Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams of Ireland apologized Thursday after telling a Dallas audience a day earlier that she “could kill George Bush.”
This awful human being who actually won a Nobel Peace prize (but then, so did Yasser Arafat) then abjectly apologized. But somehow I think that her apology wasn't really very sincere, because she's been saying the same thing for over a year now.
A year ago, I reported that she told a group of young children she would like to kill George Bush:
NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren.
Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime, particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.
"I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64.
"Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.
I used her as a perfect example of the malignant narcissism of today's political left. She represents the type of sociopath who disguises her sociopathy under a veil of sweet selflessness. At that time I wrote:
If we go back to our understanding of healthy narcissistic development, we appreciate that the pervasive appearance of the GS [grandiose self] and the IO [idealized object] in adults is a result of the failure of narcissistic synthesis. The developmental process that should lead to a healthy self is broken; or fractured; or poisoned.
This can happen under many and varied circumstances--some of which can be prevented and some of which cannot (but that is for another post). We see it happening to the Palestinian children, taught from birth to hate the other/Jew; taught to die for the IDEAL. We see it in college students who are encouraged by their malignantly narcissistic professors to reject traditional moral values; embrace nihilism, and transform the world according to the professor's utopian fantasy. We see it in the postmodern rhetoric of the socialists who still dream of a universal socialist utopia, no matter how many people they have to kill to make it happen.
We see glimpses of it, in fact, in a Nobel Peace Laureate who is so concerned for the IDEAL of some abstract "suffering children" that she is willing to poison the minds of the very real children right in front of her with her own undiluted ideology--knowing full well those minds aren't capable of mature judgment and analysis. She is so unswervingly sure that the source of all suffering children must be…George Bush. How is she different from the Imams of Islam who preach hate --but in the name of some universal Islamic "good".
She doesn't want to face the truth, you see, that it is one variation or another of HER beliefs; HER ideology; HER behavior that is behind most of the unnecessary suffering of--not only children--but all human beings.
She, and many of the others that have been referred to as "useful idiots", has made herself into a willing agent of the malignant narcissism of the Idealized object. They are actually worse than idiots; they are true co-conspirators with the enemies of life itself.
Indeed, Ms. Williams is as malignant as she ever was. You might be forgiven for expecting that someone as exalted as a Nobel Prize winner should be able to come up with an original thought and not be limited to the usual Bush Derangement rhetoric, but Williams keeps on spouting the same mindless drivel year after year.
Think about it for a moment. By her words it is clear that this Nobel Peace Prize winner is not actually opposed to killing at all. Specifically, she wants to kill the President of the United States. She has said so multiple times, and because she is a Nobel Prize winner, people and children cheer her, instead of calling her a hatemonger; or arresting her; or admitting her to a psych ward.
She is as you will note, very specific in her homicidal tendencies. Does she want to kill Bin Laden or Zawahiri, mass murdererers who exhort thier followers to indiscrimately kill innocents?
She has never said so.
Does she want to kill the al Qaeda terrorists who recently baked a child in an oven and served him to his parents? Or those who indiscriminantly massacred women and beheaded children?
She hasn't commented on the report or expressed her compassionate outrage that such things could happen in a civilized world.
No, this lovely peace activist--like so many others-- wants to kill the one world leader who has done the most to put the Al Qaeda chefs out of business.
This bizarre fantasy of Williams would make me laugh if it weren't so horribly twisted; so incredibly perverted and so utterly the opposite of what someone who genuinely desired peace would want. And if there weren't so many who cheered her on in her homicidal ideation out of the delusion that it makes them loving and peaceful champions of the oppressed. She and her audience suffer from a 21st century mass hysteria, sharing the delusion that somehow they are morally superior intellects.
If Williams really were a champion of peace, she would be denouncing the true threats to peace in the world and saving her vitriolic rhetoric to oppose Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist jihadi groups that believe it is OK and even a moral necessity to rid the world of Jews and infidels. But she has nothing to say about these fanatics whose standard operating procedures cruelly and deliberately target the innocent without remorse or conscience.
Being the brave peace prize winner that she is, she will demonstrate how tolerant and compassionate and virtuous she is by voicing her hatred of George Bush, who, whatever his faults, has taken a principled and bold stand against the savage and uncivilized beasts who use religion and terror interchangeably to impose their will.
Is it possible that a Nobel Prize winner could be unaware of the irony? Of the intellectual and moral bankruptcy she exhibits? Of the sheer, unadulterated stupidity of her position? Could she be that clueless and out of touch with her own aggression and fear?
I hereby declare her the winner of this year's Nobel Prize in PSYCHOLOGICAL DENIAL and MALIGNANT NARCISSISM. And yes, I know there isn't a Nobel awarded for this kind of spectacular psychological achievement, but obviously there should be.
