Mark Alexander has such an excellent expose' of the hypocrisy of Liberals in his column today that I couldn't resist posting an excerpt from it. To read the entire article click here.
The Consummate Liberal Hypocrites
Do as I Say, Not as I Do
...Consider if you will the following short list of other notable examples of Leftist hypocrisies, and, by all means, use the comment links to add your own entries.
Liberals are elitists and yet promote themselves as commoners.
They talk about individual rights but promote statist tyranny.
They spout John F. Kennedy's challenge, "Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country," but their policies promote the antithesis of that challenge, instead promoting constituents to demand what their country can do for them.
They hold up Martin King's dream, "that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," but their policies promote the antithesis of that dream, judging all by the color of their skin, rather than the content of their character.
They talk about personal responsibility but are master purveyors of blame-shifting and victimhood.
They are pro-abortion but anti-capital punishment. They support killing the most innocent among us while providing free accommodations and accoutrements for the most heinous of criminals.
They subscribe to Darwinian evolutionary theory, but penalize the most successful humans and reward the least productive -- including subsidizing that lack of productivity and guaranteeing the reproduction of future generations of urban plantation slaves.
They say they want to lift up blacks and Hispanics while promoting policies that instead keep those constituencies on the Poverty Plantation.
They object to Islamist profiling while suppressing Christian expression in any public venue.
The list of Leftist political hypocrites is endless, headlined by Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Feinstein, Reid, Bloomberg and many others.
The list of Leftmedia hypocrites is endless, headlined by nearly every anchor at CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, PBS and NPR.
The list of Leftist pop-culture hypocrites is endless, headlined by Bill Maher, Whoopi Goldberg, George Clooney, Rosie O'Donnell, Spike Lee, Alec Baldwin, Barbra Streisand, Arianna Huffington, Bruce Springsteen and many others.
But the biggest hypocrisy of all is Leftist talk about Liberty when the terminus of their political policies is, unequivocally, tyranny.
They condemn fascism while promoting socialism, but conveniently omit that NAZI stood for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers' Party). In the words of British historian Dr. John Joseph Ray, "The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism." Libertarian Jacob Hornberger adds, "There is no difference in principle, between the economic philosophy of Nazism, socialism, communism, and fascism and that of the American welfare state and regulated economy."
Journalist and political critic H.L. Mencken once concluded, "The chief difference between free capitalism and State socialism seems to be this: that under the former a man pursues his own advantage openly, frankly and honestly, whereas under the latter he does so hypocritically and under false pretenses."
