FOR AN ADULT, IT AIN'T THE REASON, IT'S THE TREASON | 2001-12-29
Why is it that John Walker is a traitor while Jane Fonda or Jonathan Pollard is a "misguided idealist"?
The gun Jane Fonda posed with in Hanoi actually shot at American planes, and may have killed an American or two. She went to Vietnam while they were actually killing Americans and torturing American POWs.
Walker joined Al Queda long before the fighting started but all the conservative spokesmen want him hanged.
No conservative will ever demand the punishment for Fonda that he demands for Walker because liberals won't let him. It is liberals who allow conservatives to become "spokesmen" in the media, and any conservative who talked about leftist or pro-Israel treason would lose his respectability instantly.
The word "treason" is just fine if liberals say it.
There is nothing wrong with killing Americans if you do it for the Loving and Democratic Peoples' Republics. There is nothing wrong with spying against America if you do it for Israel.
I am told that Israel is the reason Christ died on the cross. Everybody says it's all right to blame pro-Israeli treason on Christ.
But John Walker should be hanged for blaming his treason on Mohammed.
I beg to differ. As someone who tries to be a Christian, I find treason blamed on Christ MORE offensive than Walker's treason in the name of Mohammed.
