Back in 2004 I wrote the blog piece below at PoliticalTruths.info. What is amazing is that after 10 years their behavior got worse.
- They denied relief for Americans struggling with predatory student loans.
- They denied struggling Americans an extension to unemployment compensation.
- They denied millions of poor Americans the Medicaid Expansion to Obamacare.
Who are The New Pharisees? Right Wing Conservative Republicans
Watching the Right Wing Conservative Republicans bring memories of Sunday school classes into perfect perspective. It is amazing that the same behavior exhibited by the Pharisees in biblical times are once again upon us. This is not the first time such has occurred in our country's history. Fortunately for our society" these people ultimately get exposed " less we forget Jim Bakker , Jimmy Swaggert, Jim Jones, David Koresh among many others.
We need not look too far to find the hypocrisy of these Pharisees.
- President George W Bush our morally superior president was arrested for drunk driving.
- The red states have a much higher divorce rate that the blue states. Moreover" Massachusetts has the lowest divorce rate in the country.
- Bill Bennett the conservative bastion of morality is a high rolling gambler.
- Dr. Laura Schlessinger the moral crusader posed for porn styled pictures.
- Rush Limbaugh the ultra conservative that wanted all drug addicts locked up with the keys thrown away is himself a druggy.
- Congressman Dan Burton persecuted Bill Clinton for his infidelities without divulging his more serious transgression" an illegitimate child he did not claim publicly.
- Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth persecuted Bill Clinton for his infidelities without divulging her own many infidelities.
- Speaker Newt Gingrich was ruthless in bringing down many politicians while himself having extramarital affairs divorcing his first of many wives when she contracted cancer as well as being reprimanded by the house for poor campaign finance violations.
Many more prominent conservatives could be named but the picture is clear. While a similar list could be composed for progressives the fact is they never claimed superior morals or for that matter attempted to impose them on others.
Progressive liberals have been very weak in exposing the hypocrisy of the right. Unless a willingness to do so is effected then the country will continue to migrate towards the Dark Ages.
