The Shaved Ape: Liberals Remembering 9-11

I spent a lot of time yesterday reading some wonderful tributes to the victims of 9-11. There were also insightful perspectives on our war on terror, the president's resolve to keep our nation safe, and the overall strength of the American Spirit. Not surprisingly these views were all from the political right.

Don Long, a.k.a. The Shaved Ape posts about Liberals Remembering 9-11 He visits the likes of DailyKos, Democratic Underground, and Huffington Post among others. Liberals used this occasion to attack Bush, attack the WoT, and attack the war on Iraq. Yet they also use the opportunity to promote gay marriage? When one post suggested that America should have done NOTHING after the 9-11 attack, The Shaved Ape had this comment:
"It's a very liberal ideal to do nothing when attacked, because aggressive behavior, to these liberals, is the worst possible response, regardless of circumstance.

Imagine a playground bully who just bloodied the nose of another kid. Do you honestly tell the victim he should not fight back simply because that's what the bully wants? Just let him go on punching you, kid, because aggression is bad, no matter what.

In these trying times, I would not feel safe with this ideology in the White House.

Go read the whole thing. H/T: David Drake
