We Called Them Traitors
And everyone laughed?

For years, conservatives claimed liberals were bent on destroying the United States. We suspected they were willing to ruin lives, even actively ruin America to gain political power and turn America into a socialist state.

We called them traitors. And everyone laughed.

We said liberals were anti-American. We said they were traitors. And we watched the evidence mount. The Rosenbergs. Whitaker Chambers. The Church Commission. The counter culture. So-called “peace protesters.” Jane Fonda.

Jimmy Carter’s arrogant socialist smile. The pro-Sandinista Congress.

We called them traitors. And everyone laughed.

Democrats voted against Desert Storm. Bill Clinton kicked the terrorist can down the road, then sold rocket guidance technology to the Red Chinese in exchange for three million bucks “donated” to the DNC through Chinese front companies. Shamed Senator Robert Torricelli emasculated the CIA.

We called them traitors. And everyone laughed.

We claimed liberals were creating failure and misery, so they could build a massive welfare state to honor their hero, Karl Marx. We said they were pitting one American against another, balkanizing us into little groups. We noted liberals attacked and destroyed the morality that had preserved the individual freedom the desperately wanted to crush. And when we tried to fix what had gone terribly wrong, conservatives claimed liberals stood in the way.

We called them traitors. And everyone laughed.

We noted the lockstep media, with a left wing agenda. We warned about the failing black culture. We observed liberals would sell out anyone for an extra ounce of political mojo. When California’s congressional Democrats were caught discussing how to sabotage their state economy to get more votes, conservatives claimed this was proof of the left wing conspiracy to ruin their own people to gain political power.

We called them traitors. And everyone laughed.

We conservatives always knew that rank-and-file liberals, at best, are incredibly naïve. At worst, they’re scheming moochers, sucking off their hard-working countrymen. At best, we know liberal leaders are arrogant megalomaniacs, seeking power and control. At worst? They’re anti-American, bent on destroying the individual freedom and gathering power at any cost.

And everyone laughed.

Yes, everyone laughed at us. You know, that special haughty laugh that only a sneering, smug elitist can muster when hiding their true intentions.

But then came that Senate Intelligence Committee memo, proving Democrats were plotting to attack our own President by specifically using intelligence data and security secrets, with our troops in harms way in the middle of a war. It is time to stop the music. It is time to raise the curtain. At this point, there can be no further denials. No head-scratching introspection. No politics-as-usual shoulder shrugging.

Democrats are traitors.

Sadly, Republicans have simply not mastered the art of outrage. If Republican Senators had done this to a Democrat President, it would be a super-scandal, far beyond Watergate and Whitewater. Investigations and resignations would have already happened. Movies would have been made. But Republicans are meek and mild, and make sad speeches about “disappointment” and such.

Since Republicans don’t have the guts to say what must be said, let’s allow a Democrat to say a few words. Here’s Zell Miller:

"I have often said that the process in Washington is so politicized and polarized that it can't even be put aside when we're at war. Never has that been proved more true than the highly partisan and perhaps treasonous memo prepared for the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee. Of all the committees, this is the one single committee that should unquestionably be above partisan politics. The information it deals with should never, never be distorted, compromised or politicized in any shape, form or fashion. For it involves the lives of our soldiers and our citizens. Its actions should always be above reproach; its words never politicized. If what has happened here is not treason, it is its first cousin. The ones responsible--be they staff or elected or both should be dealt with quickly and severely sending a lesson to all that this kind of action will not be tolerated, ignored or excused. Heads should roll!"

So let me be the first conservative to step forward and say what must be said.

Finally, after years of suspicion and accusations, we not only found the smoking gun, we found the bullets, the target, the secret plans, and the conspirators plotting to politically assassinate a President who is guilty of protecting out nation from terrorists. Unmasked and caught red-handed, the modern Democrat is a traitor. They should be treated no differently than the Rosenbergs; tried in a court of law, convicted, and suffer the harshest punishment. Death by firing squad, preferably. On TV, if possible.

Because this is not merely a game. When you become a politician, you represent your country. You have taken an oath to defend your nation. If you rise to the level of Senator, you are theoretically the co-leader of the entire nation. When you break a law, it is magnified a thousand times, because your action can affect millions of Americans. And if you commit treason, the very survival of your nation has been compromised.

That is why it is critical that Republicans not only dig around to see who wrote the memo, they should shout to the mountaintops, from coast to coast, city to city, town to town, They should demand, seek, and find justice. And they should demand, seek, and punish.

When your nation’s survival is at stake, there is nothing to laugh about.

I don't think all liberals are traitors.

I think LBJ was.

Some grass-roots liberals are just too emotional to think straight. The liberals in power know better, but they find it easy to convince their constituents they are trying to help them when all they really want is power.

Probably just stupid because they have different ideas than me. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I think most politicos want more power to feed their egos, regardless of which side of the fence they're on.

What a load of BS.

I think its extremely insulting and ignorant to imply that all non-Reps are traitors.

This is another Rep red herring/strawman arguement to draw away attention from their own wrong doings.

I dont hear them screaming for the head of the person who outed an undercover CIA agent recently!

I think most conservatives are traitors because they don't believe in democracy. They think that everyone who doesn't see things the way they do is a traitor and that isn't how it is in a free country. Believe in what the government says or we'll get you. That's freedom?

This is a good example of free speech, just like the Dixie Chicks and that idiot english reporter from yesterday (you probably needed to listen to The Savage Nation last night to know what I am talking about in reference to the idiot english reporter).

Most politicians regardless of party lines go into politics for power. Very few for service.
