Hypocrite of the Day

Leominster, Massachusetts school superintendent Paula Deacon recently announced yet another delay in opening schools, which have been closed all year. She then flew to Florida to see Tom Brady and the Bucs game.

Environmental groups are nowhere to be found [on nuclear energy]. Why? Because they hate nuclear power and are financed by the solar and wind industry lobby. They oppose a form of energy that emits NO greenhouse gases.  Are there no ends to leftwing hypocrisy?

IIRC the takeover of the WI statehouse in 2011 lasted quite a while.  Let's get some more of the footage and articles on this.

https://beautifultrouble.org/case/wisconsin-capitol-occupation/

Worth noting:

"The teaching assistants noticed that the senate had failed to set a limit on the number of speakers on a floor debate about Walker’s bill, and so signed up thousands of people to offer testimony. This kept debate open indefinitely, as well as the capitol itself, and eventually turned the occupation into a twenty-four-hour speak-out, with a microphone set up in the middle of the rotunda."

Clearly, this is not what happened after the Trump rally.

Same rules for everyone, right?

Or are we still in the Mitt Romney mode of going into the fetal position in response to every attack?

Those aren't the only two options on the table.

Looking like we are just as bad as what we condemned with righteousness while going 0-60 in court and our  side killed a policeman (he died of his injuries later) while breaking into the Capitol is a tough sell.  Using Colin Kap. as our theoretician is tougher yet.

Isn't this amazing?

They take the fun and challenge out of pointing out their bias and hypocrisy when they swim nakedly in it.

or just TDS?

we are stronger than before ?

28 trill in debt
 
virtual war with China

we can't even say man or woman anymore

everything is race or identity politics

media silencing the party you once belonged to

mono party take over of the government with big monied backer and virtual control of 90% media

Oh and yes we are a sword being tempered to be "stronger than before"

Does this not meet the definition "muscle head" ( knuckle head) disorder?

 If Trump has called off the ruckus for inauguration day, why the security scare.  If Trump can incite them and they take their direction from him, can't he call them off as well.  If they're saying the supporters would be violent anyway, then he didn't incite them. 

BYW, people like a gracious, magnanimous winner.  Democrats in Washington aren't that.

It appears that they suddenly believe that walls do work, given all those that have gone up recently in DC.

Stabbing Hector’s Corpse
Americans hate one thing more than a sore loser, and that is an arrogant, vindictive—and bullying—winner.
By Victor Davis Hanson

January 20, 2021
In Homer’s epic Iliad, the Greek hero Achilles finally kills his hated archenemy, the often trash-talking Trojan warrior, Hector.

After Hector dies, once frightened but now gloating Greek soldiers encircle and cowardly stab his limp corpse.

Achilles even ties the ankles of the dead Hector to his chariot and in fits of mindless rage drags him around the walls of Troy.

Homer then brilliantly shows how Achilles’ vindictive excess ensures sympathy even for the once-braggart Hector. Eventually, the adolescent Achilles relents, grows up, allows Hector to be buried, and accepts the tragic nature of a common humanity.

If Democrats and the Left had wished to reinvigorate the Trump legacy, they could have done no better than unleashing their unhinged and often repulsive hatred of the last two weeks.   

The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson recently boasted, “There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed.”   

What method does Robinson advocate for the required mind-rinsing of these millions? The Chinese, Soviet, or North-Korean model?

CNN’s Don Lemon claims that those who voted for Trump—nearly half the electorate—are synonymous with the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis. Would Lemon include one in three Hispanics or one in five black males?

The Lincoln Project, in good McCarthyite fashion, wants to create lists of former Trump officials to destroy their reputations. Is that the spirit of their namesake, Abe Lincoln, who urged Americans to heal the nation’s wounds “with malice toward none, with charity for all”?

Was it not enough to rush through a slipshod, one-day second impeachment of Trump, the first in our nation’s history?

Or after he leaves office, will Trump also become the first private citizen in history to be the target of a Senate impeachment trial—an act as unnecessary as it is likely unconstitutional. 

So far the Left has produced no consistent standard by which the public can judge Trump’s excesses. Indeed, for months, blue-state mayors and governors contextualized nonstop summer rioting, arson, and looting.

Politicians like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Vice President Kamala Harris, and Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), have themselves either revved up angry protestors, urged mass street demonstrators to continue indefinitely, or directed followers to hound and harass government officials.

Trump, unlike Iran’s strongman Ayatollah Khamenei who advocates the destruction of Israel, is banned for life from Twitter. So are many of his followers—unlike those of radical Antifa and BLM who used social media to coordinate their often violent protests, looting, and arson. 

The small conservative alternative to Silicon Valley’s left-wing social media monopoly, Parler, was crushed by Big Tech in one fell swoop. 

Does Joe Biden really believe he can unite the country by smearing two U.S. senators as no different from the genocidal Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels? 

Already Biden’s premature promises of mass amnesties and lax border enforcement have sparked caravans of undocumented immigrants to head for the border. Are they going again to crash through without background checks—right in the middle of a spiking COVID-19 pandemic, with already crammed ICUs and long lines for vaccinations?

Joe Biden has promised to cancel pipeline contracts and curtail fossil fuel production. 

How popular will that be?

Fracking made the United States a net energy exporter and crashed gas prices. America is no longer dependent on Middle East oil and gas. It has no need to intervene in endless wars out of worry for secure energy supplies. 

The transition to clean-burning natural gas allowed the United States to reduce carbon emissions more rapidly than almost any other major industrial nation. And high-paying gas and oil jobs sparked economic booms from Texas to North Dakota. 

Lots of departed Republican Trump officials are now loudly trashing their former boss. Few admit that their once-stalled careers were revived only after they successfully lobbied to work for the Trump White House. 

Efforts of Republican House members to join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s push to impeach Trump were widely praised as “bipartisan” in the media and by the Left. But impeachment won the support of less than five percent of Republican House members.

No wonder, since some national polls put Trump’s national popularity unchanged or even above where it was on Election Day. About 85 percent of Republicans still support him.

The irony is that all these frenzied efforts to mutilate the political corpse of Trump are reviving him. 

Banning Trump from his often self-destructive Twitter addiction, smearing his supporters as racists, and bulldozing through a far-Left agenda will only ensure Trump a ninth life.

Americans hate one thing more than a sore loser, and that is an arrogant, vindictive—and bullying—winner.
