When the embodiment of death comes to pay its wishes, I have observed this week that many liberals embrace it, and normal people reject it. It is also worth mentioning that those who do evil take delight in misdirection, lies, and vague responses to specific questions. In doing so the liberals give "credit and tolerance" where "trust and verify" should actually be the policy. And in allowing this the far left in America give the impression that America is weak, not worth defending, and thusly our enemies grow emboldened as they plot their next attack upon us.
This week, like most Americans I was offended, outraged, and angered over the attempted bullying that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blustered his plan to visit Ground Zero with. When the NYPD turned down the world's leading export of terror on his request to use their services and permission to secure his way to the bottom of the Ground Zero pit we New Yorkers cheered. Then came the very bold move of announcing his visit, using his Secret Service escort in defiance of the wishes of NYPD. Congressmen like Peter Kind attempted to pull the funding for Secret Service assignment to the Persian version of Adolph Hitler, but was unsuccessful.
Late Thursday after talk radio had buzzed about it for roughly 24 hours, Matt Drudge leaked a partial transcript of Sunday night's 60' Minutes - not yet aired - interview with Ahamdinejad. The headline across Drudge seem to satisfy the mainstream media and the connection to Ground Zero disappeared completely from the headlines with the emphasis moving to the speech he would give later in the day at Columbia University.
There was but one small problem. In the leaked interview transcript Ahmadinejad never confirms that he took the Ground Zero stop off his schedule. In fact he confirms in the interview that he still has it on his schedule.
Little Green Footballs was, to my knowledge, the primary voice who did not yet believe what the press had accepted at less than face value. In fact at press time for this column, written especially late in the day, much to my editor's chagrin the Iranian owned Islamic Republic News Agency is STILL reporting that Ahmadinejad is intending to go to Ground Zero. His arrival time is expected to be 10am. Iran is also protesting New York's anti-hospitable view on the matter.
In the run up to the weekend my New York based listenership grew so irate at the arrogance of Ahamdinejad to come and pay his respects (to the "brave 19), that before I was off the air on Thursday they were demanding that we organize a human chain to prevent Ahmadinejad from visiting the site. After the Drudge leak, and the follow up by LGF, let's just say none were convinced that he in fact has changed his plan.
I began to organize as best we could, listeners spreading the word. Tom from the Bronx called to tell of his employment with the contractors in the Ground Zero pit - he and they would be walking off the job site to come stand with us at 9:30am Monday morning. James from Richmond, Virginia wrote to say that his bag was packed and he was on his way. Fox5 News in New York brought the rally to the attention of their viewers. E-mail poured in by the hundreds some from as far away as Utah to say that they would be standing shoulder to shoulder with us.
By far the most touching e-mail I received was from Nancy. "Nancy from Fleishmans" as she is known to my audience. She is a clear-headed commonsense nurse who works in Manhattan. Both Nancy and her 82 year old mother expressed a desire to make their way all the way to Liberty Street and Broadway in order to simply stand up to the face of evil when he showed up to "praise Allah" for the "great victory" of the "brave 19."
I made mention of Nancy's note to me and how it had moved me on my site this week as well. The result of that being that one of the posters at FARK.com picked it up, ridiculed the sincerity of the 82 year old African American mom, and began to give disingenuous lectures about the differences in Arab vs. Persian Islamic theology.
Thinking themselves witty, some of them even made offensive and immoral inferences between Ahmadinejad and the elderly but quite patriotic lady.
It has always seemed to me that arrogant scoffing liberals always adopted the mentality, methodologies, and in this case even the propagandized thinking of our enemies. But the nearly 1000 comments left in response to this simple woman's gesture to stand and say "no" to a terrorist proved it.
The left in America is why the terrorists think they will defeat us.
I've said it for years, "Liberals are going to get us all killed."
And to the degree that the American left will adopt the lies of our enemies and repeat them as truth against we their fellow and concerned countrymen - I am forced to confirm those thoughts this day.
Ahmadinejad is responsible for many, if not most of the blown up American bodies in Iraq from Iranian made IEDs. His revolutionary guard troops, several of whom were captured in the recent surge, have violated Iraqi sovereignty so that this mad man could fight a proxy war with us. He is pledging to wipe Israel, America, and Britain off the maps - should he ever get the necessary nuclear power to do so. And he is lying, has lied, and is intending to continue to lie about the progress of his nuclear program.
It's for all these reasons and a dozen more that he should not be allowed to set foot in our nation. Yet there is not much neither you nor I can do about that.
But we CAN physically prevent him from getting near ground zero - which at 7:08pm Saturday evening is still on his schedule at 10am Monday morning.
My idea on-air was 2700 bodies between him and the site. We lost that many in that place that fateful morning six years ago.
If you love your nation, and hope for the defeat of our enemies - stand with us?
Liberty Street and Broadway - I'll be there at 9am.
Evil visited this place before we could see it coming. We have been warned about this visit and how we respond this time is in our control!
