Comparing Dreams

The goals, hopes, prayers, and dreams of men are as much a weather vane of their worth and character as their actions. This is especially true of those men who make their living their livings via words rather than deeds, such as Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton.

Glenn Beck v. Al Sharpton - Comparing Their Dreams
Comparing The Dreams of Beck and Sharpton

The image above pretty much sums it up, although we can’t really compare the two without running afoul of political correctness. Judging them each by the exposed content of the characters would be decried as racist if we didn’t lower the bar of our expectations and judgement for Sharpton.

OK, to be heartlessly fair, the hopes and dreams of Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton are actually quite similar. Both are media pundits and demagogues and both merely hope and dream of continued wealth, fame, and relevance.

Also, I personally have found both of them to be painful to listen to for any length of time, Beck due the histrionics his delivery and Sharpton due to base evil of his content.

The Ghouls Feast

Ghoul - Eater of the DeadJared Lee Loughner’s shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and 19 other people — six of whom were killed, including a 9 year-old girl — in Tucson, AZ on Saturday, January 8, 2010 should have shocked the nation. That, at least would be the normative common consensus about such a brutal and sudden massacre, coming, as it did, without forewarning and leaving so many people dead and/or wounded.

Obviously such shock is part of the innocence that America has lost over the years; it was not in evidence that Saturday. The victims’ bodies hadn’t finished bleeding out, much less grown cold, before the ghouls of the Left were doing their best to capitalize upon the lethal attack.

The Professional Left

Within minutes of Loughner’s attack Liberal pundits and the Left-Wing, “lamestream” media were trying to blame Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sharron Angle, the Tea Party, and American patriots in general for “inciting” the attack with their rhetoric.

These filth didn’t know at that time what had actually happened or who the attacker was, much less what his motivations were but that didn’t stop them from feasting on the fresh corpses for the sake attacking their American rivals.

The Race-Baiters

Right behind the Professional Leftists were the race-baiters, though there is, of course, an overlap between two varieties of ghouls They did, perforce, have to wait until Loughner was identified as being a White. Once he was known to be White though, they dove right into the feast.

This particular breed of domestic enemy was, after establishing the Whiteness of the attacker, was as quick as always to paint the whole incident in racial terms and attempted to tie it into immigration laws even though Giffords was not a proponent of porous and insecure borders.

After that initial spate of anti-Americanism came the Muslims and their shills who jabbered on about how, if Loughner were a Black or Muslim, he’d have been treated differently by the media and would have been called a terrorist as opposed to a murderer.

The Gun-Grabbers

Finally came the ghouls amongst the gun-grabbers, hell-bent on using anything to disarm the law-abiding members of American society.† They were last to the feast because they had to wait until the evidence pointed to Loughner attempted assassination of Rep. Giffords being the act of a madman as opposed to a political act.

Zombies from Night of the Living Dead
They Hunger For Blood Of The Innocent

Both Americans and our Liberal and Progressive enemies knew this sort of cynical use of the Tuscon, AZ rampage was going to happen. It’s part and parcel of realpolitik and is firmly embedded in modern ideological warfare.

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste, and what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you didnít think you could do before.

— Rahm Emanuel

What is disgusting is how fast the Leftist ghouls descended on the victims and twisted their deaths and injuries, and the resultant anguish of their loved ones, into agenda-driven political and ideological attacks against America, Americans, and fundamental American values.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama led the nation in a moment of silence Monday morning in honor of the victims of Saturday’s mass shooting in Tucson, AZ. As laudable a symbolic gesture as that was, the nation would have been better off if the Left had held a moment or two of silence on Saturday before starting their macabre orgy.

Turnabout Is Fair Play

Recently the NAACP passed a resolution condemning Tea Party activism by equating it with racism, a false but all to common attack form from the Leftists and their minority tenants like the increasingly irrelevant NAACP.

One blogger, Andrew Breitbart, responded to this attack upon Americans by posting a video of the USDA’s Georgia State Director for the USDA Rural Development, Shirley Sherrod, recounting her racist attack upon a White farmer to a NAACP gathering and the applause and approval the tale got from the Blacks there.


Andrew Breitbart’s Video of Shirley Sherrod Recounting Her Racism

President Obama’s administration responded by having their Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vilsack force her to resign. The NAACP responded by issuing a statement saying that they condemn behavior such as that shown by the now unemployed Shirley Sherrod. This was all done openly and within a matter of hours in order to minimize the damage that such statements as Sherrod’s could do to the Obama Regime and the NAACP.

One problem – the video, while not fake, was so heavily edited that it largely misportrayed Shirley Sherrod statements. She was, in point of fact, recounting her past racist behavior and how she overcame those prejudices and her bigotry.

Watching this debacle unfold reminded me of an old adage, “Turnabout is fair play.”

President Obama, the USDA and Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack, the NAACP, and – very sadly – Mrs. Sherrod were faced with the exact same sort of attack that Whites and organizations perceived as being White-dominated have been faced with on a nearly daily basis for years – and they responded to the attack in exactly the same manner as America’s society, rife with political correctness and ethno-guiltism, has demanded that Whites do.

All that happened was that the roles of race-baiting grievance-monger and reactionary victim trying to minimize the damage were reversed and I, for one, am smiling at the reversal of positions but the consistency – dare I say equality? – of the responses.

Yet, all schadenfreude aside, I’m not unaware or unmindful of another old adage, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

Mendacity and race-baiting of this sort is vile and pernicious irregardless of the respective ethnicities of the attacker and victim. Mr. Breitbart certainly shouldn’t be lauded for his actions any more than Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson should ever be lauded for theirs.

Cowardice, cynicism, and lack of judgment are also severe ethical failings irrespective of the race of those who exhibit them. President Obama, the USDA, and the NAACP should certainly be taken to task for the nature of their response to Breitbart’s attack just as too many other people and groups to name should be for responding to race-baiting attacks in the same general manner.

Perhaps though, this old adage might be wrong in this case; perhaps these wrongs can make a right. Now that America has a this very public role reversal in the racialist attacks it might just be the case that, in the wake of the damage done to both President Obama and the NAACP, that there will be a reduction in the race-baiting rhetoric and attacks that have become so ubiquitous since Obama’s election.

I’m neither ignorant of history nor insane, so I don’t hold much hope of this. I do, however, hold a little bit of it though; having your favorite weapon used upon you is often quite educational – a teaching moment, if you will.

I See Rush Everywhere

President Obama continues to wage his failing war against Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Glen Beck. Such an attempt by anyone other than a sitting POTUS might be comical, but this is the POTUS launching attacks against the segments of the media who refuse to pander to his wishes and whim. That makes it sad and more than a little disturbing since Obama controls the FCC, access to the White House, and federal law enforcement agencies – and has repeatedly shown little regard or esteem for US Constitution – especially the 1st Amendment.

Limbaughs and Coulters and Becks! Oh My!

Insane Obama Sees Rush Limbaugh Everywhere
Obama – I See Rush Everywhere

It’s a sad thing for America when the POTUS is so shallow and small that he cannot rise above his baser nature and brush off the more vitriolic statements by his opponents. President Clinton largely managed to do it when faced with Rush Limbaugh’s rhetoric. President Bush Jr. successfully did so in the face an the bulk of the MSM’s constant attacks and insults – and the repeated diatribes and screeds of Obama during the 2008 elections.

It’s a crying shame that Obama doesn’t have the poise, self-confidence, and stature as a man, much less a man Americans are forced to trust with the reins of power, of his predecessors.

And, of course, the Leftist MSM – the degenerate and corrupted remains of the bulk of American journalism – is ever eager to trade softcore interviews and feeder questions to President Obama in exchange for continued access to the White House.

This just feeds President Obama’s narcissism and delusions of both worth and persecution – and aids him in his attempt to vilify dissent and marginalize those few journalists and commentators who are still willing and able to question “The One” and his agenda for fundamentally changing America and turning it into something recognizable as only a mockery of its past self.

~*~

Of course it’s axiomatic that just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean that they’re not out to get you. It is also axiomatic that you will be forced to reap what you have sown, and it is a sad truth that President Obama and his coterie have sown the wind.
