Once again the “tolerant,” “sensitive” Left has shown us their true colors this week. A few days ago, the liberal website Wonkette made fun of Sarah Palin and her son Trig who was born with Down syndrome. They thought they would help celebrate Trig’s birthday by posting an article entitled “Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap on His Birthday.” The braintrust at Wonkette proceeded to ask, “What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.”
Andrew Klavan of Klavan on the Culture has some helpful hints on how to behave and survive during an Islamic massacre. You don’t have to be a craven politician to employ appeasement and behave shamefully in the face of evil. You, too, can surrender your principles on command, and cower in fear in a manner that will impress tyrants and thugs the world over. As Mr. Klavan points out, with just a little intellectual dishonesty, and some unprincipled sniveling, we can save a lot of lives.
Remember a few months ago when the largely apolitical nutjob Jared Loughner shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and several other people, and the “mainstream” media wasted only minutes (before we even knew the shooter’s name) blaming “hateful rhetoric” from conservatives, Tea Party patriots and anyone on the Right who has spoken out for freedom in the past two years? The debacle in Wisconsin has provided a mountain of solid proof that the real vitriol and violence is coming from one direction: the Left.
