I’m not sure whom I find more despicable, the leftist pols who spin the most amazingly absurd narratives or the leftist morons who gobble them up as Gospel, infuse them with their own special brand of hate, and spew forth bile and vitriol like an overactive, over-reactive volcano. Yes, I’m kind of talking about what’s going on as the left struggles to defend their Dear Leader and “messiah” on Benghazi. Note that the last link was to a British news site; oddly, apart from Fox News, the only coverage of this massive story is being conducted overseas (oh, and it’s the leftist Guardian, not the rightish-but-still-faaar-left-of-me Telegraph, but you know how those Brits are just RAAAACIST Republicans who hate Obama. Or something.). Note, too, that some tabloid television networks, like NBC, are willing to admit that Obama is incompetent or “sloppy.” That’s huge. He’s been the bestest best thing since best things were first found to be best, but now suddenly he’s incompetent? That’s one hell of an admission from the salivating, slavish media. And we know why they’ll throw out that bone.
And, frankly, I–at least–don’t care. We’re talking about “news” organizations that failed to cover the Gosnell trial because it was “local” but spent hours and hours on some crazy, murdering biotch’s guilty verdict . . . while the Benghazi hearings are the actual news–national and international news–of the day. Indeed, the hearings are being covered not only in Britain but in Germany, even in Russia and in the Middle East. Our “media”? Dancing around like puppies for scraps from their master’s table. Massive fail.
But I’m not really talking about that, per se, others are covering it amazingly; instead, I am mostly talking about . . . well, just generally. I was just reading through some articles and a couple illustrate my point magnificently: one talked about how the majority of Americans accept gay people and the other was about the Traitor in Chief’s comments about immigration. Oh, and let’s not forget the bogus stat that 90% of Americans support background checks. Dude, 90% of Americans can’t agree that the sky is blue, but the myriad lies–outrageous, in-your-face-ridiculous, “not one dime” lies–this president tells are not really my point.
Here’s the thing, the point, if you will. A poll shows that the majority of Americans accept gay people, and that’s probably true. I do. And I know that my conservative friends and relatives do. But here’s where everything gets murky for sophomoric leftist brains: I can accept gay people without *gasp* supporting gay “marriage.” Yes, it’s true! I can also accept that Obama is president without wanting to make him dictator for life. Imagine that!
Nuance that is, of course, totally lost on the all or nothing, my way or the highway left. You can’t just accept gay people, you can’t just accept that the government should recognize gay relationships as they do those of heterosexuals. Oh no! That’s not good enough, not “tolerant” enough for the most intolerant people on the planet. You must accept that God is wrong, that your religion, your faith, your beliefs are all wrong. You must embrace something that you might accept but not endorse; if you’re not ready to don a pink tutu or a suit and tie and march in the gay pride parade, then you’re not tolerant enough. Actually, well, you’re just a toothless troglodyte teabagging troll.
It’s sad, isn’t it that our wanna-be intellectual and emotional superiors on the left are incapable of reason, of compassion, of understanding, of anything remotely resembling human feeling?
Sad, and I used to find it perplexing, but it’s really not. They just have simple, childlike thought processes that literally jump from “you accept gay people” to “therefore, you must accept gay ‘marriage'” and with that the utter destruction of religion and of religious freedom in this country. And if you don’t, well, everyone knows you can’t accept gay people without supporting gay “marriage”; therefore, you must HATE gay people! Again, uh huh. The lack of logic, of critical thought, is mind-numbing. But not unexpected.
The left does this on purpose and urges its mindless sheeple to not think, to be “tolerant” and to think that tolerance somehow means acceptance, even submission. It does not. I can tolerate something without accepting it, much less submitting to it. There’s a huge difference, actually, but the English language seems to be a bit problematic for shallow, unthinking leftists (probably why they feel the need to “revise” and “adapt” it so often).
And we see this knee-jerking, conclusion-jumping, skipping over major points and differences, ignoring of language and its meaning again in Obama’s statement that “unless you’re a Native American, you came from someplace else.” Well, no . . . poop, Sherlock. (omg, is that an awesome show or what? Anyway,) yes, Dear Leader, we–well, okay, maybe not me, personally. Or my parents. But sure, somewhere down the line, some of my relatives–came to the United States from someplace else. But here’s the thing, they didn’t come here illegally. They came here within and abiding the law, respecting their new home and hoping to succeed in the land of the free and home of the brave. They didn’t sneak in, they didn’t “overstay their visas,” they didn’t come as “birth tourists,” they came as legal aliens who acquired citizenship and paid their own way, often against great odds.
But conflating all immigration with illegal immigration, all immigrants with illegal immigrants, is par for the regressive course. Now, do you really think that Obama himself doesn’t understand the difference? Of course he does. Do you really think that Obama doesn’t know the difference between accepting gays and demanding that gay “marriage” be the law of the land? Of course he does. As in all things from the economy to foreign policy, he just plays his mindless minions like a fiddle. Rome may burn . . . but his disciples won’t notice. Until it’s too late.
