Has Been Blowhard Shows How Vile Neocon Thought Processes Are
"During an appearance at a Long Island bookstore last month, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was asked by a member of the audience why the United States has not been hit again since 9/11.
"I honestly don't know," Gingrich replied. "I would have expected another attack. I was very, very worried ... when we had the sniper attacks, because the sniper attacks were psychologically so frightening. ... I was amazed that the bad guys didn't figure out how to send ten or twelve sniper teams."
"This is ... one of the great tragedies of the Bush administration," Gingrich continued. "The more successful they've been at intercepting and stopping bad guys, the less proof there is that we're in danger. And therefore, the better they've done at making sure there isn't an attack, the easier it is to say, 'Well, there never was going to be an attack anyway.' And it's almost like they should every once in a while have allowed an attack to get through just to remind us."
In other words people should have died so the rest of us would stay fearful.
Translated, this means the highest priority of the neocons is the acquiescence of the american public to the fascist agenda, not the public's safety.
This is the rotten face of politics at it's worst. The repugs don't have a patent on it but they all subscribe to it and are completely unabashed in broadcasting it. This isn't the first time brownshirts have let it slip that another 9/11 moment would be a great thing for them. Rick Santorum was all smiles about how good it would be for republican presidential aspirants. Arkansas GOP chairman Dennis Milligan actually called for murderous events last year:
“At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001 ], and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country.”
Good jeebus, we would appreciate Dim Son for more death on his watch. But the fascists were very pleased with public reaction to their staged lollapalooza on 9/11, as the horror was slammed into exposed psyches again and again. People don't recall how reviled the new Bush administration was becoming and how ugly the economy was looking. Suddenly their fortunes reversed and as they rode the outraged wave of righteous indignation they could implement their step by step police state plutocracy. Those were heady times when people seemed to be too frightened to object. I would suggest to these shits that mounting opposition to the fascist agenda these days isn't because we aren't frightened enough, it's because of revulsion and disgust at who they are and all the crimes they've committed since 9/11.
The reasons why there haven't been any "terror" attacks since Black Tuesday are because there aren't any "terrorists" as the fascists like to portray, though it's not for lack of trying. Every time they bellow about capturing would be terrorists and preventing attacks the threat winds up having been masterminded by the government itself, just like the beltway sniper spree Gingrich wistfully reminisces about above.
"The Daily Show's John Stewart classified the Miami terror cell that were about to "wage a ground war against America," according to Gonzales as "seven dipshits in a warehouse," following a farcical press conference in which Gonzeles was cornered into admitting that they had no links to any Al-Qaeda members and had no weapons or explosives to carry out any acts of terrorism."
But Gingrich and his ilk may get their wish. With renewed chatter about Sockpuppet being instructed by his zionist masters to lay waste to Iran within two months, the manipulators will have to replay their phony 9/11 style terror attacks to be able to pin the blame on the appropriate patsies and get their war on. When they do, the neocon slimebuckets might not get the big boost they hope for if enough people see through their filthy machinations this time around.
