…doesn’t make it go away, a point David Marcus makes quite well when writing of customers’ reactions when a Brooklyn store played the Lynyrd Skynyrd group’s rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Progressives have never listened to a large part of America, and they convinced the Democratic Party that it need not listen either, because they had ensured that changing demographics, via legal and illegal immigration and lax or non-existent voter ID requirements meant working class voters no longer mattered. Sure, you can turn off the voices, but somewhere they are still speaking, and it is not just in the Deep South or flyover country that Skynyrd is still playing somewhere.
What we as a nation have narrowly avoided by defeating Queen Hillary is losing our right to resist. The Left, because it employs belief rather than logic and reason, can tolerate no dissent. How can you contemplate an argument if you know that you can not defend your position? You can not, so you try to stifle dissent, silence any opposing voices.
This is what the Left has been doing for decades, what His Oneness was continuing, and without question what Queen Hillary would have accelerated with a vengeance. But make no mistake — progressives and leftists have embedded themselves, by design, into all of our country[‘s institutions and government agencies, and they will fight like hell to maintain the status quo. There may not be an open insurrection, but it will more likely be what the bureaucrats will employ — stalling, stonewalling, slow-walking, failure to act. The time for vigilance is far from over.
How can a cupcake be racist? If you are a progressive, you see racism lurking everywhere, in everything. Of course, this attitude exposes the logical inconsistencies in the progressive point of view, and this story is a perfect example. A bakery owned and operated by a woman who is herself biracial, is accused of racism because one of her best-selling cupcakes, which contain an Oreo cookie, was called The President.
The poor small business owner has changed the name of the delicious confection to The Professional to try to quash the manufactured and hideously misplaced faux outrage. She also had another cupcake sold as The Intern, which featured blue icing, and apparently people decided that referred to Monica Lewinsky, Bill Clinton’s intern.
Progressives constantly claim that blacks and other minorities can not possibly be racist, because they are minorities and therefore victims, yet claim this woman is racist. Therein lies major hypocrisy and downright stupidity.
This test will tell you, just in case you are uncertain of your own diagnosis. It also serves as a useful guide to what progressives actually believe, or claim they do until one of their beliefs pinches their own ass too painfully.
Absent a brain injury, I am not capable of becoming a progressive, because I see the world as it is and employ logic and reason. I think as well as feel. Progressives must continually deny and avoid reality lest their pointy little heads explode. Frankly, that’s too much work for me!
…that large donors are bailing out on the Democratic convention. Gallons of ink were spilled by MSM touting all the donors who declined to pony up for the Republican convention now underway in Cleveland, but how much will the Democratic side of the coin get mentioned? Not much, I suspect. Supposedly the decline is because the host committee’s request for an IRS exemption was turned down. The fact that the Democratic candidate is such a disaster might also have a tiny bit of influence in the matter.
The walkout at the Netroots convention this weekend, fueled by progressive activists, obviously has Democrats far more worried about the Clinton candidacy than any of them are willing to admit.
…on patriotism. I freely admit I’m not a fan of Facebook. I use it mainly to see cute pix of family and friends, but little else. Facebook’s CEO, the highly touted Sheryl Sandberg, is as ignorant of the Constitution and the principles of free speech as His Oneness and most other liberals and progressives, and like them, she believes she should be the moral arbiter of what is proper and correct. Horse feathers! I may start posting obnoxious things just to annoy her.
