What is the best defense against a predator? A passive defense and kind words. Enter Colorado environmentalists who romanticize the black bears’ increased boldness and the attacks that come with them.
But this is just a metaphor, really. Our new President sees the worlds predators–Iran, North Korea, Al Qaeda, etc.–and sees a fuzzy widdle puff ball that needs to be petted.
That’s right, our enemies will back off because they’re soothed, snuggled and condescended to, to death.
Liberals don’t see enemies–except for people who are willing to say “hey, that’s an enemy! That animal will try to eat me if he has a chance.” The only enemy is someone willing to say the truth or who has a desire to defend himself.
Now, sometimes, the bear gets really hungry and invades the human territory. Wildlife officials intent on keeping environmentalists, peaceniks and the lovers-of-all-things-sweet and safe happy walk a line and say things like “make yourself look big and scary”. See, the innocent victim shouldn’t shoot the attacker, oh no. And then, the bear comes into the house and starts stealing food and wrecking things and terrorizing residents. Isn’t that cute?
Yeah. The liberal philosophy is the same everywhere: Coddle predators and call decent citizens criminal.
S.E. Cupp notes that President Obama is putting his enemies in “time-out”. Libs ruin parenting, too!
Here’s an excerpt:
If animals are people and fish are kittens, then the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are genocidal tyrants. Once in PETA’s death clutch, few animals escape.
In Virginia, PETA takes the notion of killing with kindness literally: only seven animals found a home out of the 2,216 it cared for in 2008. Seven animals managed a reprieve; the rest were loved to death.
