Throwing It Right Back: Liberal hypocrisy about Joe Wilson
Promoted by Jeff
You knew someone was going to find it. The folks over at Mere Rhetoric have:
Now, I was no fan of President Bush’s plan to privatize Social Security (mostly because there was no “opt-out entirely” provision). However, while liberals claim that Joe Wilson’s shout during Tuesday’s speech was “unprecedented” and “racist,” we can see the Democrats were just as capable of such behavior.
And they didn’t apologize for their outbursts afterward.
George Bush was called a liar nearly every day in the newspapers and on television, by political activists, by people like Michael Moore and Janeane Garofalo (still waiting for her to go to the White House on her knees over cut glass) and by the Democrat leadership during his administration. Liberals have lionized the recently released reporter who threw his shoes at President Bush during a press conference in Iraq.
During the Bush Administration, liberals told us dissent was patriotic. They were right then since dissenting with your government is one of the most patriotic things an American can do. Their claim now that dissent against Barack Obama is racist or unpatriotic is hypocrisy of the highest order.
I’ll leave you with a few more videos of President Bush, Senator McCain and others getting jeers, boos and more from liberals.
Isn’t it so fun to throw liberal’s words right back at them?
No embed link (and I don’t want to bother trying to mash out code) but John McCain being heckled in Denver.
