John Kerry hasn't tucked tail and run this fast since his third "purple heart" in Vietnam. Then he wanted to get out of the free fire of the Viet Cong, now he wants out of the free fire of truth and analysis. Nonetheless the world should take note of John Kerry, because this week he has given us all an indisputable truth.
Liberals must lie, deceive, distort, and for lack of better terms - shuck and jive, all the time when it comes to their actual beliefs. They must do so constantly to attempt to trick mainstream Americans as to what they actually believe. They are forced to do this because on occasion, when they forget to hide it, what we see is so dastardly and ugly that we shrink in horror at the reality of their true convictions. (Or the lack thereof...)
It's a scary truth, frightening actually, but indisputable nonetheless.
When John Kerry impugned the intelligence of our forward serving men and women in uniform (most of whom had far better grades than his "D's" at Yale), he spoke from the heart, and he's been doing it for 35 years. And as scripture reminds us, "out of the abundance of the heart, the lips speak."
His presentation with Los Angeles students and his series of non-apologies since revealed plainly for all to see that he only "regretted that his words were misinterpreted."
By who? The stupid men and women in uniform who were offended by the original comments to begin with?
But much of the discussion in this dust-up has overlooked the larger issue exposed by the situation. Kerry has to run around and pretend to support the troops, even though he has dozens of statements on record denigrating them for over a generation. Starting with the throwing overboard of his fellow Vietnam era servicemen, voting against funding our troops in harms way, and in 2005 calling them terrorists in their treatment of women and children, Kerry had a long line of provable contempt for our military before his rather honest admission last week of his belief that they were less than intelligent.
When you examine the election of 2006 though, you see that this trend is nationwide and being practiced everywhere.
In many races for House and Senate seats, the liberals have attempted to hand pick candidates that have a more conservative tone to their message or life story. They have used churches as backdrops.
In the two Senate races featuring legacy candidates, Harold Ford Jr., and Bob Casey Jr. the liberals have claimed a position of being "pro-life," while secretly telling supporters that "they would not legislate" their convictions if sent to Washington.
Does this tactic sound familiar? It should.
John Kerry, when confronted by a pro-life voter in the state of Missouri in the 2004, claimed the same position.
So is this what Harold Ford Jr. and Tom Casey Jr. mean when they go to Washington? They will claim to have personal belief in pro-life principals but will vote for funding of tax-payer funded Planned Parenthood clinics to racially "cleanse" our nation's inner cities? If so doesn't that make them as racist and thirsty for the blood of children as Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and the rest of the champions of abortion in the U.S. Senate?
While the liberal left, and their bed pals in the mainstream media seek to highlight the "low approval ratings" of prominent conservative politicians, in particular the President, you don't see him hiding from the campaign trail, and dodging the chance to go on the road to make his case to a voter who may not yet be decided. Yet the "fake-conservatives" that liberals are propping up in races in Virginia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere are not begging for Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and now John Kerry for that matter to come work their campaign events.
Liberals come by this "say one thing" and "do another" mentality honestly. Liberals don't believe in such things as absolutes, standards, or even objective truth. Everything to them is a shade of gray. So lying isn't lying when it’s done by a liberal. When Jim Webb authors an incestuous, homosexual, picture of pedophilia in his book no one is to raise an eye-brow, while Rick Santorum is supposedly the devil because he thinks that a family should be made up of a father and a mother.
You can't trust a liberal position, even if you're a liberal negotiating with another one because you never know if the goal posts are going to move. There are no rights and wrongs. And John Kerry is supposed to be believed simply because he says that what he said wasn't what he said. And if you're so stupid that you were offended by what he really said, then he "sincerely regrets" that you misinterpreted it.
John Kerry should be believed - not for the substance of what he says mind you - but because of what it reveals about him personally that he would pull the curtain back and let us all see what he really thought.
Liberals always have to dance around the truth, because nobody will vote for them based on what they truly believe. And every now and then when we get a peek at what their beliefs, we are reminded why we can never let them be in charge again!
