Over the years I’ve told my conservative friends that when liberalism becomes fully consistent with its operating assumptions, it will self-destruct.
Unfortunately, until that happens there will be a lot of collateral damage.
Recently we have seen liberals say and do the most absolutely stupidest things that reveal how bankrupt the Left really is. They are wild-eyed hypocrites whose policies enslave millions of people while they go about life claiming that their legislative acts are the best thing for our world while they live high above the hoi polloi.
Here’s the latest bit a liberal self-righteousness and self-destruction.
Rush Limbaugh gave a waitress a tip of $2000. Nice gesture, right? Don’t bet on it.
“A waitress turned author claims she received two generous tips of $1,000 on two separate occasions from conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh — but she couldn’t find it in herself to keep the ‘blood money.’
“Instead, she allegedly donated a ‘sizable chunk’ of Limbaugh’s $2,000 tip to an abortion charity.”
I’d like to see the receipt. And if it is truly ‘blood money,’ then why did she keep any of it?
Many years ago, I had driven to a used bookstore in the Squirrel Hill section of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every time I have a chance, I check out the latest offerings at these fast-disappearing treasure troves of old and discarded books.
I had called the store to get directions, telling the lady who answered the phone that I was building my collection (now totaling around 25,000 volumes) and was interested in purchasing a sizeable lot if the collection that had been advertised was what I was looking for.
I made my way down to the store, parked my car, and noticed a lady driving a big station wagon trying to squeeze the behemoth of a car into a parking space positioned between two cars at the curb. Being the helpful sort, I commenced to help her by giving her some hand signals letting her know how close to the curb and the car she was backing up to.
When she finally maneuvered her tank into the space, she got out of her car and proceeded verbally to rake me over the coals, telling me that if she had been a mad I never would have offered to help . . . blah, blah, blah.
I didn’t say a thing as I noticed her walk into the bookstore that I had called. I followed at a safe distance. While browsing the shelves, I heard her tell the young woman at the desk that a man had called yesterday and would be coming in today to look at a collection of books.
I kept browsing for about a minute as I made my way up to the counter and informed the two ladies that I was the man who had called, and no, I would not be buying any books today.
I’ve run into liberals who are mad at the world and there is no way to console them. They will do the most destructive things and blame their woes on other people.
In the case of the waitress who won’t take Rush’s “blood money,” she instead would rather donate to a cause that is truly built on blood money, a procedure that has been called “black genocide.”
I’m reminded of a passage from Paul’s second letter to Timothy: “they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all” (3:9).
