FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

The Distorted "View"

I typically don't post anything concerning the absurd political commentary by celebrities. The reason is, basically...I don't give a damn what they have to say about our nation's policies. To them I say, "You are actors and musicians. Stick to acting and making music."

However, this is one of the few times that I will break that rule. This statement is just too stupid to pass up. It comes from the ever intelligent Rosie O' Donnell. Yesterday, on The View, she started in, again, on the Iraq War. They discuss the war EVERYDAY. And, everyday, we get to hear just a little bit more of Rosie's idiocy. Yesterday, I believe she peaked. The only way that she could make a more asinine statement now is if she joined the Flat Earth Society.

She began her tirade yesterday with the usual...the UN is the "world's voice" and they should determine our foreign policy, if you disagree with the Iraq War you are labeled "unpatriotic," etc. This is not out of the ordinary for Rosie. But, here is the statement that tops it all:

"Well, you have two choices in life, Elisabeth. Faith or fear. Faith or fear, that's your choice. You can walk through life believing in the goodness of the world or walk through life afraid of anyone who thinks different than you and trying to convert them to your way of thinking...get away from the fear. Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers."

There you have it. Don't fear the people who flew planes into the twin towers. Don't fear those who cry "Allah Akbar" while beheading American civilians like Daniel Pearle. Don't fear those who walk into a crowd of civilians with a bomb strapped to their chest and murder the innocent. Don't fear those that say:

"There will be continuing enmity until everyone believes in Allah. We will not meet the enemy halfway. There will be no room for dialogue with them."

"Islam does not make a truce with unbelief, but rather confronts it...dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing, and destruction, and the diplomacy of the cannon and machine gun."

Don’t fear these people. They are just Mothers and Fathers.

By the way, the day after Rosie was proclaiming the "goodness of the world" and telling us not to fear "those that think differently than us," we get this little tidbit from the UK:

BBC - MI5 tracking 30 UK terror plots


You know what, Rosie? These people do think differently than us. Here is what they think:

“We love death. The US loves life. That is the difference between us two.”
- Osama bin Laden

"Every American man is an enemy to us."
- Osama bin Laden

"Hostility toward America is a religious duty, and we hope to be rewarded for it by God . . . . I am confident that Muslims will be able to end the legend of the so-called superpower that is America."
- Osama bin Laden




Should we take this threat seriously? Or, should we just sit back and realize that they think "differently" than us?

Just one more quote:

"Of course Americans should vote Democrat...It is time that the American people support those who want to take them out of this Iraqi mud"
-Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group

It seems Rosie doesn't think so differently than they do, after all.
