After reading this report by Bill Hobbs,
I am satisfied that the poster I wrote about yesterday did indeed come from Craig Fitzhugh's office. Which is a shame. I was really hoping it was a hoax. As it stands, my faith in humanity just took a nose dive.
Below is my post from yesterday - the one I put on hold because I wasn't sure of the veracity of the claims.
Please note that the refenced Jeff Danziger cartoon has since been taken down. See Michelle Malkin
for details on that. I did save the cartoon, it's in a link in the post below.
I reprint this post because, well, I want to. My bewilderment at the behavior of the left grows every day.
Via Michelle Malkin
comes this poster, put out by Tennessee Democrats
in a race for a state House seat in District 82. The flyer is being distributed by Democrat Craig Fitzhugh. Click for larger image.
Nevermind that the poster calls Bush voters retarded. I've been called worse. I'm sure you have. And I'm sure that's what they had in mind when they made the poster; to make people who vote for Bush feel mentally deficient.
I think they forgot that they're supposed to be the party of inclusion; the party that embraces diffrerences in everyone, the party that wants the whole world to treat each other respectfully and join hands and just get along.
So why did they put out a poster that ridicules Special Olympics particpants? Because that is exactly what this poster does. It takes a wonderful event and turns into a cheap, juvenile joke. Oh, I know the cliche has been around the internet a long time, used in various forms on various sites. It's not like the Democrats who used the poster made the saying up. But they used
it, in a campaign ad. No, in an anti-campaign ad.
This is where black hatred leads, folks. It leads you to say and do things without thinking.
Case in point: Jeff Danziger
, liberal cartoon editorialist.
Click for bigger. How's that for blatant racism.
Now, isn't the left supposed to be anti-racist? Or is it ok to make racist comments - or deride the retarded - as long as it is helping your side make a statement? Oh, wait. It's ok! See, some of Jeff's best friends are
, well, you know.
Oh sure, Republicans say ugly things. Republicans say mean things. I know all your comment talking points already. But I though the whole of the left prided themselves on being politically correct, on being kind to everyone and never uttering a racist word much less even using the word retarded
. I mean, ten years ago when I was entrenched in the world of the left, I would never dream that one day a man like "Screw Them" Kos
would be hailed as a leader. What a long, strange trip it's been from the days when all they wanted was peace and love to the days of hurling racism and hurling rocks.
No wonder there are no good protest songs coming out of that camp. How many windows must a liberal smash?
just does not have the same ring as How how many years can some people exist before they're allowed to be free?
How could the people who embrace such things as multi-culti crayons
also embrace this?
I was about to say that we only have twenty days left of this, then I smacked myself upside the head and called myself retarded. This isn't going to end. If Bush wins, it will get worse. In the days after a Kerry win - after a brief Nelson Muntz cry of HA-HA! - will a hush fall over the nation when millions of anti-Bush stalwarts realize they put in power a man they don't really like?
See, either way, the bizarre bouts of hatred and pettiness and mirror-image behavior will remain.
Unless, of course, they find a cure for hatred! I mean, while they're making campaign promises
to cure juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and to heal the sick and raise and raise the dead and whatever else Edwards is promising with his Benny Hin
impersonation, they might just cure what ails the left.
