Come Again Howard Dean?

The more I think about Howard Dean's statements, the more outraged I become. Dean and his brand of pro-choice Democrats think they are agents for good in a battle against evil. Really?

Evil can have a clear face. (WARNING: Links are graphic and highly disturbing).

Evil looks like this and this. Evil also looks like this, this, this, this, this, and this.

Some of those linked images and video depict the heads of decapitated babies, while others show the heads of decapitated hostages. Both were done by the hands of man.

When Dr. Dean spoke of a war between good and evil, he was clearly alluding to Bush's rhetoric in describing the global war on terrorism (GWOT). What is more evil Dr. Dean? Pastors who preach life? Or Islamofascist terrorists?

I am so angry and disgusted, I want to puke.

I have to give you some constructive criticism.

In your post about the movie Million Dollar Baby you went to some trouble not to give away the ending. In the above post you link to some of the most disturbing images ever made available for public viewing, with nothing more than a parenthetical warning about disturbing graphic images. I can't quite put my finger on it, but somehow these two posts juxtaposed are sending a mixed message.

The Anchoress tore into the movie on February 6 with no apologies because it represented the culture of death. Her remarks made me recall The Shoot Horses, Don't They, that nihilistic film from the sixties.[]

I was so impressed with her essay that I decided on that basis alone that I would skip the movie altogether. She makes a good case.
Until now I had only seen two videos of decapitation (now three). That was all I needed. More, actually, because these images have a more corrosive impact on visual memory than pornography. In fact, I imagine that such images are pornographic for some segment of the population.

Those are my observations. Do with them as you will.

I still have a high regard for your blog and continue to include it among my feeds and links.

I'll let Rick take up the substance of your concern about the images, although I will note parenthetically that his warning was enough for me to not open the links. One thing you should keep in mind, however, is that this is a colloborative (some call it a group) blog. The post on Million Dollar Baby was from Matt, not Rick. Not a big deal, but it does explain the stylistic difference in the posts.

Hi John, I tried my best to answer your comments in my most recent post here. I could have warned our viewers better and for that I apologize.
