Bottom Line: there’s a “self-cleansing” mechanism in the Republican Party that doesn’t exist in the Democrat Party. It got there in the 1970’s when the GOP realized the extent to which the media were wedded to the left. Wedded is a good word. The thoroughly corrupt media are owned like a muslim owns his various wives.
Long absence. Important assignment. No time. Yes, the assignment involves projectiles. Yes, they’re hurled with hostile intent. Toward me and away from me. I thank God for the ones hurled away from me! 🙂 And for the hurlers.
There are no atheists in foxholes!
Couple of quick comments. I’ve had some time to think. There is a glaring truth: The American right is vastly morally superior to the American left.
I have proof:
The Republican Party — the putative party of the American political right — nominated a buffoon and a jackass to run for President this election go-round. What happened subsequently?
Well: Republicans of many, many stripes from all across the land leaped immediately to condemn, to disavow, to criticize, to lambaste the choice of a plurality of their own party.
The Democrat Party — definitely the party of the left — nominated a really bad person; a corrupt, amoral, power-mad, ugly, hot mess of a person to run for President.
The Democrats? How did they react to the nomination of a well-known sleazebag to the top of their party? Well, they rallied around their horror show of a candidate, and have been attempting ever since to portray the depraved wretch as a noble champion of high-minded, patriotic, American values and virtues.
Why? Why didn’t the Democrats react to the nomination of Hillay Clinton as the Republicans reacted to the nomination of Donald Tump? Simple: they’ve been nominating corrupt dirtbags like that for decades. Here’s the problem with America: The American left don’t see any problem with their own corruption and depravity.
And, if you weren’t paying attention, the left own, lock stock and barrel, the following:
- The media.
- Pop culture.
- All the “white noise” of America.
In other words: there’s a “self-cleansing” mechanism in the Republican Party, that doesn’t exist in the Democrat Party. That self-cleansing mechanism got there in the 1970’s when the GOP realized the extent to which the media were wedded to the left. Wedded is a good word. The thoroughly corrupt American media are owned like a muslim owns his various wives.
Instead of challenging that reality, GOP’ers said simply that they needed to be cleaner than clean, chaster than chaste, more open than open. They figured they needed to be purer than the driven snow. So they were.
Note: This is not a bad thing. This is what both parties should do … all the time. However, power corrupts. And unchecked, unsupervised, un-babysat power corrupts absolutely. Let the kids into the candy cabinet, and if you don’t watch them like a hawk, they will take all the candy. Simple as that. When the media realized they had the Republicans by the throat, they continued their gynecological-level scrutiny of the GOP … and left the Democrats entirely alone.
If the media were simply honest, then Bill and Hillary Clinton would be in a way overdue retirement … or in jail. Furthermore, the Democrats never would have nominated such nitwits, nincompoops, mooncalves, morons, blockheads and imbeciles as: Jimmy Carter, John Kerry, George McGovern and Bill Clinton.
Oh, and Barack Obama(1). Oh, and Hillary Clinton.
Can you imagine that? Actual intelligent people running for President? From both parties? How nice that might be.
(1) Don’t forget: some Democrat Party moonbats have actually won the Presidency.
