In 2008, the liberals put up the haughty hilarity known at the time as “Stop the Smears”. This was the snitch site on Al Gore’s Internet that was devoted to taking the legitimate arguments against the poltroonish potentate and to classify them as “smears” so as to marginalize them and to de-legitimize them.. I sarcastically (imagine that..) said at the time that John McCain should have immediately responded with a web site that should have been called “Stop the Ears”..
This was the dry run to test the waters for the full throttle application of “racism” as a Democratic default political “argument” as November neared.. The more obscure the liberal, the more outlandish that they could get away with being when rolling out the Democratic depth charges. This made the OWEbama not-so thinly veiled racist nonsense of “I don’t look like the other Presidents” and “They’re trying to make you sacred of me” seem somewhat sublime but just as ridiculous..
It’s hard to think of the liberals having “arguments” as the liberals have taken the idea of an “argument” over time and reduced it to one or two words.. This is taking “CliffsNotes” to an illogical degree but what other degree would the liberals utilize other than an illogical one? An “argument” that diminutive isn’t even a discussion, let alone an “argument” but its more than enough “proof” from the liberal perspective..
Please keep in mind that the liberals do not need “proof” from those that they support, their collectivist crackpotterie is welcomed with warm slaps on the back. The “proof” that the liberals require has to come from those that have been falsely accused by other Bolshevik bullies and no matter the definitive “proof” that you provide, it is never enough to exonerate you in the jaundiced eyes of the simpleminded socialists..
Simultaneously, the liberal “argument” has become so devoid of substance through this resorting to “argumentative minimalism” that they simply CAN’T “argue” with anyone anymore. They heaved all of their intellectual baggage over the side of the socialist ship decades ago leaving them with only the hand grenades of heresy to try to fight with.. It is an embarrassing intellectual atrophy.. Thus their “argument” invariably involves you having to defend yourself against baseless one-word attacks, simply calling you an “-ist” or attaching some silly “-ism” to your intellectual contributions.. Failing that, they just try to use volume and reactionary rudeness to stop your participation in the conversation. Failing that, they just remove your First Amendment rights altogether..
Now we fast forward to 2011 and the same socialists have just launched ANOTHER snitch bitch web site where they implore you to “get the facts, fight the smears..” The liberals ALWAYS seek to tar and feather your arguments against their destructive socialism as nothing more than “smears” because this is just their reflexive “progressive projection”. For example, how can calling your opponent a “racist” be ANYTHING BUT a “smear”? The left may try to pule about, calling ANY disagreement with the liberal lunacy “defamation of character” and the like but in truth it is the “DEFINITION of character”, or actually the lack of character..
One portion of the left’s game plan has altered in a pernicious way. In 2008 the left had to “create” an OWEbama Bolshevik biography, now in 2011, they have to try to erase the ACTUAL evidence of what has transpired since 2009 because it bears their fascist fingerprints.. If they can’t “erase it”, they have to deflect everyone’s attention from it.. Failing that, they have to blame the results of their experiments in socialism upon anyone or anything else.. Failing that, “racist”.. You will note that as each of these attempts have failed to garner the desired results, the next attempt that has followed has become even more infantile than the effort that preceded it.. Please note that since the left is left with the barely polysyllabic and baseless “racism”, this will be the one that will have the biggest impact.
One way that their game plan hasn’t altered is the idea of sending progressive pinatas out there to experiment upon, mere totalitarian tackling dummies.. If these collectivist chum get eaten by the sharks, well so be it.. OWEbama just goes out and says the same things only with a few hundred more words comfortably surrounding it.. The left has always sent its most volatile and idiotic lemmings out, those with a lead pipe cinch lock on their socialist seats, to lower the bar of rhetoric and to then gracelessly limbo beneath it.. These are the Democrats seen constantly hiding in the cloak rooms to avoid the men with the white jackets and the nets.. Maxine Waters, John Kerry, James Clyburn and on and on and on.. A list taken straight from the neatly pressed pocket of Nurse Mildred Ratched..
The black (appropriate..) home page for this latest liberal joke contains a few drop down tabs and a few areas that need to be filled in. They want to know where the “smear” in question came from, a “rumor”, a “web site or blog”, etc.. They encourage you to place a link to anything that may offend your delicate socialist sensibilities because if it offends you, it will certainly offend the thin brown thin skinned egomaniac.. This will provide the opportunity for the liberals to trot their “Not-So-Fairness Doctrine” onto the political stage once again and to target a very specific group as well.. Disagreement is verboten, not unlike the state of things in Germany in the early to mid- 1930’s..
Soon the arbiters of “fairness” will be jamming up web sites, blocking access for anyone only to CERTAIN web sites, basically saying that the right of free speech is only available to those who “think” in a particular manner.. Or should I say in a PECULIAR manner..
What is lost upon the liberals is the fact that we encourage the leftists to spontaneously combust verbally specifically because we want their lunacy to be made a part of the public record. If the left were to remain silent, the world would be left to only guess as to how unstable and idiotic their “ideas” are.. The left however has the insight to understand that if enough people are exposed to the conservative ethos, the Democratic caucus would consist of Howard Dean, Dennis Kucinich and about twenty of the severely undermedicated Democratic droolers who wander about by day pestering you for your change and who live under a highway overpass by night.. Thus their absolute need to silence those who are intellectually superior to them while brandishing the dull accusatory scimitar of “hate speech” and other such progressive propaganda of piffle.
These are the tactics of the desperate, those with a barren intellectual field from which to try to harvest political ideas.. This is certainly the season of the “Democratic Drought”..
