"Hate" Demands an Interruption . . .
I wasn't going to do it, but I had to. Even though my "vacation" isn't really a pleasure trip (long story), I did intend to ignore politics and current events as much as possible. Well, it wasn't possible. I have to rant.
I've been watching things as the election draws nearer, and we're hearing a lot of caterwauling about "hate" and "ugly politics." Interesting how telling the truth about a candidate or asking legitimate questions gets called "ugly" and a "smear campaign," but what else is new?
Barack Obama's supporters are squealing loudly because questions are being raised about his radical associations. We're raising questions, but how are they acting? Let's review some of the news stories in recent days.
A McCain supporter gets feces thrown in the bed of his truck by an Obama-supporting neighbor. Obama-supporting officials in Missouri threaten people with legal action for raising questions about Obama. Vicious slurs about Sarah Palin's family, including who fathered her children. Officials are forced to investigate alleged ACORN voter registration fraud in several states, while ACORN representatives openly say they're pushing Obama despite their official non-partisan status.
Pro-Obama entertainers vilify, smear, insult, and get outright vulgar -- if not obscene -- toward McCain, Palin and conservatives in general. Christian conservatives especially are on the receiving end of vile attacks.
Who is hating who here? In general, you're not going to find these types of vulgar, hateful, and not to mention false, smears coming from traditional conservatives. The genuine hate and outright vulgarity is coming from the left, in droves.
Make no mistake. They are bound and determined to win this election by hook or by crook. And not only that. They are on a bloodlust for revenge. President Bush's Electoral College win in 2000 has festered and gone to gangrene. The conservative takeover of Congress in 1994 has been festering with them even longer than that.
The left truly believes that they are entitled to power. Deny them that power, and they're angry. Resentful. Vengeful. Outraged. How dare you stand in the way of their Utopian Brave New World?
They view us as the great unwashed. We can't govern ourselves. We need them to govern us, you see. They think -- as does Obama -- that we are hillrod rubes clinging to our faith and our guns.
Our money belongs to them for redistribution as they see fit. They think they have the right to dictate every aspect of our lives and our commerce. They really don't like private enterprise all that much, only as much as it helps to enrich government coffers. The Constitution is an inconvenience unless they can morph what it says like Silly Putty. That's why postmodern concepts of truth are so popular with this crowd.
And they really, REALLY hate traditional, biblical faith. Liberation Theology or liberal "Christianity" they don't mind, because it is no threat to them. Such theology has nothing to say about moral issues such as homosexuality or abortion, other than they are to be celebrated. In fact, both Liberation Theology and liberal "Christianity" are socialist/Marxist-friendly, and are usable as means to an end. The real hardcore leftists (they're basically communists, but we can't say that) consider these fellow-travelers useful idiots. They're usually the first ones shot when the radicals come to power, along with intellectuals and entertainers.
The radical left is intent on doing whatever they have to do to silence, smear and discredit their traditional, conservative opponents once and for all. If Obama wins and the Democrats capture both houses of Congress in sufficient numbers, Katie bar the door. Expect them to crack down on alternate views, talk radio, the Internet, and any other voice that opposes their agenda. No other views are tolerable.
Expect even worse outrages in public schools and universities. You see, you don't have the right to direct your children's upbringing. Your children aren't yours. They're the property of the liberal state. Better teach them and govern them according to orders, or they'll probably be taken away. You might even get sent to mandated re-education yourself. Don't think it can happen? Think "sensitivity training."
You wanted change, America? You're about to get it.
Don't say you weren't warned.
