For some time now, all Ive been hearing about Bachmann, or Palin is how STUPID they are. And, of course, we were duly informed as to how SMART candidate Obama was. Well, if SMART can put the nation in the situation we find ourselves, perhaps we should investigate the acceptance of contradictions! Our liberal friends have no trouble, it seems, believing syncretic ideas. Liberals exhibit an indisposition to analogies, and fail to recognize contradictions. This, another example, as Coulter points out in her new book, of mob thinking. Le Bon explains that mobs are perfectly capable of holding completely contradictory ideas at the same time, because a crowd will come under the influence of one of the various ideas stored up in its understanding, and is capable of committing the most dissimilar acts. Its complete lack of critical spirit does not allow of its perceiving these as contradictions. Le Bon, The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind, p. 30-31. 1. Imagine a political party holding in high esteem a senator who killed a girl at Chappaquiddick, and then spending the rest of his career telling other people how to live their lives. 2. We have the Democratic Party with a string of presidential candidates who oppose school choice and vouchers while sending their own children to lily-white private schools. 3. Only the Democrat Party could hysterically denounce a Supreme Court nominee for allegedly making unwanted sexual advances in the workplace and then applaud a president who was receiving oral sex from a White House intern. Who else but Dems could oppose Clarence Thomas, and block Supreme Court nominee Douglas Ginsburg (for marijuana use), and then run Bill Clinton for president. 4. How about Democrat senator Hillarys denouncing George Bushs commutation of Scooter Libbys sentence, after her husband sold a pardon to Marc Rich. 5. Only liberals could tolerate a windbag like Al Gore lecturing us about our carbon footprint while he flies his private jet from energy-guzzling mansion to energy-guzzling mansion. 6. After Jared Loughners Tucson shooting spree, to whom did NBC (Meet the Press) [http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vi...table_on_politics_after_tucson_shooting.html], NPR Sharpton: Keep Debate Passionate, Not Poisonous : NPR, CNN and MSNBC turn to interview about how rhetoric can lead to violence? Al Sharpton. The Washington Post even ran an Op-Ed on the shootings by Sharpton.[ http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/01/11/AR2011011104334.html] His rhetoric actually inspired mobs to murder. 7. As late as 2008 Chris Dodd was calling Fannie fundamentally strong, and in good shape, while Barney Frank was labeling Fannie as just fine. See Peter Schweitzer, Architects of Ruin: How Big Government Liberals Wrecked the Global Economy- And How They Will Do It Again If No One Stops Them, p.111-118. So, of course, when the market imploded, who would MSNBC bring on to pronounce that the Republicans did it .? Yep, Barney and Chris. On with Chris Matthews, Olbermann, and Rachel Maddow. 8. How about the Liberal hysteria about the CIA treatment of terrorist detainees at Gitmo, compared with the response to Damian Williams smashing a cinder block on Reginald Dennys head during the LA Riots, causing permanent brain damage, an following it up with a victory dance around Dennys body The L.A. Riots: 15 Years After Rodney King - TIME But Liberal Democrat Maxine Waters defended Williams, saying the anger in my district is a righteous anger and Im just as angry as they are! Chilling Video: Openly Rooting for Revolution, The Left Calls For American Civil Unrest & Riots (Frances Fox Piven, Lib Talkers, Journalists, Van Jones, Rev Wright, English Protest Leader, etc) | Breaking news and opinion on The Blaze One of the torture methods was to place a caterpillar in the cell! http://www.unc.edu/~nahuja/Ahuja - ST Abu Zubaydah.pdf 9. Further Liberal contradictions: a. Champions womens and gay rights but ignores same in Muslim cultures. b. Champions womens rights but ignores same in Bill Clinton. c. Claim it was a vicious slander to be called a communist in the 50s- but didnt see anything wrong with being a communist in the 50s. d. Advocates scientific research and debate, but then declares discussions about evolution and global warming a closed matter. e. Demands clean alternative energy but opposes nuclear power. f. Supports energy from offshore wind farms unless offshore wind farms obscure the view of Cape Cod. g. Despises racial profiling and stereotyping unless a black conservative comes along, and then is labeled unqualified, stupid, a house nigga, an Uncle Tom, Republican lawn jockey, or window dressing. So...maybe one should question who really is SMART and who is really STUPID!
