The real terrorists

Stop the Presses column by Chris Graham

Fox News is always out there talking about how “the Left” has “declared war” on everything.

You know the shtick – “the war on Christmas,” “the war on Christianity,” “the war on family values.”
Everything is military to them – which probably says as much about them as it does about the people that they are supposedly pointing fingers at.

But that’s another column for another day.

I’ve digressed here.

Ahem …

What I’m trying to get at is that I think they have it all wrong.

Stop saying that the Left has declared war on Christmas and Jesus and family values and whatever other crap you want to make up.

Because really, wouldn’t saying that it was Lefty terrorists who were up to no good do the trick one better?

Think about it – the Geneva Conventions don’t apply to terrorists.

Haven’t we already established that six years into the war on terror that our president warned us at the outset would basically go on forever and ever amen?

There you go – torture the bastards.

Oh, come on – you know you really want to.

You wouldn’t want to keep those cream-puff-eating, ascot-wearing wussies in air-conditioned cages where they could go around otherwise asserting their rights, would you?

Hell, no.

We all know you don’t get liberals to talk by keeping them awake for hours on end and making them endure stress positions and the rest.

Actually, all you have to do to get liberals to talk is a cuppa joe with a fancy-schmancy-sounding name and a danish or two or more.

There I go again – digressing.

“Unlawful enemy combatants” – think about it.

Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

“Lefty terrorists launch sneak attack on Christmas.”

“Leftist cell bombards family values.”
I’m just saying, it makes sense to me.


Chris Graham is the executive editor of The New Dominion. He has never declared war on anything.
