There's a reason that, when it comes to the more sub-human residents of Wankerville, I try to avoid stuff like, you know, actually talking to them or anything. And this is a good example, where you can read the following from Weasel Boy himself in the comments section in case someone still hasn't figured out that he really doesn't give a fuck about the animals in the wake of Hurricane Katrina:
If given the choice, I would save Saddam Hussein or Osama Bin Laden before my cats. Sure, they may not deserve it, but they are human beings. I have no right to make the judgment to let them die. To not save them when I could would be tantamount to murder and that is simply unacceptable despite the things they've done.
Did you catch that? Make sure you understand WB here as he puts on his superpower cloak of infinite nobility in claiming that, regardless of Hussein's or bin Laden's crimes, they are human beings and do not deserve to be allowed to die.
Of course, Weasel Boy is part of the same population of mouth-breathers who used Saddam Hussein's crimes against his people as the excuse to invade Iraq and kill tens of thousands of its citizens. (But, please, not to call them "people." Rather, call them "collateral damage.")
These are the people who, while they are apparently so humane and Godly that they would rescue Osama bin Laden from death, are the same ones who are shrieking with outrage over Bill Clinton's alleged failure to kill that evil son-of-a-bitch back in the late 1990s when he had the chance.
These are the people who are so sanctimonious they would not allow Saddam Hussein to die, yet fully supported an air strike on a Baghdad suburb which killed numerous civilians, on the off chance that it might wipe out that murderous prick.
And, of course, these are the same raving hypocrites who are so terribly, terribly concerned with the sanctity of human life, but are the biggest fans of capital punishment and, yeah, sometimes you end up wasting an innocent but, hey, whaddya gonna do, it's the price you pay for law and order and, by the way, those abortion doctors had that bullet to the brain coming to them, know what I mean?
This is why I try to not actually talk to these people. Because just when you think they've reached the bottom of the barrel in terms of intellectual idiocy, someone else comes along and lifts up the barrel.
WHOOPS: I'm not sure how I missed this the first time, but read the following passage carefully:
To not save [Hussein and bin Laden] when I could would be tantamount to murder and that is simply unacceptable despite the things they've done.
Got that? Simply standing by and letting either of those two die would be, as Weasel Boy puts it, "tantamount to murder." This is a little odd since conservative wanks like WB are generally pro-death penalty and, when they're asked how they justify that position in light of the Scriptural admonition "Thou shalt not kill," they're normally quick to offer up the same, tedious apologetic.
See, they'll say, the Bible doesn't really say, "Thou shalt not kill." Really, they'll say, it says you shouldn't "murder," which isn't the same thing, naturally, since those death row inmates have it coming to them so, while the death penalty means killing them, technically that isn't "murder."
So, to recap, simply standing by and allowing mass murderers to die is "tantamount to murder," while the deliberate and explicit execution of another human being isn't. This is the sort of thing that happens when you don't take the adults' advice to stop eating the paint chips.
