MORE LIBERAL HATE – August 17, 2015

I’ve written many articles on the intense hatred that liberals have against anyone who doesn’t walk in lock-step with their beliefs. Of course, liberals love to accuse non-liberals of hate and do it on a regular basis. If you are against the current president’s policies, you hate the current president because he’s black. If you’re against giving illegal aliens benefits and believe they should be deported to their country of origin, you hate immigrants. By the way, they fail to distinguish between those who come here legally and follow the rules and those who come here illegally, breaking the law. If you question entitlement programs that were implemented to allegedly help the poor, but don’t seem to be working, you hate the poor. When an individual or group of individuals make accusations and point fingers, it’s generally a good bet that they are really the guilty ones, instead of the ones at which they’re pointing fingers.

The liberals hated George W. Bush and, along with the current president, blamed him for everything during the first 6-1/2 months of the Obama presidency. I guess even the liberals knew that was getting old. Now, it seems, they have another entity to blame for everything and that entity of Fox News. And that’s laughable because Fox News is a media outlet, it doesn’t make policy. It is the number one cable news network in the nation, having the most viewers. And we all know that liberals call Fox News watchers really bad names. I’ve been called all of those names before. Morons, delusional, and idiots are three of the names liberals call Fox News watchers. Liberals have also indicated that Fox News has brain-washed its viewers. So, liberals, let me pose a question to you. If Fox News watchers are idiots and can be brainwashed into conservative thought, why did the current President get elected twice? If we’re all brainwashed idiots via Fox News, wouldn’t we have voted for the Republican candidate?

One of the milder names that liberals call Fox News is “Faux News.” I’m not going to say much about that because I’ve been knows to call CNN the “Clinton News Network” or the “Communist News Network.” I’ve also called MSNBC, “PMSNBC.” We all have names for things we don’t like. With the exception of the above, however, I have never put those terms in print. As a political blogger I should maintain my professionalism and make every effort to do so.

I can honestly say that I’ve never called CNN, MSNBC, or network news viewers names. I have called for the elimination of NPR because it is a liberal leaning media outlet and I don’t particularly like my tax dollars being used for speech I don’t agree with. NPR viewers say that the programming is excellent. Well, if NPR is so great, then it should be able to go private and sell advertising like any other private media outlet. When I said this to a friend of a liberal friend, he indicated that only the extremely intelligent and elite were capable or appreciating NPR. In other words, I’m an unenlightened oaf and of course we all know that. To that I say, “If you love NPR so much, then maybe you and those enlightened few who are capable of appreciating it should create a subscription based channel. “ The friend of the friend informed me that he was just a school teacher and didn’t make a lot of money. So, he expects me and everyone else to pay for something that he loves because he and his elitist friends can’t afford it. It’s sad, but that’s how liberals think. I don’t understand it, but then again I’m an unenlightened oaf.

Of all these liberals who hate Fox News, I often wonder how many of them have actually sat down and watched Fox News. I was having a back and forth on Facebook with a liberal friend and when I informed him that the senior news anchor for Fox was a liberal, he said he didn’t know that Fox had “hard news.” H-E-L-L-O! This person disparages Fox News and it appears he has never watched it.

During George W. Bush’s presidency, I never heard him make disparaging remarks about those American who didn’t support his policies. He recognized and respected the rights of all Americans to disagree. During the Iraq war, he often met with those who were against the war, especially those who had loved-ones in Iraq. Hillary Clinton calls conservatives “wingnuts,” hence the name of this blog. President Bill Clinton once said that conservatives had “that extra chromosome,” denigrating those with Down syndrome.

Of course, the current president frequently denigrates and belittles those who don’t agree with his policies. He has even asked his supporters to keep track of those who disagree with him. And we all know what he thinks about Fox News and Fox News watchers. I never heard President George W. Bush disparage certain media outlets and their viewers. Having said that, President Bush didn’t care for the media and presidents generally don’t.

Bill O’Reilly, of the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, has commented many times about the hatred that the left has for those who don’t agree with them. Bill has also indicated that there is hatred on the right and there certainly is. Bill, however, indicates that there is much more on the left. That has been my observation also. Yes, there is hatred toward liberals by conservatives, but it is much more prevalent on the left. I’m sure that liberals will say I’m lying and call me names. Again, I think I’ve been called everything there is to be called by liberals. Maybe I should have a contest to see if a liberal can come up with a name to call me that I haven’t yet been called.

HOW MUCH WILL IT TAKE?

The last couple of weeks have been good ones for the Democrats and the current President. In its rulings, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare and same sex marriages. I have democrat/liberal friends and most are good people who sincerely think that Obamacare is a good thing and that allowing gays to marry will end oppression for them. How could anybody not want everyone to have access to affordable health care and how could good person not want equality for all?

With Obamacare, everyone I know who has to purchase their health insurance independently has seen a substantial increase in their monthly premiums. In addition, deductibles and co-pays have increased. In order to qualify for subsidies, a single individual must have approximately $12,000 in taxable income that is verifiable. However, if you estimate incorrectly, you could owe the feds at tax time.

For example, you begun the year doing odd jobs after being laid off from your high paying job. You are then able to get subsidies. Later in the year, you get a high paying job with health insurance as a benefit. You’re thus off Obamacare, but because your income for the year is much higher than you estimated earlier, you may owe the feds part or all of the subsidies you received earlier in the year.

There are so many strings attached to the subsidies that you wonder if it’s even worth trying to qualify for subsidies. Tax time next year is sure to be interesting.

Before Obamacare, 85% of Americans had health insurance and were reasonable satisfied with their health insurance. That leaves 15% who were uninsured for various reasons. If it was the desire of this administration that everyone have health insurance, why didn’t they leave the 85% along and concentrate only on the 15%? The answer: it was not the administration’s desire that everyone have health insurance, it was their desire to control one-sixth of the nation’s economy; and in controlling the health insurance industry, the government controls you.

With regard to the ruling on same sex marriages, the Supreme Court has ignored the rule of the people in 31 states and ordered that all states recognize marriages where the partners are of the same sex. With this, there has been talk of ministers being jailed and churches being fined for refusing to perform same sex marriages. Instead of seeking another bakery or photographer for services at the wedding, same sex couples are suing with intent to destroy the business and those folks who are associated with the business. Now, how Christian is that? Wait, I’m not supposed to invoke Christianity, am I? Wouldn’t it just be easier to find another photographer or caterer? But, what do I know, I’m just an unenlightened oaf. This college graduate/former software engineer is not able to grasp liberal thought.

What’s my point, you ask? The current administration doesn’t care about the Americans citizens having access to quality healthcare. If they did, we wouldn’t have the abomination that is Obamacare. Also, as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the current administration doesn’t care about equal rights for Americans who adhere to an alternative lifestyle. This is nothing but a war on Christianity.

Then there’s the confederate flag controversy. I just read an article where CNN was so shocked that the majority of Americans, not just southern Americans feel that the confederate flag is a symbol of pride and not a symbol of racism. But that doesn’t stop the “tolerant left” from labeling all those who take pride in the confederate flag as racists. In other words, they refuse to accept differing points of view and that makes them bigots. What else is new, we already knew that.

What’s so sad, though, is that the Trans Pacific Partnership is being implemented behind our backs. The TPP will put an end to American sovereignty, make us subservient to other countries, some with totalitarian regimes, and take us several giant steps forward to one world government. When the flak over same sex marriage, Obamacare, and the confederate flag dissipate, we’re going to find that the current President has kept his campaign promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Things are looking mighty grim. The Republicans we sent to Congress have not stood up to this administration. I don’t know what they’re thinking. Are they scared of getting blamed for a government shutdown? Are they afraid of the current President? Are they afraid of the liberal media?

Our Republican led Congress is doing nothing to stop the abominable acts of the current administration. And if they are not going to stop the destruction of the United States of America, who is? It may have to be “We, the People.” Am I willing to travel to Washington and demonstrate? I’m ready to go. I don’t want to do it alone. I’d be unsuccessful. Am I willing to stand outside the White House with a sign? Yes, I am. Am I willing to engage in unruly behavior? I’m not.

What do I want to do? I would be willing to travel with a group to Washington to meet with the likes of Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, and perhaps the current President and present them with facts and grievances. Would the above consider meeting with a group of concerned citizens? I doubt it.

There has to be a way, though, to take our country back. I sincerely believe that there will be some sort of uprising soon. In case you didn’t know, I’m a huge Alabama football fan. Most of the time my team wins and wins convincingly. But the few times that they have stumbled, they’ve always turned around and “made a run for it.” Alabama doesn’t go down easily. I think the good people of the United States of America will do the same. Things may not be bad enough yet that people are ready to fight, but I hope and pray that at a certain point, the strong will stand their ground and not let the United States of America go down in flames. How much further do we have to go and how much worse do things have to get before that happens?

LIBERALS GONE WILD – PART SIX

This is the last post in my Liberals Gone Wild series where I have examined an article on mediamatters.org, a website for Media Matters for America, a progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the media.

Media Matters published an article on its website showcasing numerous videos where it was alleging that the Fox Cable News channel was disparaging the poor people of this nation. This came on the heels of the current President of the United States making a comment to the effect that “we need to change the way we report the news.” He belittled Fox News and indicated that they continually disparaged the poor of this nation calling them lazy, sponges, and leeches.

The act of a president even commenting on news reporting is beneath the office of the presidency. An independent media, holding government accountable and reporting the news, is necessary to sustaining a free democratic society. Not only were the president’s comments beneath him, they were scary. If the current president had his way, I believe that he would insist on a state run media where we, the people, are given only the information that the almighty government wants us to have.

In my previous posts, I reviewed and commented on the numerous videos that mediamatters.org highlighted. I found two comments, three at best that might have been in poor taste, and I said might. I really didn’t find anything in these videos that disparaged the poor. In these numerous videos, various entitlement programs were certainly discussed along with their effectiveness. As such, it appears that liberals don’t want these programs even discussed and debated, because that’s what they apparently consider as defaming the poor.

One particular word the president used when dissing Fox News was “continually.” Continually? I looked at the dates on these videos. Three were in 2011, four were in 2012, three were in 2013, one was in 2014, and six were in 2015 with three of these six on May 12 and one on May 13. One of these videos was from the John Stewart show where he replayed a video of Fox’s Stuart Varney, taking almost everything in the video out of context. I would hardly call this “continuous.”

Liberals are not tolerant in the least, and how they can preach tolerance like they do with a straight face is beyond my comprehension. All they can do is trash the other side and try to divert attention away from the issue at hand. Sadly, it works. The mainstream media picks up their talking points and it’s in their publications and broadcast over their networks. Low information voters hear it and because they are low information voters and would rather watch mindless programs such as Dancing with the Stars, than keeping up to date on current events, take it as fact. Then these low information voters, vote.

When liberals say that conservatives hate the poor, and are bigots, racists, and homophobes, the low information voters believe it. When the liberals insist that man-made climate change is undeniable and disparage those of us who have our doubts, the low information voters take their work for it without doing any research on their own.

In the past few weeks, liberals, including the current administration, driven by Media Matters for America have declared all-out war on Fox News. It’s obvious they don’t believe in freedom of speech, freedom of expression, or freedom of the press. There has also been a war on their number one personality, Bill O’Reilly.

As a political blogger, I have to keep up with everything and that means viewing left wing websites and watching CNN, and MSNBC. I rarely watch the network news, though. And while I know conservatives do say some putrid things about liberals, the things conservatives say, do not hold a candle to what liberals say about conservatives. Fox News watchers have been called every bad name I can think of. The hate and intolerance is much, much more dominant on the left.

Hey liberals, including the folks at Media Matters, if Fox News lies and/or quotes wrong information, why don’t you set the record straight? Why won’t some of you pundits go on Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity and make the arguments for you side? Fox News is number one, you know. You’ll be heard by more people than you will be if you stick to your CNN’s and MSNBC’s. But no, you refuse to return phone calls for invitations to appear on Fox News and present your side of the story. Instead, you hide under your desks and continue to defame conservatives while refusing to engage in meaningful dialog. You care nothing about facts and if the facts don’t suit you, you continue your barrage of insults.

Yes, you people make me mad. I don’t understand your logic and your thought processes. In my opinion, there’s no way a reasonable and prudent person could interpret those videos on the mediamatters.org website as disparaging the poor. Again, no reasonable way.

I’ve said this before and I’ll continue saying it, I’m a southern white conservative Christian, everything you liberals hate. To you, I’m also an unenlightened oaf. Would someone that was “enlightened” interpret those videos as disparaging the poor? I don’t think so. You know what you’re doing. You just want to destroy anyone who doesn’t agree with you and doesn’t tow your liberal line. You refuse to recognize differing points of view and have no scruples. You people think nothing of out and out lying and taking things out of context. In describing those videos you left out many phrases and sentences in an effort to get to the low information voters who will take what you say at face value.

You liberals aren’t enlightened at all. You’re what I call slick. I’ve known some “slick” people in my life. They live their lives slightly underneath the surface. Because they don’t play by the rules, they’re constantly getting themselves in trouble. As a result, they develop skills, if you can call them skills, which will get them out of that trouble. And they seem to always land on their feet. But these so-called “slick” people do eventually get caught up in their lies and frauds. Again, y’all are slick and you do seem to always land on your feet. But one of these days…

WAR ON EVERYTHING – PART THREE

My first two posts in my War on Everything series were about the war on Southerners and the Southern United States in general and the war on White People, respectively. This post will be about the war on conservatives, and if you don’t think there’s a war on those of us that are politically conservative, I have some swamp land in Louisiana that you might be interested in.

The following are a list of reasons that should convince you beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is a war on conservatives. This list includes, but is not limited to:

  • The Mainstream Media Hates Conservatives: While liberals often express surprise when I say this, they’re either dumb as posts or lying through their teeth. In their pockets, liberals have the three networks, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, most of the large metropolitan newspapers, Time, Newsweek, a number of talk radio programs, and many websites/blogs. Conservatives have Fox News Cable, The Wall Street Journal, a substantial number of talk radio programs, many websites/blogs, and certain off the main drag soft publications. Before my cable TV company offered Fox News, it was all that I could do to keep from literally screaming at some of the stuff they would broadcast. I remember having to watch the Democrat and Republican National Conventions in 2000 on CNN. The commentators were slobbering all over themselves during the Democrat convention. However, for the Republican convention, they put down everything that the Republicans did or said. The convention ended with Lee Greenwood singing “God Bless the USA.” When Lee began, Judy Woodruff said the following, “For some reason, the Republicans love this song.” She said this with a condescending air. I could go on and on, but I’m not here to write a novel.
  • We currently have a Democrat Administration: How many times have you heard the current president trash the Republicans? “Now the Republicans, blah, blah, blah…” Hillary Clinton is known for calling conservatives Wing Nuts, thus the name of this blog. Maybe I should thank her. Former President Bill Clinton once said that conservatives have that extra chromosome. The president was apparently indicating that Republicans had Down Syndrome or some other form of mental retardation. That was such a disgusting comment to make, but liberals laughed. Had a Republican said something like they, he or she would have been forced to resign their office, but as far as I know, Clinton never apologized.
  • Here a double standard, there a double standard, everywhere a double standard: If Benghazi had happened under a Republican president’s watch, he or she would have been impeached. If a Republican president had lied through his teeth, and knowingly lied like the current president did when he said, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance,” he or she would have been impeached. The current president once gave a speech where he indicated that the United States was comprised of fifty-seven states. I shudder to think what would have happened if a Republican president had said such a thing. Remember when Vice President Dan Quayle misspelled potato, after it was misspelled on the cue-card? All of the liberals called him ignorant, an idiot, and everything else. While I consider most liberal policies very bad for this country and get angry at the thought that anyone in their right mind would be for such policies, the double standard makes me even angrier. While anyone can make mistakes many mistakes are made, when a Republican makes a mistake, it usually leads to him or her resigning from office. However, when a Democrat makes a similar mistake, the liberal media almost always gives them a pass saying that no one’s perfect.
  • Movies and TV shows depict conservatives in a bad light: I’m not going to give specific examples of this because I don’t want to take the time to do the research. But it does happen. If you don’t believe me, do the research yourself.

This is one of my shorter posts because there is so much out there than proves my point that there is, indeed, a war on conservatives and conservatism. You can and should do additional research. Also, watch TV and listen to various media outlets.  It’s there.

MORNING AFTER

It was definitely a “heady” night for Republicans after retaining a majority in the House of Representatives and taking control of the Senate. We’re already witnessing the whining of Democrats claiming voter suppression. I’m sure there will be additional whining to come. And I’m going to make a list. I’m also going to make a list of every time the current president blames the Republicans for something.

As I said in a Facebook post last night, the political winds have shifted and the American people have spoken. And yes, it was a referendum on the current president’s policies. I don’t care what anybody else says. This president has done everything possible to shred the U.S. Constitution and fundamentally transform America into a socialist totalitarian state; a state where the government desires to control as many aspects of your life as possible. The Democrats want to control what you eat, what you drive, your thermostat setting, your news, etc.

While this president indicated that Congress was a do nothing Congress and that the Republicans were nothing but obstructionists, the Republican Congress passed many pieces of legislation and sent to the Democrat controlled Senate where Harry Reid just let the proposed pieces of legislation die, not even sending them out to committees. That was much underpublicized and, of course, low information voters believed that the House Republicans weren’t doing anything. I wonder if there is a list of the pieces of legislation that the House sent to the Senate in which Harry Reid just let die. I may have to do a little research on that.

This “go-round” legislation should be acted on, voted on, and sent to the current president for his signature or veto. And this needs to be publicized. Of course I know that CNN, MSNBC, and the networks are not going to want to cover these things, but get it the old college try. Send a bill to repeal Obamacare to the president’s desk and let him veto it. Obamacare is unpopular and Americans want it repealed. So, do it! And don’t hesitate to use all of the legislative tricks that the Democrats used to force Obamacare down our throats. By them doing it first, they gave you license to do it. And if they start whining, just get right back in their faces.

Even though the current president was stripped of a lot of his support, I’m sure he still has that pen and that phone. Knowing what he was put in power to do, severely weaken the United States of America and its citizenry, he’s going to use that pen and phone to enact some of the most egregious policies that you’ve ever seen. He’s said many times that he would go around Congress, if that’s what it took, to enact his policies that would lead to his vision for America.

You might say, well, what good came out of last night’s election? A lot of good came out of last night’s results. The American people let this president know that they don’t like his policies and want them repealed. At best Congress can refuse to fund a lot of his stuff and render it useless. There will, though, be bad publicity. Remember the Democrats have CNN, MSNBC, and the networks. Republican are going to continue to be demonized.

The Republicans have to make sure that they get their message out and they must be assertive and not be scared of being called names. Also, as citizens, we have to take the responsibility to be informed voters and not jump to conclusions at first blush. Do some research, don’t let anyone tell you what to think and how to vote. This country was founded on rugged individualism. So, be rugged individuals and don’t forget to continue to hold your elected officials accountable. It was the intent of our founding fathers that we continually question the government and make sure that the government works for we the people and not the other way around.
