Oh the Irony

So now we’re a mob, eh? We who disagree with Obama-Care and voice our disagreement at town hall meetings. And those of us who blog about this administration are merely “manufacturing” dissent. Bah! May I remind you of these infamous words screeched by Hillary Clinton:

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. And we should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

OK, Hillary. OK, Pelosi. OK, Obama. We’re disagreeing. We’re being very vocal about our disagreement. We’re raising our voices in answer to the lies being spread in Democrat talking points. So why is it when Hillary screams her disagreement with the Bush administration, she’s an “American” exercising her rights yet when average folks disagree with Obama-care, we’re a mob?

It’s typical liberal hypocrisy – rather, it’s elitism on display. When liberals speak out against a policy they’re being patriotic and engaging in debate. When conservatives speak out we’re being a disruptive, partisan mob. When Obama raised awareness about certain issues he was being a community organizer. When conservatives raise awareness about liberal policies, we’re “manufacturing dissent.” Pot, meet kettle.

They’re hypocrites all. Fortunately, I have the satisfaction of knowing they will pay a political price for their two-facedness. These same people who seem bent on foisting an enormously unpopular government intrusion upon us will find out in 2010 that the dissent was very real!

It is quite sad is it not? I am on the sad side today. I try to keep the anger burning so that I keep focused but sometimes it does wear me down.

Well put, RK.

The double-standards and hypocrisy are obvious to all but those whose ideology forces them to ignore or excuse it.
