Barack Hussein Obama was so excited to get a chance to select a Supreme Court Justice, he crashed the White House press briefing to announce the news.
While telling the lapdog press force what kind of justice he'd be looking for; he defined modern liberalism:
Now, the process of selecting someone to replace Justice Souter is among my most serious responsibilities as President. So I will seek somebody with a sharp and independent mind and a record of excellence and integrity. I will seek someone who understands that justice isn't about some abstract legal theory or footnote in a case book. It is also about how our laws affect the daily realities of people's lives -- whether they can make a living and care for their families; whether they feel safe in their homes and welcome in their own nation.
I view that quality of empathy, of understanding and identifying with people's hopes and struggles as an essential ingredient for arriving as just decisions and outcomes. I will seek somebody who is dedicated to the rule of law, who honors our constitutional traditions, who respects the integrity of the judicial process and the appropriate limits of the judicial role. I will seek somebody who shares my respect for constitutional values on which this nation was founded, and who brings a thoughtful understanding of how to apply them in our time.
Emphasis is mine by the way. All the other parts about honoring constitution is just lip service. If you say the things I highlight, you cannot be honoring the constitution. This is how truly modern liberals think. Constitution and laws do not matter.
If a criminal robbed a bank and we have laws in our books instructing us what the punishment should be; liberals want to first look at the "daily realities of this robber's life" to try to understand his hopes and struggles. If they conclude that this poor robber is a victim of heartless capitalist society laws do not matter. They will let him go.
When fanatic islamists who hate America spend years plotting a major attack on Americans with goal of killing as many Americans as they can and they succeed; modern liberals' knee-jerk reaction is to blame America and Americans. They show empathy towards blood-thirsty murderers.
Here is the important part to keep in mind though: Most people regard modern liberals' approach either as idiotic, stupid, ignorant or misinformed and cowardly. This is where the conservatives are making a mistake.
Folks , this is all part of a scheme concocted by modern liberals to destroy western civilization. They are with the enemies of western civilization. They take the side of perverts, criminals, murderers, mass murderers and terrorists. They claim to show empathy and understanding to these people and blame capitalism and western civilization for these people's acts. The reason modern liberals do this is not because they are idealists, idiots, ignorants or misinformed cowards. They do this because it helps them in their own goal of destroying capitalism and western civilization.
Consider the following points:
1) Have you ever seen or heard modern liberals trying to show empathy and understanding to corporate executives who are charged with white collar crimes? I remember liberals in congress demanding jail sentences way more than murderers get for Enron executives. Why do you think that is?
2) Have you ever seen or heard modern liberals trying to show empathy and understanding to pro-lifers who exercise their first amendment rights? Have you noticed how they try to criminalize them? How about the recent tea parties? Was there any effort on the part of liberals to try to understand it? No they wanted to demonize the participants who were ordinary, hard working Americans. Why?
3) Check out the communist countries folks. It seems like they have no crime, homeless problem doesn't it? Even if there is a problem it never is the fault of communist system, isn't it? You see folks when modern liberals turn this country into a communist one then they will be for swift punishment of petty criminals, murderers and terrorists. They will completely stop the empathy BS.
Modern liberalism is all about destroying capitalism and the Western Civilization. That's why Barack Hussein Obama was so giddy. He could not believe that he got the chance to send a marxist like himself to the highest court of the land. Unbelievable!
