The repulsive stench of liberal hypocrisy

There’s a chapter in my book, Guardian of the Republic, called, “The Hunt for the Black Conservative.” In it I address how the liberal progressive Left will spare no efforts to demean, denigrate, destroy, and discredit black conservatives. The interesting hypocrisy is that if you are an acceptable black person — namely a liberal progressive — all manner of protections will be afforded regardless of how disgusting and heinous your offenses may be.

Take for example the abhorrent past and behavior of one Rev. Al Sharpton. If you don’t remember his Tawana Brawley episode, you can read about it here. FYI, this was during his obese, tracksuit phase. However, MSNBC is so proud of this charlatan, they gave him his own show.

In contrast, liberal progressives recently have attacked former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice claiming she is not qualified to be the commencement speaker at two universities, Rutgers and Minnesota.

Without a doubt the greatest evidence of liberal progressive socialist hypocrisy is the shielding of Barack Hussein Obama. Here is truly the most unqualified person ever to hold the office of president. He is indeed the nation’s first affirmative action president — considering the abject dismissal of his lack of accomplishments and papering over of his formative years.

Obama’s voting record as a state and US Senator is replete with votes of “present.” And his empty rhetoric and bumper-sticker slogans have resulted in America’s worst economic recovery and diminished global standing as a result of failed foreign policy.

Obama lies and deceives the American people at the drop of a hat — if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. And we all know 7.1 million Americans didn’t magically sign up for Obamacare — whatever sign up means.

But most despicable were his abandonment of Americans under terrorist attack to die in Benghazi and the use of a government agency, the IRS, to attack Americans who oppose his radical socialist agenda. But what do he and the Left say? These are just phony scandals.

It is unconscionable to me that the black community as a whole follows these white liberal progressive masters and the orders of their black overseers to remain on the new economic plantation and support the lies and deceit. And then they join in attacking their black brothers and sisters who are conservatives and have managed to escape this political servitude. Shameful.

I care not what liberal progressive socialists and their media accomplices think of me. Liberal hypocrisy has a repulsive stench. If they ever own up to the highest levels of honor, integrity, and character they’ll earn some respect. Unfortunately, that appears to be an unachievable goal for progressive socialists.

Take the plank from your own eye before you consider examining a speck in mine.

Mr. West why do you feel it is necessary to post lies about the president? There is enough negative truth to post. NOTE: “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” this is the TRUTH if your doctor is in the network of your health care insurance. If you need to change carriers ask your doctor which insurance he accepts and join that one. Or ask your doctor if they will join a coverage that you are thinking of joining. My doctors have pined two new health care providers at the request of their patients!

You seem to ignore the TRUTH that if you select a carrier you are LOCKED into that carrier until next open enrollment, it is not as easy as you make it sound, Obama DOES lie and is not an honorable person, yet the left just turns a blind eye to it and is like someone who is being sexually abused, saying he treats me good sometimes and will stay with the abuser, it is a form of mental illness.

Pharmacy has increased in many areas but this was not in whole due to Obama Care . The largest reason is the Pharmacy Companies and their patents for new medication. It takes so many years and trials before a drug can be approved the cost is astronomical. Pharmacy Reps were well paid to promote a new drug and Drs were given kick backs to prescribe them. They found that these were being prescribed for off label uses and created the many lawsuits from people who had adverse reactions. The patents prevent competition for a number of years of a generic… Read more »

We are not wealthy. Over time the higher deductible saves the copayments. My Niece started coming out ahead in March. It will of course take until the end of the year to determine the difference in costs but right now she is happy

The democratic party tried to remove God from their party platform at their 2012 convention.It was supported by their crowd. How is it that you say you believe in God but vote for a party that doesn’t, and doesn’t want anybody else to. Do you think God is alright with abortion. Do you think God wants people to have moral standards. All the things democrats push for are against any moral standards. Do you not see your President has been caught repeatly lying. He does it because he has no moral standards.

So you think if someone is a Democrat they have no morals? Kind of lumping everyone into one group isn’t it?

Hell no, but some Republicans and Independents did.

So you just accept ripping to pieces living human babies that have a beating heart. You feel no need to speak out for the living human baby that can’t. They did vote to take God out of the platform. They did boo God. The person at the podium ignored them and then they booed God. You tube it. It’s got to be there somewhere.

I have already discussed what happened at the DNC. Even the Catholic Website explained that is not what happened. Aside from that I don’t believe God can be removed. As for having an abortion I feel that is against my morals. So I have never had one. I wouldn’t try to convince another person to have one either.

The impression I get when I say I believe everyone must choose for them self I am told that If I believe in certain things I must take the same action of the other Christian person.
I don’t believe Christianity should be written into law.
But this doesn’t mean I have no faith.
Jesus left us with a choice.
He doesn’t force his will on anyone.

God’s gift to mankind was a “superior brain.” He had some expectation that mankind would use it logically and wisely. Try using yours logically sometime, you might like it better than being a follower or a sheeple. I’m not a Christian, but I do believe in a Supreme Being, I have morals, and I think the Christian’s Biblical Ten Commandments are much better than Allah’s Koran, particularly as interpreted and promoted by the Prophet Muhammad. At least I don’t go around hating, stoning, beheading, and killing people just because they have a different point of view than I do.

I didn’t mean to click “like” on your comment, Darla. I can’t find a way to undo it. I am 180 degrees away from your statement. Btw, if you believe in Jesus, He DOES expect you to conform to His

“A good Christian does not speak to someone else like that”

See I don’t think how Christians should talk to people either. I was taught to be an example , “People should want what you have”

That “it has always been that way.” is exactly what BO is trying to stomp out. That is what his “fundamentally change this country” is all about. Take what is proven and working and change it to something that won’t. Find out what the people like and need then put a stop to it.

I had to switch Doctors last year because of a change in Insurance.

You are naive, The plan is a single payer plan, the competition within the healthcare insurance business will disappear and the costs then can sky rocket. With the former Presidents the knew that competition was the best way to keep costs down. In this plan the government decides if you get the care you need NOT the Dr. In the other plans the doctor left it up to the patients if they wanted a certain procedure.

She had to go out of State to have the operation.

willie

Under the ACA she would have to have gone out of the country. Obama has done to the health insurance business what he did to coal fired electric generators; you can still build a coal fired plant but it’ll bankrupt you, the same will be with ACA because you will have to pay for any serious life-extending/sustaining procedures with cash, particularly if you are a senior citizen (of course if you are an illegal alien, it will probably be free) or a handicapped person.

Mr. Eich should never have stepped down. He is entitled to his opinion. The gays need to develop a thicker skin.

I am taking care of me. I believe in free speech as well and when a person states something that is not correct I am allowed to comment.

Which party seems to be the party wanting to respect individual liberty? Which party is only concerned about power over others? Answer these questions and you’ll figure out my point. It’s called thinking!

The Republican Party is concerned with limited government and individual liberty and the Democrat Party wants unlimited government and control over everyone. That is an easy question. I hope you don’t have a different answer because that is not thinking.

Progressive policies were so intrusive on individual liberties that Those early era Progressives did what any sly elite would do, They re-branded themselves with a name that made them sound like good men that stood for ‘LIBERTY” and WA,LA The name Liberal was born.

Democrats want smaller Government and personal choice. It is called experience. On a large scale we want the same things , how we attain them varies.

“Democrats want smaller Government and personal choice. ”

Name a single time democrats called for a reduction in gov’t. Name an agency they’d seek to abolish. Odd, democrats had huge majorities in Congress in 2009 and expanded the role of gov’t.

CU neuters the FEC and IRS. Sheesh, at least try.

You realize the gov’t isn’t corporations, right? Do you understand the difference between public and private?

Darla Buckland

I understand the difference but the right wing of Government and the Supreme Court doesn’t. They have already granted Corporate Person-hood to Corporations “On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government.

Make up your “mind”.

How is CU related to democrats advocating smaller gov’t? By expanding the IRS and FEC?

What part of the First Amendment’s protections Free speech has you perplexed? It is not the gov’t’s job to restrict free speech, get it?

“corporations are legal fictions”

LOL, corporations are fiction? Do you even understand why people incorporate their businesses? If unions ( unions are incorporated) have unfettered free speech why not business? Why are some corporations, “more equal” than others?

Darla Buckland
Guest

First of all the ‘Free Speech” translates under this rule as Campaign Donations.

I have already made up my mind , Corporate (speaking for the group vs. Personal ) and I choose Personal.

There are to many paid voices in Government already.
I defiantly do not agree with bricks and mortar controlling me.

It is still simple adding Corporations as people, is adding to the size of Government.

Ariviste
Guest

Instead the Democrat Party is controlling you. Confused?

gjsmith_62
Guest

So IBM getting larger increases the size of gov’t.

Is there any logic to your “arguments”? Do you know the difference between public and private?

Darla Buckland
Guest

Unions did not have unfettered free speech. They will now.

James R. Butler
Guest

Darla, I am confused, since when did Democrats want smaller govt.? It has been my experience that they want to control everything for everybody.

Darla Buckland
Guest

Personal choice is controlling people?
Smaller Government is embracing diversity allowing the peoples voices to be heard. Preventing the 1% from writing and passing laws. The rule that Corporations are not people. (which adds to a larger Government through revolving door politicians and lobbyists).

Ariviste

I think she is referring to abortion.

The_Patriot

I am sorry darla Democrats are for Large Government. Lots of dependency on big government programs like food stamps, EBT cards, obama phones unemployment. High Taxes. They want everyone to make the same money no matter whether they do a good job or not, no competition
Conservatives want individual liberty, small government, low taxes, capitalism, competition. they want people to make what they are worth

Darla Buckland

I am a democrat. I believe what conservatives tell me they want because they know their self better than I do.

We are supposed to have a 2 party system. That was supposed to keep things balanced.
We vote for a President not a King.
Regardless of party a person should still vote for the Betterment of Our Country.

Ariviste

People voted for a president and got a “wanna-be king”.

STFUTWIT

So where is it written that we’re SUPPOSE to have a two party system???

Darla Buckland
Guest

The 12th Amendment. We are not supposed to have a 2 party system we can have more than 2.

STFUTWIT
Guest

Where in the 12th Amendment does it state, specifically, anything political parties? This Amendment was designed to fix issues that arose during the 1804 Presidential election…..hence the Electoral College created…..

Darla Buckland
Guest

And it also changed the single vote between the President vs the Vice President to a single vote so they could be of the same party.
If there were no parties how could this be accomplished.
If you already knew about this you wouldn’t be asking the obvious.

STFUTWIT

Never said anything about a single party….and I like to educate folks when they comment about topics that are missing facts or misrepresent the actual information…..not being familiar with OUR Constitution seems to be a big problem, and ESPECIALLY with the current Administration……

Darla Buckland

The early Elections did not run the President and Vice President together on a single ballot.
Who ever won the election was President and the other was the Vice.

Or the Cross overs to run. I think Bernie Sanders would have been elected sooner if he went R or D.
Ohio ruled that out. In the Governors race only the 2 parties can be on the ballot. And wonder why I leaned left. It is different in different area’s.

I think that will change before long. The people are going to want more choices.

In Ohio? They just did it this year. We have majority Republicans in the State and they are out of control.
It was worse before the Presidential Election.

Look at what they have done that has been good for Ohio, I don’t like everything ours do in Florida, but sometimes it is good for the State and sometimes not. I look overall, not what they are.

See, just having discussions with you I can tell. You can always start your own Independent Party. Information and help would be online. Problem is, it’s not time for a third party to be elected, but I do think in the future it will happen, if things don’t change. That’s not saying an Independent can’t be elected locally.

Darla Buckland

I know and actually a lot of it was something social. But the main reason was when Obama appointed Richard Cordray . I signed up to be democrat right after that. If it had not been for him and his office I would have lost mom’s house.

And how many know that it was the anti slavery democrats that joined with the Liberty party to form the Republican party?

gjsmith_62

No, democrats were and are the party of Andrew Jackson. He appointed Taney and his was the majority opinion that said men were property.

Democrats, the party of slavery, secession, segregation and socialism.

It was the Whigs that formed the majority of the Republican party.

Darla Buckland
Guest
The Democratic Party was formed in 1792, when supporters of Thomas Jefferson began using the name Republicans, or Jeffersonian Republicans, to emphasize its anti-aristocratic policies. It adopted its present name during the Presidency of Andrew Jackson in the 1830s. In the 1840s and ’50s, the party was in conflict over extending slavery to the Western territories. Southern Democrats insisted on protecting slavery in all the territories while many Northern Democrats resisted. The party split over the slavery issue in 1860 at its Presidential convention in Charleston, South Carolina.Northern Democrats nominated Stephen Douglas as their candidate, and Southern Democrats adopted a… Read more »

Darla Buckland

In 1824 the Democrat-Republican party split 4 ways.
The National Republican party formed and later became the Whigs which fell apart in 1850 due to north /south slavery conflicts.
You can’t go back in History and stop when it suits your agenda.
The Republican party as it is known today was formed to abolish Slavery. It was formed by the split in the Democratic parties between the North and South. Had it not been for this the whigs would have stayed together.

STFUTWIT

Where do get your historical “facts” ….. more like hysterical….the Republican party STARTED to emerge onto the political scene in 1854…..which was made up of the Whigs, Free-Soil Democrats (North), Puritans, Abolitionists…….these are a few groups that came together to form the party…..I see you know your history as well as the Constitution…..LMMFAO

You can still do exercises in the shallow part until you learn. Being in the water will be great for your arthritis. It’s because water is bouncy and does not pound your bones.

Darla Buckland

They have classes for water exercise that doesn’t require you to know how to swim. I am ok in the summer but I have to work out more in the winter , I used to be able to keep up but not this year. I don’t want to have to take a lot of medicine so my only other option is to join a program..
It is starting in my left ankle. I am seriously considering writing and asking why exercise programs are not covered with health insurance. There is one that does but I can’t get it.

Ariviste

They are, at least with my last two companies. I don’t know about Obamacare. Go to your YMCA or YWCA and check.

Casper1974

Reba is right – your insurance won’t cover a gym, but lots of insurance policies cover physical therapy if your doctor writes an order for it.

Reba
Guest

Have your doctor order it with a script and they might cover it.

Darla Buckland
Guest

He is actually looking in to that. When you think about it exercise can prevent many medical conditions . So far it thought it has to be physical therapy which doesn’t offer the water exercises. I would have been in worse shape if I didn’t walk so much.

Some physical therapist include water exercise in their programs. Mine did for two days a week.

U.S. officer fined for harsh interrogation tactics Saturday, December 13, 2003 Posted: 6:16 AM EST (1116 GMT) TIKRIT, Iraq (CNN) — The commanding general of the 4th Infantry Division on Friday accepted a U.S. military investigator’s recommendation and ordered administrative action against Lt. Col. Allen West, who was accused of using improper methods to force information out of an Iraqi detainee. Following a military hearing, West was fined $5,000 over two months, according to West’s civillian attorney, Neal Puckett. The punishment does not affect West’s eligibility for retirement and pension, Puckett said in a statement. West, 42, will be assigned… Read more »

Did you not read the true account of the story of how West saved his regiment by forcing the man to talk, or are you purposely leaving that part out?

Earl Lee

You must didn’t read the part that the man didn’t give ANY information that saved ANYONES life!

Earl Lee

Yep…story so TRUE that his men got article 15’s, lost rank, lost pay and he was FORCED out of the military!

Hmmm…..something ESLE that your “illustrious” CNN doesn’t know about….UCMJ process…..and a beating doesn’t leave you without your head…..guess you missed those stories huh….I’ve seen what your “heroes” do to captured American troops…..

Take your ‘copy and paste’ and SHOVE IT…On the other hand….. Thank you Lt Col. Allen West for standing up for your men and your country!

So copieth and pasteth the zoot-suited stay at home and watch msnbc. libtard
I was in another area of Iraq in 2003, The above pasted account was a non-event compared to some things that went on over there. Kind of proves this articles point about a black conservative being ostracized.

Darla Buckland
Guest

Ostracized? He could have faced 11 yrs in prison and instead was fined, and allowed to keep his pension.
That is in no way a black conservative being ostracized.

Ariviste

I guess you don’t approve of saving the lives of Americans in his unit? Par for Democraps.

Darla Buckland

I don’t think like you do , your opinions of what I approve of , and what I do not can not be measured by your bias.

Ariviste

Nor yours. Thank God I don’t think like you do.

Darla Buckland

That’s good to thank God , the main reason I think like I do.

Once you get “fined” in the military, you’re upward mobility has ended. In the military you either move up or move out.

ShiekYerbouti
Guest
Yes , it was. By the standards of non-warrior Americans that may have seemed like an 11 year offense. But when you are stuck somewhere, in a hostile environment and someone is trying to kill you, you might have a different opinion. People got killed for crossing a road when they were told not to. People got killed for not “backing off when they were told to. War is not a politically correct made for tv moment. You keep your troops and yourself as safe as you can at any given moment. And bizarre situations pop up quickly and everyday.… Read more »

Again read my comments before making yours. It helps to know what you are talking about before you start.

Ariviste
Guest

Yes, it does, Darla. Maybe you should consider your own advice. It really helps to know what you are talking about.

Darla Buckland
Guest

Helps even more when my statements can be verified as 100% true , unbiased, and mature.

Darla Buckland
Guest

I only said he was not Ostracized because he is a black Conservative.

I have no judgement on the actions or what the Court decided.

Thanks only to the general. The POS investigator is from libtard ally… If the general was of same mindset that Obama will only allow among generals, the ostracism would have continued to the leftist’s & Obama’s intended conclusion.
Muslims only understand aggression. Numerous terrorist threats were neutralized due to methods like waterboarding.
Darla! Really? Are you another Libtard or don’t you understand practically anything?

Ariviste
Guest

Both. She is another Libtard and she doesn’t understand anything and doesn’t want to understand anything.

Darla Buckland

I understand that my statement was correct. I always can verify my facts by the name calling of the person who comments back.
When proven wrong call people haters and other despicable terms.

Ariviste

Call them as you see them.

Another example: let’s say you and your men get ambushed by the enemy while on a rush mission to bolster another unit that is pinned down.Your unit prevails and the attackers are stopped. You notice that a couple of the attackers are barely alive and by regulations you must stay with them until a medivac arrives. The other unit is still pinned down and your fellow VOLUNTEER soldiers are being killed. What do you do armchair
quarterback?.

Darla Buckland
Guest

Read my comment above. It is up to the Courts to decide in a fair trial.
West had his Court.
They did not pick on him because he is a black conservative.

Ariviste
Guest

Stay with them until it goes to court. LOL

ShiekYerbouti
Guest

I would argue that. My point is that there was many many more unpalatable examples of military overreach that I saw with my own eyes that never even garnered more than a battalion level notation in a logbook.

Darla Buckland
Guest

I won’t argue that either. I wasn’t there . I only wanted my point to be recognized for what it was.
Had it not been for the General he could have been Court Marshaled .

Mike Hobgood
Guest

LMMFAO…..that’s Court Martial…..and since Mr. West was a Field Grade Officer….then a Court Martial takes a General Officer to ultimately convict or pronounce innocence…..since you OBVIOUSLY didn’t know…..and West IS innocent, end of story…..you libs really love beating a dead horse…..huh.

Darla Buckland

Try reading my comment before you reply . Your reply would be considerably less ignorant.

He must have been targeted by a p*ssed off boss. Something like that should never have seen the desk of any prosecutor
Yerbouti out,

That could have been as well.

Al Sharpton is a race baiting opportunist.
That he is being taken seriously by any political party is shameful.
I lean left, but I’m a moderate with a few right leaning beliefs.

The DNC embracing hucksters like Sharpton drove me away from the Democrat party.
The GOP, unfortunately, has embraced too many hucksters on the far right for my tastes.
So, like many Americans, I’m an independent, because the major parties have gone to crazy town.

@Brendan We have a divisive President who calls out the Republican party at each and every failure of “his” admin. Shall I list them? I live in Indiana, a state that is doing better than most because we’ve hired the right people to represent “we the people” I personally welcome your left leaning vote which to me sounds very logical, well informed,and not prone to race baiting “Saul Alinsky” tactics. I am a constitutional libertarian leaning republican who attended my first political event this weekend at FreePac Kentucky. I agreed with 90% of what I heard and I agreed with… Read more »

Name the national figure on the right as vile as Sharpton or Jackson.

Judging by the political views you expressed in your comments, I don’t think you and I would find the same people vile.

Divisive self-serving huckster lying conspiracy spreading opportunists like Hannity, Levin, and Limbaugh for starters.

And when did they run for office? How about a quote of them saying something vile?

Jackson recently said Hiroshima was immoral.

Sharpton had Freddie’s torched, aiding and abetting murder.

Look at what the line reads above.

Sharpton was embraced by the DNC because his actions in the 70s and 80s were relevant to continuing the civil rights movement. Someone who is older (like him) was raised to stand up for the rights of Black People. While today it is seen as race baiting it was necessary in that time. He was also a baptist Minister and they are very outspoken on their stands. ex. Hobby Lobby. He is not a major player in todays DNC but he is respected for what he has done. “Sharpton rose to national prominence in December 1986, when three black men… Read more »
