Ted Kennedy and Osama bin Laden… basically the same guy, according to leftist logic.
The Intellectual Vacuity and Moral Bankruptcy of the left is illustrated in this post — and in the responding comments — to this Daily Kos diary entry.
Yes, the 9/11 attacks were horrific, but they were more about optics than actual harm. The economy was already taking a hit before the Twin Towers fell. The reaction of the nation to seeing two major buildings in New York fall on T.V. has boosted the attack out of proportion. While the loss of even a single life is to be condemned and the devastation these deaths caused the families of those killed, more than this number of teens are killed every year in car crashes.
You got that? Brutal, deliberate, mass murder is the same… possibly not even as bad… as people getting into car accidents.
And if you don’t see it that way, the Kossacks have an explanation: You’re a self-hating racist:
Their true hatred is aganist themselves that hatred of self is so profound, they need to release it by means of projecting it on some “other” groups. The level of their fear and hate equals to the level of hate and fear of their own humanity. There will come a day when “Muslim scapegoat” will get old and they will have a new “enemy.”
