Just ponder this disgusting non-apology by Rosie O'Donnell -- not just the words, but the abuse of language:
--"9/11 affected me deeply, as I know it did many Americans."
Wow, nothing gets past you, does it! Next:
--"The falling of the twin towers served to remind me that many of the assumptions Americans have about their lives are rooted in false feelings of security. "
Hmm. That's an odd thing to be reminded of when people are jumping to their death from a hundred floors up. Where's she going with this? "Assumptions rooted in false feelings of security." Is she talking about our denial of the evils of contemporary Islam? I guess I'm on board.
--"In light of this reminder, I have begun doing exactly what this country, at its best, allows for me to do: inquire. Investigate."
I see. Very good. So you've been reading the Koran, logging onto MEMRI.org., checking out Little Green Footballs, that kind of thing?
"America is great in so many ways, one of which is the freedom to speak, and indeed think, freely."
Indeed. But you sound a little defensive. What does this have to do with accusing the American government of attacking its own citizens on 9-11?
--"I have, of late, begun exercising the rights bestowed upon me by the democratic system I value, and the exercising of these rights has taken the form of an inquiry into what happened five years ago, an inquiry that resists the dominant explanations and that dares to entertain ideas that push me to the edge of what is bearable."
Wo, wo, slow down, sister. Are you suggesting that you're not really a vicious and paranoid hater and kook, but a daring intellectual adventerer who refuses to be dominated by racistsexisthomophobicwhiterethuglicanoppressors and is courageously skirting the edge of unbearable truth? Is that it?
--"I have come to no conclusions and, given the scope of the subject, will not for some time."
Sounds like you've concluded that you'd better shut your piehole about your daring discoveries in order to appease your corporate oppressors and keep your job.
--"If the very act of asking is so destabilizing for people, than I have to wonder whether the fabric of our democracy is indeed so raveled it is beyond salvage."
I see. The people who are exercising their free speech by questioning your sanity are "destabilized" and evidence that our system is beyond repair. Would it surprise you to learn that your continuing presence on national TV is prima faeces evidence of a liberal news media establishment so lacking in credibility or even basic decency that is broken beyond repair?
--"My own belief is that the act of asking is itself reparative, because it brings to life the values on which our constitution rests."
But why then isn't questioning your evil ideas reparative?
--"I am, therefore, pledging my allegiance, hand over heart, trying, as always, for a rigorous truth."
The news-speak credo of the leftist MSMistry of Truth. Pledge allegiance to the Truth you have spent your life undermining.
