The Squeaky Wheel of Liberal Rage
Why is it that every time someone of a conservative nature expresses their beliefs, the liberal left goes into a ravenous rage and instigates a witch hunt? Aren’t they the ones who speak of tolerance? Aren’t they the compassionate ones who want us all to sing Kumbaya in a group hug around the campfire? As much as they want to portray themselves as the peaceful protesters who just want a better America, what they really want is an amoral America where conservatives and Christians cannot make them feel the burden of their sins. There is no right or wrong. Only you can set your moral compass.
Phil Robertson, the long bearded matriarch of the Robertson clan on Duck Dynasty, has enraged the left by expressing his Christian beliefs regarding homosexuality and other perversions. According to the left, this is vile hate speech that cannot be tolerated. As a result, A&E has suspended Phil indefinitely. As the saying goes, the squeakiest wheel gets the oil. They are a small minority of the country, but they scream like little girls at the top of their lungs and you’ll do anything to shut them up.
But the father figure of the Duck Dynasty clan is not the first conservative to express negative opinions about amoral behavior. In February of 2012 Rush Limbaugh told his audience that Sandra Fluke wanted tax payers to pay for her birth control because she was going broke paying for it herself. According to Limbaugh, that makes her a slut, a prostitute, because she wants tax payers to pay for her to have sex. The thirty year old professional student testified before Congress that it cost a law student $3,000.00 for birth control, and later admitted she did not know that Target sold the pill for $9.00 a month. She can do enough research to testify before Congress but cannot find the commonly found inexpensive birth control she desperately needs? Limbaugh was, of course, attacked from the left, lost several advertisers who bowed to pressure from the LGBT community, and ended up having to apologize for expressing his honest opinion that Fluke was a slut. MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC covered the story extensively, attacking Limbaugh viciously.
Of course, when, in November of 2013, Martin Bashir attacked Sarah Palin, concluding that someone should defecate in her mouth (how much more disgusting can one get than that?), the liberal media was silent. Not a peep came from them is Sarah’s defense, or even to admonish Bashir for his contemptuous remarks. Only pressure from the right eventually led to Bashir resigning from that insignificant little station known as MSNBC. No loss to them; they’re pretty much at the bottom so their ratings can only go up. But where was NOW? Where was liberal rage for Palin?
You can’t speak of liberal rage without talking about the “War on Women”. Yes, there is such a war, but it is not perpetrated by conservatives as the left would have you believe. I believe they call that projection. If you want to see a war on women, you need only look up attacks on Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Nikki Haley, Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann, or Condoleezza Rice. It is particularly vexing to liberals when an African American woman is a conservative. But any female conservative will do, especially if she is also a woman of faith, as so many conservative women are.
Liberal rage is a fickle thing. They believe in progressivism, another word for socialism. They tell us they want everything in America to be fair for everyone. We are all entitled to an education, a job of our choosing, or to not work if we so choose, a car, housing, and a living wage. It is governments job to ensure we all have those things. If you challenge them to show you how that works economically, they will call you names, tell you that you are a racist, because they really have no idea how to make it work. Either every single liberal in America skipped Economics 101, or they are simply incapable of understanding it. In their minds, this is the height of compassion for their fellow Americans. Except, they aren’t really concerned with all Americans, just the ones who think like they do. If you are a hard worker who has a good work ethic, and subscribes to the founding principles, you do not belong here. You are disrupting the karma of their Utopia.
The Bill of Rights, for a liberal, is the Bill of Entitlements. Make no mistake; if you are a producer, you need to support a non producer. It’s only fair. If you have a moral compass, keep that to yourself. That’s one thing they do not want you to share. If you try to impart your ideas of morality, common sense, or logic, you will enrage liberals everywhere. They will tell you what is acceptable. They can force society to accept the anything goes philosophy but if you want to practice your faith – well, that doesn’t go. So I guess it’s anything but God goes.
As I’ve said before, worldview matters. And there are stark contrasts between the liberal and conservative worldviews.
Life: Disposable, my choice
Liberty: I can do what I want but you can’t
Guns: Only crazy people want guns. Ban them all. Uncle Sam will protect me
Faith: I have faith in government and myself. If you preach morality to me, I will get angry
Economics: Put it all in the kitty and divide it equally. We all deserve to be equal, even if we
don’t equally contribute. Government should provide for us all. Don’t ask me
how.That’s their problem
Free Speech: Say or do anything you want as long as you do not talk about God or morality, or say anything negative about someone I worship, or something I believe in
Capitalism: Only serves the rich and isn’t fair to the poor. Selfish and greedy. No one needs to
make millions or billions of dollars. They should be made to share that with those
Taxes: Government should raise taxes so they have the money to expand social services and
take care of people. I don’t mind paying more. It means I can get more from the
government and I will be sure that I am taken care of, no matter what happens
Charity: That’s what the government is for. They should take more money from the rich and
support causes and services as people need them.
Life: All life is precious and should be protected
Liberty: Just don’t harm others or their property
Guns: It is my right to protect me and mine, from criminals and tyrants alike
Faith: Believe as you will and allow me to do the same
Economics: Free market system. Work hard, keep what you earn. Don’t rely on government, rely on self. Keep government out of the way
Free Speech: We are all free to say what we want to say, even if it is offensive. That doesn’t
mean we should always say it, but we are free to speak our minds even if we look
stupid doing it
Capitalism: What is wrong with greed? Those with marketable products and ideas proffer them to make money, and in doing so they create jobs, which helps people to support their families
Taxes: Everyone has a right to make what they can from their marketable skills or products.
Taxes should be minimal and everyone should pay the same percentage of their income.
Taxes should be used only for minimal government, not for extensive social programs
Charity: Local charities allow me to choose what I want to support with the money I earned.
Government should not be able to force me to pay into things I am morally opposed to
or do not want to support.
Logic is elusive to the liberal mind. They have no idea how to achieve their goals, just that they want them achieved. To present facts or logic to them is to invite an argument. Liberals are angry ALL THE TIME.
