Democrats are livid over Karl Rove's complaint that liberals reacted to the 9/11 attacks by urging "understanding" for terrorists.
But that was exactly the advice offered by ex-President Clinton, delivered in an address to Georgetown University less than two months after the attacks.
"First of all, terror, the killing of noncombatants for economic, political, or religious reasons has a very long history - as long as organized combat itself," Clinton lectured. "Those of us who come from various European lineages are not blameless."
Then the ex-president catalogued the terrorist abuses perpetrated by Europeans and Americans on Jews, Muslims and people of color.
"Indeed, in the first Crusade, when the Christian soldiers took Jerusalem, they first burned a synagogue with 300 Jews in it, and proceeded to kill every woman and child who was Muslim on the Temple mound," he noted.
"Here in the United States, we were founded as a nation that practiced slavery and slaves were, quite frequently, killed even though they were innocent."
The U.S. "looked the other way," Clinton charged, "when significant numbers of Native Americans were dispossessed and killed to get their land or their mineral rights or because they were thought of as less than fully human and we are still paying the price today."
By the time Mr. Clinton was done with his terrorism history lesson, it was clear America got what it deserved on 9/11.
Why is Clinton keeping his virgins waiting?
Absolutely, I guess they think we can't READ either. or know how to use the Search feature on our computers. DUMS are soooo predictable.
Democrats are the party of terrorists. They prove it every day.
All I know is that I am sick of the media shoving a microphone into that talking anus's face, every time a subject is brought up.
Bill Clinton, that great authority on military history and tactics. Can you imagine getting hit with aterrorist attack and having this idiot lecture you about the long tradition of such attacks.
Tomorrow, the Rats will be squealing about bringing up the past and taking their words out of context. Truth sucks.
sounds like the Queen is playing therapist to me!
BTW, I highly enjoyed brit's roundtable. Fred and brit looked like they were in high spirits. Mort and Mara are falling apart. Rove and Prez are masters are this rope-a-dope strategy.
Sounds suspiciously like the garbage they are trying to put up at the twin towers site.
I still like bad hairpiece Trumps idea!
Who will be the first to not recall? My bet - the Beast...
You have to die a martyr to get the virgin option. Clinton will have Hillary and Reno waiting for him.
The Democrats are spread disinformation just like Osama bin Laden said they should.
No mention of his bang-up job in Rwanda? I wonder why?
and to this..
"..we are still paying the price today."
And we need to do something, I will say again, about the schools.
I saw a story the other day about a kid in a school in one of these Madrassas who was taught everything about the Koran and he was a very admirable young man, the kind of person you'd like to have in your family.
He got up at four o'clock every morning to pray, he could answer any conceivable question about the Koran.
He had good character, but a poisoned mind. He was taught that no man every walked on the moon but that dinosaurs existed because Americans and Jews re-created them to devour Muslims.
But he was a good kid. He didn't teach himself that.
Sounds like Clinton has been reading the Alqaeda manuals again. Remember that we were attacked 5 times while he was president and all he did was try to arrest people. Hmmm, didn't something just publicly saying something about that subject????
The Democrats hate being exposed for what they are.
Speaking of rope-a-dope, what was wrong with Mara's eye? It looked like she had gone a few rounds with somebody, and lost.
"You have to die a martyr to get the virgin option. Clinton will have Hillary and Reno waiting for him."
LOL...and, that will be an appropriate reward for the life he has lived on earth.
BTW,Re: not voting for Bill and planning never to vote Republican again as noted in your tagline, I hope you aren't risking joining Bill in the afterlife by having given us Blank Lincoln and short-of-the Mark Pryor. ;)
Not a resident of that state since I graduated high school almost 40 year ago. I now happily reside in NC.
