Today’s headlines illustrate the dark comedy (or comedic tragedy) that is liberalism, starting with Joe Biden, the poster boy for what liberalism can do to the human brain.
The VP flew to Vegas to tell a clean energy summit that failing to lead the world in renewable energy would be “the biggest mistake that this nation has made in its history.”
That’s a little melodramatic, to say the least. Considering the state of our economy and the hopelessness enveloping the nation, electing Obama and people like him (e.g. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, etc.) seems to easily trump any green failure on our part.
So does slavery, which – in addition to perpetuating reprehensible behavior and countless tragedies – led to the white guilt that helped Obama rise to power in the first place.
Not to mention that government-funded green efforts don’t work. Spain, for example, ended up sacrificing 2.2 regular positions for every green job it created… one of the many reasons it’s now so economically miserable.
Besides, flying to a green conference is like PETA eating Big Macs. And internationally renowned scientists just debunked the whole global warming myth anyway.
Moving on through the news, Representative Andre Carson, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, says the Tea Party “would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree.” Worse yet, he's probably stupid enough to believe himself.
I’m not willing to give that benefit of the doubt to the Wisconsin labor unions, who are banning Republican lawmakers from participating in a Wausau Labor Day parade. Since they largely fund it, Mayor Jim Tipple understands their right to act like bratty children if they want to… but he also understands his right to pull taxpayer contributions if they do.
No walk through today’s wacky world of liberalism would be complete without a shout out to the Department of Justice’s botched Fast and Furious operation, which purposely allowed Mexican drug cartels easy access to American firearms. The idea proved as stupid as it sounds when a Border Patrol agent took a fatal bullet from one of those guns.
Finally, there’s New York’s Playland Amusement Park, where some Muslims hopped up on liberal definitions of human rights got ticked off that their hijab-wearing women weren’t allowed on certain rides. For safety reasons.
So they threw disruptive hissy fits and got themselves arrested.
Good to know not everything is liberal in America.
