If Liberals Really Want to Improve the Political Debate, Here are Some Suggestions on Rhetoric that can be Toned Down
I have been too infuriated with the MF-ing media, the Left, the Democrat Party and Obama himself using the mass murder of people in Arizona to their political advantage to smear conservatives, that I have not been able to start writing anything on the subject without going off on an angry rant. Thankfully, Rush has been expressing on his show everything that has been going through my mind on the subject this past week. Here’s an example:
Commentators right and left — make that left and far left, actually — are telling us that toning down the political rhetoric will improve our national body politic. Let’s take that premise. If liberals really want to improve the political debate, I have some suggestions on rhetoric that can be toned down. I would first ask the media and President Obama and the Democrat Party, to tone down all this class envy rhetoric. I’d stop with all the lies about the evil rich getting richer on the backs of the poor and about the rich who pay most of the taxes in this country not paying their fair share. If I were the far left, I would stop all this talk that is pitting one economic group of people against another. I’d get rid of it. It is creating a climate of distrust and anger and resentment. I would also ask the left and the Democrats to tone down the anti-business rhetoric. Try to acknowledge for once we have the best environmental track record in the history of the world, that we have the highest living standard thanks to American innovators.
All of this talk about Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Plastic, Big Retail as being the enemies of the American people, stop it. What are you gonna do, require Target to change their brand name? How many Target stores are there with their logo and icon all over the store and their printed materials? You gonna take after them next? And along the same lines, those of you on the left, I would tone down all the anti-capitalist rhetoric. Acknowledge that free enterprise has brought more prosperity to the world than any other economic system. Tone down all the anti-doctor rhetoric. The president of the United States accuses American doctors of doing unnecessary surgeries for personal profit in the midst of the health care debate. And again, all the rhetoric against Big Pharma, Big Food, Big Oil, Big Plastic, Big Retail, big everything, Big Profit. It is the left that has an enemies list, and it is every high profile success story having to do with capitalism in America.
I would also say, those of you in the civil rights industry, how about toning down your rhetoric? What is it that gives you license to call everybody who disagrees with you on anything, from affirmative action to illegal immigration, racists? In fact, those of you on the left, you’ve gotta stop something else. Every time somebody disagrees with you, you call it hate speech. You gotta stop that. You’re creating a climate here that is unstable. You’re creating frustration and anger. Notice how the left gets a pass on all this, every time this entire topic comes up. The left, harmless little angels out there just trying to make sure all the bad guys don’t get away with it. What about Reverend Wright’s rhetoric? Obama said he could no more disown Reverend Wright for what he said than he could disown his own white grandmother. There’s some pure hate in Obama’s church that he heard for 20 years.
And then after you leftists start toning down your rhetoric, start toning down your policies that rob Americans of their freedom and their prosperity, if you do all of that, if you leftists take my advice, the political climate in this country will improve beyond measure, the happiness quotient will improve beyond measure, economic prosperity will once again become the order of the day. Happiness will spread far and wide throughout the country. But then that doesn’t help advance your agenda, does it? You need chaos. You need people feeling displaced and aimless. You need people feeling worried about the future so you can set yourselves up as the saviors and the solution. Yeah, it’s pretty offensive. Pretty offensive to listen to the architects of all that’s wrong with this country blame people who have literally nothing to do with anything they’re being accused of doing.
Offensive is an understatement. Sarah Palin was spot-on when she called it a “blood libel“.
Michelle Malkin is also spot-on to point out that we are being lectured on civility by people whose words and actions for the past decade have been the epitome of vitriolic hatred and incitement to violence and murder: The Progressive “Climate of Hate”: An Illustrated Primer, 2000-2010
The Tucson massacre ghouls who are now trying to criminalize conservatism have forced our hand.
They need to be reminded. You need to be reminded.
Confront them. Don’t be cowed into silence.
And don’t let the media whitewash the sins of the hypocritical Left in their naked attempt to suppress the law-abiding, constitutionally-protected, peaceful, vigorous political speech of the Right.
They want to play tu quo que in the middle of a national tragedy? They asked for it. They got it.
