It’s funny how conservative minds work. Yesterday Charlie Black, Skeevy Uncle Fester’s senior advisor, said that another terrorist attack on the United States would help the republican party and, in particular, Senator McSame’s presidential campaign. He couldn’t be farther from the truth.
If another attack does happen, we’re gonna have to ask (then answer) us some questions:
Who’s been in the White House for the past seven years? Republicans.
Who’s been in charge of Congress twelve out of the last fourteen years? Republicans.
Who claims to be the party of national security? Republicans.
And that brings us to the crux of our biscuit:
The politics of fear is nothing new. But since 9/11 the conservative fear-mongering has worked well on the American public. Not. Anymore.
No, if another terrorist attack happens Mr. Black it will not help you because it will have been caused by you. Every time a civilian dies at the hands of Blackwater, you create a hundred more terrorists. For every human being denied habeas corpus and thrown into Gitmo indefinitely, you create a hundred more terrorists.
And from your friends’ war profiteering to the pointless waste of America’s treasure and soldier’s lives…you Mr. Black, you and your ilk will have done more to harm to the reputation, the psyche and the future of America than any terrorist could ever do.
