When the world’s most wanted terrorist endorses your book and encourages Americans to read it, most people would be outraged or at least ashamed, but William Blum is “amused.”
In his most recent tape, Osama bin Laden told Americans, “It is useful for you to read the book ‘The Rogue State.'”
Blum does not mind the endorsement. “I was glad. I knew it would help the book’s sales and I was not bothered by who it was coming from,” said Blum. “If he shares with me a deep dislike for the certain aspects of U.S. foreign policy, then I’m not going to spurn any endorsement of the book by him. I think it’s good that he shares those views and I’m not turned off by that.”
At least Blum sees the benefit of capitalism, since he will gladly take a terrorist recommending his book if it will make him some more money. Other than that, he is an absolute moron. How do you hear an endorsement from a man who is responsible for 3,000 American deaths on one day and say, “Great, we both dislike US policy”?
How do you liberals put up with someone like this? Sure conservatives have their nut jobs, but they are regularly called such and dismissed. Blum just had his stock soar in liberal circles because a terrorist loved his book.
I know, I know, how dare I question the patriotism of liberals. But you know what, if you don’t denounce a man who heartily accepts praise from Osama consider your patriotism (and sanity) questioned.
