HOBGOBLINS OF THE LEFT

When it suits their purposes, liberals like to roll out that creaky old adage about consistency being the hobgoblin of small minds. But the line in its entirety, as written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, is: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”

Those on the Left would like us to believe that when they go, for instance, from reviling James Comey one day to adoring him the next, they have simply garnered additional information about the man and changed their opinion accordingly. None of that little-minded consistency for them!

But the truth is, the only thing that changed about Comey is that Donald Trump fired him. Because they despise the President more than I hate kale, anyone he attacks automatically becomes a political martyr worthy of sainthood.

That is the nature of their consistency. They are as predictable as the sunrise. If Donald Trump is in favor of lower taxes, they insist they be increased to record levels. When Barack liar-nObama indicated a willingness to sit down with dictators, they applauded his statesmanship; when Trump agrees to sit down with Kim Jong-un, their heads explode. When liar-Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive who had bilked American investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars, they yawned, turned over and went back to sleep. When Trump considers pardoning Gen. John Kelly, a man who had dedicated his life to defending America, their hair goes up in flames.

Or consider what happened to Roseanne Barr for pointing out that Valerie Jarrett, Barack liar-nObama’s gatekeeper, bore a certain resemblance to a gorilla, compared to what happened to Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump, whose only sin would seem to be that she’s related to the President, a vile obscenity. Ms. Barr had her top-rated show canceled by ABC in the blink of an eye, whereas that same evening, Ms. Bee was applauded at a TV awards event and honored for her political courage.

It’s also noteworthy that whereas the Left is always deeply concerned with collateral damage when it comes to our battling Islamic terrorism, the fact that the cancelation of “Roseanne” cost a hundred innocent people their jobs didn’t concern them in the least.

⦿  Perhaps nothing underscores Trump Derangement Syndrome more than the fact that porn slut Stormy Daniels and her sleazy mouthpiece Michael Avenatti were able to raise $550,000 for legal expenses from America’s most obliging pinheads.

⦿  Until I read an article in an old copy of The New American, I hadn’t been aware that there is a worldwide movement devoted to aborting Down Syndrome babies.

There is a part of me that can understand and even empathize with parents who don’t wish to undertake the raising of a mentally-handicapped human being. And, yet, people suffering from the disease always seem to be smiling and happy. They take pride in accomplishing those tasks they are able to master and seem to be, without exception, friendly with strangers and affectionate with their family members.

We’ve all been touched by the video of the competitors at a Special Olympics who all stop running when one of them falls during the race. They all help him to his feet and then link arms so that they cross the finish line tied for first.

I have had more experience with these people than most. Years ago, because a producer wanted me to write a TV movie about a Down Syndrome teenager, I researched the subject and got to meet several of them. They were all very sweet and polite. I don’t mind mentioning that I had a very different experience when I sat in on a support group meeting of homosexuals for another TV project I had been signed to write. For reasons that never make sense, neither movie wound up being green lighted by the network, but I was only disappointed in the first instance.

Years later, Yvonne and I wound up living next door to a group home for Down Syndrome victims. There were half a dozen of them ranging in age from late teens to mid-20s. There was an older woman who oversaw the house, but the guys all held down jobs and were proud of that fact. Again, they were very nice, very helpful and extremely appreciative of every bit of neighborliness that came their way.

That’s why I am so angry to hear that in Iceland, the abortion rate for embryos found to have Down Syndrome is 100%; in England, 90%.

One can’t help thinking that Margaret Sanger, the satanic founder of Planned Parenthood, whose theory of eugenics was turned into state policy by Adolf Hitler, would be so very glad to hear the news.

Interestingly enough, Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who discovered the chromosomal premise for Down Syndrome, acknowledged that there was a price to be paid by those who had it and by their parents. But as a devout Christian, he went on: “But we can assign a value to that price. It is precisely what a society must pay to remain fully human.”

ALERT ALERT

“Stop Mass Hysteria”  Michael Savage On Current Media Frenzy: It’s Like A Virus, An Epidemic… It Will Die Of Its Own Oxygen Deprivation 

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft interviewed Dr. Michael Savage on his latest book “Stop Mass Hysteria” this weekend.

“Stop Mass Hysteria” COULD NOT come at a better time. And our discussion with Dr. Savage on this subject was timely to say the least.

Dr. Savage discussed the history of mass hysteria in America from the Salem witch trials to the Trump-Russial collusion witch hunt.

Michael Savage also shared his thoughts on the mass hysteria surrounding the Brett Kavananaugh confirmation hearings.

Dr. Michael Savage: Let me just say starting from the beginning that there is a huge difference between mass hysteria and justified concern. And this is something we have to understand. There are imagined threats and then there is real danger as we all know. And this is an imagined threat – That Kavanaugh poses a threat to all women on the planet that he’s a mad rapist. That he will be on the Supreme Court running around and making the climate of rape more acceptable. This is the greatest example of mass hysteria since the Trump derangement syndrome. And it is a continuation of course, of the hatred of Trump and their hatred for those of us who supported Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s agenda more than Donald Trump. It’s really not about Donald Trump it’s about the agenda which is largely based on modern nationalism that I offered for many, many years.

Dr. Savage is truly brilliant. He publishes a book on mass hyteria and the the Kavanaugh confirmation comes along.

Dr. Savage goes on to say the number one greatest threat facing America today is radical Islam. “For the last 1,400 years radical Islam has been at war with the world. This is not Islamophobia as the mainstream media would have you believe. It is history.”

Michael Savage took some time to bash CNN in his chapter titled “From Salem to CNN” where he compares the two asking, “They’re not too different are they?”

Michael went on to describe the real “war on women” is the radical feminists who are actually debasing feminists and debasing women across America with false accusations, or exaggerated accusations.

Dr. Savage talked about the danger of mass hysteria, “It’s like a virus. As a trained epidemiologist it’s really like an epidemic. It’s almost a medical situation, this madness is very similar to an epidemic that continues to spread though a population without discriminating who it attacks. That’s the point. And so in stopping mass hysteria I try to bring real history to the discussion rather than straight polemics.”

Near the end of the interview I asked Michael about what will eventually the end of mass hysteria. Michael offered this, “We have to believe at the end reason will trump hysteria. We have to believe. I believe this mania we are living through will die of its own oxygen deprivation.”

Let’s hope Dr. Savage is right. He usually is. God help us.
