THE REAL ENEMY
So what was the real meaning of the Iraqi elections? Let's ask a couple of right-wing bloggers.
Here's Lee at Right-Thinking from the Left Coast:
On the day of the Iraqi election, we here at Right-Thinking from the Left Coast have a special message for all the nay-saying lefties who said this could never happen. To the Michael Moores and John Kerrys and Ted Kennedys of the world, who will view this momentous occasion through the bitter prism of their own partisan hatred. It is in honor of those brave Iraqi citizens, and on their behalf, that I send this message out to everyone who would rather have Iraq living in slavery.
[What follows is a purple-inked middle finger.]
Here's the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler:
If your ballpoint explodes tomorrow you'll have the perfect excuse to ink up your finger in solidarity with Iraqi voters. GOP bloggers.org asks you to wreck your pen and send in your photos. LC & IB Russ Emerson, at TACJammer already has his picture posted.
Of course your DNC coworkers might get a bit upset, but then the whole voting thing upsets them, especially since it undermines Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, and Pelosi. There was a day long ago when at least one wing of the DNC was opposed to violence, intimidation, and fear being used to keep voters from the polls. Of course that was back when the DNC had a rational wing instead of an infestation of socialist hippies reliving a mythical past in which the South had been a Republican stronghold. Now they so habitually attempt to scare voters to the polls that they've devolved into barking, race-mongering moonbats who cringe at the sight of dancing first time voters freed from oppression, turning out to vote their conscience in the face of continual death threats.
The very voters that hold up their blue fingers are the ones that Kerry and Kennedy dismiss with a wave of their patrician hands, because blue fingered Iraqis don't fit into their anti-American anti-democratic agenda.
And from the professional press, here's John Podhoretz in the New York Post:
WHEN you heard about the stunning success of the Iraqi elections, were you thrilled? Did you see it as a triumph for democracy and for the armed forces of the United States that have sacrificed and suffered and fought so valiantly over the past 18 months to get Iraq to this moment?
Or did you momentarily feel an onrush of disappointment because you knew, you just knew, that this was going to redound to the credit of George W. Bush? This means you, Michael Moore. I'm talking to you, Teddy Kennedy.
And not just to the two of you, but to all those who follow in your train.
There are literally millions of Americans who are unhappy today because millions of Iraqis went to the polls yesterday. And why? Because this isn't just a success for Bush. It's a huge win. It's a colossal vindication.
It's a big fat gigantic winning vindication of the guy that the Moores and Kennedys and millions of others still can't believe anybody voted for.
And they know it....
Freedom? Democracy? A possible end to the bloodshed? Yeah, those would be nice, but ... IN YOUR FACE, TEDDY KENNEDY!
And when they're not bashing Democrats or Michael Moore, they're bashing The New York Times or Europeans who aren't with the program or Reuters (yup, if you haven't been keeping track, Reuters is, according to the Right, part of the pro-Islamofascist fifth column).
Most conservatives are doing a somewhat better job of appearing high-minded, but really, this is the point for them. Terrorism isn't the real enemy. The insurgents aren't the real enemy. The real enemy is Western liberalism. We are what must be destroyed.
