Editor's Note: This is in reaction to the Middletown Insider blog post of April 13, titled, "Something to Talk About!"
I do want to talk about the three images run under the headline, "Liberal Logic 101." This is my response.
The Middletown Insider posted three images that reflect the blog's ideology. The Insider says, "I am always amazed at the logic of most of the country's liberals, here are some photos to spark discussion."
I am amazed allright. And not surprised that the Insider posts anonymously.
Here, I examine each of the three side-by-side "Democrats" and "Republicans" photos and their captions.
Joe Biden vs. Herman Cain
Please point out which Democratic leaders would ever say such a thing? Thinking blacks are incapable of achieving anything without whites? Radical Republican supporters hate Obama merely because of the color of his skin (same people who think he's Muslim and not a legal citizen). I think this image is an attempt to damage control the hatred that comes from the extreme right.
The reality is in order to achieve anything you need help from people. No matter if they are white or black ... all just people.
Barack Obama vs. Dan Quayle
So your experience as a senator justifies a righteous hierarchy to be voted into a specific public office. This photo and statement is just ridiculous. If however you wanted to play like that then what accomplishments did Sarah Palin have that granted her the experience to be vice president?
Reality is, it's the qualities that the person holds. If Americans agree with those qualities, that determines who is voted into office. You can see this in the republican primary as we speak. The word "quality" doesn't fit any of the republican candidates except for one... Ron Paul.
Sandra Fluke vs. Sarah Palin
Sandra Fluke at a hearing on women’s reproductive health and contraception before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee held on Feb. 23 represented not only herself but many women.
You clearly haven't bothered to read an article about Fluke’s testimony, in which she discussed her friend and her friend’s medical condition, and how her friend couldn’t afford the medication that could have saved her ovary.
“A friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome, and she has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by Georgetown’s insurance because it’s not intended to prevent pregnancy."
“Unfortunately, under many religious institutions and insurance plans, it wouldn’t be. There would be no exception for other medical needs. And under Sen. Blunt’s amendment, Sen. Rubio’s bill or Rep. Fortenberry’s bill there’s no requirement that such an exception be made for these medical needs."
So, freedom of choice and reproductive rights aside, this woman talked about her friend’s ultimately tragic medical condition and ended up being called a slut and a prostitute who should make porn.
Sarah Palin isn't a slut. Though I do have other colorful words to describe her.
Posts like these that fabricate truth to support their failing agenda is what really annoys me. If you see something like this, research what that message is sending and see for yourself what that "message" may be trying to hide.
One thing I do find amusing is that ALL of these opinionated images, clearly republican generated, show exactly how out of touch SOME Republican supporters can be.
