Skip to comments.Jim Moranís Crazy Analysis of the Midterms
Posted on 02/02/2011 7:53:25 AM PST by Kaslin
In Congressman Jim Morans (D) hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, a few years ago, some New Years Eve reveler ran his car into a pedestal in the middle of Washington Street. He knocked down a statue that had stood there for decades. The very liberal, very politically correct folks in Alexandria jumped at the chance to get rid of the soldier on the pedestal.
That soldier is a Confederate Johnny Reb. They were about to ship Johnny off to the old soldiers home when Richmond intervened. It seems the statue was put up with state funds and couldnt be moved without permission of Virginias state legislature. Well, so much for secession. Johnnys statue is back on his middle-of-the-road pedestal.
Congressman Moran is certainly no middle-of-the-roader. Hes a far-left liberal. And recently he took advantage of all the commentary about President Obamas State of the Union Address to talk to Arab listeners throughout the Mideast. Mr. Moran gave an interview to the Arabic language radio network, al Hurra.
Jim Moran has an interesting take on the Midterm elections. He explained to millions overseas the reason for the Republicans victories:
It happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didnt want to see a president who was opposed to slavery. In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States dont want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out and include everyone in our society.
Where do you start with such a dogs breakfast of illogic and contradiction? Surely, President Obama doesnt want to include everybody in our society. If he did, he would not give billions to Planned Parenthood. That outfit was founded by an overt racist, Margaret Sanger. It destroys the lives of hundreds of thousands of unborn children. And the ratio of black to white abortions is 3:1.
But lets unpack that Moran statement further. Americans rejoiced that a black man had been elected as their president. The country gave Barack Obama high marks and high approval ratings at the outset. Only when the presidents big-spending liberalism became undeniable did Mr. Obama begin to slide in the polls.
The Civil War? Yes, it did start when a number of slaveholding states refused to accept the election of a president committed to preventing the extension of slavery into the territories. Lincoln had said he would not compromise on that key point of the Republican Party platform. Hold on that, he told wavering members of Congress, as with a chain of steel.
It was the Republicans, not Jim Morans Democratic Party, that pushed through Emancipation of the slaves as well as the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Civil rights bills to protect newly freed black Americans were passed by Republicans and opposed by Democrats in Congress. Thats the undeniable truth that Jim Moran seems to have forgotten.
Another bizarre aspect of Jim Morans strange interview is his audience: Arabs. Doesnt he not know that Arabs were the ones who first began the slave trade in Africa?
Its shameful that European states that claimed to be Christianfirst the Portuguese and Spaniards, then the Dutch and the Englishjoined in the slave trade. But its a fact of history that the Christian states of Europe were the last in and the first out of what Jefferson called that execrable commerce [that violated] the human rights of unoffending Africans.
Muslim states like Saudi Arabia practiced slavery officially until 1962within the lifetimes of many of us. And no non-Muslim is allowed inside Mecca and Medina today to see if the Muslim monarchs there have followed through on their paper commitment to end African slavery. Jihadists in East Africa today threaten the lives and liberties of black Christians every day! They dont call it slavery, but what else is it when children are swept into the jihadists net?
Jim Moran is wrong about the sources of opposition to President Obamas policies. The vast majority of fair-minded Americans agree with the statement a black man can serve as president of all the people. Poll after poll confirms this. The 2008 elections underscored this truth. What we oppose are specific policies that we believe are harmful to the country. It would be a lot more civil if Congressman Moran didnt accuse Republicans and conservatives of trying to re-fight the Civil War!
Race. The last arrow in the libs’ quiver...
Jim Moran is Virginia’s answer to Pete Stark. The rest of the Commonwealth can’t stand the POS, but thanks to the liberal bastion in the occupied zone, he keeps getting re-elected.
I probably had as good an audience as Moran had.
They asked me what guided my voting and I said, more or less, that when the ruling regime has not delivered good economic and social performance for the people they must be tossed out.
I hope I inspired some folks throughout the Middle East to come to their senses and quit supporting those dictators they all seem to love to have.
Yup, it's not that America supports dictators ~ it's that the people who live there support them. They've had them since before America was discovered and settled. In fact, the first nationstate in history was created in Egypt. They had a dictator. Then the same folks created the second nationstate in history. It also had a dictator. Finally one Egypt conquered the other Egypt and they had a new combined Egypt, complete with, as usual, a dictator.
It's been that way there for THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
Unlike Ron Paul I feel no personal guilt whatsoever about Egypt having dictators.
Now, one can hope, the Egyptians have heard what an ordinary American thinks about it and that I hope was clear ~ when the Regime does not deliver the goods KICK THEM OUT!
Yeah, and they are the real racists
Yeah, we don’t call him Jim Mor - on for nothing.....
Great to see your reference to the “occupied zone”.
Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria are indeed occupied Virginia.
The answer to that lib POS is called “Redistricting”....Moran is white so there should no problem with diluting representation for any minority unless there is a large and secret population of a**holes and last time I looked, Republicans were in charge.....So, how’s about a little “mean spirited” politics to destroy that liberal bastion??
The liberals do have a brain, but it’s only pea sized
