Last night I watched "The Wizard of Oz" for the first time in years and while I was enjoying the film it suddenly occurred to me that this movie can actually teach us something. I realized that during the scene where Dorothy first arrives in Oz. As you may recall, Dorothy's house is picked up by a tornado and dropped into Munchkinland, falling on the wicked witch of the east (WWE) and killing her. After being reassured by Glenda, the good witch of the north, that Dorothy is not a witch herself the Munchkins emerge from hiding and begin thanking Dorothy for killing the wicked witch of the east. Then they start wondering if the WWE is really dead and then start rejoicing when it's confirmed that she is. The cute little Munchkins sing gleefully over the WWE's demise. It's really quite morbid...and informative.
The Munchkins rejoiced over the death of their enemy. And they were totally unashamed and unapologetic about it, and therein lies the lesson. We should be the same way about the defeat, destruction, and/or death of OUR enemies, from the Reds to the sand Nazis. Every time we blow al-Qaeda operatives to hell we should dance in the streets. Every time Israel scores against Hamas scum we should dance in the streets. When our great troops overthrew the mad tyrant Saddam Husein we should've danced in the streets. When our great troops kicked jihadi ass in Fallujah we should've danced in the streets. When our enemies are destroyed; when our enemies are defeated; when our enemies are scattered before us, WE SHOULD DANCE IN THE STREETS!!!!
Such sentiment is anathema to the PC whipped, left-wing, "peace" crowd. For those people, to achieve victory over our enemies, to kill them and be happy about it, is THE unforgivable sin. And it has nothing to do with hating war. The "peace" crowd is opposed to and appalled by victory, and any celebration thereof, because they are against America not war. This crowd subscribes to a worldview that casts America as uniquely guilty and, consequently, undeserving of the moral right to be right. That's why America winning is so repugnant to them. These people need to be tread under by tanks just like our enemies, because that is exactly what they are.
It's time to kick the "peace" crowd to the curb and follow the example of the adorable Munchkins. They raised their sweet, innocent voices in praise of their enemy's demise and so should we. And this was no quick, painless death they were celebrating. The wicked witch of the east was CRUSHED to death. Yet a joyous cry went out in Munchkinland: Ding! Dong! The witch is dead!
Winning is nothing to be ashamed of. Good SHOULD triumph over evil, and America is the good guy here. We're right; they're wrong. We win; they lose. We kill; they die. And then we CELEBRATE. Just like the Munchkins.
