I knew this time of year is a sort of news vacuum, and it was proved yet again when I saw responses to my recent letter to the editor.
Per Ann Coulter’s dictum, I never, or seldom anyway, argue with liberals. It’s as fruitful as debating signposts. And atheists? It goes doubly. And how does one possibly respond to an assertion that putting gay men in charge of young Boy Scouts on a camping trip is a good idea?
The thing speaks for itself — res ipsa loquitur. Foxes guarding hens comes to mind.
As for the Civil Rights issue someone mentioned, I was in the forefront of that struggle in the early 1960s. All the calumny of the Right was directed at me then, and it wasn’t pretty. I must say that if I had known then how race would become an industry instead of a quest for equal rights, I might have been much more hesitant.
And martyrdom? It may be down the road apiece, but if the present trends are not redirected, it will most definitely come. A good clue to that appears in Thursday’s MDJ, where the AP reported one of the “Duck Dynasty” people was interviewed. He refused to take the liberal press bait, so he’s off the hook, which means, in no uncertain terms, that if you are in the public eye and are asked “controversial” questions — bait — you had better give either the “right” answer, or no answer. A “wrong” answer and you can expect a firestorm, censure and career doom. That, my friends, is not freedom.
I will reiterate: liberalism/progressivism is a toxic, poisonous brew. The MDJ pages, yet again, prove this point in the unspeakably inane and Orwellian column of Froma Harrop, wherein she posits, using another idiot lib’s “study” that Obama is a great economic mind!
This doesn’t just stretch credulity, it stands it on its head, mocks it and obliterates it! Can she possibly think that the populace hasn’t noticed the great Obama-like economic successes brought about in locales such as Detroit, Birmingham, Illinois and any other city or state where Democrats have been in charge? “Risible” is far too mild a description for her and her fellow-traveling revisionists.
Anyway, thanks for the space. Being a target of thinking-impaired liberals is not a burden, but a privilege.
