We all know that in the chest of every Republican beats the heart of a coward longing for an authoritarian daddy to save him or her from the monsters, real or imagined, that they create.
In their ongoing effort to criticize every move that a Democratic administration makes, Republicans are currently drumming up hysteria about the fact that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, one of the alleged masterminds of the September 11th terrorist attacks, will actually be tried in a court in New York City rather than detained indefinitely without charges or tried in secret.
During an interview with Andrea Mitchell, cowardly Republican Sen. Christopher “Kit” Bond joined chorus of Republicans pooping their diapers about putting a terror suspect on trial rather than violating rights dating back to the Magna Carta.
Bond: Well I think it’s an insult to the memory of those who were brutally murdered on Sept. 11th to have the leaders behind these cowardly acts of terrorism sit in a courtroom blocks away from ground zero and reap the full benefits and protections of the U.S. Constitution.
Senator Bond, a typical craven Republican coward who is clearly not mature enough to handle the awesome responsibility that goes with self-governance in a Constitutionally limited, democratically elected, representative government, states that giving terror suspects a fair trial would only serve to provide a platform for them to spread their terrorist viewpoints, proving that in the mind of a Republican, our Constitution is too weak to stand up to the insane musings of an indicted terrorist.
Of course, normal people know that Republicans live in a Bizarro World where indentured servitude to trans-national corporations equals (=) freedom and roving wiretaps without judicial oversight equals (=) security, so naturally it is almost expected that these anchors on normal society decry any form of Constitutional government.
House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), also chimed in with this chorus of whiners and revealed his own cowardice and inability to live in a free society when he stated,
“The Obama Administration’s irresponsible decision to prosecute the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks in New York City puts the interests of liberal special interest groups before the safety and security of the American people. The possibility that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his co-conspirators could be found ‘not guilty’ due to some legal technicality just blocks from Ground Zero should give every American pause.”
Clearly, Boehner and his cowardly Republican ilk have so little faith in our system of government they would rather do the bidding of the terrorists by dismantling it, rather than show the strength of the United States by granting all persons access to it’s great legal system, regardless of the severity of their crimes.
In May, House Republicans displayed their cowardice and awe of the mighty terrorists by introducing H.R. 2294, which would stop the transfer or release of terrorists held at the Guantanamo Bay prison into the United States.
The bill, known as the “Keep Terrorists Out of America Act,” was also an act of political theater. Republicans know that the mere act of proposing it will activate their cowardly base of racists and xenophobes. “The Party of No” has a vested interest in making normal Americans (non-Republicans) frightened with the believe that terrorists are so powerful that, like some Marvel Comic super villain, no human jail can hold them and no mere mortal American psyche can stand to be within earshot of their ideology lest they fall into a trance and whilst in the mist of their hypnotic super-sway, run away and join the Taliban.
Normal Americans (non-Republicans) are conscious of the awesome responsibility of cultivating a democratic society of free people, bound by the law and traditions of self governance passed down from our founders, many of whom died in the process of wresting the absolute power of life, death and detainment into their own hands. With their calls for special secret trials and special laws for crimes they deem more heinous due to their political expediency, Republicans would like to plunge our nation back to these dark ages where laws were subjectively applied or denied on the whims of a King.
Meanwhile, in the reality-based world… in spite of the incessant background noise of Republican whining, obfuscation, deception and outright sabotage, normal Americans continued to attempt to move our country forward and realize the dreams of our founders, safe in the knowledge that America is at its greatest when it abides by its noble principals, even in regards to those who may seek to damage it.
