People are Crazy

I've got a friend whose generic reaction to people's actions is "People are stupid." My counter usually is "No, people are crazy."

The head guy at DailyKos posts about torture, equating Saddam's rapists on the payroll and women and children being tortured to death in front of their husbands and father with someone being hogtied and left in that position for maybe a day.

Specifically, he says: "The torture that was so bad under Saddam, is equally bad under U.S. command."

I agree with TexasBestGrok. This is BULLSHIT. And it is so offensive that the "People are crazy" meme is in force. For most practical purposes, The DailyKos is delusional. One doesn't try to argue with delusional people, one ignores what they say, watches what they do, and tries to stop any harm from happening.

I don't usually read left-leaning political blogs, I get enough of that mindset from the media and acquaintances. Now I know why.
