The Traitor Class – by David Horowitz


scott

On Monday night Bill O’Reilly had a representative of the traitor class in his cross-hairs, an episode he re-visited Tuesday night. The traitor class is easily defined as people who can’t identify a self-declared enemy of the United States even after he has killed 3,000 innocent people in an act of self-described holy war and is prepared to provide his talents and services gratis to help the enemy combatant attack this own country.

Scott Fenstermaker is an attorney for Covington Burling, a white shoe law firm which has provided millions of dollars in pro bono legal work to Gitmo terrorists. A Covington partner is the brother of Weather terrorist Kathy Boudin, and the lawyer organizing the Gitmo pro bono defense team is family friend and political comrade Michael Ratner, head of the terrorist-supporting Center for Constitutional Rights, who has spent his life defending America’s enemies and serving anti-American causes.

If you can’t describe the 3000 innocent victims of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed as “murdered” and your first move is to describe your own government’s case as propaganda, and you are devising a case to “justify” the evil deed your client has committed and won’t say that you would be upset if your country were to lose the case, and also if you’re a Jew and don’t have any problem defending an Islamic Nazi who beheaded Daniel Pearl after forcing him to say “I’m a Jew, I’m a Jew” — there can be only one explanation. You believe in the justification defense you are preparing, you think America and the Jews are guilty and deserve what they get, and you are a traitor.

And much worse — only words are inadequate to describe just how low on the human scale you have sunk.

    You are still free to believe what you want,
    But, since you can't make points without injecting profanity, vulgariteis and bigotry I'm done with you. I've done my own homework over many years, using hundreds of ref's. Time will prove all things. So, go drink your Obamunist Kool-Aid and wait for any scraps your savior might steal from me to give to you. I'm just a redneck, hatseed, Bible-thumping neanderthal who don't know nothin except spittin tabaccy 'tween me teef and waitin for a crtter to shoot from my porch. So F off you hi faluntant big know it all.

    If only some patriotic Marines would shoot the detainees while they were trying to escape. Those who have fought in our wars know what I mean.

  • bubba4

    Your calling our elected officials frauds and traitors and you can't take the word “shit”? Grow up.

    It doesn't take many of your posts to realize you're probably surrounded on all sides by Marxists at all times. Poor little trodaball.

    In three years, when none of your fears have materialized…when the economy has recovered and you haven't been shuffled off to a concentration camp…will that phase this fantasy? Not at all…this “Obama is a Marxist” narrative will be the whole premise behind the GOP candidate in 2012.

    I'm not sure what the Obama Kool-Aid would be? What is he suppose to have us believe? That he's an American citizen and our President?…yep I'm afraid I fell for that one…

    Like so many passionate persons of the right you lack compassion. This is
    one main reason how the liberals and conservatives differ in their true
    natures. As authentic lefties become more radicalized, they become more
    compassionate toward their fellow men, regardless of ideological
    differences. It's part of the *weltanschaung *running all through their
    Enlightenment-based political philosophy. As right wingers move further to
    the right, on the other hand, they become more judgmental and angrier. Just
    feel the anger and disillusionment in this 'comments' page! As for this
    “traitor” name calling stuff, I have this to say: “At long last, sir, have
    you no decency?”
    (How good *is your* history? Name the source and context of that quote.
    Also, give me a three page, dbl. spaced paper on how it became a harbinger
    of cultural tidal waves to come in the next decade. PS: Another
    difference: Righties have no sense of humor and take themselves way too
    seriously.)

    i have no idea why this text is formatted like an e.e. cummings poem. oh well. it's probably a conspiracy.

    Incidentally, I was thinking about what you said about my service. It's not surprising to note that you're being unfair. When I enlisted, I didn't know how they were going to use me. I got tracked into that specialty. I didn't ask for it. Only nine graduates a year came out of that training and it seemed like a good, useful thing to do. As it turned out, it was. I used it for the rest of my life as a field engineer in data communications and banking equipment robotics…you know, ATM machines.

    Let 'em sweat! It's their turn to ride the bench and collect butt-splinters while a new team puts a few runs on the board. So if they can't pull for the home team just because their not pitching, maybe we should try to keep on the bench–or send 'em to the minors. L9

  • GJTryon

    It's been said that conservatives believe in Jesus but don't follow him, while the liberals follow him but don't believe in him. It now appears to be the case that this same pattern repeats itself where the US Constitution is concerned. Sheesh, people! How do any of you KNOW these guys are even guilty? Half the original gitmo crowd have been sprung because there was nothing on them. As for the culpability of lawyers in offering to defend the unsavoury accused, how would Mr. Horowitz -yes, the usually measured and fair minded Mr. Horowitz- like it if he was denied counsel because he was unpopular? Time for America to chill out, relax and pop a DVD in the player – may we suggest the classic “Twelve Angry Men”?

  • CowboyUp

    Puts a few runs on the board? It ain't a game, but if it was, you idiots are putting points on the board for the other side. How carteresque. Expect to be ridiculed for it.

    Let me know when hussein gets a concession for the home team out of one of our enemies. I'll cheer whenever hussein moves the ball forward for the “home team”, but we seem to be his only real enemy. I didn't really expect it from a 'word citizen' like hussein anyway,and he didn't 'disappoint.'

  • BohdanUke1

    You're like a cancer. You just won't let go. Go find somebody else to annoy. I have no more time for you. No more retorts.

    Get a life. Your family and friends will thank you for it.

  • CowboyUp

    Where are my handlers? I think I'm getting ripped off. Do I get my own telepromptor too? Thanks for the heads up, somebody's got some splainin to do at the VRWC. I think I'll wake someone up over there when I'm done here. How many do I get, BTW?

    I'll put their *sses to work over here, but trying to tell me what to feel is an even bigger waste of time than trying to tell me what to think. They'll give up on that pretty quick like everyone else. Are they crosstrained in housekeeping, physical training, and massage?

  • Lary9

    In other words, you're giving up? Good. Now I can get back to the original
    reason I read this blog–the very real threats to this country by home-grown
    Islamic jihadists. Remember them, Patriotboy?

  • Lary9

    Calm down, Tex. I'm on your side, ya knucklehead. What's up with you guys.
    I came here to this blog to read Horowitz on Islamic jihadists and I'm
    getting sodomized by a coven of Heritage Foundation howling wing-nuts! A
    true patriot can't get no respect anymore. Jefferson is turning over in his
    grave.

    You're never going to break through with these guys. You're preaching to a brick wall. They'll gang-bang ya–just like they're doing to me for being sane.

    I'll betcha after this term of office, he gets in for another 4!
    Then they'll repeal the 22nd.Amendment and re-elect him for a 3rd. term. That'll give all you Obama-Drama-Dalai-Lamas a chance to settle in and get comfortable with change.
    (And we all know 'change' is the hardest thing to accept, isn't it, John-Boy?)

  • trodaball

    Oh yes Bubba, Poor me. I'm a paranoid fool who sees a commie under every rock. Sorry Bub, unlike you I work for a living, have an active life, enjoying what freedom has to offer. I love seeing the efforts people make to help their communities and raise healthy families. In contrast, you sound like you need Obama and any gov't program where it can allow to to sit on your a$$ and eat cheetos while you lap up every word Keith Olbermann spews. You live off the Huffington Post and MSNBC. Why ? Because they tickle your ears, giving you hope that those rich people willed be shaken down so you don't have to lift a finger. Yea, you are the solution for America. A lazy slob who dreams of the day where the state can give you a way out. Politicians like B. Hussein O. are your only hope. Work is like a wooden stake in your heart, huh Bubs ? Yea, Obama has shown himself to be a fine, honest man who loves what this country was built upon : a massive gov't who controls all major industries and gives freebies to all who are dumb enough to vote for him. Power and money have never been part of his noble agenda, huh Bubs ? What made us ? Self-reliance and responsibility whenever possible, or dependance upon a gov't which has as much power and control over your life as you are willing to give it ?

  • dgene

    Well said Mr. Horowitz.

  • CowboyUp

    Lol. Yea, they were hot too. I'm sure the conversation would be much better with Mrs. Malkin, and there's daytime.

  • CowboyUp

    I'm just laughing and thanking God hussein is making it so obvious he doesn't know what he's doing. All the spin in the world can't hide it.

  • bubba4

    I run a company i built from the ground up and I work hard and pay lots of taxes.

    You're still just projecting.

  • bubba4

    Yes, I know….

  • Robert Bernier

    Wow! Read this one. It is really good. And this gentleman says it just like it is.

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

  • davorino

    Yaa you pay lots of taxes. Yipee, why not give all your money to taxes, cause your state has lots of new people arriving daily that could use your money hehehe.

  • davorino

    “Come on…who says? FPM, WorldNetDaily, FOX? If you haven't figured it out yet, these outlets are all against Obama and were long before he became President. It doesn't cost them anything to call Obama a commie or say he's not American…and they work up this whole narrative that some of you buy hook, line and sinker.”

    And CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN,…..they didnt rail against Bush constantly during his term? But those were outright truths, right? You probably believe Dan Rather was wrongly fired, right?

  • Dave

    It would predictably take a lawyer to perform treason to his community. After all, it is the legal profession which learns to obfuscate the truth.

    And, there is a truth.

  • bubba4

    “And CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN,…..they didnt rail against Bush constantly during his term? But those were outright truths, right? You probably believe Dan Rather was wrongly fired, right?”

    Well..I don't have to be saddled with one extreme or the other. Everything in this world has some bias. If you write and article, the very choice of your adjectives and sentence structure will lean a certain way…the “take” of the author.

    Bush took a lot of heat over his eight years, but you don't think his actions, policies, and words had something to do with that? Besides, he had a couple of years there were the media basically gave him a pass and helped drive the American opinion towards war.

    I think we need to draw a distinction between legitimate news outlets and opinion/editorial/punditry. They are not the same things even if some would love to blur the lines even more.

    FPM for instance is top-to-bottom opinion articles. These guys can write whatever they want. Horowitz's “Discover the Network”…he can put anything in there to. FPM isn't the only one…but some of these outlets push one consistent narrative and they hang everything on this…. US vs THEM….Capitalism vs. Communism…so someone has to take the Communist position in this false dichotomy. Awww…sorry Obama…its all yours.

    BTW: I think CBS was well within it's rights to fire Rather and he and his producer both were humiliated…but this is a different subject.

  • bubba4

    Why “Yaa” and “yipee”? Why be such a bitch…I'm not celebrating it…

    Illegal immigration is down from last year because of the economic crisis….but why would you take such glee in it?

  • falco8

    where is the tipping point? With politics, sedition….when. the problem with your fresh air analogy is that the sunlight and oxygen needed to cleanse that foot fungus itself is polluted (brain washing through education system, media, popular culture, activist judges etc…). How does the clean sun and air- clean the 80 % polluted education system, and the 95% polluted media etc…
    I really doubt these polls of increasing % against the Democrats/Obama is a sign of clear understanding of politics and ideology/worldview but more like selfish survival against the horrible economy and draconian obama taxes. Not that self survival is bad.

    God bless

    Dude! it's a frakkin' metaphor. All metaphors break down under the stress of expecting them to conform rigidly with science. This isn't science. It's writing.
    I guess you're right too though—what the frak.

    Why don't you try writing a screenplay? I've got start-up cash for a shop-around if it's good.

  • Lary9

    I'm with bubba—dial down the volume on those hostility metaphors! Whew. You ought to get with BigElk and write a screenplay. Here's an idea to get you started:

    A bunch of evil liberals are conspiring to try and sell Alaska back to the Russians. With Sarah Palin still in it! They' want to take the profits and donate them to Acorn. But they get caught in an alley by a group of wandering Fox News panelists who open a can of righteous 'whip-a**' on them. But they start whining and give up like a bunch of New-left Nancies. So…then they…you get the drift.

  • falco8

    I agree with you concerning analogy.
