It's Enough To Drive One Mad

Steyn nails it again. Let me get this straight - America is...

Too Christian, too Godless, too isolationist, too imperialist, too seductive, too cretinous, America is George Orwell's Room 101: whatever your bugbear, you will find it therein - for the Continentals, excessive religiosity; for the Muslims, excessive decadence...
Why is it that the protestors can't see the inherent logical problems in their positions? These aren't stupid people - I don't know them, per se, but I do know people who are otherwise rather intelligent, but still can't see the contradictions inherent in their irrational anti-Americanism. The fact that no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise makes this a wonder for the ages, right up there with humanity's simultaneous love/hatred for Truth.

In essence, then, they've been told the truth, and they have decided to prefer the lie. Maybe it makes them feel better to have someone rather good to hate. Certainly the United States is at the forefront of protecting Western ideals, of which these protestors are enjoying the freedoms. You'd think they'd want everyone to experience this kind of life, especially those who've been living their entire existences under horrid oppression. But still they protest.

I dunno. I'm at a loss.
