Vultures Row: English Reporter Calls for Assassination of George W. Bush

English Reporter Calls for Assassination of George W. Bush


I was pursing the internet today hoping to find something to fill the time until the World Series started. I planed to look at a few houses online with my wife while we waited. I stopped by the Guardian and found the vilest thing I have read in a long time. If you have the stomach you can read it here.

***UPDATE*** 20041025
The Guardian pulled the article & issued a lame apology that you can read here.
The orginal can still be found here.

Charlie Booker starts his rant with this charming look at the men vying to lead the world.

“The US election draws ever nearer, and while the rest of the world bangs its head against the floorboards screaming "Please God, not Bush!", the candidates clash head to head in a series of live televised debates. It's a bit like American Idol, but with terrifying global ramifications. You've got to laugh.”

No Mr. Booker I don’t. I have to recognize that both me are Americans and do understand that America leads the world. We are the most generous nation to ever exist. We have donated our money and our lives to ensure people the world over are free including your country, twice. This election is not about who LOOKS more presidential nor is it about who will suck up to pseudo-intellectual euro trash such as yourself. No Mr. Booker this election is about principles. Mr. Kerry is willing to change his beliefs for whichever audience he is in front of. He groomed himself to be the next JFK going so far as to join the navy and request PBR’s so he could emulate his idol because is his eyes that was what was needed to be president. Then when he got back, he saw the anti-war movement and joined it because he thought it was what the younger voters would want to see. It was one of his many short cuts to power.

George Bush is a man of his convictions and principals. He is not going to change his mind and reverse because the latest poll numbers. George Bush is a man of faith and that, Mr. Booker, I think scares you liberals more than anything.

“George W Bush is... well, he's... Jesus”

Is he really, Mr. Booker? Let us suppose he were, would you be able to account for your life? I do not know, nor do I want to know your religion. President Bush does believe in his maker and has a consistent faith. I do believe this scares liberals for several reasons. One reason is faith is hard work, another is it makes one face mortality. That is a scary thought. In a world where we can get anything we want and throw it away as soon as we are done, is not living to a higher principle a quaint notion for the unlearned?

“So I sit there and I watch this and I start scratching my head, because I'm trying to work out why Bush is afforded any kind of credence or respect whatsoever in his native country.”

Why indeed Mr. Booker, why? That is because most American’s love this country. We do not feel bad for having a great spirit of freedom, of desire to do and be more than we are. We generally do not feel bad that we achieve, we prefer to help the less fortunate work, learn and improve themselves instead of taking from the rich to give to the poor. President Bush has been a leader in a most difficult time. He lead us when we were hit hard, blindsided by a hateful group that hates us for nothing more than being American. We respect President Bush because we look at him and measure him up. He is a man that we can trust with the security of our nation, with the security of our children. His faith guides him at all times. His vision is clear, protect America and keep our country prosperous. It’s something we can identify with. We respect him because he is one of us, we are just like him.

“Throughout the debate, John Kerry, for his part, looks and sounds a bit like a haunted tree. But at least he's not a lying, sniggering, drink-driving, selfish, reckless, ignorant, dangerous, backward, drooling, twitching, blinking, mouse-faced little cheat. And besides, in a fight between a tree and a bush, I know who I'd favor.”

Is this the best you have Mr. Booker? It is a given that liberals can not win a debate, nor an argument on issues and logic. It is all too common that once a conservative makes a valid point and backs it up with evidence, that a liberal will retort to name calling and childish taunts however, Mr. Booker, your name calling is not even witty it is very tired and recycled drivel that has only been seen millions of times before. Please if you insist on trying to win an argument by confusing an issue, try to at least be entertaining and put more than five seconds of thought into your efforts if you can.

“On November 2, the entire civilized world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod's law dictates he'll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. - where are you now that we need you?”

By your own admission, you do not believe in God, but yet you think that the world will be praying, to whom? For what? Bush will win Mr. Booker, because enough American’s believe in him and HIS faith in OUR GOD. I will pray too Mr. Booker, I will pray that George Bush does win and I will pray that you will understand that your not just the result of some long running cosmic accident. I will pray that you see the bodies of babies buried alive in Iraq, I will pray that you look into the Iran and Iraq war to see the photos of the men, women and children, their bodies twisted and broken in pain form the chemical weapons Saddam used on his own people. I pray you will see the men and women that had been dropped into plastic shredders because they made the wrong comment about their leader. I pray you watch some of the videos from New York City on September 11, 2001. The people jumping to death so they would not burn, people trapped in rubble suffocating, being burned alive by thousands of pounds of jet fuel. I pray that you will see a hole in a field in Pennsylvania and understand that people died because they took a stand against evil, they knew they would die, but did so to prevent more from being killed. I pray that you will look into the men and women working in an office building outside of Washington, DC and feel something when you realize that their biggest crime was going to work. I will pray that you will think about those things the next time you are about to utter the phrase “Unwarranted Bloodshed” I pray that no one releases poison gas in the tube nor that a school building in Sussex is blown up, that students at Oxford never have to pick up dead classmates.

“John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. - where are you now that we need you?”

I will pray, Mr. Booker that your family will not have to live in a world where a reporter will ask for political violence and the death of any man because he disagrees with s their politics. Most of all Mr. Booker, I will pray for your soul.
