The Libertarian Gas Chamber Mentality

While civilian deaths during combat situations are tragic, if they do die during military actions like what is described in this video, that is the fault of groups like Hamas or countries like Iran.

If Hamas was not lobbing rockets at Israeli cities killing innocent Israeli citizens then none of what is described in this video would have happened. You notice Mrs. Hancock, her husband and the others who edit or paruse this site are silent about innocent Israeli deaths and focus mainly on the deaths of Gaza Palestinians.

Typical Rothbardian libertarian gas chamber mentality: achieve freedom by siding with tyrants or people (like Islamists) and their enablers (like Norman Finkelstein) who ultimately want you dead.

Well, honestly, even though I am recommending lobotomy, I don’t think it will work either, especially if the mind has a type 1 diabetes complication. The Surgeon will just go on cutting and cutting and nothing will happen … believe me! I know this because I studied Economics, just like how Ron Paul know Economics when he studied Medicine.

"Dirt", you made me laugh even when I am pissed of. Your satire is spontaneous, very funny and sharper than an Eskimo’s harpoon that kills Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, the bad Whale.

Mental Astigmatism!

#10621 has a serious case of Mental Astigmatism.The Government that fights Al Qaeda terrorism, is not the terrorist – Al Qaeda and their accomplices right here in the United States, are.

Astigmatism causes blurred vision due to defective cornea. You go to an Optometrist that would prescribe you eyeglasses to cure your distorted vision. But a DISTORTED VISION OF REALITY is a more serious case of Mental Astigmatism.

For example, if you are viewing the U.S. Government’s war against Al Qaeda terrorists and what you see is that the U.S. Government is the terrorist and Al Qaeda is the U.S. Government, you have a very serious problem of Mental Astigmatism!

In this case, to cure your Mental Astigmatism, you do NOT go to Optometrists – you go to a Surgeon. What you need is a lobotomy.

From the letter: "If Hamas was not lobbing rockets at Israeli cities killing innocent Israeli citizens then none of what is described in this video would have happened. You notice Mrs. Hancock, her husband and the others who edit or paruse this site are silent about innocent Israeli deaths and focus mainly on the deaths of Gaza Palestinians."

Let me first state that Freedom's Phoenix simply reports the news. All those in Israel who want to print letters in FP are as welcome as anyone else - you know, within courteous editorial limits, of course.

Second, the point of a libertarian publication like FP, is to promote libertarianism. Libertarianism is about, "What in the world do we have to do, as a nation, with anything that goes on in the Middle East? If you want to go help some foreign country fight some battle or war in the ME, use your liberty to do it. But don't use force or treachery to drag me into it."

Third, the forces against liberty in the USA are so strong right now, that anybody who wants to bring liberty back, will need to fight as hard as he can to get the ball even rolling in the liberty direction. Thus, a whole bunch of libertarians who are sympathetic towards all kinds of injustice around the world, will be focusing on injustice in the USA first. This will often give the appearance of a cruel mental attitude towards other countries. It isn't cruelty. It is about re-enforcing liberty HERE first, and then VOLUNTARILY, according to one's conscience, fighting foreign battles, if he so desires.

Fourth, the fact that somebody is deriding the liberty of libertarians, or anybody else, shows that they are hypocritical about liberty. It shows that they might be against freedom. After all, what is liberty? Isn't it the right to do as one pleases without the constraints of someone else's ideals, etc.? So, am I a hypocrite for pointing out that this letter tries to take away my liberty? I wouldn't be doing it if the letter weren't doing it to me and all libertarians first!

Some of my praises goes to all the Internet authors who are exposing the terrorists who run Government and the Banking systems of the world.

I like this writing, this plastering against the wall if you may for the world to see of this short article entitled: "Libertarian Gas Chamber Mentality". The title itself tells a lot. One of them is it warns an untold grim story that the public should be aware of, at least in this website and about this website.

That’s what I like. A comment that starts with a foul mouth, that I do not like. Just one dirty word I see, I stop reading. The guy needs a mouthwash. I don’t like the smell of the air he breathes.

My sympathy goes to this author who dares to expose this websites’ pro-terrorist bias. Ron Paul finds a home in this website. Here he is publicized as the next president of the United States although that is but dream-like, the possibility of which is worse or poorer than that of a Chinaman’s chance. I suspect that to Hancocks and associates, supporting Ron Paul’s philosophy and publishing-promoting those pro-terrorists arguments, is just strictly business. Anyway, Ron Paul mouths Osama bin Laden’s desire to destroy America, i.e., the Congressman defended Al Qaeda’s 911 attacks and blamed the infamy on Americans.

I think generally, Americans have their own preferences and biases. The Hancocks and associates, are entitled to theirs as we are, to our own. The only problem is you expect trouble when your bias is opposed to theirs. Editor Powell Gammill doesn’t like it, especially when his opinion is contradicted. He had shown his dislikes in many instances through his counter-comments [personal attacks] where he had shown a certain degree of rage.

What I’m saying is that Mike Renzulli could be putting his head on the chopping block! And so are the other writers like him, including myself. My oracle tells me that Hitler’s ghost are online, and dwells on websites with this "Gas Chamber Mentality".

 I could not have said it any better myself, Valencio. Kudos to you! In 4409 and his ilk's twisted little minds innocent Israelis killed by Hamas rocket attacks obviously deserved to die due to guilt by association.

Never mind Hamas and their parent organization the Muslim Brotherhood have openly called for the destruction of Israel and the death of Jews. Peace will come when the Islamists repudiate terrorism and recognize Israel as legitimate. However, Islamists will not do so and have rejected every offer of peace offered by Israel and the U.S.

As to the Rothbardian libertarian gas chamber mentality, due to foreign policy decision  mistakes of the past, 4409 et all absurdly believe that because of past mistakes that the U.S. cannot morally or legitimately defend itself.

I am a Libertarian of Reason and those Libertarians in extremis and their Hamas Mentality embarrassed me to no end. They are actually cynical enemies of the State that enjoy the bounty of the State as they plunge a knife at the back. They are American Hamas right here in the United States. Like Hamas, they make a business out of their cry for freedom.

In short, they are corner-store r3volutionaries who hold us at gunpoint demanding that we should join them in their anti-Establishment revolution and side with Hamas’ war against Israel. When liberty is used to destroy our institutions, then you know exactly what I mean who they are.

Don’t expect their sympathy over Israel’s casualties. That’s reserved for Palestinian casualties Israelites killed. That’s how their Hamas Mentality works.

What I despise the most is when their Hamas Mentality argues their pro-terrorist bias and pro-Palestinian bias. It is so retarded it insults our intelligence.

The comment below is a good example. It says we shouldn’t blame Hamas for killing Israel’s innocent civilians because Mossad created Hamas. We shouldn’t fault Al Qaeda for killing thousands of innocent civilians in 911 because the U.S. Government CIA created Al Qaeda.

Mossad did not create Hamas to kill Israelites … that’s stupid! The U.S. Government CIA did not create Al Qaeda to kill Americans … that’s stupid!

Those were created to kill the enemy at a certain time, in a certain place … not to kill us, stupid!

Now that the time had changed and they turned against us, we should let them kill us because we created them? What kind of mentality is that?

We should whack them like how the angry butcher drops the cleaver on the chicken’s neck with vengeance – not only for their treachery but at least for their bestial ingratitude!

Who let this fiscally liberal Nazi stooge write a letter?

What the stooge fails to understand is that Israeli Mossad created hamas. Just like when our rogue United States government CIA created and funded Al queda in the early 80's. It was called the Mujahadeen and Bin Laden was a CIA asset.

This is not some secret this is common knowledge for anyone who takes a little time to do some research.
