It’s been rumored that if liberals didn’t have double standards they would have no standards at all. This is particularly true for the radical and progressive wings of the Democrat party that practice Alinsky’s RULES FOR RADICALS. To quote from their playbook: “In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.” Principles are non-existent, everyone and everything is expendable, facts are the enemy, and truth is irrelevant. Let’s not forget that our current President taught Alinsky tactics as a community organizer.
Accordingly, it is impossible for rational people to believe that President Obama has any real concern about the national debt. After all, it is he and his economic policies that have irresponsibly added $4 trillion dollars to the total in less than three years! It comes directly from the Alinsky game plan for him to now parade and preen as a deficit hawk. It is pure propaganda. Obama and his press mouthpiece Harry Reid says they have proposed “debt reduction measures of $3 trillion or even $4 trillion.” Propaganda is too nice a word; it is pure poppycock. Their plan does not exist. Nobody’s seen it. It is no more substantial than the Prez’s budget plan which was rejected by a 97-0 Senate vote. That leaves them with Alinsky Rule 13 to fall back on: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. That’s why they have embarked on their scorched earth tactics of “Mediscare” and demagoguing Republicans. Since the Democrats have no idea how to save Medicare or Social Security and choose to ignore the fact that they are going broke, all they can do is try to vilify the opposition.
In their hatred for the successful and accomplished, all liberals do is repeat their class warfare and mantra of “tax the rich.” Tax increases and increased unemployment will both damage the economy but that is one good way to “redistribute the wealth” and build government dependency. That goes in tandem with their current practice of economic “strangulation by regulation.” It’s no wonder that 70% of small businesses say they will be unable to hire anyone new for the next year!
On a micro level, our local Palin Derangement Syndrome sufferer continues to flail wildly below the belt when it comes to all things Palin. After noting his parental angst with his nineteen year old daughter taking her first plane flight by herself, he viciously assaults another man’s twenty year old daughter for having written a book. Maybe she was just following the example of our President who wrote two memoirs before having accomplished anything of substance. In any event, he even got the price of Bristol Palin’s book wrong (it’s $15.11 at Barnes and Noble) and then advocates a boycott. Next he will be burning books along with the kook preacher in Florida. That’s how liberals practice freedom of speech.
Continuing his erroneous but polarizing path, he tries to mock and demean Bristol in every way imaginable. This is the print version of cyber bullying. One can only hope that no doppelganger loon out there decides to make his daughter the target of similar defamation and invective. There was a time when decency prevailed and children of political figures were off limits. One can also surmise that this sort of keyboard bravery would not be on display if Todd Palin was in close proximity.
The remainder of his oxymoronic PDS rant is against “Mama Bear” Palin. (For the record, it’s “Mama Grizzly.”) He’s upset that the press continues to scrutinize her every move and pleads for them to ignore her. They can’t! In reality, they are addicted to her and just can’t help themselves. Neither can he. They will continue to cover her, continue to misstate the truth, continue to make things up and continue to polarize. They are moths being drawn closer and closer to the flame with the same inevitable results. Poof!
