Allow me to sum up the homeland security strategy of America's do-nothing
brigade, led by the armchair generals at the New York Times and ACLU
First, bar law enforcement at all levels from taking race, ethnicity,
national origin, and religion into account when assessing radical Islamic
terror threats. (But continue to allow the use of those factors to ensure
"diversity" in public college admissions, contracting, and police and fire
Second, institute the "Eenie-meenie-minie-moe" random search program at all
subways, railways, and bus stations.
Third, open the borders, sabotage all immigration enforcement efforts, and
scream "Racist" at any law-abiding American who protests.
Fourth, sue. Sue. Sue.
Fifth, yell "Connect the dots!" while rebuilding and strengthening the
walls that prevent information-sharing between the CIA, State Department,
Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and other key
Sixth, hang the white flag and declare victory.
Seventh, sit back and wait to blame the President for failing to take
aggressive, preventative measures when the next terrorist attack hits.
The hindsight hypocrisy of the civil liberties absolutists never ceases to
amaze. And their selective outrage over privacy violations never ceases to
aggravate. Last Friday, the New York Times splashed classified information
about the National Security Agency's surveillance of international
communications between suspected al Qaeda operatives and their contacts all
over the front page in a naked attempt to sabotage the Patriot Act. This
Tuesday, the newspaper continued to stir fears of "spying on all innocent
Americans" by recycling old ACLU complaints about FBI monitoring of radical
environmental groups, anti-war activists, and some Muslim leaders and groups.
Alarmists in the Beltway want investigations (though not of the leakers who
fed the Times its story). The civil liberties sky is falling, they say, and
never have Americans been subjected to such invasive snooping.
Funny enough, another story about unprecedented domestic spying measures
broke a week before the Times's stunt. But neither the Times, nor the ACLU,
nor the Democrat Party leadership had a peep to say about the reported
infringements on Americans' civil liberties. Sen. Charles Schumer (by the
way, Chuck, how's that apology to Lt. Gov. Michael Steele over his stolen
credit report coming along?) did not rush to the cameras to call the
alleged privacy breach "shocking." Sen. Robert Byrd did not awake from his
slumber to decry the adoption of "the thuggish practices of our enemies."
The indignant New York Times editorial board did not call for heads to roll.
That's because the targets of the spy scandal that didn't make the
front-page headlines were politically incorrect right-wing extremists.
According to the McCurtain Daily Gazette, in the days after the 1995
Oklahoma City bombing, the U.S. government used a spy satellite to gather
intelligence on a white separatist compound in Oklahoma. The paper obtained
a Secret Service log showing that on May 2, 1995, two weeks after the April
19 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building that killed 168 people,
the FBI was trying to locate suspects for questioning.
Investigators zeroed in on the compound in nearby Elohim City. "Satellite
assets have been tasked to provide intelligence concerning the compound,"
the document said, according to the Gazette and Associate Press. The
Gazette noted that "America's spy-satellite program is jointly under the
control of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Department of
Defense (DoD). Targeting decisions are classified; however, persons
familiar with the project say any domestic use of these satellites is
barred by agreements between the CIA and DoD." Photo-reconnaissance
satellites that gather intelligence from space usually target hostile
governments and foreign terrorists. "The domestic use of a military
satellite for domestic spying is a violation of DoD and CIA regulations
regarding the proper use of top-secret national security satellites," the
But with the exception of a brief Associated Press recap, the story
received absolutely no mainstream media attention. No civil liberties
circus. No White House press corps pandemonium.
The Left believes the government should do whatever it takes to fight
terroristsbut only when the terrorists look like Timothy McVeigh. If
you're on the MCI Friends and Family plan of Osama bin Laden and Abu
Zubaydah, you're home free.

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
