Signs The Left Is Losing

As I have said many times before, the only way the left can possibly get normal folks to buy their radical bullshit is to lie, as Obama has done to get to the White House. The only way that works, of course, is to police the dialogue, so they also resort to censorship. I've experienced it at the personal level, when various idiots have informed me that I may not use a certain word or phrase, even express certain ideas, in discussing politics, a futile demand as they have invariably discovered. On the other hand, they always demand the right to unfettered free speech in their own interests. Examples include Peter Stark, who several times called Bush a liar on the House floor; John Murtha, who regularly slandered the military and lied about the situation in Iraq, whatever it was at the moment; Hillary Clinton, who, lacking even the courage to say it straight up to his face, implied that General Petraeus was a liar; the list goes on.

This is known as hypocrisy; idiots can look that word up in a big book called a "dictionary."

This mindset also manifests in how the Obama Democrats label every disastrous legislative volley, which are unfailingly titled to communicate the exact opposite of their easily predictable consequences.

That hypocrisy is also on display in all its glory with the childish and censorious revisions to section 370 of the House Rules and Manual, this just two days after almost 2 million marched on Washington to protest their criminally corrupt federal government.

The Politico:
Under section 370 of the House Rules and Manual it has been held that a Member could:
• refer to the government as “something hated, something oppressive.”
• refer to the President as “using legislative or judicial pork.”
• refer to a Presidential message as a “disgrace to the country.”
• refer to unnamed officials as “our half-baked nitwits handling foreign affairs.”

Likewise, it has been held that a member could not:
• call the President a “liar.”
• call the President a “hypocrite.”
• describe the President’s veto of a bill as “cowardly.”
• charge that the President has been “intellectually dishonest.”
• refer to the President as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”
• refer to alleged “sexual misconduct on the President’s part.”
In essence, the Democrats will no longer tolerate the truth. They have addressed every possible honest and legitimate criticism of Obama by pre-emptively censoring its reference, at least any they could think of, knowing the guy as they do (In fact, they have done the country a huge service by cataloguing everything Obama is, even while declaring it against the rules of the House. I just wonder about the "sexual misconduct on the President’s part" thingy: do they know something we don't yet?).

Democrats are cloaking this behind feigned outrage over Joe Wilson's entirely reasonable and unassailable call-out that Obama was lying during his address to the Joint Session, calling it an affront to the dignity of the House. This from a body whose past and present members include Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Pat Leahy, John Conyers, Maxine Waters, William Jefferson, Charles Rangel, Charles Schumer, Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, Cynthia McKinney, et al. And this from a gang that gleefully cheers as the State Media slanders their opponents in a blizzard of lies and mischaracterizations.

Now, the kneejerk idiot reaction will be to point to their favorite Republican targets, but only the left are perpetually engaged in censorship of the political dialogue to their own advantage - "Overseas Contingent Operations", anyone? "Man-Caused Disaster", anyone? These new House Rules, anyone? Only the left constantly try to enforce a double standard on others' behavior while allowing their own to run amok - Nancy Pelosi's "swastika" charges, anyone? Van Jones' radical anti-Americanism, anyone? Only the left sees The People as an evil, undisciplined mass to be ignored at best and policed into silence at worst - "Localization" in radio, anyone? Only the left wants to assert statist controls on every sector of American enterprise - Obama's Czars, anyone? Only the left aspires to rob Americans of the freedoms proscribed and guaranteed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights - Obama's concept of "Negative Rights", anyone? McCain-Feingold, anyone (that's right: McCain)? Only the left would choose as their presidential candidate a man who can in no way be honest about his real agenda - Barack Hussein Obama, anyone? And only the left would allow the subversion of their party by a radical criminal organization aiming to burn the Constitution and exert fascist controls over the entire country, in the name of Power Above All Else - the Democrats, anyone?

This censorship of House speech does not change the legitimacy of Wilson's shot across Obama's bow, or any other legitimate charges against Obama; it never will. Which is why The People carry on against the left's best efforts to shut down whatever opposition their dwindling power can affect.
