What Is It With Democrats And Funerals?
polipundit ^ | February 07th, 2006 | Lorie Byrd

What is it that makes Democrats incapable of controlling their hostility, even during funerals?

Especially during funerals.

Rush Limbaugh just played a clip of today’s “Wellstone Funeral moment” from Rev. Joseph Lowry in which he raised the issue of weapons of mass destruction in the Coretta Scott King funeral, then talked about how not enough money is going to the poor.

I know I have seen figures that indicate that Bush has spent more on some programs for the poor than Clinton did, but it wouldn’t matter if he had spent ten times more.

Facts don’t matter.

This is pure theater, folks.

Can you imagine how the media would have reported a Republican using the Reagan funeral to make the point that Democrats were wrong about communism and that they are just as wrong on terrorism?

Fortunately we have a President with more class in his little finger than the entire Democrat party.

Following the Lowry comments, Bush gave him a hug.

Good question. The entire country is wondering the same thing.

Are they such seething fanatics that nothing is apolitical?

I can't believe Dems think this helps. Anyone with a brain knows their behavior is inappropriate, and yet they continue to do it? The problem with Dems is they think if only they can get their message out they can change minds. We already know their message, just shut up.

These people have no class. It is amazing to me to see that the Democrats not only have no respect for the law unless it is theirs to use for personal gain. But they no longer even pretend to be civil; they are rude, undisciplined and a bit lower than animals in behavior. What a disgrace! They behave like communists!

This FAR exceeds the vile Wellstone funeral. The president and his wife were there. And a former president [Carter] acted like the enemy.

"What is it with Democrats?"

What is it with their perverse need to climb on top of corpses to parade their fine moral sensibilities?

They do it with the casualties in Iraq; they have done the same thing here.

It's freakish.

Evidently they still like wallowing in the clinton's legacy. I'm not sure if bill clinton taught the dems. how low a person could go and still function, or if they were like this all along and just needed a nudge from clinton. Any *conservative* democrats around this country who are waiting to get their old party back should seriously consider just walking away and not looking back. It is beyond redemption. Today proved just that.

Democrats are now coarsened by their culture, frustrated by failure, blinded by hatred, and motivated by lust for power. They are also insulated from reality by their own ideology as reflected back at them by the Media that share their illusions. God help us if they retake control of our government in their present state.

A creative freeper could take the shot of the President speaking where you can see his chair next to Laura empty and photoshop the pictures of sheets Byrd in his klan garb in there. I don't have the talent, but that is powerful symbolism. On the other hand, it does take us to the same level.

They are just dumb. The things they said are the kinds of things that you say in a crowd of people who you know agree with you. On the other hand, they are not smart enough to realize that others are watching and taking notes.

Democrats have discovered caskets make great soapboxes. And the best part about it is, nobody dares walk out nor does the guest of honor (the deceased) object or hog the stage!

Show 'em a stump and they just can't resist. If I had been the organizer of this event, with the goal of commemorating the life of Ms. King with the dignity, decorum, and respect she deserved; I'd be highly dissed. Lowery and Carter hijacked and cheapened it. Mr. Carter never fails to dissapoint.

Democrats and funerals.

They hate George Bush. They fear the next funeral he attends will be their parties.

I remember as a child reading a book about a pet owl. In one scene, it flew through an open window into the middle of a family dinner carrying a dead skunk it had caught.

But the scene I remember was when the kid's dad and uncle were out crow hunting and the crows wouldn't come close enough to shoot at. And then, on his own accord, the pet owl jumped up on a fence post.

From then on, the crows didn't care that they were getting blasted out of the sky as they flew in. They just wanted to get at that owl.

And today, Bush reminds me of that owl and the Dems remind me of those hateful dumbass crows.

Post 17 is worth repeating:

"Democrats are now coarsened by their culture, frustrated by failure, blinded by hatred, and motivated by lust for power. They are also insulated from reality by their own ideology as reflected back at them by the Media that share their illusions. God help us if they retake control of our government in their present state."

If Hillary or her ilk get the presidency with the mindset displayed today at L. King's funeral, they will wreck our American society and economy. It will be worse than ten 9/11 attacks.

Carter uses religion for political purposes. He is the one who proclaims to be a great christian. After watching his insults and lack of manners today at a funeral, I have lost all respect for him. He is the kind of Christian who turns people away from the church.

Well, I wish they were stupid. It would make work for we conservatives much easier if that were the case. The black leadership is actually very smart. They've been exploiting their constituency for over forty years now and their worst fear on nightmare is that they will lose their power and control over their black base - which is actually what's happening. That's why their tone has become so shrill and hysterical. However, the more shrill they get, the more irrelevant they become. So, let'em scream!

I use to look at Carter as a bumbling misguided man who was in over his head during his Presidency. The last ten plus years have revealed him to be a demented Marxist, hell-bent on re-writing his legacy at the expense of the American people. He must be the role model for the likes of William Jefferson Clinton... it's all about them.

Even at small time funerals for a want-to-be-DUmmie, they go crazy.

I have seen it...it was amazing.

No talk of how nice the person was or what positive thing that person did...

Democrats have no shame. That is why they can easily slip into a political campaign during a funeral. Others have moral restraint. Not the Democrats.

The Dems remind me of Vampires.

Commie-Vampires that suck the lifeblood out of everything good and decent.

They shrink from God and flag, and are obsessed with death.

Ya' know, I wonder how they would react if, tomorrow morning, the papers were full of cartoons showing the demented democrat antics at that funeral. Maybe a large MLK looking down, at the funeral of his wife, who is being lauded by 4 US Presidents, two of which are carrying on a nightmare of hate, intolerance, and vile disrespect at his beloved's final viewing. "I Had a Dream" would be his bubble thought.

Would dems. be rioting in the streets/demanding a retraction? OF the TRUTH??

Yep. The only fools who show this guy any respect are fascist and anti-American. Certainly no mainstream American has any respect or honor for this traitor. Unfortunately it's gone to his head and because of this "adoration" by these types, he now believes he has the credibility that he could never achieve before. It has emboldened him into a false sense of importance. He truly is a dangerous man if this crowd is who he chooses to saddle up to.
Ironically they'd slit his throat if it suited them and he's too dumb to figure it out.
Perfect example of "useful idiot".

Remember the Lt. Governor ( Democrat Pa), who went to a Marine’s funeral last year, handed out her cards ...

and said, “Our government is opposed to this war.”

I wish tomorrows papers would say:
"The only dignitary at the memorial to truly honor Coretta Scott King was GW Bush. The others exploited her memory in an ugly game of political sport."
AND...
"Teddy Kennedy spoke of MLK being wiretapped [as an attempt to demonize the Bush administration], without mentioning it was his own brothers who ordered those taps."

Think it will happen???
