Plastic Patriot IgnoranceSaturday, January 14, 2012
Regarding Lew Rockwell’s post on the website that bears his name: he notes the twist on the definition of terrorism: “Terrorism is a Muslim killing an Israeli, an American, or one of their allies.”
But an American, Israeli, or one of their allies killing a “Terrorist” in his own homeland is a hero, a soldier of democracy, a protector of western civilization, a patriot, a freedom keeper, an honorable soldier, an anti-oppressor, and a guy who “serves us” and “keeps us free.” After all, freedom isn’t free, you know.
Now, if you want to spend a few moments chuckling your behind off, I suggest you go to SupportOurTroops.org and read this article, “America is Not an Empire,” by the Chairman of Support Our Troops, Martin C. Boire. This is where the definition distraction gets pretty funny. The whole article is hysterically funny, and it is rooted in plastic patriot ignorance, but here’s one funny snippet:
America is in truth the first altruistic force for good on planet Earth. A population which will defend people, set them free, and then come home.
…America does what it does to protect the freedom and the peace of the world against those who want to control everything and tell everyone what to do. We hold back the dark forces. Provide stability. Check chaos. We give the people of the world the opportunity to prosper.
Really … please, please … you need to read this piece and have some compassion for poor Martin. This is the most amateurish pro-war piece ever penned for the web.
