Call It Treason

Via one of the deep...ah, "thinkers" at The American Thinker (never has there been such a wildly inaccurate name in the entire history of the bleedin' universe), we learn that John Conyers is a traitor. So sez Investor's Business Daily, which helpfully assembles the terrifying evidence for us:
The likely new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says he’s just fighting bigotry in leading a Democrat jihad to deny law enforcement key terror-fighting tools. But he is in the pocket of Islamists.

John Conyers, son of a leftist Detroit union activist, represents the largest Arab population in the country. His district includes Dearborn, Mich., nicknamed “Dearbornistan” by locals fed up with cultural encroachment and terror fears from a steady influx of Mideast immigrants.

Conyers, who runs an Arabic version of his official Web site, does the bidding of these new constituents and the militant Islamist activists who feed off them. They want to kill the Patriot Act and prevent the FBI from profiling Muslim suspects in terror investigations. They also want to end the use of undisclosed evidence against suspected Arab terrorists in deportation proceedings.

And the 77-year-old Conyers has vowed to deliver those changes for them.
I just love it when writers use neutral phrases like "a Democratic jihad" to introduce their argument. It demonstrates to the reader that the writer approaches his subject with an open, inquiring mind.

Personally, I agree that it's completely outrageous that Conyers "runs an Arabic version of his official Web site." I suppose he does that as part of his dastardly plan to inform his constituents about what he's doing on their behalf. Unbelievably traitorous!

And the rest of the list?!?! "Kill the Patriot Act," which never should have been enacted in the first place, or even the second. Prevent racial profiling, which violates several crucial constitutional guarantees -- and which, as almost all knowledgeable law enforcement personnel will tell you, does not work.

And ending "the use of undisclosed evidence"!!!! I'm surprised Conyers hasn't already completely obliterated ten American cities. Before breakfast.

The IBD article also has this bit, not mentioned by our American "Thinker":
Conyers has also sponsored one of the Islamists' favorite bills in Congress. HR 635, which has 40 co-signers, would create a select committee to investigate President Bush for allegedly manipulating prewar intelligence and torturing al-Qaida detainees. The goal of his bill is to build grounds for impeachment.
You see, "good," non-traitorous Americans don't care that prewar intelligence was used only as the propaganda justification for a war that had already been decided upon, just as they don't care that the systematic, comprehensive use of torture is now the American way.

Only "Islamists" care about such issues. And Americans who are traitors. By the way, the title of The American Thinker post is: "The John Conyers Democrats." That means that all such Democrats are traitors.

Even if this libelous asininity were true, they could not possibly harm America's political foundation, our national security or civilization itself more than George W. Bush already has. See here, here and here, just for starters.

Glad to see that widely heralded bipartisanship lasted so long.
