It's Bizarro World...
"We should be fingerprinting environmentalists," Coulter replied. "As for what can be done to convince Americans that we face an enemy that hates America as much as the terrorists, we should put people like Ann Coulter on TV more, stop with the infernal nonsense of thinking liberals are decent but misguided people, and characterize the threat appropriately.
"Start by telling the truth about them: They are out to destroy the country."
"...to destroy America from the inside with their relentless attacks on morality and truth."
It's curious that when people say things like this, anyone actually takes them seriously. Oh...and yes...we liberals run the media... strangely we just don't bother reporting the NSA domestic spying until a year after we found out about it and the massacres in Fallujah...anyway, I digress. The bottom line is, the same people who truly believe liberals want to destroy America think it's utterly ridiculous if not treasonous to suggest that say...our government may have taken advantage of 9/11 to grab excessive powers they are known to be abusing, or to invade a country that was no threat to us and that our leaders had been itching to invade for years...just because we can read about it on their own website for the PNAC doesn't mean there was anything fishy with their Iraq plans!
It's perfectly plausible that they had absolutely no inkling Bin Laden would attack...and yet that they knew he was the culprit twenty minutes after it happened! Of course we couldn't infiltrate the complex network of Al Qaeda! It's not like John Walker Lindh had an easy time joining them! He had to travel all the way to Afghanistan to do it! None of our own intelligence agents could have done anything that kooky! The fact that there were four NORAD tests going on the day of 9/11 and that some were about planes crashing into buildings...just a wacky coincidence! No one could envision planes used as weapons! What a crazy idea! Only a liberal could deny all these things are just sheer chance occurrences!...a liberal bent on destroying America!
Why do an actual criminal investigation into the greatest murder in US history? Why not dispose of all the WTC rubble ASAP? Of course we should spy on US citizens and follow and intimidate peace activists! There's no room to question in a time of WAR...This is WAR after all...open-ended perpetual WAR! There's no room for questioning ever again!!!!...unless it's the government doing the questioning. Then it's ok to torture...oh I mean make stuff unpleasant...sorry...and we all know nobody under duress would ever lie about anything or say whatever people want to hear just to make the pain stop...I guess we're taking lessons from our sworn enemy Saddam...we USED to be in the forefront of innovation...
