Miss California's unforgivable mistake

Unhappy truth that it is, the self-anointed intellectual giants called liberals never quit adding chapters to the book of their arrogant hypocrisy. Here are the latest additions.

As you most likely know, Miss USA Pageant judge Perez Hilton was so offended by the crude, stupid quality of Carrie Prejean's answer to his question about same sex marriage that next morning he couldn't resist the compulsion to inform the world about its intellectual deficiencies in the manner by which liberals give these kinds of lectures:

So it was that he called Miss California a "dumb bitch" later making it known he was thinking something uglier.

But Hilton was feeling so full of brilliance that he couldn't allow himself to write just one chapter. So, next day on the CBS Early Show, he churned out another when co-host Julie Chen asked him to provide an example of how Prejean could have answered while remaining "true to her beliefs."

Hilton responded with this:

"As a future Miss USA, it is my job not to be a politician, but to be someone who represents and inspires the women and the troops, and I think it's great that the states get to decide for themselves."

He then added, ". . . she would not have had to insert her own personal politics into it."

Now, let's consider what his suggestion asks us to believe:

(1) Liberals detest public figures (including Hollywood stars and college professors) who behave as "politicians."

(Perhaps in another universe! And for the record, Ms. Prejean was no "politician," for she spoke honestly and unequivocally in Plain English, not as a cowardly, doublespeaking liar.)

(2) Liberals think it "great" that state legislatures ought to decide the issue of same sex marriage, not liberal activist judges or even activist mayors.

(Who knew? And wouldn't we love to hear about all the other issues liberals believe it "great" for states to decide?)

(3) Liberals scrupulously avoid inserting their personal politics into questions before the nation.

(Silly us, for believing that just as sharks will die if they stop moving, liberals will croak the moment they fail to insert politics into any issue!)

So, if we keep the truth about liberal behavior in mind, we dismiss Hilton's crocodile suggestion in favor of the notion that nothing short of repeating from the Credo of the Liberal Church would have exempted Ms. Prejean from the vicious ad hominem attacks typical of "perfectly rational" liberal discourse.

However, what Americans, especially young Americans, must realize is that liberals have long been institutionalizing this kind of ugly, culture-corroding behavior.

For example, do you believe in the Jeffersonian view that Supreme Court justices ought to confine themselves to their sphere of government as they meticulously rule according to the principle of Federalism?

If you do, you will be slimed as follows and not from a run-of-the-mill liberal or even a prominent liberal but from a liberal regarded as a "lion" of the Senate:

"Robert Bork's America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens ..." (Ted Kennedy, putting his vast intellect on full display as he opposed seating Judge Bork on the Supreme Court)

Do you believe that for reasons pertinent to national defense, the economy, social stability, the environment, and national sovereignty, government has the obligation to secure the nation's borders and enact thoroughly reasonable immigration policies?

Then liberals will condemn you as a vile racist or contemptible reincarnation of a Know-Nothing.

(Of course, hateful, finger pointing liberals think nothing wrong with regarding members of any susceptible group as cattle they can use to fatten up the Democratic Party. Indeed, that fattening is so important to liberals that they have never employed their expertise in conducuting national outrages to attack anti-American businesses that in the name of money horribly exploit illegal aliens.)

Do you oppose transforming America into a stagnant, spiritless, nanny state such as Sweden? Moreover, do you oppose any attempt to achieve that goal by stealing an astounding 10, even 20, trillion dollars from future generations?

Then, you'll be smeared with every epithet from the liberal slop bucket, the first of which is certain to be "racist," the second "fascist."

Those are but a few instances of the vicious, mindless attacks that flow from the megalomanical arrogance of the liberal mind.

But they are sufficient to make two points:

. . . Carrie Prejean's unforgivable mistake was refusing to bow to political correctness as defined and demanded by the American left.

. . . An angry, hateful absolutism regarding mere political ideology corrodes the moral fabric of any culture. It can produce nothing good including advancing a useful national discussion regarding same sex marriage, civil unions, etc.
