Mandy Patinkin Blames America for Terrorist Attacks

Mandy Patinkin

I rarely watch Colbert’s show and last night it took me about 3 minutes to be reminded why.  While flipping channels, I happened to see Colbert interviewing Mandy Patinkin of CSI and Homeland fame – so I thought I would watch it for a few minutes.   They were discussing (if you can call it that) terrorism, the wars in the Middle East, etc.  So here’s how the dialogue went…

Colbert: “So you blame America for the terrorist attacks (against her)”?

Patinkin: “Yes, of course. And I blame them; but I blame America also.”

Colbert: “So what would you do?”

Patinkin: “I would talk to them. Before ever picking up a weapon, I would sit down and talk with them.  I would take some people like you and me and talk.  I would talk myself to death.”

The ludicrousness of that view is almost beyond comprehension.  It’s offensive, infantile, void of understanding the terrorist mind, among many other things.  So would he also say…

Rape – “It was the woman’s fault because she dressed provocatively”

Holocaust – “It was really the Jews fault; if they hadn’t been so greedy, covetous, and insistent on worshiping in their own way.”

Robbery – “It was the victims fault; he shouldn’t have been walking in that neighborhood after dark.”

Pearl Harbor – “America deserved to be attacked by a country they had not provoked.”

The thinking is so obviously ridiculous that it numbs the mind.  The idea that you can “talk” with someone who has committed an act of terrorism is likewise ridiculous.  They don’t want to talk to you; they want you to accept their agenda (whatever that is) with no qualifications and they’ll use violence to accomplish their goals.

While most people abhor violence and want to avoid it at almost any cost, the reality is we live in a world where evil exists – and Evil cannot be reasoned with.  It must be stood up to, defended against, and squashed.
