The Left on Terror: What, Me Worry?
by

When conservatives accuse anti-war liberals of being unserious about the War on Terror, liberals respond that they take the terrorist threat very seriously and want to be tough on terrorism, but that they just oppose the Iraq War because it is a distraction. Two recent postings on DailyKos, the online headquarters of the Netroots Left that has taken over the party with the victory of Ned Lamont, provide contrary evidence. The first posting pokes fun at the U.S. decision to ban liquids in response to the recent thwarted terrorist plot in which 10 airplanes were to be blown up. A taste:

 The Bush administration doesn't go far enough for me…

 Obviously, terrorists use airplanes.  So please … just shut down the airlines already…

 Congregating in tall buildings should be forbidden too…

 It's high time to get rid of condos and apartments too…

 While we're at it, confiscate phones, all of them. Landlines, cells … whatever. Shut down the internet…

 People, don't you see? Don't you see how much safer we'll be if we simply stay at home, quit traveling, quit meeting in public, quit living together in large numbers, cut off all communications with the outside world?…

And another one:

 Despite your best efforts, I'm not obsessed with terrorism. Sheesh, I barely even think about it. I face bigger statistical risks, in every way, every day, and on every scale, just driving across a set of railroad tracks and down the interstate smoking a cigarette in the rain, and I don't worry much about that either.

At one point you could dismiss these people as a fringe group, but now they are the heart and soul of the Democratic Party.
