More GOP hypocrisy
Nico at Think Progress notices yet another example of hypocrisy on the Right:
On one hand, you have Ward Churchill, the college professor who tried to morally justify the Sept. 11 attacks. Since his writings were given national attention last week, Churchill has received pariah treatment in the press, and his incendiary comments were widely condemned by academics and commentators of all political stripes.
On the other hand, there’s Jerry Falwell, who also tried to morally justify the 9/11 attacks. On Sept. 13, he said "pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America" had "helped this happen." Falwell now frequently provides political analysis for mainstream media outlets, and regularly hosts a television program on CNN.
This is a good reminder that many right-wing extremists are members of the "Blame America" crowd that GOPers like to go on about.
I now demand that every person who deems him or herself a conservative loudly and publicly denounce Jerry Falwell and any one who's ever known him.
I will also use Falwell as evidence that the entire Right believes America had it coming on 9/11. After all, by any reasonable standard, Falwell is more representative of the Right than Ward Churchill is of the Left.
Why do Republicans hate America?
