America First?

Cara Remal compares today’s anti-war leftists to yesterday’s right-wing America Firsters, among others.
She includes some fascinating Dr. Seuss cartoons from World War II. One shows a woman reading a story to her children.

And the wolf chewed up the children and spit out their bones…But those were foreign children and it didn’t really matter.

Keith Berry was furious.
He thinks Cara is “rubbish,” and provides this obnoxious response:

[W]ho gives a fat rat’s ass if the Iraqi people are sleeping better when compared to the deaths of nearly 400 American men and women?

I can’t think of the last time I read such a counterproductive rebuttal. Who gives a fat rat’s ass about the Iraqis? Well, I do. But to Keith Berry the dead children were foreign children, so they didn’t really matter.
Nice attitude, Keith. It is oh so liberal and inspiring.
