Why do conservatives and Republicans get to be the domineering voice of “whatever we say or believe today” is not only correct and acceptable, but gospel for the ages, even when it’s wrong, unethical, unpresidential, and scientifically inaccurate?
Is this how you bully your way to power, with a smile and a mouth full of lies and hypocrisy?
Whether it’s climate change, nationalism, unsecured use of phones by a President, civilian murder in Yemen, or disparaging America to the public (and other countries), there seems to be a louder monopoly of hypocrisy, contradiction, and bully-headed slogans of the voices of the (R)ight.
It’s been a theme for years now, unless I’ve wrongly observed everything about books, television, radio, the internet, and basic observation.
Is this the same bullish monopoly as regular conservatives, or a disease of those who are always on television and/or running for their seats in districts where their base just wants to hear the same old, tired nonsense?
Do Democrats and liberals suffer the same fates?
“LOCK HER UP!!!” said the voices of those who have now, tail between their legs, left the administration and are dealing with White House and NSA and Intelligence Agency leaks.
I don’t like POW soldiers who get caught, said a one-time (R) candidate who is now commander-in-chief. And yet, that POW veteran, now supports every cabinet pick in lock-step with his party.
Party over country!!! votes the (R) Congress, the party of the “Country First” campaign of 2008.
And the list goes on.
The sad, dark, arrogant, tone-deaf, unwilling-to-compromise list goes on.
If Democrats and liberals acted like this, would the hyper-masculine and hyper-partisan voices of the right lambaste them as weak, girly, snowflakey libtards, or maturely admit that they are not always consistent in their vocal opposition to Democratic leadership.
The magic (R) is nothing but a weak, throwback symbol to the hyper and toxic masculinity of the last century, and the time of the (R) is up.
One can hope.
Take a look.
In his editorial New Rule, Bill Maher wonders why Republicans have “Patriotic Immunity” and disputes the notion that they inherently love America more than Democrats.
