Hate-America Update from David Horowitz via The Washington Times
"When your country is attacked there can be no such thing as an 'anti-war' movement. Protesters against America's war on terror are not peaceniks, they are America-haters and saboteurs, and they should be treated as such.
"'The flag has become a symbol of U.S. aggression towards other countries,' declared Jessica Quindel, president of the Graduate Assembly at UC Berkeley as she explained why she and her comrades tried to ban the red, white and blue for the university's [September 11] remembrance. Jessica Quindel is what I call a traitor of the heart, someone who shares with Osama Bin Laden the belief that America is the Great Satan and who would aid and abet any enemy, Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein — it really doesn't matter — before she would embrace her own country and its defense. This is the creed of the sick Fifth Column in this country, whose base is the pc university and whose intellectual gurus are Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn. To call these wretched people Benedict Arnolds would be an insult to a man who did betray his country but did so, at least, in behalf of a tolerant democracy. These post-modern traitors do it in behalf of murderers and fanatics, do it in behalf of nothing more, really, than a blind, fanatical hate, which is really a self-hate.
"Let us respect their right to express themselves, but let us not make the mistake of respecting them."
