Speaking of Moonbats

Harry Belafonte, as you may have heard, went off on another barely coherent political rant:

Entertainer Harry Belafonte, one of the Bush administration’s harshest critics, compared the national Homeland Security department to the Gestapo and attacked the president as a liar during a fiery Saturday speech.

“We’ve come to this dark time in which the Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended... You can be arrested and not charged, you can be arrested and have no right to counsel,” said Belafonte, who called President Bush “the greatest terrorist in the world” during a trip to Venezuela two weeks ago. Belafonte, 78, made that comment after a meeting with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

That would be the same Hugo Chavez accused of electoral fraud, human rights violations, political repression, and virulent anti-semitism.

After the speech, Belafonte was arrested and sentenced -- without trial -- to fifteen years at Gitmo.

The phrase "out-of-touch" isn't quite sufficient to deal with the likes of Belafonte, whose Moonbat-Blinders™ keep him sufficiently insulated from all events occurring in the real world.
