Terrorists Are People, Too!

Can someone explain to me the bizarre relationship between terrorism and the Left? Advocates of government "hate crimes" laws and speech codes like Sen. Obama--who kicked a delegate off his campaign for calling some kids playing by her house "monkey" (they happened to be black)--have no problem hanging out with unrepentant terrorist bombers like Ayers and Dohrn.

In fact, as Steve Chapman points out in the Chicago papers, Dohrn went to jail rather than testify against her fellow terrorists in an armored car robbery that left three people dead.

If the Left's attitude were one of "live and left live," if they were willing to, say, shrug off the comments of Don Imus or didn't insist that the phrase "illegal immigrant" should be banned, then they would at least have the virtue of consistency. But the same people who aren't sure about "calling a spade a spade" in cocktail conversation are prepared to negotiate with Hamas, literally as the missiles from Gaza are falling on schoolchildren in Sderot.

The same Mrs. Clinton, who claims she is horrified by Sen. Obama's terrorist pals had no comment when her husband granted pardons to terrorists while president.

Harvard University says that the US military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy is so offensive they sued to keep military recruiters off campus. Then they turned around and invited former Iranian president Khatemi--who helped create the terror group Hezbollah--to speak on campus. Not far from their completely non-offensive "no boys allowed" fundamentalist gym.

Put it together, and it makes no sense. Are American liberals the most easily offended people in the world, or are they IMPOSSIBLE to offend?

Please, Sen. Obama, make up your mind.
