The GOP is Not the Core Problem with this Country
I left this comment in response to this essay from Wordsmith at Flopping Aces: My Party, Right or Wrong. It’s a great comprehensive analysis of what the GOP, GOP-voters and conservatives need to think about after the losses in the 2006 and 2008 elections.
However, I am still baffled, as I state below, as to why there is so much hand-wringing on the Right and a seemingly willful desire to ignore the 500-lb gorilla in the room: the fact that a majority of this nation is now attracted to and rewarding the vitriolic hate, smearing, demonizing and criminal activity of the mass media, Democrats and the rest of the Angry Left.
Sure, there are many issues that the GOP must resolve. However, as I state below, we have some flawed politicians which make up the GOP, while we have a bunch of hateful, racist, vitriolic criminals and liars which make up the Democratic Party and its main base of support (not to mention which make up the entire mass media, which is now the propaganda arm of the Left and the Democratic Party).
By all means, discuss what needs to be done to improve the flawed GOP, however, not at the expense of the core problem in this nation: an ignorant, apathetic American public, the majority of which seems to be attracted to racism, communism, socialism, vitriolic hatred against the Right and the GOP and criminal activity and lying in order to gain power at any cost.
Because, no matter what the GOP does to fix itself, if we don’t do something about this core problem among the population of this nation, we are doomed.
However I don’t know how it squares with the success of the Angry Left over the past 4 years. The advice to Republicans and Republican voters seems to be ‘be more welcoming’ and ‘be more nice’, when, in fact, over the course of the past 4-8 years, the Left has become more intolerant, more angry, more vitriolic and more hateful… to amazing success.
So the argument that people like Ann Coulter hurt the Party and movement, I find to be bullshiite. It has worked wonders for the Left to be intolerant and hateful and demonizing to anyone who does not agree with them. Ann Coulter does not even come close to what is the Angry Left and yet the GOP and conservatives are smeared based on her commentary and the Democrats and liberals are considered good based on their Angry Left? Utter crap.
Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Daily Kos, Democrat Underground, Huffington Post, Hollywood and entertainment industry celebrities, John Murtha, Rev Wright, Bill Ayers, Barack Obama himself with his “typical white person”, “clinging to guns and the Bible”, “they’re going to accuse me of not being like other Presidents”, etc etc etc… all this hate and demonizing and lying and smears and vitriol and racism and … they won huge in 2006 and 2008 and never have been called to the carpet on their despicable actions.
Instead of all this hand-wringing about the GOP all over the place in the right-of-center blogosphere, it would be nice to see an analysis of how we are supposed to win any elections in the near future when the majority of this nation allows the Democrat Party and the Left and the mass media to get away with racism, corruption, illegality, lies and smears.
Barack Obama himself is guilty of massive corruption, lying during his campaign, despicably accusing anyone who criticized him of racism when none existed, Black Supremacism, ties to communists, socialists, Marxists and terrorists, voter registration fraud, campaign donation fraud, ties to ACORN which had its hand in the mortgage crisis… yet, he got off scott-free with all of that.
Basically, we are sitting here talking about our football team losing 21-14 in the Super Bowl, when the other team cheated the entire game, used every dirty trick in the book on every play, and were aided and abetted by the referees who were bought and paid for to help them win the game. And instead of looking at the huge problem of that staring us in the face, we are sitting here blaming our players for not being good enough to rise above all that and still win the game.
I’m simply baffled.
Yes, there are problems in the GOP, but there are much, much *bigger* problems with this nation, with the Democrat Party, with the mass media and with wishy-washy GOP-voters and conservatives who just want to sweep everything that took place in the last election under the rug, pretend it never happened and it won’t affect our future and just put all the blame on ourselves.
I’d like to know how we are supposed to overcome the fact that any valid criticism of Obama is deemed racism. The fact that any valid criticism of Obama is deemed a ‘distraction’ and a ‘hateful attack’ and ‘irrelevant’. The fact that the mass media is completely controlled by the Left and the Democrats, not to mention the entertainment industry, the public school system and the universities.
I am not denying that the GOP has work to do in order to get back to its core principles. However, from where I sit, we have a party of flawed politicians and a party of hateful, vitriolic criminals and liars who will do whatever it takes to gain power and keep power.
The way I see it, the GOP could turn into the perfect statesmen with the perfect ideas for the future of this country and it wouldn’t matter a lick, because we have a majority nation which finds nothing wrong with what I mentioned earlier:
“Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Daily Kos, Democrat Underground, Huffington Post, Hollywood and entertainment industry celebrities, John Murtha, Rev Wright, Bill Ayers, Barack Obama himself with his “typical white person”, “clinging to guns and the Bible”, “they’re going to accuse me of not being like other Presidents”, etc etc etc… all this hate and demonizing and lying and smears and vitriol and racism…”
60+ million people in this nation obviously are attracted to this kind of vitriolic hatred. *That* is a major problem.
If we want to know how to win elections again, we are going to have to figure out why the majority of this nation is attracted to such filth.
