Michelle Malkin on Seattle's very-patriotic liberals.

Lauraw tipped me over the weekend to the Seattle-PI article Malkin discusses, but I didn't post it at the time.

Enjoy Every Sandwich has an interesting catch in his postings for Saturday. (Scan down for the Truth about Michael Moore article; he doesn't have permalinks. And be warned! He's three times dirtier than me, and Friday's postings contain a big picture of that Norwegian couple having sex on stage at a rock-concert.)

Michael Moore called Paul Berman, a member of the respectable (which is to say, not-anti-American) left a "traitor to the left" when he attempted to publish a critique of the Sandanistas in the magazine Moore was editing at the time, the noxious leftist drivel Mother Jones. Moore spiked the article.

So apparently Moore trafficks in that charge he claims he so reviles-- the charge of being traitorous. I'd be curious to know why he thinks it's fair game to call someone a "traitor to the left" but why it's completely out of bounds to call him what he clearly is, a traitor -- in his heart, at least -- to America.

I think I know the answer: because Michael Moore cares about, loves, and believes in the left, but he does not similarly have much regard for America. In his view, one can be a traitor to a noble cause -- such as leftism -- but one can't be a traitor to an evil enterprise, such as the country we all live in.

When confronted with stuff like this, the left always talks about a "higher patriotism." But obviously "higher patriotism" isn't ordinary patriotism as it has been understood for 5,000 years of human history, or else there would be no need for that telltale modifier "higher."

If a man screws everything that moves, he might tell his wife he has a "higher fidelity" to her, a fidelity of the heart, a "real" fidelity that ignores bourgeois concepts of sexual monogamy. Whether the wife buys this bullshit or not, it can't be argued this "higher fidelity" bears much resemblance to fidelity as we usually understand it.
