“Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.” – Charles Spurgeon
How many times can I write about liberal hypocrisy, and still have something new to say? Well, it’s not so much about new information as it is about necessary repetition. The most basic lessons are the most valuable ones, because they need the most repeating. Hypocrisy and politics are binary. There are many, many Republicans who fall firmly in the same camp as the Democrats. However, the difference is that the Democrats get away with it. It is because of their escape artistry that I am the most annoyed.
A free society cannot operate if its citizens are being brainwashed. Let’s take a look at recent events that highlight liberals getting away with extraordinary hypocrisy. First, I’ll be returning to the wells of Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. These women are the epitome of grime and the definition of gutter politics. According to Breitbart News:
“Two of the most powerful Democrats in Congress blasted Breitbart News on Monday as ‘offensive’ over an article published highlighting street art inspired by Andrew Breitbart that included a photoshop of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s face on the body of Miley Cyrus in her infamous MTV VMA performance.”
Schultz had some choice words regarding the artwork: “To say the least, the Breitbart news ad is foul, offensive, and disrespectful to all woman…It is a disgusting new low and would be reprehensible against any woman – regardless of party.”
Apparently, Wasserman Schultz completely forgot about the episode of SNL, hosted by Miley Cyrus, in which Cyrus portrayed Michelle Bachmann in a disgusting way. Michelle Bachmann was mocked in a degrading, and very sexual manner, very similar to the way Pelosi was portrayed. And yet, no comment regarding the sexual degradation of Michelle Bachmann.
Now, let’s take a look at OkCupid. Recently, OkCupid, a dating website, asked its users to refrain from using Mozilla Firefox, because Mozilla’s CEO donated to prop 8 back in 2008. This pressure built until the CEO—only active for a week—was forced to resign. But now, it has come out that OkCupid’s CEO, Sam Yagan, once donated to a candidate with strong opposition to same-sex marriage. Huh. Should he be forced to resign, too?
These two instances of hypocrisy–from Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz, and the CEO of OkCupid—are so egregious because they mirror so precisely the acts that they themselves condemned. I guarantee that if I were to ask any liberal about their feelings regarding the Mozilla situation, they would be overjoyed that Brendan Eich was forced to resign. If I then told them that the CEO of OkCupid did the exact same thing, they would fumble for an excuse. The same goes for the Pelosi/Bachmann/Miley situation. Deception is such an ingrained part of the liberal philosophy, it cannot be unraveled.
Hypocrisy isn’t just a type of deception; it’s a critical piece of liberal survival. So, what’s the takeaway here? Well, first, you will never win an argument with a died-in-the-wool liberal. You cannot beat someone who cheats to survive. They will always outmaneuver you. You may win according to reality, but they will remain blind until they themselves are hit hard by liberal policies. Second, it’s more important now than ever before to spread the word. It’s so easy to give up at this point, to throw in the towel, but there are people who can be reached. If you hear someone talking about the resignation of the CEO of Mozilla, tell them about OkCupid. If you hear a friend talking in ignorance about Obamacare, engage them in conversation. They have the media, we have us.
These next several years will define our nation, and if we do anything less than our absolute best to help turn this country around, we have no one to blame but ourselves. Liberal hypocrisy is a gift we can use to win the hearts and minds of those who are in the ignorant middle ground. Let’s use it well.
