The Left-Wing is Flying without the Rest of the Bird!

THE LEFT WING THAT IS FLYING WITHOUT THE REST OF THE BIRD

 

The only thing that makes me angry is your politics. I can’t stand your self-righteous love of welfare, food stamps, the Democrats, the poor.  Your cowardice coagulates in a bias against motorcycles, boxing and conservative intelligence.

 

You think that you are entitled to your entitlement rather than that is stolen from more worthwhile people.

 

You are a cliché of liberal thought. You misinterpret the perversion of same sex marriage for the right to do what’s wrong. You don’t even know the meaning of wrong.  It is a label you pull off the jar.

 

You self-justify; you live in false assertions like everything deranged Is OK. You are not just a revolution gone awry, an angry bolt against justice. The Harvard Degree on your wall proves that you are a progressive fanatic.  It mocks you. It is the failure of general approval.

 

Your personality is based on opposition, not reasonable justice. You think that “Let them eat cake” justifies the guillotine and then you talk about proportional warfare in Gaza, regardless of the Palestinians using women and children as human shields.

 

You are the contradiction without intelligence. You are the left wing that is flying without the rest of the body. You are the bird that pooped ideological conceit. You are the self-righteousness of someone who is mostly wrong.

 

You are me when I marched against Vietnam in Washington DC and felt that I was superior to the young soldiers  who were dying so that I could have a party in the capital.

 

I pretended that I was against war when all I was against was getting my legs amputated.  I used the wounded as an excuse for my cowardice.  Pacifists lie, brave soldiers die.
