Idiot Pundit of the Day

Tuesday, April 1st, 2003 · 1 Comment


Today’s Idiot Pundit of the Day is Wilson C. Lucom, who has written a poorly-argued right-wing piece of propaganda called Anti-war Protesters Border on Treason. What? How does he figure?

The thing that enrages me about most of the conservative garbage I read (which is, sadly, the trash that the masses tend to digest as truth without question) is all the sweeping statements not backed by facts or even persuasive arguments. Take, for example, this snippet from our Idiot Pundit:

    Some of the anti-war protesters are unpatriotic and disloyal, and their actions border on treason.

    The protesters are supporting Saddam Hussein, who forbids protests and even kills protesters. They are being led and manipulated by the Old Left Communist helpers from the Vietnam War.

What are you talking about, man? Did you even bother to look up the definition of treason?

    1 : the betrayal of a trust : TREACHERY
    2 : the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or the sovereign’s family

Since when are peace protesters trying to overthrow the government or to kill the president?

And no, we protestors do not support Saddam Hussein. Rather, we disagree with the method by which the U.S. government has chosen to exact its power over this enemy. It’s not so much about what the president has chosen to do; it’s how he’s chosen to do it. Or is that type of thinking too complex for you? Have you even bothered to speak to a protester, Lucom?

Hats off to our Idiot Pundit of the Day. Keep up the ignorant work.

    This kind of pieces always make my day: they show how short-minded right-winged propaganda is.

    Frankly, I yet have to read an true, objective and smart pro-war opinion.
