Isn’t It Funny How Liberals Detest Any Public Mention of Christianity…

November 27, 2012

…except in cases where Obama is made into the image of God?

You can’t mention Christmas in a public school.

You can’t have a nativity scene in a public park.

You can’t display the 10 commandments in a public building.

And yet there’s this….

And this…

Here’s a question for the Freedom from Religion Foundation….

Are my rights being violated any time someone mentions Obama in public?

It’s sure starting to feel that way.

    Nonsense. I’m quite liberal, and I talk about Christianity every day, and hardly ever about Obama, since he’s a “moderate” – MAYBE a bit left of center. A liberal President would never accept conducting war by drones, in which more innocents are killed than the intended targets.

    Sorry about your unease. Political speech is protected more emphatically and specifically by the First Amendment than religious speech is, so no, your rights aren’t being violated. You just don’t like hearing it.

      “A liberal President would never accept conducting war by drones, in which more innocents are killed than the intended targets.”

      Your entire comment is intended as satire, right? I hope…

      I’m curious–based on what gauge is Obama a moderate? The left/right continuum as I understand it is the further to the left, you get more government control and the further to the right, you get more individual control. Far-left is a totalitarian state and far-right is anarchy. From that perspective, Obama is extremely left-wing.

    Generally, the only thing I’ve said about Obama in public is that I’m disappointed in his support of the drone wars. Even though it doesn’t risk American personnel, it creates dozens of future terrorists for each one it kills, by blowing up innocent non-involved civilians. It’s a terrible series of evil and misguided actions to be using drones. Hasn’t he ever seen a western? The son of the man the gunfighter kills always grows up and back-shoots the fast gun.

    Regarding the definitions of left and right wing:
    They are not always talked about the same way, and I agree with you that it helps to define terms.

    Historians consider fascism to be the extreme of the far right expressed in government; Hitler, Mussolini, Latin military juntas, the Greek Colonels in the 1960s, the Shah of Iran.

    By the same yardstick, Communism is considered the farthest left; Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro.

    The “big govt./small govt.” dichotomy is philosophically artificial. Both right and left in PRACTICE, get and use as big a government as they can build, and control it and individuals as completely as they can. I also think the big-small thing is irrelevant, when the real question is better vs. worse. Some problems require a lot of people and money to work out, like energy and transportation grids. Others, like interpreting the Constitutionality of laws don’t take many people to perform – only time.

      That doesn’t explain anything, you’ve just listed names and not what characteristics would define the continuum. Probably like most “liberals,” right-wing is anything that you don’t like and left-wing is anything that you like taken to its extreme. Therefore, wherever you are is moderate.

      No, big/small government is not artificial. Small government is a right-wing trait based on the freedom spectrum. Anybody who favors larger government is on the left side of the spectrum, no matter what their political label.

      The real question is, indeed, better vs. worse. Bigger is worse. Period. Eventually that power you’re giving to your “better” government is going to be wielded by one you don’t like. And since “better/worse” is subjective, and since you self-define as liberal, I can guarantee you that your “better” government terrifies the shit out of me and I want that to be as small and weak as it can be.

      Given enough time, your kind will interpret words like “shall not” to mean “well, maybe in cases if the guns are scary looking or if the speech offends moslems.”

        To be more specific, right wing believes the government ultimately gets the last word on who owns how much of anything, and left wing at the extreme believes in collective ownership of everything. Both versions promote the idea of government over individual choice. In that way they are identical. This vision of individual superiority and a limited government size is LIBERTARIAN, not right wing.

        Obama has members of both parties as advisers, and in his cabinet. He initially proposed approaches like a jobs bill and a budget that contained elements each side favored. That’s the evidence that he’s a moderate. Even Obamacare is a compromise with only incremental change, compared to single-payer, which is what the liberals wanted and still want. It’s based on previous Republican-sponsored approaches to health care reform. Obama keeps trying to meet in the middle, and when forced to he moves slightly left. To me, that’s left-center moderate.

        “The right wing believes the government ultimately gets the last word on who owns how much of anything”

        Never mind, my first thought was correct. You’re an idiot.
