You know, the level of hypocrisy continually exhibited by those on the left never ceases to amaze. I mean, it was just recently that we heard Hitlery criticizing Bernie Sanders for what she called his “free this and free that and free everything” philosophy. But yet it seems to me that it’s that very philosophy that has been part of the Democrat platform for decades and to now ridicule Sanders for supporting it seems a bit hypocritical. After all, Bernie is far from being the first one to ever make such promises, and I seem to recall hearing much the same from Barry.
And it struck me as being more than just a little odd how it was really not all that long ago, politically speaking, that Hitlery was going after Jeb Bush for trying to make the very same point that she is now trying to make in her attempt to go after Bernie. Of course, when she was attacking Bush for pointing out the Democrat philosophy that advocates the giving away of all manner of free stuff, and the more free stuff the better, it was at a time when she was beating Bernie Sanders pretty handily. However, that race has now gotten very much closer.
For those who may not remember, it was during some campaign event in South Carolina that Bush was asked how he planned to appeal to black voters. Bush responded by saying, “Our message is one of hope and aspiration.” He went on to say, “It isn’t one of division and get in line and we’ll take care of you with free stuff. Our message is one that is uplifting — that says you can achieve earned success.” What Bush said is factual, yet those who have been on the receiving end of so much free stuff and who should have been listening, weren’t.
And it was in her response to that statement that Hitlery, back in September, took a not so subtle jab at Jeb. She said, “I think people are seeing this for what it is: Republicans’ lecturing people of color instead of offering real solutions to help people get ahead, including facing up to hard truths about race and justice in America.” The Democrats have been proposing these “real solutions” for “people of color” for over 50 years. And how much have these ‘real solutions’ improved the lives of anyone over that same period of time?
And it was Hitlery who would go one to say, “Republicans have no problem promising tax breaks and sweetheart deals to their corporate friends, but when Democrats fight to make sure all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care, early childhood education and job training, that’s giving away “free stuff”? Now does she mean the kind of quality, affordable healthcare that was provided to us by the creation of Obamacare? Because from where I’m sitting, under the Democrats, healthcare has been made to be lacking in both quality and affordability!
But then in what was a pretty obvious flip-flop on the whole ‘free stuff’ thing, it was at a campaign event in Nevada just this past Thursday, that Hitlery seemed to be quite comfortable in borrowing a line from Jeb’s playbook in taking a direct shot at Bernie. She said, “I’m not just making speeches and not just promising free this and free that and free everything.” Sanders, as we know, is a devout socialist who supports nationalized health care and “free” tuition to public colleges and universities. And Hitlery now says that Sanders’ proposals are unrealistic.
As someone who could never be a Democrat, for any number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that my IQ is a higher number than my shoe size, it would all seem to be just a bit disingenuous of Hitlery to be going after Bernie for doing nothing more than what Democrats have been doing for as long as I can remember. That being, the promising of all manner of ‘free stuff.’ But what the recipients of that ‘free stuff’ seem unable to grasp is the fact that there are always going to be strings attached to all that free stuff. It’s either that or they just don’t care.
