Question of the day: Why were not the same liberal hypocrites (Obama Media Group “journalists” included) who are so disgusted by Mitt Romney’s (earned) wealth not similarly disgusted by the (inherited) wealth of John Kerry? Or that of the Kennedy boys? Or the net worth of scumbag-extraordinaire Jon Corzine, who still bundles oodles of cash for the O-man?
Need we even mention the billions of dollars of wealth owned by the equally-hypocritical Hollywood Elite? This is yet another basic tenet of the religion of American Liberalism, folks; can you guess which one it is?
Selective Liberal Outrage
Think about it: Rush Limbaugh (wrongly) calls Sandra Fluke a slut. All hell breaks loose on the left. Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin a cunt? Nary a peep from the left. In fact, Regime mouthpiece Jay Carney not only refuses to condemn Maher’s comments – he pathetically tries to differentiate between a “political commentator” and an “entertainer.” Uh huh, Jay, nothing quite says “entertainment” like listening to a woman being called a slut.
Of course, selective liberal outrage doesn’t stop with wealth and political ideology; it’s an effective tool in the ever-popular liberal practice of race-baiting as well. The embarrassing Trayvon Martin circus was only the latest case in point: From Tawana Brawley to Rodney King to the Duke lacrosse players – the art of selective outrage has been honed to perfection by the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan – not to mention a supporting cast (of thousands) of liberal “journalists.”
Anyway, back to the evil (conservative) rich. During a supposed discussion of financial ethics with left-wing Harvard professor Michael Sandel on NBC Today last week, co-host Ann Curry decried the injustice of (rich) people being able to pay more to get through airport security faster (than non-rich people):
“There’s an inherent unfairness to it; it’s about those with money having an easier life than those who don’t. And there’s something fundamentally unfair about that.”
Uh – I have a few questions, Ann: Are you one of “those with money”? As a result, would you say that you have “an easier life than those who don’t” have money? So, are you honestly ticked off about the whole airport thing, perks of the wealthy in general, or is this just another example of feigned selective outrage by another liberal hypocrite? For those of you keeping score at home, the correct answers are: Yes. Yes. Yes.
Curry went on to be even more awesome – making this brilliant (barely understandable) observation of American society:
“Until America becomes fair in terms of how able people are – can be to make money, until the playing field is fair, it is unfair.”
Sounds like Curry has been tutored by renowned linguist Nancy Pelosi in the art of effective communication skills, huh? Her disciplined command of the English language is breathtaking.
Lest we hammer too much on poor, card-carrying, left-wing loon Ann Curry, we must remember: These people are given their talking points and marching orders. It’s their life – it’s what they do. Besides, she did offer up a bit of guilt over her past (and current) actions when faced with the whole preferential treatment at the airport thing:
“I’m not sure I think it’s fair. It’s something I’ve done, and I have to say that I always feel guilty about it. I mean, you are paying for a service – but one time I came out of a plane and I was in first class, and they stopped everyone who was in coach from even exiting the plane until we all got out and I just wanted to put a bag over my head. It just feels, there’s a sense of, I’m kind of better than you are. And I don’t – I don’t think that is right.”
Apparently, you don’t “always feel guilty about it” enough to stop doing it, huh Annie? (Notice how she couldn’t help but justify the preferential treatment by saying, “I mean, you are paying for a service”? Hysterical.)
Life as a rich liberal must be a bitch; so much righteous attitude – yet so much “easier life” to enjoy.
