When I was a child (1950) I was in thrall to movies like The Prince Who Was a Thief and Thief of Bagdad. While the latter won Academy Awards for art direction, color cinematography, and special effects, the former would be practically unwatchable today.
One of the reasons children can enjoy films like The Prince Who Was a Thief is that children are not critical; they find no need to notice Tony Curtis' horrible New York accent which is rather jarring in an Arabic setting. The plot is so-so but the acting is pretty horrible for sophisticated audiences. But I loved it. Children watching movies is rather like liberals when they consider Islamic atrocities. The left will accept any Muslim barbarity or attack against the West as if it were an inconsequential plotline in a film. After all, no one who watched War of the Worlds actually believed we were in any danger of attack from Martians.
In the same manner Liberals will treat factual news reports of Muslim attacks against the West as "Bush Fear-Mongering". And in the few instances when they have to admit that something horrible happened, such as the WTC attack, because it's impossible to deny the hole in the ground, they deny Muslim responsibility and instead blame it on Bush himself bringing it down, or if that doesn't fly, that Bush knew about it in advance and did nothing just so he could attack Iraq two years later knowing full well that Saddam would refuse at the peril of invasion to let weapons inspectors in (how did Bush know that Saddam wouldn't blink? Crafty devil that Bush), or if that's too far-fetched, Bush had the Mossad do the demolition, etc. ad nauseum. Just like little children who want to deny that they raided the cookie jar and instead blame the missing cookies on elves or aliens from another planet, so too will Liberals spin the most outrageous contortions of fantasy rather than accept the simple, unspun reality: Islam is evil and a danger to the Western World. Those who disagree cannot give real world examples to counter that argument and so throw up accusations of racism or bigotry. How would they have sounded 80 years ago?
