“No Labels” Group Meets … Or Why I Would Prefer You Not Call Me A Lefty
http://radioviceonline.com/ ^ | December 14,2010 | Jim Vicevich

If only this were a coalition of the left and the right working out differences. But alas, it’s just a coalition of mostly liberal politicians who used to label themselves by a political party and now would rather fly stealth. Sigh.

If you are not familiar with “No Lables”, no worries, it’s brand new and they certainly deserve a Hat Tip for brevity. Here’s their declaration:

We are not labels – we are people. We care deeply about our country. We are frustrated and concerned about the tone of politics. We are passionate about addressing America’s challenges. We are Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

Once again they think that those who believe in what the Constitution says are idiots. Sorry, the Tea Party activism is evidence that we can now see through everything those Left Wing Statists are doing and we are mobilized.

As long as they acknowledge that conservatism is the center, and then from there you can move either to the left or right.

Conservatives cling to the old fashioned and repellent idea of treating people as individuals rather than as the fulfillment of racial, sexual, ethnic or class stereotypes.

In other words, conservatives are what the “No Labels” movement claims to be, and conservatives mean it. The difference is that the liberals who are now labeling themselves as “No Labels” are lying (if I’m permitted to use an accurate label). Again.

Label’s are a shorthand and like shorthand, for the most part accurate and useful. The Left hates anything that is accurate or useful. Prejudice is simply the operation of common sense. We see patterns in life and extract useful information. Would you board a ratty looking aircraft with a slovenly pilot, even though superficial appearance have no direct effect on safety?

The Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus will probably go on Black Entertainment TV to denounce labels.

This is the very reason they went from “Progressive” to “Liberal” back to “Progressive”
and now with this “No Labels” crap -

people come to understand who they are and what they believe -

they are FASCISTS,
and they want to keep hiding that information from people.

For some reason, I read that as “Black Entitlement TV”.
Must be too early in the morning for obfuscation to work.

Rush did a great job on discussing this on Monday. It sounded like a commentary I made last week upon hearing about this group.

It's a farce to disguise leftists causes and attempt to dilute the conservative message dropped like an anvil on congress and the president's agenda this past November.

More enemy propaganda being pushed through yet another political back door.

"No Labels" is a "no brainer" to be added to the enemies list right along with every other democrat worshiping hate group.

Notice that labels like liberal, leftist, socialist, and etc was something they were proud of and for the last few years they would try to rub our faces in their “superiority.” Now they act like their beliefs are an embarrassing relative.

Real Americans, as exemplified by the Tea Party, are an anathema to today’s liberals.
The liberals of yesteryear have turned into full blown Marxist.
I prefer the term of Savage, “Red diaper doper babies”, but I add “neo-Marxist” at the end.
Liberals, of course, cloak themselves in touchy-feely terms such as “Progressives”.
These people have no core values, and generally morally weak.
Their lives are based on “If it feels good, do it.”

Exit question: So if you were writing a slogan for them, what would it be.

"Zombies don't like labels either".

But don't the liberals use labels themselves in dealing with others?

They not only 'label' everyone, but they label us in the most derogatory terms they can come up with... If we don't agree with them the labels will have 'phobe' at the end of it, racists, haters or worse. And all because we don't agree with them. How dare they?

Our big insult for them is to call them liberals. Wouldn't it be sweet if the worst they called us was 'conservative'?

See tag.

“No labels” is itself a label.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
The press already has that policy in effect.

Let you, an R, run for asst dog catcher and ten years later get caught up in something illegal, and the headline will read “FORMER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE..etc...etc...etc”

Let a sitting, high ranking D commit or be involved in a heinous crime and you will have to read the entire paper to find out that he is a D.

Of course, by ‘their’ excluding the D to begin with, we have just presumed he was a D because of the omission.

So, the plan works???

Thanks.

The quickest way to shut down their dopey semantics ploy is to make their own new, improved non-label label just as toxic as the original.

What ridiculous little people they are.

“No Labels” - really? Why now? I can tell you why. The liberals lost, therefore, they want “bipartisanship” to pass their liberal agenda. If you disagree, you’re an extremist. Not a label, apparently.

" 'No Labels' Group Meets......"

This group of losers is so pathetic and their "platform" so sophomoric that it defies description.

Did they hold their first meeting in the game arcade at the mall?

Everyone always figures out what’s in the can of crap.
That’s why they keep changing what they “prefer to be called”.

I love all the leftist buzz words in the ‘no labels’ mission statement: deeply, passionate, concerned, tone, crisis, purpose.

“sophomoric”


I’ve said for years that “liberalism” can be summed up in the mentality of an 11 yr old girl.
To them, it’s a matter of being “mean” or “nice”.
You’re “mean” if you expect everyone to take care of themselves and their families.
You’re “nice” if you “want to help people in need”.

They don’t think ANY deeper than that.
