Saving lives in theory and practice The left's reaction to the GOP debate

“They are crea­tures of that mis­er­able sort who loudly pro­claim that tor­ture is too good for their ene­mies and then give tea and cig­a­rettes to the first wounded Ger­man pilot who turns up at the back door. Do what you will, there is going to be some benev­o­lence, as well as some mal­ice, in your patient’s soul. The great thing is to direct the mal­ice to his imme­di­ate neigh­bours whom he meets every day and to thrust his benev­o­lence out to the remote cir­cum­fer­ence, to peo­ple he does not know. The mal­ice thus becomes wholly real and the benev­o­lence largely imag­i­nary.

I love human­ity, it’s peo­ple I can’t stand!
Lucy Van Pelt

If you’ve been fol­low­ing the cov­er­age of last night’s debate you;ve seen the left beat­ing their breasts on the cru­elty of the tea party repub­li­cans based on a Wolf Blitzer’s hypo­thet­i­cal ques­tion con­cern­ing a sick per­son who didn’t buy health insurance.



Talk­ing Points memo
and Morn­ing Joe have both run with the clip con­trast­ing the cal­lous tea party peo­ple with their own love of human­ity. Joe Scar­bor­ough and Mika made it a point to be shocked and dis­gusted the crowd’s reac­tion while scoff­ing at Con­gress­man Paul’s asser­tion that com­mu­nity not gov­ern­ment would take care of this imag­i­nary person.

Strangely enough in all their self right­eous bleat­ing, they man­aged to ignore a more direct ques­tion con­cern­ing life and death posed by an Afghan Immi­grant named Sahar Hekmati:

As the next pres­i­dent of the United States, what will you do to secure safety and pro­tec­tion for the women and chil­dren of Afghanistan from the radicals?”

The mur­der and oppres­sion of Afghan women is well doc­u­mented.

This mag­a­zine cover made the Morn­ing Joe crew very uncom­fort­able at the time, but the mem­o­ries of that day some­how didn’t bub­ble up today, they were too con­cerned with hypo­thet­i­cal sick peo­ple than a real­ity in oppo­si­tion to their Afghanistan position

This is not unusual for the left, we hear peo­ple with armed body­guards decry­ing guns, we have peo­ple bemoan­ing their low tax rates as their com­pany dodges taxes, we are scolded on global warm­ing by peo­ple with giant car­bon foot­prints.

The reac­tion today of our media bet­ters and the left hor­ri­bly shocked at the fate of a non exis­tent per­son while hold­ing a more nuanced posi­tion on the fate of Afghan women like Aisha speaks volumes.

After all to the left, beliefs speak louder than actions.

“They are creatures of that miserable sort who loudly proclaim that torture is too good for their enemies and then give tea and cigarettes to the first wounded German pilot who turns up at the back door. Do what you will, there is going to be some benevolence, as well as some malice, in your patient’s soul. The great thing is to direct the malice to his immediate neighbours whom he meets every day and to thrust his benevolence out to the remote circumference, to people he does not know. The malice thus becomes wholly real and the benevolence largely imaginary.
Screwtape Letter 6

I love humanity, it’s people I can’t stand!
Lucy Van Pelt

If you’ve been following the coverage of last night’s debate you;ve seen the left beating their breasts on the cruelty of the tea party republicans based on a Wolf Blitzer’s hypothetical question concerning a sick person who didn’t buy health insurance.



Talking Points memo
and Morning Joe have both run with the clip contrasting the callous tea party people with their own love of humanity. Joe Scarborough and Mika made it a point to be shocked and disgusted the crowd’s reaction while scoffing at Congressman Paul’s assertion that community not government would take care of this imaginary person.

Strangely enough in all their self righteous bleating, they managed to ignore a more direct question concerning life and death posed by an Afghan Immigrant named Sahar Hekmati:

“As the next president of the United States, what will you do to secure safety and protection for the women and children of Afghanistan from the radicals?”

The murder and oppression of Afghan women is well documented.

Not a hypothetical person

This magazine cover made the Morning Joe crew very uncomfortable at the time, but the memories of that day somehow didn’t bubble up today, they were too concerned with hypothetical sick people than a reality in opposition to their Afghanistan position

This is not unusual for the left, we hear people with armed bodyguards decrying guns, we have people bemoaning their low tax rates as their company dodges taxes, we are scolded on global warming by people with giant carbon footprints.

The reaction today of our media betters and the left horribly shocked at the fate of a non existent person while holding a more nuanced position on the fate of Afghan women like Aisha speaks volumes.

After all to the left, beliefs speak louder than actions.
