What Kind Of Person....?


Varifrank does, and has written an excellent post titled "Agitators". It is a wonderful analogy comparing the "insurgency" in Iraq to the "insurgency" in the South after the Civil War, which was spearheaded by the terrorist group we know as the KKK.

Now, what kind of person would look at the Klan and say they were justified because of the illegal occupation of their country by the foreign troops? What kind of person would say that the African Americans who were killed by the Klan didn’t deserve our protection? What kind of person would look at men like James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner and say that they are the very reason that the Klan exists? And that if we wanted the Klan to go away, we had better leave the south and not antagonize them? What kind of person would say that church bombings were in retaliation for our lack of respect for the culture of the south?

What kind of person would turn their back on black people in the south?

It’s the same kind of person that thinks the insurgents are justified in killing American troops and Iraqi Civilians.

Yes, it is.
