Hey MSNBC... Racist much??

No words for the unabashed racism found within the liberal ilk.  Wow... just... wow.  I think it's apparent who the real racists are in this nation (hint, NOT Conservatives).  A family takes in a child of a different race who would otherwise most likely be "in the system" and probably not have such a great life and this is how they get treated?  Did they have the same comments for Brad and Angelina?  Oh.. that's right, they are liberal so you mustn't make fun of them.  Nothing like groupthink to keep us sharp. *when are these lemmings going to find the cliff???

Hat tip Newsbusters 

*Update:  MHP did just apologize so, there is that.  Still, the entire clip does kinda provide a window into the soul of liberals, does it not?

One Tin Soldier Rides Away...

UGH!!!  How did I miss this?!?!?  Tom Laughlin, 82, Star of ‘Billy Jack’ Movie Series, Dies

I grew up watching and idolizing him in the Billy Jack movies!  Tough to determine who inspired me the most to learn self defense between him and David Carradine as Kwai Chang Cain!  Both of these fine actors and their craft are what I credit with helping to turn me in to the man I am today.  That is, a rugged individualist, lover of freedom, defender of the downtrodden, patriot, mistrusting of government, and heavily engaged in self defense of my person, property, family, and Nation.  No, I'm not a caped crusader by any stretch but I am (as you may have gathered) a staunch Constitutionalists which, by it's very nature makes me leery of government in any form.  Hence, the aforementioned description.

The only reason I bring this up is that it's kinda odd that one could credit (or blame) Hollywood for the man I've become.  Sure, there are many more external influences responsible (family, experience & education to name a few).  But to be reflective on this, I do recall watching the old shows and thinking to myself, maybe I should learn self defense just in case there ever comes a day I run in to bad guys.  Even though I grew up in a VERY rural area, I still saw the news and read the papers and understood what sort of bad things happened elsewhere.  

It was also parts of these bastions of entertainment that had me thinking that one day... maybe... albeit a long shot, government officials (at any level) could be corrupt and try to take away my liberties.  (i know, I know... that's just crazy talk).  This could be blamed on the movies as well as a few hippie wannabe teachers I had telling me daily to "always question authority!"  "Never trust the government!"  Surprisingly, these folks were as liberal as they come!  I wonder if they ever thought that any of their students would keep that advice close to heart and use it when the LSD crowd gains the upper hand?  Hmmm.... the strangeness of life cannot be measured.  "One Tin Soldier Rides Away...."

Wolf Anyone?

As I was having a heated (yet respectful) debate with a liberal relative I haven't seen in many moons, I was reminded of the old story I heard growing up called "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." If you're unfamiliar with it, look it up and pay close attention to the lesson the story imparts. 
The reason I was reminded of it was that when I pointed out many of the lies & scandals of the Obama administration, my dear uncle had heard enough & informed me that I'm a racist. Meeeee? "Yes, you! You hate it that a black man is in the White House!" I resisted the urge to point out that he's actually only half black, no slave blood, and the description he used is widely unpopular with the liberal crowd. But, being the consummate 'bigger man' I resisted.
Me, with a spouse not of my race; me, friends of nearly every race I can think of; me, one of the few kids who was friends with my high school's only student of African decent (we'll call him Stan) & remained his friend even when he came out of the closet. Keep in mind folks, this was "Smallville USA" at a time when that wasn't so popular. Yeah, I was ostracized & got in some fights over this. But Stan was a good person, that's all I knew or needed. The whole point of this paragraph was to point out stuff that dear uncle knows.
The accusation barely registered with me. Why you may ask? Because I've heard this waaaayyyy too many times. Not only from liberals who are losing to me in a debate, but from the likes of the MSNBC crowd. Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ed Shulze and the usual bouquet of useful idiots.  in Hollywood.
Liberals, this tactic may have worked about 10 years ago but your overuse of it in recent years has watered it down. Years back if you accused someone of being a racist you could get them to give up their own mother and back-peddle any opinion they had just to prove their innocence. Today, not so much. You throw the accusation about on a whim when you don't have a constructive retort to support your views. When cornered in a debate or at a loss of an explanation as to why someone don't agree or conform, you cry racist.
In some cases I'd dismiss this as the last resort of a weak mind. But, the aforementioned TV "news" personalities I think they actually believe that the tactic works.
Bottom line... you've watered down the word and it's effectiveness.  Nowadays, whenever it's thrown out there to try and deride a conservative, we all smile to ourselves knowingly, we've won.
