I love, love, love when I am insulted first thing in the morning. Makes me feel so alive, vibrant and retributive. Yeah, I do have a mean streak in me. It only comes out when I am affronted with hate and/or disrespect, and Frank Rich managed to do both in a recent NY Times column.
Forget what the column was about. Forget all the little particulars for the naysayer to latch upon and run with as sufficient for Rich’s damnation. Instead, what did Frank Rich actually say, and were his characterizations true? Let’s see here . . .
Mr Rich’s article was titled “The G.O.P. Stalinists Invade Upstate New York” published on October 31, goes on to call Conservatives and Republicans a “wacky, paranoid cult.”
Interesting in that Rich characterizes Conservatives and Republicans as ready to “eat their own” if anyone strays from the Party line. Gee, ya mean how Lieberman was drummed out of the Democrat Party? Like that, Mr. Rich? I have read numerous times how Lieberman was a traitor and should be tossed from the Donkey crowd for not towing the Party line. Hmmm . . . yet Conservatives and Republicans demanding their candidate reflect their values is “eating their own?”
I love manifest, clearly stated and totally undeniable hypocrisy. That’s Rich – you rock! You are clearly demonstrating WHY Democrats are in such danger.
Based on Rich’s words and the words of rank and file Lefties, such characterizations as Rich offered are really how Lefties feel about the majority of this nation – well, at least the 40% who in Gallup polls identify themselves as “Conservatives.” Wonder how that comports to the same Gallup poll that concludes “37% of Americans identify themselves as Independents, while 20% say they are Liberals?” Hmmmm . . .
The reader DID catch that, right? “40% Conservative, 37% Independent, 20% Liberal.” So the largest ideological identification in the nation are “Stalinist” and a “wacky, paranoid cult,” so says Mr. Rich, apparently with the agreement of lots of his pajama wearing, sitting in Mommie’s basement ether nuts? Do I care what these folks think?
Anyone Conservative or Republican who refuses to agree with Progressives is characterized as “obstructionist” and “radical right” members. Any activism by the Right is characterized by Rich as “radical-right hysteria,” and the 9-12 and Tax Day protesters are “teabaggers’ according to Rich and his pals.
Rich says Conservatives are engaging in “whiny cries of victimization,” and “self-martyrdom.”
Perhaps Mr. Rich shined best in his hit piece when he concluded “To the uninitiated, the tea party crowd comes across like the barflies in “Star Wars.”
Is it just me, or do others love it when we are characterized as “Stalinist? Teabaggers? Wacky, paranoid cult?” And love, love, love the”bar scene/Star Wars” reference? Add in Progressive politicians and their minions going on and on with “Republicans are obstructionist” because Progressives can’t cobble together a sufficient coalition of the idiot to push Obama’s health care nonsense, and the landscape unfolds in a most surreal manner before our very peepers.
These folks truly refuse to accept that feces stink. They refuse to see the writing on the wall that Progressive politics ARE NOT what this nation wants. The nation was snowed – well, the fools snowed. I was not one of those buried by the blizzard of idiocy that seemed to influence so many – dolts! The nation is digging out from beneath the accumulated mountain of horse-hockey under which they tried to bury us.
And when we shovel out, as we are now, where will the shoveled fecal matter be placed? Directly upon the heads of those who started this. The next year is going to be uber fun personified. Hang on y’all. Get some cotton candy, some corn dogs, a few fried Twinkies and Snickers bars, and grab a seat in the bleachers. If y’all thought last years little production was the “Greatest Show on Earth,” y’all ain’t seen nothing yet!
Methinks the backlash as manifest last night is a comin’ and none to slowly or quietly either. I am truly pleased at their arrogance and hate filled rhetoric at an entire nation who do not agree. Will they cry foul when we toss their butts back beneath the rock from which they slithered? You bet they will – it’s what they do!
So far, in the one year to the day since Mr. Obama was elected, we have seen and heard over and over just who Progressives are, and just what they think of the MAJORITY who do not agree!
