Patty Murray, material girl

When I read the words about Osama bin Laden attributed to Sen.
Patty Murray in an address to high-school students, I was almost
certain it was a joke. It had to be some kind of parody, a spoof, a
satire. Surely no one – certainly not a U.S. senator – could be that
In case you missed it, Murray, D-Wash., explained to Columbia River
High School students in Vancouver why bin Laden is so popular around
the world with his constituents.
Bin Laden, she said, has been "out
in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads,
building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building
heath-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We
haven't done that."
Now there are several ways to attack this statement – so many, in
fact, it's difficult to know where to begin.
First, it's just not true that bin Laden has done any of these
things. True, his family is in the construction business, but they get
paid billions of dollars for building things. No, bin Laden –
certainly not the terrorist-killer Osama – has ever built anything out
of a sense of charity.
But what really struck me as so absurd about the statement was the
notion that bin Laden has built day-care centers. Just think
about that! There are no day-care centers in an Islamist society,
except the built-in day-care center that every family has – the
mother. The idea that Islamists would build day-care centers to permit
women to work is one of the reasons I was so sure Murray was the
subject of a hoax. But no. She wasn't kidding. She really said these
words. And she really meant them.
What Murray said about bin Laden provides more insight into the way
her mind works – and the minds of others like her – than it does about
bin Laden. She knows nothing about bin Laden. She knows nothing about
Islam. She knows nothing about foreign affairs or the Middle East or
even the impact of faith and religion upon people.
Patty Murray and most of her friends – and the fools who vote for
her – are "materialists." They believe you can explain most everything
about the world and the way it works on the basis of stuff they can
get their hands on.
To Murray, people only care about their basic needs being met. People
are generally incapable of meeting their own needs in Murray's world.
They always need help from the benevolent forces of government.
Murray, of course, has built her political career around the concept
of forcibly confiscating other people's wealth and redistributing it
to build a power base. That's what she does. That's what she
understands. That's all she knows. In that sense, she's kind of a
Remember Robin Hood? It's said he robbed the rich to give to the
poor. In fact, if you read the old fables and watch the movies, you'll
see he robbed government and gave to the people. Murray and her
colleagues are like reverse Robin Hoods – robbing the people and
giving to government.
She and her friends do this, of course, all the while cloaking
their theft in the language of compassion.
Should it surprise any of us that she now cloaks bin Laden's
actions in the same kind of phony compassion?
In fact, bin Laden's appeal has nothing to do with giving out
goodies to the people. He doesn't do it. And, even if he did, he
couldn't buy the kind of support that would make people kill
themselves for him and his cause.
Bin Laden is tapping into a deep-seated hatred and resentment
against the U.S. and the West – and particularly the rotten
materialistic values of people like Patty Murray. That's what bin
Laden really hates. Sure, he hates Christians. Sure, he hates Jews.
But, just as much, he hates the moral relativism of people like
Murray, who think people's souls are for sale for a bowl of pottage or
"free" health care.
Murray's comments not only betray her ignorance of our enemies,
they betray an underlying sympathy for them – as well as a
If Trent Lott deserved to lose his leadership role in the Senate
for his stupid comments in praise of Sen. Strom Thurmond, surely Patty
Murray should be drummed out of the upper house for her comments in
praise of Osama bin Laden.
