Let The Bastards Grind You Down

Far, far back in the day, I wondered how anyone could worship a God who would gladly strike down thousands of American citizens because a subset of the population did something that, while not proven harmful, nonetheless pissed him off. Well, if the blatherings of Dinesh D'Souza are to be taken as an example, these people merely fear anyone who will rain massive death down on America due to perceived slights. See, according to D'Souza, it wasn't the American land action in Saudi Arabia that pissed off Bin Laden and his ilk, but our social liberalism- our feminism, our support for homosexuals, our right to choose.

And if we want to stop this global jihad, he argues, we must take these values out back and shoot them in the head.

See, according to Dinesh D'Souza, the best way we can end this current terror blitz is to basically give in to their demands so that we can establish a dialogue with "moderate" Muslims (which seems like a slight to Islam itself; if they're the kind of people who believe that women belong under burqas and that gays should be stoned to death, then they're not moderate). Only thus can we defeat world terror... by becoming it. And it's not like this guy is some whackjob working for a conservative clearing house; as Berube points out, he's been on the scene for a while and has a contract with Random House.

Hey, Rumsfeld? Next time you compare war critics to Nazi appeasers, you might want to look on your side of the aisle first.
