Over at one of my favorite blogs, IMAO, there was a post concerning a new poster that has cropped up in San Franny featuring Sarah Palin. While the poster is lame, uninspired and too wordy, the artist apparently posted a screed that just got my engines turning. I felt that some of his claims needed to be addressed as an intellectual exercise. Apparently we on the right don’t get enough of that kind of exercise. At least that’s what the artist claims.
It is an eternal principle that there will always be those who follow the destroyer. They seek to denigrate man and make him little more than the animals, or in the case of the left in this country, below the animals. These people look for anything virtuous, lovely, of good report or praise worthy and seek to destroy it.
I do however love the out and out hypocrisy of his manifesto. So lets examine his claims one by one shall we ( I know, I know but indulge me. I ‘ve had a really lousy week).
We’re dumb? Most of us, at least on the right are either employed or employable, and we didn’t vote for “the man who would be king”
We’re big? Hello Michael Moore and Roseann Barr and Rosie O’donnell …………
We’re white? Guess again, conservatives come in all sizes, shapes and colors. Except dirty hippy and smelly radical
We drink beer and watch the NFL? Wow, 300+ channels and that’s the worst you could come up with. It’s a shame libs don’t watch TV. They could tune into the History channel and maybe catch a clue.
We over consume and under achieve? So what you’re actually saying is we power the economy and it seems to me that the left in their four years ( until now) of holding the White House and Congress only managed to pass the most expensive, job debilitating boondoggle in recent history. Other than that the economy has tanked, the terrorist are still free and Gitmo’s still open.
We think we are this nation? We don’t think we are, we know we are. Who defends it? Who believes in the Constitution? Who lives it’s basic principles? The left? Please don’t be obtuse. And yes those who protect, defend and believe in this nation are heir to it, that’s how it works. The left are heirs to chaos, destruction and anarchy because that is what the promote, seek and worship.
We’ve traded our legacy for fear and complacency? Really. Now that the right is standing up and fighting for our very existence, suddenly, we’re fear mongers. Now that we’ve learned our lessons from the left, hyperbole is unacceptable. I remember “conservatives want to starve school children” and ” conservatives want poor people and senior citizens to die”, but that’s not fear mongering, right. Speak truth to power ( of course that makes statement makes no sense but our intellectual betters can’t be bothered to speak english properly, they’re too busy saving the Snail Darter).
We distrust intellectuals and aspire to stagnation? Well ok. We distrust some intellectuals. We distrust those who lie to further their agenda. We distrust those who never leave their ivory towers and mingle with the rabble, except for junkets to third world dig sites.
We distrust those who manipulate data for their own personal gain. We distrust those who place reputation over facts. Who comes to mind here? Ah yes, Ward Churchill, Global Warming Scientists, Barak Obama, Keith Olberman, Sean Penn (I know but he thinks he’s smarter than everyone else so I’m counting him -it’s my post) and Al Gore the smartest man on the planet.
Last but not least, no we don’t seek stagnation. We also don’t see any need to change something that isn’t broken. This nation has stood for that last 200+ years as an example to the world. A free country. A democracy. A place where anyone, even an incompetent poser can become president. If it wasn’t Barak Hussien Obama would be flipping burgers at McDonalds or greeting people at WalMart.
So as usual the liberal has no leg to stand on, no real basis of fact and no argument of substance.
But then when have they ever let that stop them in the past. Sigh.
