It’s time to play ‘Liberal Progressive Hypocrisy’ and I think we have a great example for today. Consider these descriptive adjectives used by liberal progressives, including the President describing their political enemies: taking hostages, holding a gun to the head of the American people, tea baggers, extremists, jihadists, suicide bombs strapped to their chests, confederates, spousal abusers, just to name a few. Now how long do you think it will take liberal progressives at outlets such as Mother Jones, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and Think Progress to go apoplectic about this statement, “In advocating for greater debt, President Obama and his liberal progressive acolytes are abusing America’s children and grandchildren by stealing, like common thieves, that which is most precious: their hopes for a secure financial future.” Just wait, here it comes…actually, they’re just mad because I’m telling the truth. They are indeed the party of the jackass.

“The Liberal Strategy: Pulverize the Republicans” by Angela Graham-West

TRCC

by The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela West

This morning I woke up and decided to check out any news that might be in the forefront. I knew that the Pope is resigning by the end of the month — seems sort of strange, almost like he just gave two weeks’ notice …. After skipping through the regular crime and weather stories, I ran into two articles — one in the Huffington Post called “ Republicans Need to Deal With Their Racism Problem” written by some music writer, pretty vacuous stuff and then “The Ignorance Caucus” written by Paul Krugman.

Paul Krugman, an American economist, is well known and well respected. He tends to slant much of his writing towards his political views, but so be it. Very seldom do you find a truly “objective” writer of any stripe since any good piece is the sum total of the facts presented from the prism of the author. The piece goes on to declare the inherent intellectual superiority of the liberal and decry the intelligence and “critical thinking skills” of the Republican mind. In fact here is an excerpt:

For these days his party dislikes the whole idea of applying critical thinking and evidence to policy questions. And no, that’s not a caricature: Last year the Texas G.O.P. explicitly condemned efforts to teach “critical thinking skills,” because, it said, such efforts “have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.”…

So…….. Some GOP members in Texas decide that they do not want to teach “critical thinking skills” and this thought translates itself to Krugman painting the ENTIRE GOP in say, New Jersey or Illinois as having a low intellect level. By the way, who is this representative of ALL GOP members who happens to live in Texas? And HOW can we get in touch with him? Recall the problem that the New York Times writers have had in the past with fictitious interviews…… can anyone say Jayson Blair?

Nevertheless, Krugman finishes with his this little gem:

The truth is that America’s partisan divide runs much deeper than even pessimists are usually willing to admit; the parties aren’t just divided on values and policy views, they’re divided over epistemology. One side believes, at least in principle, in letting its policy views be shaped by facts; the other believes in suppressing the facts if they contradict its fixed beliefs.

For my supposedly “ignorant” GOP friends, he is implying that we have a difference of opinion regarding what knowledge is and how it is acquired. Read: the Democrats are high functioning creatures who allow their policy views to be shaped by facts. The GOP who are low functioning creatures tend to be guided by feeling — if something does not go along with our “feeling” then we suppress it. Now does this type of thinking describe any of my friends on this page?

To one degree or another, we all tend to be closed minded. We shut out those queues and ideas that do not conform to our beliefs. Our perception becomes our reality. J. J. and Eleanor Gibsons’ work on perception argues that understanding human behavior first involves careful analysis of the information available to any perceiving organism. This applies to the human organism — NOT JUST LIBERALS. In other words, Krugman’s OPINION regarding the cognitive abilities of ALL Republicans is not worth the amount of ink or air space that it occupies. … It is way too cool now to beat up on the Republicans and we take it.

What do you think?

Dr. Angela West Speaks Out

By: Dr. Angela West

Dear Facebook Friends:

First and foremost, I have been married to Allen West for over 23years. We have NEVER had a bout of violence. I am a wife, mother and businesswoman. During my marriage we have together accomplished a great deal, we married in graduate school and progressed through our professions. I have been published and travelled throughout the world. Both of our daughters are talented in their own respects with the eldest taking two beauty titles in the recent past. The Allen West that we (Aubrey, Austen and myself) know, is very intelligent, well educated, speaks several languages, well travelled, and tireless in his quest to make a difference in this world. We, as a family , volunteer, mentor, and give of our time, effort and personal treasure.

I know that many of you have seen the advertisement put out by Patrick Murphy ‘s campaign or his father or his campaign manager or ………. It really does not matter who put it out from his camp, it was and is offensive. Take a look at the stereotypes:

. A hint of gleaming gold between a gap toothed smile;

. A boxing clad Allen West (he does not box) punching out not one but two white women —- one old and one young (both white).

. Stealing the money from a crying, helpless Black man and his crying helpless son (Really? — That might just be the way that old Tom Murphy would like to see most Black men —- crying and helpless.)

. Then finally, the money shot which is the most vulgar of all.

So, as you know, Allen was interviewed on Fox News this morning , during which he asked an important question: Where are the Black leaders who have no compunction protesting what they feel is considered “racism”? Well, here is a real gem:

NAACP spokesman Hillary Shelton said he watched the ad several times, specifically looking for the concerns raised by West, and saw nothing.

“Racist is not a term I would utilize to sum up this commercial,” Shelton told The Huffington Post. “It looks like a traditional, political, partisan commercial.” 

“The language utilized doesn’t present Allen West as a stereotype of an African American,” Shelton said. “The ad has him looking very well groomed, a serious look on his face and he’s wearing a suit. The only thing superimposed is a boxing glove as a symbolic analysis of his policies being inconsistent with the values of retirees, women and African-American families.
OH.MY.GOD.

NO WONDER WE HAVE SUCH PROBLEMS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! Does this man, Mr. Shelton, even know what policies Allen West represents? Self reliance, self respect, family, education and direction. Not victimhood, as represented by the crying Black man and his son. No, Mr. Shelton, your type is out of style and you are making the NAACP into an irrelevant body. Your type is not new though, Booker T. Washington wrote:


“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (p. 118)

No excuses , Mr. Shelton, exist for your ignorant observation. Murphy is what we expected him to be , an opportunist for a weak son; hoping to buy his son job and himself access to greater treasure and business deal in Washington. The casting of the crying Black man and boy are exactly how he views you also. Playing the race card is one of the disgusting tricks of Murphy’s trade, to which he has no excuse. You have no excuse for not seeing this and proclaiming yourself a spokesperson for the NAACP.

Rep Allen West – “There are people on the other side that are actually tracking every little thing I say”

The Congressman related a story to his audience about the time one of his staff members introduced him to a Think Progress article titled “Rep. Allen West’s 15 Most Outrageous Statements.”

“So, I go around and there’s a website she has up,” Rep. West explains, “And it was hilarious!”

Why is it “hilarious”? Rep. West explains:

There are people out there on the other side that are actually tracking every little single thing I say. And they had the top ten things that Allen West is saying. And you know? It really started to look like a bunch of whiners: “He said nuts!“ ”He said he doesn’t want a liberal message in America!“ ”He said…”

You know?

What I can’t understand for the life of me is how people on the other side can certainly dish it out, but when you stand up on principle, when you tell them what you believe in, they can’t take it! They act offended and they act hurt.

Rep. West’s remarks were met with cheers and applause.
