full force, too:

Bush "definitely knew in advance," remarked John Bostrom, who traveled to the march from Staten Island. "It was like when Hitler burned down the Reichstag." Why would the Bush administration refuse to act on its prior knowledge of the terrorist attacks? "What they want to do, basically, is build a worldwide planetary death machine that's technology driven, computer run, and hooked up to satellites that cover every square inch of the globe, and allows them to target and eliminate anything they want to wherever they want to," maintained Bostrom. "This is their plan. It's black and white. That's what they've been calling for. That's their strategy and they're obsessed by it."

Been there, done that, Mr. Bostrom. It's called a Death Star and Darth Vader showed exactly how it's done. First Iraq, next stop, Aalderan!

A table display exhorting passersby to defend North Korea's right to nuclear weapons or an activist who cheered in vain for a policeman to fall off a fire-escape ladder 30-feet above a Pennsylvania Avenue restaurant were typical of the happenings at this weekend's rally cast aside by too many reporters covering the demonstration.

Peace activists, my ass. They are nothing but a bunch of selfish, whiny, misguided, misled people who hate the country that they live in. I hear France is nice this time of year, guys. Why don't you head over there where your hate and rhetoric, your anti-semitims and hyperbole can really be appreciated? They hate America, too.

Oh, wait. That's Amerikka, right?

Idiots.

These people are contemptible. Smug, self-righteous, stuffed to the gills with their own sense of superiority... they aren't worth the cost of the powder to blow them to Kingdom Come.

These are the same people who were supporting the Soviet Communists, even though they killed 10's of millions of their own people....

Hi -

Long time lurker, first time poster...

Actually, it's Amerikkka. Gotta have three K's in there for the Klu Klux Klan...

I'm embarrased to actually know this stuff, I had a bad spot there as a young'un.

I'm just trying to get my head around the phrase:
Reesa Rosenberg, a Muslim from New Jersey
Doesn't that strike anyone else as odd?

It's not odd, just a continuation of the self-hate most of these people feel. Deep inside, they know they are seriously fucked up; therefore, the rest of the world must be just as fucked up or, they will be outside the norm. Why else would you repudiate your entire ancestry is the most virulent way you could (a Jew converting to the religion of those who wish to destroy Jews)? Does Reesa really think that her "conversion" will protect her or make her any more acceptable to her new associates than the Jews who converted to Catholicism were to the Nazis? Like Michele said.....idiots.

No! No! No! Let's ship 'em to Iraq, Saudi Arabia (Hey lady, here's your burqa. Put it on or get stoned), or Korea. Let 'em see what life is like in theses countries they're defending. Bunch of booger eatin' moh-rons!

I talk with my hubby who is US military [and deployed] about the public opinions all the time ... got so fed up with trying to put into words myself what I think of this crap I had him write it instead ... after all, who better than a deployed US soldier to shed some light.

Protesters, if they could only find a clue!

I'm with Beth on that "name" thing; methinks there is some kind of problem with someone who carries a surname reminiscent of a different background than Muslim. What a dichotomy !!

My POV
Distrust of the Bush Admin does not neccessarily equate to hating America.
I do think Iraq should be dealt with, but will never trust a Bush---ever.
Has there ever been a Bush that wasn't involved in shady activities or otherwise in trouble with the law, starting with Prescott?
Sure, you can't blame an entire family for Grandpa's crimes, if it weren't for the fact that they still retain that ill-begotten wealth.
And you can't blame George for Poppy's crimes, even though Poppy stands to make Great Coin for this and future wars via Carlyle.
The sad thing is, despite George's many shortcomings, Gore would have been worse.
It's great to have a strong repub president, but also very unfortunate that it's a Bush, IMO.
ps.this is not meant as flamebait.
pps. I didn't and won't protest war with Iraq.

Um... then all the Kennedy's deserve to be flayed alive because Papa Joe made his money off ganster booze?

I'm good with that...

Me too, Mike.
But like I say, no reason to blame a whole family for the crimes of one member, unless that whole family turns out to be just as criminally-inclined, which seems to be the case with the Bush Family.

Yeah. Umm Hmm. I'll start the impeachment hearings RIGHT NOW.
