...I only wish I could have had said it myself.
Sunday, April 18, 2010
In one of the greatest movies ever made, Alec Guinness plays the absolutely proud, and absolutely stoic World War II Colonel Nicholson. Nicholson, a Brit, leads his surrendered regiment in discipline and misery into a hellish Japanese POW camp, set on the River Kwai in the deepest jungles of Thailand. Freshly arrived in camp, Col. Nicholson provokes the wrath of the, uhhhh, inflexible Japanese commander, Colonel Saito, by insisting on formal adherence to the Geneva Convention on POWs. Nicholson is beaten, starved, and baked in a tiger cage until Col. Saito relents, but only in order to ensure a critical work quota from the prisoners, so the great railway line can be built across the River Kwai, and thus help the Japs to win the war.
Accordingly, Nicholson becomes a taskmaster on behalf of the construction, even reproaching his men when they try to shirk, and acquiring a sense of pride in this Japanese military project. Unbeknownst to him, the Brits prepare a commando mission to blow up the bridge. As the commando mission strikes, Nicholson's pride leads him to defend the bridge, until...until... until 1:19 of this clip:
He whispers: "What have I done?"
"WHAT HAVE I DONE?!"
I wonder how Democrats, especially Jewish Democrats, can watch this scene in recent days. What took Col. Nicholson 156 minutes on screen to realize...they're still clueless about, after more than 40 years. More than 40 years of apologizing for fascists despots like Ho, Castro, and Arafat. More than 40 years of suppressing history they don't like. More than 40 years of twisting news reports to damage the forces of freedom and democracy and help the forces of revolutionary totalitarianism. More than 40 years of demonizing productive inventors, employers and investors, and glamorizing sloth, extortion, and mendacious whining. More than 40 years of ridiculing a millenia-proven concept known as "normal marriage," and pathetic experimentation and boosterism of every perverted notion that rejects it.
And now, in the latest and most unbelievable chapter, a solid 20 years of coddling and patronizing of the most regressive force unleashed on the globe in 500 years, jihadism. Apparently feminist women only feel free to roar when oppressive males pay them 15% less per hour, not when they execute them for getting pregnant outside of marriage, or throw acid in their faces for walking in the street without a male escort.
And then there's the strange consistency of so many of Pres. Obama's friends, which has never incurred any complaint a thousandth the magnitude of, sayyyyy, Sen. Lott's birthday comments to Strom Thurmond. Consider such characters as Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rashid Khalidi, Noam Chomsky, Ray Hananiah, William Ayres, Samantha Power and Robert Malley --they're all just filthy little peas in the same crowded Jooooooo-hating pod. And all of this is pointing to the grand blood sacrifice that they secretly yearn for: the conquest of Israel, and the return of the Jews to their proper place of dhimmitude.
Is this really where "liberals" and "progressives" intended to end up as they directed their fearsome energies over the past 40 years? Serving as willing accomplices to a pre-medieval despotism in its efforts to mass-murder peaceful Jews? Yet that is where they are. And in their shriveled, perverted heart-of-hearts, they still know it. They ALWAYS know. Conservatives often give them the benefit of the doubt on their "good intentions," when it is never justified. They know.
Is the Iranian missile program moving any slower than the Japanese locomotive toward the bridge? Is the military plan of Israel any less desperately essential than the Brits' plan to blow up the bridge? Are Ahmadinejad and his swinish allies any less demonic than Col. Saito and his guards?
But my friends, you better believe the new Colonel Nicholsons will never awaken from their moral coma in time. Not until thousands of civilians are vaporized. And even then, they won't feel any remorse, unless those vaporizations occur east of Iraq.
Then, just watch the earth shake under their marching, protesting feet.

THE MISERABLE END OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS JEWISH FIGURE TO JOIN HIS ENEMIES AND BETRAY HIS HERITAGE (FIRST PHOTO) AND THE WEAPON THAT HIS COMRADE USED TO SPLIT HIS BRAIN (SECOND PHOTO)
Pass the cyanide--I can't take it anymore!
You may recall Tariq Ramadan, the European-based jihadi whose grandpa founded the Muslim Brotherhood. Well, guess where he's going to be speaking on April 8, and guess who's made it all possible?
Come see Jacob Weisberg moderate a panel featuring George Packer and Ramadan in his first U.S. appearance since his visa was revoked.
In 2004, Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss professor of Islamic studies, lost a tenured position at Notre Dame after the Bush administration revoked his visa under the Patriot Act, following allegations that professor Ramadan had donated to a Swiss charity that gave money to Hamas. Six years later—after Ramadan filed suit and the ruling that enabled the government to strip him of his visa was overturned—Professor Ramadan is appearing publicly for the first time since he was barred from the country....
We invite you to join Slate Group Chairman Jacob Weisberg as he moderates a conversation called "Secularism, Islam & Democracy: Muslims in Europe and the West" on Thursday, April 8, at Cooper Union. ....
The event, which is also hosted by the PEN American Center, the ACLU, and the American Association of University Professors (the three organizations that went to court to challenge the ruling against Ramadan), will take place at 7 pm at Cooper Union, 7 East Seventh St. (at Third Avenue), New York City.
Isn't it nice that Jacob Weisberg, and all the nice Jewish folks at Slate, AND the ACLU, AND PEN, AND the AAUP, ALL THOSE NICE JEWISH FOLKS have got together to dredge up the likes of Tariq Ramadan and insert him into our fair land? And pay him to spew his taqqiyah all over the place? Those orgnizations must have thousands of Jewish members, and this is how they spend their time & money (ohhhhh, and as Jihad Watch reported, providing volunteer lawyers to help Muslims evade FBI investigations, yipppeeeeee!!) I don't blame Tariq, his grandpa was founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, evil is in his genes, but how were all these nice American Jewish boys and girls raised?
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE IDIOTS??!!
And this is just piled on to the news that the now-utterly worthless AIPAC has been taken over by a fat Obama stooge and fundraiser. Maybe Rosie Rosenberg can now send his money to the SaveAlAqsaNow! foundation?
I'm having the same thoughts as Alvy Singer in Annie Hall: "The rest of the country thinks New York is nothing but a bunch of left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers. Sometimes I do, and I live here!"
