Republican Hypocrites

When I hear people like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich accuse Judge Sotomayor of “reverse racism”, why do I think they mean “racism” other than the way they want it?

When I hear “Right to Life” people celebrating the murder of a doctor in his church, why do I think they mean the right to take someone else’s life?

When I hear Republicans talk about a “Big Tent”, why do I think they mean the tent they want middle-class families to live in after losing their homes to foreclosures?

When I hear Republicans use the term “National Security”, why do I anticipate hearing something about why we should be afraid?

When I hear Republicans talk about “Judicial Activists”, why do I think of the “Bush v. Gore” Supreme Court decision?

When I hear Republicans talk about gay marriage as a threat to the “institution” of marriage, why do I think about Republicans voting against medical insurance for children and getting arrested in a public restroom soliciting gay sex?

Sure, I’m picking on Republicans – its fun to insult the falsely self-righteous, religious “Conservatives” who “hate their next-door neighbor, but don’t forget to say grace”. But the Dems have their greatest hits too. The Dems have their own particular strain of hypocrisy. It is not usually dressed in religious rhetoric. It’s usually related to being cowardly and compliant in the face of GOP nonsense. Take the Torture issue and Truth Commission as examples… or the Patriot Act or the FISA Act as others…

…Dick Cheney allegedly supports gay marriage (saying that everyone should experience “enhanced relationship techniques”). Yeah, right.

    Dear Geoff,

    I just read one of Ann Coulter’s comments on the death of George Tiller. She said she’d “prefer not to think of it as murder but instead of termination at the 203rd trimester” or something similar. I did not care to remember the exact words.

    Hypocrisy is not the only characteristic of many Republicans. Apparently, simplistic, judgmental and self-righteous thinking is another.

    Abortions are often done because women who have become pregnant are not ready to have children or to care for them. Children die every few minutes or so from various forms of negligence or abuse. In spite of this, Ms. Coulter has attempted to rationalize the murder of an abortion doctor with her ridiculous statement.

    Her appetite for guilt and fear must apparently be satisfied somehow. Compassion? Oh, how second-rate and boring.

    Contemporary philosopher Eckhart Tolle once said, “There is only one purpose to this life, and that is to awaken.”

    Thanks for helping lead our country in the awakening process. It’s folks like you that keep me from giving up hope.

    I’m just wondering if you could help me contact Dr. Kevorkian.

    I’m an Armenian like Dr. Kevorkian and have been a fan for many years and have been following him. I’m just wondering if you could help me contact Dr. Kevorkian.

    Thank you

    I am just amazed at goverment and the Republican party. 2011 and we finaly have a man of color in office, a transgendered woman in office, but yet our freedom and right`s as Americans are molded by a few “Good Ol Boys” in office who are at state level. We think we have come so far but the racist views, and bigotry by the Republican party, police, fireman, judges, and yes even lawers have got us all stuck on stupid in a time warp from the 50’s, but with a prayer, and people like you life seems worth living. Thank you MR.Fieger for all you stand for, with out people like you, people like me would never have a chance living life.

    Republicans are among the most hypocritical people out there. They spew out magic words like “pro-life” and yet want nothing to do with universal healthcare which would help the newborn babies they want to force women to bear. They fight for the right of a cluster of yet-to-be conscious cells to develop into a baby but once that baby is born into an impoverished situation, they take the attitude, “It’s your problem. Deal with it!” As Richard Dawkins said in “The God Delusion,” the pro-life movement tends to value life– as long as it is in-utero or terminally ill. There was a joke on “The Daily Show” during the Terri Schiavo escapade. First, they showed a clip in which Bush said, “We’re going to protect America’s most vulnerable citizens.” Cut to Jon Stewart who said, “Yeah! We’re going to get universal healthcare!” Then it cut to a clip of Bush flying in from his ranch to sign a bill to save Schiavo’s… existence. I can’t find this clip anywhere, sadly.

    Here’s Bush’s idiotic speech that he made the day Schiavo died:

    And Rush Limbaugh is disgusting. I found a video on YouTube from the mid-90s where he trashed Dr. Kevorkian, who mischievously talked about how Jesus’s death would have been more dignified in the back of his van than on a cross. Limbaugh got so upset and started screaming that Jesus had been murdered. Actually, no. It WAS a suicide. God sent himself to Earth where he sacrificed himself to himself to save the world from himself. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Ah, here’s the clip I was talking about. It wasn’t quite as I remembered it (it wasn’t Bush making the speech about protecting vulnerable citizens), but it’s funny all the same!
