Who’s Polarizing Now?

posted at 1:49 pm on October 3, 2010 by

Remember how leftists were accusing Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck of being a polarizing figure after and especially before his “Restoring Honor” rally? He was too outspoken, not nuanced enough. Well, how about this?

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz at “One Nation”: “We must fight the forces of evil – the conservatives.”

He went on to say that:

They want it for them, they don’t want it for the people. They talk about the Constitution, but they don’t want to live by it. They talk about our forefathers, but they want discrimination. They want to change this country.

If that’s not “polarizing,” I don’t know what is. “They want discrimination”? Really? Strange, I’ve never heard, say, a Tea Party speaker advocate reintroducing segregation. In fact, if memory serves me well, Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally featured several prominent African American speakers, who demanded an end to Obama’s “divide-and-conquer”-politics. If conservatives “want discrimination,” why is it that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, was happy to accept Beck’s invitation to speak at his event, that stressed moral values such as honor, honesty and respect?

As usual, it is the so-called liberals, not conservatives who are trying to divide the country and who count numerous polarizing figures such as Ed Schultz among their ranks. You’d almost think that they are simply projecting their own beliefs on the conservative movement.

You can watch Schultz displaying his unbelievable amount of hatred for conservatives in this video:

Schultz doesn’t really care about either side. He’s just interested in advancing the cause of Schultz and sees this as one avenue.

The most striking thing about Schultz was he really said nothing. It was all platitudes and nothing or substance.

I don’t need to look…

I’ve heard that stuff for over 40 years.

It just shows how much of a disgusting lying sack of !@#$ Schultz really is and how disgusting that crowd of socialists really is.

Bah. This is a dog-bites-man story. Man-bites dog would be some of the things my so-called fellow conservatives have said about me in the last month.

Big fat bunch of hypocrites.

Ed “Porky Pig” Schultz claimed he could get 300,000 people to the mall. It was easy. If Beck could, he could easily do it. Hell, anybody could do it.

Ed Schultz is a disgusting life form masquerading as a human being.

One should really be suspicious of a group that constantly uses deception and deceptive labels for themselves to achieve their goals.

The left used to like to use the word “Liberal”, but anyone that analyses their agenda should see that it has nothing to do with the concept of “Liberty”, as implied by that label.

The same can be said for their new deceptive label “Progressive” meaning they are all for Progress.
Progress towards what?
The old failed ideas of Marxism?

Even responding when a communist calls you a racist/bigot is self-defeating.

And if he did not get 300,000 or even 100,000, no problem just claim there were more there than in Becks rally based on a satallite picture no one sees. I am assuming of course they were not referring to the one from the plane which was missing a few hundred thousand of the people they claimed were there.

However they did not say it was the numbers of people there on 8/28, but rather 8/29. That actually seems to be the day they counted the people, the normal flow of people moving between the momuments now that we have it referenced with this socialist/communist rally.

It does appear that few were actually listening to the speakers, or cared about what ever they had to say. It might have been a bit hard to miss the out in the open, here we are, socialist and communist rubbing elbows with them. Maybe a few will go home and consider that in the Kennedy and Kruchev era, where Kruchev said that communisum would destroy America from with in, pounding his shoe on the podium to make sure we got it, that “they” are the ones Kruchev was speaking about, his army of socialist and communist that would defeat America and bring it under the control of a soviet style communist government. Maybe they will ask themselves if that is what they want for their life and their children. Hopefully enough people who did not realize these socialist and communist were behind the democrats agenda will see the light.

It was no surprise that Obama did not show his face there. It is well known that he has associations with socialist organizations. As a communitive organizer he could have hardly avoided it. Lets not forget that he was a New Party canidate in the late 90′s. The New Party’s aim was to get politicians elected with a binding loyality oath. When the time came they planned to split off from the Democratic Party and form a new socialist party with its memebers already in office. To there surprise they got the whole democratic party. We should not forget that his childhood mentor was Frank Davis. Davis has a profound influence over Obama. Davis was also a Moscow appointed member of the Communist Party USA board. CPUSA was well represented at the rally. Might have bumped into old friends with cameras rolling. That would not have been good for him. So off to Camp David where he could pretend everything was okay and that he is the greatest president the nation has seen.
