BREAKING VIDEO: RI State Senator to Gun Rights Supporter: “Go F*%k Yourself”
In the previous post (LBJ: I’ll have those n****** voting Democratic for the next 200 years), I concluded with a question:
Their tactics have long been to hold themselves out as having superior compassion for the plight of man, and to accuse their opponents of lacking that compassion.
Our response has long been defensive—to say, “No, we’re compassionate too—look, see—our policies work better. No, really, they do.”
Is it now time to stop defending our compassion and, instead, start questioning theirs?
How long do we continue starting every debate by ceding them the ground that they “mean well.”
Why should we give them that, after 100 years of evidence to the contrary? Might it not be time to take a new tack—to question their compassion the way they question ours. Does anyone who pursues the same failed, hurtful, oppressive policies over and over for more than a century deserve to be given the deference that they “mean well”?
I am starting to think the answer is no. Yes, that might make for some unpleasant discussions, but maybe it’s time for some unpleasantness.
The Great Society metastasized poverty and dependence into the tissue of American society. It shredded families, and crushed innovation, self reliance, and dignity. It created generational dependence and a permanent lower class, one that free markets and human innovation was in the process of slowly eliminating. There is more harm in the welfare village than is dreamt of . . .
And yet, on the eve of the launch of the Great Society, President Lyndon Johnson confided in aides as to its real purpose: “I’ll have those n****** voting Democratic for the next 200 years,” he said.
Perhaps that is the real face of the left. And perhaps it is time that we start saying so at every turn, rather than bowing to their supposed superior compassion and meekly asking them to acknowledge that we’re compassionate too.
Well, add THIS GUY’S foul-mouthed mug to the real face of the left.
