Skip to comments.I Cannot Sit Quietly Any Longer
Posted on 09/09/2005 7:52:48 AM PDT by Chickenhawk Warmonger
I spent most of the day beating my head against a wall. Figuratively speaking that is. I dared respond to website claiming that President Bushs visit to New Orleans delayed delivery of food and disaster supplies. Of course, I countered with the Red Cross being forced to sit on the sidelines by the Louisiana Dept of Homeland Security. Big mistake trying to confront a Liberal with facts is like trying to make Michael Moore stop eating. I ended up in an email duel with someone thats sole purpose in life is to bash President Bush. In my head, I knew it was a lost cause but my heart said, Fight back.
After being blasted with facts from Wikipedia (the online encyclopedia that anyone and their toddler can edit), I gave up. I could only take being told, You probably didnt make it past 8th grade for so long. The old Liberal game of name-calling and insults gave me a stomachache.
After a 30-minute shower and some Mylanta, I began thinking about all of the ridiculous claims and finger pointing that has continued since August 28. So much hate and nastiness while bodies of the poor souls that were unable to escape Hurricane Katrinas wrath floated in the toxic water. It was a morbid undercurrent of disgusting glee from the Liberals maybe all the dead and suffering would finally be President Bushs downfall. It began with Robert Kennedy Jrs bogus rant that President Bushs environmental policies caused the hurricane. And it has gone downhill from there.
Unlike the Republicans from years ago, I cannot be silent any longer. I cannot take this continuous disrespectful, hateful nastiness and vat of lies any more. I could spend the next three days writing individual letters to those that have participated in the dance of glee for the ravages of the hurricane. My anger is much too high to take that length of time to get my message out there. So here goes
I am sick and tired of you on the Left calling MY President names and impugning his integrity. I have had enough of the incessant bleats of selected not elected and not my President. You do not deserve a President that takes his oath of office seriously and puts America first. You do not deserve a President that makes faith a priority in his life. You do not deserve a President that operates from a position of high moral clarity. You deserve a President that thinks only of him and what he can get out of being in the highest office in the land. You deserve a President that has no moral clarity and lies about lies about lies. You deserve a President who thinks that terrorism should take a back seat to his legacy. Wait a minute You had that for 8 years.
I could care less about issues of black and white. In my world, there are no color boundaries. I may not like you but it is not because of your skin color. Playing the race card to such an extent as it has been in the post-Katrina environment is beyond the point of despicable. I am just waiting for one of the African American leaders to lie about an attack on a young black girl by young white men in order to stir the racism pot. Wait a minute that has already happened.
I am disgusted by your lack of integrity. To heck with the truth, you just cant handle it. The truth hurts because it means that President Bush is not a failure. I am surprised that you have not stooped to the level of stealing, forgeries and lies bigger than any fisherman could dream about. I am just waiting for a story to hit the media about someone stuffing top-secret documents in their socks and pants to shift the blame for September 11, 2001 to the Bush Administration. Wait a minute that has already happened.
I am appalled at your blatant hatred of 51% of Americans and America. The name of the game is to get back in power. Bad things happening to Americans are good in a Liberals point of view. More death and destruction means lower approval ratings for the President. I am just waiting for you to convince a grieving mother to defile her sons proud military service by saying that America is not worth dying for. I dread the day that anti-war protestors stage demonstrations with Maimed for a Lie posters outside of Walter Reed Hospital where soldiers are recuperating. What a minute youve already done that.
Nothing you do anymore surprises me. It still makes me sick but the shock value has worn off. It makes me sad to see MY country that I love and support tarnished with the poisonous venom spewed from you. It breaks my heart to hear you claim to support the soldiers while claiming they have murdered thousands of innocent Iraqis. My final words to you should sound familiar they are the same as your darling Teresa Heinz Kerry. Just shove it you idiot scumbags.
Why do you waste your time worrying what 10% think?
I wonder what Lance Armstrong would think about that?
You'll never see it. They'll just change the subject and find some new "high crime".
Unfortunately, don't hold your breath. They deserve all the opprobrium we can muster, but don't expect their "moral clarity" to be confused by facts. Especially not inconvenient facts.
Good rant. But why no cheese after the shower?
I received this email yesterday and thought I would pass it along:
One of the largest storms in history hit New Orleans on Monday. Chaos broke out on Tuesday and Wednesday. There was flooding, small arms fire, looting, massive destruction, loss of all utilities and city services. By Thursday and Friday the situation was being stabilized. By Saturday, law and order had been restored; we were receiving pictures of New Orleans residents bowling in Baton Rouge, being placed on cruise ships, and arriving safely in Houston, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. Ten days later, their children have new clothes, new books, new haircuts, and they are heading for school in Houston. Thousands of responders have secured the city and efforts are underway to re-engineer and permanently improve the city drainage system. Whether you choose to see success or failure here is largely a matter of your personal point of view and a reflection of your level of personal experience. Personally, I think this is an incredible success story, and I believe that the rapid rescue of New Orleans is additional evidence that we live in a great country.
You'll never see it. I saw a black female reporter on TV who started by saying that Bush delayed shipping supplies to NOLA so that blacks would suffer and when the absurdity and baselessnes of that claim was proved she countered that it didn't matter because relief was delayed in getting to these people, for whatever reason. What mattered was that Bush was happy to see blacks suffer!
Actually, that's a good thing. Given you can only be elected to the Office of President twice, then GWB can run again in '08.
Never understood why some freepers quote that drivel of a source either.
On-line discussions are not meant to change the mind of the challenger. On the other hand, he lurkers' minds are changeable.
If a conservative exposes his position with facts and logic, he will be appealing to the large middle of undecided or uninformed lurkers.
I applaud any conservative who takes his time to engage a liberal when such possibility exists. I don't have the patience or the inclination to do it, but I admire the folks who do it.
More like 48% stupidity by the last election and it only takes few more uniformed shep to sway the next election.
If the President won't defend himself, you might as well give it a rest.
I remember when Clinton got his top people gathered around him to tell the nation they each believed he did not have sex with that woman. Each one put his own credibility on the line to stick up for their leader.
I don't hear so much as a cricket from the Bush cabinet. Nobody in Washington besides Laura Bush has spoken up in hearty defense of President Bush.
Like they would ever admit it.
They are wrong so often they have it down to a science.
Throwing smoke bombs like Watergate, and iran contra bla blah, soon youll find yourself trying to correct so many factual errors and gross abortions of logic on so many issues youll drive yourself nuts by the end and they will be just as vacuous and eager as before. I have managed to debate a few people out of thinking communism was a good idea, and gun ownership is not only a right of Americans but also a duty and good idea generally but those victories are rare, and fair people few and far between.
Choose your battles wisely.
Never underestimate the power of ignorant people in large groups.
"I am appalled at your blatant hatred of 51% of Americans and America. The name of the game is to get back in power. Bad things happening to Americans are good in a Liberals point of view. More death and destruction means lower approval ratings for the President"
Amen!! Their total need to be back in control makes anything acceptable. It's like they say it is alright to loot because they didn't win life's lottery so they will get in when they can. It isn't alright to loot and it isn't alright to sell out this great country over a bunch of political power grabbing BS. Come on America, put these jerks in their place, fight back when they spew their venom. Honest, the facts are on our side and they won't be able to stand the test.
But if he's going after the vast undecided mass of Americans, this piece is going to come across as just a little on the whiny side. It doesn't really do much to defend the President. All it really does is complain about the fact that charges are being made against him. That's not the way to win people over.
Absolutely right. As soon as the facts begin to emerge, they shift to another subject and begin to spew untrue 'facts' and hate.
You're right that online debates between a staunch Lib and Conservative never change their stances.
But like you said, I strongly believe there are dozens of on the fence lurkers who will say "Ah HA!" to a calm bit of logic. That's how I was converted, so to speak.
By kind people who pretty much said, "this is a healthy way to view life and the world"....been there ever since.
You know what's sadder than that reporter saying that? It's that she never has to provide proof to back it up!!!
Who will the liberals blame once Bush's term is up?
Won't happen. Liberals would not know the truth even if it smacked them in the face!!!
LMAO! You should know better. These Dummie Rats can't read fact sheets. they are meaningless to them. Haven't you seen the silly protest signs they carry around with such glaring falsehoods written on them? They don't care about truth, facts.
It's all about hate for them. That's all. They think what you earn belongs to them, if you work and save your money, buy a nice house and car, you automaticly become the enemy. "The rich" who no doubt stole that money from them. Never mind the FACT that they have never earned a dime on their own for you to Steal. They think communism is the way the world should run, never mind the FACT that it fails time and time again, and has been the biggest cause of human tragety in history, 100's of millions died because of it. The only other killer of equal proportion has been the spread of Islam. Of course, they like to LIE, and twist history and say Christianity was, but nothing can be further from the truth. It has been the cause of more peace in the world in the history of mankind.
Don't bother trying to argue with a DUmmie RAT. When they grow up and get a job, they will suddenly discover that keeping their paycheck enables them to care for themselves and familly, rather than having it stolen from them by corrupt government and handed over to their political friends.
WE are all with you.... Roliads are being eaten by me by the handfulls. I agree, we stand up for our President and the best way I know is rebute those hateful libs comments. Write emails, contact t.v. staions, movie stars etc. WE can not sit back and be silent. The most powerful weapon I have is bathe our country in PRAYER! I did that this morning, I also turned off talk radio and news. I have on Christian Radio and it is conviencing me that God is in control. Faith is a hard thing to grasp on to but we have got to use what God has given us, and that is to stay in his word and prayer.
I share the same sentiments as the author. I have my beef with many of policies of Bush, but he is a good man, almost to a fault. However, I am sick of the vat of lies and bile coming out of the left.
"I wonder what Lance Armstrong would think about that?"
I was just over at DU handing out large glasses of kool aid they quickly drank and begged for more...here is their new rant...Let the people of New Orleans go back home...un f@#$%^ing beliveable.
I agree 100%. We've had a great natural disaster and in less than a week it has been brought under control.
No other nation in world history could have done it.
It is strictly posturing by politicians and other hustlers to say derogatory things about the relief effort.
Yes it could have been done better or faster or more cheerfully or in a more culturally sensitive way or more environmentally friendly way or whatever.
All the Monday morning quarterbacks always show up after somebody else did all the work.
Don't feel guilty about it at all. Saving youself means one less person that someone else has to take the time, effort, and resources to save, that can be used for saving someone else. Besides, you have to save yourself before you can help others.
If a lot more people had a plan to save themselves in these types of events, there would be far less death and suffering from them.
I think that their silence is a direct order from President Bush. He wont stoop down and engage them at their level. He knows the truth will vindicate him. God bless that man.
One thing to comfort is to remember that liberals are literally the dumbest people on earth. These idiots pretty much run every major US city and look in what condition these cities are, including their public schools.
White liberal policies have continued to trap blacks in horrible inner city conditions. Bush wanted to do something about it, namely school vouchers. But, of course, white liberals and their sick conspirators in the teachers unions will none of it. Now, who "dislikes black people," Kenya, or whatever your stupid name is?
Don't bother debating liberals - just hope they all die off soon.
What do you expect from DUmmie RATS? They like living in dark damp smelly sewer water chocked full of disease, no electricity or running water, and flushing toilets. They can't see why they are removing these people from such a cozy sounding place.
They'll always blame Bush! They still blame Nixon and Reagan.
Read my post #35....the tin foil hats are in super spin mode.
Thanks for posting this. The media has just been sickening in their coverage. Much time spent trying to blame Bush, not nearly as much time explaining the amazing evacuation effort. What a marvelous job has been done, and is still being done! Helping people out of the area, setting up shelters, finding places for people to stay on a more permanent basis, taking care of their basic needs. The task has been monumental.
The Federal Government, the relief agencies, and other citizens who have participated in this effort should all be congratulated. If this had happened with a Democrat in the White House, just think how different the coverage of this story would have been!
Nice post, good CitizenJ.
Without the internet... Kerry would have won.
I pretty much agree, but..... It is slowing and hindering his ability to get things done. And this is exactly what the lefties, radicals want and manage to accomplish because we don't call them on it. That lie just keeps getting bigger and bigger that it cripples any efforts
For me, being a conservative means that I can think for myself, that I don't have to follow the party dogma, that I can disagree with my fellow conservatives.
When I do argue with liberals, usually in a face-to-face situation, all I do is to plant a little seed of doubt in their heads, let them start thinking on their own. Eventually, they will walk out of the liberal plantation on their own.
That ha been the pattern since January 2001...
The "Shots" just keep coming and missing. We have a new one every 1-2 months.
