Some time ago, we defined “unthink“. (It doesn’t take a great leap of imagination to figure out what the term means, but there’s your link anyway.) And so it goes with liberalism… Bush’s “torture” is cruel and doesn’t work, but Obama’s “rendition” goes unthought of and unspoken. Either Barack is a sadistic monster just like Dubya, or there must be something moral and decent to rough interrogation techniques after all. Liberals, explain to me where I’m wrong.
And on and on it goes… Liberal unthink: Either Pelosi is lying or the CIA is lying. Yet the liberals want to move on and unthink the whole misadventure in Nancy’s favor. Sandy Berger stole and then destroyed highly classified documents–and barely got a slap on the wrist for his pains. William “Cold Cash” Jefferson hasn’t resigned his Congressional seat, much less his committee post, despite being charged with 16 counts of bribery and influence-peddling. Just let the story wither on the vine. Better yet, unthink 500 tons of uranium yellowcake, and unthink the fact that Iraq was involved in terrorism.
You know, after a while, it all grows thin. The truth is right out there, but it seems that we as a culture have developed the unique ability to overlook it for the sake of moral and intellectual superiority and political agenda. Our liberal institutions (universities, media, government) have made an art of unthinking. What’s more…
Ah, the hell with it all… I’m tired and I’m going to bed.
