GUEST COLUMN: I can’t wait to see what the liberals come up with next
Well now, let’s do a quick review of the last few weeks of the accomplishments and claims made by our liberal friends.
Let’s begin with that crazy freshman New York congresswoman and part-time social media dancer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who proclaimed that “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change!” She then went on to assert “This is the war, this is our World War II. How are we saying let’s take it easy when 3,000 Americans died last year?”
Let’s see: If we continue to lose on average 3,000 Americans due to climate change over the next 12 years as she predicts when the world will end, that will be a total of 36,000 dead Americans. That’s still a far cry from the 406,000 Americans killed in WWII, along with 600,000 who were wounded. But hey, she can say anything she wants because she’s America’s socialist darling, and people believe her.
Then there’s the abortion law signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Misleadingly called The Reproductive Health Law, the only real health considered will be that of Planned Parenthood as they will continue to receive even greater amounts of the taxpayer’s dollars for committing the most unspeakable acts against the unborn. The bill will allow “qualified health professionals” to perform abortions on women right up until the time of delivery when necessary to protect a patient’s life or health.
Take note: The baby is not considered “the patient”, and qualified health professional doesn’t mean you have to be a doctor to insert the suction and the needle. Ironically, it was Cuomo who said “The death penalty is morally indefensible and has no place in the 21st century.” Hey Guv, at least those adults sentenced to death for the horrendous crimes they committed had a choice in how they departed this world.
Catholics around the world are calling for him to be excommunicated, which for Cuomo may provide a path to being a viable Democratic candidate for president.
Speaking of Catholics, how about those vile, vulgar Catholic boys from Kentucky who decided to take a stand for the same unborn children that New York’s governor would like to see get the Gosnell treatment? Initially they stood accused of surrounding and threatening an indigenous American who according to social media was an innocent bystander and a Viet Nam veteran to boot. As it turned out, just about everything the liberal media claimed, along with some hand-wringing conservatives, was wrong. And even though it was Nathan Phillips, the Indigenous American who went out of his way to approach the boys to pound a tom-tom in their faces, it was the high schoolers who showed more maturity than a house full of Michael Moores.
Yet the liberal press couldn’t find it within themselves to admit their bias. Most of the media also looked past the lies made by Philips, including that he had served in Viet Nam. In fact, according to Red State, Phillips never left stateside during his enlistment. Instead, the media seemed content in challenging someone, anyone to hit the privileged white boys in the face.
The press also crowed loudly about how Nancy Pelosi made President Trump back down over the shutdown without receiving even a dollar for the border wall, thus leaving Americans to ask themselves exactly what will happen when the time is up on the so-called negotiating and compromise? Will America be strengthened on its southern border with even a hint of a wall being built? Will Democrats listen to the security needs as put forth by the experts, meaning those who actually work the border? Or will their hatred of our president disable them from putting their nation and its citizen’s needs first? I’m betting the answer is no, no and yes.
If you’re like me, you just can’t wait to see what the progressives come up with next. Maybe Sen. Kamala Harris will get invited to participate on Dancing with the Stars. Or perhaps Joy Behar will get a laugh. Maybe Madonna will get her wish and burn down the White House.
Either way, liberals have to be feeling pretty good about themselves. Besides, the only ones coming up on the short end are people of faith, white high school males, the unborn, Americans victimized by illegal criminal aliens, law enforcement officers, taxpayers, facts and pretty much anyone else who once held those values that made us proud of being an American.
