Lies to The Right of Us

Jay at folkbum's rambles and rants provides the impetus for this piece and responds to the lies they propogate. I'm not as nice.

Wing nuts commentators and bloggers are again proving adept at being disingenuous. With their party leader’s poll numbers dropping precipitously, and having found it unsavory to ask his Saudi buddies to round up more disaffected youth and convince them to fly into tall buildings for the sake of Republican sustenance of power, these pompous pundits have latched onto the movie “United 93” as the savior of their party’s hopes in November.

This from radio shill, Charlie Sykes:

Is this movie too soon? Hardly. It’s overdue. It's a reality check; an antidote
to the fantasy world of the Charlie Sheens/Russ Feingolds who seem to have
forgotten what happened to this country and how we responded (Well, no…that’s a
lie. We as a nation responded fine. It was their fearless leader who was so baffled upon hearing the news that he delayed reacting by reading a book upside down
Peter at Texas Hold ‘em Blogger echoes Sykes:

See this trailer. It is so powerful liberals are demanding it be withdrawn from
theaters because of the shock value (Well, no…that’s a lie.). Every time I see
Sept. 11, 2001 footage, which isn't often, I am left shaking with anger. This
was no different.The terrorist appeasers (Well, no…another lie by Peter.) are
claiming it is too soon for this movie. That is a bunch of "Barbra Streisand
(B.S.)." It isn't soon enough. The national media has removed these powerful
images from our TV screens in hopes America will forget what happened that
terrible day in September 2001 (Well, no…a really big whopper.).

Badger Blogger unoriginally continues:

Charlie Sykes has been talking about the trailer for the movie Flight 93, about
9/11, I just watched the trailer. It is stunningly powerful. There are a lot of
people that say this movie should not be shown, but I feel it is the duty of all
Americans to see this movie, we must remember what evil we are fighting in the
War On Terror. To many Americans have such a short memory, and that is sad
(Well, no…another lie. I had a friend die in the fall of the Twin Towers. I
remember him. His name was Ramzi Doany. Don’t preach to me.)

And last, but certainly least, Chris at spottedhorse2 adds his two cents:

America needs this movie we need to be slapped in the face and reminded of the
real reasons why we fight and who we fight (Well, no…you guys need this more
than us…we acknowledge the dead rather than ignore the carnage brought on by
Bush the Minor.)
You can see the Trailer for United 93 here. This movie has the
chance to be like the World War 2 Series of films that Frank Capra made for the
United States Government. It was shown to GI's to explain that that war was more
than avenging Pearl Harbor but a fight for the survival of Western Civilization.

Hopefully U93 will help remind the cowards and appeasers of places like White Fish Bay and Shorewood what the real evil in the world is. It is a shame we have to call the gutless cowards who voted to cut and run, Americans in the same breath as the Brave people of that flight.

The Coward AntiAmerican left in this country, the Party of Russ Feingold doesn't want the people to see movies like this or footage from that day. Russ Feingold and his ilk want to pretend 9/11 never happen while setting us up for the next 9/11
(Well, no…that’s a really big lie.).

The true Americans in this country are the ones concerned about the safety of its troops, its citizens and maintaining the rights that both enjoy. This in sharp contrast to the LIARS on the right, like the three bloggers mentioned, who would have been comfortable living in Germany in the 30s when democracy was overwhelmed by gross lust for power.
