    The Immorality Of Contemporary Liberals

    You have a good acquaintance whom you’ve known for a number of years. Let’s call him Joe. You’ve shared barbecues, ballgames,  poker nights — you know, the usual stuff.   Maybe he’s even a co-worker.

    You then discover that he has spread widely a big lie about you that damages your reputation.   This is not an inadvertent or uninformed lie.  It’s deliberate.  He knows it’s a lie and spreads it anyway.

    Most of us would be shocked, outraged, furious — pick ’em.  If you don’t beat the snot out of him — which I don’t advise, but, man, it would feel so good — you’d never see or speak to him ever again. Your sense of morality, your conscience, wouldn’t tolerate continuing any connection to him. You would feel violated and betrayed.

    As far as we can define “typical,” his would be the typical reaction for people with a grip on morality. That’s most of us, I believe.

    Most of us, however, do not include liberals and progressives, a group that lives in the swamp of lies and deception and likes it there. To be kind to these defectives, they probably don’t even know that’s their address.

    How else to make sense of their continued support of the Master Deceptor, President Obama, when his ad accusing Romney of outsourcing jobs at Bain Capital was proven by countless sources to be a deliberate lie!  And the “Felon” charge, disproven many times, was also a big, deliberate lie.

    They felt no shame that their top swamp thing spewed in-your-face bulls**t to those of us who like to live in a cleaner place. They weren’t one bit embarrassed that he swam with scum in his quest for re-election. In fact, they liked it, reveled in it, supported it or spun it. They went on TV to continue the lie; their pundits pundited it in their columns and blogs. The best of them just ignored it. (There MIGHT be hope for this last group.)

    Die-hard liberals and progressives don’t become furious when someone whom they thought was trustworthy proudly and loudly betrays that trust. Nahhhhh! They don’t abandon such a person. He’s still their lie guy. They all live in the same swamp and for them this is sediment as usual. They’re comfortable with the slag, silt, dregs and trash that surrounds them and this is just another piece of familiar waste passing by their front door. Otherwise, why the hell wouldn’t they just say, “Enough!” and get out?

    But they don’t. Unlike our slandered gentleman above, they don’t care because they’re not like him. They have no conscience, no morality, no humanity. Only an immoral, bigoted zealot would tolerate such a deliberate lie.

    Is it no wonder, then, that we have, if not technically a lie, the unsubstantiated Brian Ross report about James Holmes and the Tea Party, the same story about the Gabby Giffords shooting, the NBC and ABC deliberate distortions in George Zimmeran’s 911 call, Dan Rather and countless other administrative and media lies of omission and comission?  Not at all.  It’s all in the swamp.

    “…in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”

    From James Murphy’s translation of “Mein Kampf.”
