Move Over Cindy Sheehan. There's A New Shameless Parent In The Media Spotlight: Michael Berg.

Michael Berg, the father of Nick Berg, who was horridly beheaded by recently deceased, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his band of bloodthirsty, demon possessed Islamo-Fascists, has decided to follow the shameful path that Cindy Sheehan paved. That is, he is using his son’s death to catapult him into the spotlight so that he can spew out his leftist, anti-Bush diatribe.

In a story found here, Mr. Berg makes the following statement:

"I will not take joy in the death of a fellow human, even the human being who killed my son."

There are two ways to look at this statement. First, assuming that he really means what he says, then he apparently is a hypocrite. Consider the following statement he made in a CNN interview that he made found here:

“Well, my reaction is I'm sorry whenever any human being dies. Zarqawi is a human being. He has a family who are reacting just as my family reacted when Nick was killed, and I feel bad for that.”

So, for someone who “values human beings” to not feel happy when a monster like Zarqawi is killed, whose mission was to slaughter human beings indiscriminately, human beings whose lives Mr. Berg professes to care about, indicates quite clearly that Mr. Berg does not, in fact, care about human beings. Just about monsters like Zarqawi who kill human beings, like his son Nick.

One wonders. Does Mr. Berg morn the death of Adolph Hitler? Lenin? Stalin? Genghis Khan?

And now for the second way to look at Mr. Berg's condescending statement. And that is, of course, the truth of the matter is that Mr. Berg, like the rest of the leftists in this country, is using spin, and arrogantly proclaiming his positions to be morally superior, like Mr. Berg’s sanctimonious, “I am so superior morally. See, I have the ability to forgive and praise the very man who murdered my son!” He is manufacturing condescending claptrap to hide behind in order to disguise the fact that what he really means is:

the death of my son be damned! It’s all Bush’s fault! Who cares about our men and women of the Armed Forces who are sacrificing all to prevent another 9/11, what’s more important is getting liberals back into political power, and back into the ability to affect the shaping of this country away from the Founding Fathers’ vision and toward the liberal communist/socialist vision.

Move over Cindy Sheehan. You have company. Along with the “Jersey Girls” that Ann Coulter has had the courage to stand up to in her new book: “Godless: The Church Of Liberalism”, Mr. Berg is vying for the spotlight you've been enjoying. It would appear that lousy parents like you are not so rare.

Any parent who would use their child’s death as an opportunity to get into the media spotlight so that they can get their agenda heard cannot really claim to love their child. Clearly, if they loved their child, they would be far too busy coming to terms with their sorrow and loss to wax political.

Mr. Berg. You want to blame our President for the loss of your son because Saddam Hussien’s evil regime was targeted to be toppled. I have some grim news for you. The only person responsible for your son’s life is the man whose death you mourn, Abu Musab Zarqawi. The only other reason for your son’s death was his bad decision to enter an extremely dangerous area like Iraq and become a target. After all, the horrendous beheading of journalist, Daniel Pearl was our first clue as to just what we could expect from the vermin we are fighting. However, despite your son’s poor judgment, the fact remains that the blame for your son’s brutal murder rests with the “human being” you want us all to believe that you care so much about, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

You sir, are shameless and aren't really worth any more of America's attention.
