I used to get blue in the face every time I would see some hypocrisy on the left and try to point it out to them. It was like talking to a brick wall. Think Joy Behar. Yeah, that kind of brick wall. That harpie still goes on and on about how many vacations Bush took during his presidency. Does this fool not watch anything else other than her own HLN show and The View? Then I ran across a piece in Mother Jones a while back, written by some Obamabot named Kevin Drum. After reading his piece “Obama, Libya, and Me,” I had a V-8 moment. “AAAaaahhh! I get it now!” It’s not hypocrisy to these tools – it’s BLIND LOYALTY!
So what should I think about this? If it had been my call, I wouldn’t have gone into Libya. But the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I’d literally trust his judgment over my own. I think he’s smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted. I voted for him because I trust his judgment, and I still do.
In this insane political environment in which we find ourselves after the horrible tragedy in Tucson last Saturday, we have renewed calls from various officials, pundits, journalists, and even lawmakers floating ludicrous proposals to ‘tone down the rhetoric,’ ‘tamp down the vitriol,’ and change the political climate; all by creating new laws and regulations regarding speech, certain words in general, and, yes, even symbols.
So I’ve taken the time to give them some example of this “vitriolic rhetoric” and how they’re used in our everyday conversations, so the new Speech Police will be able to more easily recognize these inflammatory terms and phrases when they’re encountered.
Yes, this list is ridiculously long, but the wailing and gnashing of teeth, sweating of brow, and fretting over such terms and phrases is just as ridiculous; not necessarily in length but in breadth of insanity.
So, here we go. These are the things that we may no longer be able to say, and phrases we may no longer be able to use (in print or orally) once the Speech Police have gotten their way.
Unbelievable hatred, vitriol, and criminal death wishes and threats to Sarah Palin!
Please share this with your friends, and report each and every Twitter user who makes these threats. The left is doing this to the right and getting folks investigated for alleged hate speech, so let’s make use of our taxpayer-funded Secret Service! Sarah still gets some protection as a former VP Candidate, so GO FOR IT!
These words are not just idle wishes… they are THREATS!
Wow… just wow. All the other interviews I’ve seen today with Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, he only thinly veiled his accusations at the Tea Party, conservative talk radio, and Fox News. However tonight on Geraldo, Sheriff Dupnik indicted BY NAME both Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin as people who he sees as responsible for the horrific mass shooting in Arizona on Saturday. Sheriff Dupnik even admits, in his responses, that he is a member of the “left,” and that he thinks conservatives are responsible for the all the anger in this country. Has the good Sheriff never been to the DailyKos website? /sarc
By the way, don’t you think for one minute that Geraldo himself didn’t (probably), off-camera, prompt him to do so. This is just a supposition on my part, but knowing Geraldo’s past rants about gun control, his anti-Tea-Party sentiment, and anti-anti-illegal-alien views, it would not surprise me one bit. Gerlado thinks all white Americans are bigots against all “brown” people, and he is no fan of the Tea Party. All you have to do is Google his name and “Tea Party,” and you will find he’s made a living off of accusations in the past that the Tea Party is a racist movement. He is a freakin’ clueless sycophant of the left.
It’s amazing what I’m finding on the web tonight, seeing the libs and progressives jumping to conclusions about the motives of Jared Loughner, when nobody can really know what was in his mind. We do know, however, from other details, that he’s most probably not a tea party afficionado or devotee. Nevertheless, teh oh-so-tolerant lefites have some warm affection and love to send to the Tea Party conservatives.
I’ll begin with my favorite of all tonight:
“The Tucson Tea Party will be made to pay for the blood on their hands. An eye for an eye. You want a civil war, you got one. KILL Jesse Kelly for his role, then KILL Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Gleen Beck. Whoever puts BULLETS in ther HEADSshall be a NATIONAL HERO.”
That’s just from one commenter in a story in The Hill today. Here’s a screenshot of the entire comment – I’m hoping that someone will share this with the appropriate law enforcement personnel.
Here are some more gems I’ve found, with corresponding annotation:
