Let’s Play Cherry Pick With Charlie!Posted: June 27, 2012
Yes sir, Charles is at it again. In his posting entitled: “Texas GOP Releases Platform, Goes Full Wignut” he strains his little stepladder once again to pick out the bits that he finds to be the most savory. I would like to take a few moments to trundle through this morass of intellectual roadkill to dissect this nonsense:
Okay, the rungs begin to groan under the pressure with:
And what is the problem here? The Republican party has never made any bones about its religious background; the very founding of the Republican party was promulgated on the abolition of slavery as commanded by God. So we have no surprise here.
Call me an ignorant rube if you’d like. I guess that I am too overburdened by the sheer weight of my guns and God to be able to grasp the issue with this. All sarcasm aside, in a free enterprise society one needs the government and its virtually limitless resources to stay the hell out of the way.
Note here where Charles emboldens the text:
Notice how he ignored the bit about undermining parental authority? Well in the mind of Charles the gub’ment is a much better parent than you are, right? The avaricious, double dealing old bastard would have his own ideology influencing your children before you exercise your own right to raise your child the way you want to. Interesting, coming from a guy who has never raised a child in his life.
Now notice how Charlie picks:
But conveniently left out the line prior to it, which states:
“We support equal suffrage for all U.S. Citizens of voting age who are not felons. We oppose any identification of citizens by race, origin, or creed and oppose use of any such identification for purposes of creating voting districts.”
Some of the next parts are paraphrased for space.
So one’s right to privacy ends where his right to be nosy and interfere with the upbringing of my son begins? I don’t think so.
Presumably he is taking umbrage with intelligent design being taught in school, yet I don’t see it mentioned here. Since it isn’t, we can assume that he is railing against debate or any discourse on the matter. In typical liberal fashion we see here their propensity to narrow their field of vision to only where their blinders allow. And why shouldn’t these things be discussed in class without the worry of being fired or disciplined?
He basically goes on and on, but his general disdain for anything not jibing with his own mindset is completely unabated. He no longer thinly veils his own discriminatory views as a means to “test the waters”, so to speak – with all of the troublesome conservatives gone, he can wave his hateful banner with his true colors showing.
Like Charles, I too encourage you to read it in its entirety, especially parts like the section entitled:
RESTORING INTEGRITY TO OUR ELECTIONS
Where you’ll see:
“Campaign Contributions – We support full disclosure of the amounts and sources of any campaign contributions to political candidates, whether contributed by individuals, political action committees, or other entities.”
“We decry the appointment of unelected bureaucrats, and we urge Congress to use their constitutional authority to defund and abolish these positions and return authority to duly elected officials, accountable to the electorate.”
I mean, that is what democracy is supposed to be about isn’t it?
What’s pathetic however is that like he, the netizens of LGF fit in nowhere but LGF. I guess Charles should’ve rode the 9/11 gravy train a little while longer, eh?
