It's important to keep hating those who wonder why our enemies hate us. There's slow learning, and then there are those who still embody the repulsive doltishness seen right after September 11 where some blamed the country that sustained unimaginable bloodshed for daring to be relatively permissive.
Those who feel compelled to apologize for liberty continue to puzzle why we're so wretched, but they're sure we painted a target on ourselves. Winning sides don't ask how we're supposed to placate our enemies, and they certainly don't conclude their own culture is illegitimate because a sliver of fellow citizens wear unflattering outfits at discount stores or choose to watch shows starring people famous for being untalented.
Sickos persist in thinking that the victims are those who created victims. Most egregiously, the Boston bombers were apparently so oppressed that they had to lash out in a limb- and life-destroying manner. Note who pondered what we did as a society to radicalize those otherwise peaceful Muslims for your party invitation blacklist. That's unless you feel our stinginess meant that we didn't hand their family enough welfare to buy protection from attack.
The perverse tendency to self-loathe is manifested most horrifyingly in America by those who think we have to qualify the freedom to live as we wish. We shouldn't care at all why the wicked hope to extinguish us.
Both our enemies and their apologists loathe us for living not in a certain manner but however we please. We strive to have no guidelines except to not murder or take things from each other, unlike our purportedly strict enemies. How offensive that we're not proscribed from leisure activities, not to mention engaging in such outrages as voting and letting women show their cheekbones.
Barbarians don't dig wusses any more than chicks do. Barack Obama did learn many radical lessons during the '90s, but not just from lunatic racists and bombers of federal institutions. Worst of all, he uses the Friends cast as a standard for manliness. Whining about how we must make the dark world adore us attempts to prove our worthiness by acting like castration victims who secretly enjoyed it. President Ross is going to have to mope that nobody appreciates how his only side is his sensitive one.
Our current policy of begging to please accept appeasement neither keeps us safe nor makes our enemies embrace us. Either medieval Cro-Magnons haven't heard the war is over or they've finally read the news scrolls and refuse to care that we don't wish to fight any longer. The assumption that Muslims possess uncontrollable rage over the slightest perceived slight is a scary reflection of the faith if it's true and of the patronizing pacifists who accept it as doctrine if it's false.
Life must be tough for despicable lunatics who can't decide between whether villains didn't commit the crimes of which they're accused or if they're heroes for assaulting the innocent. Do the most doltish of dunces want to free Jahar because they think he didn't do it or are sick enough to embrace his unbearably hideous assault? Is Mumia a framed victim or someone who stuck it to society by executing a police officer? Their blogs are never clear.
Expect eternal vagueness from the same monstrous dopes who think America both deserved September 11 and also perpetrated it. If the latter is true, the world's fringe should have begun admiring us for our self-loathing.
Don't like our apology for you attacking us? Here, have another. There are countless outrages about Benghazi including pretending the war on al-Qaeda is ended, acting as if extra security would be seen as hostile, pretending that sending help wouldn't have helped, proclaiming that a video protest got our ambassador killed, and shrugging that [bleep] happens. But the biggest frightening philosophical tip-off was when our president apologized for Islam prophet-slanders enabled by hateful elements such as Fox News and the First Amendment.
Obama won't comment on, say, Kermit Gosnell murdering the most innocent victims possible for sport and profit, but he has an opinion about which Americans can criticize which religions. If nothing else, Islamists disrespect him for his treacherous sacklessness.
Appeasement is manifested in blaming your own alleged side for failing to bow with sufficient force to reach and grasp the ankles. And all the pondering about how to change to please jerks may not quite be fruitful or prudent. If anyone hasn't noticed, enemy piles of garbage disguised as humans still hate us despite twice-electing the cool president, and him, for that matter.
Part of being an adult is accepting the simple truth that there are evil bastards who despise you for no good reason or sometimes precisely because there's no good reason. Jerks who hate you may at least respect you for not caring about their opinion and making it clear you're willing to crack skulls. Asking why they're aiming their shrapnel at us is like apologizing that our surrender flag isn't white enough.
There's never going to be an understandable reason why contemporary cavemen picked a war, unless you count committing the crime of existing. What's not helping the victory effort are affectedly contrite phonies who think it's good our supposed faults have been highlighted. The administration that allegedly wants to world to admire us could start by not treating allies like compost. The only thing worse than such self-loathing is its practitioners assuming everyone hates themselves as much as they do.
