Original message
Consider the Source
We have been told by the defenders of those who murder abortion-providers that such heinous actions are merely a heroic attempt to save lives.

We have been told by self-proclaimed Christians that torture is acceptable, and humane treatment of our enemies, real or perceived, is something Jesus himself would never condone.

We have been chastised by adulterers and pedophiles about our lack of morals and strong family values.

We have been admonished by bigots and bullies for seeking equality for those of a different color, religion, or sexual orientation.

We have been labelled anti-American for chaining ourselves to fences in protest of a way of life that includes endless war by people who accepted the act of chaining a young man to a fence, beating him, and leaving him to die, in protest of his alternate lifestyle.

We have been called irresponsible by the so-called fiscal conservatives who have spent our nation into unprecedented debt.

We have been admonished for being mindless sheep who believe everything we hear by the fans of mindless idiots who admonish their audience to believe everything they say.

We have been called unpatriotic for refusing to ignore the plight of our troops caused by the very people who sent them into combat ill-equipped, and who ignore their needs when they return home, wounded in body and mind.

We have been warned about lazy Welfare Queens by politicians who accept government handouts to subsidize their personal interests and family businesses.

We have been preached to by self-anointed spokesmen for Jesus about the dangers of loving our neighbor, being our brothers keeper, caring for the poorest among us.

We have been lectured about the Constitution by people who supported a president determined, at best, to ignore it and, at worst, to circumvent it at every turn.

We have been told by media pundits that broadcasters who incite violence against fellow citizens are simply Americans exercising their freedom of speech and that speaking out against an illegal war is un-American.

We have been assured by pseudo-journalists that misleading the public by commission or omission, or presenting opinion as fact is simply part and parcel of freedom of the press.

We have been called intellectual snobs for deigning to be informed of the facts, and being articulate enough to communicate without mangling the English language.

We have been called elitists by politicians who live in well-appointed gated communities, and have their chauffeurs drive their children to private schools, and themselves to their exclusive country clubs.

We have been scolded by diaper-clad brothel customers and public bathroom sex solicitors for our lack of sound character and moral rectitude.

We have been laughed at for our insistence that global climate change is a reality by people who insist that the earth is 6,000 years old, and dinosaurs peacefully co-existed with man.

We have been belittled by alleged upholders of the law for demanding that the law actually be upheld.

We have been laughed at by those who cling to self-imposed ignorance because we keep ourselves well informed.

We have been railed against for our dirty tactics, lack of transparency, and underhanded dealings by those who have used the same tactics, hidden their malfeasance, and brokered backroom deals as a matter of course for decades.

And throughout all of this, we have not resorted to violence against the government in power, nor have we threatened the lives of those who have sinned against us as a nation.

We have not murdered those who are anti-choice and called it a life-saving measure. We have not threatened the lives of the children of politicians who sent our children into a war based on lies.

We have not encouraged our spokespeople to incite those who are angry to take matters into their own hands, nor have we defended the actions of those who have.

We have not twisted the words of Christ to mean something completely contrary to their true intent. We have not used Christianity as a sword by which to rid ourselves of those we disagree with, nor a shield to hide behind when we know we are wrong, nor a banner under which to raise armies to fight for causes we know to be unjust.

We do not embrace lies when the truth is inconvenient, or fails to serve our purpose. We do not use those lies as a means to pit citizen against citizen.

We have been repeatedly called terrorist sympathizers and now those who hurled that epithet are blatantly promoting domestic terrorism.

What is happening in our country at this minute is not a matter of right and left, but a matter of right and wrong. It is not the manifestation of a difference of opinion, but the end result of fomenting opinions that inevitably lead to anger and violence and justifying that end result by labelling death threats as innocuous, isolated incidents, and the perpetrators of violence as merely well-meaning but frustrated citizens.

Now is the time not for all good men to come to the aid of their party, but for all good men to come to the aid of their country. The lines are being drawn, and the clarion call to battle has been sounded.

Where we go from here is not a matter of ones individual political persuasion. It is a matter of our collective adherence to the law, and our sense of purpose as a nation. And those who would attempt to persuade us otherwise are the enemies within and should not only be acknowledged as such, but dealt with accordingly.

Treason is a serious allegation; it is word that should not be treated lightly nor invoked unadvisedly.

But there are traitors among us this night - and we all know who they are. And so do they.

75. Welcome to DU - and ALWAYS read Nance -
agreed about the bishops; check out the part of the OP regarding Christianity. If you're fairly new here, be sure to mark Nance as a favorite. I guarantee you'll never be disappointed. Sad, sometimes, angry a lot, and occasionally laughing your ass off - but never, ever disappointed.

16. Four-thirty in the morning Eastern Time is one of the very best times
to enjoy taut prose, well-directed and entirely in focus, with flawless mechanics and nearly unlimited scope on a pertinent topic.

The other times that are really good for the same experience would be any other time of day or night, the experience itself made accessible by this OP's adherence to the tenets of excellent writing.

A skill and talent evidently lost on some observers.

17. Perfect
This is going with me today to my weekly writing group -- a group of women who talk as much, or more, about politics as writing. This piece is an example of excellence in both. Ironically, one member of this small group is a former nun, two are married to former priests, a third is married to a RINO, and all are staunch Dems and Obama supporters. Thank you for this, Nance.

20. There is a "Great Awakening" in this nation...
Out here in Nebraska, people are disgusted with the GOP, an amazing feat in itself. They are not as eloquent as you, but they voice many of the same sentiments.

Slowly, people are rising up against the neo-conservative "aspect", there is a realization that it has all been smoke and mirrors, and the time has come to move this nation forward. The latest moves by the R's has just about everyone fed up with them, and the newest "idea", Repeal of HCR is a serious loser.

Rants such as yours have done more than can be measured in the change of attiude. Although people often run from the truth, they still face it and understand it in the long run. We are winning this ieological battle because we have ideas and are not afraid to implement them, and the more we do, the louder the RW will howl...and that's music to my ears... :hug:

24. Another gem from the oracle of reason
with succinct precision that cuts the heart out of a demonic cult bent on tearing the nation and earth asunder for profit and totalitarian power. A great kickoff to the day.
Here's a link to a long string of distortions and propaganda from the face and voice and leader of that demonic cult. Everything changes once the lying starts.

does not include Tim Kaine, nor Barack Obama, nor Joe Biden, all of whom agree with Palin and the Tea Party that Barney Frank should not have equal rights.

any one that you mentioned above say that they don't believe in equal rights for all people.

To compare them to Palin and the Tea Party is unusual.

Edited on Fri Mar-26-10 08:36 AM by lunatica
But for once I would like for our side refuse to go to this war. Let it wage itself among the Tea Party run Republicans while the rest of us move on to make this country a better place. Everything you say is true but even at a snails pace we've been winning since the mid term elections of 2006? That isn't an accident. Admittedly it's difficult to see the forest when you're among the trees, but it's still there and North still guides us to the other side if that's our goal and we look up to get our bearings from the Sun. They fight with no clear goal. We fight with a clear vision of what's right.

59. Hell, YES you can, Nance.
TREASON is THE fucking big deal.

Insurrection is being fomented; history is repeating.

Can you say death of the Weimar Republic?
This liberal democracy eventually lapsed in the early 1930s, leading to the ascent of the NSDAP and Adolf Hitler in 1933. Although the constitution of 1919 was never officially repealed, the legal measures taken by the Nazi government in February and March 1933, commonly known as Gleichschaltung ("coordination") meant that the government could legislate contrary to the constitution. The constitution became irrelevant, therefore 1933 is usually seen as the end of the Weimar Republic and the beginning of Hitler's "Third Reich". Per Wikipedia, my emphasis added.

And who benefits? Not bloody likely We the People.

63. All excellent points
It always amuses me the way that those who bill themselves as "fundamentalists" and "strict constructionists" will tie themselves in knots to explain away the bits they don't like, whether of the Bible (all that hippy socialist stuff about not judging others lest ye be judged and rendering unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar) or of the Constitution (listen to their contortions on the 16th Amendment, or even on Article 5. They're not especially keen on the 13th thru 15th Amendments either, though they won't come right out and say so).

65. And a kind suggestion: Let's NEVER use the term "Tea Party". It's "Terrorist Party"
Let US control the meme for once!

74. Bookmarked. Emailed. Saved to hard drive.
Nance, your eloquence never ceases to amaze me. This particular post, however, is one for the books - the history books of brilliant authors in our time.

Thank you.

You have a way of clarifying what can sometimes be confusing to most of us. I so appreciate your words. They give me comfort in the knowledge that I am on the right path.

81. Great one, Nance!
I missed being in time to "K&R" this one upthread, so will do it with my post!

:kick:

Those who most loudly call themselves "pro-life" are not pro-anything that will enhance or improve life once the fetus is born; those who most loudly proclaim "family values" don't practice anything remotely like them; those who draw most attention to their "Christianity" don't follow the teachings and precepts of Christ towards anyone who does not agree exactly with their definition of "christian"; those who are most concerned about fiscal responsibility only pontificate about that concern when Democrats are in power and when spending money might actually improve life for everyone instead of an already favored few; and those who most loudly proclaim their "patriotism" are the last to put their own lives on the line for their country.

As you note so well, their actions are not at all what they preach.

Those who are truly any or all of these live their lives in those ways without having to "remind" everyone of that. As you have stated so well, they also do not have to harm physically those who believe or act differently, however much they may despise, excoriate or condemn those beliefs or actions.
