What America smells like when it's going bad

Some say a fish rots from the head. So, where do you suppose a country rots from? In our case, apparently the left.

To wit, these comments from some fellow Americans on the kidnapping of Fox journalist Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig in Gaza:

From the Huffington Post:

They faked their own kidnapping.

Who gives a f*** about these Fox Journalists! Let Fox's precious Israel go get them out.
--TakeBackTheLeft on August 18, 2006 at 5:40pm

Actually, he's from Fox so he's not a journalist. … I'm sure he's getting a "Fair and Balanced" trial.

From Democratic Underground:

Of all the luck. Not Geraldo or Hannity, not Gibson or O'Reilly not even Greta Van Susteren. A couple of expendable nobodies that FOX can replace in a heartbeat. There's no joy in this, only disappointment.
--Sentinel Chicken

I'm wishing it was Hannity and O'Reilly, kidnapped in Baghdad. Now THAT would be irony. Not that they'd have the cojones to actually go and show us how great everything's going over there.

Would not Hamas be entirely justified in regarding FOX employees as "enemy combatants," using the same pathetic, arbitrary criteria we used to send people to Gitmo?
--Coalition unwilling

Are they really "HUMANS"?I don't find it amusing... I think it's poetic justice. They make a living off of the blood and misery of the Palestinians and Iraqis and whoever else the Liar-in-Chief and his jackbooted neo-con buddies tell them to propagandize against. Let them see what it feels like. As for their families...I'm sure Goebbels had family too. They'll get over it.
--Tight rope

They've been complicit in Bush's crimes against humanity. The people in front of the cameras at Fox are every bit as complicit as the people behind the barrels of the guns. The pen is mightier than the sword... and equally complicit in the ongoing global Genocide. These Nazi Information Officers get absolutely ZERO sympathy from me.Boo f***ing hoo. They kidnapped Faux TV employees. It's their war. I hope they enjoy reaping its fruits. If anyone deserves to pay the price, then it's those bastards. I wish that no journalist would ever be kidnapped, tortured, and fed their own, quivering t***icles on a plate ... but if it has to happen to somebody, then I will cheer and shout that it be someone from Faux "News."

Some people say those "journalists" staged their own abduction so they spend time having sex with child prostitutes. Did Rush Limbaugh arrange a child sex tourism junket for Fox TV journalists? That's what folks are saying.

Does that strike you the same way it strikes me? Neo-liberalism cum mental disorder.

OK, in fairness, there were some neo-libs—a very distinct minority—who expressed disapproval of all of this sick glee. But there were at least as many far more extreme than what we reported—because they were “removed by moderator.”

Golly, and we didn’t even get to Daily Kos and Rude Pundit…
