Bob Lies About Terrorism. Again.

Today, Bob repeated the right wing lie said that Bush was in a lose-lose situation on the Global War On Terror. He started by saying that Bush kept us safe for seven years from terrorist attacks.

Ummmm….not so much.

When you include domestic terrorist attacks, we’ve had well over 100 terrorist attacks since 9/11. This includes the anthrax attacks that occurred just after 9/11, a shooting of a Unitarian church, a shooting spree from a white supremacist, hoax anthrax letters being sent, attacks from the Army of God and others against abortion clinics, and several others. And we always love to remind people of Bob's love for domestic terrorists who praise God for 9/11.

But Bob and other right-wingers like him think that the only terrorist attacks that count came from brown people. There was one of those, too, when in 2002 a man shot up LAX.

Then Bob said that if another terrorist attack did happen on 9/11, we’d be saying Bush didn’t do enough to protect us by taking away our civil liberties. Bob said that if another terrorist attack happened, we’d all be screaming: “You better waterboard the guy!”

Last I checked, waterboarding someone to extract a confession wasn't exactly something Jesus condoned.

If you’re a Christian, that’s not exactly something you want to hear from someone who claims to be “fearlessly defending the faith."

You know, I just haven't been able to keep him on for even 10 minutes lately. This post makes me remember vividly why.

Bob talks about torture with such zeal. I can picture Bob in the role of executioner. A big shit eating grin on his face as he inflict's pain, and humiliation on the infidels. Come to think of it, I suppose that would make Bob a good christian.
