Leftists Call Conservatives 'Cowards'

Sister Toldjah call it the "Democratic Theme of the Week."

This "cowardly" meme is coming from the Democratic Party mainstream, naturally, but Markos Moulitsas' essay is particularly loathesome, "
Conservative Cowards."

But no worries. Sister Toldjah's got a devasting smackdown:

8 years after 9/11, these morons still apparently don’t get it. This has nothing to do with ‘cowering’ in the face of KSM. How dare the Attorney General of the US insinuate that the opposition to holding KSM’s trial in a civilian court has anything to do with being “cowardly”? The issue at hand is what sensitive information will be revealed in a US court of law, since KSM is being tried as a murderer in a civilian court, rather than as a suspected terrorist in a military court.

Supposedly – in spite of the fact that many other Gitmo terrorists will indeed be tried by a military court – the Obama administration wants this high-profile trial to be a “beacon” to other parts of the world, to show, in particular Muslim countries, how our justice system can be fair. But the underlying rationale for putting on this show trial, as I’ve already
discussed here, is not to put KSM on trial and to provide justice to the 9-11 victims but instead to try the Bush administration and in the process reveal potentially damaging sensitve information about our intelligence collecting operations.

How about that, I saw that post at Sister Toldjah's site just a few minutes go. She has a very good blog.

I’ve seen this line of attack, that conservatives are "cowards" or "sissies," on any number of liberal websites. It’s remarkably silly.

As she says, it misses the point of our objections, perhaps deliberately so. I think it’s a way of avoiding debate more than anything else.

It's a bit rich for liberals to be calling anyone else "cowardly".

Conservatives are cowards?

Funny how every time this country, or it's interests, are violently attacked, the libs are the wusses who start the appeasement/surrender movement before the smoke even clears.

Liberals are nothing but spineless, chicken-shit surrender monkeys, and that goes all the way back to the Korean War.

Yeah - I was surprised to see this 'we're cowering' stuff today because we object to treating enemy combatants to the constitutional rights we as citizens enjoy. You know what? It's time to take no prisoners. Just kill them all on the battlefield. End of problem.

You're right - it's the newest meme, and I agree with you and your commentators that it is pretty funny to see that accusation coming out of the mouths of wussies.

Those brave souls on the left sure got us pegged. Yes sir. I bet any day now they'll be defending the country out on the battlefield. Right?

Blah, blah, blah, caricatures.

There's a fine line between bravery and stupidity ...

Once again, we see that "change" is really change BACK to the failing ways of the past ... the outcome of arrogant self-worship of one's intellect.

Just another example of Leftist's transference.
