Given the chance to do what is right, liberals will consistently choose otherwise.
They do so because they adopt a worldview that is based on "what feels good." They follow impulses instead of moral standards. And they seem to cheer for our enemies instead of our allies. Which when you think of it seems to be a defining characteristic of someone who has lost their mind.
This week was replete with perfect examples:
Rosie O'Donnell decided this week to throw the rest of her considerable heft (rhetorically speaking) behind the mullahs, and the crazy man in Iran. In a clip that will live in internet infamy she actually objects to calling terrorists "evil". She took the side of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards over GPS. She then launched into conspiracy theory that the United States planned an organized destruction of World Trade 7. A theory that has already long been debunked - not by politicians - but by Popular Mechanics. On the upside - if we can merely convince her "family" (composed of people entirely unrelated to her) to vote her off, she may leave “The View” in May 2007.
Al Gore dared to assault the intelligence of humanity by comparing the struggle for Civil Rights in the 1960's (which his own father sought to stall) to his own pet project - global warming. Gore's rhetoric that mankind is in control of the warming trend that is affecting seven planets in our solar system is laughable. But peddling his half-hatched theories to the genuine pain of people who endured ill-treatment only because of skin color defies seriousness.
John Travolta, not to be outdone, felt free to lecture movie goers at the British premiere of his new movie, about the perils of global warming as well. Shortly thereafter it was discovered that as he was busy adding up some 30,000 flight miles in the past year, on his personal fleet of five airplanes, his personal carbon emissions rate stood at 800 tons; more than 100 times the average person.
Congressional Liberals felt perfectly comfy spending nearly 48 billion of your tax dollars on pork, peanuts, and spinach over the past two weeks, but couldn't find time to fund our soldiers before spring break. They also seem to have no opinion whatsoever about the fact that our allies are facing a serious crisis in our shared struggle against terror. And for a bonus they then turned around and increased the taxes you pay by $400,000,000,000.
Diane Feinstein had an even tougher week because it was revealed that she and her husband were making serious dough off the war, and with her being on the Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee and all...
Hillary Clinton had to resort to asking a philanderer to hit her campaign trail early, far in advance of when she had originally intended. Why? So that, in true keeping with her liberal mentality, she could stick the dagger in the heart of Barack Obama. The unintended result however may be coming back to haunt her in the not to distant future. Turns out even some liberals don’t like enduring Clinton’s best fund-raising technique. You and I commonly refer to it as a shakedown.
CNN and James Carville both thought they had pulled one over on viewers, but in doing so demonstrated that they could stab a fellow liberal in the back as easily as Hillary herself. Both CNN and Carville also know and understand the importance of proper disclosure - and chose to not do so. Carville pretended to be giving an unbiased view of the Democratic primary race (even though he is on Hillary’s payroll,) and CNN pretended not to notice.
Nancy Pelosi, following in the steps of John Kerry, Chris Dodd, and Howard Dean, is planning on going to Syria to consult with the enemy. Syria of course has been providing upwards of 80% of the suicide bombers that have killed innocent American G.I.s and Iraqi citizens in Iraq.
A vile, liberal assault on Christians was only narrowly avoided this week, when people of strong faith objected to the use of Holy Week as a time to mock Jesus Christ.
Omar Mohammadi, an ACLU attorney, decided to take up the case of the six flying Imams, and to file a lawsuit against the passengers on the airplane who the Imams originally scared in the first place.
Liberals in New York City are crying out that Ronell Wilson - who was convicted of killing two NYPD police officers this week - not receive the death penalty. Wilson was the first person to be sentenced to death in New York in fifty years. Wilson was convicted of killing the officers "execution style."
The liberal mainstream media chose to willfully misrepresent the comments of Dr. James Dobson as it pertained to Fred Thompson running for President.
And socially liberal Rudy Giuliani was for his wife being part of presidential cabinet meetings, before he was against it.
For sake of time I did not complete an exhaustive list from this past week, only the sampling listed above. But one thing becomes clear as you click from story to story, liberal thinking, philosophy, and policies will destroy our nation.
The heart stopping thing about 2007 is how boldly the immoral leftists will make these naked power grabs.
From the taking of our money that we work hard to earn and use to provide for our loved ones - to the direct communication, sympathy, and willingness to give the benefit of the doubt to those who wish to kill us - liberals are attempting to construct a society that few of us should wish to live in. Should they be left to their own devices they will rig the system to their own benefit and only the voices of "We the People" are able to stop them.
Liberals are almost always wrong, on nearly everything, and to not recognize it accelerates our own, painful, and dramatic destruction.
