Personal Attacks From The Left

Suddenly, it seems, it has become fashionable for the left to launch personal attacks on conservatives.

Don't get me wrong. I understand that personal attacks have been going on (both ways) for a long time. But generally speaking those kinds of attacks don't get much air play, and are not supported by others, even those with the same viewpoint.

The Daily KOS has been a hate filled, venom spewing tool of the left for years, but not many people pay attention to it, except those on the left who want to tear down everything America stands for, and those on the right who want more people to notice the hate coming from it.

The left would like us to believe that Rush started it all. With his comment that he wanted to see Obama fail, every card carrying liberal in America tried to make mountains out of molehills. But anyone who analyzed what Rush REALLY said, understood that his comments were not a personal attack on Obama, nor were they a desire for Americans to suffer. His comments were simply an expression of disagreement with the political viewpoint of Obama. He wanted Obama's policies to fail because he believed they were not in the best interest of our country, and he said as much.

But since January 20, the attacks from the left have been vicious, hateful and relentless. In the last couple of weeks, these attacks have escalated. The attacks from the left toward Carrie Prejean have had about as much intelligence in them as a child eating dirt. If the same things had been said toward Obama as have been said toward Prejean, the Secret Service would be having some "private discussions" with the attackers.

Then we had the White House Press dinner in which the left had a field day with conservatives. Traditionally, the Correspondents dinner has been a time where the Press gets to make fun of the president, and he takes it in stride. But this president is too good for that. So Wanda Sykes has to wish that Rush Limbaugh's kidneys fail, after she calls him a terrorist. In appropriate comments were made about George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, John McCain and others (though they didn't get as much press).

Personally, I hope the left keeps it up. I don't think the American people think this is funny, entertaining or appropriate. I also think it will particularly turn off the moderates and the uninformed voters that decide elections.

"...the Secret Service would be having some "private discussions" with the attackers."

They are already having these sort of 'discussions' with people who have bumper stickers that read "Don't Tread on Me" or anything pro-gun or anti-abortion. There is another organization that leaps to mind that behaves the same way towards it's citizens. They are called the chekists or more commonly known as the KGB.

Just because the wall came down doesn't mean they went away. America is headed towards that way as well. Get ready for Obama's secret police force.

I think the Wanda Sykes thing was the Press's fault. They decided not to make fun of Obama this year, and to make fun of Bush.

Hopefully next year the Correspondants will have better taste in comedians.

This is what happens when either side of an issue lacks the intelligence to engage in a meaningful discussion. The topics of debate appear clear enough to me: we either support our Constitution, or seek to undermine it in order to adopt a foreign political philosophy that will lead us to European socialism. Personalities have nothing to do with this, but ideology does. We are, in the final analysis, the sum of our experiences. On the one side, there are those adopting the ideas of men such as Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky. On the other, those who remain dedicated to the wisdom of our founding fathers. Wishing that Limbaugh dies of a liver disease does not advance this debate, and therefore, it seems to me, a waste of time. Thank goodness for our failed educational system, otherwise we would not be a nation of citizens easily fooled by political rhetoric.
