Today is the beginning of what I hope will be a new feature here with the MoxArgon Group. I call it The Liberal Mind, where we dip our toes into the writhing snakepit of modern liberal/leftist thought.
Today, we look at the concept of treason.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary TREASON is...
• noun the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill or overthrow the sovereign or government.Sounds pretty clear cut, doesn't it.
Now here's a recent quote about treason by a prominent liberal politician and 'activist':
"This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors." -Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Now that's a pretty strong accusation.
Who was he talking about?
Let's look at the possible suspects.
For not finding a covert anti-terrorist operation it didn't feel the need to expose, and turning the CIA into an organization with more leaks than the Titanic?
Could he have been talking about....
Lynne Stewart: A lawyer and "civil rights activist" knowingly passed messages from her client, a convicted terrorist, to his followers on the outside. Actions that resulted in people getting killed in the name of radical Islam?
Was Robert Kennedy Jr. talking about her?
Could it have been....Newsweek Magazine: whose bogus story of "flushed Korans" story sparked worldwide riots leading to hundreds of deaths around the world and giving propaganda fuel to Islamic extremists which is still being used to this day?
Was he talking about....
Medea Benjamin: Professional anti-war activist whose group Code Pink gave $600,000 in aid to pimp turned Al Qaida terrorist kingpin Abu Musab Al Zarqawi in a direct violation of American law and common decency?
Mr. Kennedy wasn't talking about any of them, or anyone like them.
In fact he was talking about people who refuse to worshipAl Gore
According to Kennedy not wanting to give your complete loyalty, unquestioning obedience, and, most importantly, money to Al Gore, who is not the leader of any sovereign nation, is a betrayal of Mother Earth and must be treated as treason.
That kind of says something about where their heads are at, doesn't it?
So until next time, keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.
