in response to reader comment: Breivik is obviously insane, and the Center for American Progress is obviously either ignorant or possessed

" Leftist organizations like CAP never cease to amaze me. They fight for a socialist-communist America with apparently no knowledge of history and no interest in educating themselves.

Are CAP and its liberal friends completely ignorant that communism leads to deceit, murder, incarceration and starvation of millions of people? Deliberately ignoring the facts and choosing to remain ignorant makes them stupid beyond all comprehension."

There is definitely somebody stupid here beyond comprehension. If you think that a rant on the crimes of communism is all communism really stands for, then will you kindly remind me of the crimes committed by or in the name of capitalism or will you tell me why it is communist China that is so heavily subsidizing your capitalist paradise which is visibly unable or unwilling to produce most things needed to assure princely lifestyles for people like you who hate communism and yet have no pangs of conscience to live on the credit card provided and paid by a communist country ? Or who do you think the US owes most of its $ 15 trl foreign debt which it will never ever be able to honestly pay back ?

Well, I agree the leftists may be stupid and corrupt but there are a few things which they see and do correctly. And their sin of collaborating with Islam is a trifle compared to what the rightists have done in this respect ! As to Islam it has been made the monster it is now by dogmatic rightists and anti-communists like Kissinger, Reagan and Brzezinski etc. who supported most rabid Islam as the force to beat communism with. Afghan communists wore suits and ties and tried to modernize the country despite Islam. Reagan's "Freedom Fighters" never wore ties and openly fought for a medieval Afghanistan . And indeed they managed to restore feudalism in Afghanistan thanks to the senile anti-leftist dogmatics in Washington. Well, the 9/11 was a result. But why bother? As Brzezinski put it "What is more important in world history? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some agitated Muslims or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the Cold War?"

You speak also of insanity. Now it would be interesting to learn the opinions of those Americans who lost their beloved ones on 9/11 or later in Afghanistan on how they see the sanity of their own government in this respect. I am afraid that most hold it to be insane .
