“BEYOND THE PALE”
by Joseph DeMaio, ©2014
(Oct. 13, 2014) — The depths to which the Democrats and their oleaginous sycophants have descended in their desperate attempt to hold the Senate have reached a new nadir. Through the Democrat Party’s surrogate mattress-mate “The Agenda Project,” – a regime-recognized “nonprofit” – the electorate is now told that the Ebola catastrophe unfolding in Texas (and soon to come to a hospital near you) has been caused by: wait for it… wait for it… the Republicans.
In one of the most vile and deceitful political ads since Lyndon Johnson’s daisy-picking slander against Barry Goldwater in 1964, this political ad is beyond the pale, but not altogether unexpected from a dying political theory. By now seeking to link the unfolding Ebola pestilence to GOP fiscal policy and asserting that “Republican cuts kill,” the Democrats have unalterably and forever forfeited any claim that they might once have had to responsibly govern a free people.
Stated otherwise, as a political party, its members are unfit to govern a colony of termites, let alone the United States of America.
The ad in question, superimposing out-of-context video images of Republicans uttering the word “cuts” over images of Tyvek-clad healthcare workers contending with the spread of Ebola, and interspersing a few strategic images of dead and dying Africans, ends with the ominous words: “Republican… cuts… kill. Vote.” As the Emperor at 1600’s former aide Rahm Emanuel said: “Let no crisis go to waste.”
Nowhere in the ad, of course, is the actual cause of the Ebola infestation in Texas mentioned: the PC-dominated notion that it is OK to allow Ebola-stricken people into the country in the first place instead of imposing strict travel bans on persons who have recently come from countries where Ebola now metastasizes. To quote the head of the regime’s Center for Disease Control, a travel ban would only “worsen the situation.”
This is the species of “regime-think” that has led to the crisis in the first place. If regime policy is to send troops and doctors across the Atlantic Ocean to the countries where Ebola is running rampant, that is one thing. But allowing infected people into the U.S. from those countries is criminal. It must be stopped.
The “GOP is to blame” ad is intended to run in several states where the Democrats are desperately trying to retain a Senate seat or win one, including Kentucky, where Senator Mitch McConnell is facing challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes. You remember her, don’t you? She is the Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate seat now held by McConnell who, in the space of 40 seconds before the editorial board of the Louisville Courier Journal, refused to confirm whether she voted for the leader of her party in 2008 and 2012.
Quite apart from the hilariously stupid evasions that Grimes coughed up in the interview to avoid responding directly to the question – a tactic, by the way, advocated in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” – the interesting image of Grimes twiddling her thumbs should do little to instill confidence in Bluegrass State voters regarding her dedication to the office she seeks.
Leaving, therefore, the comical and returning to the despicable, the electorate needs to understand that, in less than one month, the future composition of the U.S. Senate will again come before it.
The choice will be relatively simple: will the nation choose to begin the long and arduous, yet critical task of repairing the unprecedented damage that has been wrought under the regime now at the helm; or will it choose to continue happily careening toward oblivion? Will it finally breathe some smelling salts – memo to Bill Clinton: this time, you should inhale – and get down to the business of stopping the destruction of the country by the usurper-in-chief; or will it determine to again renew Harry Reid’s intellectual and physical thuggery?
Clearly, Mitch McConnell is no Thomas Jefferson. But ask yourself this: does it make any sense at all to perpetuate as the capo de capo of the “most exclusive club in the world” a goof like Harry Reid, who hails from the town founded by Bugsy Siegel? Really?
