We don’t talk to each other!

Posted by DNW on 2013/10/16

No need to go into the details. The hand wringers of the mainstream left accuse conservatives of not reading or communicating with them.

How would they know?

You access a “mainstream” Internet news site. You read some article published on, say, the Huff Post or Yahoo.

Comments are invited.

The article or opinion is the usual lefty crap. You think you might very politely let them know where they have fallen into error.

Leave comment . OK

Send. OK

Sign in first please. Huh? OK.

Register first please. Ah … well, OK

Then: Sorry, administrative trouble, try back later.

In the meantime the string of self-congratulating liberal pseudo-intellectuals grows ever longer.

“I’m not interested in this dog and pony show” you tell yourself.

“There is no point in even bothering” you say.

“But someone ought to set them straight on a certain matter of fact.”

Against your better judgement you persist. Register. Sign in. Write. Send. Oops! You encounter this:

It's not like we want to monitor and record everything

It’s not like we want to monitor and record everything

And the left complains about the chilling of communication and  “free speech” … [This is where you say “Har dee har har!” in your best braying snort]

That’s why blogs like this exist; in part because the left just isn’t worth the trouble it takes to even try and talk with them.

UPDATE:

Commenter AOTC annoyed at the activities of the shameless Alan Grayson, has observed that she imagines that he might look like a notorious and casual liar whose commenting privileges we had to suspend and whose person we had to ban from this site.

This is probably something many wonder about or would comment on: whether the fact that X looks like Y possibly means anything in moral terms. We would cite Chris Matthews as a prime instance of this line of thinking.

Though, I would say, Matthews went a  bit over the top with his remarks regarding conservatives rallying around those menacing ultra-male politicians with the “black Irish” kinds of looks which Chrissy finds so alarming in Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz.

The late of comment and now unlamented non-presence Perry Hood, seems to think in the same vein. He wants to hang Joe McCarthy around Ted Cruz’ neck on the basis of a supposed  physical resemblance.

But then, as with so much else involving the old Gap Bridger’s work, it’s difficult to sort out what might be the fellow traveler’s own ideas and work from what it is that he has just received in his email  in box “for immediate publication” from Kos Central.

Wherever it is that this Matthews-Hood guilt by phenotype meme actually originates, I don’t necessarily buy into it; and I certainly would not morally indict anyone on the basis of their looks.

But if following Matthew’s lead for fun I were to look for resemblances among morally suspect persons, and Grayson were the standard of comparison, then, as far as looks go, I find the following comparisons as or more likely than Cruz/McCarthy.

This,

Alan Grayson, propagandist

Alan Grayson, propagandist

With this, for example …

Martin Borman

Martin Borman

 

Not, we should make clear, that their both sharing piggish features means that they also share exactly the same totalitarian/collectivist ideologies.

One, Martin Borman was a notorious national socialist from Germany, while the other, now of Florida is apparently a different sub-type of left-fascist.  As grounds for this latter characterization, I think that we can confidently cite Grayson’s support of the individual mandate as clearly defining his ideological stance when it comes to “bundled” responsibility.  A Sozialstaat man, obviously; and he looks it.

 

 

Here’s another fellow of their stripe for comparison’s sake …

Trumka

Obama’s Political Games Backfiring UPDATE!

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/05/13

Obama tried to play a political game with his Federal Budget proposal, which was not meant to pass but only to paint Republicans in a bad light. It went down to defeat in the Democrat-held US Senate 97-0. Obama’s naked political ploy fizzled badly. So, not learning from shooting himself in the foot, he tried the exact same thing the next year. It went down to defeat in the US House over 400-0. In neither case did a single Congresscritter, Republican or Democrat, vote for it. Ignominious defeat for the cynically hyper-partisan Obama who was looking or easy political talking points. It’s hard to call Republicans obstructionists when even the Democrats vote against your crap sandwiches.

Then came the whole “stay at home mothers don’t do any real work” back-fire fiasco. And his Administration’s direct frontal attack on Catholics, who are a major Democrat voting bloc. Again, Obama’s corrupt Leftist machine had failed to realize the US is not, at all, a radical Leftist political environment but rather a center-right one. Will Obama and his handlers ever learn? Apparently not.

With a clear majority of States in the Union voting for Traditional Marriage, including California, Obama has come out in favor of homosexual “marriage”. And it’s already backfiring. Jeff Poor at The Daily Caller (HT Hot Air Headlines) writes about Socialist thug and Union Boss Richard Trumka’s reaction and warning:

On Friday’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” on Bloomberg TV, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka acknowledged that President Barack Obama’s recent announcement that he personally supports same-sex marriages could hurt his popularity this fall among labor leaders and union members.

Professor Jacobson reports on Indiana’s Democrat candidate for US Senate running away from Obama as fast as he can:

If you want a sense of how Obama’s cynical, money-driven gay marriage evolution ploy will play in key states Obama won in 2008, look not only at North Carolina’s vote Tuesday, but also at how fast Joe Donnelly is running away from Obama on the issue[.]

In order for Obama to try to drive a wedge issue in the election cycle, dividing the people instead of uniting them, and in order to get money his campaign desperately needs, Obama is running people off, people Obama needs to vote for him (and for down-ticket races). As Trumka said, Obama will lose some of the blue-collar Union vote because of this. Obama is also in danger of losing a couple points of the black vote, a couple points of the Hispanic vote, and more than a couple points of the Catholic vote. But he made Hollywierd happy enough to open their purses at a 40-grand-a-plate dinner (can anyone say “one percenters”?) immediately after his flip-flop-flip announcement.

Joe Manchin, the Democrat Senator from WV, has already declared that he doesn’t know if he’ll be voting for the Democrat Obama in November or not. Many Democrats are in danger of losing their jobs (and many already have) due to the whole ObamaCare fiasco, so they are busily trying to avoid getting tied to that.

Obama’s driving wedges into the population, alright. And he’s hurting people’s election bids with his purposefully hyper-partisan antics. But what he and all his radical Leftist handlers don’t understand is he’s hurting Democrat election chances and improving Republican election chances.

Keep talking, Baraka, keep talking. The more you talk, the more potential votes you lose.

UPDATE: Remember I said Obama’s most recent homosexual “marriage” gambit will cost him a couple points among the black community? Well, it’s already happening! As RS McCain reports:

Our ‘First Gay President’ Now Losing Support From Black Christian Pastors

Ouch, that’s going to leave a mark“:

A Texas pastor who once led the Southern Baptist Convention in introducing a resolution that recognized Obama’s historic achievement has voiced his displeasure with the president’s support and approval of gays, reports the Associated Baptist Press.

Dwight McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, wrote in a blog on May 9 that Obama’s statement is worthy of incurring wrath of biblical proportions. . . . “President Obama has betrayed the Bible and the Black Church with his endorsement of same-sex marriage. The Bible is crystal clear on this subject. . . . The moral impact of this day and decision is equal to the military impact of al-Queda when they attacked the Twin Towers on 911.

(Hat-tips: News One and Fox Nation.) This is something I think most secularists don’t understand about us “bitter Bible-clingers.” We are People Of The Word, servants redeemed by unmerited grace who therefore owe as a sacred obligation the duty to defend the Word.

RS McCain has it right. Christians (true Christians, not the Leftist false version of Christians) absolutely defend the Word of the Almighty Creator. And black Church-goers most definitely pay attention to their pastors, oftentimes moreso than do white Church-goers. And this is something Barack Obama does not understand, among a great many things Barack Obama does not understand. He doesn’t understand American culture and tradition and religious value, but what he does vaguely understand, that he detests virulently.

Obama has, for many years, acted in a very hyper-partisan manner in the hopes of benefiting himself politically, driving wedges into American society in the hopes of dividing American society so that he can conquer American society. And he is failing miserably because he is constantly misjudging — out of arrogant ignorance — the value structure of We the People. As I have shown above, Obama’s multiple hyper-partisan “divide the public” wedge issues for political gain have been badly mis-aimed. Each wedge issue he throws out cuts out some of the support he previously had, and harms Democrats further down the ticket. “The greatest, wisest President since sliced bread” continues to prove his arrogant ignorance and his narcissistic delusions of grandeur, to not only his own detriment but to the detriment of Democrats as a whole.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey weighs in with news out of Maryland that black Pastors are blasting Obama for Obama’s violation of Providence’s Holy Word, and declaring they will no longer support Obama. Obama’s decision-making skills and divide-and-conquer tactics are proving to be disastrous to himself and to Democrats up and down the ticket.
