I’m listening to Gen. George Casey regarding the Ft. Hood rampage and
I’m comforted by his demeanor. It’s my hope that he ignores the
counsel of Sen. Joe Lieberman that Dr. Hasam represents an act of
Islamic terrorism. All this talk about the Army being a band of
brothers notwithstanding, Hasam was surrounded by people who think and
act and talk like Joe Lieberman, Charles Krauthammer, Brit Hume, Bill
Kristol, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Christian evangelical radicals,
as proxies for the Karl Rove wing of the GOP.
I mean, Charles Krauthammer has the expressed attitude for
Palestinians that Josef Goebbels had for Jews like Charles
Krauthammer: they are all vermin. There isn’t a dime’s worth of
difference between Krauthammer and Lieberman in this regards.
I mean, if you get all teary-eyed every time Len Greenwood launches on
“God Bless the USA”, chances are you are someone Hasam was dealing
with on a daily basis that took him past his tipping point.
The Army is not the problem, but a metaphor from the Vietnam war is
pertinent in this respects: what ever the Army does to correct this
problem is largely an exercise in mopping up the living room while the
spigot is open in the kitchen. This spiritual corruption reflects the
core values of Rush Limbaugh’s demographics and the political agenda
associated with the laissez-faire, gold-based, Free Market principles
of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s conservatism and the Karl Rove wing of
the GOP and it’s brought into the military community with normal
recruiting practices. After all, Hasam enlisted in the Army after
Andrew Sullivan tries to separate his ideal of conservatism from the
reality of applied conservatism, but he is kidding himself. There is
no there, there: conservatism is an ideology based on fallacy,
bigotry, greed, fear, hate and practical stupidity. What you see in
the Tea Parties is the true fruit of the conservative vineyard: a
constant appeal bigotry, ignorance and the lynch mob.
From the perspective of George Casey, The Points of Light Program isdesigned to turn off the spigot in the kitchen. One of the reasons
why I am promoting the participation of the Army Community Services in
the development and distribution of The Points of Light Program is to
leverage the real “band of brothers” values of the Army community to
restore the spiritual health of the larger American community. The
esprit de corps that defines the Army hasn’t existed in the civilian
community in Vietnam: it’s a partial cost of the All-Volunteer Army.
And that’s the truth.
