Belafonte now halucinating about Homeland Security

Fair disclosure, folks: my work involves a number of projects and member agencies of the Department of Homeland Security. (And yes, that's the end of that particular line of discussion.)

Singer-turned-raving, barking moonbat Harry Belafonte apparently decided his screed about George Bush being the biggest terrorist in the world wasn't quite unhinged enough. In order to keep seeing his fading name in print he has now likened the Department of Homeland Security to the Gestapo. That would make all the people I work with on a daily basis - caring professionals, all - the sadistic murderers in black uniforms.

I popped an instant message to one of those colleagues this morning about this story and asked him if there'd been a memo about the uniform change. He replied:

::::::::Yeah sure. The fittings are sked for Monday. So, which is it? Are we the brutal jackboots tossing every protester into a camp ruthlessly or the bumbling ineffective idiots who cant secure the border?::::::::

I told him I'd have to get back to him.

Belafonte's an idiot, plain and simple. I'm not ready to call him a traitor but there are powerful arguments born of his own actions for that label to be applied. He's also delusional if he thinks he's got millions of people in this country that feel he's dead right. That, perhaps, is the root explanation for his actions recently. After having worked directly with his "Gestapo" I can say emphatically he's completely wrong in this latest tantrum. He'd know that if he'd taken 10 minutes to examine the evidence but that would imply he's not making his mind up over nothing but his blinding hatred of George Bush and the attendant overlap with anything having to do with Bush's Party or viewpoints.
