I would hear my friends on the left say how evil and horrible and racist and imperialistic and oppressive America is and I’d laugh to my self ‘ah they always say that they love America’ and then on 9/11 we were beaten up and I grabbed them by the caller and jumped up and said: ‘C’mon let’s help her lets help America’ and they say No she deserves it. and at that moment I realized they really DO hate America
Evan Sayett March 2007
Let’s go a little deeper into my thoughts concerning the professional/activist left from my last post.
I’ve been researching some old posts at Stacy McCain’s previous site for a project and one of the milestones was Smitty’s first post as a co-blogger on March 3rd 2009. This post linked to a speech by conservative comedian Evan Sayett called How Modern Liberals Think at Heritage that five years later is still not only still worth listening to but is eerie in its relevance today.
I thought of this after an exchange on twitter last night. The has been a sideline to the Brett Kimberlin story a clash involving Ali Akbar & Ladd Ehlinger where the latest punch was thrown last night. It’s my opinion the entire business simply empowers those trying to change the subject and last night a tweeter of the left using the Pseudonym P. J. Nicolatore with the twitter account .@nicoleGennette (no it’s not the actual lady Anthony Weiner was tweeting his junk to)

I was surprised to be included in this tweet as to my knowledge I’d never tweeted this fellow but wanting to keep things focused where they should be I countered:

Now lets me remind you again. Robert Stacy McCain is an American Journalist who for their own safety found it necessary to remove his family and himself from their home and state for exercising his first Amendment rights. To me that’s a blasphmey against the principles of America and it’s constitution, to the modern left, it’s a laugh line.
There was a time when the media/left would have been outraged over trying to silence a reporter for reporting a story.
There was a time when the media/left would have been outraged over firing of a Whistle Blower by the government.
There was a time when the media/left would be outraged over the death of a border agent due to a government program.
…or declaring Nobel Peace prize winner Lech Walesa too political for a medal of freedom ceremony.
…or attempts to silence bloggers that might get them killed
…or attempts to intimidate a black political activist into silence (background issues not withstanding)
…or protests AGAINST groups fighting child trafficking
…or a call for the destruction of places of worship of a religious minority
I know the objections to what I have said here. It amounts to an apology for identity politics. It elevates tribal obligations over the universal obligations we owe to each other as citizens. It licenses differential and discriminatory treatment on the basis of contested points of view. It substitutes for the rule “don’t do it to them if you don’t want it done to you” the rule “be sure to do it to them first and more effectively.” It implies finally that might makes right. I can live with that.
It is not an accident that during the cold war it seemed whatever side the US was on, the left was on the other. These people are a machine that is only about power.
Now I know plenty of people on the left, like my Arch Enemy friend Chris, my friends Mike and his wife, commenter Foible who this would certainly not apply to and I see some others online such as Dominic Nanni who are young mean well and have the potential to figure things in the end who this would not apply to out eventually. I suspect each of them would be properly upset at all the things above. Unfortunately the only people who can say that about left’s leading lights are those not paying attention.
Update: BTW let me point out that while the left is attempting to intimidate and silence Robert Stacy McCain, I never said they’ve succeeded.
In attempting to discover the identity of “Randy Hahn,” the #StopRush boycott leader Shoq sought the services of Democrat consultant Neal Rauhauser, the e-mails obtained by The Trenches show. Rauhauser provided the group with extensive documentation about a Houston man named Jason, whose surname was redacted in the version posted by Bayne. Rauhauser then mused about exposing the man to harassment by sending his personal information to online groups.
If Shoq’s claims are accurate, the latest reports may suggest multiple connections between the Limbaugh boycott, MSNBC, the Obama campaign, Democrat operatives like Rauhauser, and tax-exempt groups like Media Matters and Kimberlin’s Velvet Revolution.
In 2012 you don’t need a permanent home, just an internet connection to write.
Update 2: And more of the left as they are:
Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.
Remember these are the invited guests of the president
I’m sorry I can’t imagine a group of conservative Catholics doing that to Clinton or even Obama
