The Guy From Boston!



You might wanna turn down the volume one or two notches before you listen to this hilarious rant by internet phenomenon "The Guy from Boston". It's not for the politically correct. It's Paulie Walnuts meets Michael Savage. He's so angry about illegal immigration, he can barely see straight.

I wonder if he was an African or an Arabian calling for the expulsion of westerners if you would still be plastering him up on your blog.

Yeah that would be odd if an Arab was calling for the expulsion of westerners...from the western world.

What about from the Arab world?

It would be nice if we could leave the Arab world to their own devices. You look need no further than Darfur to see what happens when the west does nothing to improve the humanitarian situation.

Many liberals are up in arms that we are not doing more to help in Darfur. Many of these same liberals also criticize us as being imperialistic if we do intervene in the Arab world to attempt to improve a given situation. This is the duality and paradox of being a liberal. If we don't intervene we at fault, yet if we do intervene we are being imperialistic.

Isolationists on the far right like Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan at least have a logically consistent argument. They categorically reject the notion of foreign intervention at all for any reason.

Unfortunately, simply hiding within our borders and hoping for the best is also a flawed foreign policy. But at least the isolationists are not trying to have it both ways.

You are missing the point that most of the present problems in the Arab world are a product of western intervention. Our installation and support for Saddam, our overthrow of a democratic government in Iran (not part of the Arab world, although it often gets lumped in with it), our propping up of dictatorial regimes in the whole of the Arab world, our unwavering support for Israel, and more recently our refusal to accept the results of the election in Palestine. The Darfur conflict is a tribal conflict between various African groups, not a product of Arab or Muslim thought. There are always going to be radicals like patriot in any culture, but I bet you it would not be a problem today in the Arab world if we hadn't meddled in the first place. After all when we invaded Iraq we were only overthrowing the dictator we helped to install and arm. BTW: with regard to Darfur I support bolstering the AU force and providing other tactical measures of support, but not putting American troops on the ground. At any rate the situation in Darfur is much different from the situation of pre-invasion Iraq.
Just wondering, how do you continue to justify our invasion of Iraq? Every pretence turned out to be false, all you are left with is saying you are spreading democracy, but I find that hard to believe for two reasons. (1) The U.S is actively supporting dozens of dictatorial regimes, many who could not exist without our support and many who are just as bad as Saddam was and (2) a majority of Iraqis believe that America should leave Iraq, a majority even believe it is morally acceptable to kill American soldiers. If Iraq did have a functioning democratic government. . . . . .
