Consumer Reports

Protestors, twits and The New World Order | They paraded around the world chanting such ditties as "Drop Bush, not bombs." They stood and applauded when the French Foreign Secretary gave his little "protect French Business interests in Iraq" speech at the United Nations Security Council.

They did these two things for three reasons: One, the protesters hate the United States of America, they hate George Bush and they hate Americans. That includes the Americans who protested.

Secondly, most of the protesters don't know their history and don't know that Iraq's Saddam Hussein is a total clone of Adolf Hitler.

Thirdly, most of the protesters, especially in France, Germany and Hollywood, are anti-Semitic, that means they hate Jewish people. That brings us back to the first reason-The United States supports Israel and the protesters don't, thus the protesters hate America.

Germany, Russia and the Mufti of Jerusalem perfected the persecution and murder of Jewish people in the 20th Century. The French, of course, not only surrendered to the Germans with hardly a whimper but they gleefully joined the Germans in rounding up Jews and sending them to their death in camps in Germany and Poland.

As for the anti-Semitic camp in Hollywood, is led by so-called Hollywood liberals like Susan Sarandon who asks on television, "What have the Iraqi people done to Americans?" Why didn't she ask what Iraq has done to Jews? They've killed them, they've fired deadly SCUD missiles into Israel that killed and injured Jews. They've paid families of "suicide/murderer" bombers who strapped bombs on their bodies and walked into innocent civilians and detonated their bombs and killed hundreds of Jews in Israel.

Baghdad and Iraq traditionally has been home to many Jews and Christians, the Catholic Chaldeans. So how does Saddam Hussein and his government treat these people? He has run Jews out of their own country. He has used Iraqi Christians as conscripted mine field clearers by making them walk at gunpoint through mine fields in the 8-year Iraq/Iran War.

Hundreds of thousands of these Iraqi Christians have fled Iraq and come to America. They live in Detroit and San Diego. They are good people, making it in the land of their dreams, unbothered by a dictatorial regime bent on killing every Jew and Christian within its borders.

Apparently, Hollywood has no idea that these thousands of Iraqis are here and happy. Hollywood rails about no-war but never asks real Iraqis if a war to dislodge Saddam Hussein is a "just war."

Joining Hollywood liberals and all those peaceniks who marched in protest to the coming war, are Congressman John Conyers and a couple of his congressional colleagues. They have filed a law suit that declares President Bush doesn't have the authority to attack Iraq.

That lawsuit will fail. Congress did grant the President authority to attack Iraq last fall. In fact, Senator John Kerry, candidate for President, even voted for it, so did Senate Minority leader, Tom Daschle.

In any event, the President of the United States is the only person who can execute foreign policy and can do so with the military as Commander-In- Chief.

Pipsqueak congress people, street demonstrators left over from the Sixties, Friends of Nicaraguan Culture (Sandinista supporters) former and current Communists and Socialists, anti-Semitic fanatics and intellectually challenged Hollywood actors like Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, George Clooney and a gaggle of others, notwithstanding, we will do what is right and we will dislodge Dictator Hussein and he can join Osama Bin Laden, hiding in some cave, or in an desolate unmarked grave.

Will this happen because he has weapons of mass destruction, or because he has refused to obey the United Nations? No, those are reasons, but not the real reason. September 11, 2001, is the reason. Saddam is just one target, out of thousands, who will be hunted down and driven deep into caves, or killed.

We may never match the 3000-plus people killed in the United States on September 11th in Iraq, Iran, Yemen or Afghanistan. But we will succeed in destroying and disrupting those who hate us as Americans and what we stand for, be they Islamic fanatics, North Koreans, German anti-Semites and unreconstructed French international minor leaguers who surrender to and collaborate with evil.

We will succeed because that is the New World Order. That New World Order started when Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence in 1775.
