The Enlightened Right
April 29, 2004 — 9:00 pm

My good friend Brian has a few humorous entries over on his blog entitled “The Enlightened Left”.

Today I was thinking it would be a good idea to add to his theme. Except, I’ll focus on the Right.

I realize that the column I’m about to reference is relatively old when dealing with blogs. However, it is probably the absolute starkest example I could find of Conservative idiocy within the past couple of weeks.

Joseph Farah from WND is one mad Mother Fu#*er. I’ve addressed a couple of his columns right here on this blog. Remember how he condoned the murder of an adulterer? How about when he advocated the return of a Hollywood blacklist for those who criticized President Bush? Especially for that “scum bucket” Johnny Depp who had the nerve to say America was like a “dangerous puppy”. Ohhh…Booga Booga…the treasonous bastards are everywhere…we must silence them!

Well, believe it or not, old Joe has outdone himself. Yes, Mr. William Randolph Hearst reincarnate, is once again waiving the bloody shirt and by God, there’s the Devil to pay.

In his column entitled “Pound Fallujah”, Mr. Farah breathlessly exclaims:

Not all of the Iraqi city’s population, or even most of them, bear responsibility for the despicable, cowardly attacks on four U.S. civilians murdered, mutilated, incinerated and hung from a bridge over the Euphrates River.

But the longer that religious leaders and residents protect and shield those who carried out the attacks – and those who are against U.S. troops and Iraqis eager to build a free society – the more responsible the residents of Fallujah collectively become.

The day of reckoning is coming. It will be precise, according to U.S. military officials. And it will be overwhelming.

Fallujah is going to pay a price for the blood it has spilled.

Wow, that sounds pretty ominous. This statement, of course, was in response to the heinous and brutal murder of four private security guards (two were ex Navy Seals) in Iraq. It was reported that even the majority of onlookers were disgusted with the carnage as it is a mortal sin to desecrate the dead.

Farah continues:

We should not try to gain an international consensus for this action. We should not apologize for it. We should not restrain our Air Force and our artillery batteries from wreaking devastation. We should not expose our ground troops to unnecessary risks.

In other words, we may need to flatten Fallujah. We may need to destroy it. We may need to grind it, pulverize it and salt the soil, as the Romans did with troublesome enemies.

Quite frankly, we need to make an example out of Fallujah.

By Mr. Farah’s own admission, he realizes that more than 250,000 people live in the city of Fallujah. Let me just repeat that. TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

The brave and heroic Mr. Farah suggests that WE need to destroy it. We need to grind it, pulverize it and salt the soil. (Does anyone else find it a tad bit ironic that he would chose the Romans for an example)? Of course, if Mr. Farah were truthful, he would have said “Hey, YOU guys need to destroy it. I’ll just, you know, give you some moral support from my house”.

And, isn’t that what it’s all about? Mr. Farah and his ilk will never pick up a rifle in the perceived defense of this country. His weapon of choice is a keyboard and all the vitriol he can spew.

You know, unlike Mr. Farah, I’m not a religious person. I guess you could call me an Agnostic. Sure, I freely admit that the day may come when I meet my maker. When Christ asks me why I was not a believer I’m gonna have to be honest with him.

“Because Lord, your representatives did a rather poor job spreading Your word”.

I don’t know if that’s gonna earn me a pass or not. Maybe it will make Him think twice about Mr. Farah and his war pigs.
