Someone that I would presume to be what is commonly called a liberal sent this e-mail message to the editor of a conservative weblog:
From: Jay Leet (JAYL80@*********)
"It's hard to take you seriously when you call it "mustard gas" you ignorant fool. It's "Muster Gas". As if Saddam was killing people with gas made from mustard...you retard."
Mustard Gas is the common name for a blister agent that was invented and used by both sides in the First World War. (Hitler was hospitalized for exposure to it.)
Here's what one website said on the subject of Mustard Gas as used during that war:
The skin of victims of mustard gas blistered, the eyes became very sore and they began to vomit. Mustard gas caused internal and external bleeding and attacked the bronchial tubes, stripping off the mucous membrane. This was extremely painful and most soldiers had to be strapped to their beds. It usually took a person four or five weeks to die of mustard gas poisoning. One nurse, Vera Brittain, wrote: "I wish those people who talk about going on with this war whatever it costs could see the soldiers suffering from mustard gas poisoning. Great mustard-coloured blisters, blind eyes, all sticky and stuck together, always fighting for breath, with voices a mere whisper, saying that their throats are closing and they know they will choke."
The original plan for the seizure of the island of Iwo Jima called for the saturation bombardment of the island with Mustard Gas munitions. President Roosevelt personally vetoed this part of the plan.
But now a liberal (or as some of them prefer to call themselves, a progressive) decides to strike a pose of intellectual superiority to a conservative by mentally rewriting reality.
Mustard Gas... blank out... "It's 'Muster Gas'".
But reality cannot rewritten by the wish of anyone, no matter what their intentions or ideology. Instead of objectively observing the real world and thus learning how to become the master of it, liberals (or as some of them prefer to call themselves, progressives) willfully ignore the facts of reality and stumble about in a surreal fog from error to error, to ultimately stumble about from disaster to disaster.
The liberals (or as some of them prefer to call themselves, progressives) openly state their desire to rule over the whole of Humanity and then proceed to conclusively demonstrate that they are totally unfit to do so.
