American Elephants


Daily Kos nuts simply giddy over Ahmadinejad! by Emerald City Elephant

Ahmadinejad

Not everyone objected to the Iranian terrorists appearance yesterday. In fact, as Little Green Footballs points out, it sounds as though “the new mainstream voice of the Democrat party, Daily Kos,” are positively in love:

I know I’m a Jewish lesbian and he’d probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon…

Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. I think he kind of looks like Kermit the Frog. Sort of. With smaller eyes. But that’s not all…

I want to be very clear. There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor — locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can’t help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding.

Her feelings are apparently shared by a large percentage of the kosacks, as they call themselves:

More gushing sentiments from the Kos crowd:

No wonder those that are beating the war drums against Iran didn’t want Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak any place American might hear him. Thanks to Columbia University and CPAN he was heard by many. He sounds entirely to reasonable. Hearing his own word doesn’t help the cause of demonizing him as a madman and the most recent Hitler. This is someone we definitely should be talking to. so in the interest of promoting peace and knowledge, I present these short excerpts from his talk at Columbia University today.

Naturally, the Daily Kooks are terribly ashamed of how the terrorist was treated. The America-loathing lefties who have taken bile-spewing to henceforth unimagined new lows, suddenly decry the practice:

Why is it that we can’t host him in our country and allow him to be interviewed without having the press sounding even more like agents of the White House than Bush himself (see Sunday’s 60 minutes)? Why can’t our press and for that matter the President of Columbia, ask the hard questions that Iranian President Ahmadinejad needs to answer on his statements and most importantly on the actions of his government without spewing bile?

Ahmadinejab, like Bush, will be judged by the world on his words and actions.

It would have been preferable to demonstrate our free press and independent academia by properly hosting and interviewing him. Ask him the tough questions in a respectful manner and share the facts we have in the areas we are concerned about. He will present himself for what he is. Our citizens and those of the world could have made their own minds up as to which people had the better approach, system and leadership.

I have no doubt that some of his statements would have been seen for what they were: the statements of a politician with an extreme constituency back home. Who does that sound like on the world stage?

What are we afraid of and what are media reporters afraid of if they host a professional interview? All in all I ashamed at how we have comported ourselves and what we have shown ourselves to be.

Again, a BIG hat tip to the folks over at Little Green Footballs who compiled all these posts from different sources, for reading the Daily Kos so that we don’t have to!

And in case you needed a reminder, here are the Democrat presidential candidates sucking-up to the America-loathing stalinists:
