Skip to comments.Lies? Only When Republicans Tell them, Right? - (revealing!! hits the nail on the head!)
Posted on 05/22/2005 3:29:54 PM PDT by CHARLITE
Sandy Berger is caught cramming top-secret intelligence documents down the front of his pants. Dan Rather is caught using forged documents to try to influence a presidential election.
John Kerry slanders a million of his "band of brothers" in bogus testimony before Congress and then continues to lie for the next 30 years, claiming that in 1968 he was sent by Richard Nixon (who wasnt president yet) to Cambodia on Christmas eve (which never happened), hearing the Vietnamese "sing Christmas carols" (the Vietnamese are Buddhists and don't celebrate Christmas) and being fired upon by the Khmer Rouge (which didn't become a military force until a half decade later).
Howard Dean attempts to spread outrageous lies about President Bush about the events of 9/11, only admitting after being caught in his dissembling that he never believed the lies himself. Al Sharpton makes his name by helping to fake the rape of a young child. Ted Kennedy clings to his family name after leaving his "female companion" to drown while he swims to shore to sober up before calling the police.
And Bill Clinton well, he never had sex with that woman!
Al Gore recognizes that if he is going to be of any future relevance, he must join the parade of liars. He quickly reinvents himself by morphing from a quiet, thoughtful policy wonk to a demagogue spewing the anti-American venom and propaganda that has become the coin of the realm in today's Democratic party.
The leadership of the Democratic Party gives a standing ovation to Michael Moores fake documentary, which they know to be nothing more than a lie-filled, hate-filled, anti-American propaganda piece. And Ward Churchill's lies not only gain him tenured employment but elevate him to department head at the University of Colorado.
These are not odd zealots but the heart and soul of today's Democratic Party. From its most recent standard bearer to the newly-minted head of the DNC to its leading voices in "civil rights" issues to its top foreign policy advisors to its House and Senate leadership and beyond, lying has become the partys defining trait, while the few Democrats too decent to lie the Joe Liebermans and Dick Gephardts, for example find themselves with less support among the party faithful than did Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat.
It is dificult to take seriously charges that Republicans are "liars" when that accusation is leveled in books like Al Franken's "Lying Liars and the Lying Lies They Tell." After all, how much credence can one given Franken when he had to testify in a court of law to save himself from a mountain of libel suits that his book was never intended to be taken seriously? The court agreed that no reasonable person could read "Lying Liars" and think it factual and thus the book was published as a fictional joke book.
So why do Democrats lie? Well, for one thing, they have to. Democrats recognize that the vast majority of the American people reject their basic philosophy as they did resoundingly in the last presidential and congressional elections which says that all domestic problems can be solved with forced confiscation and redistribution of income, all social issues can be resolved by more and more government control over the citizenry, and all international questions can be answered by ceding American sovereignty to corrupt foreign powers like France and corrupt organizations like the United Nations.
Further they have to lie because their track record is one of utter failure. The Democrats had 40 years of uninterrupted social experimentation that yielded little to nothing that enhanced our democracy, either domestically or in terms of foreign affairs. Just like the failing regimes of socialist Europe and the failed regime of communist Russia, Democrats cannot point to a single time when leftism including their own hasn't brought despair.
After decades of Democrat-driven "affirmative action", "new math" and "multicultural" experiments, blacks are still disproportionately members of an underclass and our schools (unlike those of the past that created "The Greatest Generation") are now so dysfunctional that we have to outsource the simplest jobs to countries like India. Forty years of leftism has left America more divided, not less divided, as the left pursues its agenda of replacing a "melting pot" that worked with a "mosaic" of multiculturalism, multilingualism and America bashing that clearly doesnt.
These are the tactical reasons that make Democrats lie. Leftists are also liars for philosophical reasons and because, I believe, of psychological aberrations. In the words of former feminist leader Tammy Bruce, leftwing Democrats are "malignant narcissists." In their arrogance, modern liberals believe in nothing greater than themselves and that whatever they say anything that advances their agenda must be "the truth."
The flipside of this coin is that they believe that anyone who disagrees with them must be can only be stupid or liars or racists. In their self-serving, self-aggrandizing minds, they justify their lies in the name of doing the rest of us a favor, the better to get us to do what they believe is the "right" thing.
Believing in nothing but self doesn't just mean rejecting the obvious higher callings of God, freedom, family and country, but even the smaller things that good people once respected and honored are rejected by today's Democrats.
In times past, a journalist might have had the same ideological bent as a Dan Rather, but his respect for his profession what they used to call "journalistic integrity" kept him from being an out and out liar. In the old days, Hollywood's love for the movies compelled them to award the best picture Oscar to what was really the best picture. Today, without regard to the quality of the film, the award is given to any movie that advances the leftists' agenda. This year it was the pro-euthanasia "Million Dollar Baby", in contention with a pro-abortion film and one that touted the work of that known pervert Alfred Kinsey.
In another age, a museum curator placed beauty ahead of personal ideology and thus filled the halls of great museums with exceptional works based on their aesthetic value. Today's "artist" doesn't believe in beauty and thus seeks only to advance their anti-God agenda by filling the space with crosses drenched in urine and pictures of the Virgin Mary smeared in elephant dung.
Democrats lie because, with nothing bigger than themselves to believe in not God, not country, not democracy, not art, not facts, not history, not freedom they believe they themselves to be gods, and thus their beliefs become their own gospel truth." Which is no truth at all!

That's one thing about THIS President. He may not be a smooth talker, but you never have to worry what is is.
Bump for later read.
What a great read!
Ain't that the truth.
BTW, did anyone watch MTP today? Howard Dean was hilarious.....
I agree that W is a straight shooter. It's refreshing. Not a great orator, but one believes him.
Boy, you can say that again. They HATE Joe Lieberman over at DU. Not sure how the author includes Dick Gephardt in the non-lying Democrat category, though.
marked - too good to let slip away
The Dems are scared to death to be called what they really are ..
I was having some trouble with that one also.
"hearing the Vietnamese "sing Christmas carols" (the Vietnamese are Buddhists and don't celebrate Christmas)"
Vietnamese Catholicism was the reason for the war. Catholic missionaries had great success in the 16th and 17th Centuries. The French invaded to protect Catholics in 1847 and remained there.
The South Vietnamese leadership was predominantly Catholic. Cardinal Spellman financed Dr. Dooley's operations there and strongly lobbied President Kennedy for intervention. Dooley's books stirred American Catholic passions.
American Catholics were strongly stirred up by the clergy about the atrocities committed against Catholics and became the strongest support group for entering the war and remaining there.
The Domino Theory was the stated reason but American Catholic furor was the strongest driving force.
Don't know either
Must have missed Gephardt's comment about the President being a miserable failure
So true! Bush does not lie or fake evidence like sKerry does. He is a straight-shooter.
Well done! Thank you for the post!
Didn't the Democratic [North] Vietnamese slaughter thousands upon thousands of Vietnamese Christians, a practice that they continue unto this very day?
