oh. my. god.
this book has, apparently, been out since 2006, but somehow i have just learned about this today. according to the website hawking this book:
"Why Mommy is a Democrat brings to life the core values of the Democratic party in ways that young children will easily understand and thoroughly enjoy. Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical
illustrations, this colorful 28-page paperback depicts the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, and concern for the well-being of others. It's a great way for parents to gently communicate their commitment to these principles and explain their support for the party.
Why Mommy is a Democrat may look like a traditional children's book, but it definitely isn't just for children. With numerous subtle (and not-so-subtle) satirical swipes at the Bush administration and the Republican party, Why Mommy will appeal to Democrats of all ages!
first of all, who knew the democrats had principles of fairness, tolerance, peace and concern for the well-being of others? second of all, how can you take satirical swipes, subtle or otherwise, using non-judgmental language?
let's examine these things shall we? in her post on monday, angel pointed out "One man’s 'hate speech' is another man’s Truth." generally speaking, anything a conservative says that a liberal disagrees with is "hate speech". conversely, anything a liberal says, no matter how ridiculous, illogical or hateful, is "truth". got it? so, if i, as a conservative, cannot say anything you, as a democrat, disagree with then for whom is there fairness?
when i look at the democrat party, i see that there is tolerance for illegal aliens. tolerance for islamists, regardless of how "radical". i see bashing of our men and women in arms - whether currently standing in harm's way or not. i see denial of the rights of christians. i see the bashing of conservatives. i see the embracing of homosexuals so long as they are not republicans. i see the promotion of children so long as those children are not espousing anything that is conservative in nature - otherwise the poor child is just mislead or ignorant.
i fail to see how this qualifies democrats as "tolerant". it is simply group think, which is very close to mob rules, to embrace everything that mirrors your beliefs while bashing and dismissing anyone who does not.nothing's going to hurt you tonight, not on my watch" just so the dems have right to say idiotic things promotes peace. or how bypassing the president to meet with the syrian president (and other leaders in the middle east) promotes peace. or how teaching our children that the war of northern aggression was about slavery and that we owe reparations forever more to all "persons of color" promotes peace. or tolerance. or fairness.
i also fail to understand how promoting tolerance towards people who want to kill us promotes peace. or how denigrating the people willing to stand on that ground and say "
as for "concern for the well-being of others" they can stuff it. government simply has no business taking care of me or mine. especially my children. or yours. ever notice that when it comes to abortion a "woman's right to choose" is sacrosanct, but once she's decided to keep the kid all choices must be sanctioned by the government?!? ever notice, as i have, that the majority of people who are vegetarians because of the idea of "cruelty to animals" is pro abortion? ever notice that, in democrat speak, concern for others only exists in so far as it can garner them votes?
it is my experience that democrats are none of these things. that democrats have only one goal and that is to establish a socialist utopia here in our country. well no thank you.
btw, did you happen to notice what the momma squirrel is protecting her young from? anyone else ever had the thought that democrats must wish that their party animal to be a mouse instead of a donkey?
