Did you notice, bigotry, racism, and the war on women doesn’t exist on the right, it’s all a liberal creation to silence and crush conservatives. Everything opposed by Republicans is really not debatable.
No matter what liberal Americans do or say, they are dismissed as “the left.” You know, the “other.”
Charles Krauthammer just provided us with a bright shining example of dismissiveness, projection and a not so subtle reinforcement of just who the master-Americans really are. Ripping into a ridiculous petition to ban all anti-global warming commentary from the NY Times, Krauthammer envisions the roll out of the progressive totalitarian state.
Be amazed at the incredible projection, where conservatives continue to defend themselves against their own “unpleasant impulses, by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others." This is one of the most under-reported of Republicans characteristics , and an important revealing insight into how they think and what they want:
It perfectly illustrated my argument that the Left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It declares certain controversies over and visits serious consequences — from social ostracism to vocational defenestration — upon those who refuse to be silenced.
Oh, you mean like climate change doesn't exist? Or that the war on poverty is a failure? Or that supply side economics works? Those controversies are over, right? Krauthammer then suggests that the “herding cats party” mindlessly follows their leader, “King” Obama:
Sometimes the word comes from on high, as when the president of the United States declares the science of global warming to be “settled.” Anyone who disagrees is then branded “anti-science.” And better still, a “denier” — a brilliantly chosen calumny meant to impute to the climate skeptic the opprobrium normally reserved for the hatemongers and crackpots who deny the Holocaust.
If the name fits…? And yet when faced with the choice of perhaps hedging their bets on climate change, they chose to gamble with everyone lives. Playing it safe is for wimps.
You’ll notice Krauthammer’s attempt to rationalize his own insecurities and bigotry, by denouncing those who choose to call a rose, a rose:
Then last week, another outbreak. The newest closing of the leftist mind is on gay marriage. To oppose it is nothing but bigotry, akin to racism. Opponents are to be similarly marginalized and shunned, destroyed personally and professionally.
There’s also a major constitutional question, but that’s not Krauthammer’s point; rights should be decided by the tyranny of the majority.
Did you notice, bigotry, racism, and the war on women doesn't exist on the right, it’s all a liberal creation to silence and crush conservatives. Everything opposed by Republicans is really not debatable. Other unsettling laughable quotes:
Similarly, to question ObamaCare’s mandate of free contraception for all. Or try objecting to the new so-called Paycheck Fairness Act for women, which is little more than a full-employment act for trial lawyers. To bring suit, they need only to show that women make less in that workplace.
But the following really pissed me off, because it flies in the face of what we're hearing from Scott Walker, who dismissed the massive protest and recall election here. Reminds me of the message in the movie, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier:"
But the trend is growing. Oppose the current consensus and you’re a denier, a bigot, a homophobe, a sexist, an enemy of the people. Long a staple of academia, the totalitarian impulse is spreading. What to do? Defend the dissenters, even if — perhaps, especially if — you disagree with their policy. It is — it was? — the American way.
