Here are a few of this week’s actual headlines along with our factlines.
To protest or not to protest, that is the question … that’s not often asked by liberals. We presume it’s because they really don’t need an actual reason to be disruptive. Any event will do.
Compare a recent conservative disruption to two recent liberal disruptions.
At a Shakespeare in the Park performance, where the President of the United States is assassinated nightly in effigy, two vocal conservatives expressed their disapproval loudly. They’re likely just taking a cue from the theater company’s web site that says “the clash of opposing views leads to truth.”
Compare that to an event where outrage was expressed at the, gasp, saying of a prayer. And another example where merely saying the Pledge of Allegiance gets the same reaction as nails on a chalkboard, drowning a box of kittens or not appropriately genuflecting at the mention of Al Gore’s name.
If these are the types of activities that set off liberals, we need all the hope we can get that they don’t go rabid-raccoon-under-their-car-seat crazy over:
- Peaceful marches
- Red baseball caps
- Congressional baseball practice
- Disposable diapers
Oh… wait… never mind.
