  • Anarchy in NYC

       July 13, 2004

    What the hell is wrong with people? The New York Daily News reports on the preparations of anarchists (okay, time out for a moment. anarchists prepare? shouldn't they be against that?) to disrupt the Republican National Convention next month. Plans apparently include decoying bomb sniffing dogs in order to stop trains and evacuate buildings. Just a couple of thoughts:

    Why are the anarchists targeting the Republican convention? Shouldn't they hate Democrats just as much, if not even more? In theory, the greatest enemy of an anarchist is the government and Democrats are traditionally for bigger government, right? So, these jackasses actually have the wrong target.

    I'll ask again. What the hell is wrong with these people? It's as if certain Americans have a collective amnesia about the events of 9/11. We really were attacked by terrorists. 3,000 people really did die. Islamofascist terrorists really do hate us and they will try to kill us again. Pretending it didn't happen isn't an effective way to prevent it from happening again.

    In fact, what these people are planning on doing is treason. They are actively helping our enemies. Now, I know that, for some reason, anarchists and leftists think that Islamofascist terrorists don't really hate them, too. But, guess what, they do. They hate feminists. They hate homosexuals. They hate environmentalists. They hate born again Christians. They hate atheists. The list goes on and on. They hate us all and we need to be in this together to defeat them.

    This weekend, I saw a woman walking with a poster saying that women "needed" to vote for Kerry. I wish I would have stopped her and asked why. What specific issues make Kerry so great for women? It's as if some people think that abortion is the only issue women care about. And, that if they do care, they're all pro-choice.

    In the meantime, thousands and thousands of young women are going to school again in Afghanistan. Iraqi women are joining the new police force and in the last couple of months the American economy has boomed, helping countless women and their families.

    Why do some persist in thinking that the enemy of America is America? Some people seem to want nothing more than to close their eyes and plug their ears and hope that makes the world a suddenly safer place. Others want to go on pushing and pulling for their pet projects (abortion, gay marriage both for and against, anarchy, etc.) and completely disregard the new reality we live in.

    I truly believe the greatest danger we face is from Islamofascist terrorists. But every time I read another article like this I start to worry more and more about the dangers and carelessness from within.

    excellent points. i'm sick of people on the left doing all they can to disrupt the right, including going out of their way to make our country look bad, and as far as helping (or in moores case accepting help from) terrorists. it's just plain disgusting.

    pretty weird to hear a 21 year old say this, but do you think something like this would have happened back in the 50s? or look back at ww2. everyone stuck together. sure there were extremists, but today we have whole groups that are counter-productive to society and they don't even know it.

    ELF, ACLU, NAACP, and GreenPeace just to name a few. It's just downright disgusting how low some of these groups will stoop just to get what they want...

    Okay, i think the anarchists and the Michael Moores genuinely hate America, but I don't think other groups are doing things like this because of hatred. I think they're in denial. What sucks is that how many people have to be killed by terrorists before they realize it's a serious problem? al-Qaida has thrown out that perhaps 8 million Americas should die. 8 million!! How can you argue about all these piddling issues when there are people, who have already attacked us, out there saying 8 million of us have to die??

    As far as history goes, well, even after WWII there were plenty of isolationists. The worst draft riots in American history happened in 1864. I don't think the resistance to America's goals is any different than it's been in the past, but frankly, the government isn't cracking down on it like they used to and the media isn't acting as a cheerleader. They're certainly not objective, however.

    I'm also beginning to think that these "Americans" are actually more dangerous than the terrorists. Why? Because I have no doubt that we will eventually win the War of Terror and that the Islamofacists will be thrown on the scrapheap of history with the USSR. The only way we are going to be defeated is if we lack the political will. People like these protestors and the Michael Moores of the world and the liberal media are sapping the public's will to stick this out.
