I really do hate everybody today.
General McChrystal got a little drunk and a little frustrated and let a leftist douchebag listen in.
I think he deserves to be fired for this. It’s really important to assert ruthless civilian control over the military.
Of course, that’s not why Obama fired him. It was basically an un-friending. Obama didn’t do it out of principle but out of pique.
Nobody in Obama’s administration gets the principle involved.
Nobody on the left respects the rule of law or the genius of the US Constitution.
I was listening to Stephanie Miller the other morning, talking about this, and she and her callers all assumed that the right wing would rally round McChrystal. They were wrong. I switched over to Beck when they said that and he was calling for McChrystal’s head. AM 570 in Seattle, another conservative station, were also in full bay to take down McChrystal. They were saying, yeah, the substance was right, but you can’t let that undermine the principle of civilian control of the military.
This is really why I fear, loathe and hate the left: The idea that the rule of law is really important goes right over their heads. To the left, all means are justified by “Imagine” ends. Even Glenn Beck understands how important it is not to lynch the referees when your team loses. But nobody on the left gets how important sportsmanship is as a metaphor for civilization.
Leftist feminists excuse Bill Clinton taking advantage of a naive intern. They have trashed every woman their Arkansas Knight in Shining Armor raped, stuck a cigar up or ruined her dress. They ridicule Monica and scoff at Juanita and gossip about Paula. They’re worse than those guys who cheered while Jodie Foster got raped on the pool table. I’m talking about you, everyone at MS magazine and NOW. When your frat boy president raped your sisters, you circled the wagons and threw the victims out into the sagebrush. Gloria Steinem, you’re an evil Harry Seaward whooping it up while real women get really raped by your frat boy President crush. Seriously, Gloria Steinem is a contemptible human being. Just like most of her professional feminist harpy sisters.
In more contempt for rule of law, leftists will never admit that GWB won the 2000 election fair and square by the rules. They excoriate abuses of executive power under Bush and pray for them under Obama. They cheer Obama’s drone strikes on US citizens while mewling about Guantanomo (still open, by the way, under Obama, for how many years now?).
The Left has no principles. Seriously, they don’t. They reject principled, objective, self-disinterested thinking out of hand. That’s how white men think. The left has contempt for principles in the same way and for the same reasons that they have contempt for white men. Unlike wise Latina women, white men don’t have to self-promote their supposed wisdom. White men just git ‘er done.
Obama’s firing of McChrystal was coincidental with principle. Every now and then, a cheerleader finds an acorn. I used to give Obama every benefit of every doubt. Now, not so much.
