Why We Fight

I was trying to write a thorough and thoughtful analysis of the decade since 9/11, but I was having trouble distilling all of my thoughts. I’m greatly concerned about the civil liberties we have so eagerly surrendered in exchange for a sense of security. I’ll be covering that issue more often in the future, so I’ll defer that topic for today.

Instead, I’ll leave you with this reminder of why we fight the terrorists. Shockingly, these terrorists actively—and legally!—operate within the borders of the United States and plot the overthrow of the Constitution. Here is a YouTube video of two of them, recorded just days after the horrific events of 9/11/2001.

    When it comes to the general life of the US and our political system these two are the biggest terrorists I know!

    Oh no, Ron – you’re completely wrong! These guys love them the Constitution! It’s a sacred All-Amerkin text, just like the Bible…their version of it anyway. And, just like the Bible, they can interpret it just any old way, claim that its articles mean whatever they say it means to support whatever cause is chapping their asses at the moment. Want to carry that Colt .45 to work, school, and the shopping mall? Second Amendment is Amerkin God’s way of saying, “hey, you go right ahead! It’s yur right as a red-blooded, white-skinned Amerkin!” Want to cram your Jesus-rants down everyone’s throat? Why, there’s that little old thing about freedom of religion (But NOT, I repeat NOT, freedom FROM religion)! And well, that bullshit about women and the vote…that’s the Constitution’s own version of the Apocrypha. Should never have been allowed out in the printed version. We gotta get back to the One True Constitution, as envisioned by Old White AMerkin Males, including God and Jesus, at the dawn of time. Yeah! Truth, Justice, and the Amerkin Way (as defined by White True-Believin Christians; no others need apply)!!

    Remember when America used to keep the lunatics in the asylums.

    Pity that’s not the case now.

    rub xian noses in xian filth

    Founder of xian cult, P/Saul of Tarsus (fl 50-68 CE) marketed to the dispossessed of the eastern Roman Empire an easy-to-own inverted snobbery:

    Brothers… not many of you were wise…; not…influential; not…of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things…to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things…and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are…1Cor1:26-28 NIV

    We stink, but stinking is godly. Pure nihilism — “to nullify the things that are [desirable]” — nothing has changed in two millennia.

    The best defense against xians is not good reason, but a good nose.

    Hey, it’s Blasphemy Rights Day! Let’s all blaspheme with impunity and let the fundies rage helplessly while their absentee overlord does nothing to stop us.

    Fuck God, Yahweh, Allah, Mohammed, Jesus and the Holy Spirit too….The Quran and the Bible are the Sears catalogues in the outhouse at my fishing spot….

    I know, I know – pretty tame stuff. I’m sure the gods have heard it all before, but still – shouldn’t I be struck by lightning any minute now?

    Still waiting.
