“You can also be upset about the fact that he didn’t have due process, that he didn’t get tried, that he wasn’t you know brought to The Hague for war-crime tribunal. . . . Many, many people, including now on the Twitter feed say, ‘Well, Rosie, it was illegal for them to fly planes into the Twin Towers.’ I’m fully aware of that. Because other people are capable of criminal acts on our soil doesn’t equate to ‘therefore, we are allowed to do criminal acts on their soil.’”
So, the killing of Osama bin Laden was a “criminal act,” and we are “monsters” for not providing him with a trial? I’m not surprised that this drivel is coming from Rosie O’Donnell, as she and filmmaker Michael Moore seem to be in lock-step when it comes to stupidity and political analysis, and they certainly are with regard to the death of bin Laden. What I am surprised about is that she admits that she acknowledges that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda downed the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 — hasn’t Ms. O’Donnell been outspoken about the Bush administration’s purported involvement in the attacks?
As I remember it, Rosie O’Donnell was the one who said that the attacks of 9/11 was “the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel.”
I truly wonder if folks like O’Donnell and Moore actually believe that anybody–other than a small cadre of unstable mental midgets–takes seriously the stuff that warbles out of their mouths. Somebody must because, however small, both of these people still have an audience in pop culture, Rosie with her radio show and gay cruises, and Moore with his quasi-documentaries in which he flagrantly takes liberty with the facts.
Whatever the attraction may be, their reasoning boils down to one simple motivating factor: the enemy of my enemy is my friend. To Rosie O’Donnell and Michael Moore, the United States of America as it stands now–the very nation which has brought them their riches and their dimwitted disciples–is the enemy. Therefore, when it comes to either taking the side of the families of those who died on 9/11 or the perpetrator of those attacks, they choose the latter. Sad.
