|We know he can't think very well; but Justin case he also can't read, the quotation from his parent group's website wasn't something like: "a critique of pro-war values." The quotation is: "a Cultural Critique, targeted initially at American culture and its relationship to war." (Emphasis in original.)|
Now, why "cultural critique," and not "political" or "ethical" critique?
And why "American culture" -- and not just (generic) "culture, and its relationship to war"?
Words are meant to convey meanings and nuances, and it's damned obvious why they chose the precise words they did.
But notice that every time you catch these S.O.B.s' hands in the proverbial cookie jar, they insist they were just trying to warm their fingers.
They use the most incendiary rhetoric to denounce the U. S. military and leadership -- e. g., mass murderers, rapists, torturers, Nazis, imperialists, etc.; but when you call them on any of it, they bridle indignantly: How (they demand) can you DARE suggest that we're anti-American, merely because that's the only government on the planet at which we spit our venom 24/7?
If you quote the unconscionable shit posted daily on their websites and blogs, they reply: Oh, that piece was written by someone else, not me; I of course disagree with him; but being broadminded, I merely give him, and dozens of others of his ilk, an unrestricted platform for dumping unconscionable anti-American shit onto the public.
When you point out the blatant fact that all of their screeds, taken together, add up to one long, consistent and unremitting Blame-America-First diatribe, they howl in protest. You're being unfair, they claim; you should judge each discrete article or blog entry or author in absolute isolation, on its own; you should never add up all the myriad components of our websites, organizations, articles, speeches, blogs and books into their anti-American total.
Folks, this is sophistry, and that's the nicest term I can think of.
Please hit the links in my previous post, and track them back to the original sources. Dig through their crap for yourselves. As you do, do a bit of weighing and balancing: weigh how much of the crap they throw at America, as opposed to how much they throw at all the Arab despots, communists, Islamic jihadists, etc.
In contrast, observe how much abuse they hurl at those foreigners -- including Muslims in places such as Afghanistan and Iraq -- who STAND ON AMERICA'S SIDE. Note the labels, e. g., quislings, traitors, neo-con puppets, etc., etc.
Then draw your own conclusions.
