Of course they aren’t obsessed, they are feces dribbling scared.
I’ve been chewing over this wonderful little missive from the socialism according to David Sirota:
I know I should be mortified by the lobbyist-organized mobs of angry Brooks Brothers mannequins who are now making headlines by shutting down congressional town hall meetings. I know I should be despondent during this, the Khaki Pants Offensive in the Great American Health Care and Tax War. And yet, I’m euphorically repeating one word over and over again with a big grin on my face.
Finally, there’s no pretense. Finally, the Me-First, Screw-Everyone-Else Crowd’s ugliest traits are there for all to behold.
Let’s run through the list:
1. denigration of protesters who are too well dressed – check
2. setting up strawman that opposing socialism and healthcare takover by Obama and the government is simply selfishness – check
3. implication that only those who want to steal somebody else’s money to “give” “free” “healthcare” to those who won’t pay for it – check
Its very rare that liberals will flat come out and say so clearly that a) you have something they want and b) they will steal it from you at the barrel of a gun.
What They Will Scream: But 38.5 percent is disproportionately high! See? You’ve proved that the rich “contribute more than their share” of taxes!
What You Should Say: Actually, they are paying almost exactly “their share.” According to the data, the wealthiest 5 percent of America pays 38.5 percent of the total taxes precisely because they make just about that share — a whopping 36.5 percent! — of total national income.
Note that a) this admits that the ‘rich’ are already paying a disproportionate share of taxes and b) these stats don’t include the complete and utter rape that will occur if the Democrat plan as proposed in the house passes.
So if you want to actually keep the money you earn – and note he’s saying that whatever you are paying now its not enough – you are just a Me-First Selfish person.
Of course, he reveals himself as a thief, but that’s the truth of liberalism.<.p>
Just how crazy is Liberal America now? All men are animals – which is what the political correctness indoctrination from age 5 has told every woman – so this guy had better learn to walk somewhere that there are no women. Or within several feet of a woman’s personal space.
The article at the Jerusalem Post notes:
Seventeen blown apart shopping in Istanbul; eight children gunned down at a Jerusalem school; 58 slaughtered in front of the Indian Embassy in Kabul. These are just some examples of the terrorist atrocities that plagued the world in the past year. Yet NGO superpower Human Rights Watch, winner of this year’s UN Prize for Human Rights, did not find these incidents of mass murder and violations of the most sacred of human rights, the right to life, significant enough to merit a single comment. Instead, it spends millions attacking Western democracies for doing their best to protect civil liberties and fight terror in an age where its perpetrators have no respect for human life and are driven purely by hate and religious fanaticism.
Just another leftist anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-selfhateing bunch. You go to their website just today (find it on your own – I don’t want to give them any help) and there are links about how US Trade shouldn’t actually expand (and therefore make everyone in the world better off), bashing Israel over Palestinian land rights (and saying nothing about the murder of Jews by Palestinians at all), blah blah blah blah. Pick your liberal shibboleth and there is your link.
Just as Amnesty International is concerned only with American violations of terrorist rights, so Human Rights Watch becomes yet nother turd in the bucket of liberal organizations.
Just a wonderful post over at The American Thinker about why the left doesn’t understand conservatives, but how we do understand the “progressives”. I just wish I could write as well as this:
But we also know that when liberals look at conservatives, no such courtesy or openness of mind is extended. They don’t see considered issues, critical thought, or the faintest possibility of reason. They see white trash men waving bibles at teen brides, while a gaggle of kids groom each other for lice on a cracked linoleum floor. ‘Bitter clingers’ who mindlessly adhere to second-amendment rights so they can shoot baby possum off a tin fence on slow friday nights. The other sort of conservative invariably invokes 19th century robber barons, plutocrat industrialists swollen with loot plundered from the proletariat, abating their whipping of Dickensian child labor just long enough to polish a monocle.
The whole thing is very much worth your time. And I will swallow my jealousy and get to work on my writing skills. Which is probably another conservative thing liberals don’t get. I know I need to work harder – they just expect someone to forgive their spelling.
Holy cow – can you say “dissent is patriotic”? Jon Voight says this:
If Mr. Obama had his way, he would have pulled our troops from Iraq years ago and initiated an unprecedented bloodbath, turning over that country to the barbarianism of our enemies. With what he has openly stated about his plans for our military, and his lack of understanding about the true nature of our enemies, there’s not a cell in my body that can accept the idea that Mr. Obama can keep us safe from the terrorists around the world, and from Iran, which is making great strides toward getting the atomic bomb. And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend.
And those dissent loving minons of progressivism come up with this very reasoned response:
It’s my intention to point out with delicious, delicious schadenfreude that Republicans are so hopelessly adrift that they are now resigned to soliciting quasi-intelligible screeds from discharged old actors with closets full of browned pants and boogeymen.
Explains why a Champion for Social Justice like Angelina is doesn’t like her daddy too much.
and caring understanding and support of dissent like:
OK, Jon Boy, you just turned “mildly amusing in deluded old senior fashion” and went full bore into p@ss me the f@@k OFF mode. You stupid sh@t, your g@dd@mned Repubilcan’ts and their “Corporations and the Wealthy First and Only, F@@k the Rest of The World” way of running things ruined America economically, defensively, judicially, in education and on the world platform.
but at least they respect his right to disagree with them.
The Anti-Idotarian Rotweiller gives a good overview on the latest idiocy from the Goracle (beware – the Emperor uses strong, strong language):
To begin to fix all the problems, Gore said, “the answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels.”
“And to that end, I aim to wave my magic Gorebecile Wand and, by spreading fairy dust all over the nation, come up with replacements for carbon-based fuels overnight.”
Gore called on the country to produce all of its electricity from renewable and carbon-free sources in 10 years, a goal he compared to President Kennedy’s challenge for the country to put a man on the moon in the 1960s.
Modest as always, we see. But wait, we always thought that it was the Gorebecile who put a man on the Moon. Or was the Gorebecile actually the first man on the Moon? Nevermind. We’re pretty sure that he took the initiative in creating the science of rocket propulsion.
Gore chastised those who have proposed opening new areas for oil drilling as a solution to U.S. energy problems.
“It is only a truly dysfunctional system that would buy into the perverse logic that the short-term answer to high gasoline prices is drilling for more oil 10 years from now,” Gore said.
Alas, if only the Gorebecile had flunked out of a business school instead of failing Bible 101 in seminary, he would understand enough about this whole supply and demand thing to know that he’s a blithering buttskate. Also, we find it interesting that drilling now with an eye to increasing supply within 7 years (or shorter. You really have to stay up to date on these things, Gorebecile) is “dysfunctional” and “perverse”, while throwing everything we have out the window while hoping and praying fervently that a suitable replacement will automagically turn up within 10 years ISN’T.
Practicing what they preach – here’s how the Great and Powerful Gore arrived at this speech – along with all his supporters who are following his every word too:
The People’s Cube has a wonderful one:
