That was Rush’s theme today on his radio show – focusing mainly on the global warming scam, and it’s a theme I’ve been mulling over for the past few days: The left’s universe of lies. The false narratives they create with the help of their allies in the media to pass their leftist agenda.
In just the past few weeks, the left’s strange universe of lies has been made plain to anyone with eyes to see, most notably in the area of climate science, (see Doug Ross for an excellent summery of “Climategate”) but in other areas, as well.
Take the Fort Hood shooting, for instance. The truth of what had happened was made obvious when the name of the perp, (Nidal Malik Hasan), and the words he uttered during his murderous rampage, (allahu akbar!) came out. Within hours of the shooting, more incriminating information about the shooter’s background, (red flags, if you will) was discovered on the internet. Within days, even more – everything from the letters on his calling card, SOA (soldier of Allah), to his “unexplained connections”, his Islamic harangues at Walter Reed, to his strange poverty despite his good salary, were brought out. Unnamed sources said things like: “everybody felt that if you were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, you would not want Nidal Hasan in your foxhole.”
Yet we were asked to “not jump to conclusions. Leftists tried to peddle the patently ridiculous theory ( read: lie) that he was suffering from “secondary post traumatic stress syndrome”, based on his experiences as a psychologist treating soldiers at Walter Reed. That canard was effectively shot down by Charles Krauthammer, who was a psychologist by trade, before he became a political columnist.
So why the ruse? Because one of the crucial planks in the left’s poisonous worldview is “diversity”; that “diversity” is in and of itself a great thing, which must be protected at all costs, even if it kills.
The truth? “Diversity” is a difficulty to be overcome, not an advantage to be sought. Yes, I said it, but Ann Coulter said it first. Diversity isn’t a bad thing, but it can and does lead to conflicts, which is why the left loves it so. That’s their whole strategy, as in: Cloward-Piven.
The left’s universe of lies has led to the desired outcome: Nidal Hasan will likely plead not guilty by reason of insanity, with radical Islam in America taking a backseat to poor Hasan’s mental health issues.
Has anyone yet heard a coherent justification for the terror trials in New York City? No? That’s because there are none, unless you think that impugning the previous administration and weakening America is justification. The left does…but it can’t say so out loud, so they blather on with their high minded rhetoric about “the rule of law”, and “our American values”. We know it’s b.s. They know it’s b.s.
Obama gets to claim the moral high ground as he tries the Bush Administration by proxy, all the while, with plausible deniability, disavowing that that was his intention. At the same time, he will have the opportunity to play the no lose game of taking credit for convictions and credibly casting blame on Bush if he fails to get them.It is the perfect leftist paradigm. Expose the United States to criticism and ridicule and cast it as a positive evil in the world. Make the political calculation that you can, at once, discredit your political opponents and take credit for trying to elevate the national reputation in the eyes of the world.The national interest be damned. What is important is its denigration and the political advantage to be gained by the ideology that has tried so long and, until now, so unsuccessfully, to weaken the last, best hope of man on earth.
ACORN: Has there ever been a more damaging organization to this country than these miscreants? Have ACORN not been proven to be so thoroughly corrupt that even most Dems are loath to come to their defense, these days. Their spokespersons lie profusely, effortlessly, shamelessly…it’s what they do to to keep their heads above water. That’s the Alinsky way, as the NEA will tell you: Ends justify the means. Yet, the danger remains that the spigot of government funds will be turned back on, so they can continue with their nefarious activities, and thus far Attorney General, Eric Holder has been as anxious to investigate ACORN’s illegalities as he was to investigate the The New Black Panthers voter intimidation case; which is to say, not at all. As many blows as ACORN has had to suffer to its reputation this year thanks largely to Andrew Breitbart, Hannah Giles, and James O’Keefe, it may still survive. ACORN has friends in high places.
Back to Global Warming. Wouldn’t you think that the hacked emails showing a conspiracy of deception among the climate scientists who are leading the charge of disastrous man made global warming, would be the top story in all media?
Global Warming Report Finds Time Running Out
26 Scientists Say Assessment Gives World Leaders Solid Data for Climate Summit
There’s even less time for humanity to try to curb global warming than recently thought, according to a new in-depth scientific assessment by 26 scientists from eight countries.
A universe of lies. They’re wallowing in it.
Doug Ross got a huge kick out of this headline in the Boston Globe:
Boston faces deep risk from sea level rise
Brace yourself Boston: Sea level rise from climate change could jeopardize Hub assets worth $463 billion.
Courtesy of the World Wildlife Fund, of all things. Yeah, them.
The good news is, Boston Globe readers are having none of it. Their comments are a crack up.
MORE on Climategate:
It’s gratifying to know that Michael Mann and Phil Jones are now laughingstocks, but I think it’s safe to say, as with ACORN, the climate change shysters are not going to go away quietly.
Another example from the left’s universe of lies, and I see Mike at Cold Fury is on the same wavelength as me:
Michelle asks a silly question: “When will the Left retract the Kentucky census worker case smear?” I’d say the likely response is that they don’t know what you’re talking about, it never happened, and it was three other guys anyway. Alternatively, it could be the day they grow an honest bone in their bodies, when they discover integrity for the first time, when their cognitive dissonance allows them to recognize their own hypocrisy, when they truly do become a reality-based community, and the day the devil straps on ice skates. Not necessarily in that order either, because that last is way likelier than any of the others.
Update! The good Professor Jacobson has a partial — and only partial, mind — list of people who are now indebted to the tune of scarfing down one (1) big, fat, heaping helping of crow and offering up one (1) big, fat, humble apology for their vile douchebaggery. And who, you can be sure, will never, ever trouble themselves to pay up.
Which, y’know, is why we oughtn’t be holding our breath for any contrite acknowledgment from some of the same people over the global warming scam, either. Being a liberal idiot means never having to etc etc.
