152 Business Hours Since Karl Rove Indictment
See Karl Rove above being frogwalked across the White House lawn? It happened just 152 business hours ago when Karl Rove was indicted on May 12. Don't believe the LACK of any news about this momentous event in the news. Pied Piper Pitt's TruthOut has assured us that is has already happened and that they still stand behind the Jason Leopold report that they published. So for a certain someone in DUmmieland, June 12 isn't a very good day at all. And I don't just mean one William Rivers Pitt. I am also referring to Head DUmmie Skinner who had to suffer through a week of fawning media overcoverage of the Kos meetup in Las Vegas. Yes, Skinner, even though the Daily Kos began a couple of years after you gave birth to DUmmieland as the main "progressive" forum on the Web, the KOssack KOmmies have STOLEN the thunder from you. One can only imagine the pain Skinner went thru this past week watching as a frustrated bystander at all the attention lavished on the KOmmies. Oh, and now for my SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: In the future, the DUmmie FUnnies will feature the KOmmies much more often. One BIG reason is that I have noticed a whole bunch of hits to the DUmmie FUnnies from the KOmmie site due to a downthread link to this blog placed in the discussion about Armando being outed as a (GASP!) corporate lawyer. So the DUmmies now have competition from the KOmmies in the DUFU auditioning process.
Now back to Pitt. Apparently he is not unaware about this Rove (non)indictment anniversary date so he is continuing to flood the zone with a bunch of non-controversial Zarqawi threads. Well, they would be controversial in any normal setting but in DUmmieland, to say that the death of Al-Zarqawi doesn't mean much is like saying you are in favor of Mom's apple pie in any other place. Pitt's shtick is to continue posting "non-controversial" threads about favored leftwing topics while conveniently ignoring the BIG STORY of his life: the FLAT OUT statement that Karl Rove had been indicted on May 12. Oh, and Pitt might want to also save up some Zarqawi material for a thread this Friday when he will need to divert attention from the one year anniversary of his Day When Everything Finally Changed. So, all in all, today isn't a very good day for at least 2 DUmmies in DUmmieland. But wait, THERE'S MORE!!! Has everyone forgotten about PDA, the Progressive Democrats of America Organization in which Pitt was one of the ringleaders? Apparently he has become a non-person there since even though there is still a section there titled, "Blog By William Rivers Pitt," the Pitt himself hasn't posted on his own Blog since April. To make matters even WORSE, all the PDA players are today in Washington, D.C. for a big "Take Back America" leftwing conference which features thousands of "progressives" including Robert Redford. One "progressive" distinctly absent from this 3-day conference is Pied Piper Pitt himself since his name is notably ABSENT from this PDA REPORT of this event about who among them will be attending. So let us now watch Pitt trying desperately to bury his woes with another meaningless Zarqawi THREAD titled, "Zarqawi was a symptom. The occupation is the disease." As usual, Pied Piper Pitt's pittiful attempt to divert attention away from Rove's May 12 indictment is in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, giving a shoutout to all the KOmmies out there, is in the [brackets]:
Zarqawi was a symptom. The occupation is the disease.
[Leopold was a sympton. Pitt is the disease.]
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead. We've turned a corner in Iraq. Again.
[al-Zarqawi has been dead less than 24 business hours.]
We turned a corner back in 2003, or so we were told, with the capture of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. "For the Ba'athist holdouts largely responsible for the current violence," said George W. Bush in formal remarks after Hussein's capture, "there will be no return to the corrupt power and privilege they once held. For the vast majority of Iraqi citizens who wish to live as free men and women, this event brings further assurance that the torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever."
[You turned the corner last night to Bukowski's for another meeting with TIN-FOIL HAT DAN where you plied him with drinks so you could use him as your personal "Forget About Rove Report" prop.]
That was three long years ago, and despite all the triumphalist crowing after Hussein's capture, nothing has changed. Indeed, matters are far worse now than when they put the bag on him in 2003. Empty elections have been held since then, in which most of the candidates were anonymous, because they feared assassination. The corrupt power and privilege once held by Hussein's people has been deftly transferred to hand-picked Iraqi leaders like Ahmad Chalabi, who cower behind bunkered walls while the nation they supposedly lead tears at itself, and to petroleum corporations like Halliburton that steal with both hands.
[Wouldn't you just love to give that speech in Washington D.C. where your own PDA organization is meeting at the Take Back America Conference? Maybe you should send them a telegram: "Take Back Pitt."]
As for the torture chambers and secret police, well...the Bush administration set those up a while ago. The horrors of Abu Ghraib, and the secret "renditions" of prisoners, are perfectly legal, you see. The Attorney General says so.
[Is that the same Attorney General who is keeping Patrick Fitzgerald from making public his ultra-secret May 12 Karl Rove indictment?]
Now that Zarqawi is dead - again - many would have us believe this is a stirring victory. To be sure, the Shi'ite civilians massacred by Zarqawi can take comfort that his attacks have been brought to an end. But to see this as an end to the violence is to buy into a distinctly American view of the Iraq occupation, a view that would have us believe that it is one villain masterminding all the carnage.
[Karl Rove? Not to worry. He was indicted on May 12.]
This simply isn't true.
[A lot of folks are waiting for you to make that statement about the TruthOut article.]
A report from the UK Telegraph last year quoted a number of anonymous intelligence sources who stated, flatly, that Zarqawi was not the all-encompassing boogeyman he was portrayed to be. "We were basically paying up to $10,000 a time to opportunists, criminals and chancers who passed off fiction and supposition about Zarqawi as cast-iron fact, making him out as the linchpin of just about every attack in Iraq," said one source in the report. "Back home this stuff was gratefully received and formed the basis of policy decisions. We needed a villain, someone identifiable for the public to latch on to, and we got one."
[That latter statement sounds like the DUmmie attitude towards Karl Rove who was indicted on May 12.]
Said another source in the report, "From the information we have gathered, we have to conclude that Zarqawi is more myth than man. He isn't in the caliber of what many politicians want to believe he is."
[Karl Rove is more myth than man. Isn't it great that he was indicted on May 12?]
More recently, on April 10, 2006, the Washington Post ran a detailed article titled "Military Plays Up Role of Zarqawi." The opening paragraph reads, "The U.S. military is conducting a propaganda campaign to magnify the role of the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, according to internal military documents and officers familiar with the program. The effort has raised his profile in a way that some military intelligence officials believe may have overstated his importance and helped the Bush administration tie the war to the organization responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."
[April 10? Wasn't that right around the time of your LAST PDA.Org Blog post? And speaking of PDA, what do you think all those PDA folks are doing today at the "Take Back America" conference? Besides the copious quantities of munchies and FREE BOOZE being served up I bet there is a lot of networking going on among the "progressives." Why, I bet that conference is a great place to network your way into a campaign job. Too bad you couldn't be there, Pitt, but PDA just could't fit you into their invite list.]
"One internal briefing, produced by the U.S. military headquarters in Iraq," continued the Post piece, "said that (Brig. Gen. Mark) Kimmitt had concluded that, 'The Zarqawi PSYOP program is the most successful information campaign to date.'"
[Meanwhile, the Pied Piper Pitt DUmmie ingratiation PSYOP program isn't going so hot due to its utter TRANSPARENCY.]
Our leaders would love us to believe that what is happening in Iraq is black-and-white, an issue of evil-doers attempting to shatter the hopes of democracy. Unfortunately, too many Americans buy into this Etch-a-Sketch view of our policies and practices there. The reality behind the bloodshed is far more discouraging, and hued with many shades of gray.
[FREE BOOZE at the Take Back America Conference. Much better than shelling out money at Bukowski's now that your TruthOut expense account has dried up. Maybe you can talk Jason Leopold into buying you a drink.]
Those who fight and kill in Iraq did not do so because Zarqawi ordered them to. They fight because they are Sunnis with a generational hatred for Shi'ites, or because they are Shi'ites with a generational hatred for Sunnis, or because they are Kurds defending their turf, or because they don't want Iran running their country, or because they are defending their neighborhood, or because they are settling old grudges, or because they are opportunistic criminals looking to make a buck. In many instances, those who fight and kill in Iraq do so because they absolutely will not tolerate an occupying force under any circumstances.
[A little William Rivers Pitt history lesson there. Too bad he can't go back to teaching history or any other subject due to some schoolgirl snitches.]
The death of Zarqawi will not change any of this. The violence will continue, because the violence has nothing to do with him. He was a symptom, not a cause. Think of Iraq as a cancer patient. By killing Zarqawi, we have indeed cut out one tumor. But the cancer cells have metastasized, and have spread, and there will be a dozen more tumors to replace the one that has been removed. At the end of the day, the occupation itself is the cancer, and until it is removed, the tumors will continue to fester and grow.
[Much better to think of YOU as a mental patient transparently dissembling before us on the Web. And now on to the other DUmmies on this thread...]
With the demise of this boogeyman... do you think there will now be another attack in the US to "avenge" his death? I honestly believe the thugs in power will exploit this somehow...on a grand scale!
[It would be masterminded by Karl Rove to divert attention from his May 12 indictment.]
what will it take for all of us to stand up against
all we KNOW to be criminal, corrupt and insane?
[Another Jason Leopold report exposing the EVIL Bush regime?]
If we're serious about winning, we need to quit sitting back and whining "LIE LIE LIE" regardless of whether it was true or not. We don't need complaints, we need solutions.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
They lie about everything... Haven't you figured that much out?
[Only Jason Leopold is telling the truth. Or rather the TruthOut.]
I would speak more generally, and say that Terrorism is the Symptom of the Disease of US arrogance and greed!
[The obligatory "Blame the USA for 9/11" post.]
