So much liberal/socialist/Democrat (LSD) nitwittery, so little time and space to address even a smidgen of it. And that's only since the middle of December. Where to begin?
Well, let's see. There was the appearance of Harry Belafonte on the "Reverend" Al Sharpton's "show" on MSNBC in which has-been Harry called for the imprisonment of anyone who disagrees with the agenda of President Obama. The "Reverend" nodded gravely in agreement. Let's see now...wouldn't that be about half the voting population? 56-57 million people? Sounds doable.
From the LSD point of view, it's probably not a bad idea. There is precedent, after all. LSD Saint Franklin D. Roosevelt incarcerated all Japanese-American citizens, on the grounds that he "feared sabotage" after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Did he not confiscate their property as well? He did? How very interesting.
From the LSD perspective, if Mr. Obama were to incarcerate "the rich," and maybe most of the middle class, he could confiscate their property as well and use it to pay for everything. Brilliant. Thanks a bunch, Harry. Daylight come, and methinks it's time for you to go home now. And please stay there this time.
Then there was ESPN's Rob Parker who slammed Redskins' quarterback Robert Griffin III for his apparent allegiance to the Republican Party and for having a white fiancee.
"Okay, he's black," said Mr. Parker. "But he's not down with the cause. He's not one of us."
The "cause?" Um, the Confederacy is long dead, so that can't be it. Is Mr. Parker upset that RGIII wasn't standing outside the polls with a lead pipe in his hand, dressed as a New Black Panther or something? One of whom, exactly, does he mean when he says "us?" It doesn't sound as if he means "Americans."
Take another look. Nope. No racism there. Plenty of envy though. The indiscreet Mr. Parker was suspended by ESPN, although it's a good bet he'll be reinstated once the storm blows over.
Let's just thank God that Rush Limbaugh didn't say what Parker said and let it go.
Of course, as much as we'd like to, we can't leave out the odious Piers Morgan. In an "interview" with Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America after the horrific shootings of 26 people, mostly young children in Newtown, Conn., Morgan called Mr. Pratt an "unbelievably stupid" man. Between repeated, annoying interruptions, he called Mr. Pratt "dangerous," and said that he didn't "actually care" about the deaths of those children.
Curious. Mr. Morgan seems to have no problem with the deaths of millions of the unborn. It says here that, until his "concern" for children extends to all of them, including the unborn, Mr. Morgan ought to shut his holier-than-thou yap.
Which brings us to the Pulitzer Prize-nominated Donald Kaul. Mr. Kaul suggests the repeal of the 2nd Amendment and the branding of the National Rifle Association (NRA) as a terrorist organization. Nothing new there. The LSDs have advocated those positions for years.
Mr. Kaul, however, would go much farther than that. He would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, "our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control. And if that didn't work, I'd adopt radical measures." He goes on to say that what's "missing" from the debate is "anger." Hmmm. Not any more.
How many Americans are gun owners, including yours truly? A conservative estimate would be about 40 million? So, Mr. Kaul is advocating a blood-bath which would dwarf any in history only to soothe his anger? Where, pray tell, is his anger at the shooter? For that matter, where is the anger of any of the LSDs toward him?
Answer: it doesn't exist. The deaths of those children were the gun's fault, and the fault of anyone and everyone who backs the liberty of every law-abiding American to own a firearm. For the LSDs, the deaths of those children represent but another opportunity to heighten their control over us. Nothing more.
What odds could a betting man get that, had the cowardly little creep who murdered those children not committed suicide before he could be arrested, Mr. Kaul would be among the first shedding crocodile tears in opposition to the death penalty?
The LSDs are the same people who think of Conservative Republicans as the enemy. For them, the enemy isn't Iran, or North Korea, or Russia, or the Muslim Brotherhood, or even al-Qaeda. On the contrary, they are "friends that we haven't made yet."
These are the same naive folks who would condemn 40 million of their fellow Americans, their neighbors, people who they know, to criminal status because they own guns, yet refuse to close the borders to illegal aliens, strangers who are only "looking for work." They condemn the genocide of Adolph Hitler from one side of their mouths and lionize that of Josef Stalin, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, and Mao Tse Tung out of the other.
LSD illogic never ceases to amaze. The U.S. Constitution means nothing to them. Religion is only something that should be separate from the state. They can't say "Merry Christmas" but "Happy Kwanzaa" is perfectly ok. If only the Republicans had the intestinal fortitude to call them on their nonsense...
Unhappily for many Americans, they simply don't.
