I am about to leave for Los Angeles and before doing so, I'd like to tell you about the people I came across in San Francisco. People who hate their own government and even have no desire of working for, what they call it, their oppressive country. One thing you notice in cities like San Francisco, Bay area and other left wing cities, is the people's hatred for their own selves and the sense of self-victimization among the so-called intellectuals. You know, they feel the world hates the US and its people and it is their fault that the universe hates them.
It's just amazing to see people who were lucky enough to be born and raised in the US but hate the very country that has given them freedom to hate this or that.
Many people told me that president Bush wants to hurt my country and when I told them no, he doesn't wish to do so and he is a honorable man, many started yelling at me or asking me if I live in this planet. I asked them would it be okay for you guys to see people of Europe under the rule of Nazis or Iraqis being tortured or killed under the rule of Saddam and all I heard was that Bush lied, we invaded a country that never hurt the US and the most funny thing they told me was that they need to see more evidence of Nazis crimes or Saddam's crimes against their own people. To them, America is the world's biggest oppressor since the US is oppressing Cubans, Mexicans, Iraqis, Iranians and even Europeans. To them, Sept. 11th terrorist attacks could be an inside job and the US is fighting the terrorism for more oil and natural resources. They are for illegal immigration from Latin America to the US. They are for appeasing the Mullahs of Iran. These people don't understand what a weak US means and when I told them that a less strong US won't be able to stand against the communist China or Islamic militants, they seemed not to care. They have been raised in such a safe and free country that they can't fathom what real oppression means or does.
These people's mentality is sick. I have no doubt about it. They hate themselves to a point where they can't see others at all. It was incredible to see how they dislike every thing about themselves.
They couldn't understand when I kept telling them most of the world's hatred for the US is based on jealousy and historical animosity but they were really unable to comprehend it. It's really unfortunate that these people have closed their eyes on reality and live in their miserable land of dreams in which they have no sense of honor and understanding.
