Skip to comments.The Insanity of the Left!

On the heels of the Republican National Convention you might expect this column to be about the highlights of that convention. You might expect it to contain praise for the tremendous speeches delivered by First Lady Laura Bush, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vice-President Dick Cheney, President Bush, or even Senator Zell Miller, whose speech was by far the best of them all.
Yes you might expect those items to be covered here but they will only be mentioned in passing. Why? Simply put there is a much more telling phenomenon occurring right now. This phenomenon revolves around how the Democratic Party is imploding. And surely this is most telling where the presidential election is concerned.
The presidential aspirations of Senator John Kerry are beginning to slip slowly away and his supporters are beginning to show the sure signs of stress and outright panic. And as we Conservatives are very well aware Liberals are apt to say and do the craziest things when they feel things are going against them. These days, my friends those on the far-left are saying some absolutely insane things and those things need to be told.
Some very good examples could of course be found among the wacky protesters who were all too present in New York during the Republican Convention. There were throw backs to the hippy days of Woodstock, there were people stripping naked to stop the war in Iraq. And might I ask why are those who strip at these things always the ones who most need to keep their clothes on? If there is going to be stripping involved in a protest let them hire Halle Berry or Salma Hayeck for goodness sake.
There were people protesting everything and anything. Tens-of-thousands of clueless folks carrying signs and shouting silly slogans and generally making complete fools of themselves. But we all expected these folks to come out of the woodwork didnt we? These are the same radicals who break out their signs and chants every time a Republican president takes any type of stand. And to be frank no one takes them seriously.
Oh but the more mainstream Democratic supporters are beginning to act like these protesters however. It is becoming rather difficult to tell where the nuts end an the sane folks begin in the Democratic Party.
Consider the remarks made at a recent National Organization for Women rally in New York for instance. The rally, named Code Red: Stop The Bush Agenda Rally, was held in Central Park and featured some of the most incredibly inane things you will ever hear.
U.S. Rep. Major Owens went off the deep end declaring that George W. Bush was taking America into a snake-pit of fascism. Owens also said the Bush administration spits on Democracy. But he did not stop his idiocy there though my friends.
Owens went on to say that Bush stole the 2000 election and would surely steal this one as well. Do these people ever get over their rage and sore loser attitudes? Owens had still more to say adding this jewel of irrationality. The Bush administration is bringing tremendous sums of money and power to bear on our media systems, our communication systems, and they are going to force people to vote-- put people into a state of confusion where they vote against their own interest. Got that? President Bush is forcing Americans to vote now! Can the black helicopters be far behind?
Owens was not alone in his raving however. Poet Molly Birnbaum read one of her poems to the crowd. Imagine a way to erase that night four years ago when you (President Bush) savagely raped every pandemic woman over and over with each vote you got, a thrust with each state you stole. A smack with each bill you passed, a tear with each right you took until you left me disenfranchised with my hands shackled and my voice restrained. So now Bush getting votes is equal to rape? And certainly Ms. Birnbaum had no problem spewing her venomous ramblings despite her claim that Bush had stolen her rights.
Birnbaum was followed by Gina Young, a singer who sang to the crowd her song of protest against George Bush. I got better grades than you, you stupid boy W. Your dad was a killer too, and you know that nobody voted for you. Youngs song goes downhill from there and the lowlight comes when she calls President Bush a bastard. Such eloquence.
Then another poet, Ann Chin, took the stage and added her hatred to the bigotry fest. Chin expressed a desire that her message would frighten President Bush and make him cower in fear. I want to be that voice that makes George Bush so scared he hires two butch black bodyguards. Again such intellectual depth from these fanatics.
And of course these leftists had their trusty signs declaring slogans like Keep your politics out of my vagina and Keep you God out of my government, keep your laws off my body and the ever popular War is not pro-life.
The lunacy offered up shows just how delusional the far-left is in America, and sadly it also shows how much of the Democratic Party is represented by these folks and their senseless ramblings. The Democratic Party is angry and they are showing it my friends. They can sense the looming election disaster for Kerry and considering the remarks coming from these folks a Kerry loss will be a great blessing for America.
Most excellent...and oh so true.
It is fun watching the wheels come off.
Anyone know what a "pandemic woman" is?
Good column -- of course he had a wealth of material to choose from!
I think he means every woman in general...
"A pandemic woman in every pot" - DNC slogan
The way to understand the left is to understand that insanity ain't the problem,,,they are communists. Keep that in mind and a lot becomes much more clear.
Pretty much says it all!
"...they are communists. Keep that in mind and a lot becomes much more clear."
Amen brother, and praise be to Arnold for actually calling them, well not commies, but Socialists.
"It is becoming rather difficult to tell where the nuts end an the sane folks begin in the Democratic Party."
I've been thinking that for a few years now - every time Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or Ted Kennedy opens their mouth. And let's not forget those 13 sterling congresspeople who sent the letter to the U.N. asking them to keep our elections from being stolen (like last time, don't you know).
It's always dangerous to try and guess what a liberal means since words have floating definitions in their world, but at a guess, since pandemic means a wide spread epidemic and feminists consider child birth to be a disease, I would guess it refers to any woman who might become pregnant.
But I strongly suspect that these are just two words that this woman thought sounded good together and the combination doesn't have any meaning whatsoever, like the phrase "social justice."
Yes, that's how I always understood it -- more widespread than an epidemic. (Maybe this poet thinks that being a woman is catching?)
But I can't even think of a similar word that this so-called "poet" might have meant.
I think you're onto something -- but even at that, it won't parse. Of course, dealing with people who are flummoxed by "is" . . .
Next up: Violence
In an attempt to complete the picture, the end game of the left's strategy will be to insight real violence. Born and bread campus protesters in dirty underwear will be summoned by great voices to commit the first real unmistakeable American on American terrorist act.
Violence so over the top as to get the attention of the American people. WE WILL BE HEARD. WE WILL GIVE YOU PAUSE. YOU WILL CONSIDER OUR OPINION AS WORTHY CONSIDERING THE LENGTHS WE WILL GO TO MAKE IT KNOWN.
Ahh? So that's it.
Look. I'm young and stupid. I am not a spokesman for Freerepublic.com, but I call it as I see it. I hope I'm wrong.
Communist. You're exactly right.
By the way Waco, does the Brazos flow through the place from which you took your name?
If so, I grew up there and my family still lives there. I kept an office in the ALICO building.
Only her analyst knows for sure.
The ideals of the left began their accendancy with the publication of Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto back in the 19th century. The ideas gained ground through most of the 20th century and were considered to be the "wave of the future" and the unavoidable goal of human society. The great, flawed, stupidity of the left began to crash with the candidacy of Goldwater and the resurgence of the libertarian right which would embrace both civil rights and personal freedom.
The great plan of the left has failed and is in the process of decomposing. W is president and will be again. They lost and freedom won. It is the end of over a century of effort and they cannot accept this defeat.
They are likely to do many strange things and they will not accept their defeat anytime soon. This is one of those things that will be settled biologically with the eventual death of the adherents.
