America - Treason and Nazis

Victor Hanson writes the left's insane use of Hitler and Nazis to attack America and our troops may have dire consequences.

There is also an asymmetry in these slurs. Few mention that there really are monsters and mass killers living among us — the North Koreans who have starved 1 million of their own, Saddam's reign of terror that may have killed as many, and, of course, the Islamicist murderers who behead, blow up and torture. "Mein Kampf" still is selling well in some Arab capitals, not in Washington or New York.

So cowards such as officials of the Red Cross and Amnesty International, and, yes, American politicians, prefer to showboat the purported misdemeanors of those who are civilized and will listen to them, rather than to condemn the horrendous felonies of those who are barbaric and will not pay them heed.

As a result, the bar is lowering. In today's climate, Alfred Knopf has already published a novel about killing the president. Charlie Brooker writing in the Guardian in London prayed for another Lee Harvey Oswald to take out George W. Bush. Comedians, New York plays and art exhibits also bandy about assassination.

Each time a public official evokes Hitler to demonize the president, the American effort in Iraq or its conservative supporters, cheap rhetorical fantasy becomes only that much closer to a nightmarish reality where the unstable, here and abroad, act on the belief that America really is Hitler's Germany.

We will all soon reap what the ignorant are now sowing.

Hal Lindsey goes further and calls them traitors. A label I agree with.

The dictionary defines "sedition" as "speech or action promoting discontent or rebellion against a government." Title 18 of the U.S. Code Chapter 115 is titled, "Treason, Sedition and Subversive Activities." Title 18 defines "treason" as follows:

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death.

Isn't this exactly what Sen. Dick Durbin did? And he did it in time of war.

To recruit a new jihadist, al-Qaida need only convince him that America is an evil nation deserving of destruction. Today, an Islamic recruiter doesn't need to make stuff up about how evil America is, he just needs the transcript of a U.S. senator comparing his enemy to the most evil dictatorships in history to do it for him.

The left, anti-war types and Democrats are so deranged at their continuing downward spiral at the ballot box, that they would rather see America destroyed rather than have more Republicans democratically elected. Thankfully the Internet and blogs have exposed these monkeys and their organ grinder, the lying liberal media.
