The Human Rights Campaign recently held a plush soiree featuring Democrat senators and left-wing B-List celebrities. With gay marriage forced on the US by the Supremes, is there any reason for this organization to even still exist? Except to exist as a Democrat-Left front organization? Probably not, but throwing parties for senators and cable TV celebrities has to vastly superior to any jobs these people could get in the real world.
“There was a giant cloud of smug above Rachel Maddow when she was doing that. Liberals have to be careful not to sound so fucking condescending and smug… and start actually engaging the other side and persuading people.”
That cloud of smug is larger and thicker than the smog over Beijing on a bad day. I’d settle for the left being less deranged and violent; it’s not in their nature to be less arrogant and condescending. The social-democrat left is identity politics, and inherent in their identity politics is the belief that they are smarter and better than everyone else. When Obama described non-progressives as bitterly clinging to guns and religion and Hillary referred to us as “deplorables,” these were not gaffes, this name-calling was calculated to appeal to the left’s sense of superiority.
Let’s face it, any attempt by the Democrat-Socialist Left to pretend they care about working class voters is going to come off more forced and phony than Hillary attempting a southern accent.
*ICYMI, Andrew Sullivan’s obsessive belief that Sarah Palin faked a pregnancy to cover her daughter’s out-of-wedlock teen pregnancy was the “Russians hacked the election” conspiracy theory of 2008; except since McCain lost, the media didn’t have a reason to obsess over it as much as he did.
BTW: Hillary’s #1 Twitter fanboy is still butthurt over the loss; which he blames on… try not to laugh, I dare you… biased media. This guy wanted to be Hillary’s bottom boy as bad as Sully wanted to have Obama’s caramel-colored babies.
Are you getting tired of being lectured by Hollywood know-nothings? It got old for me a while ago – mostly because I’m smarter than they are and am really put off by stupid people who think they are saying something insightful. – Joel Hirst
Considering that Celebrity wisdom consists of insights such as “My moral compass is in my vagina,” I think he couldn’t be more spot on. (Imagine if a man said, “My dick is my moral compass.”)
