Though I rarely watch Sean Hannity anymore, I’m nevertheless grateful to him for unmercifully pounding away at the Dirty Dems day in and day out. That said, I am obliged to point out a habit of his that makes me cringe when I do watch his show. It’s his seemingly compulsive need to make apologetic, qualifying statements.
Example: Whenever Hannity starts to talk about corruption at the FBI, he immediately interrupts himself and assures his viewers that “This isn’t about the tens of thousands of rank and file FBI agents who are honest, hardworking patriots.”
Question: How does Hannity know that corruption at the FBI is only at the top? All FBI agents have power, and we all know that power corrupts. The only thing different about top-echelon FBI officials is that they have virtually absolute power, and Lord Acton clearly warned us about the danger inherent in such power.
If rank-and-file members of the FBI are so pure, where have all the whistleblowers been throughout the fraudulent Russia-collusion investigation? Certainly, there must be many rank-and-file agents who are aware of at least some of the corruption involved in this massive hoax.
Likewise, Hannity repeatedly says that 98 percent of illegal immigrants are “hardworking, law-abiding people who just want a better life for themselves and their families.” Question: What evidence does he have to back up such a statement?
But being fair to Hannity, he’s far from alone when it comes to this compulsive habit. Such qualifying statements seem to be ingrained in the apologetic psyches of a majority of conservatives. We all remember Malevolent Mitt’s reference to Barack Obama as “a nice guy” and Mush McCain’s calling him “a decent family man.” Question: On what did these two political jellyfish base such statements?
Even the great Laura Ingraham, a giant among conservative populists, had one of those apologetic-twitch moments recently when she said of Michelle Obama, “… for all of her beauty, her glamour, her obvious accomplishments, the former first lady just can’t get past race.” C’mon, Laura, there’s no possible way that you believe Michelle Obama is beautiful, glamourous, or accomplished.
So, why did someone of Laura Ingraham’s exalted status say such a thing? I call it “the conservative apologist twitch,” a kind of nervous self-intimidation. Radical Left zombies are so vicious that conservatives intimidate themselves into believing that they have to prove they are kind, gracious, fair-minded people.
Sorry to break the news to those who can’t seem to rid themselves of the conservative apologist twitch: The Dirty Dems are not impressed! In fact, they’re laughing at you. And they certainly will never respond in kind.
That’s right, the enemies conservatives face day in and day out never qualify anything and never apologize for their words or actions, no matter how despicable they may be. On the contrary, they religiously stick to the teachings of dear leader Saul Alinsky: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” No apologist twitch in that, for sure.
Wake up, conservatives!
The Real Immigration Issue
I was glad to hear someone finally touch on the real immigration issue when Rush Limbaugh appeared on Fox News Sunday, because it’s a subject that has annoyed me for quite some time. However, since Rush didn’t make the point as crystal clear as I would have liked, I will try to do so here.
When it comes to illegal immigration, everyone — including Donald Trump and most Republicans — is focused primarily on drug smuggling and violent crime. They have fallen into the same old diversion trap that the Dirty Dems spring on them on just about every major issue: Divert the focus of the debate away from the foundational issue and bog everyone down in minutia:
“Undocumented immigrants commit less crime than regular citizens.”
“Most drugs are coming in through ports of entry, so a wall would not help prevent it.”
“Undocumented immigrants contribute to the economy.”
Blah, blah, blah.
All of these “arguments” are intended to distract from the real issue — illegal immigration itself. Drugs and other crimes are just subsets of the underlying problem — i.e., that millions of illegals have entered the United States over the past 50 years and are continuing to do so today. (The fact that most of these illegal immigrants are poor and low skilled is, again, just a subset of the underlying problem.)
Advice to President Trump: When it comes to illegal immigration, stop talking about drugs and crime, as it only invites debate from the Loathsome Left. Instead, focus on the indisputable fact that entering the United States without government authority to do so is, of and by itself, a violation of laws passed long ago by both Republicans and Democrats.
The real solution to illegal immigration is to do whatever it takes to put an end to all illegal immigration. If you stop illegals from entering the country, you stop all of the subsets of illegal immigration in the process, which includes drugs and other serious crimes.
C’mon, guys, stop tiptoeing on this subject and get to the heart of the issue: All men, women, and children who are in the United States illegally should be removed — immediately. No discussion needed. And no, compassion is not a justification for breaking the law. Sorry about that, Dems.
Bob “Perv” Menendez Back in Form
Speaking of illegal immigration, suspected pedophile New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, who escaped a long stint in prison in 2018 by the skin of his teeth, is apparently pursuing a career in standup comedy. In his latest attack on Donald Trump, Menendez said that “if you cross the border undocumented, (Trump) has now made you a criminal.” Attempting to outdo himself, he went on to say, “If a person has a ‘driving while under the influence’ violation, he is now making that, saying that that’s a criminal.”
Hey, Bobby: Trump doesn’t need to make DUIs and illegal entry into the United States criminal offenses. They already are! Both of them have been codified law in this country for decades.
