Ethics are for losers (i.e. conservatives)

October 9, 2010

 

I am a crook, but I don't care.

 

So Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters won’t have to face their ethics charges until after the elections, well isn’t that convenient.  If you are a rabid dog conservative like I am, certainly you must be thinking of the double standard all liberals seem to be given on questions of ethics.  You ever truly wonder why that is?  I don’t mean bitch about it in passing, but actually sat and thought about?  There has to be some reason why one group of people is held to a higher standard than another in regards to politics.  Lets see what we can figure out.

First you have to understand conservatives will never win an argument with a liberal about ethics or morality.  Its kind of like the saying, “Talking to a wall.”  You can not argue with someone about morals when they are completely lacking in that department.  In fact, they are so vacuous when it comes to principles, they truly don’t even understand your argument, it’s a different language to a progressive.  The only principle a liberal has is to win at all costs.

Winning is the goal, that is all progressives care about.  In a less tangible more metaphysical sense you could argue it is power that they truly want, but they have to win to get the power.  Additionally, the sheer act of winning elevates their childlike egos that have never truly recovered from the first time they were told they were not good enough for the football team.  They have to win because in their mind, it proves they are not as empty and shallow and afraid and hateful as they themselves know they are.  Their worst enemy is losing, because it reaffirms the self-loathing they hold in their souls.

This ultimate goal to win allows no moral flexibility like conservatives love to attribute to liberals, they have no morals to be flexible with.  The ends justify the means is exactly that, but we attribute the wrong ends to the cliché.  The ends is to win.  What they do with that power is another story all together, mostly a self-sacrificing attempt at destroying everything they feel has wronged them in their whiny worthless childhoods.  Rich people went to private schools, outlaw them.  Someone called you a faggot cause you liked to wear pink to school, pass hate speech laws.  Teacher gave you a bad grade and you crapped your underoos, remove grading systems and hell, let’s get rid of the evil red marking pen.

 

Saul Alinsky

 

If you haven’t read Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals, then you truly do not understand the enemy we face in America.  This isn’t a racist thing, or a democrat/republican thing, but it is most certainly a liberal vs. conservative thing.  His 4th tactic is the one most pertinent to the subject, and as soon as you read it, the light bulb will click on.

“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

The corollary to this would be the unstated, “And never let them saddle rules on you to live up to.”  Starting to make sense why there is a double standard?  Trent Lott said something nice about an old dude and cya sucker.  Robert Byrd was a freaking KKK member, and we re-elect him for 50 freaking years.  A KKK member has no book of rules (they were the terrorist arm of the Southern Democrats, their purpose was to win elections), you can’t make Byrd resign over something he doesn’t see as wrong.  Sure he’ll say what he needs to say to get the dumbass conservatives off his back, but he’ll be damned if he resigned.

How about Barrack Obama?  He went to a racist anti-American church for 20 years.  We complained because by our standards there is no way that man should even be a senator let alone president.  But we have got to understand my conservative brethren, the people who matter have no standards.  No rules that can’t be broken.  Wanna get drunk and leave a woman to die in a lake?  Go for it.  Wanna “forget” to pay your taxes?  Have fun.  You get the picture.

So we come full circle.  Is anyone truly surprised Rangel’s and Waters’ ethics charges will  not be addressed until after the elections?  Come on, deep down inside you weren’t surprised.  You know what else, you won’t be surprised when they get off with a slap on the wrist.

    I’ll be honest with you, Colin. I have been accused more than once of holding the Republicans more responsible for their actions than the Democrats. I will even go so far as to plead guilty to that charge. The reason for that is my dismay at seeing so many conservatives being exposed in their own sins, so to speak. So again, I plead guilty to that charge.

    Having said that, it is high time people like Maxine Waters and Charlie Rangel are held accountable for their actions. It really bugs me when I hear them talk about the charges, because they either dismiss them or try to blame someone else. In no way, do they want to take responsibility for being so lacking in the ethics department. Because of that, it is not surprising to see any investigation being put off until after the election.

      Me and my wife were talking about this last night. My contention was that conservatives have a rather naive look at the world and people, we like to expect the best out of people. So when one of ours falls from grace, it is a shock and a surprise and of course we demand their heads. Conversely, progressives expect the worst out of people. Therefore they are never surprised when one of theirs is shown to be the scumbag they always “knew” them to be.

      This is a fallacy I fear we must get over if we are to defeat these people who want to literally ruin the country. And unlike Glenn Beck, I do not feel their intentions are good, they just go about it differently.

      I added you to my blogroll just now, don’t know why I didn’t do it earlier, I really like your blog.
