Guilty


  Instead of smugly pleading with blacks not to riot, maybe Democrats could have a word with their white liberal friends.

  These counterfeit victims are so full of their own self-righteousness, they believe they can do anything, lie shamelessly, commit wanton violence, steal from their neighbors, and claim they were acting out of some bizarre sense of self-defense.

  Liberals claim they are victims—victims of pregnancy, victims of the Republican Attack Machine, victims of foreign words meaning “monkey,” victims of Americans angry they have revealed secret coun-terterrorist programs, victims of “AmeriKKKa's imperialism,” victims of redwood assassins, victims of apocryphal right-wing violence. They're not victims—they are guilty.
