Michael Berg Is Insane
Judson Cox, May 17, 2004
Few people take Michael Savage seriously when he claims "liberalism is a mental disease." But, how else would you describe a man who, after watching al Qaida cut off his sons head, blames President Bush and describes his sons murderers as "sick people" who have "some good in them"? How do liberals like Mr. Berg blame President Bush for al Qaida killing three thousand people on 9-11? Do the terrorists bear none of the blame -- are they also sick people with some good in them? How can liberals equate the deaths of over half a million Iraqis, tortured and killed by Saddam Hussein, to the deviant actions of 12 American prison guards? How can they continue to deny Saddams links to al Qaida?
U.S. District Court judge Harold Baer, has made a legal finding that Iraq was behind the 9-11 attacks. His ruling was upheld by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
According to Czech intelligence, Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi intelligence agents in Prague just prior to the 9-11 attacks.
Papers found in Iraqi intelligence headquarters document Saddam's efforts to establish a relationship with al-Qaida. Osama bin Ladens top aid visited Iraq in 1998 at Saddams request.
How can they say that military courts are insufficient to punish 12 prison guards, but too harsh for terrorists and enemy combatants? How is it that they always find excuses for the actions of our enemies, but always manage to condemn our soldiers? Why do they insist that every picture of every act of abuse committed by 12 American prison guards be made public to make America look as bad as possible, but do everything in their power to prevent everything from the 9-11 footage to the execution of Nick Berg from being shown? Why will they not admit that we are at war with an enemy that seeks to destroy us? How can they contend that the war in Iraq is a racist, imperialist "war for oil," when our dead lay piled in the streets, killed by terrorists loyal to, and funded by, Saddam Hussein?
Liberals insist that America is complicit in a "cycle of violence." They see America as the aggressor, much as do the al Qaida terrorists who beheaded Nick Berg, supposedly in retaliation for the Abu Grhaib prison abuses. What was the beheading of Daniel Pearl in retaliation for? How about the four American contractors who were burned, mutilated and dragged through the streets of Fallujah? What was the motivation for retaliation behind 9-11, the USS Cole bombing, the Marines killed in Yemen in 1992, the first World Trade Center attack, Khobar Towers, the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania or any other example from a list of Islamic terrorist bloodshed too long to enumerate? Liberals, like Madeline Albright, agree with the terrorists that all of these attacks against innocent Americans are in retaliation for the Crusades at their root!
Lets look at the Crusades:
Muslims invaded Europe , and imposed their religion upon Westerners by force. Christian armies drove them back. The Crusades lasted about 200 years, but freed Europe from Islamic rule for nearly 1,000 years. Islamic fascism has always been the aggressor.
It is gut check time for America . I urge each of you to watch the video of Nick Bergs execution, and Daniel Pearls and 9-11. See the true face of our enemy. They have vowed to destroy us, and they are doing so one person and 3,000 at a time. They dont care if you are Republican or Democrat, capitalist or socialist, Christian or an enlightened liberal atheist college professor. They will kill you even if you are a movie star or a politician. If liberalism means that you cannot recognize, condemn or fight your enemy (or support your own country), then liberalism is a mental disease -- it is suicidal not only for the individual, but it will kill us all if we allow it to undermine our will to fight and win. There is something very wrong with a man who would denounce the Patriot Act and condemn President Bush after watching terrorists behead his son. Michael Berg is either insane or he is a traitor!

...I take comfort that when they did the awful thing they did, they weren't quite as in to it as they might have been. I am sure that they came to admire him.
I am sure that the one who wielded the knife felt Nick's breath on his hand and knew that he had a real human being there. I am sure that the others looked into my son's eyes and got at least a glimmer of what the rest of the world sees. And I am sure that these murderers, for just a brief moment, did not like what they were doing. ...
The man is either a regular psychopath or a psychopathic liar.
And I am sure this guys needs a reality check.
Besides that...his little scraggly excuse of a beard it pathetic.
it pathetic = is pathetic.
Easy, THEY are our enemy who seeks to destroy us.
Was Nick Berg forced to go to Iraq and hang out with these thugs or did he go over there for a Quick Thrill and a Fast Buck...
He's either insane or ON SOMEBODY'S PAYROLL.
Liberalism is a mental disease! Cases in point; Pelosi, Kennedy, Garafalo, the NOW gang and the Naral nazis.......nuff said? Is for me!
Liberals cannot admit that pure evil exists. For them to do so would negate their 'moral equivalency' arguments.
Daddy Berg would rather maintain his liberal beliefs that admit that pure evil in the form of thugs murdered his son.
Daddy Berg would rather politicize the murder of his son. The trouble is, his argument becomes disjointed at that point. Nick Berg was in Iraq at his own volition. For Daddy Berg to blame anyone other than the murderous thugs is disingenuous. That is like blaming the cook at a fast food restaurant because your lawn is overgrown with weeds.
It appears that Iraq's function as a "lunatic magnet" is working...
Not only does it seem effective in attracting wannabe Jihadists -- it also has an attraction to the liberal believers that Islam is a religion of peace -- from whick one can make a fast buck....
We haven't heard the entire Berg story yet...
It is irrational to reject absolute evil in the hooded, barbaric savages that beheaded Nick Berg while accusing the the American Military, the American President and his staff, and Americanism in general, of absolute evil.
Michale Berg may not be insane, but he is definitely irrational.
And a traitor.
You're talking Michael Moore aren't you? I thought Nick Berg's father was tall and thin, the aged hippy look. Regardless of looks, both are nuts. I can't imagine a father giving his son's murderers a pass because of his politics.
Michael Berg is part of the Enemy Within...
Not by a long shot. Go here for more questions and a possible answer:
Sounds like you discribed Michael Moore. Michael Berg has an agenda, I find him disgusting. Feel very bad about the loss his son, but for Michael Berg to come out and say the things he has is appalling.
I'm glad this was brought up.
I have not heard mention of why he was a blond haired blue eyed clean shaven man........and when the terrorist had him in his orange prison suit......why was his hair black and he had a black beard?
Why did he want to look like one of them? Has anyone heard anything about this?
In the movie, the "Patriot", the accepted way to fight
was to stand, dressed in a fancy uniform, facing your
enemy and let them shoot you in the head with a cannon.
I think the military leaders must have been the first
liberals. - When the Patriot said, "These generals (who
fight like this) are fools", perhaps he was talking to
