This is something that has really gotten to me lately. How the heck do I keep friendly relations with those that support the willful destruction of our nation and who support what will cause untold misery for millions if they succeed? They smile. They love me. I love them. And yet....all the while they are doing their best to kill everything good and bring destruction.
I tell myself that good people supported Hitler when he rose to power. They just didn't know any better. They were duped. But somehow I can't get past it.
Burt Prelutsky has been thinking about this stuff too:
If you’re convinced, as I am, that Barack Obama is the greatest menace America has ever faced — a far graver danger than Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or Islamic fascism, simply because they all lacked the ability or determination to destroy our Constitution — losing a few friends and relatives is no big deal.
If we only had to worry about Obama, it would be bad enough. But he has all those moral rejects to do his bidding. People like Pelosi, Reid, Axelrod, Waxman, Emanuel and Barney Frank, are ready and anxious to serve their lord and master. He says, “Jump!” and they ask “How high?” Some of us thought his earlier friends and associates — people like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Tony Rezko — were bad, but we didn’t realize he’d ferret out even bigger weasels in Washington.
Psychiatrists are forever seeking the cause and cure of various diseases. They have focused on everything from paranoia to schizophrenia and clinical depression, but I think it’s high time they turned their attention to liberalism. It’s far more prevalent than those other mental disorders, and it appears to be particularly rampant among journalists, lawyers, union leaders and academics. Blacks, Jews and the young, are especially susceptible. And for reasons not entirely clear, it seems to strike hardest at people who reside near the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. So perhaps salt water plays a part in it.
The symptoms are all too obvious. Liberals will believe the silliest things said to them so long as they’re said by left-wing politicians, who form something of a priesthood for atheists. Liberals accept lies about man-made global warming and the extinction of polar bears and glaciers, while simultaneously rejecting objective evidence that the earth has been cooling off for the past decade, that the polar bear population has been exploding at a rate that suggests Viagra has been introduced into their diet and that, in spite of all the hot air Al Gore has been spewing, we have as much ice as ever.
Furthermore, liberals are convinced that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant and that “separation of church and state” actually exists in the U.S. Constitution.
As gullible as liberals are, there are certain things that they oppose with every fiber of their being. Among them are nuclear energy, a strong U.S. military, Judeo-Christian values and traditions, America’s exceptionalism and, of course, the 2nd amendment. They pay lip service to the 1st amendment, but in their hearts they believe it only pertains to them.
Just like Al Quada, the left has declared war on America. They just use different means to achieve the same goals and want themselves to be the ruling mullahs, instead of Osama Bin Laden or somebody. Other than that, they are no different.
So I'm loosing friends. Well, war sucks. The men and women in 1776 lost a heck of a lot more.
And some of my "friends" are making a mockery of their sacrifice and that of every man and woman who has died over the years defending what they built.
Those "friends" are no friends of mine.
