For quite some time our politicians have gotten away with lying directly to the American people. President Obama said that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” when attempting to sell us on Obamacare. That wasn’t exactly true. George W. Bush said that we shouldn’t engage in “nation building,” and yet that was the core strategy he utilized while waging war after 9/11. Bill Clinton lied to us so often that Democrats started bragging about what a great liar he was. Hillary Clinton has also been lying to us, and we’ve known it all along.
On Saturday, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said on Breitbart News: “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.” For this bit of salient analysis Huckabee is being castigated by the Anti-Defamation League, most of the media, and the ruling elites of both political parties. For his part, Huckabee not only hasn’t backed down, he’s vigorously defending his position.
The media and the elite political class are apoplectic over Donald Trump’s statements. Some are just infuriated that he’s openly speaking about subjects that they don’t want to address, and some are simply too dim-witted to realize that, in the real world, when you hit someone, they’ll hit you back. Let’s try to look at the situation as dispassionately as possible.
This week Sen. Bernie Sanders and Gov. Martin O’Malley were both booed off the stage by members of the “Black Lives Matter” movement. O’Malley made the mistake of saying: “I know, I know… Let me talk a little bit… Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter.” For members of the professionally aggrieved class of agitating Lefties, that is a big no-no. It doesn’t matter if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Socialist, or a Liberal member of the Democratic party in good standing. When the new agitators show up and start chanting “Black Lives Matter!” You’re not allowed to agree that ALL lives matter. That’s just considered a micro-aggression. You’re not allowed (by their measurements) to minimize what they’re saying by expressing empathy towards everyone. It’s insufficient to imply that you’ll be striving to treat everyone the same, if elected. You’re supposed to show sympathy and support to their race exclusively, and their cause explicitly, or you’re just part of the racist system that’s keeping them down.
