The Lie of Modern Liberals: Human Rights

Progressive liberals no more care about extending human rights than I do about scrubbing the floor with a toothbrush and soapy water.

FACT: Self-proclaimed “progressive” liberals have never once praised the efforts of the United States and its allies for liberating 50 million people in Afghanistan and Iraq from two murderous dictatorships that were poster children in their suppression of human rights.

Instead, progressive liberals have been on a witchhunt against liberal Western democracies – looking for every possible sign and signal (most of them false) of Coalition troops committing “war crimes”.
Our own elected officials from the Democrat Party have repeatedly accused American troops of being terrorists and Ted Kennedy celebrates the anniversary of Abu Ghraib, but not the free elections in two previously oppressed lands. What the hell?!?

For Amnesty International and their ilk, it is more important to advance their progressive political agenda than it is to truly stand up for “human rights.” They have used the Geneva Convention as an article of convenience and have not applied the standards equally by keeping Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Sunni insurgents, Syria and Iran under the same scrutiny as the United States of America.

Latest example? On its website today, Amnesty International promotes its boat-led protest to the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and its concern about the diamond trade (perfect story for limosine liberals!).

But not a single word about this Islamic terrorist violation of the Geneva Convention.

Four U.S. soldiers, one of them a New Yorker, were captured - and promptly murdered - last Saturday in the Shiite holy city of Karbala, 50 miles from Baghdad, officials confirmed.

Two of the slain soldiers were found handcuffed together in the back of a vehicle.

Soldiers die in combat, of course.

But the murder of disarmed and helpless troops - killing POWs, in effect - is what’s at issue here.

The murder of helpless captives is a stark reminder of the barbaric nature of the enemy that American-led forces face in Iraq.

Indeed, it puts into perspective the complaints about U.S. “atrocities” committed against prisoners at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.

Frankly, complaints about degrading photos and alleged desecration of the Koran can’t hold a candle to the savage abduction and execution-style murders of brave soldiers.

Those who have led the outcry over what they hysterically decry as U.S. “war crimes” in Iraq have a particular obligation to speak out against genuine atrocities of the kind committed by these terrorist insurgents.
I also don’t see Matt Foreman of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force shedding many tears over the murder of Americans around the world and the torture of American troops by Islamic terrorists. Perhaps, for a socialist, it is better to support Islamic fascism than liberal democracy?

This clear hypocrisy of silence shows “progressive” liberals’ true colors. They stand behind the mantra of “human rights”, but they cast a blind eye when it comes to the human rights of Americans.


Shameful.

I guess INVADING/OCCUPYING Iraq wasn't such a good idea after all eh?? Those murdered troops would still be alive today.
