Useful Idiots - Republished

I feel it is necessary to republish this op-ed. The names and circumstances can be changed, but the base argument remains the same. Good template?

Vladimir Lenin once described sympathizers in the West as "useful idiots". He stated the idiots were too busy running public relations for the Soviet Union to realize they were pawns for the Communist. Much of this holds true today concerning the War on Terrorism.

Think about the recent statements by some prominent liberals; Senators Richard Durbin (D) Il, Ted Kennedy (D) Mass., Rep. Nancy Peloci (D) CA, the MSM (D) Everywhere, etc. They are all running public relations for the terrorist. They are also acting as an ad hoc propaganda machine for our enemy. There comments are being widely read and viewed by the Muslim world on Al Jazeera, serving as a rally cry for the terrorist. Also, the numerous Leftwing Blog’s that support the left’s position. Their articles are nothing more than a constant flow of "unjust war", and phony "prisoner abuse" stories. They are in fact undermining our war efforts, knowingly or unknowingly. They appear to be performing beyond expectations of even the Jihadist. Mohammed could not be more proud were he alive today.
The MSM, along with their Liberal chums, are undermining our country and our very way of life.

To have a view in opposition of the government and to debate these issues are fundamentally American. However, there vitriolic statements, speeches, reporting and op-ed.’s have no reasonable bounds.
The statements made by Sen. Richard Durbin, widely published around the world and cheered on al-Jazerra, are just one recent primary example of inflammatory statements made by the left. Let’s revisit some of Sen. Durbin’s statements entered into the Congressional Record on June 14th, 2005:"If I read (FBI agent’s report) this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."(Note: This report has not been confirmed and is a Raw report (not cross checked).
Sen. Durbin leaves little doubt that he knowingly participated in the campaign to undermine our military and President’s war policy. He only apologized to the one’s who felt offended. I presume the terrorist were not offended.

Another example of this phenomenon is the Liberal MSM ‘s complicity in their refusal to call a spade a spade. The terrorist that are fighting in Iraq are just that: TERRORIST! Not insurgents. One definition of insurgents is: a person(s)(group) who revolts against civil authority or an established government; especially : a rebel not recognized as a belligerent.Terrorist is defined as: violence (as bombing) committed by a person or groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands. The latter assuredly pertains to our current circumstances in Iraq. Another illustration is the BBC calling the London attacks last week as being performed by "terrorist". It was not long that the reference term was changed to "bombers".

The leftwing Clinton Administration treated the terror problem as a legal issue, therefore legal solutions were the answer. Clinton simply did not want to engage in anything remotely attached to terrorism. He raised the sword in his rhetoric, but never stabbed the beast. All done with the full support of the MSM and congressional Democrats.

But perhaps the greatest demonstration of the lefts collusion is the daily negative reporting regarding the war in Iraq. They fail miserably in stating the true picture. When was the last time any one of them reported the latest hospital or school that has been opened or a new power plant coming on line? When do you ever see the smiling faces of locals and our troops having a meal together in their homes, or show a video or print a picture of an Iraqi shaking hands with a soldier and thanking them. I could go on; but my point has been made. If you want to see the positive effects of this war, watch Col. Oliver North’s "War Stories" on Fox News Channel or check out the Military Channel. Both are on cable/satellite.

With so many new medium outlets today, the MSM and Democratic Party are entering a ‘black hole’. The gravitational pull has them, so not even their ‘light’ will escape in the end. I am proud to be part of one of these new mediums.

The terrorist have surely taken a page from Lenin’s thoughts. Maybe I titled this op-ed incorrectly. Perhaps "Useful Infidels"?
