The right is not always "right," but the left is always hypocritical
By Maureen Scott

The use of offensive slang to label a person is never appropriate. However, the continued reaction of the Left regarding Rush Limbaugh's comment about Sandra Fluke and her college co-eds is bizarre at the least. Now Liberals are even criticizing the people who listen to Rush's radio program! They have petitioned his sponsors to drop his show and are demanding that he be taken off the air. All of this hatred because, one time, he dared to make an out of line statement about one female activist. Limbaugh's language might not have garnered approval, but the feigned over-sensitivity of Left-wingers is obviously hypocritical.

Most of these are same people who voted for and still support Obama — a man who, for 20 years, sat and listened to a pastor spew weekly hatred for this whole country and its people. Have we heard Liberals clamoring at Obama for doing so? Did we hear any of them demand that Rev. Wright apologize to Americans? Not a peep!

Obama remained a member of the church where Rev. Wright, with a captive audience during his Sunday sermons, instilled in his congregation the feelings of jealousy, resentment, and anger against other Americans. It was his mantra; part of his Black Liberation theology. Notoriously, he even dramatically proclaimed "God Damn America!" Yet Liberals still have not criticized Wright, as openly or vehemently as they have Rush Limbaugh. Nor have they found fault with Obama for attending Wright's church and listening to the regular, constant, vile comments as he waged his wrath against this country. We have yet to see any Left-wing media talking head or commentator erupt with such fury over Wright, or criticize Obama for his lethargic reaction to the reverend's attacks.

Just where are the Liberals' priorities? Their silence about Wright and his offense to our people (including, of course, those same Liberals) and our beloved country is almost deafening. Wright aroused but a moment of comment. Yet, it is a major national disturbance when Rush Limbaugh comments about bedroom concerns delineated by Fluke. It makes their hearts bleed and their blood boil if one man uses a four-letter word describing one woman but was hardly a tinge of anger over Wright's proliferations of contempt . Is this at all sensible?

Moreover, this singular offense of Limbaugh's has so disturbed Left-wingers that they are now using equally distasteful names for his audience of listeners. It seems that Liberals feel it is perfectly appropriate for them engage in name-calling and using vulgarity toward others.

Please, then, what name is appropriate to describe Obama who, until years later when running for President, found no fault with Wright’s language and his hatred and damnation of America? What term do we use for a father who, along with his wife, took two little girls and exposed them to the disgusting tirades and ugly comments of Rev. Wright’s? What do we call an elected politician who, while serving our country, allowed Wright demean it and never removed himself from the pew during the pastor’s anti-American rants?

Furthermore, what is the Politically Correct term to describe a person who dismisses Wright's comments as being "inconsequential" to Obama's character and who "tunes in" and supports him. We have a leader who, for 20 years, was not at all discomforted by Wright's vile words and hatred, yet Liberals are more concerned with what was said about some gal named Sandra Fluke! Is there a PC word for hypocrite?
