From a piece by Colbert King, in the Washington Post:
The angry faces at Union rallies are eerily familiar.They resemble faces of protesters lining the street at the University of Alabama in 1956 as Autherine Lucy, the school's first black student, bravely tried to walk to class.
....Those were the faces I saw at a David Duke rally in Metairie, La., in 1991: sullen with resentment, wallowing in victimhood
Union members, as with their forerunners who showed up at the University of Alabama and Central High School, behave as they do because they have been culturally conditioned to believe they are entitled to do whatever they want, and to whomever they want, because they are the "real Americans," while all who don't think or look like them are not.
Whoops! Sorry! As Steve Martin used to say in his famous SNL sketches, "Naaaaaaaaaah!"
Perhaps she is right. Perhaps I've been wrong to blindly follow the traditions and superstitions of the past centuries. Maybe we barbers should test those assumptions analytically. To experimentation and scientific method. Perhaps this scientific method could be extended to other fields of learning. Like natural sciences, art, arcitecture, navigation, perhaps I could lead the way to a new age. An age of rebirth. A Renissance!
Colbert King wrote that column in March of 2010, about the Tea Party (I switched out the phrase with "union" twice in the excerpt above). To date, Mr. King sees nothing wrong with the actual physical violence committed by Left, but continues to project racism and hatred upon people who have demonstrated neither.
Time has proven Colbert wrong, as even the far-Left National Journal is forced to concede:
But liberalism - if it about anything - is about never having to say you're sorry. Or admit you're wrong, either.
But actually, there's no need to. The media will cover for you. After all, they're into liberalism for the exact same reasons...
