I get emails

I received the below deranged, hyperventilating email recently; the version I got claimed it was written by a “Canadian housewife,” and a quick google search reveals that, as usual with crazy right-wing email insanity, the attribution is inaccurate (it was really written by Doug Patton, an American columnist, nearly three years ago), but it’s often attributed to a “New Jersey housewife” or an Atlanta woman, and, sadly for us all, it’s still circulating. (Not sure why the attribution gets switched to women so often, and again, while I’m reprinting the original column, in the one I got all the “US” or “America” mentions were changed to “Canada.” Very weird.) Anyway, it’s a nice glimpse into the mindset of the people who progressives are trying to prevent from ruining the world (continued below the fold):

“Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation’s capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning death that day, or didn’t they? And I’m supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was “desecrated” when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I don’t. I don’t care at all.

I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11. I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia. I’ll care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling, slashed throat. I’ll care when the cowardly so-called “insurgents” in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs. I’ll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights. I’ll care when Clinton-appointed judges stop ordering my government to release photos of the abuses at Abu Ghraib, which are sure to set off the Islamic extremists just as Newsweek’s lies did a few weeks ago.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don’t care. When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college hazing incident, rest assured that I don’t care. When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank that I don’t care. When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being “mishandled,” you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I don’t care.

And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled “Koran” and other times “Quran.” Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and — you guessed it — I don’t care!

It’s people who say (and forward) filth like this that will then turn around and say that there’s no reason for oppressed people to be upset, and they’ll be shocked when sane observers suggest that advocating violence, humiliation, and death in this way might have something to do with why America is hated by so many. And let’s not confuse this with being soft on terror or terrorists — I’ll put my service, meager though it is compared to many, up against a keyboard commando any day of the week. I bow to nobody when it comes to wanting to eliminate the death and destruction caused by terrorism . . . which is why I know the above sentiments are profoundly harmful in that effort.
