Funny how the leftists love to see people waterboarded for their personal entertainment at the same time they proclaim it's so cruel and torturous. Does that mean the left love to see others suffer?


could you possibly grow up?
It's okay for ring wingers to use torture as a means of degradation and humiliation

but it's not okay for a left winger to say "i'd watch sean hannity get tortured" ??


Here, let me spell it out for you...i'll even write it in your favorite colored crayon


Those who are opposed to torture are saying its not okay for America to lower its self to our enemies and play their game.. Why? Because we are the United States of America. We are better than that. Our country is founded on better ideals than that. Despite what YOU or any right OR left wingers might think, there are many parts of the world that look to us for what to do next.

Also, to lower yourself to their standards is to embolden the enemy. How?
Because it gives them ammunition for their recruitment

look at what we can make the Americans do




And you, in your ignorance, can try to compare that to what they are saying about Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity said he would do it

Id love to see it happen to Sean Hannity so he can finally be speaking from some experience and realize that Waterboarding is actually a lot more cruel and archaic than he paints the picture to be.

If Sean Hannity loves waterboarding so much, let him become subject to it.

America should be standing on higher morals than that, however.

So should you.

If you left wingers enjoy watching people be waterboarded, that's your psychosis. Enjoy it. I'm just equating what you say shouldn't be done versus what you enjoy as entertainment, that's all.

So should a lot of people. Even the one's who enjoy watching people get waterboarded as entertainment, while preaching how bad it is.

try really hard to absorb this:

It's not about enjoying watching someone get tortured

it's about "if he thinks it's so great...let him subject himself to it"

just because a few kooks said "heh heh i'd love to see that A-hole get waterboarded, screw him"

doesn't mean that it's the Consensus for everyone "on the left"


And now you know
And knowing is half the battle

So not all left wingers are the same?

How about all the right wingers? Are they all the same?

Nope, most of them would have more common sense than to say:

At least the ones I know.

Why should Sean be waterboarded?After all he is not a fanatical muslim extremist.I personally wish they would have just shot those prisoners in the head but hey torture them too...I have no compasion for islamic fundamentalists and people that do should go live under there rule.

Bait much?


Btw, no one is suggesting shooting Mr. Hannity in the head, though it is funny to see him shooting himself in the foot over and over again.

It would probably be a little more funny to watch obama lolol

Hannity should be drug tested before and after the event. I can see that guy taking a few valium before to see if he can strain it out.

He also has the advantage of knowing he can stop it at anytime

Well, it's not true waterboarding then. He has to go in knowing they'll stop when they get good and ready...like right after he wets himself and starts crying like a baby.

Well dog, looks like it's one your psychosis also.

I dare say he can probably hang in there for the full hour not even breaking for commercials.


Did someone say pay per view?

Wonder if Hitchen's was drug tested before and after? Although he only lasted about 7 seconds.

Exactly. From what I read he will be allowed to tap out when he cannot take it anymore. If they really want to be realistic, he needs to be stripped down, bundled up in a rendition Gulfstream manacled and hooded with earphones, taken to points unknown for a while and then let them use the entire playbook.

Knowing you can stop it at anytime simply does not work

Ah I see what you did there ...

You took something I said in humor out of context and used it against me. That's very funny, and original too.


Actually I have no interest whatsoever to see him under any circumstance, especially one contrived by him to boost his ratings.

Jeeze, this is ATS, the only psychosis in effect is of the collapse-variety, as in "collapse psychosis" (or pessimism porn). Hannity talks tough and will not shut up, and why would he? someone pays him 50 million a year to blab on and on. So, yes, I'd like to see how tough he is. If waterboarding is no big deal, he should put water where his mouth is and subject himself to it.

We could ask him if he had a secret crush on Alan Colmes and he would have to say "yes" to make it stop. Now THAT would be funny if it was allowed to happen.

So, if he comes out of it fine, and you enjoy it as much as it sounds like you will, will your opinion of waterboarding as torture change?

Or will you do like dog and just say it was all said in jest?

Did you just text-message this thread? And I get the joke but I really don't. Why say something like that? Oh, wait, you are saying Fox News is the French-nipples, are you not? Well, I must disagree with you, severely. While Fox News does have the Nielsen Ratings (1 household for every 720,000) that demonstrate higher-ranking, they are lower on the totem pole as far as having ethics in journalism.

And for future note: never "lol" me. I am not 14 years old. If you have something to say then say it.

Yes, except the part about Hannity having his head up his own poopmaker, I wasn't joking there.


Anyhoot, as it's already been said this would be no waterboarding, it's just him holding his breath for 30 seconds.

Hell someone just broke the world record for that just today, and in Bahrain of all places, oh the irony.

Like dog? Dog the Bounty Hunter? He's pretty cool I guess.

I am saying it will be funny to seem Hannity abort the waterboarding in under 30 seconds and then say "it wasn't that bad". That would be funny. Now, if there was a time-limit of say, 2 minutes, and there was something that the interrogator/torturer wanted to know, that would be interesting. Then it would be "torture" would it not?

This whole thing started because Rush and Hannity and O'Reilly consider waterboarding "harsh interrogation". They will/must be proven wrong. They need water where their mouths are.

What do you mean, "If waterboarding is no big deal" ?? Who says it's no big deal (Okay, I know there are people that fall into the trap you guys set and do say it - but of course they are comparing it to REAL TORTURE.

This is how you people rationalize water boarding:

"Those people, who are for waterboarding terrorist to get information out of them, must believe that waterboarding is no big deal because we all know that the only way to get information out of terrorists is to utilize torture methods that are no big deal"

Of course, that is a load of crap. People who are FOR waterboarding know it is right up there with TORTURE, but not quite.

If you compare water-boarding to real torture, as in SEVERE PAIN OR SUFFERING it IS only enhanced interrogation. Severe pain and torture being relative, this is severe:

cutting off fingers
slicing flesh with razor blades
cutting off eyelids
raping family members in front of you
electrocution
burning with acid
drowning and giving CPR (i.e. not simulated drowning)
etc.. etc..

War and torture isn't some egalitarian institution. You don't confront an enemy on the battlefield and ask him, "If you think killing me is okay, why don't you just kill yourself and see how much YOU like it!?"

Personally, I think it would be one of the funniest things in the world to see one of you ATS members on the waterboard table, screaming "IF YOU THINK THIS IS OKAY, WHY DON'T YOU TRY IT ON YOURSELF?!?!"



The argument of "If you think it's okay, I'd like to see you try it on yourself" is null because the very BASIS of TORTURE is doing things to other people that you WOULDN'T want done on yourself. You all who speak out against torture in these terms are only verifying that the method is a good one.

I mean hell, telling someone to get waterboarded because YOU think it is so bad doesn't add up.

And of course, you all with your conditional waterboarding arguments: "It's okay to waterboard someone to prove to them that it's bad, or to waterboard a TV personality that we don't like... but it's NOT OKAY to waterboard a terrorist to get information on potential attacks out of them!"

It's like you people don't have your heads screwed on straight.
