The Right Needs Therapy, Not the Terrorists

A few weeks ago, Karl Rove said the Left wanted to "offer therapy and understanding" to the 9/11 attackers. His statement set off a storm of controversy. For all intents and purposes, he categorized half of Americans as apologists for terrorism.

Yesterday, a terrorist attack rocked London, killing 50 and injuring 700. Well, what did the people on the Right have to say about it?

When Brit Hume, the right wing talk show host for Fox News first learned about the London attack he also saw the futures market lower and said "time to buy".
"I mean, my first thought when I heard -- just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, "Hmmm, time to buy."


In other words, after hearing about a disaster which could have potentially killed hundreds, Brit Hume's first thought was 'profit'!

Then there was Fox News Military Analyst Colonel David Hunt. He was interviewed on the Bill O'Reilly Show. On the show, Hunt called on the United States to employ a computer hacker to hack into banks in the Middle East and steal hundreds of millions of dollars. He called it "BIBLICAL JUSTICE". As for O'Reilly, he was in agreement with the guy (of course!).

So far, we have one guy who thinks about profits, and another guy who believes he has the inside track on divine justice. (I guess they never heard of "Thou shall not steal" Maybe thats why these same people insist on putting a copy of the Ten Commandments everywhere humanly possible-- because they keep forgetting what the commandments command!)

Lastly, we have Paul Harvey. Paul Harvey has been a voice on the radio for as long as I can remember. He has always been that lovable old man who "tells it like it is", and he has always shown his propesnity for conservatism. Well, yesterday, on his Disney-owned radio show, Paul Harvey became unhinged.

Along with advocating nuclear war, Paul Harvey said:
"Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this continent by giving smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans.

Yes, that was biological warfare. And, we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever.

And, we grew prosperous. And, yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves.

And so it goes with most great nation-states, which -- feeling guilty about their savage pasts -- eventually civilize themselves out of business. And wind up invaded and ultimately dominated by the lean, hungry, Up-and-Coming who are not made of sugar candy."


OK, so we have one guy who sees terror and immediately thinks about making money. We have another guy who advocates grand theft on a mass scale under the guise of "Biblical Justice", and another guy who makes light of and condones America's usage of biological warfare against Native Americans and the 250 years of slavery in American lands. That is "compassionate conservatism" for yah!

These men are certifiable, are they not? I think Karl Rove was mistaken, we don't think the terrorists need therapy and counseling, we think the Right needs therapy and counseling.

Gooood Day!

Hey Bulldog,

I think you are missing some. Here is one example:

http://stevegilliard.blogspot.com/2005/07/example-proven.html

And on FOX News, these guys think it is a good thing the bombing occured in London:

http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/7/8/2458/31146

These guys need a shrink or two if you ask me.

Rove sucks.. And nobody is asking the f'ing Brits (like me! though I'm living in Seattle right now) what we think.

We think it's a storm in a teacup that Bush got us into, and the US should back off and leave well alone.. Britain will need to lick it's wounds in private for a few, but no doubt the media won't let that happen.
Bush and Rove and all the rest should 'bring it on' back at the ranch, thanks.. Grr...

I think whatever BS and media festival they have planned won't wash with the UK.

Thanks for your post. A1..

I doubt therapy would help.
It's stuff like this from the right that scares the hell out of me. Not scared as in -go hide under the covers, but scared as in -time to lock and load.

I think they need more than that and I'm being nice.

For one, that Paul Harvey quote was said a few weeks ago at least. I don't know how old that quote originally is. A few weeks ago my local talk radio station (WRVA Richmond, VA - "The Mac Watson Show") talked about it.

Paul Harvey was saying that civilizations thru history start out small, overthrow the previous regime, grow strong, then fat, then lazy and are overtaken by someone smaller and stronger.

Survival of the fittest basically.

Re-read the other stuff in Paul Harvey's quote. You're focusing on the wrong stuff to get mad about look at this:

"So, following the New York disaster, we mustered our humanity. We gave old pals a pass, even though men and money from Saudi Arabia were largely responsible for the devastation of New York and Pennsylvania and our Pentagon.

We called Saudi Arabians our partners against terrorism. And we sent men with rifles into Afghanistan and Iraq. And, we kept our best weapons in our silos.

Even now, we're standing there dying, daring to do nothing decisive
because we've declared ourselves to be better than our terrorist enemies
-- more moral, more civilized."

He's right. Why have we given Saudi Arabia a pass for financing terrorism with oil money? Why haven't we pushed to move away from oil during all recent Presidencial terms, both Republican and Democrat? We should make getting off of oil a national strategy like John F Kennedy did on putting a man on the moon.

Secondly, I don't know why Brit Hume said that, but the stock market HAS gone up like crazy in the last two days, I can't explain it. Maybe the Brits were more accustomed to an attack like that compared to us Americans? Who knows.

I keep hearing this crap, and I keep waiting for the nation to start laughing...but only 49% do.

Please come visit The Big Red Blog: A Political Road Sign Transcending State and Party Lines.

I couldn't agree more...

Bill O'Reilly's talking points on the day of the boming were very offensive to someone like me who lives in London. And, I'm usually quite tolerant of the guy...

This is a fun blog, will be checking it out in the future :)

Bill O'Reilly's 'Talking Points' Memo was equally infuriating and offensive to me and I live in Canada. I cannot believe some of the conclusions and connection he draws between terrorism and the 'struggling democracy in Iraq'. The guy's an idiot and should be publicly flogged.

First, you're saying that the comments of two TV personalities and a Radio personalities speak for the whole of the Republican party... DEAD WRONG.

If this had been a Senator, a White House Advisor and the Secretary of Defense I'd be screaming too but you've got your panties in a wad over what a bunch of overpaid, over opinionated TV/Radio personalities have to say. Chill out.

BTW, Paul Harvey is Dead On Accurate with what he said. You CANNOT create , establish and expand a country anywhere by being nice and sugar coated. Yes, the mass slaughter of the Native Americans was wrong, yes slavery was wrong, but it's part of our history and it's part of the steps we went through to get where we are today. If we go on being arrogant pushovers like so many of us are today, then yes, we're doomed to fall to the people willing to put their balls to the wall and kill whomever they need to to move up in the world.

therapy would only be wasted on these idiots, but it is a good representation of what the conservative mouthpieces really believe, and hope to convince all of their base to believe too.

I'm not a Democrat, although I'm mistaken for one on my blog. But the likes of O'Reilly and company are why I've thrown my lot in with the dems.

wow, did not even realize what these people were saying, but then again if turned off fox news a long time ago when I realized how much I hated their newscasts...

Thanks for the info... now I will really unplug that network...
