Imadinnerjacket: Case Study In Faux Liberal Love

Today was Imadinnerjacket Day in New York City. From his appearance at the United Nations to his controversial speech at Columbia University, President Imadinnerjacket of Iran made an impression. To some, it was a good impression since he's come across as so friendly and intelligent. To others, it was a bad impression because of his statements about wanting to wipe Israel and America off the map. (Gee, I wonder why people might have a problem with that...)

The faux left has been cheering today's speech at Columbia as a "victory for free speech" because Imadinnerjacket got to face people criticial of him. Well, it might have been a victory if Imadinnerjacket didn't deflect difficult questions without answering them. But perhaps the most disturbing thing about his speech (aside from the delusional notion that Iran doesn't have gays and that homosexuality is a "phenomenon") was that the faux left cheered him.

For a while now, the faux left has had a serious man-crush on Imadinnerjacket. Of course, they'll deny it, but their words betray them. With the exception of the "60 Minutes" interview last night (which, by the way, was not very well done, even by the declining standards CBS has shown lately), media portrayals of Imadinnerjacket have been flattering to say the least. They comment about him as a teenage girl might gush over Justin Timberlake. (Granted, Timberlake doesn't have nuclear ambitions...that we know of...)

Yet, I have to wonder how much the faux left is willing to ignore of Imadinnerjacket's misdeeds and troubling statements. For all the talk the faux left does in the area of freedom, they're woefully silent on the definite anti-freedom bent Imadinnerjacket has been on. The Drudge Report today reported that the offices of a website critical of Imadinnerjacket was shut down by the government. So far, not a peep out of the pro-freedom faux left.

But you'll hear plenty of talk about how he's so intelligent, articulate, and friendly. Oh, and how they wish President Bush was more like him. Yet, given what he does to his own people, it's a good thing for them Bush isn't more like Imadinnerjacket or else some of the things they've said about Bush over the years might come true.

As much as it pains me to say it or even think it, I think the main reason the faux left loves Imadinnerjacket is because he's just like them.

- He hates America.
- He hates Bush.
- He hates Israel.
- He lies.
- He dodges questions when caught.
- He hates criticism.
- He doesn't care about freedom.

Seems like a match made in Heaven...if either one of them believed in Heaven, that is.

First, well done and accurate assessment of both Adinnerjacket and the liberals. Second, does Anonymous have anything better to do than post the same stuff over and over?
