They are Not Insurgents!
Adams, Jefferson, Franklin and Washington were insurgents. The term "insurgent" is used to describe those who revolt against established authority, generally meaning tyrannical established authority. thefreedictionary.com lists "freedom fighter" and "revolutionary" as its synonyms. Yet, the elitist leftist media tenuously cling to designating the terrorist murderous thugs in Fallujah as "insurgents." This designation disrespects true freedom fighters, such as our founding fathers and the WWII French Resistance, who earned the right to the noble term. If the Al-Zarqawi thugs are "insurgents," then so was Hitler in the Beer Hall Putsch.
"These alleged people, who are showered by our leftist press with undeserved honor, think nothing of killing innocent third parties on videotape, recording their terrified screams of death, merged with agony. These people are by the use of the label íinsurgent,í equated with our founders!"
These alleged people, who are showered by our leftist press with undeserved honor, think nothing of killing innocent third parties on videotape, recording their terrified screams of death, merged with agony. These people are by the use of the label "insurgent," equated with our founders! When I was in school, I aced United States history. I donít recall Washington beheading British loyalists with a hand knife! Killing innocent third parties is an atrocity. These noble "freedom fighters" -- and you know that the press, still stinging over the people handing them their hats on November 2, will soon address them with that synonym to "insurgent" -- are led by a man who pledges allegiance to Osama Bin Laden! They declare a "holy war" against us because we intend to assist the people of Iraq in self government, in the creation of a freely-elected republic.
These terrorists, these murderers, these forces of evil are fighting for the opposite of freedom! Yet, in order to try to make George W. Bush look bad in the eyes of the people, the networks report the advances of the insurgents, and how we are attaching the insurgents and how the insurgents are attempting to spread their attacks to other parts of Iraq. Did the press not get the message of November 2, 2004? The people are way too smart to fall for the spin. Yet the networks try to spin the Iraqi terror-rebels, these genocidal monsters, into the good guys.
The leftists need to call a terrorist a terrorist, and a murderer a murderer, if they ever want the American people to listen to anything they have to say. The use of the term "insurgent" to describe the Iraq terror-murderers not only connotes undeserved honor upon thugs, it demeans and insults historyís true freedom fighters. Change your term for these thugs to something accurate.
