ETHICS AND MORAL RELATIVISTS
By Jill Cohen Walker, J.D.
me foolish and color me confused, but why are the inventors of moral
relativism suddenly concerned about ethics? Better still, if morals
are relative to whatever a liberal invents in his head, then ethics
don’t really exist for a liberal (which is why the slaughter of
the unborn poses no problem for them). It’s why Obama doesn’t
think an aborted baby born alive should be allowed to live. What matters
to the average liberal is “self,” which is in direct contravention
to the “other centeredness” of the Bible. But I digress.
I just read an article posted on comcast.net that any humor related to Barak Obama’s community organizer days is racist. Give me a break. Sarah Palin and the Republican conventioneers were, as the article eventually acknowledged, responding to hideous digs that she was only the mayor of a tiny Alaska town. Conveniently, the Democrats forgot she’s the governor of the state when they ridiculed her and called her inexperienced.
But say one word about Obama’s lack of experience and it’s racism. This lofty senator from Illinois is not even from Chicago; he’s from Hawaii, Singapore, Hawaii again, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and finally the corruptly run city of Chicago where he evidently found himself completely at home. There he could run for and win a state senate seat that was nothing more than a prop for winning a US senate seat so he could help the radicals (does the name Odinga ring a bell?) in Kenya where 82% want to see him elected so the Muslims can take over the country.
Well, we know what a mayor and governor are and we know what those jobs entail. We even know what state senators and U.S. senators are supposed to do; but we really don’t know what a community organizer does. I looked on the Internet for the definition and went with the first one I found. According to New York City Aids Housing Network, which cited Obama’s pal Saul Alinsky, “Community organizing changes the balance of power and creates new power bases.” Okay, sounds like what he wants to do to the whole country, notwithstanding our Constitution, whether “we the people” like it or not.
An article in the September 9, 2008 New York Times Opinionator by Tobin Harshaw pointed out that Obama may have caused the problem himself by constantly referencing his three-year stint as a community organizer without offering any details. When I was done reading I was still scratching my head. Is that a reason to elect him President of the United States. To better define the issue or non-issue than those who just want to race bait, Harshaw quoted the Weekly Standard’s Brian Faughnan who wrote:
“No one denies that civic activism can be meaningful work. Before she was even elected as a city council member, Palin was engaged in grassroots local politics. According to Time magazine, her first leadership role in her community was as one of a few people chosen to create a police department … Sarah Palin wasn’t denigrating the work of community organizers last night. She was simply making the point that it’s not something so utterly selfless and amazing that a presidential candidate would focus so much attention on it. And consistent with that, you don’t find Palin constantly bringing up her work in Watch on Wasilla.”
Faughnan is right. Many citizens are involved in some form of community organizing and have been doing so for years, especially on the local level. When the nation was founded, federal stuff wasn’t nearly as important as local issues because the federal government wasn’t wandering around in everyone’s business and over-regulating our lives. No digression here . . .
In today’s America, Democrats can do as they please and say what they want and the media doesn’t bat an eyelash. But God help “we the independent conservative people” or those “nasty” Republicans if we so much as sneeze without a tissue or hankie over our dripping nostrils. It’s downright outrageous that the media thinks they can play us for fools this way. I got their message. Mess with Palin enough and we’ll all get tired of her. Well, guess again, kids. The more you mess with her, the angrier and more determined we’ll become. We are, in all honesty, nauseated by your sickening propaganda, lies, hypocrisy, and lack of what this article is about—ethics! Like the folks you vote for, ethics are irrelevant to you when it’s one of your own who breaks the law, robs a local, state or federal treasury, doesn’t wrangle the know-how to pay taxes, or is involved in a scandal of epic proportions. Instead, you swat at gnats with only one goal in mind: to destroy the sovereignty of this nation and, in turn, destroy “we the people.” Newsflash—only evil is that destructive.
Moving right along, another story on Comcast.net was about Palin’s horrible travel spending while Governor. It wasn’t until the end of the article that I discovered she’d spent “$93,000 in 2007,” less than one-forth the “$463,000 her predecessor, Frank Murkowski, spent in 2006. She saved the taxpayers of Alaska $370,000 in one year. Sounds like she’d be great in Washington where paperclips cost a fortune, spending borders on the insane, and the military spends almost five times the amount a regular citizens spends for an airline ticket. (A friend’s husband could have bought the ticket for $280. The government spent $1,900 for the same ticket.)
So here’s a little lecture for Obama and his handlers: If you want to cry “racism” for every comment a conservative or Republican makes, “we the people” are going to fight back at your hypocrisy. Obama’s Black Liberation Theology isn’t exactly Caucasian friendly and those who have never had racist bones in their bodies are getting bone weary of hearing this mantra over and over again. It’s a broken record that just doesn’t play well anymore because by liberal standards only whites can be racists though the truth proves otherwise.
Further, saying that “if you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig,” and something about “wrapping old or dead fish in newspapers” isn’t exactly my idea of presidential or “Obama the Christian” lingo. But as irony would have it, Muslims always refer to Jews and Christians as pigs, among other animals the environmentalists want to protect. And Christians have long used the fish as a symbol of their faith.
I thought I was nuts to go down this road until a caller to Rush today confirmed my suspicions regarding what reporters call Obama’s gaffes or slips of the tongue. Two stand out and make me wonder if he’s speaking some kind of code, including the above-mentioned comments. First, he was going to campaign in all 57 states. Then, this past Sunday he referred to his “Muslim faith.” Slips of the tongue? Well, perhaps. But it’s ironic that there are 57 Muslim states that would be thrilled to see him elected along with 200,000 Germans who came to hear Obama and some rock bands. In fact, the whole world (which can’t wait for the arrival of the anti-Christ) would be ecstatic if Obama won, but they’re not voting in our election. If they really want Obama, let him go to one of their countries and run for office and let American elections be American elections that elect Americans.
