by Michael Gregory Steele and Herman B. HayesEvery true American wants to do their part in battling the forces of islamic extremism. Of course my regular Conservative readers support our troops and their Commander in Chief in this fight. I'm sure many of you have a yellow ribbon affixed to the back of your vehicle to attest to this fact. But if you're like me, you sometimes wonder if there's more that you can do, short of enlisting, to help America win this battle.
There is one way you can help the cause, and that is to fight terror with tough talk.
We all know that our terrorist enemies take comfort in the sympathy of this country's left. Instead of strongly condemning this enemy, liberals are busy excusing away the heinous acts of these monsters. When the terrorists see liberals, they see America as a nation filled with al Queda coddlers. This makes our entire nation look weak and such perceived weakness just invites further attack.
Terrorists are like snakes that can sense fear with the flick of their diseased serpent tongues. They slither through the bushes until they find their prey. Liberals make all of us seems as easy a target as an unconscious mouse with four broken legs. Liberal appeasement belies America's true strength.
So what do we do when the enemy starts to see us as vulnerable? The answer is simple -- we remind them that there are still some red-blooded Americans that are still willing to engage in some tough talk. That's why we have to counter this perceived weakness with some good old all-American bravado.
Just look at what Fox News' John Gibson recently said on the subject of battling terrorism:
Five in the noggin is fine. Don't complain that sounds barbaric. We're fighting barbaric.Don't you think John saying that we needed to shoot them not just once but 5 times in the head gives the terrorists pause? I know it would make me think twice before crossing him. After talk like that, the terrorists now know that John Gibson really means business.
Well, I'm serious about fighting terrorism too and I have this message for all you terrorists who may be reading this blog: You cross me, you'll be met with the fists of Steele. If you try and harm my family, you'll wish for a jail cell at Gitmo to cower in. I'll rip your beard out with my bare hands and carve biblical verses into your chest while defecating on the Quran. Then -- six in the noggin. I guess I'm just not quite as forgiving as John Gibson.
This is not the time for soft words or negotiation. You do not negotiate with absolute evil. While I may not be there fighting alongside our brave soldiers in Iraq, I am certainly doing my part here. I'm standing behind my troops beating my righteous conservative chest and flexing my strong patriotic muscles. I'm letting the terrorists know that if they want to take our freedom, they'll eventually have to go through Michael Gregory Steele to get it.
