Those sleazy Republicans

 

I WAS BORN a Democrat. My parents were politically obsessed Democrats. My sister is one. My daughter is one. Both my ex-wives are Democrats. My grandparents, on both sides, were Democrats too. I was swimming in a Democrat Sea.

I was content with that. It made sense. Until …

I jumped the fence in 2007, but it had been brewing for years due to two things: First, the ballooning effects of Political Correctness back to the early 1990s. Political Correctness is a cultural cancer, the love child of Democrats, not Republicans. Second, the election of Barry Obama, but it was one element of his campaign that kicked me in the teeth.

That element was Rev. Jeremiah Wright and the revelation early in Barry’s 2007 campaign that Barry and Michelle had spent years sitting in a front-row pew of Wright’s anti-American, race-hate church. When Wright’s famous “God damn America” videos came to light early in the campaign, the action was swift and Draconian. Wright disappeared or, perhaps more accurately, was disappeared. Remember that?

It was my “Ah-Ha!” moment.

It was akin to those Stalin photos where political opponents were eliminated from the crowd. Wright was eliminated. And Americans, full of self-righteousness, elected their “first black president,” proving forever that racism was not in their hearts.

Except Obama is not black. He is biracial, as much white as black.

But that’s another, related, issue. America continues to delude itself. The nation still has to elect its first black president. Maybe one day. Likely be a Republican.

For the first time in my life I would have voted Republican. John McCain and Sarah Palin. Alas, some glitch in the absentee voting process kept me from voting that year. I was totally on board with McCain but in doubt about Palin. That has totally reversed. McCain turned out to be a vindictive turncoat, and Palin is a joy to behold.

Love that gal.

Like most Democrats I was largely ignorant of the two parties’ history. I was a newspaper guy! How did that happen? Because I was a newspaper guy. That’s how. The media have been inbred leftists for a long, long time.

And I was one.

But Democrats were the party of slavery, the Klan, Jim Crow, voter suppression and school segregation. Republicans were the party of emancipation, equal rights, school integration and the death of Jim Crow. Republicans today are about liberty and individualism. Democrats are about victimization and heavy-handed government.

Here are two five-minute videos from the great YouTube channel PragerU. The woman speaking is Carol Swain, a Vanderbilt University professor of political science and law. I know you leftists won’t watch because they are “inconvenient truths,” but you conservatives will enjoy them very much. Feel good about yourselves.

 

Stealing sweet words

THE LEFT IS remarkably talented at stealing and misusing nice words. The most egregious example of this is how they have convinced almost everyone to refer to them as “liberals,” something they decidedly are not.

Using the classic, accurate definition of liberal, I am one and proud of it.

This Prager U video does excellent work in showing the actual chasm between Western leftists and bona fide liberals. Leftists are not “progressive” either, but they have also convinced almost everyone that they are.

Many of the Prager U videos have been banned from YouTube, which is owned by Google, which is run by bogus liberals, i.e. leftists. Real liberals oppose censorship. Bogus liberals embrace it with a vengeance. Sad.

Sexual nincompoopery

PRAGER UNIVERSITY — PragerU as it’s called — is not a brick-and-mortar institution that offers degrees and such. It’s a media organization best known for its five-minute videos on what should be, but often is not, common-sense issues.

The outfit’s driving force is Dennis Prager who, during the 1990s, had a syndicated television show that I loved to watch when I lived in Houston, Texas. Prager is smart, articulate and entertaining. And he’s a very conservative Jew, so much so that he occasionally gets into controversy with his strict religious notions.

I ignore most of those notions because I really like the videos you find on PragerU’s YouTube channel. YouTube is less enthusiastic and does its best to silence him when possible. He’s currently involved, I believe, in legal action against YouTube’s censorship.

Let’s wish him all the luck.

The above video is a good example of PragerU’s common sense. Democrat “progressives” (insert chortle) advocate plenty of cultural lunacy these days, and one example is that there are oh-so-many sexes. Pick one that you feel is a good fit. Slip it on!

No, really. Don’t laugh. It’s true! They actually think that. And they’ll pound you into the dirt, figuratively or literally, if you say otherwise.

Sane people will tell you there are two sexes, but I maintain there are three. Male, female and deranged. And you cannot choose. The universe deposits you into one of the three categories. It’s out of your hands. With luck, you’re not in the third.

I landed in the first, but the second is pretty sweet too.

The Mohammedan truth

STRAIGHT FROM the proverbial horse’s mouth comes the truth about Islam.

Why do so many people who vote Democrat in the United States resist criticism of this demonic religion? And why do those same people vilify Israel, the only nation in the Mideast where women walk free … and armed.

Sad.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali believes Mohammedanism can be reformed. I think she is mistaken. First, it must be contained, then suppressed. This will not be easy.

It will be difficult in part because so many Western nations are now doing precisely the opposite, embracing the enemy. Really dumb.
