Traitor John Boehner Hates The Troops
Weepin’ Woody “John” Boehner is threatening to withhold emergency funding for the troop surge in Afghanistan. Don’t worry, he didn’t suddenly grow an IQ and start questioning why we’re still in Afghanistan after eight years of flailing.
Nope. This is just his little way of protesting the transfer of Guantanamo Bay prisoners onto U.S. soil. You know, because American prisoners are all pure and innocent, and those dirty swarthy Gitmo prisoners are — well, EEEEK!! — they’re dangerous!
Obama is planning to move some of the Gitmo prisoners to an under-used maximum security prison in Thomson, Illinois. This has provided still another burning issue for rightwing demagogues to get their inbreds all riled up about.
For people whose IQs are HIGHER than their shoe sizes, Judge Royce Lamberth offers a bit of perspective. At a meeting of the American Bar Association, he told his audience that American street gangs are more deadly than most of the Gitmo prisoners.
He said: “The gangs are more murderous, I think, than some of these people at Guantanamo. They've certainly killed their share of witnesses here.”
It’s too bad the American public has been so dumbed down — and I mean DUMBED DOOOOWWWWNN!!! — that such a simple common-sense obvious fact needed to be spelled out.
What exactly is the “my mommy and daddy are first cousins” brigade so scared of? Let’s say one of those icky Muslim furriners gets acquitted — or escapes — in the small remote town of Thomson, IL. OK, so here’s Hassan al-Habib walking along, completely unnoticed. And now he’s making a beeline for the nearest airport. Oh My God, he’s just hijacked a plane, and he’s careening toward a skyscraper with it!!!!
To paraphrase an old saying, you can never overestimate people’s paranoia. And when you combine that paranoia with stupidity, you get — well, you get a huge huuuge following for Rush O’Hannity and Weepin’ Woody.
