REQUIEM

Below are the two final essays to be posted on Allegiance and Duty Betrayed. The first one is written by a friend -- screen name 'Euro-American Scum' -- who, over the past four years, has been the most faithful essayist here. He has written about everything from his pilgrimage to Normandy in 2004 to take part in the 60th–year commemoration of the invasion, to his memories of his tour in Vietnam. His dedication to America’s founding principles ... and those who have sacrificed to preserve them over the past 200+ years ... is unequaled. Thank you, E-A-S. It has been a privilege to include your writing here, and it is a privilege to call you my friend.

The second essay is my own farewell. And with it I thank all of the many regular visitors, and those who may have only dropped in occasionally, for coming here. I hope you learned something. I hope a seed or two was planted. But, even if not, I thank you for stopping by ... 25 March, 2010

Anti-American Americans Incite and
Encourage Foreign Anti-Americans


I was at the local cafe eating breakfast this morning. I live outside a small town in North Central Texas and we only have one cafe.

Anyway, I was eating my meal and reading a book, aware of, but not really listening to, the conversation of several men known to me as the village idiots at the table next to me.

Then I heard "yea he (President Bush) wanted to torture those people down in GITMO but, Congress stopped him..., blah, blah, blah."

I sat there stunned, wondering how these guys could be so utterly stupid.

Don't get me wrong. I personally think it's just fine to torture the assholes if it's effective. Generally I think it's not good practice, because how do you know if they are saying just anything to get you to stop. But making them feel vulnerable frightened, and uncomfortable does work. It's been proven.

What has been used on these people up until now is not torture. The methods used are not permitted under the Geneva Conventions, but the Geneva Conventions were not intended and do not apply to these nationless, criminal savages. These people are not irregular freedom fighters. They are slaughtering anyone and everyone including their own people who don't agree with them or who just happen to be in the way, or whose death will advance their cause.

Back to my point: What makes these fools sitting next to me say such stupid things? Basically, they are ignorant, not prone to thinking for themselves, born and bred Democrats, and listen to the irresponsible, disrespectful rhetoric and outright lies from liberal Congressional so-called leaders and assume it must be true.

And what makes a foolish dictator like Hugo Chavez think it's permissible to come as a guest to our country and stand in a public forum and insult and disparage the leader of this nation? Well, he hears prominent members of our own Congress do it on a routine basis, so why not? And why not others, especially the dim witted Arab Street, who are primed and ready by their religious and political leaders to believe such crap?

So don't be outraged by the idiot Hugo Chavez; direct your outrage where it belongs: At self-promoting, disloyal politicians who are fomenting and abetting the misguided rage directed at our country. They lend false legitimacy to the anti-Americanism around the world and encourage our enemies. The Communists of North Viet Nam and the USSR benefited from them and so does al Qaeda

I give absolutely no credit to Nancy Polosi or Charlie Rangel for recently speaking out against Hugo Chavez's tirade at the UN and in New York. They gave him license to do it and their outrage is completely disingenuous.

The conversation you overheard is an example of why it might not be a bad idea to have to pass an IQ test in order to vote. ;)

Anti-American Americans Incite and Encourage Foreign Anti-Americans

That's the truth.

"If tinpot tyrants and madmen now come to the United Nations and believe they can say anything they wish about The American President, it is because - as some of us have been warning, for some time - while all manner or irresponsible nonsense and hate has been directed at this president…the world has been watching."

"And now, these tyrants and madmen sound eerily like the Democrats and the press and the left. One ideology, the world over, has completely lost its bearings, its self-control and its manners concerning one man who has never - not once -repaid them back in kind. Not in speeches. Not to the press. Not to “friendly audiences.” He came to town talking about “changing the tone,” and that’s what happened, in a perverse way. One side’s tone went rabid, the other side went nearly-silent, but this one man…kept his tone."

I have been very critical of the President over the past few years (especially, but certainly not exclusively, because of his lack of a solution to the crisis that is occurring across our southern border), but I have to give the Anchoress credit. She has hit the nail on the head in portraying him as continuing to hold the moral high ground where civility is concerned. Kudos to her!

Thanks for the reminder, John.
