I was on 60 Minutes two weeks ago for being an extremist. However, compared to the video below, my behavior is well within the bell curve for “normal”.
In fact, this video is so well assembled and “in your face,” that is it truly painful to watch. The speaker is so bold and brazen in her statements, that I am embarrassed to live a life that is so (by comparison) “politically correct”.
I don’t agree with the some of the video’s statements. The author blames the problems on “whites”. I would blame those problems on anyone of any race who is, at heart, a “corporatist,” a “fascist” or driven by the love of money. I have a few other quibbles. Nevertheless, assuming the facts cited in the video are essentially true, the video makes me ashamed to be an American.
Even if the video’s facts are not precisely true, the video’s content is horrific. In this case, the truth really does hurt.
If the numbers in this video are correct, we are killing several hundred Iraqi and Afghan children for every American serviceman who dies. I don’t care how you justify the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars, you can’t kill that many children and still claim to be the “good guys”.
