"Civil" Opposition to Evil?Rather than face their constituents like men and women, the Democrats are desperate enough to blame the American people, with Nancy Pelosi calling angry town hall protest participants "Un-American" and declaring them to be swastika-bearing Nazis. Note that these were the same lowlifes who spent the last eight years telling America that dissent is the highest form of patriotism. While I don't disagree with that premise, we now see that the neo-Communists of the national Democratic Party don't really believe that dissent equates to patriotism when the people are dissenting against their policies.
It is for this reason that I must confess to finding Lamar Alexander's reaction to some of our protesting brethren troubling:
Alexander signaled that he did not approve of the methods used by an audience that heckled and booed Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at an event in Philadelphia over the weekend.
On a personal level, I think very highly of Lamar and respect his desire for civil discourse. I know few people who do not wish for civility. What Lamar seems to think, however, is that out in the country it is somehow beneficial to behave as though we are in the chambers of the United States Senate. Lamar Alexander has not yet grasped that this debate is not about mere politics. This health care plan, if passed, will essentially force taxpayer funding of aborticide. The quasi-socialized system could cause the elderly, the disabled, and the chronically ill to be denied care. Some may be encouraged to enter palliative care before it might otherwise be time. All of these things are bad, and the taxpayer funding of aborticide is reason enough to reject the entire proposal. The truth of the matter is that this health care proposal, combined with the President's other major policies, represent a very pure form of evil that has come to us directly out of the very pit of Hell.
The people are beginning to understand just how devious these proposals are, and they are riled up. The Democratic leadership are afraid of the public reaction because it will show the general population that their plans are not being universally accepted, but are being actively opposed. When you are opposing something that is-for all intents and purposes-intrinsically evil, you don't sing Kumbuya with the opposition while saying "this is bad." It sends the signal that you are tolerating an intrinsic wickedness, when you have a moral duty to oppose it with every fiber of your very being.
The matters at hand presently before the country are not mere issues of political debate, but are literally questions of good vs. evil, on which there can be no fence-sitting or middle ground. Evil must be opposed by every morally acceptable means possible, and then when the evil is defeated, we can discuss "civil" political discourse.
