Addendum to the Denunciation of Michael Berg, Traitor
I have located even more bizarre and treasonous statements by Michael Berg:

"It was a coup d'etat. At first a bloodless coup d'etat, but, unfortunately, afterward it has become very bloody."

--(ed., This is either about the Patriot Act or President Bush's election; the context is not entirely clear.)

"The al-Qaida people are probably just as bad as they are, but this administration did this."

Sources: First seen here at Wizbangblog; entire story here at the Times-Herald.

I took some criticism from some people in another setting for my position, not because they agreed with Michael Berg, but because they thought it was out of line to criticize someone who recently lost his son. They generally argue that Michael Berg was just lashing out in anger and grief.

While I can understand this viewpoint, I disagree with it. Michael Berg willingly stepped in front of microphones to offer his warped leftist opinions. He could have retreated to mourn privately. He did not. He could have offered a short statement of grief and praise for his son. He did not. Instead, he took to the airwaves to issue a screed against the administration, a screed not limited to the events surrounding his son's death, but including the policies that the government enacted in the wake of 9/11 and perhaps even the election of the current administration. Making matters worse, Michael Berg even claimed that al-Qaida, a terrorist organization dedicated to the spread of radical Islam throughout the world and to the destruction of Western civilization, was morally equivalent, if not superior, to the Bush Administration. He is publicly stating that the terrorists are better than America, and this statement is only the latest in a long line of left-wing buffoonery offered by this man. Now, however, he's waving his own son's bloody shirt from his treasonous soapbox, an utterly disgusting political ploy.

The denunciation of Michael Berg stands.
