Muckrakers have been digging up some dirt on Sarah Palin lately, and my reaction is “big frigging deal.” I cannot begin to tell you how sick and tired I am of the double-standard hypocrisy of liberals. Link Link
If a liberal woman had done what Palin is purported to have done, then the MSM would laud her, throw petals in her path, and praise her as a righteous feminist breaking new ground, forging new paths, opening new vistas — a liberated iconoclast breaking free of patriarchal stereotypes.
But let a conservative — man or woman — step outside the box liberals have put us in, and oh the horror of it all! How dare we step outside the corner they have painted us into? “If you are a patriot; a conservative, then this is how you must look, and act, and think” they tell us. “This way and no other.”
Governor Palin may, or may not have committed the peccadilloes she is accused of, but that is beside my point. My point is that “we the people” need to realize that the media have, as a rule, consistently painted liberals in a favorable light, and conservatives in a negative manner – they have “boxed us.” Yet it is not the Right that is reactionary, inflexible, and boorish — it is the Left. Screw their box.
It is the Left that insists on cookie-cutter uniformity, via their beloved social engineering ploys; it is the Left that practices thuggery and brutality a la James Hoffa and the SEIU; it is the Left that practices an atheistic devolution to barbarism and loss of civility, morality, and decency. It is the Left that demeans and warps the human spirit so that it loses hope, inspiration, and divinity. It is the Left that betrays American values, traditions, and America itself. Link Link Link Link Link
It is the Left that contracts our possibilities until we no longer believe in ourselves, or expand our reach into space (NASA’s new slogan under the Democrats is “There’s No Place Like Home”). (And don’t talk to me about JFK and the moon — today’s Democratic Party has little if anything to do with the party of JFK. It has been distorted beyond redemption).
These ad hominem attacks masquerading as “investigative reporting” hold little, if any, interest for me. It is the standard liberal MO — when all else fails, attack the person.
Can’t find fault with their political record? Can’t refute their arguments? Can’t intimidate, buy, or bully them? No problem, just muckrake up something — make it up if needs be — and smear them with it (Dan Rather’s “investigative reporting” on Bush’s National Guard service springs to mind). Link
As far as I am concerned, until the liberal media start properly vetting Obama, they can just shut up. They have thrown away — with both hands — any street cred they once had, and they are so obviously nothing but lap-dogs for the Obama Administration, that I find any attempt by them to look like honorable investigative journalists laughable.
They can document all of Palin’s emails, find Perry’s dental records, unearth Ron Paul’s medical school grades, but they cannot find out why Obama’s Social Security number was issued in Connecticut — nor do they care. They are nothing but ideological propagandists who have zero interest in balanced reporting of the truth. They are only interested in pushing their ideological agenda, and I have no interest in their biased BS anymore.
The Old Media is quickly being replaced by the New Media. Stared by blogs such as the “Drudge Report,” and augmented by the rise of citizen/journalists, the New Media has increasingly become the place where “we the people” go to find out the truth. There are still any number of bumps, potholes, and dead-ends on the road, but the path is daily becoming clearer and smoother. The recent introduction of GBTV bodes well for the future (no doubt PJTV has some mixed feelings about this recent development). Link Link Link
In any event, without the New Media, it is unlikely “we the people” would know anything about the recent filing of a brief in Seattle last week by a trans-national group of blacks. As relatively few people are still aware of it, let me briefly describe this legal action. LinkThe plaintiffs, who refer to the defendant (the Democratic Party) as the “Father of Racism,” allege that the Democratic Party has refused to admit the role they played in promoting slavery, and Jim Crow laws, and other racist practices from 1792 to 2011. They simply want the Democratic Party to acknowledge their long history of racism — and apologize for it.
It was, after all, liberal Democratic icon Woodrow Wilson who revitalized and promoted the Ku Klux Klan. It was the Democrats who vehemently opposed every legal action designed to give blacks their constitutional rights; including Plessy v Ferguson, and Brown v. the Board of Education. In fact, right up until their cynical “flip” in the early 1960s, the Democrats were unrepentantly racist – fighting Republicans tooth and nail to keep the black community down. Link
Since the 1960s their racism has been much more subtle and devious. Nonetheless, their machinations have been devastating for the black community. Yet despite the destruction of their two parent families, the deplorable mis-education offered to their children, and an unemployment rate much higher than the nation’s norm, most blacks remain loyal to Obama and the Democratic Party. They have been thoroughly indoctrinated for generations, and are terrified to leave the Democrat’s Plantation. Link LinkThe Democrat’s Plantation comes complete with black overseers, who generally have a “reverend,” or some other honorific before their name. Leave the Plantation, and they will sic the dogs on you, to track you down and bring you back. The overseers are aided and abetted by the “crab mentality” phenomena — “If I can’t have it neither can you;” as graphically demonstrated by crabs, who pull back down any of their brethren who try to escape from a bucket full of live crabs. Link Link
Blacks who try to escape the Plantation are told (in no uncertain terms) to stay on the Plantation, and the government — “Massa” — will take care of them. They are told to stay on the Plantation, or else…. The entitlement mentality is nothing but a gussied up slave mentality. “Massa takes good care of us. We be fools to leave the Plantation and fend for ourselves.” Link
As an aside: How has the leftwing palmed their KKK onto the rightwing? The same way they palmed their Socialist Workers Party, the NAZIs, onto the rightwing — by using lies, obfuscation, misdirection, and incessant media propaganda. Well they can take both their KKK, and their NAZIs, and shove them where the sun does not shine. They belong to the Left — always have, and always will. Take them liberals — <I>own</I> them — they are YOURS! Link
In closing let me discuss briefly the Navy Jack flag. Both the Navy Jack and the Gadsden flag stem from the time of the Revolutionary War, both have rattle snakes on them, and both feature the words “Don’t Tread On Me.” There are two very noticeable differences though: the snake on the Gadsden flag is coiled, while the snake on the Navy Jack is elongated; also, the field on the Gadsden is bright yellow, while the Navy Jack field is comprised of 13 alternating red and white stripes.
The most important difference, however, and the reason why I bring this up, is the Navy Jack is an officially recognized US flag — still flown on US Navy ships to this day (the Gadsden flag is not).
I mention this because I have noticed folks sometimes get into legal difficulties flying the Gadsden flag — the purported reason being that it is not an official US flag. With the Navy Jack you can proclaim the same “Don’t Tread On Me” message, and also have a legal leg to stand on, should anyone question its authenticity or validity.
If the ACLU comes to town, I’m not saying you’ll win any legal battles by using the Navy Jack, but you will be on firmer legal ground than with the Gadsden flag. (By the way, I love the Gadsden, so please, no emails in that regard. I’m just handing out a friendly hint to any who might find it helpful). Link Link Link
P.S. For those of you who may be wondering — yes, I have turned myself in to AttackWatch.com. It is the least I can do for my country. I took my cue from Sam Sewell of “The Steady Drip,” who saw his duty and did not flinch from it. He turned himself in to AttackWatch.com because of his strong opposition to the Obama Administration. I salute your trail-blazing patriotism Sam! Link Link
