The Spring Bunny, 2015: Reprint (a cautionary tale)

Fluffy the Easter Bunny
R.I.P. Fluffy

We are coming to the end of another Easter season and the politically correct, leftist, Godless crowd known as progressive leftists (or something) are out in full force.  And it’s not Islamists who’re  making a fuss in Dearborn, Michigan.

So much tradition has been associated with Easter, the holiday that defines the Catholic Church.  We have Easter bonnets, Easter Seals, Easter Sunday, Easter baskets & cards, the great MGM film The Easter Parade — movie and song (written by a Jew, the great American, Irving Berlin.)  He gets it and he wasn’t even born here.

A few years ago, a victim  of the predatory, secular left was the Easter bunny.  See, these people have nothing in their lives except to stick their whiny buckets into their reservoir of complaint and come up with something else to piss people off.  Since 2007, they’ve been trying to replace the Easter Bunny with the Spring bunny because the Easter Bunny might offend some people.  Easter eggs have been redesigned as “spring spheres.”  You can find dead Easter bunnies in Walnut Creek, Ca., St. Paul, Minn and the Shops in Plano, Texas, where the Easter holiday is now the Spring holiday. More Easter bunny deaths are expected.

These holiday name changes are getting harder to keep track of than all the places renamed after Martin Luther King.

It will take awhile before people start calling this furry little rodent the Spring Bunny when Easter time rolls around. First, the President will have to change the name of it’s traditional White House egg hunt on their lawn to the Spring Egg Hunt or the Holiday Egg Hunt. The former name is preferable so as not to confuse this holiday with the holiday we hold in December.

Liberal Denial and Deceit

Been following the John Edwards story here in the Durham Herald Sun, a liberal rag laughingly called a newspaper, and I’m struck by the cravenness of this perfectly coiffed, despicable cockroach.

I’m also struck by the fact that this man was allowed to appear on the Democrat ticket as vice-President and then again allowed to announce and campaign for a run as president.

Are liberals & progressives – hard to distinguish them these days, so let’s call them Libgressives — a) stupid, b) insane, c) deceitful, d) liars, e) hypocritical, f) cynical, g) dishonest, h) deniers, i)  all the above?

The correct answer is “I.”

With definitions taken care of, is the Libgressive cabal in the Democrat party so (see “a” above)  as not to see through Edwards?

Yes.

Is the Libgressive cabal in the Democrat party so despicably   (see “b”, “c”, & “d”)  that they might have suspected what a scumbag Edwards was and STILL stood by him  even though he could have been inflicted as President on the country  should former bemedaled Vietnam veteran John Kerry have suffered PTST from the time he didn’t spend in Cambodia during the war?

Ohhhh, yeah.

Are libgressives so “g” and “e” as not to have come out in force against Edwards’ affair, his mendacity, his disregard for his dying wife and children.

A hundred times yes.

When I say “in force,” I’m talking about Larry Craig “in force,” the Republican congressman who allowed his foot to slip under his bathroom stall as an invitation  to who knows what?  That story had thoroughbred legs for quite a while, thanks to the parasitic delight of libgressives and the running dog enablers of the libgressive media.

OWS and the Soviets

The OWS phenomenon has reminded me of Sundays many years ago when my friend Koki Novikov would invite friends for dinner in her Brighton Beach neighborhood, an enclave for many Russian-Americans and recent Russian émigrés.

When there, I observed the unhappiness of many newly arrived Russian men.  This was not the famously chronic, brooding sadness of the Russian soul, but rather a sadness born of purposelessness.  At the time, they were drifting aimlessly, unable to engage liberty and clueless about how to handle the options of freedom.

Some were even wistful for the totalitarianism they left behind in the Soviet Union, where their lives were pre-determined.  They knew what they could and couldn’t do and took whatever comfort there was in the false security of its oppressive structure.  No decisions needed to be made, no real dreams to pursue, most were given a job for life and future options were few.  Meanwhile, the apparatchiks who controlled the system lived, well, like Wall Streeters.   (So much for the equality of Socialism!)

One can’t really blame them.  They were the last of the many generations raised in this system and it was the only way of life they knew and understood.  It’s natural that many of them would be at a loss when faced with unlimited freedom.

But I can blame the clowns at Occupy Wall Street.  Most were nurtured in the secular permissiveness inflicted upon the country in the 60’s.  The liberal culture of “do your own thing,” “if it feels good, do it,” “God is dead,” “try it, you’ll like it” and “let it all hang out,” seeded today’s crippling progressivism which is giving us the uber-government that’s slowly chipping away at our independence and limiting our freedom.  It created a cadre of intellectual apparatchiks, academic and governmental elitists who knew better than the “people” how we should live our lives.

Paul Begala and Venereal Disease

There’s a website called Liberal Scum and while I realize the political atmosphere has become extremely toxic, the expression Liberal Scum does give one pause.

Personally, I wouldn’t have been so complimentary.

Bush Derangement Syndrome and the Liberal cornucopia of hate is always striving to reach new heights of depthness. There must be a word out there for that particular depravity and I’m looking under rocks and bottoms of garbage containers to find it.

MoveOn’s General Betrayus ad was one of the more recent examples of their “scummy” challenges to the President and his policies. Harry Reid calling the President “a loser” to a civics class is another. But these examples were bottomed out recently by prominent Democrat, Paul Begala, on CNN, who responded to a Wolf Blitzer question about the election by saying that in some states President Bush polls lower than venereal diseases. And they say that the right is filled with hate.

So, the political battle has come to this — a noted representative of the Democrat Party assessing the popularity of the President by measuring him against venereal disease. No wonder the site is called Liberal Scum. However, if Begala is measuring political impact and electability with STD’s, we can play, too.

First, the electorate needs to be on the lookout for general candidiasis from all the Democrat candidates. This political yeast infection is not a true STD, but it can be contracted through contact with liberal virii and by pulling the Democrat lever on voting machines, which contain many strains of STDemocratisis.
