How Charming. Uneducated children spewing words...

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Jen (United States), Sep 9, 2003 at 09:30

Anyone who thinks that the "left" supports Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden are fools. These men have murdered as many people as the US Military has in "defense" of the homeland. You know of course that the home land consists of ultra-conservative right wing Jesus lovers. The home land never includes the poor, damaged people called...gasp...LEFTISTS. One of the foundaions of the American political system is Majority rule with minority rights. That means, oh conservative Christian ones, that us leftists are free to do horrible things like speak our minds, have abortions,have two sexual partners, marry within the same sex, oppose Bush (gasp), practice religions that are not Abrahamic, and not uphold "American" values of consumption,waste andintolerance. War and killing are never the anwers to solve a problem.

The Iraqi people were oppressed, denied basic human rights, and so on, but the answer was not to send young men in to die, send the country into greater debt, and get Bush reelcted. Diplomacy is always the answer. Whether it takes one try or dozens it doesn't matter. Peace is the way things should be done. Doesn't America have a holiday for a peaceful man, a man who agreed with Ghandi? Do we not observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day? Why not follow his example. Beat us, maim us, kill us, but we will not stop until we have won. Our lives and their lives are equally valuable, and no one needs to end them. What does the Bible teach, oh ultra conservative Christian ones? "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." So, answer me. Why do we kill when we wish to live?
