Liberals’ Definition of Torture
Senator What a Dick Durbin’s comments Tuesday have stirred up the hornet’s nest of the blogosphere with folks weighing in on both sides. Liberals seem to have a very warped sense of what torture really is… and they seem to dismiss real torture by our enemies while screaming to the world about non-torture interrogation techniques used by our military against islamofascist assholes that want us all dead. For instance:
The examples Durbin gave before he equated our soldiers to nazis:
“detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor with no chair, food or water.“
Is that torture? Do liberal scream everytime a person is arrested in America? Because you know, our police officers use handcuffs to detain a person and sometimes toss them in a cell all by themselves. Is withholding a piece of furniture equivalent to mass genocide? What about the withholding of food and water? Hell, we do that to innocent folks
who don’t intend to mass murder Americans, why isn’t it good enough for terror-loving-islamofascist assholes? Why, we’ve even punished
trying to give food and water to folks.
“Most times they urinated or defecated on themselves.”
Is crapping one’s pants torture? Boy do we need to alert the pre-schools around the world. Mass torture is rampant in daycares the world over!
“and had been left there for 18ï¿½24 hours or more.”
Maybe nobody reminded them that being alone officially becomes torture after 17 hours.
“one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold.”
Wow, I bet our soldiers humping 50 pound backpacks in the 130 degree sandstorms of the middle east would shed a tear over this one! I’m actually a little pissed that my tax dollars went to the electricity bill to make it colder… We should’ve just sent these terror-loving islamofascist assholes to Canada for the winter.
“On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees.”
Wow, that really is
torture…. it’s like being…. at…. HOME
“The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night.”
Maybe he was feeling guilty for being a terror-loving islamofascist asshole. But then again, I forgot we’re supposed to routinely blame our soldiers for the idiotic self-mutilating acts of terror-loving islamofascist assholes.
“On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room.”
Ok, now we’re getting somewhere. This just might be the worst torture one could imagine. I was trapped in a taxicab in Detroit with a guy who refused to turn down his crappy radio blasting some incomprehensible nonsense by a doped up high school drop out with gold teeth and a cadillac… named after bowl of cereal or oatmeal or something…
And if this is technically classified as torture, can we do something about these idiots that keep pulling up next to my car thinking I want to hear the garbage they’re playing in their car?
But I still don’t think forcing someone to listen to rap music is akin to putting 6 million jews in gas chambers. Call me crazy that way.
So those are the examples What a Dick Durbin cited when he next claimed that an average person would’ve thought that rap music and air conditioners could certainly be confused with mass genocide and brutal beheadings. And he wonders why there’s outrage…..
Markos “Kos” Zuniga and his verbal-diarhea-spewing blog had this comparison of Gitmo:
The torture that was so bad under Saddam, is equally bad under U.S. command. And Dick Durbin had the balls to say it so on the Senate floor.
CBSNews April 1, 2004 - Residents in Fallujah said insurgents attacked the contractors with small arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades. After the attack, a jubilant crowd of civilians, none of whom appeared to be armed, gathered to celebrate, dragging the bodies through the street and hanging two of them from the bridge. Many of those in the crowd were excited young boys who shouted slogans in front of television cameras.
“I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.”
Then there was the story of Nick Berg:
BBC News May 11, 2004 - An Islamic militant website has shown a video apparently showing the beheading of an American in Iraq.
The liberals’ response
? Blame President Bush instead of the knife-wielding, terror-loving islamofascist assholes that slit Berg’s throat while he sat there alive, taking his last gurgling breaths. But whatever you people do, don’t call it torture or blame the butchers.
Compare the fates of the following men with terror-loving islamofascists being subjected to rap music, air conditioning, women’s underwear and public nudity…
Get your damn priorities straight, people.
