The Sarge: On Liberals and Blind Loyalty to Democrat Politicians
Editors note: The usage of “lib” does not refer to the the classical Jeffersonian “Liberal,” who is liberal in generosity of heart and whose mind is liberated from dogma. “Lib” refers to an individual who is, in fact, very limited in their thinking and stingy of heart–except when spending others’ money.
FROM THE DESK OF OLD SARGE:
In a debate with a lib recently, one of the supposed paragons of tolerance and fairness, they once again alluded to my age in a derogatory way. (If they don’t do that, they insult me via my military service.) Yep, I’m pretty old now; I’ll be 65 in February. The problem for you libs out there is that I know things that you have desperately tried to rewrite history about. I have heard libs on the radio say it was Kennedy who sent troops into Little Rock to integrate schools. It was Eisenhower.
I heard a young man say Calvin Coolidge resegregated the federal government and liked the racist film “Birth of a Nation.” It was Woodrow Wilson, who also revitalized the KKK when they were at a low ebb. I remember when many Republicans, like Charlton Heston, marched with the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr, while Democrats like Bull Conner, Lester Maddox, and Governors Faubus and Wallace belabored them. I remember when it was disclosed that JFK and RFK had King’s rooms bugged. I remember when JFK made himself absent from DC, during King’s historic March on Washington. I remember when JFK left a free Cuban army on the beaches of the Bay of Pigs to be captured. But I also remember when JFK cut taxes, creating an economic boom in the sixties, a phase of our history Democrats choose to ignore.
I served and fought in LBJ’s war while his party engineered our defeat. I remember a Democrat Congress cutting off funds to President Ford, allowing 300,000 Vietnamese refugees to die at sea. I remember the shameful events of Blackhawk Down, during the Clinton Administration, and how we stood by as thousands were slaughtered in Rwanda. I remember the days of my childhood when the GOP was called “the nigger party, by Democrats. I remember when Adlai Stevenson was told, “I think all of the intelligent people would vote for you.” His answer, “Yes, but I need a majority.” I remember that Rosa Parks spent the last 30 years of her life under siege in her apartment, because of threats on her life from leftists who hated her because she would not go along with what was happening to the black community.
Most recently, I remember when Obama pledged to bring us together. What you libs need to really worry about is that people like me will continue to exist, and will keep on teaching young conservatives real history. Death panels…a solution? Hmmm. You can kill my body, but you can’t kill the truth. May our Lord Jesus Christ hold all of you in His mighty embrace all the days of your lives, brothers and sisters.
