HTML Mencken over at Sadly, No! has this quote from genocidal Canadian basement-dweller Adam Yoshida:
The Knife and the BackWhich leads to the inevitable Yoshida-riffic eliminationist conclusion:
From the very beginning what has frightened me most about the Global War on Terrorism is this: that the United States and the West simply do not, in their present condition, have the stomach to bring this war to a successful conclusion. I have never really been given a satisfactory answer to the question, “how do you win a war against the enemy in front of you while ignoring the knife-wielding enemy behind you?”
At every step, the left – and its many allies on the rest of the political spectrum – have sought to obstruct all efforts to win this war. At every turn they’ve handcuffed our forces and circumscribed our options.
rather than join in the effort to defeat this enemy, certain treasonous elements within lurking here at home have seized the opportunity for their own petty political advantage – or, in certain cases, out of genuinely-felt but nonetheless objectively evil moral principles.
The enemy within acts as a form of heavy artillery on behalf of the wider enemy conspiracy.
When liberals betrayed us during Vietnam and stabbed our soldiers and our allies in the back, the result was millions of dead. Not that many people noticed because it happened in a far away land about which we know little. But, if we let them pull off their betrayal this time, the millions of dead will be in our own cities. They will come from our own towns and our own homes.
What is required today is what has been required from the very beginning: an all-out and total offensive against the enemy on all fronts and without the least shred of compassion or restraint.The operating premise of S,N! is that the batshit loopy wingnuts of the right blogosphere tend to express, in its purest form, the murderous insanity that underlies so much right-wing thought, yet which "respectable" conservative pundits are too polite to make explicit. And it's a good premise.
