Hypocrisy of the Left
The Official Obama Network
A Double Standard
Sedition? Really Chris Matthews and the left-wing gang? Yesterday Joe Klein on Chris Matthews program "Hardball" (if you have never head of it, it is perfectly understandable) stated that he had looked up the word "sedition " and accused Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin of making treasonous, seditious acts against the United States. Sedition, according to my dictionary, means "incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government. any action, esp. in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion." Now, there is a very fine line here that needs to be addressed. Freedom of speech does not allow you to run into a theater and scream FIRE. So, in some respects, there are restrictions placed on the 1st Amendment. However, there are no such restrictions placed upon criticizing the government. Now, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin have attacked President Obama for steering the country down the path to Socialism. I find it hard to disagree with that argument. If bailouts, government take overs of the auto industry, banking and health care do not qualify as a path to Socialism, then give me your definition. But, how does all this translate to sedition? Let's go back a couple of years.
Remember when the left-wing was taking to the street about the Iraq War (speaking of which, where are those fine people these days?)? Nancy Pelosi said this was Democratic and patriotic. Not one word of these demonstrations as being one of "sedition. " Everyone on the left, including Mr. Thrill up his leg, Chris Matthews, was strangely silent about "sedition ." Not a word about it from the esteemed Mr. Klein of Time Magazine. How about the outrageous acts of Code Pink in interrupting Karl Rove recently, accusing him of war crimes? Was this patriotic or sedition of a former government official? Apparently not. Not a word from the above gang of "patriots" in the Democratic Party or the MSM. Remember how these global anarchists always show up whenever the G-8 leaders show up to wreak their brand of "peaceful co-existence" on whatever city has the misfortune of hosting the meeting? Are these people branded as war criminals, thugs or hoodlums? No, apparently not. According to the New York Times they are addressing the grievances of humanity. Again, not a word from the MSM about the violence that follows this group of professional protesters wherever they go. Nothing.
We are told criticizing President Obama is seditious, unpatriotic, treasonous and bordering on being on the same level of terrorists. Tea Party members are racists. Chris Matthew forgetting President Obama was "black for about an hour" is simply misinterpreted. Harry Reid can say "...the country is ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama, a light-skinned African American with no negro dialect unless he wanted one" and people say that is just Harry being Harry. Even so-called "black leaders " rose to his defense. If a Republican Senator had said that, would the black leaders have jumped to his defense? Most likely, they would be willing to help shovel the dirt to end his career. George W. Bush is called a war criminal, someone who "enjoys having U.S. troops die " as the late Rep.John Mutha stated and nothing is said about sedition. Nothing.
Now that Americans are waking up to the nightmare that President Obama and the Democratic Party have inflicted upon us and the generations after us, criticism is now being declared as one of sedition, traitorous and terrorist in nature. There can be no doubt, none, there is a double standard with the left-wing. Either criticism of the government and the president is sedition under both a Democratic President and a Republican President or it has no meaning. You can't have it both ways in the real world. Perhaps in the La La Land that the left-wing likes to believe in the double standard has true meaning. But, in the land of adults who know hypocrisy when they see it, the double standard is exactly what it is; hypocrisy.
