Pelosi’s Pathetic Posturing

March 4, 2015

It is both moronic and hypocritical that many partisan Democrats complained of the “political theater” of Netanyahu’s speech to Congress after witnessing the despicable act Nancy Pelosi deliberately staged for the entire world to see. It is also sad that Washington has become such a putrid, political swamp.

One has never had to guess what stance Pelosi will take on any issue. She is a far-left liberal and a blind, partisan, Obama supporter and, therefore, very predictable. Why, then, did she feel it necessary to express her, and Obama’s, distaste of Netanyahu by turning her back in such a crude, despicable manner?

It is simply because she, like Obama, is an elite filled with a sense of “superior intelligence” and feels it necessary to denigrate anyone with a different opinion before it is seen to be more reasonable and acceptable than her own. In other words, it is fear of being challenged and found inferior. Pelosi made a career out of demeaning critics, sneering at criticism and, especially, making foolish statements. This was just icing on her ignorant cake.

It was not enough that Obama snubbed Netanyahu and practically threw Israel under the bus in his political eagerness for a deal, any deal, with Iran. Lap dog Pelosi felt it necessary to make it clear to all how low this administration’s regard really is for such a solid, longtime ally. She performed with gleeful pride, totally ignorant of her own ignorance.

It is hard to brush off Pelosi’s buffoon-like behavior as many do with vice president Joe Biden’s court jester antics because Pelosi comes with malice. She knows precisely what she is doing even though she makes it seem like it is off-the-cuff. It is not. It is off-her-rocker behavior, but it is deliberate. It is also very pathetic.

A Liberal’s Criteria for Being Black

November 11, 2014

“Professor” Darron T. Smith’s column about Mia Love over at the Huffington Post perfectly displays an elite, out-of-touch, liberal view on race that continues to be a detriment to the black community and the country. It also reeks of racism.

The title of Smith’s blog begins with “She looks black, but…” which is a despicable insult to any member of the black community. Mia Love IS black, she doesn’t just “look” black, and she certainly doesn’t need Smith to instruct her on how to be black.

Mia Love is a female Republican who beat out a Democrat to win a seat in the House of Representatives and it baffles Smith that any black woman could be a Republican. He believes that Mia, who belongs to what he labels the “fringe religion” of Mormonism, “represents one of the most discriminated-against racial groups in the country” and he can’t understand how she can “negotiate so many foreboding white contexts” and belong to a group that “lags behind in every major social indicator”.

The “professor” pontificates further, condemning Mia and others like her as being “out of touch with the political realities of African Americans” who are “the only group to vote their political interests”. This ignores the reality of the damage done to the black community by leftist policies designed to maintain dependency and the lack of any return for blindly voting as a bloc for the inexperienced Obama.

Smith has the audacity to say that Mia’s “accomplishment is quite dangerous for people of color”. The only danger it poses is to Smith’s narrow and prejudicial views. Mia’s accomplishment shows that breaking out of the black liberal stereotype is more than just possible; it is also liberating and promising.

It is hypocritical for Smith to utter such backward and prejudicial nonsense while considering himself to be a liberal champion for diversity. He has a pigeon hole for blacks, a pigeon hole for whites, a pigeon hole for women, and a very special pigeon hole for black women. What a sad, small world he lives in.

Michelle Losing Food Fight

October 30, 2014

Michelle Obama’s anti-choice campaign to make children eat what she wants them to eat is falling apart at the seams. Kids, parents, and school systems across the country have had enough of her government school lunches and are, literally, throwing them away.

The National School Board Association reports that since the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” was passed in 2010, 83.7% of school districts saw an increase in plate waste and 76.5% saw a decrease in participation by students. School districts are dropping out of the school lunch program (321 districts in 43 states in 2013) at an increasing rate, some opting to start their own lunch programs.

In typical government fashion, a one-size-fits-all calorie limit has been established leaving many kids hungry and many lunches unappetizing. Michelle Obama’s kids dine on chicken wings, Cuban sandwiches, cheese steaks, and meatball sandwiches at the elite, private school they attend, but her school lunch program for the masses doesn’t allow anything like that.

Under the federal guidelines, some lunches seem like a joke. In Chickasha, Oklahoma, angry parents complained about a so-called “Munchable” meal consisting of a couple of slices of lunch meat, a couple crackers, and two pieces of cauliflower. Many lunches are skimpy, unappealing and, for many, simply revolting.

Some students are boycotting the lunch program, a move that can cause a financial loss to the school and force a change. Many students are just throwing the lunch away. Sadly, under-privileged children who may not get another meal all day go hungry and receive far too few needed calories.

There has been little negative press for Michelle because, like her husband, she received unconditional media support. She also has the same elite, liberal mindset as her husband, believing she knows best what is good for all. She will now join her husband under the bus as it all comes crumbling down – as predicted.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

June 24, 2014

Hillary has taken a lot of flak for her claim of leaving the White House broke. Her attempt to ingratiate herself with the common man fell flat and backfired, planting her firmly and forever among the elite. Being out of touch with reality is a common trait of the elite and it seems that Hillary has passed that onto her daughter, Chelsea.

In a recent interview, Chelsea tried to compare herself to an average 34-year-old millennial bouncing from job to job trying to find a true calling. Leaving a $600K job at NBC (A typical job for a millennial with no experience, right?), she settled on working for her parents’ philanthropic foundation, saying she felt she had a calling for this work.

Not only does Chelsea seem blind to the enormous advantage she has because of her parents, she seems to have a need to pass herself off as “one of the guys”, just like her mother. She seems to have no clue, saying: “I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t”. Most would be embarrassed to admit this in public, understanding how such an elite, privileged viewpoint sounds. Chelsea, like her mother, doesn’t see it.

Those born with a safety net under them often do not appreciate what that means. Fear of failure is not a factor in their lives and money is not a constant source of anxiety, therefore, they lack an appreciation of the difficulties most face.

Chelsea, like her mother, is part of the elite. This is the same elite railed against by Chris Matthews when Mitt Romney, another elite member, campaigned for president. Now, hypocrite Matthews pleads for us to back off his beloved Hillary, asking: “Why don’t we accept them as they are, and stop making them like us?”

Perhaps acceptance first needs to come from the elite. Like mother, like daughter, Chelsea needs to appreciate how fortunate she is and learn to handle it with more dignity and grace. Chelsea is still young enough to learn but it is clear it won’t come from her mother.

Racist Victimization

May 6, 2014

Liberalism depends on the manipulation of emotions for political gain and it uses victims to tap into those emotions. Racism supplies victims and liberal exploitation of racism has harmed minority communities and fomented civil unrest throughout the country.

Treating people as victims not responsible for what they do is an insult, but this type of condescension brings dependency and, more poignantly, votes. Most in Black, Latino, and Hispanic communities oppose abortion, support traditional marriage, favor school choice, and agree with many conservative views, but “community leaders” and liberal elites ignore this.

For example, 70% of black voters supported California’s Proposition 8 defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman but the arrogant liberal establishment called them homophobes and bigots, considering it a betrayal. In the same way, successful black conservatives such as Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice are called “race traitors”, “Uncle Toms”, or much worse because they don’t toe the established liberal line.

This insistence on conformity is racist. In the past, white racists wanted blacks kept “in their place” and today’s liberal elites insist that their place is the Democratic Party. There is little difference. Years of this have conditioned many to mirror the liberal establishment’s idea of what an African-American should be. Thus, we find some treating those among them striving for achievement as “sellouts” who are acting white. The Hispanic and Latino communities are now being molded in a similar manner.

Martin Luther King’s dream of a colorblind society is a threat to today’s liberal elites. The race card is often the only card they hold on many issues and it is ignorantly brought out at every opportunity as a show-stopper. Voter ID, illegal immigration, deficit reduction, minimum wage, unemployment, abortion, and even global warming are seen as racial issues. Absurdly, even a dislike of Mexican food is being considered racist by some.

These communities deserve more than to be treated as victims. Until that occurs, this country will remain polarized, mired in racism, and unable to move forward.
