    Never failing to disappoint...., 2005-04-27 14:38:51 | Main | meet your new oil bandit minister..., 2005-04-28 11:46:54

    somebody had to be disgusting enough:

    I had no idea she was being attacked, since most of the media coverage was the usual glowing fluff reserved for obits, something published by David Horowitz called a "schlussel" writes:

    Where was Marla Ruzicka on 9/11? Hint: Not asking al-Qaeda for money to count and compensate U.S. victims of terror.

    ...

    While it's a sad day when any American gets killed by Islamic terrorists, it's measurably less sad when that American aided and abetted them and belittled our troops. For Marla Ruzicka, some might call it, poetic justice.

    That's what Horowitz might call "moral equivalency followed immediately by moral relativism", and, oh, dancing on the grave of an innocent American. Even if you disagree with CIVIC's mission and congress' decision to support it, the worst that can be said of the girl is that she wasted tax dollars, and it's not necessary to point out how that criticism would jump back into the tree for most people who would make it. Apparently delivering compensation for the victims of our peculiar methodology of bombing the shit out of countries to fight "terror" is the sort of thing that ought to put you on death row. It's almost as bad as noted fascist rags such as the Wall Street Journal dancing on Rachel Corrie's grave, except I didn't expect this to be anywhere near as inflammatory a topic, being as Marla was killed by, you know, the ostensible enemy in this case. So there you go, the same people who are always ready to posture on how some foreigners did a little dance on 9/11 are happy to do a little dance on the graves of innocent Americans. Sick.
