Hating Liberal Ideas

HATING LIBERAL IDEAS

 

 

It’s not you but your ideas that I hate.

How can you be liberal in a world where give-aways come

Back to haunt you and the silk fabric of society unwinds

Into cheap rayon?

 

A large bureaucracy is the hypocrisy of welfare laziness.

The bigger the institutions the smaller the brains.

 

It’s not that I hate you because you are progressive

But that I have progressed into rejecting

The forward leaning world of Obama and his sophomoric

Acolytes.

 

Forward: a communist term.

Forward—a lie for backwards.

Progressive—a return to minor ideas.

 

Obama ran on change.

Failure is not staying the same.

X marks the spot.

Our lives are rashed with Obama rot.

 

He left us the spare change of our marginal dignity and

A country that is a mere etch-a-sketch copy of America,

The former great pragmatic utopia in the sky,

The previous land of free speech where political correctness

Did not dominate the fruited plains.

 

Our alabaster cities no longer gleam;

Obama used racism to burn our buildings down.

He was supposed to fall on our country as gentle as the rain.

Brother hood has become “brother,”

A black term for separation,

As divisive as “ Big Brother” in communism.

 

I have liked liberals.

I used to be one.

But if you can’t grow up you grow out of relevance

And destroy our constitutional traditions with drag queens

Running around throwing bibles at the jeering rabble.

 

You think that you are a good person because you don’t want

Dzhokhar executed.

Stumps running around Boston.

What have you given to the missing legs and the dead?

Do you think that three meals a day of prison food

Is sufficient punishment?

 

Where are the scales of justice?

In one dish Dzhokhar snacking in his jail cell.

In the other,  one hundred and eighty

People writhing in pain.

Their bones sprinkled with three dead.

This is the weight of terrorism.

Dzokhar rising about the weight of his evil.

 

This is the jihad that Obama can’t pronounce.

He swallows his forked tongue.

 

I celebrate Dzhokhar’s execution.

It won’t bring the dead back or grow hair on artificial limbs.

Death be not proud: Dzhokhar is not a worthy warrior.

The cowardice of a sneak attack is the Muslim culture

Attacking from behind.

Is Obama leading from behind because he can’t face

Our cultural history when he is too interested in assassinating

America’s ethos?

 

The liberals mourn Dzhokhar’s execution because they

Are stupid enough to think that two wrongs don’t make a right.

But they do.

The second one cancels out the first and balances the scales.

What do liberals know?

They are morons when they grow old like de Blasio and Obama,

Patting themselves on the back,

Kissing each other’s butts

And failing to read the headlines that they are yesterday’s news.
