Liberals Mock New Yorkers as Wimps!

{bunped, with updates below}

Man, these Lefties are tough! Step off the plantation for a moment and they eviscerate you, toss you out of the club and into the gutter, spitting hatred and invective. Just ask the people of Massachusetts, who just two weeks ago were the most enlightened people in America, and have become, with the election of Scott Brown, red-neck right-wing racist misogynist homophobes...

The next blue state to be thrown under the liberal bus is New York. Seems as if the Left is a bit annoyed that residents of the city dare to be a bit upset that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to be tried there - what with months of security zones, tri-state traffic jams, millions in lost revenues for businesses and the city/state, hundreds of millions in expenses for city/state, and of course the ever-present fear of a retaliatory attack that could kill thousands, like George Bush did when he launched the original 9/11 attacks with the help of the Mossad.

Here's Ken Gude,from the liberal Center for American Progress:

Obama and the Department of Justice need to get out there and push back very clearly with the public…Frankly, I thought New Yorkers were made of sterner stuff than this—traffic is going to be disrupted?”

Gude has written dozens of articles in defense of trying terrorists in civilian courts, and by Allah he's not going to let the lives of innocent men, women and children stand in the way of seeing his ideology come to fruition. It's not his life that's in danger, it's not his business that's going bankrupt, it's not his commute that will expand by thirty-plus minutes, it's not his taxpayer dollars being spent, so how dare these New York City wimps - the same wimps who ran into burning, collapsing buildings to save their fellow man - deprive him of seeing his dream turn into reality?

Note the anger at the Obama administration for rethinking the trial, and feel Gude's hatred towards his fellow liberals in New York, who he mocks, spittle flying from his lips, in an attempt to belittle the concern they feel for their very lives.

This is the American liberal today, folks. Ideology over all, including reality, and common sense, and concern for the well-being of your fellow man (see Obama, Barack). Now that they have achieved power, and yet have failed to win over a nation too "dumb" to appreciate their largess, their bitterness is turned inwards, towards each other. Blue Massachusetts is scorned, Blue York is mocked, and Blue Jersey gets the back of the hand, all by showing the slightest bit of nonconformity with the extreme liberal position.

Republicans will need to do very little to destroy liberalism once and for all. They can just sit back and watch as they eat themselves alive....

Legal Insurrection has more insane liberal reaction to common-sense sanity here...

UPDATE 1/31: And the contempt keeps coming, from the most likely suspects, of course...Gail Collins at the New York Times:

The Bloomberg rebellion fits right into the sour, us-first mood that’s settled over the country...It’s all part of a cult of selfishness that decrees it’s fine to throw your body in front of any initiative, no matter how important, if resistance looks more profitable.

The problem was inconvenience. People were fine with having the trial here until the police commissioner, Raymond Kelly, started describing his plans for permanently cordoning off a goodly chunk of Lower Manhattan. Businesses and residents hadn’t appreciated what a huge, life-disrupting inconvenience standing up to terror could be.

And no one was applauding them for their potential sacrifice. If anything, they were regarded as saps for agreeing to go along with something that Montana found to be unacceptable risk.

She sounds like my congressman, (Rush Holt, D NJ-12)...anyone who refuses to give up what they have - health care, their earnings, their lives - so that Barack Obama and the Democrats can give it to someone else is now a "
selfish bastard".

While Collins thinks we're selfish not to want to die for Obama's ideology, her colleague Charles Blow says we're
simply stupid:

The president simply couldn’t seem to escape his professorial past, to convey his passion and convictions in the plain words of plain folks, and to breach the chasm between the People’s House and people’s houses.

He’s still stuck on studious.

He seems to believe that if he does a better job of explaining his aggressive agenda, then he’ll win hearts and minds. It’s an honorable ambition, but it’s foolhardy. People want clear goals, clearly defined and clearly (and concisely) conveyed. They’re suspicious of complexity.

H.L. Mencken once famously opined, “No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” I take exception to that. But if you change “intelligence” to “attention span,” I agree wholeheartedly.

The president must communicate within the environment he inhabits, not the one he envisions. The next time he gives a speech, someone should tap him on the ankle and say, “Mr. President, we’re down here.”

So the problem is that President Obama is not
talking down to us enough! We're even stupider than he ever imagined! Yeah, that's the ticket!

Oh, those wacky liberals and their contempt for their fellow never fails to amuse...

Why not hold the trial in Old Bridge--are you afraid the local Wawa will file for bankruptcy?

The JerseyNut said...

We don't have a Wawa...yet.

Surprising for a "town" of almost 65,000.

You thought it was smaller?

I was at the Marriott Marquis in December when the gunman opened fire. All of the surrounding streets were closed; they closed businesses and had employees leave the buildings or move to the far sides of them. All work ceased in this area while the situation played out. I thought at the time how ridiculous to even consider holding the trial in New York; it's not just a matter of being afraid of another attack, which is reason enough. The traffic, the delays, the security - it would put a true burden on the people of the city, and anyone who refuses to see that is playing games with us.
