Where’s the outrage?

It involves the standards of our society and what we accept and what we reject that defines us. Some are worried. Beldar gets rather vehement on Bill Ayers.

Proof: In a post-election interview yesterday with ABC News, this piece of excrement had the nerve — one might say, “the audacity” — to simultaneously contend that the bombings he and his comrades in the Weather Underground did were “not terrorism because [they didn’t] target people, to kill or injure,” but that “thousands of people were being murdered every month” by the lawful, elected, democratic government of the United States of America. That’s a despicable, intentional, unforgivable, scurrilous lie, immediately followed by another.

anyone else who could sit in the same room with Bill Ayers without complaint, without speaking out about his continued depravity, has deliberately chosen to ignore evil — and by ignoring it, to perpetuate and implicitly defend it.

It should be noted that Ayers is a professor of education at a prestigious university. He is teaching teachers for our public school systems. The fact that this does not seem to disturb sufficient people to have it on the table for discussion is, in itself, disturbing.

The fact is that the rationalization of despicable acts by claims that their country also committed despicable acts is not a tactic used by Ayers alone. Whether such an approach is used by the terrorists of 9/11 or by those who oppose the US response, the fact is that our society is marked by many who rationalize society hostile actions.

To see where this goes, read Baltimore Confidential by Rachel DiCarlo Currie. It is about “why some cops hate the drug war” – those who see the damage but can do little because of the barriers placed on them by society.
