Posted on 03/08/2012 5:06:07 AM PST by scottfactor
Because it is so predictable, by now we should not be stunned by the stunning hypocrisy of the Left, but it is still tough not to be. One way to get your mind around it is to remember that the whole ideology and political existence of members of the communist Left are based on lies. They not only live on lies, lies are essential for their political survival.
Let me explain why I call these people the communist Left or communist Democrats (and this also includes some who are fake Republicans). The very foundation of the Lefts platform is an ever-expanding, all-powerful government and police state. The Left wants nothing more than to control every aspect of our lives, our means of production, our food and water supply, our financial sector, our money and our speecheverything. They want to be able to dictate to us how much energy we may use, how much of our earned money we may keep, how much and what kinds of foods we may eat, and essentially, how we are to live our lives. That program is the very definition of communism. These leftists are communists, period.
They cannot be honest about this, because right-thinking American citizens would reject it. Instead, they have to find increasingly creative and deceptive ways to disguise their intentions. They have to lie, and they have to demonize those who are wise to their intentions and who expose the truth of their evil agenda.
Thus we see their stunning hypocrisy on display daily. The latest, biggest example is the Lefts completely made-up, nonexistent war on women. Those on the Left are desperate to convince the American people that Republicans hate womena stupidly false accusation that reeks of the Lefts desperation. Oh, theyre certainly desperate. The criminal, unconstitutional behavior of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) has proven to be an amazing wake-up call to millions of sleeping Americans, and we are staying wide awake.
What we are seeing lately is a ramped-up, frenzied effort by the communist Left to silence those prominent voices of conservatism that tell the plain truth about the Lefts evil designs. Rush Limbaugh has always been a major target, and this past week, Rush gave the Left just enough ammo against him to launch an outrageous campaign against his advertisers.
This brings me back to the stunning hypocrisy of the Left. Rush slipped up when he called Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute. He admitted that even though he was trying to illustrate the absurdity of Flukes claims by using exaggeration and absurdity, he chose his words poorly. He said that he descended to the level of the Left, and that he knows better. Okay, fine. He apologized. End of story, right? Wrong.
With feigned outrage, the hypocritical Left went berserk screeching and squealing about what a woman-hater Rush isa demonstrably false accusation, of course. Anyone who bothers to listen to Rush for any given amount of time knows full well that he has a great deal of love for America and the American people, and that includes women. But, that is not the point with the Left. They lie, and they lie all the time.
In our world, a sickening double standard exists that we have learned to expect. That does not make it easier to encounter, though, and because it is a given, that does not mean we should leave off putting the Lefts shameful hypocrisy on display.
We see the Left, in a campaign led by Media Matters and other radical leftist groups, whipping their followers into a mania of feigned outrage at Rushs characterization of Sandra Fluke. They are behaving like rabid weasels over this insult in which Rush was telling the truth about Flukes motives, even though he could have dispensed with the inflammatory descriptions of her.
So, where was the outrage when leftist talkers and television personalities have called Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann the worst names imaginable? As Michelle Malkin points out in her column from Wednesday, there actually is a war on women, but its a war on conservative women, and it is a vile one.
Her piece is loaded with numerous examples of the most hellish hatred from the Left.
She opens her column,
Im sorry Rush Limbaugh called 30-year-old Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a 'slut.' Shes really just another professional femme-a-gogue helping to manufacture a false narrative about the GOP 'war on women.' Im sorry the civility police now have an opening to demonize the entire right based on one radio comment because its the progressive left in this country that has viciously and systematically slimed female conservatives for their beliefs.
We have the well-worn battle scars to prove it. And no, we dont need coddling phone calls from the pandering president of the United States to convince us to stand up and fight.
At his first press conference of the year on Tuesday, the Nations Concern Troll explained that he phoned Fluke to send a message to his daughters and all women that they shouldnt be 'attacked or called horrible names because they are being good citizens.' After inserting himself into the fray and dragging Sasha and Malia into the debate, Obama then told a reporter he 'didnt want to get into the business of arbitrating' language and civility. Too late, pal.
The fact is, 'slut' is one of the nicer things Ive been called over 20 years of public life.
She goes on to list some of those things, and yes, they do make slut look tame by comparison.
Of course, it is not just a leftist war on conservative women; conservative men are fair game, too. Speaking of Rush, how can we forget, that detestable, hideous woman of whom I had never heard until she made the sickest of comments about Rush Limbaugh. She was the black comedienne, Wanda Sykes, who, back in 2009, a few months after Obama began his term, cracked a set of jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner, at which Obama was present, in which she wished for Rush to die from failing kidneys. Obama laughed.
In an opinion piece at that time, posted at PJ Media, Leon de Winter wrote,
"Wanda Sykes isnt of any interest to me. The fact that the American president was five feet away from her and had to laugh about her joke was of interest. A comedian wishes a citizen dead and the president laughs?
The president didnt have the guts to leave, to correct Ms. Sykes, or to express his opposition. He laughed because he apparently was entertained by the idea offered by Sykes, that this critic, a right-wing radio host who openly disagrees with the presidents plans, would die because of failing kidneys.
Afterwards, the president and his wife congratulated Sykes for her jokes. It seems plausible that he still doesnt understand that what he did was appalling and disgusting.
... The level of hatred directed against Limbaugh is so intense among certain groups in American society especially among the left-wing intelligentsia which considers itself superior in morals, ethics, and eating habits that a death wish didnt raise eyebrows among the events attendees. Not hating Rush Limbaugh means you are not really progressive and open-minded, liberal and PC. They ritually hanged him. And the president observed it and laughed along with the excited crowd of media-apparatchiks."
That is far from the only time leftist celebrities and talk show hosts have expressed death wishes for high-profile conservatives, and we hear not even a peep of objection from the mangy rats in the media. For a little refresher on the bile that comes out of the mouths of those on the communist Left, you can read Michelle Malkins column and another piece I found at the American Spectator for some truly cringe-inducing, actual hate speech.
All that has happened this past week with the phony uproar over Rushs one little verbal slip-up is that he has managed to once again bring out the glaring, almost criminal hypocrisy of the Left, which is so very desperate to get Rush silenced.
But, its not going to work. In fact, I know Rush and his program will emerge even stronger and with a whole lot of brand new listeners and fresh advertisers. He is already getting new advertisers signed on to take the place of the cowardly ones that fled at the first few phone calls and emails from paid Media Matters hacks and their buddies.
Now, Rush says that a couple of those advertisers are already regretting their decision and want to come back. That ol suddenly-plummeting stock has a way of speaking much more loudly than a bunch of loud-mouthed, leftist college punks sitting at a communist foundation phone bank. I would tell those wishy-washy advertisers (especially those with ties to George Soros organizations) to take a hike, thank you! There are plenty more good advertisers just a-hankerin to buy ads on Rush Limbaughs show.
Conservatives play into their hands when they accept this "Limbaugh was wrong but at least he apologized" nonsense. Limbaugh was NOT wrong! Maybe he was crude and offensive, but his characterizations of Ms. Fluke as a "slut" and a "prostitute" were accurate.
We need to quit apologizing for stating the truth. In fact, that is our only salvation. Let the Left equivocate; let us be the voice of (sometimes uncomfortable) reason. And let us not be timid about our allegiance to the facts.
Nice article. There is a way to beat this, but it does require some radicalism on the part of everyday Americans.
Go after the MSM. That’s right. Take Alinsky’s playbook and use it against the MSM. The protests, demonstrations, polarizing of a personality. What we want to do is turn the media into bullies and criminals.
Give them a name and keep using it until it sticks. Let other people know. “MSM” is trash. In every conversation I have with friends I call them “Mediacrats.” My friends are picking up on it and are now using the term.
Write letters to the editor accusing the “Mediacrats” of bias towards their benefactors in the DNC. Go to a demonstration and bring placards with “Communists for Obama” and “Mediacrats for Obama.”
Visuals say it best. Everytime someone is at an event with a microphone, say Mediacrat. Overwhelm the reporter. Overwhelm the media.
Put 5,000 people in Maddows front yard with signs accusing her of being a mediacrat. Then get it up on YouTube ans send it viral.
That, people is how you win this war.
There is no double standard, and the Left is innocent of hypocrisy.
The Left are engaged in a war to destroy America and to enthrone perversion, and Rush is not.
These constant complaints about a supposed "double standard" amaze me.
The Left has a single standard: If it is for the Revolution, and weakens America, it is good. If it is against the Revolution, and supports America, it is bad.
Maher and Schultz are foot soldiers in the transnationalist war to destroy America. THAT'S the difference between them and Rush. They are not hypocrites. They are soldiers in a war that we are not yet fighting.
MOST EXCELLENT SUGGESTION! Where do we start?
> In every conversation I have with friends I call them

> using the term.
Two of the largest news agencies in Russia are Pravda, which means “Truth”, and Isvestia, which means “News”.
The Russians have a saying using the names of these “news” agencies in a pun.
“In the Truth there is no News, and in the News there is no Truth.”
I’d say that fits very well for the MSM here in the States.
I wonder if anyone ever follows these reporters around to see what THEY do on their spare time?
The United States has not been in such danger since the Civil War, if then.
During World Wars I and II, the enemy was without and the moral fiber and resolve of the American people adamantine.
Today the enemy is within. It is the deadly affliction of decadence--the destroyer of civilizations.
American decadence burst into the open in the 1960s as the counter-culture movement. Today it afflicts a huge segment of the population, including those who control the Federal Government, universities, the press, and Hollywood. Many Americans, especially those living in areas in which the decadence is deeply rooted, find it impossible to resist it.
Embedded deep within it are a national death wish and a fifth column, at least partly under foreign control, whose objective is the destruction of the United States.
The worst of it is that millions of Americans either can not or will not recognize this decadence for what it is and therefore cannot comprehend the danger and take meaningful action.
This dooms us all, and it also dooms the United States, the American Dream, and the American experiment--unless there are enough of us to rescue them.
God help us!
I prefer Presstitutes or Whorenalistsbut that's just me
That's because most decent people were raised with the rule of never discussing politics or religion in a social setting. As a result, the only people speaking out in public are the "progressives" while the more polite folks stare at them in silence. We have to start speaking out against their lies and in doing so, we'll be educating the clueless.
Your post jarred me a bit. I'm going to have to re-evaluate my behavior.

You are right and we are in a heap of trouble.
The left loves its sluts. Just don’t call ‘em that. It’s ok for one of the largest financial institutions on the planet to promote the on-stage cavorting of that Patroness of Sluts, “madonna”, I suppose because they make money off of it — pimping, I think it’s called.
The U.S.A. and the American people have never been in greater danger.
And millions of Americans are apparently oblivious to it. Their willful ignorance--which is hubris and denial--is the greatest danger of all.
Soccer moms and dads are asleep.
Welfare moms and dads are content.
Everyone thinks this is same old/same old.
Very few understand the underlying war that is going on and when you try to point it out to them you are met with blank stares or worse, ‘don’t rock the boat’ attitudes.
We are a nation of good hearted people doing nothing in the face of evil. Heck, most of them refuse to acknowledge evil.
Stand up. Speak up. One person at a time if that’s what it takes. Adopt a clueless person (or two) and clue them in.
Yes, the Left is certainly in full revolution mode. Why we use the term "double standard" is simply because it is true, in the sense that the Left has two ways it treats a "single" thing-in this case name-calling. Rush says slut. Maher says slut. The Left has two different ways of treating the two men--that is still a double standard, even though it is most certainly part of their evil revolution.
How very true, how very true.
We have to get smarter as conservatives. Whenever the left rolls out a new victim, a new “expert” in this or that field, whenever they attempt to use some horrific event that happened to this “poor” person because of the failure of government or evil Republican, we need to shut our mouths, not respond and do our homework.
In less than 4 hours, Fluke could have been vetted thoroughly. Rush could have gone on the radio and blasted the Dems for lying to America, for wasting tax dollars on their set-up and demanded they apologize to the American people for their deception.
Conservative websites should have been running Flukes real age, her profiles where she openly discusses her associations with overt radicalism and outed her for the fake she is.
Instead of going on the defensive and running our mouths further forcing apologies, we should have been putting the Dems in the position of having to apologize to the American people for their deception. We either rewrite that playbook to our advantage or accept the left will own public sentiment for generations to come.
If there is a silver-lining to Breitbart’s passing is he left us with the platform and handbook to go after the left and to win against them. When we use the lefts playbook we loose. We only need courage and conviction to do what Andrew did and we no longer lose in the battle of ideals.
