If You Can Believe It...

I just read Michelle Malkin's latest entry and I'm sick.

What kind and generous Lefties. How tolerant and diverse.

The Klan puts less pressure on minorities than they do.

So let me get this straight. A successful minority is a whore? A minority who advocates self-reliance instead of government handouts is a prostitute? A minority who wants to preserve the system that makes this possible should "go back to the massage parlor" and "sucky sucky long time?"

Voting for Kerry doesn't give anyone the right make racial slurs. Being an atheist doesn't give you leave to blur the lines between right and wrong. Just because no one can hold you to a specific moral code, doesn't exempt you from decency.

You'd think the sheer hypocrisy would be some kind of deterrent. But apparantly consistency is lost on this specific type of air-wasting scum.

Obviously the subject is of interest to Jethro and I. Ask Jethro's family. It wasn't government entitlement programs that moved them out of the slums. It wasn't even the charity of the Southern Baptists who sponsored their move to America. It was constant hard work, minumum wage paying jobs, reusing tin-foil, and never buying paper towels or eating in restaurants. Just like my immigrant ancestors did so that their children would not have to know the same.

Things like this exist all over. It sucks. You can only do what you can do and teach your kids right from wrong and hope it sticks.

Missed you, Z.

I don't know why the liberal's are unloading on her (it's too much for my brain today). But isn't funny how the group that preaches peace, tolerance and equality more than any other group in this country are the first ones to strike out at anyone who disagrees with them. And the level they stooped to is below anything I've ever done.

Didn't their mothers ever teach them that if they didn't have something nice to say, they shouldn't say it at all? I am all for the open exchange of ideas and political thoughts, but not a single hate email she listed made a point or even tried to appear literate. They probably couldn't gather their thoughts into an intelligent format; therefore, they had to rant and rave using nasty words and slang terms instead of proper English.

No, no people. It's okay to be racist when them uppity coloreds start gettin' high falutin' ideas like working.

A buildup like that doesn't exactly make me want to rush right over there and read the article, but I'll weigh in anyway. You can't force your ethics on anyone else, especially a work-ethic.

`Fess up. How much did the Republican party pay you to post this conservative leaning blog-entry?

Tiny - Sorry. If my work-ethic was forced on everyone, the country would implode.

Gooch - The same amount the Democrat party is paying you to ask such a question.

Maybe it's because of how I was raised, maybe it's the coutry I was raised in, but in any case, I have never looked at a person and seen their race/ethnicity/religion, however I'm not ignorant to the problems going on around me. I hate hatred... wow that sounds like a stupid statement... I just don't understand how people can say that one "kind" of person is different then any others, we are all humans aren't we?

I was raised similarly. It just goes to show that political extremism leads to insults and racism no matter what side of the aisle you're on. And that closed-mindedness is not exclusive to the Right.

Zelda,

Judging by your writing, you're obviously a smart person and I trust that you would not assume that the racist and stupid comments made to Malkin actually represent the progressive or liberal agenda. Hatred and idiocy span political borders.

Kiss kiss,
Your token liberal

Mike - I don't, but I do think there is a double standard when it comes to the racism of the left. Somehow it is more excusable than racism from the Right, at least minds of the small-minded morons who subscribe to it.

I guess they're trying to tell Ms. Malkin what they think the Republicans ought to be telling her.

You'd be hard pressed to find a credible liberal who excuses the racism seen on Malkin's blog. I suspect they'd react just like I did, stunned that anyone would bother to write that crap.

I agree, but again, I think there is a double standard, and a bit of denial on the part of slightly more sane liberals. I am frequently called a racist because I believe in the fair tax. What one has to do with the other is beyond me, but given my marital status, it's hard to make it stick.

A friend of mind was counter-demonstrating at an anti-war protest. He is black and a teacher at an inner city middle school. He is in favor of a school voucher program, and was carrying a sign to that effect. The "pacifists" ripped his sign out of his hands, destroyed it, and called him a racist, among other more colorful things. I have it on tape, and it's disgraceful.

Zelda,

It appears that you're quite politically active (joining political groups, attending demonstrations, etc). That's commendable and makes me feel like the lazy ass that I am. However, I think you'll find that the liberals that you encounter in these situations are the most passionate version. You'll find the smartest and best of the group alongside the most idiotic and angry ones. Some folks are attending these events because their emotions have overpowered their limited intelllect.

Anyway, if your point is that it's more common for the racist tag to be applied to conservatives and that's not fair, then allow me to speak for liberals everywhere and say that I agree. There's a stereotype of the Southern conservative, waving the confederate flag, and looking to string up some "darkies". It's not really fair.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks, I know it isn't fair. But unfortunately, you can't speak for liberals everywhere because there are many who share your agenda point for point, yet cling desperately to the stereotype because it gives them clout with minorities.

The Democrats need them if they are to remain a viable party, and they've been promising 40 acres and a mule since the LBJ administration. But the Repubs don't need the minority vote, but they do want it, hence the hysterical race-baiting from the left. The results of this one-party system for minorities will be underrepresentation and isolation if they can't work through their own stereotypes and stake a claim in the Republican Party.

Jeth and I are working feverishly to that end, and I would say that it is one of our first political priorities.
