We Don't Need that Fascist Groove Thing

Dinesh D'Souza's articles are a temptation. They are usually pretty easy to respond to. Just print the most outrageous paragraph and do the blogging equivelant of rolling my eyes. The column practically writes itself (although I still have to put in the punctuation - Blogging is hard!). So it seems lazy to comment on his articles. But let's do it anyway, because this weeks article is a bet less crazed than his recent ones, and because it's just about lunchtime.

So let's look at this weeks article, which is about how we want to lose in Iraq and to Osama bin Ladin (apparently).
Yes, but it is precisely in the name of these causes that several figures on the left want the Islamic radicals to win, and Bush to lose, the war on terror. If you listen carefully to the rhetoric of leading leftists, you discover that they dislike Bin Laden and the Islamic radicals but they hate Bush and his conservative allies. Bin Laden to them is the “far enemy” but Bush is the “near enemy.” From their point of view, Bin Laden’s radicals want sharia in Baghdad but Bush’s religious and political supporters wants sharia in Boston. It is Bush, not Bin Laden, who threatens with one more Supreme Court appointment to jeopardize the left’s hard-won social victories of the past generation.
Hey, just out of curiousity, didn't someone say recently "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." Yeah - must have been one of those weaselly Democrats.

No wait, it was President Bush. And then President Bush invaded Iraq - a move that weakened our military while giving him enormous recruiting possibilities. But let's lay all that side in order to focus on the real enemy - Liberals! Apparently!
