Liberal Assault On Reason

by: Les Carpenter

It is lamentable, at least to me that anyone could print garbage such as the following from the leftist blog The Daily KOS. It is becoming increasingly clear the lunatic that was responsible for Saturday's horrific events was possessed of an incoherent and irrational hodgepodge of political fantasies. Yet the left continues its attacks on anyone it perceived to be on  the "right" using selective quotes and incoherent logic to attack them.

Now that Sarah Palin has decided to communicate through Glenn Beck's radio show, we get to hear pearls of wisdom like this:


"But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down."


-- Glenn Beck, giving advice to Sarah Palin in the aftermath of the Arizona shootings.


If Palin needs security, she should get it, but it's pretty remarkable that Glenn Beck believes the fate of the Republic hangs in the balance. We do not presently face an existential crisis nor will we anytime soon, and the fact that Glenn Beck says that we are on the cusp of such a crisis is emblematic of his strange combination of cynicism and delusion. That Fox and Clear Channel give him a platform from which to spew his paranoid nonsense on a daily basis is wildly irresponsible.
The obvious attempt  by The Daily KOS to further politicize this past weekend's tragic event and place blame by inference on those who dare to have differing political beliefs than their own is in the very least, disgusting.

The rest of  their communication, as available at this time on the web from Therightscoop

I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer. -Sarah

The video:



Indeed, those who use the tragic events of this past Saturday as a means to further their political ideology by blaming those who have no responsibility for the event I say this.... Your lack of logic, reason, and rationality is both saddening and repugnant.

Further you pose a great threat to the vary concept embodied within the First Amendment to our Constitution. Those who espouse leftist ideology, as the lunatic who was responsible for this past weekend occasionally did, often pose the greatest threat to the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

While I recognize the need and the reason for toning down the political vitriol I cannot keep my views silent when it is increasingly obvious there are those who will use any crisis to attempt to gain political capital and advantage.

  2. As long as we think and they feel, there will be this clash of ideals.

    I'm encouraged by this. The majority of those polled don't buy into the politicizing of this horrid event as done by the liberal media.

    Excellent.

  4. "Those who espouse leftist ideology, as the lunatic who was responsible for this past weekend occasionally did, often pose the greatest threat to the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

    And that is exactly the sort of retarded nonsense people wish the right would tone down. just embarrassingly stupid. I'm very disappointed.

  5. JMJ - I assume by your comment, and perhaps I am wrong... please excuse me if I am, that the "left" is the sole authority on what constitutes "retarded nonsense."

    I am JMJ, very disappointed by your reasoning if such be the case. For if I am correct in my understanding of your statement you fail to see that you, as well as some on the right are part of the problem.

    The principals upon which this republic was founded are as right today as they are timeless.

    Step back and reflect on the above statement and apply it to both the liberal and conservative AMERICAN view. I know this isn't easy because all individuals have their views.

    It has been said opinions are like as**oles, everybody has one. This is true. And what is most reprehensible to me is the scramble to gain political advantage as a result of 10811.

    I leave it to you to decide the meaning of the above paragraph. I hope I am wrong in my perception that you have already made up your mind based solely on political ideology.

    While you may be able to point to a few specific statements that play into your perceptions I would ask you review the content of all my personal posts {as well as those of other contributors at RN USA} and then explain how you arrived at your "retarded nonsense" comment.

    Please feel free to comment back on this post, or by sending me an e-mail to lcarpenter@rationalnationusa.com. The choice is yours.

  6. Les, if you truly believe "Those who espouse leftist ideology, as the lunatic who was responsible for this past weekend occasionally did, often pose the greatest threat to the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," then you are just another righty bombthrower debasing our political debate. It was a retarded comment. I can't think of any liberal activity in the history of this country that ever posed a great threat to our nation or way of life - unless by "way of life" one means slavery, child labor, corporate corruption, pollution, institutional misogyny and racism, etc.

    I assume that you're excluding anything actually related to the protection of my right to my life, liberty, and property. When a government forces me to use the product of my life and liberty (my property) to fund the lives of others (the "liberal" MO), that is slavery. I consider that a threat to my way of life. As I have said before, if you enjoy slavery, that is your choice, but you have no right to impose slavery on others.

  8. >>I can't think of any liberal activity in the history of this country that ever posed a great threat to our nation or way of life...

    I can.

    Lyndon Johnson saying:
    "I'll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years." -- Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler's Book, "Inside The White House"

    Nancy Pelosi:
    "But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy." re: ObamaCare

    Charles (Chuck) Schumer:
    "And let me say this, to all of the chattering class, that so much focuses on those little, tiny — yes, porky — amendments: The American people really don’t care." re: huge almost 800 billion dollar Democrat-sponsored bailout

    And how could I forget-
    Hilary Clinton:
    "The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues (the United States is), whether it’s individual, corporate, whatever the taxation forms are.”

    Democrats/liberals are out to either bankrupt us or destroy us or treat us like ignorant peasants who should willingly abdicate our freedoms to them because they know what's best for us.

    Fah. There's your liberal activity.
