Commentator Mike Barnicle, appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, proudly commented: “…what does it say about a group, CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had, the one who received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?”
Derisive name-calling is the standard retort of the left. Criticism and differences are viciously attacked rather than rationally debated because much of their agenda is based on “belief” rather than reality. Calling Sarah Palin a moron has become a standard of the left and many who are clueless about Palin repeat this proudly as if it is an original thought, but it is pure ignorance.
Often, we find hypocrisy accompanying ignorance such as this because these elite and superior intelligent “believers” never look at themselves and never question what they are fed. Thus, Barnicle scoffs and sneers at Palin’s reception from CPAC, conveniently forgetting that Sandra Fluke, an unaccomplished college student, spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2012 and was their star speaker, treated as a hero – just for whining about having to pay for her own birth control.
Chris Matthews, a perfect example of blind belief, called the CPAC a “whole tapestry of weirdness”, a “crazy right-wing economic agenda” attended by a “crazy car”. How’s that for unbiased, informative reporting? Of course, Matthews has long ago lost credibility, becoming a caricature of himself while turning “Hardball” into “Screwball” on a nightly basis.
Routinely, we hear liberals echo the talking point that Fox News lies or, more specifically, that Bill O’Reilly lies. Yet, there are never examples given and most will proudly reveal that they never, ever watch O’Reilly. This discrepancy is a “nuance” overlooked by liberals who get serious talking points from comedians Bill Maher and Jon Stewart.
If you mention these things, you’ll just be called stupid, ending any chance at rational debate. Ignorance may be bliss, but it is also stale and very tiring.
