http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=22346 Taunting in a Time of War by Brett Winterble As we pass the 6th Anniversary of 9/11, one thing is clear -- America has lost the art of the taunt. Don’t confuse that statement with a call for further coarsening of the culture, or for people to engage in more insulting discourse -- we already have plenty of that over at the liberal hate blogs. Just take a trip into New York City or Boston, or Philadelphia or Chicago and at any given time, you can be told to “drop dead” in dozens of creative ways and foreign languages. That’s the great global tradition of insults -- I am talking about something different, something special, I am talking about the uniquely American, lost art of the Taunt. SNIP ... “TAUNT” That was the headline on the Drudge Report, for most of 9/11/07 -- Bin Laden calling us out, telling us we were beaten and weak. Osama was telling us that weren’t man enough to take him down. Osama was telling us not only did he knock down our towers and hit the Pentagon on 911 but also that he was recruiting an army of martyrs to do it again and again and again. SNIP The left wants us to apologize while simultaneously striking our foes -- scratch that, they just want us to apologize for putting those towers in the way of Al Qaeda. They want us to submit, to surrender but never hit back, even verbally. Its absurd; hell we ought to start talking abou reparations to the worldwide jihad movement now before any one gets their feelings hurt. Well, I for one say it ends now: it’s time to go full court taunt. We need to strike these guys at their core -- at their manhood. We need to portray Osama and Mahmood foot tapping each other in a men’s room stall. We need to recut Brokeback Mountain with Bashsar Assad and Ayman Al Zawahiri as the lonely cowboys…We need to call these jihadis the sissy men that they are and laugh at them. We need to stop respecting our enemies and start beating them. They need to be dehumanized because they are not human. We need to make 'em quake with our taunts. We need to beat them AND make them feel bad. Our national honor demands it. Who’s with me? Hey, Osama: be afraid. Be very afraid. We’re sending a bunch of little blue-haired grannies to kick your butt. They’re sick and tired of being searched at airports.
