OK, here's the thing. Noam Chomsky and his ilk, Micheal Moore, Democratic Underground, a good percentage of college professors, etc. They hate America. Hate it. Loathe it with every fiber of their being. Not just Bush. America. I have trolled DU for some time. I have read things, many many things, worthy of an Al Qaeda web site. From wishing for more Americans to die in Iraq, to blaming America for 9/11, to blaming an American thermonuclear warhead test for the Asian Tsunami, to openly admiting to leaving lifelong friends and spouses because they voted for Bush, and being proud of it. They trumpet American failures in the exact same way as Al Zarqawi. They WISH for their own country to DIE. What are these people? They are beyond my (what I had thought to be considerable) knowledge of the political spectrum. Anarchists, Socialists, Communists; all words I had fitted into the "hardcore left" catagory, but none seem to fit here. Those people, Chomsky, Moore and the like, are insane. No rational, thinking, homo-sapien can come to these conclusions. Im not talking Democrat or Republican here. They are mentally unstable. They can not accept reality. I truly beleive that so much hatred for others has caused a permanent chemical inbalance in their brains, and they are now unable to process rational thoughts. They truly beleive all the bilge they spout. They are physically unable to accept reality. In their world, Bush used his Diebold connections to rig the election. He strong-armed Colin Powell out to make way for more yes-men who will put their stamps of approval on his world domination plan. He is dumb as a rock yet is an evil genius at the same time. He seeks to nuke all non-christian nations and have America rule the world. Even though he has the capability, he has not done this yet because....I don't know. See what I mean though? NO capacity for a logical chain of thought, whatsoever. But back to the question: Why is this? Why do they hate America so? Why do they HATE THEMSELVES?! Are they masochistic? Do they take pleasure from seeing their countrymen blown apart? They do. But I cannot understand why. Honsestly. I am sitting here at my computer at 12:27 AM and can not think of one logical reason for someone to wish death upon his own country. What truly saddens me is that this blatant anti-Americanism from Americans is catching on. You know its sort of funny. As some of you may know, Madison WI has the rather dubious honor of being the nations first school district to attempt the ban the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem. They did not succeed. So there I was in a public high school one day, as a UW student with my group to talk to high-schoolers about attending college and so forth. An entire gymnasium filled with teenagers. Pledge of alleigence come on, and I would say maybe 16 kids stood up. Sad and pathetic.
