No Wonder They Love to Torture

Why not, when your victims are less than human and you can't tell them apart, anyway?

Trent Lott: Shining Example of a Human Being
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush barely mentioned the war in Iraq when he met with Republican senators behind closed doors in the Capitol Thursday morning and was not asked about the course of the war, Sen. Trent Lott, R-Mississippi, said.

"No, none of that," Lott told reporters after the session when asked if the Iraq war was discussed. "You're the only ones who obsess on that. We don't and the real people out in the real world don't for the most part."
The real people out in the real world? Who the fuck are you talking about?

I think the families with loved ones overseas dying for this lie of a war are "obsessing" on this, you smug little prick.

So are 60% of Americans.

So are the vast majority of Iraqis.

So is pretty much the rest of the fucking world.

You bastard.
Lott went on to say he has difficulty understanding the motivations behind the violence in Iraq.
Of course you don't. You've never had to suffer. You've never had your family members tortured and shot by an occupying force. You've never gone without electricity for months. You haven't the slightest clue in the world what hardship is.

You sanctimonious, vicious scumbag.
"It's hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what's wrong with these people," he said. "Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israeli's and despise their right to exist? Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me."

It's not hard for "Americans, all of us," to understand what's happening in Iraq. You, sir, have a problem with it, because you haven't got a drop of human feeling in your black, crusty heart. You have no idea what it's like to be anything other than a racist, rich, bigoted, overprivileged white man. You wave your bigotry like a flag when you refer to them as "those people," a term I'm sure you're used to using on your fucking porch in New Orleans, which I'm sure is rebuilt for you and Bush by now. You bastard.

"They all look the same to me." Welcome, Americans, to the new/old America. Where racism reigns supreme, and you have no rights unless you are in lockstep with Dear Leader.

This is what America has become.

A nation of racists and torturers.

And many Americans can't be bothered to care.

It is the nation of Trent Lott.

I weep for the future.
