091103 - Al Gore speaks

  1. November 9, 2009 4:13 pm

    The average modern Liberal (mL) cannot discriminate between right and wrong, good and evil, what works and what does not. The power of discrimination, the ability to select from among two or more options the one BEST option, is simply unavailable. This renders the modern Liberal incapable of taking a moral position – ANY moral position.

    From the Daily KoS, LeahLB describes Major Nidal Hasan as a “…mentally unstable American that snapped.” After all the evidence collected thus far, only a modern Liberal would characterize Hasan as someone who just “snapped.” Hasan was not hiding in plain sight. He was very open about his jihadist tendencies. He advertised his Islamism on his business cards. He cancelled the lease on his apartment two weeks prior to his well-planned executions at Fort Hood. He gave away his furniture. He handed out copies of the Koran to his neighbors. But if you’re reading a regular visitor to NewsRealblog, you already know all this stuff.

    Back to my point – The modern Liberal (mL) cannot discriminate. Period. Doing so would cause the mL’s entire conceptual framework to fall in on itself, like a house of cards. There is no “right.” There is no “wrong.” There is no “good.” There is no “evil.” Evan Sayet sums it all up nicely:

    If nobody ever thought they were right, what would we disagree about? If we didn’t disagree, surely we wouldn’t fight. If we didn’t fight, of course we wouldn’t go to war. Without war, there would be no poverty; without poverty, there would be no crime; without crime, there would be no injustice. It’s a utopian vision, and all that’s required to usher in this utopia is the rejection of all fact, reason, evi­dence, logic, truth, morality, and decency–all the tools that you and I use in our attempts to be better people, to make the world more right by trying to be right, by siding with right, by recognizing what is right and moving toward it.

    To the mL, there is NO OBJECTIVE DIFFERENCE between jihadist scumbags like Hasan and the selfless female police officer Munley who put a stop to his cold, calculated murder spree. And after years of leftist indoctrination in government schools, the mL will inevitably conclude that Hasan was the REAL victim in all this because, as we all know, America is a racist country.

    LeahLB concludes her mindless screed thus:

    Why wasn’t there an outrage by Joe Lieberman and his Fox/Rush/teabagger friends then? Well, for one thing it was on GW’s watch, and they were all white boys from Amurika. This type of call to racism against a faith is a recipe for despicable violence in the name of “JEEsus“.

    God help us all.

      We’re already on it. Read NewsReal tomorrow morning.

      It wouldn’t surprise me if he might still be a guest on occasion. As long as he’s not a salaried contributor raking in 30K a year and showing up multiple times a week.

    There are some people in the army that need to be fired over this and Casey should be forced to resign. They knew this guy was a risk he had received a bad OER. which would have ended the career of anyone else yet they premoted him to major because he was a protected species. I have to go to the vomitorium.
