“professorfate“, the DailyKos diarist who wrote this screed, has since removed it.
Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs, posted a couple of the paragraphs to give a good idea of how infected these Kos idiots are with anti-American mental illness.
As a nation the United States no longer has the remotest idea about what it really feels like to be part of a war zone. Americans have lost the empathy that is necessary to make an informed, meaningful, compassionate decision about whether or not war should be waged.
While candidates fight over who has the required experience to properly oversee our republic’s international interests, none realize that none of them have ever felt what it is like to have war waged in their neighborhood and occupied by intruders.
While they may claim to know when to wage wars and to know the horrors of war, they only know them intellectually. They can’t claim that they have emotionally felt them.
No one who was born and raised in the United States can claim that and none can really feel it. We have allowed a Congress and an administration to encourage hate and to hi-jack our compassion. In fact, as a nation we have lost our compassion.
Unfortunately, America is at a point that to be able to really feel again, to regain that compassion, it needs to be invaded and occupied in the same way that we have invaded and occupied Iraq. Then there might be a greater chance that Americans will be more reluctant to accept the invasion of another country.
Maybe seeing and feeling the same level of destruction that we have inflicted on Iraq, at least the American public will understand why invading another country is unconscionable except in the most dire circumstances – which means after that country has directly attacked the United States. And that has not happened since World War II.
Here’s his ‘explaination’:

I used hyperbole in writing the title. I was not attacked physically, rather, verbally. Actually, I was verbally attacked by a whole bunch of people. I really need to explain what hyperbole is and to be more skilled at making sure that people know it is hyperbole. Lesson learned.
I posted a diary entitled, “The United States Needs to Be Invaded and Occupied.” I was attempting to use hyperbole to get people’s attention back to the war in Iraq, which has slipped further into the background. A few people “got it.” Most people did not…..
Oh, we ‘got it’ alright, professor shit-for-brains. “Hyberbole” aside, the rant by this sniveling twit is rife with unrequited animosity; the rest of us Americans, the ones who actually appreciate the military strength that prevents an invasion, refuse to cooperate with professor jihad’s hope for a subjugated America.
News flash, professor: Many people who read your little dissertation know all about war. We can also plainly see that a clueless fuck like you doesn’t know the difference between an unprovoked invasion and fighting back against an enemy who attacked us first, as well as taking care of other threats while we’re at it.
Just like the only war you seem to think was worth it; WWII.
We “occupied” much of Europe, the Philippines, and Japan after WWII, and continue to have military bases in each of those places.
His idea that we should only invade “after that country has directly attacked the United States”, is just ironically stupid on so many levels. The Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 must not have been taught in any history class this ‘professor’ attended in High School.
And, unless I’m mistaken, America was attacked by Muslim terrorists who were aided, abetted, funded, and trained throughout the Middle East.
We invaded Afghanistan first, because Osama Bin Laden, the main organizer of the 9/11 attacks, along with his merry band of Islamic thugs, was still there. He has since escaped into safe haven in Pakistan, thanks to Pervez Musharraf’s inept leadership. The Al Qaeda and Taliban have terrorist camps which operate within Pakistan’s borders and have moles in his Intelligence Service. The battle in Afghanistan is conspicuously absent from most anti-war diatribes, although it’s occasionally displayed on the “U.S. hands off (insert country here)” signs held aloft by the marching morons. But Afghanistan isn’t the only place where Al Qaeda and the Taliban operated. Terrorists cross borders. Iraq and Afghanistan are just two battlefields in this war; two areas where Muslim terrorists can no longer operate freely.
Going into Iraq was a logical and justified follow-on. Hussein could not be trusted nor could disarmament be verified because of his endless deception. Saddam Hussein was a serious threat to U.S. and coalition forces in the region. Establishing a battlefront in Iraq, thereby eliminating the possibility of further use of his hidden WMDs, as well as any chance of terrorist cells being transported through Iraq, just like Syria and Iran are doing now, was not only a good idea, it was necessary.
This Kos Kid really thinks that the United States should be conquered by a hostile foreign enemy, and have our neighborhoods occupied by intruders. Yeah, that’ll teach us to be compassionate to the Islamofascist swine. Let’s all just dress in Burquas, bow to Mecca six times a day, and and capitulate to Sharia Law.
You first, asshole.
The DailyKos is the same site with a pinhead who thinks women in Muslim society have it so great.
When the U.S. goes in and kicks ass, we usually end up rebuilding the “occupied” neighborhoods of the defeated countries and providing economic aid. Too bad we weren’t a real invader like the Soviet Union. But living in a free country, you wouldn’t know anything about that would you?
And just out of curiosity, which neighboorhood and which ‘invader’? I suggest Berkeley, San Fransisco, or the leftist enclave where you live. As for the invader, make sure you pick one you think is strong enough to do the heavy lifting you can’t.
