The left does not represent peace, love and understanding. They are not tolerant either. CNN political analyst Roland Martin and Huffington Post contributor and political satirist David Bourgeois advocated – not implied – the violent approach to governing and encouraged President Obama to get involved.
If Jim Vicevich said this on the big radio show, he’d be fired. If Rush Limbaugh, said it, he’d be gone. Hat tip to Big Government.
From CNN, Roland Martin complains Republicans have been blocking Executive Branch appointments and is ticked off that Congress – Republicans and a few Democrats – has been destroying the agenda of the “top dog.” Martin should be reminded the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the United States federal government are on equal footing.
Martin sums up his rant in the last paragraph.
Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ’em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.
Next we have David Bourgeois at the Huffington Post – cleverly hiding behind the political satirist job description – who suggests Obama should start breaking kneecaps. He fondly recalls Obama’s assent to power, convinced his promise of bringing “petty Washington-politics-as-usual” to an end, but we all knew it was a complete lie, and Washington politics is now worse than ever, with even the lefties leaving the Senate and the House of Representatives primarily because they can no longer get away with the crap they have been doing for decades.
He goes on to have the guts to complain about the “Bush lies” and the desire for Americans to have “harmony” in Washington. Hogwash. We know what they want. Has Bourgeois been looking at the polls lately?
Bourgeois continues, with emphasis in the original.
Obama’s entire first year in office can be summed up this way: pandering, placating, and pussy-footing around the Republican Party. He offered his hand to the Republicans, and they gave him a firm backhand. Look at the health care reform bill. For God’s sake, it’s a giveaway to Republicans: It has no public option, it allows for interstate insurance shopping, and if passed, will add millions of customers to the oligarchical insurance companies. How much more Republican-friendly could the bill be? If you ask the Republicans they’d say, “The only good health care reform bill is a dead health care reform bill.” (Poor choice of words deliberate.)
Clearly, Obama has a distaste for political hardball. By his actions, he doesn’t want to become simply a liberal version of George W. Bush, ramming liberal policies down the throats of Congress — much to my chagrin. He needs to rethink that.
Here’s what I’d say to Obama, and I believe many of his advisers are saying these sorts of things as well:
You’ve given it your best shot, you’ve tried numerous times to talk with the Republicans, to negotiate, to meet them halfway on every single matter before the American people. But they hate you for many reasons. It’s time you break kneecaps. It’s time to destroy the Republican Party. They don’t deserve a seat at the table when all they want to do is score political points by being the Party of No.
Using only metaphors? That’s for you to decide, but why are conservatives targeted – by lefties including Arriana Huffington – for inciting violence through their radio shows or television stations when their comments do not promote violence at all!
If CNN and Huffington don’t come forward and admit this is clearly over the line, Kristinn Taylor back at Big Government suggests…
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs should shame them into doing so. Surely the Obama administration does not countenance violence against their domestic political opponents.
