This is exactly what I meant
the other day when I wrote
about the FAR left and their mean, hateful bullshit.
I just got finished reading the DU thread
on the missionaries (two of them a bloggers's parents) killed in Mosul the other day.
Let me sum up 90% of the posts there:
bq. They deserved it for trying to convert the world to their religion. They deserved it because they were stupid to go to Iraq in the first place. The "water purifiers" who were killed were only there acting for Halliburton. Rove sent the missionaries. Bush sent them. They are really there at Bush's request to force the "occupied" land of Iraq to convert to Christianity. They obviously have a mental illness because they are trying to spread their faith. They were Southern Baptist morons and for that reason alone they should be dead. We should send more of them over.
And that was enough to read.
Listen, I am not one for prostelyzing, especially in country that hates other religions. But I don't wish death upon those who do. Not only were the comments about deserving death sickening, but those idiots who gleefully blamed Bush and Rove as if this was some sort of agenda of theirs to convert every Iraqi are incredibly ignorant.
Some of the DU'ers said the victims deserve to die and they were stupid for going to a hostile land where they ran the risk of getting killed.
So, with that line of thinking in mind, it would have been ok for right wingers to exhibit as much glee if anti-war human shields died during an Iraq battle? Or is that somehow not morally equivelant?
It was just about a year ago that the left was screaming about the right's handling of Rachel Corrie's death
. Don't speak ill of the dead, etc., etc.
You asked for proof of my accusations
the other day. I'll keep posting shit like this every day if you want.
How do you far lefties justify these harsh words? Or will you just pull out your moral equivelance cards and say "you've done it, too?"
Update: Check this out as well.
At first I thought that DU thread was some kind of parody or joke, but it seems like the Undergrounders are pretty serious about going on a "dirty trick" campaign.
I wouldn't tolerate crap like that from the far right either, so don't even bother trying to argue that angle with me.
