For your consideration
Okay, back to your regularly scheduled blogging. I posted this comment on Conservative Underground and thought I'd share it with ya'll for your consideration. If you have time, read the whole thread - it's pretty interesting.
It all started with one of the members posing a question in regards to liberal hypocrisy - one which this poster asked some of the liberal members of the site to comment on. Here are my thoughts:
I've given up trying to understand their hypocrisy. Know how they screech and caterwaul for gay rights and have their "pride" marches and whatnot? Yet when a reporter has the nerve to not criticize the White House, instead - gasp! - agrees with the President, they dig around and find out that this particular reporter is GAY! GAY, I tell you. He's an awful person - he's GAY! I scratched my head about that one for a long, long few minutes. Remember how it was a big deal that Dick Cheney's daughter was a lesbian? If it was Chelsea Clinton that was a lesbian I'd bet my salary that there would be parades in her honor for being "courageous" and an "icon".
It's celebrated and trendy to be a Kabbalahist (or whatever they're called) or a Yogi or an atheist or a Christian Scientist. But heaven forbid if you're a Christian. They celebrate pagan religions and fight like hell to get these religions "accepted" and keep followers of these religions from being "offended" by our nativity scenes and displays of the Ten Commandments, but when Christians are discriminated against and laughed at? We're expected to just grin and bear it. Christians are murdered all over the globe and nobody cares. But they'll wear t-shirts celebrating Communist dictators.
It's a crime to kill a baby in utero - unless we call it "abortion". Scott Peterson was convicted of TWO counts of murder. Shouldn't that make someone stop and think about that? A boy beats his pregnant girlfriend's belly with a bat (at her request) and induces a miscarriage. He was convicted of murder. If that same baby at the same gestational age had been sucked out by a vacuum and dismembered under a "doctor's" supervision it would have been not only LEGAL but considered her "choice". I've been waiting a long time for an explanation on THAT topic...
Don't get me started on the Democrat politicians who have been impeached and yet are still celebrated. The Democrat politicians who are murderers yet nobody holds them responsible. Ex-Klan members who are given credibility by a party that calls themselves "tolerant" - and yet we're the racists? We have a Republican president who has appointed more minorities to high-profile positions than any other, yet he and his appointees are ridiculed, not commended. If a Democrat president did the same, he/she would be celebrated and worshipped.
How about all the women who have been freed from abuse and oppresion in Afghanistan? All the Iraqi women who are free from fear of being murdered, raped and tortured? Are the liberal feminist groups applauding Dubya for this? Nope.
It's schitzophrenic and I've given up trying to understand it all.
What do you think?
