2010 Award for Ignorance ~

Disclaimer: This is a rant. This posting is a rebuttal to this piece from Reality Check.org: 2009 Award for Political Incorrectness: Calling out the Liberal Lies

WARNING : The irony of the piece Mr. Carey Roberts posted on RealityCheck.org is nauseating. "Liberal Lies" is a misnomer. After enduring 8 years of the Bush administration, I think we ALL are well aware what LIES are.

The author conveniently posts the online definition of "political correctness" but does not include one for "lie".

"LIES" according to Dictionary.com are defined as

"1. a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.
2. something intended or serving to convey a false impression; imposture: His flashy car was a lie that deceived no one.
3. an inaccurate or false statement.
4. the charge or accusation of lying: He flung the lie back at his accusers.
–verb (used without object)
5. to speak falsely or utter untruth knowingly, as with intent to deceive.
6. to express what is false; convey a false impression.
–verb (used with object)
7. to bring about or affect by lying (often used reflexively): to lie oneself out of a difficulty; accustomed to lying his way out of difficulties."

That sounds quite familiar to what we witnessed for 8 years. It was apparent. It was proven. It is a known fact that those in that administration LIED. During that era the lies were put forth repeatedly and unabashedly.

Politics is lying a lot. I am not naive. I am pretty sure previous administrations were not transparent about many things, but Mr. Roberts, and many who support this "Liberal Lie" theory and beef up the claims, are being deceitful.

Supporting anyone who would yell out in a public forum that our sitting President is "a lie" is treason. We all knew the Bush Administration was full of criminal lies and deception. From the suspect election fraud to misleading us to wars, Mr. Bush had to travel to the country he was being deceitful about to be rightfully disrespected {flying shoes}. I even hesitate to call Mr. Bush a lie and a cheat right now, simply because of how I was raised.

Shame on Mr. Carey Roberts. I have to say that based on the continuance of blatant disrespect that is displayed by folks of this sort, their actions are not simply political incorrectness as Mr. Roberts claims, but deeper than that.

Religious ideals should not encourage one to act ignorantly. There is never an excuse to behave rudely simply to get your agenda across.

Hypocrisy is rampant out of these folks mouths.

I do not promote censorship, but I do shout that these people need basic etiquette.

They are ignorant. They speak of being Christian, when Jesus Christ, who practiced the Judaic faith, embraced his fellow man. The leper and tax collector alike. He embraced Romans, Egyptians, and all he came across. He embraced his countryman, the very people these vile souls continue to label "terrorists". Really? I often wonder who the real terrorists are?

What exactly would they have done had Jesus graced him with his presence in the flesh?

I suspect, being from where he was {I think its called, oh yes, present-day Middle East} and probably looking the way he REALLY appeared, they would have water-boarded him and thrown him in Gitmo.

It is a sad assessment of their beliefs that they are so narrow of mind, loose of speak and boxed of brain.

These so-called patriots are the ones who sit in their front pews and claim to love their fellow man but go to any length to be an extremist {who does THAT sound like?}. It is very, very, disturbing.

People say "HAPPY HOLIDAYS", Mr. Roberts, because NOT EVERYONE IS CHRISTIAN! JESUS, if you recall, DIDN'T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS! I say this because one of my favorite quips is "What Would Jesus Do?".

Would Jesus kill an abortion doctor? Would Jesus say only rich deserve health care? Would Jesus kill people living in his neighborhood because they were gay? Shiite, Sunni, Arab, Muslim, Turkish, Palestinian, Jewish, African, Black, bald, disfigured, ill or had half a brain?

Would Jesus call the President "A LIE"?

People of the conservative persuasion, who write that they feel comfortable hurting the innocent, speaking ill of others and are overall without civility need to rethink their faith. I am beginning to think our current debates are not about the conservative's love of Christ at all, but Toryism.
