The Virtues of, “Not Taking A Side”
Parroting a limp hatred for George Bush (and vicariously, America in general) is known by some as, “not taking a side.” Literally, siding with the world of dictators is, “not taking a side.”
In our bizarre period of shallow values and appraisals you will often hear that Bush removed two dictatorships from terror-land, “for oil” or you’ll be reminded that America is evil, wrong, or "stupid.” In virtually the same breath it will often be conveyed by those who regularly make such statements that they, “are not taking a side.” No, they’re above that – too smart, too morally objective, they “see all sides.”
How can one view a violent confrontation between free society and totalitarianism and claim one is not taking a side (while only criticizing the democratic one)?
Why should anyone be concerned about such things? After all, aren’t there "two sides" in the conflict between freedom and oppression?
If you, your family, or your country were under attack, would you want these slick sophisticate weasels on your side anyway?
...just another pathetic charade from the folks who brought you; The French "Revolution," The Soviet Gulag, and the "Post-Modern" neo-Marxist college course.
