BARAK OBAMA HAS DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY ALONG MANY LINES

A meme from “Go Left” appeared on my Facebook news feed stating the following: “People yell that President Obama has divided America. But Obama didn’t divide our country, their unwarranted hatred of him did. Electing him was like turning on a light in a dark room and exposing the cockroaches.”

GoLeftMeme

There are differences of opinion on how we should govern ourselves because our founding fathers set up our nation that way. Because of the way this nation was set up, we have the right to voice our opinions without fear of government reprisal.

There’s not one issue with which I agree with Barak Obama, and I have the right to say that. Since Obama has been in office, he has “trashed” Republicans repeatedly. Plus in the first term of his presidency, he called upon folks to listen for any comments that disparaged his policies and agenda. This is in contrast to former President George W. Bush, who, many times indicated that Americans had the right to disagree with him. President Bush even met with parents, spouses, and other family members of those military personnel who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but were against the wars.

Barak Obama was elected to the presidency to be the president of all Americans, not just Democrats, not just blacks and other minorities. Instead of being the president of the United States, Barak Obama didn’t waste any time in interjecting himself into a local level dust-up in which he had no business becoming involved. This incident involved Professor Louis Gates, Jr., a black professor, who was returning to his Cambridge, Massachusetts home after a trip to China. Finding the door to his house jammed, he was trying to open it when he was arrested by police Sargent James Crowley. Sargent Crowley was responding to a 911 call in which the caller reported there were men breaking and entering Gates’ residence. Gates was never charged.

On July 22, 2009, six days after the incident, Barak Obama said the following: “I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that…the police acted stupidly…there is a history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” Subsequently a “beer summit” was held at the White House where Professor Gates and Officer Crowley were treated to beers with Obama.

Again, this was something in which the current president should have never involved himself. It was a low-level local matter. If the local NAACP wanted to get involved, that would probably be okay, but the incident was nothing close to the level where the leader of the free world should be putting his priorities, including protecting the people of this country, aside to become involved in a local dust-up.

The cases of Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were also local level incidents where the president had no business interjecting himself into, much less sending a representative to the funeral of Michael Brown, a thug who, before he was shot, robbed a convenience store and then while being apprehended, tried to take Police Officer Darren Wilson’s gun away. Subsequently, representatives of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which arose out of the Michael Brown shooting, was predicated on a lie, and currently advocates the killing of law enforcement officers and the destruction of property, were invited to the White House.

Not only has this president sought to divide this country along racial lines, he has sought to divide us along socio-economic lines. He has constantly harped that the rich don’t pay enough in taxes and has told low and middle income individuals that the rich are evil and anyone who is rich somehow became that through nefarious actions. He has further indicated that the rich, particularly the rich Republicans hate the poor and want them to suffer when, in reality, it is the other way around. Because no one ever got rich receiving entitlements such as food stamps and welfare from the government, we want as many folks as possible to be off these programs so they can prosper.

The president and his henchmen have also led lower and middle income individuals to believe that the Republicans don’t care about the environment by constantly preaching the doctrine of man-made climate change. This administration and its followers have also indicated that Republicans want dirty air, dirty water, and to throw Grandma off the cliff (a phrase often used by conservative commentator, Sean Hannity). In the liberals’ quest to gain as much control over our lives as they possibly can, they have demonized fossil fuels and fracking, an innovative way to safely and efficiently extract oil natural gas from beneath the earth’s surface. Fracking was developed by the private sector oil companies…the government had nothing to do with it, except for trying to shut the process down. Because of this innovation, energy prices have decreased, giving low income and middle income individuals some much needed relief.

Of course, the liberals would have you believe that they are champions of lower and middle class individuals and that the Republicans only champion the rich. Well, the “tolerant” left won’t even acknowledge that there is information available that refutes man-made climate change. They are so anxious to cram that theory down our throats and to preach to the American people that unless we immediately get off fossil fuels and go to green energy, we’re doomed. But as President Obama indicated, the price of energy will necessarily rise. The president wants energy costs to rise so we’ll use less of it. If this president and the liberals were really champions of the poor and the middle class, they would be anxious for any discovery out there which would delineate the climate change theory.

Thus, we’re just as divided along socio-economic lines as racial lines.

And let’s not forget religious lines. Even though this president claims to be a Christian, he never misses a change to disparage Christianity. However, when it comes to Islam, he constantly advises the American people to not judge the nation or religion of Islam based on the actions of a few. Of course, after Dylan Roof, the shooter of black church members in Charleston, was seen in a picture on social media with a Confederate battle flag, anyone who so much as owns a Confederate flag belt buckle was labeled a racist, a white supremacist, etc. The president has also referred to Christians and gun owners as “clinging to their guns and their Bibles.”

I don’t see how anyone in their right mind, could say that hatred for Barak Obama divided this country. It was Obama, his administration and liberals at all levels who have divided this country, not the unwarranted hatred of him as the “tolerant” left would have you believe.

FEELING GUILTY ABOUT BEING WHITE

As a political writer who must keep up with what’s current, I often read about such people, but I never thought I would have any contact with them.

Instead, I envisioned these folks as high academicians, giving lectures at institutes of higher learning and wandering through the halls and streets of places like UC Berkley, the University of Michigan, Brown University, Wellesley College, Radcliff, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. They taught graduate level classes in psychology, sociology, and philosophy. For the men, outfits consisting of jeans, t-shirts and old out of style jackets were in order, along with running shoes or Birkenstock sandals, weather permitting, dating back to when Birkenstocks were actually in style. If you’ve ever had a pair, you know they never wear out. For the women, it was much the same except for the jackets, they wore cardigan sweaters. The men would almost always have beards and disheveled hair. Most of the women would be thin with mousy hair. Of course no makeup was ever worn, and fingernails would be short and unpainted. The cars would almost always be older Toyotas or Nissans, containing only the bare necessities. Because fossil fuels were evil, gas mileage was of the utmost importance. Occasionally, one might splurge on a Prius. All of them longed for the day when the use of fossil fuels would be eliminated entirely. It goes without saying that these types fell far to the left in the political spectrum. Businesses, large and small were evil to these men and women.

They longed for the day when the governments ran everything. There would be health care for everyone, healthy food and clean water for everyone plus everyone would have a home or apartment. Political correctness would rule, making speech limited. Guns would be prohibited resulting in very low crime rates since those with criminal tendencies would not have access to guns. Terrorist threats would be eliminated due to universal love, the lack of guns, and climate change solutions that had been put in place by the United States and other countries of the world.

Until then they would be forced to exist in this world full of gun owners, capitalists, Christians, racists, misogynists, homophobes, and the worst of them all, Republicans, also referred to as conservatives.

Of all the sins of the world, racism was the most insidious, fostering white privilege, sometimes referred to as white supremacy. Every white person was born with the racist seed in them and would have to fight their racist tendencies all of their lives. Because of this, white people would be responsible for atoning for this evil seed though feelings of guilt and the inability to enjoy life because as a white person because you don’t deserve that pleasure. Furthermore, you must treat people of color much, much differently than you treat your white contemporaries in order to avoid hurting them further. Life had already dealt them a major blow because of their skin color and you must engage in all forms of political correctness when interacting with them.

After reading a few white liberal guilt articles, I was amused. This couldn’t be real. No one, except for the mentally ill could possibly be this way. Of course, these “tolerant” leftists hate people like me. They pontificate about all the hate that permeates the world and preach to all of us that eliminating the hate will solve the problems of terrorism, crime, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, and the worst of them all, racism. But they’re the ones who exude hate.

Much to my dismay, in the past month to six weeks, I have had the displeasure of communicating with two such folks through social media. So, these people do exist and are not that far removed from me.

Of course, you’re a racist if you don’t support Barak Obama’s policies. You can tell them until you’re blue in the face that it’s his policies you don’t agree with. You can further tell them that you have black friends, and patronize black-owned businesses, but it doesn’t matter to them. After 7-1/2 years of being called a racist because I didn’t support Obama’s policies and didn’t agree with him politically, I got fed up. No more Ms. Nice Girl! I put the ball back into their “oh so tolerant” court, telling them that unless they could point to anything I’ve said or written that denigrates this president due to his skin color, they best not hurl the racism accusation at me. Some liberals I’ve sent slithering back under their rock.

Earlier this week, I decided to get into a liberal thread where the “tolerant left” was ripping Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, to pieces for the alleged parts of her July 18 speech at the Republican National Convention, that were very similar to parts of Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democrat National Convention. The originator of the thread just couldn’t understand why no Republican friends of his had come forth with opinions on the alleged plagiarism. Of course, there were snide remarks about Republicans is the post. Remember, this person is a liberal.

My first post was as follows: “I’ve tried to ignore anything Michelle Obama has said after her comment, ‘for the first time in my live, I am proud of my country.’ Although I do remember something about going out and eating fried chicken and some anti-white remarks made to the 2015 graduates of Tuskegee University. I barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday, much less something someone I don’t like said in 2008. I have linked an article about it on my political website and reviewed the two passages that are similar. And that’s what they are…similar. Plus we’re talking a few lines from a fifteen or so minute speech. If that’s all the dems can pick out of the opening night at the convention, I guess the opening night was successful.

A so-called “white guilt” liberal commented to me, “Hi, Nancy, racist much?”

I lit into this person, giving them name of this website and told him what I tell other liberals who have accused me a racism because I don’t like the current president’s policies. This person then indicated that my attitude and reaction demonstrated that I harbored racism. Subsequently, this person indicated that he was prejudiced and racist also, but he tries to intellectually resist it. He admitted that he had work to do since he “brings prejudice to the table.”

This person wanted to help me and pointed out that the mentioning of fried chicken, Tuskegee, and anti-white with respect to Michelle Obama makes me a racist. In other words, pointing out that some of Michelle’s speech to the 2015 Tuskegee grads trashed white people was racist. According to this poster, Michelle Obama should be allowed to say and do anything she pleases, I guess.

The poster went on to accuse me of immediately judging and convicting Michelle Obama due to how she said something in her spouse’s nomination party speech. I didn’t say anything about Michelle Obama’s (2008) speech other than I didn’t remember it. This person also indicated that I condemned the first lady for all eternity, except to remember only the things that she did that were wrong. Oh brother! I don’t like her and I don’t like what she stands for. I’m human, what’s wrong with that? I wouldn’t be surprised if this person had some choice things to say about Nancy Reagan back in the day. But wait! Nancy Reagan was white and that makes it okay to say bad things about her. But Michelle Obama is black, therefore saying negative things about her is not okay.

This person also accused me a being a “label-jacker.” I don’t know what that means and I haven’t taken the time to look it up. I carry the flag of all lives matter to misdirect, denigrate, or water down people of color’s desire to bring focus to what is likely a long-term oppressive cry for help.  The poster said that he/she wanted to help me because I carry prejudice in my heart and mind, indicating that with so many people accusing me of racism, that I should ponder it.

This person is a genuine certified loon; and not having time to stay in this thread, I left. Sure, I could have refuted his accusations, but what good would it have done? There’s no reasoning with these folks. The thread began with a discussion of the alleged plagiarism in Melania’s speech, which should have been nothing than a “nuts and bolts” online conversation. Of course, it evolved into what I described above. I later found out that this person only lives a few hours from me. People like this in the South! “I think I need my smelling salts.”

Unfortunately, there are many folks like this person and they have one vote just like I do. Here’s a few links to articles about these folks. It’s scary.

ARE CONSERVATIVES BECOMING THE JEWS OF THE THIRD REICH

According to AnneFrank.org, Hitler and the Nazis said the Jews were responsible for huge events like losing World War One, and the economic crisis. Of course, this was untrue.  By giving the Jews the blame, Hitler created an enemy. He said that all of Germany’s problems had been caused by the Jews, and many people believed him.

AnneFrank.org goes on to indicate that the solution to all of these problems was to banish the Jews from society. With this political message, and the promise to make Germany a large and economically powerful country, Hitler’s party won the 1932 election. In 1933, he and his party came to power.

Jews in Nazi Germany

According to historylearningsite.co.uk, Hitler blamed the Jews for all the misfortunes that had befallen Germany. The loss of the First World War was the result of a Jewish conspiracy. The Treaty of Versailles was also a Jewish conspiracy designed to bring Germany to her knee. The hyperinflation of 1923 was the result of an international Jewish attempt to destroy Germany.

During the time when Germany was seemingly recovering under Stresseman, what Hitler said about the Jews remained nonsense, listened to only by a few. But during the impact of the Great Depression, when people became unemployed and all looked helpless, Hitler’s search for a scapegoat proved a lot more truthful.

After January 1933, the Jews became the “untermenschen,” the sub-humans. Nazi thugs stopped Germans from sopping in Jewish sops. By 1934, all Jewish shops were marked with the yellow Star of David or had the word, “Juden,” written on the window. SA men stood outside the shops to deter anyone from entering. This was not necessarily a violent approach to the Jews (which would come later), but it was an attempt to economically bankrupt them and destroy what they had spent years building up.

On buses, trains, and park benches, Jews had to sit on seats marked for them. Children at schools were taught specifically anti-Semitic ideas. Jewish school children were openly ridiculed by beachers and the bullying of Jews in the playground by other pupils went unpunished. If the Jewish children responded by not wanting to go to school, then that served a purpose in itself and it also gave the Nazi propagandists a reason to peddle the lie that Jewish children were inherently lazy and could not be bothered to go to school.

In November 1938, a Nazi diplomat was shot dead by a Jew in Paris. Hitler ordered a seven day campaign of terror against the Jews in Germany to be organized by Himmler and the SS. On November 10, a campaign started where 10,000 shops owned by Jews were destroyed and their contents stolen. Homes and synagogues were set on fire and left to burn. The fire brigades showed their loyalty to Hitler by assuming that the buildings would burn down anyway, so why try to prevent it. A huge amount of damage was done to Jewish property, but the Jewish community was ordered to pay a one billion mark fine to pay for the eventual clean-up. Jews were forced to scrub the streets clean.

So, Hitler hated the Jews and blamed the Jews for all of his and Germany’s problems. Fast forward to the present. What group seems to be getting the blame for everything today? Conservatives, particularly those who are white and Christian. Of course the blame the Jews received was unjustified and pure nonsense. Blaming the White Christian Right is also unjustified and pure nonsense. But it’s happening.

How many times have you heard President Obama blame the Republicans in Congress for not acting on issues in which he feels they should act? Remember, Mr. President, we do have a system of checks and balances in place and politics is politics.

Just weeks ago, when a shooting by an Islamic terrorist took place at a gay night club in Orlando, the Christian Right was blamed by many of those on the left. During a pride parade in New York City, a rainbow banner was displayed saying, “Republican hate kills.”

RHK

A sacred right that all American citizens have is the right to criticize their elected officials and hold their government accountable. As my grandmother once said, “If you don’t like what’s going on, you can say you don’t like it.” Sadly, though, any criticism of President Obama is considered racist by the “tolerant left,” even though nothing is ever said about his skin color or his ethnicity. In addition to being called a racist, those who disagree with this president politically are generally accused of being haters. You can remind members of the “tolerant left” that all presidents from George Washington forward had their detractors and opponents, but that always falls on deaf ears.

I mentioned an incident above where, in 1938, a Nazi diplomat was shot by a Jew in Paris. As a result, Hitler ordered a reign of terror on the Jews. Fast forward to the present. Two recent incidents of white police shooting black men in Louisiana and Minnesota have caused rioting and looting. And there have been a handful of similar isolated incidents in the past couple of years that have also triggered rioting and looting. I know the looting and rioting taking place as a result of these shootings pales in comparison to Hitler’s reign of terror on the Jews, but a pattern seems to be coming together.

The liberals have and continue to blame President George W. Bush for things that were not his fault such as the Iraq War and the financial collapse of 2008. I’ve written extensively on these things in the past, indicating what happened and how these things can’t be laid solely at the feet of George W. Bush. Do you think any liberal would bother to read any of what I’ve written or what anyone else who doesn’t blame President Bush solely for these things has written? Of course not!

Could we see something akin to the holocaust, except the U.S. government is terrorizing Christians, white people, conservatives? I certainly hope not. But white Christian conservatives are getting blamed more and more each day. Just remember, it started off with Hitler blaming the Jews for things they had nothing to do with.

RACISM THEN AND NOW

The terms racism and racist began to be common household words sometime after Civil Rights legislation was passed in 1964. Up until the current president was elected, the terms racism or racist generally meant the following: denigrating a person or persons because of their race or ethnicity; negative speech or actions about or against a person or persons relating to their race/skin color or ethnicity.

Fast forward to today and the definition of racism sure has changed to where just about anything any liberal says is racist or racism is racist or racism.

An article on townhall.com in April 2013, outlined 15 moronic things liberals call racism since Obama was elected.

Obama to blame for deteriorating race relations.

Obama sure looks angry here.

  1. Criticizing the IRS: “Republicans are using the IRS scandal as their latest weapon in the war against the black man. “IRS is the new “N” word. Martin Bashir.
  2. Having a Republican National Convention during a hurricane: “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.” Yahoo News Washington bureau chief, David Chalian.
  3. Wanting to own a gun to prevent break-ins: “I am loathe to bring up what is in our head because we don’t like to talk about it so much. But on this particular day, on Martin Luther King Day, I think this needs to be said. That imaginary person that’s going to break into your home and kill you, who does that person look like?” Michael Moore
  4. Mentioning the Constitution or respect for the Founding Fathers: “The language of GOP racial politics is heavy on emphemisms that allow the speaker to deny any responsibility for the racial content of his message. References to a lack of respect for the Founding Fathers and the Constitution also make certain earl perk up by demonizing anyone supposedly threatening core “old fashioned American values.” Juan Williams.
  5. Calling Obama angry: “That really bothered me. You notice Romney said anger twice. He’s really trying to used racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.” Toure.
  6. Saying that Obama lies: “Surrounded by middle aged white guys, Joe Wilson yelled, ‘You lie!’ at a president who didn’t. But fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken work in the air: You lie, boy!” Maureen Dowd.
  7. Noting that Obama is privileged: “Spotlighting his elite education is tantamount to racial bigotry because it insinuates that ‘he took the place of someone else through affirmative action, that someone else being white.’” Jonathan Capehart.
  8. Saying that unions boss Obama around: “The Republican Party is saying that the President of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this President around. Does that sound to you like they are trying to consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that, of course, a black man can’t be the real boss?” Lawrence O’Donnell.
  9. Supporting voter ID: “If you go back to the year 2000, when we had an obvious disaster and saw that our voting process needed refinement, and we did that in the America Votes Act and made sure that we could iron out those kinks, now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally, and very transparently, block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democrat candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
  10. Saying, “I want my country back:” “Do you remember the teabaggers? It was just so much easier when we could just call them racists. I just don’t know why we can’t call them racists, or functionally retarded adults. The functionally retarded adults, the racists, with their cries of ‘I want my country back.’ You know what they’re really saying is, ‘I want my white guy back.’ The apparently had to problem at all for the last eight years of habeas corpus being suspended, the Constitution being (blanked) on, illegal surveillance, liked to on a war or two, two stolen elections, yes, the John Kerry one was stolen too. That’s not tin-foil hat time.” Janeane Garofalo
  11. Being fans of Herman Cain: “One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes White Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he’s giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.” Karen Finney.
  12. Fighting for the Second Amendment: “I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests at heart.” Jason Whitlock.
  13. Republicans trying to keep Obama from being re-elected: “Look at, look, at the Tea Partiers, who are controlling the Republican Party…Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we can do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.’ It is a racist thing.” Morgan Freeman.
  14. Disliking the fact that Obama is President: “They can’t stand the idea that he’s president, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group, so what? It’s the sense that the white race must rule, that’s what racism is, and they can’t stand the idea that a man who’s not white is president. That is real, that sense of racial superiority and rule is in the hearts of some people in this Country.” Chris Matthews.
  15. Disliking Barak Obama: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barak Obama is based on the back that he is a black man, that he’s African American.” Jimmy Carter.

15 Moronic things called racism since Obama was elected.

Here are some additional things liberals call racism up through the year 2016:

  • Cheering for the Denver Broncos with white quarterback, Peyton Manning; instead of cheering for the Carolina Panthers with Black quarterback, Cam Newton.”
  • Not eating turnip greens. (Actually, I was accused of racism for this many years ago).
  • Asking somebody black what time they get out of church on Sunday (I was also accused of being racist for this years ago).
  • A white person wearing his or her hair in dreadlocks (this is called “cultural appropriation”).
  • Saying you don’t like somebody black who just happens to play for your team’s “hated rival” (Another one for which I have been accused of racism).
  • You’re a racist simply because you were born with racist tendencies and you don’t cry yourself to sleep at night because you’re white.
  • Saying “All Lives Matter.”

What’s sad is that liberals make this stuff up; yes, they lie, and they keep lying and keep hurling false accusations at those who don’t agree with them; forgetting that the freedom to disagree as to how we govern ourselves is one of our sacred rights.

Some conservatives attempt to thwart the accusations make by liberals by saying the following:

  • But I have friends who are black.
  • I don’t care what color his skin is, I don’t support his policies.
  • But I supported Ben Carson in the primary.
  • I patronize black-owned businesses.
  • I like turnip greens.
  • My favorite singer is black.
  • I only dislike him because he plays for (blank).

Unfortunately, trying to illustrate by example that you’re not racist falls on deaf liberal ears. In fact, liberals will the turn things around and tell you that the only reason you supported Ben Carson is because it made you feel good, it make you feel like you weren’t really a racist.

Because the above won’t work with liberals, we have to try something else. Whenever, I ‘m accused of racism, I put it back on the liberal to point out what I’ve said or what I’ve written that denigrates blacks or any minorities because of skin color. And you should try this too. Hold their feet to the fire. Make them answer you.

Recently, I confronted two liberals online; one directly accused me of racism and the other shared a meme which indicated that white Christians hated President Obama and the first family because of the color of their skin. The liberal who directly accused me of racism apologized, but then turned things around and appeared to indirectly imply that I was a racist.

Which one of the above moronic comments do I think is the most moronic? What Morgan Freeman said about it being racist when the Republicans worked against Obama in his 2012 re-election bid. An opposition party opposing an incumbent in his bid for re-election? Why I never heard of such! (Sarcasm).

And what’s really said about liberals and their moronic suggestions of racism is that it covers up incidents of true racism that should be addressed, corrected, and possibly making amends.

DO LIBERALS ACTUALLY THINK THEY’RE PERFECT?

We’ve heard these things a million times from liberals…Conservatives hate the poor, conservatives hate minorities/are racists, conservatives are bigots, conservatives stereotype, etc. But, liberals are as, if not more, guilty of these things than conservatives are.

A liberal friend once implied that I had no respect for differing points of view.

I turned it on her and said that was the pot calling the kettle black and that it was liberals that had no respect for views that differed from theirs. And it was the liberals that were the real racists, bigots, etc. This friend was taken aback. She obviously thought that since she was an avowed liberal and liberals accuse conservatives of the things I mentioned above, that she couldn’t possibly be any of the things that conservatives are.

Every now and then, the Dixie Chicks are brought up by liberals.

Their fan base, which was mainly comprised by southern conservatives, quit purchasing their CDs, quit going to their concerts, and quite listening to radio stations that played their music. And there were some folks that said mean-spirited things about them. However, President Bush, taking the high road, said that they had their right to express their opinions.

When a couple of liberals brought up the Dixie Chicks a couple of weeks ago on a forum, I indicated that the Dixie Chicks certainly had the right to express their opinions and that their fans also had the right to express themselves in not purchasing their music, going to their concerts, etc. Subsequently, I was told that it was about labeling, exaggeration, and distortion.

I replied that perhaps liberals should look inward. Was it okay to label someone who believed that marriage should be between one man and one woman a homophobe? Was it okay to label someone a racist because they disagreed with the Obama administration’s policies? Was it okay to label someone a bitter clinger because they believed in God and in the second amendment? I was then labeled close-minded and one that thought that Fox News was real news. I think I won that little back and forth. When liberals begin person attacks, it generally means that the conservative has pinned them to the wall.

Several months ago, I was on a liberal forum and suggested that, instead of name calling and insult hurling, that they might want to re-enforce their points of view with facts in hopes that you might be able to win someone over to their side. I then indicated that they probably wouldn’t win someone like me over. Being a political blogger, I’m secure in my political philosophy and am able to refute liberal facts. I guess I shouldn’t have typed in that last sentence. I was then called the usual litany of names. My bad.

Most liberals I know have an air of superiority about them and when their faults are pointed out, they get very angry. Most want God taken out of our society because they think they can establish heaven here on earth. As liberals they are perfect and can make things perfect for everyone. So, who needs God?

I’ve witnessed liberals indicating that conservatives are not Christians and are going to hell. Isn’t that being judgmental? Liberals are supposed to be “free thinkers.” Kind of live and let live and respectful of differences. And they’re anything but…
