Friends, neighbors, and countrymen of the Left: I hate your lying guts

WHEN I WAS speechwriting at the White House, one rule was enforced without exception. The president would not be given drafts that lowered him or The Office by responding to the articulations of hatred that drove so many of his critics.

This rule was especially relevant to remarks that concerned the central topic of our times, Iraq. Having left the White House more than a year ago, I conclude that the immunizing effect of that rule must have expired, because I now find that I am infected with a hatred for the very quarter that inspired the rule--the deranged, lying left.

I never used to feel hatred for people such as Cindy Sheehan, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, or other pop-culture notables who, for example, sing the praises of Central American dictators while calling President Bush the greatest terrorist on earth. I do now.

And though these figures might be dismissed as inconsequential, their views seem mild compared with those of some of our university professors charged with the "higher" education of our youth.

Thus have I come to hate Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor who called the Sept. 11 victims of the World Trade Center "little Eichmanns"; Nicholas De Genova, the Columbia professor who loudly wished "a million Mogadishus" on American troops in Iraq; and Kevin Barrett, the University of Wisconsin professor who teaches his students that President Bush was the actual mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks.

I used to laugh these people off. Now I detest them as among the most loathsome people America has ever vomited up.

I have also grown to hate certain people of genuine accomplishment like Ted Turner, who, by his own contention, cannot make up his mind which side of the terror war he is on; I hate the executives at CNN, Turner's intellectual progeny, who recently carried water for our enemies by broadcasting their propaganda film portraying their attempts to kill American soldiers in Iraq.

I now hate Howard Dean, the elected leader of the Democrats, who, by repeatedly stating his conviction that we won't win in Iraq, bets his party's future on our nation's defeat.

I hate the Democrats who, in support of this strategy, spout lie after lie: that the president knew in advance there were no WMD in Iraq; that he lied to Congress to gain its support for military action; that he pushed for the democratization of Iraq only after the failure to find WMD; that he was a unilateralist and that the coalition was a fraud; that he shunned diplomacy in favor of war.

These lies, contradicted by reports, commissions, speeches, and public records, are too preposterous to mock, but too pervasive to rebut, especially when ignored by abetting media.

Most detestable are the lies these rogues craft to turn grief into votes by convincing the families of our war dead that their loved ones died in vain. First, knowing what every intelligence agency was sure it knew by early 2003, it would have been criminal negligence had the president not enforced the U.N.'s resolutions and led the coalition into Iraq. Firemen sometimes die in burning buildings looking for victims who are not there. Their deaths are not in vain, either.

Second, no soldier dies in vain who goes to war by virtue of the Constitution he swears to defend. This willingness is called "duty," and it is a price of admission into the highest calling of any free nation--the profession of arms. We have suffered more than 2,300 combat deaths in Iraq so far. Not one was in vain. Not one.

These are the people I now hate--these people who seek to control our national security. The best of them are misinformed. The rest of them are liars.

So I intend to vote on Nov. 7. If I have to, I'll crawl over broken glass to do it. And this year I'm voting a straight Republican ticket right down to dog catcher, because I've had it. I'm fed up with the deranged, lying left. They've infected me. I'm now a hater, too.

PAUL BURGESS of Spotsylvania County was director of foreign-policy speechwriting at the White House from October 2003 to July 2005.

Now it's my turn, Paul.

I will not waste one second on addressing your vile mudslinging and disparaging accusations. You are vermin. You don't have the class and dignity that the common cockroach does. Your party are the ones that have brought us to this place, and here's what you get for it.

You get people like me, who are normally mild-mannered and quiet, but who have had enough of the disreputable bullshit that scumbags like you have been pumping out non-stop for the last decade.

Here's the deal, Paul.

Remember the phrase "get over it" that your side used to say to people like me who disagreed with you, a phrase that you used to tell us that our opinions didn't matter, that it was your country and we had better just shut up if we wanted to live here?

Well, bitch, the shoe is on the other foot now. And, if I ever meet you in person, I assure you that foot will go right up your ass. So, it's your turn to get over it. You are a coward, you are a traitor, you are a criminal, you are a halfwit, you are lying, treasonous scum, and one of these days a liberal like me is going to thrash you like the mangy cur you are. I'll give you a real reason to hate me.

I invite you to contact me in person. If you are man enough to say this kind of crap to my face, I will be happy to beat you bloody and educate you in manners and teach you to show the proper respect to people who are better than you. Me, for one.

Any time, any place, you sniveling little coward.

Any time, any place.

Paul Burgess sure hates a lot of people. Let's take another look at those whom he considers loathsome. He cites some rather outlandish members of academia whom most rational people would find laughable. Those people are no more representative of liberal thinking than Rush ("Michael J. Fox must be off his medication") is of conservatives. Or is he? It's easy, but meaningless, to use the fringe as a proxy of the masses. Same for Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover. I don't agree with what they did and said, and they do not speak for most of us in the "Evil Left". Mr. Burgess hates Ted Turner for displaying enemy propoganda films, but like it or now, that is news. Mr Burgess would probably hate a network that shows coffins arriving at Dover AFB, but that won't happen, because our government has clamped down on that. He hates John Dean for stating the obvious, that Iraq is an untenable situation for which there is no happy ending.

Now it's my turn. I hate that we have a President who told us that Iraq was trying to get uranium from Africa only a couple of months after he pulled the same claim from a speech in Ohio because it had already been discredited. I hate that we have a President who promoted the same person who re-inserted the statement after having been specifically warned it was not true. I hate that we have a Secretary of State who said that maybe the inaccuracy of the statement was known deep in the bowels of her department but not at significant levels, even though her direct report had specifically been told to pull the information. I hate that we have a President who discredited the International Atomic Energy Agency because they had not found the weapons that he was so sure were there, and who tried to have the IAEA head fired because he disagreed with the President. As it turns out, the IAEA head was right on all counts. I hate that we have a President who claimed that Iraq had aluminum tubes for uranium enrichment, even though it had been determined that they were more likely for missile use. I hate that we have a Vice President who continued to claim links between Iraq and Al Qaeda well after all links were discredited by official government studies. I hate that we have a Vice President who continued to claim that mobile weapons labs were found, even though it had already been determined that they were unsuitable for such purposes and were more likely weather labs. I hate that we have a Secretary of Defense that, by any rational judgement, has completely botched all aspects of this operation, but who continues to lash out at those who would dare question him. I hate that we have a President who said no less than 28 times that we should "Stay the Course", then denied that we were ever about "Stay the Course". I hate that we have a President who denies that the war is increasing the number of terrorists, in spite of a report by the sixteen top spy agencies that concluded the war is a "Cause Celebre" for those terrorists. I hate that in spite of increasing violence and anti-American sentiment in Iraq, and basic services that pale in comparison to pre-war conditions, we have an administration that continues to say we are winning. But most of all, I hate that in spite of no WMD, no ties to Al Qaeda, no nuclear plans, a quagmire with no end in sight, 50,000+ dead Iraqi citizens, 3,000 dead Americans, and over $300 billion spent, 40% of Americans, include you, Mr Burgess, still think it was a good idea.
