Julianne Malveaux calls Bush, USA "terrorists"

USA Today columnist Julianne Malveaux, speaking on Sean Hannity's nationally syndicated radio program yesterday, called the United States a "terrorist nation" and President George W. Bush a "terrorist."

During the interview, moonbat Malveaux began ranting about past problems in this nation, including the 1921 mass murder and arson that killed more than 300 blacks in Tulsa, OK.

"Terrorism in the United States is as old as we are. You want me to give you a litany of terrorism? You want me to start with what's happened to the Indian population? You want to go on to what happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921?"

"C'mon now, Sean," Malveaux told Hannity. "We are terrorists."

Asked point-blank if the U.S. was a "terrorist nation," Malveaux shot back: "Oh, Absolutely."

Asked if America was "a good country," Malveaux responded tersely, "We're a country." Pressed on why she omitted the adjective "good," she replied: "I can't answer that. I think we have some good and I think we have some evil."

As the interview was winding up, Malveaux went on a tear about the Iraq war and "the weapons of mass distraction."

"You know they weren't there. I know they weren't there," she told Hannity. "George W. Bush is evil. He is a terrorist. He is evil. He is arrogant. And he is out of control."

I'll freely admit that there are some problems in the US. Certainly our past is a checkered one, but one that has corrected -- and is continuing to correct -- those problems. We are working to fix things. But Ms. Malveaux, go live in a land where you can be killed simply for being a Christian. Go live somewhere where you can be killed for voicing any opposition to the "party line." Go live in a country where your movements are curtailed. Go live in somewhere that is not as free as the United States is. Then come back and tell me who is the "terrorist nation."

Moreover, if this is such a terrible place, why, oh why are you livng here?

I agree with the general thrust of your comments. but I find the "love it or leave it" syndrome to be intellectually lacking.

Suppose a person likes the country, but realizes there are problems, and criticizes the problems AND trys to do something to change it more to their liking. That can be considered to be trying to improve the country. The "Why are you living here?", to me, is faux patriotism.

Point well-taken.

The general thrust is more in terms of the constant bashing without solutions being offered. For example, here, Malveaux goes on a rant, saying ultimately that George W. Bush is "out of control," without offering anything more. I'd ask her (as I would have suggested to Hannity) to expand her comments and offer some suggestions to alleviate the problems she elucidates.

The "love it or leave it" syndrome (which many of us fall into rather easily, myself included) is not absolute by any stretch. I recognize that one can be patriotic without being in love with the leadership that runs the nation. Most who fall into that category at least are willing to offer suggestions to fix the percieved problems. I'm not hearing that from Ms. Malveaux.

Malveaux is just trolling for her 15 minutes of fame. She is not saying anything we haven't heard already from Ted Kennedy. She's simply repeating the official party's talking points.

She needs to compare notes with Cynthia McKinney over a double latte in Midtown before she decides to write another opinion piece - at least then it will be something worth reading (while laughing).

I suspect that Malveaux will soon disappear just as quickly as she has appeared.

Good looking blog. Well-written. This is my first time here, but I'll visit more often.

"Why are you living here?" is a GREAT question to ask in a nation of immigrants. You get great answers about hope, perseverance, survival, and faith.

She in NOT patriotic. The nut should go.

Thank you for not making Julianne Malveaux's image available.

Now, however, if you ever have the occasion to make Suzanne Malveaux's image available, I would be most appreciative.

Malveaux's comments are right on point.
