We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It is a rare moment when a multitude of swirling ideas merge into a coherent concept, but the anti-semitic rants of a couple of Harvard profs and the admission of a Taliban spokesman to Yale did it. They are so similar to the relatively innocent "Mules" that the drug lords of Medellin use to move narcotics into the United States, and both are the unwitting messengers of Evil (remember Evita: "There is Evil, ever around us ..."?)
Well, both the Harvard profs and the Yale admissions folk are clearly the mules for Evil, but how? What is the key to their voluntary yielding to dark forces beyond their comprehension?
Hatred -- the door through which Satan enters each one of us fallable mortals. In the current case it is Bush hatred, but we have also seen Reagan hatred and, yes, Clinton hatred and Kennedy hatred (there wasn't much LBJ hatred - it was more like bi-lateral contempt).
Hatred of Bush has led these ivory-tower educational employees (hard to refer to them as intellectuals) to take leave of their moral senses, and it leads them into becoming another example of our oft-discussed phenomenon of liberals not holding "brown" peoples to the same standards as "whites" (remember the 3 million Cambodian deaths - which the Left didn't protest?)
We cannot believe so few people discern this incredibly clear pattern! Satan - Evil, if you will - is exploiting Mules blinded by hatred, and leading them to advocate for and even praise genocidal killers like Hamas, the Taliban, and Pol Pot, and even the Nazis if so doing might in their twisted view hurt the target of their hatred and impotent rage, "dubya", the democratically-elected President of the United States.
