The Obama and the leftist media will attempt to spin this as merely descriptive, and as a tribute to America's resiliency. After all -- we did survive 9/11, didn't we? (Well, actually, 2996 of us did not survive 9/11, but apart from them, we survived.)One thing mo': the left not only thinks we can absorb another mega-attack, they think we can absorb a whole lot more islamization and creeping sharia. IOW: it's not just American lives they are willing to sacrifice; it's American culture and values and civilization.
This is merely Obama talking up America's capacity to endure, they will say.
But it's not. This is a meme that has been circulating on the left for quite a while, usually secretly and among themselves only, but sometimes, ill-advisedly, being pushed out into public as a trial balloon.
The idea, of course, is that America overreacted to 9/11, and 50,000 people die every year in car crashes, and we don't freak out about that, do we? No, we accept these as acceptable losses in the bigger picture (that is, we want to drive places) and we take the exchange. We drive, some of us will die. Sound bargain.
That's the killer notion here -- the idea of bargain. Of what is being exchanged for these deaths. In the case of automobile collisions, well, sure, we have mobility and freedom. That's something.
But the left is pushing this idea that we can safely "absorb" many new 9/11's with an eye towards getting us to "accept" the greater bargain they fatuously offer -- peace, and a general wind-down of post-9/11 security "overreactions" like the FBI tracking Muslims suspected of terrorist ties. If only we didn't overreact to the occasional mass-murder, we could go about our business without war, without increased security measures, without "Islamophobia," without the rest of it.
The problem, you see, is primarily within us, those being targeted for murder. If only we understood that this was a good bargain in exchange for living in a multicultural country and global economy, then we could be good citizens of the world and not lash out so terribly and uselessly when some of the more aggressive proponents of multiculturalism blow up a few of our buildings.
Heck: they're willing to sacrifice this on the altar of socialism.
The left is truly the greatest threat to the USA and the Free World because they are enabling the enemy to attack us kinetically and culturally - AND - they are dismantling our Constitution and our economy.
Without the left acting as a Fifth Column - both consciously (as in the case of Lynn Stewart for example), and unconsciously (because as postmodernists they hate Judeo-Christian values and Western Civilization and capitalism and globalization and free trade - and this this dovetails perfectly with the jihadists' hatred for the West), the jihad wouldn't have a chance. Which is why I have long said: to make global jihad history we have to make the left history!
