And So It Begins

Sorry so quiet. Many things on many fronts are keeping me distracted.

Yet to be sworn in, Obama gets the first of many insults from the bullies hiding in caves with internet connections. Lawhawk thinks the tape is a “trial balloon” to test Obama’s reaction.

Zawahiri is egging Obama on just to see if Obama will hit al Qaeda.

Zawahiri has sprung a trap on Obama. If Obama orders strikes, Zawahiri can claim that (1) it’s because Obama’s a stooge for others; (2) he’s vain and can’t take being belittled; (3) combination of 1 and 2.

If Obama doesn’t continue to respond to al Qaeda with force, Zawahiri sees just how weak Obama is and how a lack of resolve can be exploited in future attacks against US strategic interests worldwide.

In other words, this is a trial balloon to see how Obama will respond.

The message is also meant to appeal to the far left anti-America fringe to attempt to show that the US will not measurably change its foreign policy now that Obama will be assuming the Presidency. It’s meant to undermine Obama’s possible foreign policy strategies, especially if any of them are a continuation of the Bush and Clinton years.

HotAir calls it the “Belafonte treatment.”

But my question is, where’s the media outrage? It was only weeks ago that certain words or phrases like “community organizer,” “inexperienced,” “hoodwink,” “black,” “Hussein,” “terrorist,” “Bill Ayers,” etc., were considered CODE WORDS for racism. A single comment about the Obama fist-pump and gets E.D. Hill dismissed from FoxNews. But Kathleen Parker is now the media’s darling since she went feral and turned on her own. Wearing a McCain T-shirt or a Palin button resulted in beatings and abuse. Cars with non-Obama bumper stickers were vandalized. Hostility is becoming the new response to political debate. Even the ultimate act of independent thought – voting for who YOU wanted to vote for, not who the MEDIA wanted you to vote for – was considered racist. The Founding Fathers must be shaking their heads in disbelief.

Now a dangerous man, head of a dangerous and murderous organization that hates America with every fiber of its collective being, is hurling insults at the President to be. Why is the media not rending it clothes and pouring ash on their heads in response to this insult? How dare anyone, ANYONE disrespect their Annointed One?

Where’s the outrage? Where’s the demonization of the speaker of the dreaded racist remark? Where’s the illegal background investigations? Hello? Bueller? Bueller?

Oh, sorry, I forgot. The insulter wasn’t an American.

    It follows the anti-american or, might I be so bold as to say, anti-patriotic sentiment; the “We want to get along with the rest of the world and make them stop hating us” movement. They don’t want to insult the rest of the world with outrage against bigoted statements. Well let’s be consistant about this. A hammer is a hammer, a brick is a brick and a spade is a spade. The left needs to face reality and call it like it is.
