Leftwing Looniness

Over-the hill entertainer Harry Belafonte, 78, who two weeks ago called President Bush “the greatest terrorist in the world,” is at it again. “We’ve come to this dark time in which the Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended,” Belafonte charged at the annual meeting of the Arts Presenters Members Conference. “You can be arrested and not charged, you can be arrested and have no right to counsel.”

While such nuttiness hardly deserves a response, I just couldn’t resist, since Belafonte apparently represents a sizable wing of the Hollywood set. Think about it a minute. If Belafonte were right, he would have disappeared the first time he opened his mouth, never to be heard from again. His comments refute themselves.

What will it take for these people to realize we are at war and that “the greatest terrorist in the world” is trying to protect them, too?
