Apologies, Mr. President

Nixon: Now That Bitch Is a CriminalApologies, Mr. President

Yeah, given what President Nixon did as compared to what Hillary Clinton has done and given the disparity of responses to those respective crimes, America – especially each and every Democrat – owes President Nixon a much belated and posthumous apology.

But then, we’ve nobody to blame but ourselves. The difference in response is because of the long and sorted history of the Patriarchy and our sexist and misogynist culture which expects so much less from- and make so many more excuses for the little women. 😉

A Democrat Once Said…

I know it’s hard to believe, but a Democrat – a quite progressive one for the time – once said this:

At the heart of that Western freedom and democracy is the belief that the individual man, the child of God, is the touchstone of value, and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit. Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and the abiding practice of any Western society.

— Robert F. Kennedy

Yes, Robert Kennedy said this during his 1966 address to the students and faculty of he University of Capetown, South Africa. Of course, this was just a few weeks shy of 50 years ago and in the intervening decades the Democrats and their Liberal and Progressive adherents have degenerated to the point where the very mention of God or religion – except to deny the former and lambast the latter – is anathema to them.

No, no longer could or would a Democrat describe Man as the child of God.

So too during the Left’s fall from vestiges of Americanism it once had, did they decide to revile most forms of mention of the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings, demanding instead a collective ethical consciousness that places non-sexual individual liberty subservient to both the State and the collective.

So today is St. Patrick’s Day. It seems to some of us that there’s been a long, slow degeneration of the nature of Irish heroes. 😉
