Arrogance and the Left
Did you ever notice how the left is largely like a flock of birds? They swoop in, crap all over everything, and then leave. If you have a conservative blog, chances are that you have experienced this phenomenon yourself and now moderate your comments. Unfortunately, the arrogance of the left does not end there. They believe that they are the only ones who possess the answers for societies ills.
Is there a man incarcerated for murder? Send him for a weekend furlough! Got a problem with your doctor? No worries, we will federalize healthcare! Poor and in need of a job? We will beggar the rich and give their hard earned money to you! Can't afford your rent? We will rent control all of the apartments in town! Of course, these measures bring about consequences.
For example, when the left loosed Willie Horton from prison he traveled to another state and raped and murdered a woman as her husband watched. Obamacare was passed by the Congress and signed into law by the President and absolutely nobody knew what was in the bill that was signed into law. In fact, people are still trying to figure out what is in the bill. I guess that's why Nancy Pelosi was grinning like a Cheshire cat when she was strutting through the crowd with that giant gavel as she was the one who intoned "...you will know what is in the bill when we pass the bill." Then there is rent control, that one measure has made the cost of living so high wherever it has been enacted that the poor can no longer afford to live in those jurisdictions. This is because nobody will build an apartment complex without setting the rent high enough to last for 20 to 25 years in a rent controlled town because they know that they will be forbidden to ever raise the rent on the current tenants. Then there is Gitmo.
Guantanamo base, also known affectionately as Gitmo, was ordered closed by the end of the first year of President Obama's term. After signing the order to close the facility, he next moved on to delaying the trial of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri while the process of military tribunals was reviewed by the White House. When a military judge refused to halt the proceedings against al-Nashiri, Obama ordered that the charges be dropped against him, preventing the families of the slain sailors from receiving justice.
The President's and Attorney General's motive for shutting down Gitmo and halting the military tribunals was so that they could extend the Constitutional protections to the terrorist combatants held at Gitmo. Today, if a terrorist is taken captive in the field the military unit capturing him MUST read the terrorist his Miranda rights prior to any questioning. Thus the United States of America no longer has a military, but a very large and well armed police force.
The left's steadfast work in dismantling our national intelligence efforts, stymieing the efforts to secure our borders, and arming and defending our enemies abroad places the United States in greater danger than we were in prior to September 11th. Further, the steadfast reluctance to deal with international terrorism has only emboldened our enemies worldwide.
The Obama administration has provided arms to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the murder of U.S. law enforcement personnel and has armed and given air cover to elements of Al Qaeda in Libya while the administration belittles and castigates Israel. While the President has said that he wishes to protect the citizens of Libya from a government that is killing them, that sentiment holds little value given that the U.S. has ceased all combat operations in Libya. Then there is the story coming out of Justice.
Eric Holder recently held a press conference where he blatantly said that he knows better than the Congress how to handle terror detainees. Attorney General Holder even goes so far as to claim victory in the trial of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani who was found innocent on 280 criminal charges and only convicted on ONE count in civilian court. One. The Department of Justice barely squeaks by in court by the skin of their teeth and Holder is extolling that case? It would seem that we are all living through an episode of the Twilight Zone.
Unfortunately for the deluded Mr. Holder, the Congress of the United States has firmly taken the position that there is no room for terror detainees on U.S. soil. Despite leftist arrogance and hubris, Gitmo will remain open and military tribunals are green lighted. With the fact that Obama kept water boarding for use on future detainees, we are right back to where George W. Bush was regarding terrorism. Chalk up one for common sense. While Michael Moore and people like Sean Penn grind their teeth in frustration regarding these setbacks, their arrogance has not diminished one whit.
They still attack Bush, they still attack Republicans and brand them as Nazis, they still plot to destroy the American economy so that they can institute a Marxist regime. In case you were unaware, the leftist leadership was recorded plotting to bring down Chase Bank by encouraging holders of Chase paper to not pay their mortgage payment. The crowd tittered as the scope of such a thing occurring became apparent. I don't know about you, but I never found starving people living in a shanty town amusing. A copy of the tape has been provided to Chase and the U.S. Justice department and is the clearest example of economic terrorism I know.
The left has never abandoned its desire for death and destruction. They will climb atop the bodies of those who oppose them and establish their personal utopia on your corpse. From the 25 or so million deaths envisioned by Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dorn back in the Sixties to the suffering of Americans in camps due to their designs to destroy the American economy, they have not changed. They are only pissed that they have to hide it. As Van Jones put it, "I gave up the radical pose for the radical ends."
By submerging their agenda they can pretend to be whatever they wish. Gone are the long hair, beads, and tie dyed shirts in favor of the clean cut business suit, but the ideology is still the same because their arrogance demands that it not change. They are always right after all.
This is why it is okay to forge scientific data, why it is perfectly fine to destroy the careers of those who would point out the fraud, and why they demonize anybody who is outside of their ideology and would dare to oppose them. For those who lose employment, suffer personal injury due to the attack of union thugs, or who suffer a loss of privacy or freedom, the left greets such victims with gales of laughter as evidenced by the laughter caught on tape regarding the suffering brought on by the economic terrorism described earlier.
The left can do no wrong, regardless of how many dead voters they have to use to win an election, and they are always right. If you don't believe them then simply ask them and they will be happy to tell you. Try to pin them down on any wrong doing and they will never admit culpability, but will happily try to shift the blame to a political enemy.
The smell of leftist arrogance is the acrid smell of bird droppings, and if you are not careful, the left will cover you in it.
