Nicholas D. Kristof: Smarmy As Ever And So Totally Wrong As Usual

Nick's got him a good gig as the pontificator of disaster on the media's Titanic, the New York Times. Unfortunately, being the paper of record isn't what it used to be now that people have found the record a lie, but Nick has got to do what Nick as got to do. So he goes for the low blow again aimed at the Tea Party. Wow, was that predictable.

To save you the tedium of reading such tripe I’ll recap for you.

If you’re religious, want less government, lower taxes, a strong military and conservative values try Pakistan as your ideal country. You stupid morons. Oh, and even though “Sarah Palin and John Boehner don’t intend to turn Washington into Islamabad-on-the-Potomac. And they are right that long-term budget issues do need to be addressed. But when many Republicans insist on “starving the beast” of government, cutting taxes, regulations and social services — slashing everything but the military — well, those are steps toward Pakistan.

He then goes on to give us a travelogue of the countries he has reported on. Gravitas personally delivered underpinning his brilliance, no doubt.

Yep, I’ve got to admit that we want women pregnant, barefoot and back in the kitchen or else we’ll backhand them right across the mouth. That’s what conservatism is all about. And racist!

Unfortunately, Kristofians get all upset with their perceived notions of how conservatives think, but not so much how Islamofascists actually think. That is unimportant in their smarmy and wrong world. 

Liberalism: The Philosophy Of The Stupid.

Thomas Sowell stated: "Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”

Now Mark Levin takes it a step further explaining why what is being done to us, in our name, is wrong. The political mutants currently governing in Washington, DC need to be called out and voted out because they are stupid.

Mark Levin: Why Liberalism is the Philosophy of the Stupid

The reason I say that liberalism is the philosophy of the stupid is because we can look at what's going around in the country today. If, in your own lives, you were pursuing policies that were destroying your own home ownership, that were destroying your own job, that were creating a massive, impossible debt for your family and your children in particular, you'd stop it. You wouldn't keep doing it!

And yet for the liberal, if it's imposed on you -- and they feel that they can be immune from it -- they're for it.

Their prescription will kill us, but according to them we will be cured. A win-win for them because a middle-class is a thorn in their side. If the middle-class can be eliminated then the wealthy elites can directly take care of the poor their policies have created and then they can feel even more smug and intellectually satisfied.
