I've always believed that liberals, for the most part, happen to be idiots. With the exception of a few, the great majority lack the ability to think for themselves, frequently parroting the slogans and absurdities that spew forth from the mouths of those few who do happen to have some modicum of intelligence. Problem is, those "few" are usually liars, like the Clintons, Obama and the bulk of the Democratic Congress, which makes them idiots, too, if they think they can hoodwink those of us savvy enough to not buy into their lies and foolishness. But most of your rank and file libs have absolutely no clue, and like proverbial lemmings tow the party "lies".
Friday confirmed it, all over again.
I was driving to the theatre late Friday afternoon, and lo, by the side of a major drag, was a rag tag group of people, young and old, with scribbled "Impeach Bush/Cheney" signs (and other idiocies), stupidly grinning and waving at the passing cars. I happened to hit a red light and there, to my right, were 2 of the protesters, an older man and woman, smiling joyously. I thought to myself, how pathetic, rolled my eyes and shook my head in disgust. The man noticed my gesture of disdain, and started mouthing the words, "Did - you - vote - for -Bush?" I nodded "yes", fully cognizant of the fact that this would annoy the heck out of him. I know, I'm bad, but I just couldn't resist rattling a liberal.
So, I sat there, stewing, for a few seconds more (an hour's commute sorely tests one's patience), then finally rolled down the passenger window, leaned over and asked: "Don't you have anything better to do?!" There was a moment of horrified silence, after which the woman, in an accusatory manner, blurted out "You voted for Bush!!??" I gleefully nodded yes, and with great vehemence she shouted back, "Well now you're paying for it!!" What?? Paying for it?? Wondering what brilliant response she would have, I asked, in what way, and the woman, with a look of incredulity, screeched "Gas prices!! Food prices!! All those deaths!!" Yep, there are people out there who actually believe that George W. Bush is personally responsible for all those things. The same people who believe he was responsible for Hurricane Katrina; including those loons who actually believe the US government sabotaged the levies. And those who believe that Bush and the U.S. government were complicit in 9/11, and God knows what else. They might as well blame him for all the world's woes, and their own, for that matter. How about tacking on global warming, weather disasters, the world's food problems, their E.D., their divorces, crime, whatever bad is happening in the world, blame it on Bush. And the pathetic thing is, they probably do. Thankfully the light turned green, and I had to drive on, because Incognito was in a fighting mood, and I know who would have won. It wouldn't have been pretty.
Then, on my way home, I forced myself to listen to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's 1 hour invective-filled rant, as physically painful as that was. This was the self-same sermon the good Reverend claims those infamous "G-D Damn America" snippets, we've all heard, were taken out of context from. I do not suffer fools lightly, and I thoroughly resent being taken for one, which is what Wright and Obama are trying to do with the American people. Wright claims he is not political? Ha! This particular Sunday sermon was nothing but. Wright, another liberal, wacko, loon, pretty much damns the U.S. and the U.S. government throughout. More a leftist, black-power, political diatribe than a religious sermon, Wright, too, blames the U.S. government for everything, including creating the AIDs virus to kill black folk. Let's blame that on Bush too, why don't we. If you have the stomach for it, it's well worth a listen. It suddenly makes sense why Michelle Obama would claim that this was the first time she has ever been proud of being an American, and proves, without a doubt, that Obama was very aware of what was going on in Wright's sermons, all these years. Which just makes him a big 'ol liar, another typical politician, like all the rest of them; not the saviour of the U.S., as he purports to be. And yet, people will still vote for him in these last few primaries.
After an hour of poisonous, hate-filled preaching, I arrived home feeling nauseous, and it wasn't my driving.
There are people out there who are willing to believe anything, because it's easier to believe lies than to think for themselves. It's easier to believe lies than to give up their hatred- of Bush, the Republicans, and anything conservative.
God forgive their stupidity.
