Powerful Tsunami Footage | Main | Media Smackdown: Jim Pinkerton vs. Tucker Carlson

Ever Wonder What Happened to Michael Moriarity?

One of my favorite actors, he played Ben Stone on Law & Order and "Not Clint Eastwood" in Pale Rider.

Then he got into some sort of public dispute with both Janet Reno and his boss, Dick Wolf, and got fired from L&O.

Now he appears to be some sort of, um, energetic conservative columnist.

At least I think he's some sort of conservative. He's so strident about everything that it's hard to see past the implied exclamation points:

It's fun to watch the worldwide socialist church - the matriarchal, anti-theological and environmental sycophants - scramble for cover in the wake of President George W. Bush's election victory. The next four years will be more than a mop-up of Al Qaeda and North Korea-backed terrorist operations. We'll corner Red Hollywood, Liberal lawyers and politicians, network anchormen and the leader of the pack - soon-to-be United Nations Secretary General William Jefferson Clinton.

Sitting in the demilitarized zone between the English-speaking Free World and a 250-year-old benighted religion called Marxianity - a French-born revolutionary nightmare composed of three traditionally 'sacred' levels: Reform, which is liberal; Orthodox, which is socialist/labor; and Fundamentalist, which is communist - hovering there are the Liberals. Yes, the Liberals are tied to the Communists as American defense is tied to the CIA. The Communists are rooted umbilically by the cord of Socialism, which is the generic definition of this entire economic and social ideology. Given the rest of the world's commitment to a one-world socialist federation under the UN and enthrallment with the New World Order, it is the United States versus the Rest of the World and, at this point in the court of world opinion, we've lost.

However, we Conservatives never assumed the messianic role of saving the entire human race. Karl Marx did that. The socialists and liberals are messianic almost by ideological commitment. Republicans are only concerned with the certainty of American freedom, prosperity and power. We will not surrender one ounce of our hard-earned preeminence as the most vibrant, productive, generous and freedom-loving people in the world. Since I don't believe there is intelligent life on any other planet, let's say that America has the best people in the universe (I'm going 'universal' because that's the meaning of my faith - Catholicism). Certainly they are the sanest people in the world. As head of Mother Earth's psychiatric hospital, President Bush is putting the criminally insane back into lockdown.

...

In the Marxists' best-of-all-possible worlds, a President John Kerry would have been in the Oval Office to welcome the new UN Secretary General Bill Clinton. Their photo ops together on the porch of the White House would be so thrilling to the Left and chilling to the Right - it would be tantamount to an absolute Marxist victory and total surrender of the American Republic to a socialist federation. Glinting in the eyes of the two presidential conquerors, joining hands in the name of a very French idea of the "People," would be the sun bouncing off the rifles of a UN Army as it paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue. Of course, that still may happen should Barack Obama (the newly elected Democratic Senator from Illinois) or Hilary Clinton win the Oval Office prize in 2008.

Mike, Mike, Mike... tone it down a little. This is spook-the-horses type ranting. You can learn a little from Pat Sajak.

Posted by MC Gusto at The Perfect World, where they're having a very spirited, if sometimes nasty, discussion about the politicization of the tsunami and what precisely America "owes" to the world.

Update: Another Moriarity column. Man, he sure seems to have a beef with Barak Obama.
