What does Ayman al-Zawahiri and Harry Bellafonte have in common?
They're both Oreo-chucking morons:
Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.
The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect — along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — "house negroes."
I think that this is a watershed moment in the War on IslamoCommieNazis. Because there's no greater sin to the left than a racial slur. Hell, we've all become familiar with the local and national (especially the local) single-neuron lefty commentards that'll call you a Nazi simply because you have an opinion different than theirs; even if you're just opining on interstate riparian rights. I think old Ayman's (or as I like to call him, "A-Zaw") deeply stupid comment will inflame the passions of America's left enough to finally start taking the war against al Quaeda seriously. Or at least serve as the impetus to a serious of syntactically-challenged imbecilic blog posts comparing him to Michele Bachmann. In any event, all Americans can once again become united behind the cause of wiping these murderous psychopaths off the face of the earth; the differences between our various definitions of the term "psychopath" having become a nullity.
Fly airplanes into our buildings and bomb embassies? We need to understand why they hate us so much.
Use a racial epithet? Them's fighting words!
On a semi-related note, I wonder if Colin Powell is still a "house negro" after coming out for Obama. Or is he now a "house negro" for the new "house negro"?
Identity politics and race baiting can be so confusing. Maybe that's why those people are so crabby all the time.
