Political Correctness for thee, but not for me, huh?
The ugliness of the liberal's PC philosophy become clear last fall, as they led an unprecedented personal assault on Sarah Palin and her family, one that would have drawn howls of outrage from politicians and the press would it have been directed at Hillary (or Chelsea) Clinton. The horror of "having one's patriotism questioned" if you rooted for American soldiers to die in Iraq is now replaced with the shrieks of "treason!" of one fails to support liberal policies such as cap & tax or nationalized healthcare. And the constant complaints of "loss of freedom" under the Bush administration is now replaced by the constant cries for censorship under the guise of a "Fairness Doctirne".
Today, we have a new turn of perversity from the Left. Apparently, they are encouraging the media and Democratic operatives (whats the matter, p*ssies - too scared to take the fight on yourself?) to attack disabled firefighter Frank Ricci, because he may pose a threat to the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor:
Supporters of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor are quietly targeting the Connecticut firefighter who's at the center of Sotomayor's most controversial ruling.
On the eve of Sotomayor's Senate confirmation hearing, her advocates have been urging journalists to scrutinize what one called the "troubled and litigious work history" of firefighter Frank Ricci.
On Friday, citing in an e-mail "Frank Ricci's troubled and litigious work history," the liberal advocacy group People for the American Way drew reporters' attention to Ricci's past. Other advocates for Sotomayor have discreetly urged journalists to pursue similar story lines.
Heh. When a disabled liberal, or a put-upon women, or a person of minority status sues repeatedly in order to recieve the fairness due to them under the law, they are lauded as brave, courageous, fighters who have sacrificed in the name of civil rights.
When a white fireman, awarded several citations for bravery in the line of duty, fights for the same rights for himself, he is a "troubled" and "litigious" man.
Will the media and the Democrats pick this up and run with it? Maybe. Will they be successful in redefining an innocent citizen (a la Joe the Plumber), via what looks to be an ugly smear campaign, in order to further their radical ideology of racial preferences?
Again, maybe. But all it would take would be for one courageous man to point out in public the vicious double-standard about to be applied to Mr. Ricci. It won't stop the media or the left, but it will inflame the people, who appear to be getting more sick and tired of this leftist doublespeak every day...
