People Have Lost Their Goddamn Minds! Part 2

This week's culprits are those that either believe the US should boycott the opening ceremonies or the Olympics altogether and those that are protesting human rights abuses by the country of China.

Why have they lost their goddamn minds? Why do I even need to explain this one?

When was the last time you saw this level of protest against the human rights abuses by the US?

Where are the protestors scaling the Golden Gate Bridge in response to the atrocities committed in Iraq, Afghanistan and at Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib and any of the various "black sites" around the world that we know nothing about?

A few weeks back, I wrote a bit about how I couldn't wait until Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton took office in the White House so that I could watch as those who would otherwise call themselves "anti-war" protestors would figure out a way not to come into conflict with their man or woman in D.C.

I see now that I don't have to wait for those days; they're already (and have, for quite a while, been) here.

This ties in with the comments made yesterday morning on C-SPAN as senators and congresspeople such as Russ Feingold, who would otherwise get a thumbs-up from yours truly, didn't even bother mentioning the deaths of the Iraqi people in the equation as to why the US needs to get the fuck out of Iraq.

Those deaths are not even a blip on the radar screen of these jack-offs.

No, instead, it's about the security of the US, the prevention of Iran from "taking over the region" (nice wet dream and wasn't that the reason given as to why the US fixed the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq in the first place?) and...and...and...

Feingold even went so far as to declare that where the US really should be is in Afghanistan and Pakistan so as to destroy the boogeyman, Al Qaeda. This despite the fact that he read a speech by Bin Laden (or one of his many dopplegangers) that said our reasonless "wars" (read: massacres) would end up bankrupting this country, a sentiment that Feingold agreed with and has, whether you like it or not, proven true.

People have lost their goddamn minds and these two examples prove it yet again.

    I don't think it's that Feingold doesn't care as much as it is him trying to find the chords to resonate with the American audience, which is made up of a significant number of people who actually DON'T care.
