Dennis Kucinich has now officially thrown his hat in the ring for President. Here are a few things he said yesterday that I thought were worth mentioning…
“I’m running for president of the United States to enable the armies of peace.” — Dennis Kucinich
“Freedom bids us to free ourselves from the shackles of violence. When peace becomes innermost, it then becomes outermost in our communities and our nation.” — Dennis Kucinich
“America cannot put its foot on the accelerator of war and advocate peace.” — Dennis Kucinich
Kucinich’s philosophy sounds so familiar to me. Where have I heard it before? Oh yeah, from some of the more vapid Hollywood celebrities. Like Richard Gere who said,
“In a situation like this, of course you identify with everyone who’s suffering. (But we must also think about) the terrorists who are creating such horrible future lives for themselves because of the negativity of this karma. It’s all of our jobs to keep our minds as expansive as possible. If you can see (the terrorists) as a relative who’s dangerously sick and we have to give them medicine, and the medicine is love and compassion. There’s nothing better.”
“I just feel that there are always pacifist solutions, and I think that the leaders know the exit to the conflict, it’s just that sometimes they don’t want to use them. They just want to continue playing their little game of power. And I feel that us people have the responsibility and also the obligation to demand to our leaders to give us the pacifist solutions. To give us a world in peace.”
You know where these people are coming from folks? They’re coming from “liberal fairy tale land” where you can talk out all your problems with people who want to kill you and as long as you’re sincere, things will somehow work out in the end. Do you know why they always work out in the end? Because as Ann Coulter said,
“Negotiation and engagement are said to “work” because, after Democrats spend years dillydallying with lunatic despots who threaten America, eventually a Republican president comes in and threatens aggressive military action. In a fascinating fifty-year pattern — completely indiscernible to liberals — murderous despots succumb to “engagement” shortly after a Republican president threatens to bomb them. This allows liberals to hail years of impotent negotiation and engagement as a foreign policy ‘win’.”
Bingo! Getting a Democrat in the White House — with the possible exception of Lieberman — would be a dream for Al-Qaeda. That’s not because Kucinich & the rest of the Dem contenders are sympathetic to them, it’s because the left’s passivity, extreme reluctance to displease our allies, and belief in a system of impotent international law makes them unable to meet any real threat to our country. The last Democrat in the White House who was serious about national defense was Kennedy & I don’t see that changing any time soon.
