“I think it’s going to take a lot of dead people to wake America up.”

Via ThinkProgress: FoxNews anchor John Gibson interviews ‘new 9/11’ cheerleader Stu Bykofsky, seconds the controversial Philadelphia Daily News columinst’s call for another deadly attack on the US:

Atrios nails it:

All of these calls for “unity” and prayers that thousands of people die so that people “wake up” have nothing to do with anyone preventing the Bush administration from doing what they want. They’re simply expressing a deep anger that the dirty fucking hippies don’t agree with everything they say. Ultimately, they’re angry that their pet war isn’t going well and angry that the dirty fucking hippies don’t rely on quite as many adult undergarments as they do.

When it comes to monumental events that have truly “united” Americans, I prefer to wax nostalgic over more positive occurrences that didn’t result in, um, mass casualties:

YMMV.

  1. Well said, brother. These folks are gleeful with anticipation over the next atrocity. They love when something terrible happens because then they can justify all of their hateful negativity. John Gibson is not a happy man unless you’re angry and afraid…
