Liberals Circle the Wagons Again in a Blinding Display of Racial Doublestandard

With the internet and Hollywood abuzz with how racist Republicans are, you might expect the latest story to bring these high-handed liberals to feed one of their own to the wolves to save their image.  Well, I guess that’s because you have a common sense, and a sense of honor that most liberals just say they have.  No one ‘talks the talk’ more than liberals, or fails to ‘walk the walk’ like they do.

The AP reported late in the week on apologies from Democratic leader Harry Reid to the President, for words spoken during the 2008 campaign.  Reid said that Obama could win because the was ‘light-skinned’ and ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one’.  Of course as soon as the AP got a hold of the book that had these quotes, Reid came out and apologized, which begs the question; would he have said anything if those quotes had gone forgotten forever?  Isn’t it the sign of a true penitent if they apologize before the offended even know there is anything to apologize for?

Of course, contrary to what they would have done of it had been a Republican that said it, the Democrats circled the wagons, throwing their support behind the Democratic leader.  Even the congressional black caucus got behind it.  The President accepted the apology, sure as expected, that’s what a president does.  He leaves the punishment up to the people whose responsibility it is to punish.  Where is the censure?  Where are the hearings?  We had to listen to a whole week of rhetoric because a congressman called the President a liar, but nothing here?  Where is Nancy Pelosi to cry about the ‘dangerous rhetoric’?  Where is ‘uber left’ activist Janeane Garofalo who said about the tea-parties:

“a bunch of teabagging rednecks,” adding “this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.”

Is it only racism if you don’t agree with the person who made the statement?  The last head of the RNC was forced out, by his own party under pressure from Democrats, because he hearkened back to segregation in a speech.  Don’t get me wrong, as far as I am concerned, racism is racism, no matter where it comes from.  I will be just as disgusted next week when it comes out that a Republican said something racist and the Democrats crucify him for it.  I think just about every politician is a scumbag and a liar, but when I see non-politicians like Gerofalo, taking a stand on something, and act like they are better than everyone else because they have something to stand for, it disgusts me when they show their double standard so blatantly.

Hypocrisy and Double Standards, New American Politics

The past couple of weeks have been a dark, blighted example of the kinds of double standards that have become ‘standard’ within the American political system.  Whether it’s watching the main stream media attempt to stay on top of actual news, without alienating their liberal base, or listening to guests on NPR make points and counterpoints that run contrary to one another, it has become clear that our politicians and those who support them, are completely disingenuous and downright disreputable.

Take, for example, something as simple as golf.  According to a CBS reporter President Obama has been to the golf course 25 times between January and November.  It took George W. Bush two years and ten months to get to the links that many times.  Now, where are all the Democrats that criticized the former president’s trips to the green?  Why are the Republicans, that supported Bush, now criticizing President Obama?  It goes to show that neither party is above a childish display finger pointing for image.

Another great example was on NPR last Wednesday.  The topic was the recent decision by the Catholic Diocese of Washington D.C. to refuse to support the health care bill without a strict ban on abortion funding, and a side issue in which the Diocese would lose funding for social services if they do not comply with same sex marriage legislation in the district.  The guest spent several minutes condemning the church for not supporting the health care bill and funding for abortion with the cry, “What about the poor people, doesn’t the Catholic Church care about poor people getting abortions if they need them?”  She then went on to discuss the loss of funding, condemning the Church again, but failing to realize that her earlier argument in favor of the poor people should now be turned on the government, who would pull funding for poor people.

In the most glaring example of double standards Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton feel quite safe making racist jokes about Eastern Indians all while the left continues to point the racist finger at the right.  Biden’s joke was captured by C-Span as he spoke to an Indian American, the punchline being “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”  Hillary Clinton’s joke about Gandhi running a gas station also promoted a racial stereotype and was insensitive to people who revere the famed activist.  Whether you are tired of political correctness or not, hypocrisy in our government officials is something that should not be tolerated.

Accusations of Racism Losing Their Punch

Racism is a touchy subject, it is a term that shouldn’t be used lightly, and a tag that shouldn’t be laid on people without overwhelming evidence.  I lived in the south for a few years, and where I live now isn’t much better.  One thing I have noticed though, is that racists really aren’t ashamed to come out and say it.  When there are acts of true racism, they are quite evident by the words of the perpetrator.  It has now become the tactic of the left, when losing an argument just brand the opposition as racist.  Let’s take three or four signs in a protest of hundreds of thousands, and brand the whole group racist.  Better yet, let’s take things that are marginally offensive, but don’t refer to race at all, and call it racist.  It is the equivalent of children on the playground having an argument that degenerates into “No, you are!, No, you are!”.

Not only is this practice, that is becoming more and more prevalent, reprehensible.  It demeans real claims of racism.  It will lead to society wondering, “was that act really race related, or is it another case of answering hate with hate?”  Like the boy who cried wolf, eventually people will stop listening, and when something bad really happens no one will pay attention.  Don’t get me wrong, there are real racists out there, and yes some of them are conservatives or Republicans, but there are also really liberal racists out there, and racists in the Democratic party.  Racism is still a problem in this country, but not nearly to the extent that people in the media, and some very hateful left wing groups would have you believe.  I could go on and on listing real examples of racism and attaching them to the political movements they are a part of, but that would do nothing to fix the problem.

The Media would have you believe that the 9/12 marchers in Washington were all racist because their issues don’t make any sense, or that their only doing it now because the President is black.  I am here to tell you, as a member of the 9/12 project, the media is lying to you.  We have known for a long time that politicians, Republican and Democrat, have been selling us up the river.  They have been selling out to special interests and lobbyists for a very long time.  Our ire is directed at the entire government, black, white, democrat, republican and independent.  We believe they are all corrupt, either from direct actions or from the complicity of silence.  Many of us have specific views on how things can change, that is because the 9/12 group is bipartisan.  The vast majority of us want less government control, less spending, fair taxes for all, and a return to the principles in the Constitution.  It is not a document that is ‘fundamentally flawed’, or a ‘living document to be interpreted within our own times’.  The Constitution is a framework of very specific, timeless principles.  It has been amended when needed and never lightly.

Many ask why now?  Why not during the last presidency, or the one before that?  I have an answer for those people…

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The first colonists dealt with a corrupt government for over 150 years before they stood up.  Many believe that our government’s downward spiral began about 60 years ago, I think we are doing pretty good if it only took us this long.  The founding fathers knew the facts of human nature, and so does our government.  They expected us to just sit idly by and take all of this.  Why do you think they introduce socialist legislation in such small amounts over long periods of time?  Yes, some of these programs have been good, and have helped a lot of people, but how many more can we take before we are no longer a capitalist democracy, but a socialist oligarchy?  The problem with socialist programs is that once instilled into our way of life they are almost impossible to remove.  When people grow up with their hands out, it is hard to tell them no, and impossible to slap their hands away.  Well it’s time for us to close our hands, and to look to ourselves to provide.  A society that becomes dependant on the state can depend on a state that will take advantage of that.
