Anyone Still Believe The Liberal Propaganda About Being For The People?

Liberalism is about to finally die in America. After years of the GOP and the ‘true conservatives’ falling into paralysis and snarking at the middle of America, the Dems got a chance to back up all their rhetoric about being for the average American. And they have completely blow it in less than two years.

Forget about allowing oil & gas prices to rise to curb consumption (and American’s freedom to travel), forget about fighting to surrender Iraq to al-Qaeda so they could use the money on more failed social experiments. Forget about promising to invest their time and effort into investigating their political enemies, none of which have anything to do about standing up for average Americans.

No, all those acts of idiocy only led the left down the path to utter destruction, but the final nail in the proverbial coffin was attacking the symbol of average: Sarah Palin and her family. When that happened the facade was torn from the left and the real deal was exposed – and it is as ugly as it is condescending an arrogant. And it has the last of the true believers confused and frustrated. Here is one of the last of the gullible fools who believes in the liberal left’s facade, begging them to be rational (i.e., not be themselves):

This article is not the first to note the cultural contradiction in American liberalism, but just now the point bears restating. The election may turn on it.

Democrats speak up for the less prosperous; they have well-intentioned policies to help them; they are disturbed by inequality, and want to do something about it. Their concern is real and admirable. The trouble is, they lack respect for the objects of their solicitude. Their sympathy comes mixed with disdain, and even contempt.

Democrats regard their policies as self-evidently in the interests of the US working and middle classes. Yet those wide segments of US society keep helping to elect Republican presidents. How is one to account for this? Are those people idiots? Frankly, yes – or so many liberals are driven to conclude. Either that or bigots, clinging to guns, God and white supremacy; or else pathetic dupes, ever at the disposal of Republican strategists. If they only had the brains to vote in their interests, Democrats think, the party would never be out of power. But again and again, the Republicans tell their lies, and those stupid damned voters buy it.

Actually, liberals in power couldn’t give a fig about Americans, they find them repulsive and below their station. I feel sorry for this person, he actually thinks liberals want to stop, want to be altruistic, want to be Americans. Yeah, right. Here is a real liberal, exposed to the world:

I recognize that psychological analysis of politics is usually not welcome by the public, but I believe such a perspective can be helpful here to understand Palin’s message. In her acceptance speech Gov. Palin sent a rousing call to those who want to celebrate their resistance to change and a higher vision.

Look at what she stands for:

  • Small town values — a denial of America’s global role, a return to petty, small-minded parochialism.
  • Ignorance of world affairs — a repudiation of the need to repair America’s image abroad.
  • Family values — a code for walling out anybody who makes a claim for social justice. Such strangers, being outside the family, don’t need to be heeded.
  • Rigid stands on guns and abortion — a scornful repudiation that these issues can be negotiated with those who disagree.
  • Patriotism — the usual fallback in a failed war.
  • “Reform” — an italicized term, since in addition to cleaning out corruption and excessive spending, one also throws out anyone who doesn’t fit your ideology.

Emphasis mine. Higher vision? Dude, what you been smoking? You’re high all right.

You will find in life this kind of arrogance is simply a band-aid covering a very emotionally insecure idiot. Small towns do not equate to inbred, untravelled, inexperienced and uneducated people. Small towns are where people go when they cannot stand the big cities and their plethora of idiots telling everyone else how to live their lives. Small towns are where you get back to nature.

I truly feel for those who still believe the self delusional lies the liberals spout because they need to be heroes to others. They desperately need to be heroes, but they are afraid. For example, instead of fighting al-Qaeda they fight those who are fighting al-Qaeda (probably because deep down they know those on the front lines are overshadowing them).

That is why Obama doesn’t compare to McCain or Palin in the backbone arena. He is a follower trying to be a leader. From what I hear that will be evident in the last portions of the interview with O’Reilly tonight and tomorrow night. Palin shows what it means to be a strong, unbending American of the highest quality when she stands up to the snobbery and power of those who have money, but not souls. Palin is the real deal, and the liberal movement (and the Democrat Party) have decided it is a fight to the finish over her ascendency in American Politics.

To the end then. The sooner we bury liberalism the better.

Update: Bill Kirstol notes another great example of lunatic liberalism covering its insecurity complex with hate of the masses:

Thus Martin Peretz, editor-in-chief of the venerable New Republic for the last 34 years, wrote a blog post Thursday while he was “still reeling from last night’s malign hysteria at the Republican convention. This is a rotten crowd, even the pious Christian Huckabee and certainly Mayor Giuliani and the aspiring vice president, Sarah Palin.”

Despite reeling from the speeches, Peretz was able to “give [Palin] her due: she is pretty like a cosmetics saleswoman at Macy’s.” He continued that it was “good to see that the Palin family didn’t torture poor Bristol, at least in the open.” And he concluded: “Yes, please God, do bless America and rescue us from these swilly people.”

No malign hysteria there.

It is an easy step to help these people out. Simply remove them from the political discourse of this nation and they won’t have to be bothered – and neither will we!

Update: When I saw Piper Palin fixing young Trig Palin’s hair at the GOP convention I thought to myself there is John and Caroline Kennedy all over again.

How little did I understand the venom and condescension from the liberal news media who seemed to find this touching moment abhorrent?

In the press galleries at the convention, journalists wrinkled their noses in disgust when Piper, Ms. Palin’s youngest daughter, was filmed kitty-licking her baby brother’s hair into place. But to many Americans — including some I talked to in the convention hall — that looked like family church on Sunday, evidence of good breeding and sibling regard.

That we all are finally realizing that funky smell from DC is the rot of the Political Industrial Complex. We clearly need to drain the swamp there.

    Another great post, AJ. Just found another very interesting article which has a similar theme – why Sarah Palin is such an existential threat to the liberal world view. Given the nature of the threat to their views, they have no choice but to react with absolute hatred and revulsion towards her, even though it shows their hatred and revulsion of every day American voters.

    Also contains a very good analysis of John McCain’s strategic planning for this campaign.

    “Many argued that McCain took an unnecessary gamble by placing such an enormous burden on her shoulders. Yet the fact is that McCain no doubt knew precisely what her capabilities are as a speaker. Unlike the media, he claims that he has been watching her political rise for years. He knew that she was capable of rising to the challenge. Far from a gamble, his move was a stroke of brilliance that showed an acute understanding of who Palin is, how he himself is perceived, and what motivates both the media and his own party base.”

    Kind of long, but well worth a read.

    They treat Sarah Palin with the same distain as George W. Bush, for the same reasons. Beating up on a woman brings their thuggery in to focus.

    There are no big fields of easily accessible sweet light crude left to be found in the US, we used it all up. You can be sure if there were we would have seen oil companies demanding access to that acreage over the last twenty years instead of sinking billions into sour, hard to refine tar sands in Alberta and one sided deals with Venezuela, and countries in the Middle East and Russian dominated Central Asia.

    The areas put off limits by the moratorium on the Outer Continental Shelf contain about 18 billion barrels of oil according to the Interior Dept. That comes to about 900 days – less than 2-1/2 years of US consumption at 2007 rates.

    We can “drill baby drill” off every tourist beach in the country, in Dick Cheney’s backyard and 30′ off the dock of the Bush Estate in Kennebunkport but all that’ll do is allow the Russians and Saudis to tell us where and when our military can fight in 10 years. F-22s and M1A2 tanks don’t run on ethanol.

    Shortsighted Republican politicians are peddling nonsense and ought to be thrown out of office, not rewarded for misleading us.

    Sure just let every other country with the ability to off shore drill drink our milk shake right? After all the oil deposits stop right at the edge of our exclusive economic zone, but not out into the continental shelf under international waters? Genius, genius I say, you deserve an award! And no our military doesn’t run on ethanol just like the left screams it runs on blood for oil, so duh, what does it matter to you and your screaming baboon friends if we use up all the oil. We’ll just invade another country and take their oil, just like we did with Iraq. We did take Iraq’s oil right? Come on Texas oil cowboy didn’t take all the oil, get real, the CIA must have secret black op’s wells all over Iraq, yeah that’s it. Use a straw when you drink your kool-aide, you’re spilling crazy all over the place.
