Anti-Americans in High Places

When you support sponsors of international terrorism, have sympathy for the jihadist enemies of America and consistently laud America’s enemies and assail America’s military during wartime, you ARE acting in an anti-American manner.

Since 2002, the American Left has gone on an orgy of anti-Americanism, starting with protests against the invasion of Afghanistan, when the Taliban refused to hand over the al Qaida members in their midsts.

Later that year, three Democratic Congressmen (Dave Bonior, Jim McDermott and Mike Thompson) went on a Saddam Hussein-paid junket to Iraq to highlight the devastation of the U.S. sanctions in Iraq – at the time, the ONLY tool we had to try and rein in this vicious, state sponsor of international terrorism.

Jim McDermott, was particularly repugnant in both his pity for Iraq, which at the time, was the same as having pity for Saddam Hussein and his “blame America first” stance.

It has only recently come out that Saddam Hussein sponsored and paid for that trip. Of course, none of the three men have been charged, as they (1) claim they didn’t know that Hussein had funded that trip (politicians go on junkets not knowing who paid for them, about as much as do professional athletes ingest things into their bodies that they don’t know the contents of, which is to say, NEVER) and (2) that they only went to witness the plight of the Iraqi children, said a McDermott spokesman, “That’s the only reason we went.”

Ironically enough, a video has surfaced that shows Jim McDermott lying about who funded that trip. It aired on C-Span on October 30, 2007. In that short clip (see BELOW) Jim McDermott says, “When a Seattle Church group sent me to visit Iraq in 2002...”

Now, why would Jim McDermott LIE about who sponsored that trip, if he wasn’t aware that taking a gift (the trip cost over $5,000 per person), from a rogue state sponsor of international terrorism, might be, you know, wrong, especially in the wake of 9/11 and all?

The fact is that all three of these men opposed the sanctions against Iraq, McDermott opposed the surge (surprise!) and at least McDermott called the invasion of Iraq a “war for oil.”

But this anti-Americanism is not limited to Iraq. For years now, we know that Joe Kennedy II has shilled for would-be dictator, Hugo Chavez, a man whose forged alliances with Cuba and Iran and pushed OPEC to reduce output to, among other things, wreak havoc on the U.S. economy.

Recently, James McGovern’s (D-Mass) name has surfaced on a computer disc recovered from the Colombian attack on a FARC terror camp. It turns out that the recovered hard drive of Raul Reyes (the FARC leader) revealed, what the Wall Street Journal called, “an ardent effort to do business directly with FARC by Congressman James McGovern."

The WSJ reported that Rep McGovern had also acted as “an American go-between, who has been offering the rebels help in undermining Colombia’s elected and popular government.” Here at home, Rep McGovern has been a staunch opponent of the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade deal that Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is desperate for.

So, the American Left has embraced Saddam Hussein, Hugo Chavez and the South American, anti-Capitalist, anti-American terror group, FARC! On virtually EVERY front, far-Left Americans have embraced a rigid anti-American posture.

What else does any caring American need to know?

Sickening! There is something seriously twisted about the way that crowd thinks.

What's somewhat amazing here is that in every instance where a Left-wing dictator or terror-supporter opposes the U.S., folks like McGovern, McDermott and Kennedy and many, many other Left-wing dopes, who all claim to "support the common man," can be counted on to support those terrorists and dictators, who all revile and oppress the common man.

Yes, it is a product of American citizen/voter ignorance and apathy gone wild. It seems that once little stunts like this are allowed to pass without being widely noted and denounced, the door is yanked wide open and the less bold traitors follow suit. It is so disturbing that we are substantially allowing these underminers to continue undetoured and unpunished. Why does no one seem to recognize the downward spiral?

Do you reckon it may be that their intolerance for any party in the Wh besides their own leads to act out like this?

Like in the 90's - the left didn't seem to mind when Great Satan intervened in the Balkans or shot missiles anywhere we wanted. It seems like they only act out when the GOP is in charge.

So McDermott, Thompson, and Bonior opposed our sanctions against Iraq. Funny, considering how the libtards are always saying that we should use diplomacy and other non-violent means to deal with tyrants. Hypocrites!!

Sorry DF, Courtney and Seane-Anna, I've been away at the National Fire Academy at Emmitsburg MD for the past week and am going back to finish the two-week course I'm taking in HazMat Site Operations.

Yes DF, it certainly does seem to be "a product of American citizen/voter ignorance and apathy gone wild," although the MSM has been complicit in NOT following such stories. After all, most in the media are on that very same wave length.

And no question about it Courtney, there were no "peace activists" over Bosnia, just as the "homeless advocates" magically disappeared (as did the stories about the homelessness that didn't abate one bit under Clinton) when Wild Bill was in the WH.

And Seane-Anna, by "diplomacy" libs mean TALK only and when they're rebuffed, they feel fine about saying, "Well, we tried."
