The Desperate, Lying Left

The Desperate, Lying Left

insanityFormer Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell calls Obamacare “manna from heaven” during a segment on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC crap-tacular. Sharpton himself invokes the recently-departed Nelson Mandela to legitimize the idea that President Obama is fighting “tougher opposition” than Mandela did. Race-baiter Michael Eric Dyson likewise invokes Mandela to legitimize raising the minimum wage as administration-coordinated communist agitators demand. Obama declares to his cabin boy-in-waiting Chris Matthews during an interview that Republicans are to blame for the problem with the Obamacare rollout – right after claiming that casting blame is not part of his “management style.” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman follows suit, absolving Obama of any responsibility for anything untoward that has occurred during his abysmal tenure as President.

You can’t make this stuff up. In the Obama-Matthews interview (if you could call it that), Matthews openly indicts Republicans for trying to “make it difficult for minority people to vote,” and Obama agrees, thereby adding fuel to the fires of racialism that he has so effectively stoked over the past five years.

I suppose we should be grateful, because this wanton, sloppy, shameless, outrageous, foray into Unicornland on the part of the left (whether Obama, the press, or their pants-pissing idiot followers) is indicative of their terror and desperation. They know that over the past few short weeks, millions of Americans suddenly got Obama’s number, and are now more critically examining all of the President’s words.

And they aren’t believing them.

They now know that Barack Obama is a serial liar, and many are beginning to see the bigger picture – that the entire political framework within which he operates is a lie. Worse yet, they are beginning to see that the common denominator is the American people taking it in the shorts.

This has led to the almost laughable excursion into the most blatant lies and fabrications to which Americans have ever been exposed. Like the maniac who peels off his clothes and dashes off into the night shrieking, his last shred of sanity having deserted him, the wild abandon of the calumnies, allegations, and outright fantasies being put forth are the signs of those who have nothing left to say, let alone anything that makes sense.

Only those possessing the dimmest, flickering intellect will fall for this stuff; they’ll be the ones deriding me for writing this, and you for agreeing.

Quite sad, really.

You can’t win a rigged game

gang-of-8

I had the opportunity very recently to have an extended conversation with a young gentleman who officially became a U.S. citizen just over a month ago. He claimed that he had always felt he “belonged here, ” took the first opportunity to come to the U.S. presented to him and “never looked back.” He worked all sorts of jobs, traveled all over the country and met people from every socioeconomic sector and demographic.

Coming from a country where the citizens have substantially less opportunity than in America and a more or less homogenous population, there were many things he still found strange about the U.S., even after having been here for more than 10 years. We talked about a multitude of subjects, from nationalized health care to race relations. He said that he often pondered certain inconsistencies, like why so many Americans harbor antipathy for their own country, why so many don’t vote and why young black celebrities are so angry being but a few. Like many naturalized immigrants I have encountered, his was more intense curiosity than judgment.

Describing his swearing-in ceremony, he could not have been prouder. The account of his thoughts and feelings as he and his fellow new citizens pledged allegiance to the flag and sang the National Anthem was nothing less than spiritual. “Something changed in my heart,” he said more than once. He related suddenly feeling part of something great and finally connected to all of the people who had gone before him to contribute to the success of this nation – and how America’s history of immigration played a big part in that.

Liberals killed Trayvon Martin, and Jamiel Shaw, and…

trayvon_jamiel1What we do know for sure about the night of February 26, 2012 is that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford, Florida, later claiming self-defense. Despite altogether too many having made up their minds about who was to blame within minutes of hearing of the incident, and the biased, tainted press reports, enough facts have subsequently shaken out that I believe a reliable determination can now be made as to why Martin died that night.

Other than the summary accusations and presumptions of racism on Zimmerman’s part, very little has come to light towards definitively affirming the mixed-race (Latino-Caucasian) neighborhood watch participant as a racist individual. Quite the opposite, in fact: Zimmerman’s actions and activities in the weeks and years prior suggest that he was anything but racially-biased.

Given the statutes governing those possessing concealed carry permits for firearms (as did Zimmerman), the names of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman would have been long forgotten by now were it not for the ensuing politicization surrounding the racial component here. Typically, these statutes do not demand that one waits to be physically overpowered before discharging their weapon.
