Why I Hate Conservatives

National Review on Martha Stewart’s conviction:

What do I think about Martha? I’ve been asked that a lot during the past few months. And here’s the truth: Both sorry for her and a bit snicker-y. — Myrna Blyth

Justice was done — Andrew C. McCarthy

I’m anything but a fan of Martha Stewart, and the idea of her stuck in a cage making baskets of potpourri for the next two years is not at all unappealing. — Stephen Moore

Sure, no one is above the law; lying is wrong; and there was strong evidence that she had committed the crimes with which she was charged. Nothing in this column is intended to contradict any of these arguments. — John O’Sullivan

That Stewart was convicted anyway attests to just how patently inexcusable her behavior was. — Andrew C. McCarthy

Heartwarming, isn’t it?

The “supportive” article above is distinguished as such only by its lack of chimpanzee-hoots of delight at the prospect of another human being getting stuffed into a cage for disposing of her property as she saw fit. “No one is above the law”, O’Sullivan? Bullshit – everyone’s above the law, not the least of whom is Martha Stewart. “Lying is wrong”? Not to the Feds, not about what is properly no one’s damn’ business but Martha’s own. “Strong evidence she had committed the crimes”? I sincerely hope she did: “insider trading” is simply collectivist-speak for “smarter than the law allows”.

Could any one of those goofs above accomplish the sheer amount of literal goodness that Martha Stewart has? Could they even make an attempt? And they sneer at her, and cheerlead the institutions that drug her down.

“Hatred of the good for being the good”. It’s real, and alive and thriving at National Review.

  1. The sick thing is that from what I hear, even Martha hasn’t turned against the state. This travesty of justice hasn’t made her realize what a politically-pandering sham it all is. I can only hope that her time in jail changes this. She has enough money to be a powerful opponent to the state.

  2. It makes no sense politically to oppose the institution which could shut her businesses down, confiscate her wealth, and dump her in prison, destitute, for life. She’s already seen what ends the state will go to for a witchhunt.

  3. Quite the contrary: it WOULD MAKE sense to start COMBATTING the feds in politics,

    …If participating in their scam did anything at all other than to prop up their whole rotten edifice. Which it doesn’t.

    Well, she should join Libertarian Party,

    Unlike LP’ers, Martha has better things to do with her time than play-act at politics.

    …and make a special point of ENDING THE INSIDER TRADING REGULATIONS.

    Yeah, that’s a vote-getter. Sure.

    Quite the contrary: it WOULD MAKE sense to start COMBATTING the feds in politics, and organise others to combat them. Well, she should join Libertarian Party, and make a special point of ENDING THE INSIDER TRADING REGULATIONS. If she hasn’t broken any law during her activism, the feds could do NOTHING against her; after all ,they have to register even those PACs that oppose the state and taxation altogether. It’s good to show them your “middle finger”.

  5. F**CK THE FEDS !!! What a band of jealous, stupid, envious thugs they are !!!
    They have caged this noble woman because she doesn’t comply with their TYRANNIC rules on ‘insider trading’. Or, maybe because they hate the people of Polish origin? Who can exclude the latter possibility? When there is some Black or Hispanic person persecuted, accusations of ‘racism’ quickly come up. I know that lots of US FEDS _HATE_ Polish people, the “best” example is how they treat us at the US embassies, or how do they see visa-related issues. Polish soldiers are sheding their own blood in Iraq, and yet the xenophobes in US Federal Congress don’t want to allow the peaceful, hard-working, honest Polish people to enter the country they love the most (well, after Poland) : United States of America. They feds are promoting HATRED betweens Polish and Americans, instead of uniting our peoples in friendship. DOWN WITH THE FEDS!!!
