Hypocrisy, the Liberal God
Within the whirlwind of controversy following the shootings in Tucson last Saturday, we have seen a very determined attempt by the Left and their in-house propaganda machine, otherwise known as the mainstream media, to attach blame to the conservative right in general, and talk radio, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh, among others, in particular.
I had a piece posted here the other day about the Pennsylvania congressman who was caught in an interview urging that a Republican in Florida should be shot. No innuendo, no allusions, no metaphors, no symbolic language, none. This pillar of the Democrat party flat out advocated the shooting of a legitimately elected Republican, the new governor of Florida. His language is not subject to interpretation, only condemnation.
But guess who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times posing as a conciliator in this current hubbub? Yeah, you guessed right, Bubba, good ol' Congressman Kanjorski, inciter to political assassination. Every time I think I have witnessed liberal hypocrisy at its apex, they do something that is even more jaw-dropping and mind-boggling that proves to me that Liberals have a members' only access to hypocrisy that is denied to the rest of us. If there are indeed multiple, pagan gods, there must be one, named Hypocrisy, and he must be one who can only be invoked by liberals. Whether they own him or he owns them is questionable but the result is the same: the rest of us are forever doomed to witness increasingly astonishing acts of breathtaking hypocrisy that are available to liberals only.
For every niggling example of conservative excitement to violence through political rhetoric there are multiple liberal transgressions where the vitriol and exhortations to violence are simply unmistakable or open to any mitigating interpretation. They don't tiptoe around the issue; they come right out and advocate murder and mayhem. Lest any liberal challenge me here, which I welcome and will gladly substantiate with example after example, I rest my case on this:
Death of a President is a 2006 British mockumentary about the assassination of Bush, the 43rd U.S. President on 19 October 2007 in Chicago, Illinois. By means of actors, archival film footage and computer-generated special effects, the assassination is the thematic beginning of serious discussions about civil disobedience, racial profiling, the U.S. Government's reduction of civil liberties news sensationalism, as agitational propaganda and the theory of Just War.
Ask yourself, what kind of frenzy would the Left and their tamed media ankle-biters be in should any producer have the temerity to create a fictional video representation of the assassination of Barack Obama? You got it, Bubba; the same people who are screaming now about conservative incitements to violence would be frothing at the mouth with outrage. Assassinate a Republican president? Ho hum, the reviews are mixed but it should provide an entertaining evening, don't you think, dear? Replace the targeted president with a Democrat and every person in this country to the right of Paul Krugman is a knuckle-dragging, Neanderthal bent on primitive violence to achieve fascist political ends.
We can't win this argument with liberals. Their God, Hypocrisy, responds only to their prayers.
