PAUL BEGALA EPITOMIZES THE HYSTERICAL POLITICAL LEFT
By Christopher G. Adamo
Likewise, Republicans and Conservatives who believe that the political issues presently facing our country can be solved through reasoned discourse and compromise between or among the opposing political parties, interests, and philosophies are simply out of touch with reality. Any doubts that this is indeed the case can be quickly laid to rest, in light of recent statements from Paul Begala, formerly a key political strategist in the Clinton administration.
Throughout the Clinton years, Begala worked in concert with “hatchet man” James Carville. Neither Begala nor Carville has ever done an honest, respectable job of intellectually promoting the Democrats' Liberal Leftist political and social agenda, since their chosen political strategy never required them to do so. Instead, it has been the sheer force of the nastiness and venom in their propaganda that the Liberal Democrats have relied upon in their endeavor to overwhelm debate and conceal or grossly misrepresent the message of their political opposition. Apparently, Begala is still at it.
At a recent gathering of the “Campus Progress National Student Conference” in Washington D.C., Begala actually asserted that Republicans seek to kill Americans. In an almost surreal statement referencing to 9-11, he began:
But then, in a virtually seamless transition, he asserted:
It is noteworthy that, in his bizarre ramblings, he completely blurred any distinction between al-Qa'ida terrorists who slaughtered three thousand innocent people, and Republicans who managed to implement a meager tax cut for Americans.
Actually, such mindless rhetoric has long been a staple of those on the political Left. At the first sign of Conservative opposition, Liberals immediately respond with epithets of “Fascist” and “Nazi,” as if the application of these labels truly buttresses their case.
The true nature of the tyrannical political regimes that bore these labels during the 1930s and early 1940s is altogether irrelevant to Liberals, who refuse to seriously ponder the iron-fisted roles of those regimes in the lives of their respective peoples, and how the efforts of Fascists and Nazis at “thought control” and intimidation and suppression of dissent were far more reflective of the Liberals' concept “political correctness” than of any attempts by Conservatives to intellectually prevail.
Instead, it is enough for Leftists to hurl hysterical accusations, always gambling that their loyal following will not seek to learn the reality behind such rhetoric. And, for the most part, they have been right to make this assumption, especially during recent decades, when the Liberal Left held a virtual monopoly on the dissemination of information.
Now, however, mainstream America gravitates away from the Liberal media and towards alternative sources of news and analysis. But Liberal Democrats remain acutely aware that, if they are to have any hope of retaining the loyalty of their “political base,” they must continue to fan the flames of radicalism that brought them political dominance during the 1960’s and thereafter.
So, to this day, the same mantras, the same name-calling, and the same denials of reality are regularly invoked as the core of their political strategy.
Furthermore, it should not be assumed that individuals like Begala represent only the extreme Liberal Leftist “fringe.” At the very same event where he peddled his venomous diatribe, another noteworthy speaker was Bill Clinton himself. While both Bill and Hillary Clinton seek, at times, to portray themselves as “Centrist,” or "Moderate," Democrats, neither of the Clintons is the least bit uncomfortable revealing his or her truly radical bent and ultra-Liberal ideology at gatherings of this nature.
It must be clearly understood that Paul Begala is not the source of a problem within Democratic Party circles, but is, instead, an outward symptom of the true nature of the Democratic Party and its leadership. Begala's outrageous and hysterical statements are a reflection of the usual propaganda disseminated by Democratic Party leaders and their allies in the Liberal Leftist media. Amid similarly shrill allegations, for example, the Democratic Party/media cabal grossly exaggerated the fabricated crimes of Karl Rove and the alleged misdeeds of Tom Delay.
Meanwhile, the same people regularly turn a blind eye to the horrendous security breaches of former Assistant Attorney General Jamie Gorelick and former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger, among others.
If Democrats can keep Republicans on the defensive, they consider themselves victorious. And they remain indifferent to the resulting moral boost this continually gives the terrorists. Apparently, the endangerment of America is an acceptable risk, when the Democratic Party’s political future is at stake.
