Attention, Hezbollah! James Wolcott ain’t a-scared of you! You ain’t no threat! You ain’t no nuthin’! Let Israel fight its own battles! Lileks sets our boy straight:

Wolcott is on the alert for new rhetoric that portrays Hezbollah as a threat to America. Apparently these magic words will whip all the Fox-clouded lummoxes to support the neo-con plan to spasmodically attack irrelevant social organizations for the mere joy of watching rubble bounce and limbs fly. As if Hezbollah was formed a few weeks ago as a ladies’ auxiliary to the Lebanese Orchid Enthusiast’s Society. Well, their leaders have an interesting applause line: DEATH TO AMERICA. Granted, it’s boilerplate, but after 9/11 I’m inclined to take them at their word.

Yes, yes, I know: again with the 9/11, as if that gave the United States license to attack any Islamic militant organization that spent the last two decades killing Jews, Marines and other infidels. I’m sorry I brought it up. I should realize how I’m being played; isn’t it CURIOUS how people are talking now about the links between Syria, Iran, and various terrorist organizations. How very CONVENIENT. Will they never stop making stuff up to justify their private promises to ancient Lovecraftian blood-gods? Who’s next, the United Way?

If Hezbollah were to manifest in hurricane form, Wolcott would be cheering. Meanwhile, in other idiot news

‘Why, by the way, did it take Arabs to do what people here should have done a long time ago?” CU professor Ward Churchill asked his Seattle audience during a recorded discussion of the 9/11 attacks.

There is a concerted effort by Ward Churchill and his supporters to limit the current debate to a discussion of his outrageous correlation of World Trade Center victims to “little Eichmanns.” Such strategy is logical because, as grotesque and indecent as that analogy was, it would not alone warrant dismissal.

Read further in that Churchill essay, and he states that terrorists may next deliver a “dose of medicine” in the possible form of anthrax, mustard gas, sarin and/or a tactical nuclear device in order to “push back” and teach evil America a lesson. “As they should,” professor Churchill proclaimed. “As they must.”

Quite the charmer, isn’t he?

Here is what Churchill preaches: The U.S. is fascist and Nazi-like. Genocide has been and continues to be perpetrated by our government here and abroad. America was illegally colonized by non-natives who now should be killed (One example of him saying this: “Killing the colonizer is a figurative proposition, it is a literal proposition, but either way, and by all available means, the proposition has to be fulfilled.”)

According to this CU professor, violence is necessary to dismantle the illegal entity that is the U.S. Churchill’s recorded reactions to 9/11 were “Right on!” and a statement that “The action was correct.” On April 19, 1995, according to one former student, Churchill praised and celebrated the Oklahoma City bombing during his CU class.

Whatever, injun.

    1. Last I heard, Hezbollah was insisting specifically that “Death to America” is not just a Hezbollah slogan but Hezbollah policy.

    1. Is Churchill calling for his own murder?  If so, I wish him luck with that.

    1. So, Churchill is not only an admirer and acolyte of Osama bin Laden, he also beatifies Timothy McVeigh, Killer of Children?  Obviously he believes that in the coming slaughter of the Evil Non-Natives, he will be spared because of all that native blood he supposedly carries?

      How stupid does he think American Indians are?

    1. .. he states that terrorists may next deliver a “dose of medicine�? in the possible form of anthrax, mustard gas, sarin and/or a tactical nuclear device in order to “push back�? and teach evil America a lesson. “As they should,�? professor Churchill proclaimed. “As they must.”

      And if Churchill, along with his friends and family, happen to be in the target area, it’s OK by him?

      What a dark, angry world he must live in.

    1. Also at the Seattle confab, Chutch put his new war-chant on display: “US out of North America, US off the planet!” The cigar-store injun his trying his damnedest to make a figurative martyr of himself and the looniest of the Left are cheering him on.

    1. So, to take this weird, racial essentialism to its logical conclusion, almost every country would have to be destroyed, since practically every country in the world is now inhabited by ‘non-native’ denizens that, at some time in their history, got to live there because of violence and colonization. Pretty much the only people who would get to stay where they are are the ones living in the Fertile Crescent between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, though this is probably not possible either since that area is now occupied by people who displaced the Mesopotamians and there antecedents.

      It would all be much simpler if we shot Ward Churchill into space, since he is illegally occupying my brain and colonizing it when I have other, saner things to think about. Ward Churchill out of North America! Ward Churchill off the planet! No tenure for oil!

    1. I’ll bet if ol’ Ward heard of a white professor who stole an Ethnic Studies set-aside from a Native American, he’d take action, prolly tomahawk the deviant white thievin’ bastard.

      Including, according to recent archaeological finds, the Native Americans. Even if you discount the really old bones, there’s tons of evidence that they made a regular habit of slaughtering one another.

    1. Well, if Ward Churchill thinks America needs a “dose of medicine”, I’d suggest a laxative to get rid of the blockage he represents.

    1. Perhaps a bit of pre-emptive self defence against this poisonous fake indian and others who seek to do you down.
      Wasn’t there once plausible deniability for secret services getting rid of those who were a real threat to the Nation?

    1. I remember when Born Losers came out.  Every one wanted to be Billy Jack.  Then Return of Billy Jack came out.  Cool.  Billy Jack was cool.  He was an Indian.  Look like a white man.  But he was Indian deep down.

      White men kill people.  They killed millions in the crusades.  Not Billy Jack.

      My older brother started dressing like Billy Jack.  Had a Billy Jack hat, with a feather in it.  Cowboy boots.  Started walking erect and talking in riddles.  Gave us karate chops and flying kicks for no apparent reason.  Maybe because we were white men, I suppose.  Actually white little kids.  We started hiding from him.  Damn he was annoying.

      My other brother starting wearing it when my older brother went to work.  The grocery store didn’t agree that he should wear it when he was bagging people’s groceries.  Didn’t coordinate with the tie and plastic apron.  One day my other brother accidently put a hole in the hat.  And burned it the trash pile behind the house.  On that day died my older brother’s persona, Billy Jack Rick.  Thank God.

      I think someone should have burned Ward Churchill’s hat 30 years ago.
