Congressman William Delahunt incites Al Qaeda
As if trying to prove my point from this post, Massachusetts Congressman Bill Delahunt expressed his support for Al Qaeda today:
Massachusetts Rep. Bill Delahunt made the remark Thursday while questioning David Addington, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, during a House subcommittee hearing on interrogation policies. Addington said he couldn't discuss certain interrogation techniques because "Al Qaeda may watch C-SPAN," which was televising the hearing. Delahunt responded: "Right, well, I'm sure they are watching, and I'm glad they finally have a chance to see you Mr. Addington."
You can easily guess to which party Delahunt belongs.
As I wrote on Thursday:
The left views terrorists, criminals, illegal aliens, foreign enemies, etc. as little more than cannon fodder to use against its real enemy - average, taxpaying Americans. If we change our outlook and stop thinking of leftists as well-meaning or merely naive, we will no longer be surprised by each new leftist absurdity. We must get used to the idea that with each challenge that confronts America, we will face two enemies instead of one. The obvious enemy in front of us will be different in each conflict, but the second enemy standing behind us will always be the same.
Congressman Delahunt may wave the flag at campaign rallies, he may salute the flag or go through the motions of praying or saying the pledge or numerous other acts of faux patriotism, but when faced with a choice of the Republicans or Al Qaeda, Delahunt sides with Al Qaeda. Axis Sally was imprisoned for similar conduct. Delahunt and his party are not mere "clowns", as Michelle Malkin writes. This is far more deadly, and we had better treat it as such.
