Typical Liberal Hypocricy

The hypocrisy of the liberal mind and the left is unsurpassed in self righteous indignation. For eight years at least the left and the liberals in this country have found it not only fair but "patriotic" if they resorted to name calling and innuendo of the sitting President, a Conservative Republican President that is.

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, (well not if you work for an Iraqi newspaper then the shoe is either in your hand or already airborne), and there is criticism of a liberal socialistic President. Then there can not be any name calling or innuendo of any sort. It is just plane hate full and unacceptable.

We all saw this coming. The fact that some bloggers and pundits are a little miffed or surprised by this new twist in the liberal mindset is what is surprising. With Liberals it is do as I say and not as I do. This is their mantra. It always has been and always will be. They can not win an argument so they resort to name calling and labeling of their opponents.

Now we have a definite lack of judgment being committed by the RNC (nothing new there as they have shown no judgement in the way they ran the election campaign). Chip Saltsman sent a not so tolerant version of Puff the magic Dragon a parody by Paul Shanklin (?), entitled “Barack the Magic Negro”, to members of the RNC as a Christmas present.

But songwriter Peter Yarrow is all up in arms over the so-called vitriol hatred towards the office of the President. In a letter he writes the following:

The sending of a Christmas greeting by Chip Saltsman to the members of the Republican National Committee that includes a recording of the so-called parody, “Barack the Magic Negro” is not only offensive, it is shocking and saddening in the extreme. It flies in the face of America’s deeply held hope for a new era in which common ground and mutual respect characterize the exchanges between our national leaders.

I and my co-writer of “Puff,” Lenny Lipton, have been eagerly awaiting an end to the mean-spiritedness, outright disrespect and bigotry that was commonplace prior to this last presidential election. What might have been wearily accepted as “the way it was” in the campaign, is now unacceptable. Obama is not a candidate. He is the President-Elect, and this song insults the office of the Presidency, the people who voted for him, as well as those who did not — and taking a children’s song and twisting it in such vulgar, mean-spirited way, is a slur to our entire country and our common agreement to move beyond racism.

Michelle Malkin comments on this false indignation and adds her own indignation along with her readers who write in the comment section of her blog:

Michelle: All of sudden — after eight years of “F**k Bush” bumper stickers and “Kill Bush” assassination chic and Bush-or-Chimp parodies — the left is concerned about insulting the office of the Presidency?
Now, they are concerned with protecting the dignity of the office and with forging “common ground and mutual respect?”:

An excellent question and thought. As they were totally uncincerned with respect for the office before.

I wonder if Michelle and Barry would allow him (now a Dirty Old Man) alone with their kids for a few moments.

Of course they would. What Peter Yarrow did was before Barack’s time, so it doesn’t count! Remember W. Ayers? By the way, The only thing worse than liberal hypocracy is their memories. Anything they have said about GW that disrespected the Presidency is forgotten because they were talking about a Republican. Now that there is a democrat President, the office must be respected. This is not even mildly surprising. (referencing Peter Yarrow's pedophilia)

Methinks that if someone had taken a Peter, Paul & Mary song and changed it into a cruel personal attack on Bush, Mr. Yarrow would have said/written not a word.

“Respect for the Office of the Presidency” be d!#*ed.
The hypocricy is pretty mind-blowing.

He’s not a racist, he was just stupid.

The whole GOP leadership is stupid. And ok, I’ll say it - I think the song was out of place. See “stupid” above. Why give them ammo?

So true is AlohaGuy. If the Democrats really and truly want to scream racism then they need to play a few of David Allen Cole's songs. Now they are racist.

Michelle points out that "The hysterical rush to protect magical Obama from ridicule only proves David Ehrenstein’s point,(a writer for the L.A.Times) And the parody is as much, if not more, a satire of race-mongering demagogue Al Sharpton than it is of Obama".

Well as my liberal brother says sticks and stones can break your bones but names will never hurt me, unless they are against another liberal.
