Liberals are famous for shaming conservatives for their past associations with questionable characters, while they exempt themselves from the same standards. What a shocker!
For thee, not for me.
Every other week, a liberal Twitter troll cites a Republican politician’s innocent appearance at some long-forgotten political event with the likes of a Ku Klux Klan member, hoping to besmirch his reputation. Better yet, sometimes one of them will post a black-and-white photo of such an appearance, as if it’s a smoking gun that will end the hapless Republican’s career.
It shouldn’t surprise you that liberals had no problem with Sen. Robert Byrd’s despicable association with the KKK. A typical liberal defender would say: “Oh, my gosh! This man was a pillar of progressivism. He cared deeply for people. He was the conscience of the Senate.”
How about Sen. Ted Kennedy? Liberals couldn’t have cared less that any other person would have been charged with manslaughter for his role in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick. Their attitude was: “Why, he is the ‘Lion of the Senate.’ No one cares more about the poor than he does.”
President Bill Clinton? As the most powerful man on the planet, he sexually harassed a young female intern in the White House, directly lied about it to the American people and committed felony perjury, for starters. Yet liberals still regard him as a man of unsurpassed class and virtue.
The Rev. Al Sharpton? The examples are endless.
Why do you suppose that is?
The reason is that for liberals, the acid test for one’s moral character is his ideology. Does the person support progressive causes? If so, it doesn’t much matter what he did in the past.
Present or future, for that matter.
That’s not the case for Republicans. Even an accidental brush with a bad person or cause is fair game because conservatives, on balance, can’t be good people — even those with an unblemished record of selfless service.
I’m still waiting for the “he slapped his baby sister from his high chair, a woman, so he obviously has hated women since then” because it fits the mode of the Liberal attack and the Liberal media.
Romney’s “47%” was a national scourge. But “attacks” on Hillary for the emails & Benghazi are “just politics”.
The Planned Parenthood tapes are “edited” and “an attack of women” so they are “just politics”.
Remember the George Bush AWOL letter that was proven to be a fake “but what was written on it was true” back in 2004 by none other than Dan Rather. He was interviewed in 2013 still asserting he was correct “none has proven it was a fake” in his mind.
Liberals, as I have said many times, in their own heads have no capacity for being wrong about anything, ever.
That’s the narcissist faith they have in their absolute superiority and their inability to admit when they are clearly wrong.
Their ideology is perfect. All you have to do is believe it, or else. And if it doesn’t work, it’s someone elses fault because they are perfect.
Take Ken Starr, who served as independent counsel to investigate the Clintons. He was as pure as Snow White. But you don’t mess with Bill. Despite his stellar professional and personal record, the Clinton war room and the liberal media savaged him as a devious pervert.
Today we are witnessing another glaring example of this double standard. Planned Parenthood has been all over the news with the release of a series of horrifying videos showing it harvested and sold the organs of aborted babies.
Every decent American would condemn Planned Parenthood for this practice, right? Wrong. According to many progressives, conservative filmmakers selectively edited the videos to defame this noble organization, which provides “essential services for women.”
And now it’s a “war on women” you misogynist pigs if you bring it up. The Left’s favorite phrase for anything that involves women and their ideology being questioned.
And there are plenty of Liberals out there who will defend “the woman’s right to choose” to the death (and harvesting of organs and body parts) of any woman or child.
It’s a matter of Ideology. The truth doesn’t matter.
The Ideology is strong. The Ideology is right. The Ideology is Moral. The Ideology is Sacrosanct. The Ideology shall not be questioned.
Especially, not by you grubby, illiterate, baseless, evil morons who oppose them politically.
To oppose them is to be the Anti-Christ, even though many of them hate Christians too anyways.
They are Holy, you are not.
Liberals protect progressive organizations, but none more than those that perform abortions, for abortion is the foremost sacrament of the religion of liberalism. Liberals will protect Planned Parenthood at all costs because it is darn near a holy shrine.
Planned Parenthood’s sacred stature is also seen in the recent brouhaha over the Smithsonian Institution’s display of a sculpture of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, in its “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.
A group of black pastors from nine states demanded the removal of the statue because of Sanger’s ties to the eugenics movement. “Sanger may have been a lot of things,” the pastors wrote in a letter to the Smithsonian, “but a ‘champion of justice’ she definitely was not. Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies; an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers. Also, the notorious ‘Negro Project,’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild. Despite these well-documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice. The obvious incongruity is staggering!”
The Democrats overwhelmingly supported Slavery and then Racial Discrimination from the founding of the country until AFTER the passage of The Civil Right Acts they opposed in the mid-Sixities but try to educate them on that and you’ll get a supernova of hate-filled fire & brimstone expelled at inhuman speed in your direction.
HOW DARE YOU!
The past is an “inconvenient truth” for Democrats and Liberals. Their own is inconventient to their holiness and inconvenient for their opponents because they will make the smallest, most innocuous (or even fabricated) mole mill into a mountain taller than Everest.
It’s what they do.
Martin Luther King, one of the great pillars of The Civil Rights Movement itself is now the target of Liberal ire because if you use his speeches and quotes against their race baiting you are “mind raping” black people, especially if you’re an evil cracker! (white). You just want to shut them up and shut them down if you talk about “I Have a Dream”.
The Smithsonian callously denied the request, saying that the bust serves its goal to “see the past clearly and objectively” and that though some of Sanger’s beliefs “are now controversial,” her inclusion represents the “full spectrum of the American experience.”
See, an “inconvenient truth”. 🙂
Translation: Liberals value abortion more than they do African-Americans. There is no way anyone can say “objectively” that Sanger was a champion of justice for African-Americans or that her horrific views were merely “controversial.”
More Blacks are aborted in New York City alone than are born there. An inconvenient truth.
In 2012, black women in New York City aborted over 6,500 more children than they gave birth to. Data from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene shows that, among non-hispanic black women, there were 31,328 “induced terminations” to 24,758 live births.
In total, there were almost 74,000 abortions in New York in 2012, meaning that 42.4 percent of all abortions were of black children. Hispanic children accounted for 31 percent of those aborted in the city at a total of nearly 23,000. Altogether, black and Hispanic abortions were 73 percent of the total of 73,815 abortions in New York in 2012. (NRO)
Point this out to a liberal and you’ll get a spew of hatred about “political” and “anti-choice” and hating freedom and probably end up being called a racist and a hater of women in one long vitriolic spew.
This is stunning when you consider the lengths liberals go to pander for the black vote. They must figure that the objections are mostly coming from black pastors whose theology is light-years from that of such progressive blacks as Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
And I still wonder what the Jews will do when Israel is nuked by Iran. Jews are overwhelmingly Democrats, even though the Democrat policies and elites are clearly anti-Semites.
But the Ideology is what matters, not the truth. The ultimate in Orwellian conditioning.
2+2=5 because the Party Ideology says so.
It would be interesting to see how the Smithsonian would react if Sharpton and Jackson joined these pastors.
So while liberals are trying to purge America of symbols of its history of slavery, they are protecting the patron saint of abortion, whose attitude toward blacks was more despicable than that of a slaveholder. She believed that reducing the black population, even if it meant killing the unborn, would purify the human race.
If enough attention were called to these types of things and a sufficient number of blacks began to realize that liberals have been using them for their votes, we might see a sea change in American politics.
But the Liberal Media is is in full “bury it”, “discredit it” mode.
For now, we must just marvel at liberals’ cynicism, double standards and hypocrisy. But one of these days, their conflicting “values” are going to come home to roost. (David Limbaugh)
One can only hope. But their narcissism and sanctimony is what keeps them warm in this cold, cold, racist world full of “haters”. 🙂
