I’ve been called all kinds of names by Obama, Pelosi and Biden. But being called names by George Bush sort of takes the cake. Not that I don’t expect it from him, too.
Remember it started with McCain calling us agents of intolerance.(pre-2000) Even that was only warming up for McCain’s wrath against conservatives..
I don’t mind so much anymore. It is kind of flattering by now to be such a high target on Bush’s list. I mean you never hear him call liberals or Democrats names. In fact, he has little criticism for them at all. Nothing.
It is pretty revealing whom people choose to pin with their worst labels. But was Bush really ever a conservative at all? He is following the McCain, Obama, Biden formula.
So we get nativist, bigot, hater, intolerant and all the rest. He laces his top speeches with critique about us. What gives? I mean why all the anger at us? It’s not like we are jihadis.
That is the point, he can criticize us but then tempers his words on evil barbarians. But then he can go even a step further. When he does have to criticize evil monsters if a situation calls for it, like the 9/11 anniversary, he must also slur it right on over to those right-wing conservatives. Heap it on them real good.
So what does he do? He compares the mentality of the 9/11 terrorists – now that is the correct term for what they were – to us conservatives and regular Americans.
In his speech from the Shanksville 9/11 Memorial ceremony, he tosses in his best criticism. Is that the time and place for it? No, but that doesn’t matter. It is a public opportunity for open ridicule and, buddy, he is not going to pass it up.
“And we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home.
But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit.”
Ah, the same foul spirit – get that euphemism for evil? Isn’t that nice how he works that in? What does that have to do with 9/11 or the sentiments of those who attacked us?
Never mind. He goes on in his domestic criticism saying:
“I come without explanations or solutions. I can only tell you what I have seen. ” — G W Bush 9/11 speech.
No, we are getting his inherent bias and slander about us, not what he has seen. It is his opinion camouflaged as fact. But then he does a strange two-step to at least recognize the objects of the ceremony — honoring brave citizens.
“At a time when nativism could have stirred hatred and violence against people perceived as outsiders, I saw Americans reaffirm their welcome of immigrants and refugees. That is the nation I know. (Applause.)” /…
“Twenty years ago, terrorists chose a random group of Americans, on a routine flight, to be collateral damage in a spectacular act of terror. The 33 passengers and 7 crew of Flight 93 could have been any group of citizens selected by fate. In that sense, they stood in for us all.”
But wait, might any ordinary Americans be the type of people he refers to as “nativists?”
So he has a little problem when he criticizes fellow Americans. He praises them when he wants to and reserves his harshest criticism for Americans. Does it make sense?
It’s bad enough when we hear this bullshit from the Left at every opportunity — when they are the ones who are racists and bigots — but hearing it come at us from Bush is pretty rich. Especially when Bush’s own bigotry will not allow him to criticize the Left, terrorist thugs, or radical Islamists on Jihad.
It is the “same foul spirit,” indeed. So he seems to have taken a page from the Left’s hymnal lately. They have been calling us Taliban. And Bush’s speech went over with them huge. They loved the references. He finds more comfort attacking us than the Taliban.
From nativists to foul spirits, Bush can sure sling them. While doing it all just to preserve and protect his precious legacy from any criticism. We’re disposable deplorables.
It was not George W Bush’s speech that offended me so much, but the fact it was written and scripted that way. He seems to have a lot in common with the lunatic Left. The only time we hear from George W. Bush is when he is attacking fellow Americans.
