Liberal Assault On Reason

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.

  1. The Left in general, and Political Correctness in particular, is anti-Enlightenment. Bottom line.
    "Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive"

  2. Well said, Les. I don't know if it's my age speaking or not but it sure seems to me that the left has gotten much, much worse in the last year or so. Even old cynical me never would have thought that there would be a deplorable act of violence like we saw in AZ twisted and turned into a communist left/media politically-motivated propaganda campaign ad.

  3. You said you found it lamentable what they printed, yet aside from quoting the offending "garbage" you did nothing to explain what about it was so offensive, why it was garbage.

    I don't see much wrong with it, myself, but I can't begin to defend it unless you actually explain what was so bad about it.

  4. Jeff - Perhaps one day you will understand.

  5. Rational Nation USA - Perhaps one day people like yourself and LCR will realize there is a world of difference between saying what you believe and saying why you believe it. If you want to make a claim, that claim has to be backed up. Whether the context of that claim means it would require studies/statistics, or simply a breakdown of the narrative, it still has to be done.

    That is, if you actually hope to ever change someone's mind. Otherwise, and until then, this type of circle-jerk blogging is nothing more than a fancy echo chamber.

  6. Seems we have someone fresh out of the school of indoctrination... Looking to straighten us out.
    My advise to you would be, read with an open mind.Try and see both sides of the argument. Think with your own intelligence. Weigh the facts! Facts being a very key point.
    Or maybe you should return to the "circle-jerk" of liberal indoctrination. After all, what have the "progressive" done? Hasn't it all been tried and failed before? Isn't the US the nation more people want to be a part of? We must be doing something right! Liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness!
