ON CORRUPTION, PARTISAN POLITICS, & HYPOCRISY
By Christopher G. Adamo
Long before the abominable events and disclosures of the past few days, those on the political Left have been fixated on an agenda that erases or denies the enormity of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, and every preceding circumstance that led up to the attacks. Yet, for America to let down its guard, even in the face of other crises, is not an option.
Certain significant facts stand out in this discussion. First, it cannot be denied that U.S. President George W. Bush has vigorously pursued the enemy in his “War on Terror.” Just as inarguable is that, by doing so, America has remained safe from subsequent attacks. But these are two “dots” that the Liberal Leftist political machine, and its cohorts in the “mainstream” media, do not want Americans to connect.
To that end, every outrage occurring within the borders of the country is being trumpeted by the Left as a reason to ignore the terrorist threat, since, in so doing, Democrats see their electoral fortunes improving in the November, 2006, congressional elections. But, while other matters at hand clearly need to be confronted, America had better remain unshakably vigilant as to the activities of the Islamists, who are hardly resting during this time, but, instead, are undoubtedly working with fierce and relentless determination to ascertain how to take fullest advantage of America’s distracted state.
Conservative America is rightly appalled at the recent revelations of deviant sexual behavior perpetrated by Florida Republican Congressman Mark Foley. Yet, their abhorrence for his actions transcends any political consideration. Such perversity warrants immediate removal from office, and, if appropriate, the severest punishment allowed under the law. Of that, there is no dispute, at least on the political Right.
Let those on the political Left vent their phony outrage and dismay, and, in so doing, display their abject hypocrisy. All of the disgraceful situations in question, from the moral abominations represented by Foley, to the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” mindset that enabled him to continue his sordid behavior, to the appearance of national weakness that gives hopes of victory to Al-Qa'ida, result from that societal dysfunction known as Liberalism.
Consider, in contrast, the reactions of Liberals to such revelations within their own camp, when the principal in question was former President Bill Clinton and his inability or unwillingness to control his hormones. In rapid succession, Liberal Democrats told the nation one lie or distortion after another. First, America was told that such activities never happened. Then, when the body of evidence became undeniable, the sexual activity in the Clinton White House suddenly became a matter of Bill Clinton’s “private life.”
Concerned Americans were castigated over a matter that was “only about sex.” Finally, the shameless hypocrisy of the Left reached a crescendo as it attempted to regain the moral “high ground” by accusing the President’s critics of engaging in the “politics of personal destruction,” at the behest of a “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.”
Inevitably, such unconscionable political posturing was all that the Left ever had to offer as a “fix” for its problems. In the end, no real attempt was made to correct the situation, and, in the years that have followed, Clinton loyalists have done their best to recast their disgraced leader as an icon of statesmanship.
Meanwhile, the storm clouds of Islamism gathered, along with plans by the North Koreans to build themselves a nuclear bomb. And all of the finger pointing, red-faced denials, and tantrums of the perpetually juvenile former President cannot erase this unfolding nightmare as his real “legacy.”
Moreover, despite the fact that the Clinton political machine no longer has the nation’s highest law enforcement offices to employ in its efforts to destroy its political opposition, the style of the recent political character assassinations undoubtedly prove that the political machine is still in operation.
Admittedly, the sinister effort could not have succeeded, had not its targets been in possession of tawdry skeletons in their closets. And those on the political Right would be remiss, were they to overlook such malfeasance in deference to partisan politics.
But neither should they accept the Liberal premise that, as a result of such things, the country ought to henceforth be abandoned to the devices and agenda of the political Left. On every issue, from those very same twisted personal activities, to the very real terrorist threat, the behavior considered acceptable among Liberal Democratss is, and has always been far more contemptible than anything infiltrating the Conservative movement by its imposters.
And, while such behavior will be purged from the Republican ranks as soon as it is found out (the Conservative base would stand for no less), Democrats are invariably willing to obfuscate and overlook anything that might undermine their Liberal agenda. But terrorism cannot be overlooked.
The stakes have not changed. Despite every Liberal effort, Republicans must stay on message. Losing control of the U.S. Congress will lose the terror war.
