Captialism? Maybe. Faux-Racial Equality? Definitely!

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]
in response to reader comment: You Left Out One Important Point

Submitted by Dan D. (United States), Apr 19, 2006 at 21:04

Edward J. Menghi, you're right about many of these far-leftists being dedicated to overthrowing Captialism. But here's something that a lot of people are ignoring --The false sense that by siding with Saddam and/or Osama, they're defeating what they THINK is racism, and "imperialsm." They moronically believe we're only killing Islamo-fascists and other Arab Fanatics simply because they have brown skin, and the west is run by those who have white skin. It was one of the same lies they told themselves and everybody else when we were fighting against communist expansion in Indochina, Latin America, etc. during the cold war, never mind the fact that the reds were the ones who started killing these people to begin with. It's also the same lie they tell themselves and us on why we support Israel, in spite of the fact that Israel allows Black Jews, Vietnamese refugees and even Arabic Muslims to live there, and has both Hebrew AND Arabic as the official languages. The whole line that we're just evil, racist, intolerant, big-bad whiteys who are killing innocent non-whites just for the oil beneath the ground they walk on doesn't add up when THEY are the ones killing people for not accepting THEIR view of Islamic Law, whatever that view may be.
