combating liberalism and other childish notions

Congressman Alan Grayson

Congressman Alan Grayson

Let’s see.

Congressman Joe Wilson blurted out the infamous words, “You lie!” during President Obama’s address before a joint session of Congress not too long ago. Because of it, for a time, Wilson was ranked – along with typhoid and severe intestinal cramps – on the list of most hated things in American life.

After all, he had the nerve to speak out against the Messiah-In-Chief.  It probably had to do with his distaste in having a black man in the White House, blah, blah …

(Columnist Maureen Dowd actually heard Wilson use the word “boy” – in her mind.)

The fact is, it was an emotional outburst that was wholly inappropriate, and he immediately apologized for it.

Yet, he was raked over the coals.

What Wilson was reacting to was the assertion by the President that illegal aliens would not be covered under ObamaCare.

One thing President Obama neglected during his speech, however, was the pesky little fact that anyone seeking health care would not – repeat would not – be required to prove their legal right to be in this country. That simple truth effectively made the President’s contention untrue.

Wilson knew this.

Indeed, he may have been wrong in what he did, but he was substantively correct.

Compare and contrast that situation to that of Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, who helped to reaffirm that first-class bone-headedness is not only a spontaneous phenomenon, but it can be premeditated and well-scripted.

From the House Floor, in a prepared presentation, complete with visual aids, Grayson contended that the Republican’s idea of health care reform consists of an easy-to-follow plan: Don’t Get sick. But if you do, die quickly.

It was almost certainly a big hit among those who live on the hard left – which really means mainstream liberalism.

Die quickly.

Does it get any cleverer that that?

It’s catchy; and true to form, it fits nicely on a bumper sticker. It can even be squeezed onto a liberal talking points sheet without having to kill additional trees.

Keep in mind, this exercise in cerebral vapidity was no emotional outburst like Wilson’s. This was a contrived and calculated speech.

He went on to say, “I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.”

Yes, he really said that.

A Holocaust in America. (I’ll get to that in a moment).

Let’s think about his first point – his interpretation of the Republican Health Care Plan. According to Grayson, Republicans – who simply do not want the finest health care delivery system in the world to be transformed into one of government-run rationed mediocrity – not only want people to get sick quickly (if they must), they wish to see them die as soon as conceivably possible afterward.

In other words, as a conservative (and also a registered Republican) I am one of those who want people to get sick and drop dead post haste. So does my wife, apparently. And my kids. Mom, too.

We all want people to become ill and die quickly.

It sounds perfectly reasonable, doesn’t it?

Remember, to Grayson and his comrades, conservatives aren’t just on the other side of the debate. They don’t just have an opposing view from theirs. They are bad. They have ulterior motives. They are sinister. They want people to die.

This is the depth of liberal thought in modern America.

This is why libs should never be in charge of things that require adult thinking.

Now, onto Grayson’s second point – a Holocaust in America.

I’m willing to wager a vital body appendage that most of you had no idea that there was a bona fide, honest-to-goodness Holocaust ongoing in the United States of America today.

I didn’t.

Mr. Grayson, THIS is the human atrocity that was The Holocaust.

Mr. Grayson, you DOPE, THIS is the human atrocity that was The Holocaust.

Does Mr. Grayson understand what the Holocaust actually was? Does he have any conception of the unspeakable horrors that are associated with the Holocaust? Does he not understand how he cheapens the atrocities that took place during the Holocaust with his mindless, childish, asinine show-and-tell speech about the supposed health care “crisis” in this country ? Has he no respect for the millions and millions of murdered innocents, their families, and survivors of the death camps?

How ironic it is that liberals, the ones who are constantly pushing to make sure no one in any segment of the population – save for conservative white males – are ever offended for any reason whatsoever, are conspicuously silent here. Grayson – a liberal’s liberal if ever such a thing existed – has drawn from the blob of intellectual excrement that lives between his ears to compare the uninsured status of a very small percentage of Americans to the brutality and horror that was the Holocaust – and no one on that side of the aisle seems to be bothered too much. Does Grayson believe that there is a single Holocaust survivor who will say, “Right you are, Mr. Grayson. It feels like Nazi Germany around here!”


In Grayson’s mind, the uninsured of America are comperable to the slaughtered Jews of the Holocaust.

On his radio program today, talk show host Dennis Prager wondered where the Anti-Defamation league was on this issue? After all, making light of the Holocaust is one of things the ADL is most vocal about.

Grayson is a liberal, however. Perhaps different rules apply.

As Prager said, “He owes history an apology. He owes moral clarity an apology.”

What is it with lefties who reflexively pull out the Hitler card when they’re on the ropes or lack the substance to defend their arguments?

If America had a dollar for every swastika that had been used as a substitute for the letter “s” on anti-Bush protest signs, everyone in the country would have their health care paid for two-fold with enough left over for a pack of Manhattan-bought cigarettes.

Meanwhile, like the media assault on Congressman Joe Wilson a couple of weeks ago, I’ll patiently wait on the outrage against Alan Grayson to bubble up.

I’ve got nowhere to go.

    Damn good point, the contrast between Wilson and Grayson is spot on. Grayson should be REMOVED from Congress for acting like a 5 year old moron and reducing our highest legislative body a pathetic circus.

      And I’ll tell you something … I’m still waiting for someone – anyone – to show just a touch of outrage over this. David Letterman’s cavalcade of sex romps grabs headlines across the map. Yet, some moron from Florida compares health care coverage to the extermination of six million Jews, and no one blinks.

      A “pathetic circus” is a terrific phrase.
