H/T: Fellowship of the minds
Today I want to highlight a post over at The Matt Walsh Blog It is entitled Hey progressives, let me explain why you should detest Obama . Matt's audience and commentators include leftist progressives (I have re-named them REgressives*) and he highlights one of the more nasty responses that he gets from them.
A multitude of left wingers read this blog. They generally make their presence known by sending me volumes of lovely emails and Face book messages. Here’s an example of one I received after my last post about Obama. This particularly articulate liberal showed great restraint as he voiced his disagreements in a coherent and scholarly fashion:*******
[Readers need to go to the site to read the trash talk comment. It's just not language that I want to include here.]
After you read the second paragraph HERE you can also read what Matt has to say about each point he makes in his post:
1. The One Percent
Progressives, you hate corporations and you resent the corrupting influence of money in politics? Well, guess which millionaire president cuddles with Goldman Sachs executives every night while he falls asleep on a bed of money? The guy has raked in millions of dollars of campaign contributions from corporations and big banks. And he gives back — oh does he give back. Obama has handed trillions of dollars in bailout cash to bankers on Wall Street and fat cats in swanky corporate offices. Obama loves the rich. He’s done more to steal money from the middle class and give it to the one percent than any president before him.
2. Anti War
Liberals, you were “anti-war.” What happened to that? Pick those signs back up. Take to the streets again. News flash: Obama has troops occupying more countries than Bush ever did. He’s got military on the ground in 24 African nations, he’s deployed forces to Yemen and Syria and Libya and Egypt. Three times as many troops have died in Afghanistan under Obama than under Bush. I thought you wanted to bring these men and women home? Obama’s got them spread all over the globe.
3. Civil Liberties
Copy of points made:
(They were all too good to leave out!)
Liberals, you’re all about civil liberties? Isn’t that what you claim, or claimed? Obama has been Dick Cheney on steroids when it comes to civil liberties and privacy. He signed the NDAA into law. He assassinated American citizens. He oversaw a massive expansion of the surveillance state, including monitoring the phone records of every American. He extended the Patriot Act. He mandated the Insider Threat Program that requires government employees to profile their coworkers. His Justice Department has spied on journalists, and all of his agencies have been absolutely brutal on whistle blowers. Obama never met a civil liberty he supports and wishes to protect.
4. The War on Drugs
Liberals, I thought you hate the War on Drugs? Good Lord, Obama has spent 300 million dollars trying to keep medical marijuana away from cancer patients.
5. Evil Guns
This president has shipped automatic weapons (you know, the scary kind) to criminals and murderers all over the globe. He sent them to the drug cartels in Mexico. He sent guns and grenades to militants in Egypt and Syria and Libya. He sent weaponry to Somalia. Obama is a HUGE fan of guns, just not when they’re in the hands of American citizens.
Obama doesn’t even pass liberal muster on racial issues. He was supposed to help lift minorities up and bring them to new heights in American society, instead they’ve suffered mightily during his tenure. Black unemployment has skyrocketed, the median income of black families has dropped, and the wealth disparity between blacks and white has doubled under Obama. Maybe it’s the white half of him that’s causing all of that. I don’t know.
You guys should be more angry at him than I am. He’s simply been everything I knew he’d be, you all are the ones he used and betrayed. I knew he’d be a nightmare, but you folks thought he’d be your dream come true. Now, was this your dream? THIS? Really? Look around you. Look through the haze of your partisan passions and see reality for what it is.
I truly admire Matt's attempt to reason with the REgressives. However, it appears to be thankless job because of the difficulty to get through to them!
The Bible tells us in the book of Jude that some who are involved with evil will be pulled "out of the fire" before it's too late. But there will be many who will ignore such a call - to their own pitiful detriment!
Over 90 comments there, but I responded to one in particular:
Jud 1:24 Now to Him who is able to keep you[fn] from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
Jud 1:25 To God our Savior,[fn] Who alone is wise,[fn] Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power,[fn] Both now and forever. Amen.
(1:24) M-Text reads them.
(1:25) NU-Text reads To the only God our Savior.
1:25) NU-Text omits Who . . . is wise and adds Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(1:25) NU-Text adds Before all time
